• Throwback to Hong Kong

    Some time back, 2 years ago to be exact, I made an impromptu trip to Hong Kong. To the extent that I only bought air tickets 2 days before I travelled. There was a Super Show concert to be held in Hong Kong and my friends were travelling there, so I thought why not join in the fun. It was a trip to recharge myself before I start on my new employment. Though I couldn’t secure a concert ticket at the original price in the end, and I gave up on the concert. The trip still went well with many meet ups planned with old friends. Lots of good food, gossips and…

  • Descendants of the Sun: Song Joongki’s Treat at 한라산

    With the high viewership rating and all the love received from public, Song Joongki gave a treat to the entire drama team of Descendants of the Sun on 01 April. Due to the overwhelming amount of people crowding the place, they even changed a restaurant at the very last minute. The media still caught hold of the news and flocked to the new restaurant in no time. Look at the crowd. Song Joongki came out for a while to greet the media and allowed photographs to be taken. Thanks to the media photos, I managed to find the address of the restaurant they visited! The barbeque restaurant opens til late and…

  • Descendants of the Sun: 서래갈매기

    Have you watched episode 13 of Descendants of the Sun? After Yoo Sijin and Seo Daeyoung returned to Seoul from Urk, they got 3 days leave which they decided to spend their time drinking. The place where they struggled to stay awake from 72 hours of drinking is situated in Seoul! I was screen capturing the scenes of this episode and went a little overboard because I simply couldn’t resist the drunk and cute Song Joongki. (Coughs) This place is fairly easy to reach, as compared to the dal.komm coffee cafes I introduced previously. How to get to 서래갈매기 Hop on the subway to Hoegi Station and take exit 1. Come out…

  • Descendants of the Sun: dal.komm Coffee [02]

    I am back with another filming venue of drama Descendants of the Sun! I must warn you though, this place is not in Seoul either. Good news is this place can be easily accessible via subway as well, like the one mentioned in my previous post! Episode 1 where Song Joongki and Jingoo sat down at a cafe after catching thief Kim Minsuk and sending him off to a hospital. The two of them each sat with a soft toy that Lee Kwangsoo wanted them to take, for them never to return to his shop. This is once again, another dal.komm Coffee outlet. How to get to dal.komm Coffee Hop…

  • Descendants of the Sun: dal.komm Coffee

    If you have not heard about the new Korea drama “Descendants of the Sun”, you are definitely missing out. Starring Song Joongki and Song Hyekyo, episode 6 of this drama has already broken the viewership record of drama “My Love From the Star” last episode. Song Joongki has captured so many female hearts that there is now a term “송중기 효과 (Song Joongki Effect)”. I am obsessed with this drama myself and I am too embarrassed to say how many times I have watched and re-watched the episodes so far. To distract myself a little, I went to search for the filming sites that had appeared in the drama so far.…

  • It has been a while, Taiwan!

    I went Taipei to attend a wedding last November. Re-visiting Taiwan wasn’t on my travel plan last year, but since it’s a close friend’s wedding, I just had to tweak my plan a little. I took the chance to meet up some old friends whom I haven’t seen in years. A couple I’ve known has opened a cafe and retail store. The place wasn’t hard to find at all. Doesn’t the sitting area looks cozy and feels like you can sit back and relax in it all day? I love natural sunlight in a cafe. While we were there the whole time, they didn’t switch on any lights at all. This…

  • Christmas 2015

    2015 Christmas is a merry one, I must say. Though a planned trip didn’t take place due to unforeseen circumstances, like a fan meet was confirmed through Korea media, but didn’t take place at all. So the money that was put aside for this trip was squandered on a staycation locally instead. We didn’t do anything at all the entire day. The gym gear that I brought and the swimming suit that I packed were both unused. We just ate and sleep, woke up to eat and go back to sleep. It must have been too hectic a schedule for my body that I ended up getting sick after the…

  • Returning to Childhood in Seoul

    Back to my Korea trip in July! 4 months has passed since my trip and boy, I am missing Korea so badly. Everyone of us woke up to an empty and growling stomach. Butterfinger Pancakes to save the morning! When I said I haven’t tried Butterfinger Pancakes before, I received gasps from my friends who couldn’t believe me missing out on the goodness. Please do not belittle the quantity. As much as the 5 of us wanted to stuff these delicious plates of food into our stomach, we simply couldn’t anymore. I felt like if I had continue stuffing, I’d need to loosen the button on my shorts.If you haven’t tried (gasp at you) and…

  • Running Man EP262: Taxi Drivers’ Restaurant Race [02]

    I am back with Part 2 of the Taxi Drivers’ Restaurant Race broadcast on 30 August 2015! This post has taken longer than expected because I went overseas for a short trip and busy with work. Yeah, all the excuses. It’s plainly because I was lazy. A whole lot of pictures in this post, so less words. Yay for you! Hope you are full when reading this post though. Or you’ll end up like me, always taking a break from the post to fill my tummy with meat. Are you ready? Let’s go! Gary, Haha and Nam Bora were first brought to eat Kimchi Stew (김치찌개) at a restaurant near Hongdae.…

  • Running Man EP262: Taxi Drivers’ Restaurant Race [01]

    It took me some time to come up with this post because I usually write at night when it’s all peaceful and quiet to pen my thoughts, but having to look at all these food photos are apparently too much for my mental state to fight the hunger pangs.  The same reason why I don’t follow foodie accounts on Instagram. Episode 262 of Running Man is a race where members board a random taxi and have the driver recommend a dish. If the dish coincides with the team’s previously chosen dish, the team wins. Else, the team will have to eat whatever dish the driver recommended, before boarding the next taxi. This…
