Take a Tour of Korea's First Capsule Hotel!

If you're interested in travel in Japan, you've probably heard about capsule hotels.


A capsule is literally a bed and that's it, almost in a locker-style set up that makes claustrophobic people lose their minds.

Korea has finally opened one up in the Incheon International Airport, but its a lot different from what you're probably thinking :)

Come take a tour!

Meenakshi Amman Temple
Meenakshi Amman Temple, also known as Minakshi-Sundareshwara Temple, is one of the oldest and most important temples in India. Located in the city of Madurai, the temple has great mythological and historical significance. It is believed that Lord Shiva assumed the form of Sundareswarar (the handsome one) and married Parvati (Meenakshi) at the site where the temple is currently located. Renowned for its amazing architecture, the Meenakshi temple was nominated as one of the wonders of the world, but failed to make the list of the "Seven Wonders of the World". However, the temple is definitely one of the "Wonders of India". It is also one of south India's top attractions with thousands of devotees crowding it every day. During the "Tirukalyanam Festival", which takes place over a period of 10 days, the temple attracts more than one million devotees. Even though many people visit it every day, the temple is well maintained and was named the "Best Iconic Place of Swachh" (the cleanest iconic place) in India. According to a legend, Meenakshi emerged from a "Yajna" (sacred fire) when she was a three-year-old girl. The "Yajna" was performed by a king named Malayadwaja Pandya along with his wife Kanchanamalai. Since the royal couple had no children, the King offered his prayers to Lord Shiva, asking him to grant them a son. But to her dismay, a three-breasted girl emerged from the sacred fire. When Malayadwaja and his wife expressed concern about the girl's abnormal appearance, a divine voice ordered them not to worry about the girl's physical appearance. They were also informed that the girl's third breast will disappear as soon as she meets her future husband. The relieved king appointed her Meenakshi and, in due course, crowned her as his successor. Meenakshi ruled the ancient city of Madurai and also went on to capture the neighboring kingdoms. Legend has it that he even captured Indralok, the abode of Lord Indra, and was also on his way to capture Kailash, the abode of Lord Shiva. When Shiva appeared before her, Meenakshi's third breast disappeared and she knew she had met her half-orange. Shiva and Meenakshi returned to Madurai where their wedding took place. It is said that the wedding was attended by all the gods and goddesses. Since Parvati herself had assumed the form of Meenakshi, Lord Vishnu, Parvati's brother, handed it over to Lord Shiva. Even today, the wedding ceremony is celebrated every year as "Chithirai Thiruvizha", which is also known as "Tirukalyanam" (the big wedding). The history of the Meenakshi temple dates back to the first century AD.C. and scholars claim that it is as old as the city itself. Kulashekarar Pandyan, a king who ruled the Pandyan dynasty, is said to have built the temple according to instructions given in his dream by Lord Shiva. Some religious texts belonging to the first to the fourth century AD.C speak of the temple and describe it as the central structure of the city. Texts dating from the early sixth century describe the temple as a place where scholars met to discuss important issues. However, the temple as it stands today was rebuilt throughout the sixteenth century, as it was destroyed by Muslim invaders. During the fourteenth century E.C., Malik Kafur, a commander of the Delhi Sultanate, led his army to most of southern India and looted many temples, including the famous Meenakshi Temple. Valuables such as gold, silver and precious gems were brought to Delhi. Since temples in those days had an abundance of valuables, most of the temples were destroyed and left in ruins. When the Vijayanagar Empire seized Madurai after defeating the Muslim Sultanate, the temple was rebuilt and reopened. The temple was further expanded in the late sixteenth and early seventeenth centuries by Vishwanatha Nayakar, a king of the Nayaka dynasty. According to the researchers, while rebuilding the temple, the rulers of the Nayaka dynasty followed the architectural style of 'Silpa Shastras'. 'Silpa Shastras' is a set of architectural laws found in ancient texts. The temple was once again expanded by Thirumalai Nayak, who ruled Madurai from 1623 to 1655. During his reign, many "Mandapams" (aisles with pillars) were built. Later, the temple was expanded by many later rulers of Nayaka before the arrival of the British East India Company. The temple was again degraded and parts of it were destroyed during British rule. In 1959, Tamil Hindus began restoration work by collecting donations and collaborating with historians and engineers. The temple was completely restored in 1995.
In a luxury villa you can forget the stress of everyday life
Vacation - for many people the best time of the year. A time when you can just let all five be, as the saying goes. This works twice as well with the right holiday home. Many are anxious to experience a certain luxury on vacation and then often both the country and the accommodation are chosen. Many people forget the obvious when planning their vacation: Renting a Amalfi coast villas at the sea in summer brings a whole lot more freedom, comfort and relaxation with it than a stay in a 5-star hotel. Why it is like that? Because in a holiday home that you have rented for yourself or your family, you have the entire area to yourself. Here you can enjoy absolute peace, privacy and relaxation - and still have the opportunity to leaving home at any time and immersing yourself in the life of the cities near your accommodation. From evening visits to a restaurant to long party nights, from long hikes and bike rides to long days on the beach to adventures such as rafting, climbing or various other sports on land or water - when you return to your luxury villa in the evening exhausted, you will The amenities that await you here can be appreciated even more. Even if a vacation at the lake is nice, sometimes it just has to be the sea. For an unforgettable stay, book a luxury villa right on the beach, where you can sit on the terrace in the evening under the stars, look down on a private stretch of beach and listen to the sound of the waves. If you have the opportunity to look out at the sea from your private pool - maybe also an infinity pool - the stress of everyday life will quickly be replaced by a comfortable feeling of wellbeing and deep relaxation. Great destinations for a chic holiday by the sea are the North Sea and Baltic Sea, the Spanish or Croatian coast or one of the European islands such as Santorini, Luxury Villas Sardinia or Ibiza , where numerous luxury villas are waiting for you. Rent a luxury villa in the mountains A luxury Zermatt chalets is also something very special as an accommodation in the mountains. Regardless of whether the summer provides warmth and sunshine outside, whether spring heralds the awakening of nature, whether autumn lets the winds whistle over the mountains or whether winter has brought the snow - in your own luxury villa in the middle of dreamy mountain landscapes you will definitely be enjoy an unforgettable vacation. The Alps are of course predestined for this, where you can climb the peaks in the warm half of the year or ski down them in the cold season. Then warm up in the in-house sauna or whirlpool and then enjoy a fine dinner in front of the romantic mountain backdrope
What an architect actually do ?
I think the general public thinks that architects are actually engineers or that the same thing. And they're not. and that i just want to actually briefly touch on what an architect does, what their role is. If you would like to be one what that appears like. All right, so first I'm gonna say I feel there are a few differing types of architects. consider myself, there are technical architects who are specialized at understanding how things go together, like building details, all the systems that enter a building and therefore the technical aspects of a building, then business architects - people that are specialized at understanding how a business is operated, but might not be that that well tuned when it involves designing or the technical aspects. So if you're brooding about hiring an architect otherwise you want to become an architect just keep that in your mind, that there is not only one track that you simply need to be. therefore the primary role of an architect is what i'd call a "conductor of buildings' '. i feel once I consider music and that i feel like a conductor, the conductor knows what all of the instruments should be playing, but might not have the talents to play every single instrument within the symphony or no matter the band or whatever it's . and that is really what an architect does: they concentrate on how they're going to assemble these instruments together to make something that basically makes plenty of sense. Now an architect, i might say, may be a jack-of-all-trades during a lot of the way . It's Important for an architect to know tons about the HVAC, the plumbing, the electrical, the small print , like how the Assembly's carpentry, tilework. Basically all of the trades literally jack-of-all-trades is that the architect's job on top of understanding code, understanding how a project goes through, coordinating with a client, ensuring that they understand the process and what's happening, and serving as a middleman between the client and therefore the contractor. To sort of, like break things down, so as that everyone is on the same page. So there's parts of engineering that an architect does, but the architect doesn't necessarily do the structural engineering for the building. Architects are able to do that , but i might say that the bulk of architects unless they're more towards that technical side that I wont to be talking about, don't do this because it's a liability. They'll hire somebody else and that they do this with just about everything that they are doing . They hire sub consultants that then advise them on what they ought to do. which so a structural engineer, a engineer , engineer - those sort of engineers and designers will we'll hire to be a neighborhood of their team then the architect becomes the conductor, ensuring that each one of these parts of the team is sensible , so it is the architects you have to know everything that's going into a building and make it work essentially. And Make it beautiful. That's really, I think, what the architect does it is the architect's job to verify that each one of those things coming together, add up for what the client wants in terms of an aesthetic appearance. then when construction starts to form sure that the contractor whoever's building the project is adhering to what the architect is drawn. The "design intent" is what it's called. therefore the drawings communicate the design intent to the contractor then the contractor is supposed to make thereto design intent, but many things get missed in drawings or even can get overlooked, is probably a far better thanks to put it and it is the architect's job to be onsite, to be ready to means various things maybe the architect is looking at. I mean, what percentage times have you ever read a book, an entire page of or a hope for instance an entire chapter of a book and you do not remember all the small print . is actually what happens when a contractor takes it on employment . It's their job to know all that stuff, but sometimes things get missed therefore the architect is there to mention "hey, this is often really important, we'd like to form sure this gets hit". So, this certain requirement is met. So, that's really i feel the only because of describe what an architect does, is do the design , confirm that everything is wise from a functional and programmatic point of view then to coordinate all the sub consultants that are putting their stuff inside the building, all the things that make the building work, confirm that which will be incorporated and doesn't detract from the beauty of the architecture and really confirm that it works. So hopefully it's helped shed some light on what an architect does for you. please visit my website for house plans , elevation designs structural designs https://nimblestudios.in/

Kpop is Actually Born from Korean Protest Songs
Alright so I'm a total history nerd, I majored in East Asian Studies and eat stuff like this up. Read the full (long!) article here - I will try to explain it basically, but its really worth the read. Here we go: It all started with Japan. As you might know, Japan colonized Korea eventually trying to erase Korean culture all together on the peninsula. In the very beginning though, that wasn't the case. Japan was willing to share Korean and Japanese culture, and the Japanese and Korean elite often spoke together and traded pop culture. Japanese elite brought over Western-influenced music because of their connections with the Western world (which Korea didn't interact with other than missionaries at the time) The Korean elite wanted to be modern and successful like Japan, so they adopted this music (called Changga) as their new favorite genre. (You can hear a lot of European influences in early Korean music...) This is where it gets interesting. The Korean elite wanted to be independent of Japan. They wanted Korea to stand alone as a strong nation, not pushed around by China or Japan anymore. They stared the pro-independence movement. Now, most revolutions like this would turn to traditional music, traditional culture to strengthen the country (for example, Korea would use ancient Korean songs to protest the Japanese occupation) but the Korean elite didn't! They wanted Korea to be strong, and to be strong they felt like they needed to modernize - ie be like the West. They used this Changga music (ironically brought to them by Japan) to protest Japanese rule! To this day Korea is always trying to "keep up with" the Western world so that they can be considered modern and powerful. Most things that they do is to modernize and stay trendy because that is how the country has always defined strength. But then, Japan decided to make money off of that... Japan had seen its first real pop music hit in 1914. People were buying records, following tabloids, and really getting into pop culture. That was really the birth of the Japanese music industry. In 1926, Korea had a similar experience. A song called the "Death Song" appeared, sung by Yun Shim-Deok. The singer committed suicide with her lover right after the song was released and the story made HUGE headlines. It was chilling, 'romantic,' and dramatic. Korea ate it up. Japanese record companies came in and started selling the record, selling over 50,000 copies! (In 1926 that number is totally insane!) You can listen to the death song here: The record industry after that was run mainly by the Japanese yakuza and their partnered Korean gangsters. The industry was set up very similar to how it is now, with entertainment industries doing everything in-house (SM has specific song writers that only work for SM, and their artists are actors, singers, models, etc) This is also why so many Kpop artists become actors...because even back in the 1920s musicians couldn't make enough money so the real way to make a living was through acting. That still stands today. So, today's Kpop is based off of this first "Korean pop" hit (the death song) AND protest songs against Japan. So when people say that Kpop is just a copy of Western music, they're sort of right but not in the way that they're thinking. Yes, its a reflection of Western culture, but the reason behind it is that Korea has been fighting to be recognized as a modern, powerful force to be reckoned with since the early 1900s. They want people to know Korea is strong, modern, and a country to look up to, not look down upon. So the next time someone tells you Kpop is a lame copy of American pop - give them this little history lesson. Again, PLEASE read the full article - its so interesting! HERE it is!
