Authentic Bibimbap in Jeonju

During my long long trip to Korea in April, I left Seoul and visited my friend’s hometown in Jeonju. If you have no idea where this place is, then you are missing out the most eminent aspect of Jeonju: Jeonju Bibimbap. Bibimbap originates from Jeonju.

My friend and I booked our bus ticket for departure at 8.10am in the morning. This timing is too inhumane. We decided to meet at around 7am at the Express Bus Terminal subway station to have our breakfast together before embarking on our trip. This is clearly an excuse. We settled at this meeting time because we were afraid we’d both wake up late and miss the bus.

At 7am that day, I messaged my friend to tell her I’ve reached! She told me to look for her at a certain exit number and boy, I walked. Have you ever groaned at the thought of the long walk, when changing from purple line to red line at Plaza Singapura MRT station in Singapore? This walk at the Express Bus Terminal subway station is at least 4 times of that distance. I put down my phone and concentrated on walking, for fear I would miss the correct exit. 10min later, my friend sent me a message to ask why I have yet to appear in front of her. The Express Bus Terminal Subway Station is Huge! Gigantic! Humongous! You get the gist? I wasn’t lost, it just took me a long time to walk.

After a 2.5 hours direct bus ride, we arrived at Jeonju! Don’t ask me about the view along the way. I basically concussed 5min after the bus left the berth. I was woken up by my friend telling me we’ve reached, in time to see our bus pass going through the Jeonju entrance gate. Her mother picked us up with a car and off we went to have our Bibimbap! We went to a restaurant named “Gogung” for lunch.

I trusted that my friend brought me to the best store in Jeonju for bibimbap and I was right. I only took a photo of the Bibimbap dish because my friend’s mother was dining together. Having to take pictures of all the food would mean she had to wait for me, and that would be rude. The side dishes and other additional dishes we ordered tasted good. The best is of course the main dish.

Next, my friend brought me to their local supermarket for some fresh strawberries and cherry tomatoes. They were so fresh and sweet, nothing like those we have here in Singapore. Interestingly, the packaging of the strawberries and cherry tomatoes had stickers on it, indicating the names of farmers who grew that particular pack!

After a filling lunch and fruits, we headed to a cafe for some energy replenishment in the afternoon. We went to the Cham in Coffee (참인커피) located in the Jeonju Hanok Village. This cafe is owned by Kim Woobin! He studied in Jeonju when he was younger and his parents are still living in Jeonju. Hence he opened a cafe there.

Kim Woobin at his own cafe.

And I was sitting at the exact same table as him.

Below is a drawing on the wall.

The poster of movie “Friends 2” with Kim Woobin in the middle.

Some decorations and painting in the cafe.

My friend and I chilled over a cup of coffee, overlooking the Jeonju Hanok Village from the second floor. The peaceful afternoon passed by quickly and it was time for me to tour the village myself.

A description of the Jeonju Hanok Village.

Look at how pretty the traditional Korean houses are! There are approximately 700 of these houses located here. To get this awesome full view of the hanok village, climb up the Ohmokdae hill, the highest place in town. It is next to the Jeonju Arts & Craft Exhibition Centre, and it took me around 10 minutes to reach the top.

I took this photo to tell my personal fitness trainer that I was also exercising despite my vacation. Haha!

I have no idea why, but we were tired once again. Perhaps it was the climb up and down the hill, or it was the heat. We once again retreated to a cafe, a different one this time, called Cafe Fermata (카페 페르마타). My friend highly recommended the honey bread and it was splendid. I think I could never eat honey bread from other stores again. Cafe Fermata honey bread has a thin layer of crust on the outside but practically melts in your mouth, as it is soft on the inside. My stomach is growling at this hour looking at this photo again.

We walked around the shopping district and had dinner before going to the bus terminal. My Korean friend is so pretty. Beside her, I pale in comparison.

It was finally back to Seoul for me. This time, on my own. I had a 1 day trip and find myself wishing I had stay longer. If you ever decided to go Jeonju, I would suggest planning at least a 2D1N trip.

Bojeong-dong Café Street

If you’ve been watching Korean drama, the drama “Gentleman’s Dignity (신사의 품격)” is one you shouldn’t miss. It is a light hearted drama that talks about the love life of four men in their forties. Yes, you might think men in forties are old uncles and nothing enticing in the drama. You are wrong. One of the 4 male leads is Jang Dong Gun! CNBlue guitarist, Lee Jonghyun is also one of the fixed cast. Kim Woobin appears once in a while. Even CNBlue leader, Yong Hwa made a special appearance in one of the episodes. So much eye candies to look out for!

When watching the drama, I couldn’t help but notice how beautiful a certain filming site is. The very place where Do Jin and Yi Soo met and had their first interaction. Yi Soo’s skirt was unravelled and Do Jin came to the rescue. It is also the place where Do Jin proposed to Yi Soo in the last episode.

The filming site is called Eco’s Library (에코의 서재), located on the Bojeong-dong Café Street. This cafe is the oldest book cafe on the street, whereas the street is full of cafes, apparels and accessories shops. A good place to sit back and relax, and enjoy a quiet afternoon.

The cafe is filled with books and giving a warm, fuzzy feeling with it’s wooden furniture and high ceiling. (2 above pictures lifted off Korean Tourism Board website)

I went on a weekday afternoon and you can see the street is almost empty. It is really a good place for leisure and chillax.

I went online to search for guides on how to head to this place, and the furthest I came across doesn’t lead to the destination. Most people got lost trying to come to this place because it is quite a walk from the subway station. I relied on Google Map to get me there. Good old reliable Google Map heh~

The subway station itself is outside of Seoul. Prepare ample of time for travelling and I’m sure you’d want to spend some time here, considering the amount of time you travelled just to get to this place. Below, I’ve prepared a guide to the Bojeong-dong Café Street.

How to get to Bojeong-dong Café Street

Take the subway to Jukjeon Station, Seoul Subway Bundang line and take exit 1. You will see Shinsegae Shopping Mall.

Walk past Shinsegae, towards the E-Mart.

See the logo “e”? That’s the E-Mart. We are going to walk to the street behind the E-Mart. So cross the street and walk towards that building.

You can head in here to get some drinks to get you going for the long walk. The gate below is the entrance into the E-Mart.

If not, keep on walking past the entrance, and you will see the road below. Just keep walking straight.

And walk straight further… …

You will need to cross the road and get onto this bridge below.

Get off the bridge and cross the road junction. Continue walking straight.

The plants I saw on the way. I recalled at this point in time, I started wondering if I was lost. The kind where you start to self-doubt because there are no indications at all if you’re in the right direction? I wanted to ask for directions but the streets were almost empty. There were no other options except to trust the Google Map and continue walking straight.

When you see the Kraze Burgers, you’re halfway there. Cross the street and keep walking straight.

You will arrive at a big junction where you can even cross the junction diagonally. You need to get to the side where Caffe Bene is.

Keep walking straight and you will see this Japanese restaurant below. Turn to your right, after this restaurant and you’ll reach the Bojeong-dong Café Street!

The exterior of the Eco’s Library cafe. Look at all the books. Not a word I understand. LOL

Their menu and the waffle I ordered.

Hope this guide helps you find the street safely. Do share with me your experiences on this street too!

The Living Cafe

I visited The Living Cafe some time some time back to try their organic and healthy food. A 2 storey cafe with plenty of tranquility, a good place to sit back and relax with friend on a lazy afternoon, exactly what I was doing.

I have to admit, I was quite skeptical about raw food before I stepped into the store. I mean they are whipping up dishes with no diary, refined sugar or flour. Ingredients are not sautéed, boiled, roasted, flame-broiled, grilled over flaming coals or fried in sizzling-hot oil before serving to us.

I was quite taken for surprise when the food was served eventually. Look at this chicken burger with sweet potato wedges. Are you not salivating already?

The Chef Special Sandwich with Salmon and Pear is simply awesome. The organic pear is so soft that it could practically melt in my mouth. The eggs with fresh salmon and pears emits a fresh taste to the taste buds and so delicious at the same time. 

I am deliberately writing this at 3pm in the afternoon so I don’t feel the hunger pang. Yet I am still craving so bad just by looking at these pictures. I hope you are not reading this in the middle of the night and craving for supper after my post. (Evil Grin)

이젠 아니야

BEAST new MV was released by Cube Entertainment around 3 hours ago. If you haven’t heard, play the MV below NOW! The lyrics is so heart wrenching sobs… … I hope it touches you too!

The MV male lead is none other than Yong Junhyung. The female lead is an actress, Lee Yubi.

BEAST 비스트 – No More 이젠 아니야

[DJ] Why are you still
Unable to forget me like a fool
Like that
Why am I still
A good person to you
A good person
It’s already been
A few months since we broke up
Why are you still
Living in the past memories

[KK] There are lots of good people around you
It’s okay to start a new love
I sincerely hope
You will smile and be happy

[HS] I can see that you’re struggling
I can’t start a new love
Oh yeah
Again at this late time

[DW] Why did you come find me again
I’m the pathetic one who sent you away
The sad cries I hear
Beyond the door

[YS] Why did you come find me again
To me who has already become cold
I don’t have anymore heat That I can share with you

[DW] No more no more
The person whom you can lean on

[JH] Alright cry all you want
If you can wash me away with that
If you can erase the lingering feelings in your heart
I’m not someone
Who is worth being hurt over
I’m not someone who is with you
Like before
I don’t want to lie
Saying that I’m sending you off because I love you
I’ll be with you just for today
Hurry up and get up
I can extend my hand to you
But that is only until today

[KK] You know I can’t go back
You can be happy beside me
Go find someone
Who will make you smile

[HS] I can see you struggling
I can’t feel comfortable for a day
Oh yeah
Again at this late time

[DW] Why did you come find me again
I’m the pathetic one who sent you away
The sad cries I hear
Beyond the door

[YS] Why did you come find me again
To me who has already become cold
I don’t have anymore heat
That I can share with you

[KK] Can you stop now
As time goes by
I’m so scared
That you will get hurt
From my cold exterior

[HS] You just need to live on well so that I can see
I’m no longer
Someone you can lean on

[DW] Why did you come find me again
I’m the pathetic one who sent you away
The sad cries I hear
Beyond the door

[YS] Why did you come find me again
To me who has already become cold
I don’t have anymore heat
That I can share with you

[DW] No more no more
The person whom you can lean on

While my friend and I were watching the MV, we couldn’t help noticing how pretty the shops in the MV appear. Hence I started my hunt online for the shops. Fortunately the shops are quite accessible in Seoul!

First off, the first scene that appeared in the MV is a store named 1984.

Yes, this is also the place where Junhyung and Yubi took their selca. This is not only a cafe, but also a museum, book store and editing store, featuring Art, Music, Fashion, Life.

The interior of this store looks awesome and too good to miss. (Pictures Source: In Sunho)

1F, 158-24, Donggyo-dong, Mapo-gu, Seoul, Korea 121-898
Tel: +82 2-325-1984
Opening Hrs: 12pm – 12am

Junhyung was later checking his phone outside this store called Brown Breath, located in Hongdae. A quick search online indicates that they carry their own brands, as well as outside brands such as Happy Socks, Generic Surplus, and Cheap Monday.

Brown Breath
3F, 343-19 Seokyo-dong, Mapo-gu, Seoul, Korea
Opening Hrs: 10am – 7pm (Closed during lunch time: 12pm – 1pm)

This time, Junhyung stopped in front of Cafe N Then with a bunch of flowers in his hand. Out came the flashback of how Yubi used to wait for him outside this cafe. This place is nearer to Hapjeong Subway Station.

Some pictures of the cafe found on Foursquare:

Cafe N Then
Yanghwa-Ro 6-gil 21, Seogyo-dong Mapo-gu, Seoul
Tel: +82 2-325-1718
Opening Hrs: 11:00am – 12:00am

Finally Junhyung and Yubi met behind the restaurant Slunch Factory. This is a vegetarian-friendly restaurant.

This is how the shop front looks like: (Photos Source)

The restaurant interior looks artsy fartsy too, like a warm and cozy cafe.

I’d say the price is quite reasonable too.
Slunch Factory
Address: 336-18 Sangsu-dong, Mapo-gu, Seoul
Tel: 02 6367 9870
Opening Hrs: 12pm – 12am

Sangsu Subway Station, Line 6, Exit 4.
After exiting, turn around and walk slightly uphill. Follow the sidewalk as it curves to the right (don’t turn into the small alleys before that). Walk straight, passing Yiri cafe on the left. Slunch Factory will be further down, on the right. It is around 5-7 minutes walk from the subway station.

Another place that appeared in the MV is called Roh Rang Party and Gallery, which also happens to be a flower cafe. Though they called themselves a cafe, don’t expect a coffee menu to be given to you when you enter the store. Other than selling flowers, they apparently also teach flower arrangements.
Roh Rang Party and Gallery
Tel: +82 70 7788 7555
Opening Hrs: 10am – 8pm (Closed on Sundays)
Address: 1F, 394-25 Dongyang Hangang Trevel, Seokyo-dong, Mapo-gu, Seoul
(Hapjeong Subway Station Exit 5)

I’m not sure if you’ve noticed, all the places are in Mapo-gu. I guess you can make a day trip to visit all the places mentioned above! I definitely want to visit all these places that appeared in the MV!!!

In the meantime, keep looping this awesome song on Youtube!

Birthday 2013

I finally got a new hard disk to back up all my existing photos, thus clearing up RAM for photo editing on my Mac. Yay! I managed to get us cheap Universal Studio tickets for my birthday at $48 each! A pity that we bought it for my birthday and Heechul from Super Junior was in USS the day before. I guess it’s fate that we miss each other?

Anyway a day before my birthday, we were having buffet dinner at Sentosa Mövenpick Hotel. Gunhee (Heechul’s hairstylist) was walking by and smiled at me. I was having a mouthful of food and stunned myself short when he did that. My unglam self argh!

Fast forwarding to my birhday, weather was good on my birthday and I get to eat my churros! Yahoooooo!

We were in time to see Sesame Street and took photo with Cookie Monster! C is for Cookie and Cookie is for me~~~~ (Sings)

And then there’s Puss in Boots and Fairy Godmother!

Fairy Godmother, can you grant me a boyfriend next year?

My company for the day!

Human and Cyclone rides were down for maintenance unfortunately. We left USS quite early and headed over to Le’toile Cafe to chill for the rest of the day. The girls were so sweet to take in song requests and sang for me. We had a good time.

Thank you for spending the day with me girls ♥

First Time Trying Out Jollibee!

I had an enjoyable gathering with my Uni friends last night. I laughed so much that my voice is coarse today and my throat feels like it’s burning. I thought about what we talked last night and I can still find myself grinning sheepishly.

We went Jollibee at Lucky Plaza for dinner. The place is huge but the long queue is horrendous. We queued for more than half an hour before we get to order. Considering it’s a fast food restaurant, the waiting time is way too long.

Usually we secure ourselves seats before we order. At Jollibee, we’re supposed to queue and order food before we locate seats. Hence most of the time, you see people wandering around with trays of food on their hand looking for seats. This system doesn’t really work when we have a group of people. For example, how do you expect 10 people to queue for food together, then find seats for 10 with all the food on hand?

We were persistent in trying out Jollibee though. We studied it as one of the case studies for our final University double credit module thus the significance to us!

The portion is quite small actually. On my good days, I think I can gobble 2 sets by myself. Taste wise, I’d say it’s good! I’ll definitely visit again if I can skip the queue.

We headed over to Paris Baguette for desserts after that.

Look at the pretty cakes! We 4 girls finished everything on our own and the guys didn’t even get a taste of it. Til the last bite, we were still squealing at how good the cakes tasted.

Then it was nonstop picture snaping time! Uh-huh!

That’s right, the 4 of us gobbled up all the cakes. Yums… I want another Strawberry Shortcake please ㅠㅠ

I was listening to these 2 bickering from my left and right all night long. And that includes listening to them repeat conversations again and again. They gave us so much laughter throughout the night. <3

Ending the post with another group picture. Hope we get to meet again!

Random Day, Random Meet Up

Life is slowly going at a comfortable pace that I could get used to. I had some meet ups with people whom I haven’t seen for a long time and missed dearly. It is good to know most of them are doing well and genuinely happy.

I met up with ex-colleague Jessica for a meal a few weeks ago. Out of the Pan was having a 1 for 1 promotion for either waffles or crepes for DBS credit/debit card holders. Jessica was telling me how good it was, so I decided to give it a try.

I’m sorry my photo didn’t do it any justice. It was yums! Due to the promotion, it was like half price. If you haven’t tried it before, this is definitely the time to do so!

It’s been almost a year since I last saw Jessica and we had so much to talk about. I’m glad to know she’s still happily in love. Work may be awful, at least there’s someone to look forward to seeing after work. Sigh~ I wanna be in love too! I should widen my circle of friends! Side track… … …

Anyway, we proceeded on to coffee at Tiong Bahru Bakery. I have been introducing everyone to this place since my first visit last year.

It serves good coffee with pretty latte art. Their bread and cakes are delicious too. We ordered a Chocolate Tart that day and was surprised to find fruits (orange, apricot and fig) in the tart. Most importantly, this place is accessible by train and buses. Very convenient! The coffee and cake here turned out to be more expensive than our dinner at Out of the Pan though. ㅋㅋㅋ

Ending the post with a photo of me and Jessica.

No idea why my dimple on my right cheek looks like dirt on my face. LOL! I’m trying to do away with bangs, so fringe is forever clipped up. The length is just so awkward at the moment. It dosen’t even stay when I clipped them up because they’re too short. Grrr…

Anyway I didn’t bring my camera out that day so my Note took grainy pictures without flash. Thanks for bearing with me peeps.

Letoile Cafe

It has been raining so often recently, almost daily. Miss A visited Singapore for a showcase a few days ago and even Suzy tweeted about the rain. She mentioned “It rains in Singapore.” in the first tweet, and ‘It is raining heavily in Singapore” in the second tweet attached with a picture.

With the heat gone, I do feel my skin complexion turning for the better. No pimples yay! At the same time, all I think about daily is to relax myself in a corner of a cafe, with a good book topped with sweet aroma of coffee. Singapore has so many new cafes popping up and I went to visit a few recently.

Letoile Cafe is indeed a delightful find. There are two levels to this cafe and ample of space. Most importantly, it is not located in a easily accessible location, so less crowd. The exterior design and structure of the cafe is a pretty and unique.

I was sitting in front of this french window overlooking the streets when it started raining. The atmosphere was so cozy and fuzzy that it gave me a vibe of being in Taiwan. There are books at the side if you’re bored and wants a good read. The sofa is so comfortable and perfect for a gossiping or chit chat session with friends over coffee.

And they have latte art! I love drawings on my coffee! Their latte art may not be the most impressive, but I’m impressed already.

If anyone is interested in the price at all, this is for you. I do find the price very reasonable given the atmosphere and taste. They serve all day breakfast too! For e.g Eggs Benedict. Awwww~ I wish I am in the cafe this very moment. This is by far my favourite cafe at the moment!

CSHH and Thieves Market

Singapore is always developing and evolving at such a high speed. There were times when I left Singapore for a 2 weeks vacation, returned surprised that I could hardly recognize some parts of Orchard Road. Old buildings scraped, making way for new buildings and businesses.

We heard Thieves Market at Sungei Road will be closing down soon. This flea market has been around since 1930s and will soon step into history. My friends and I decided to make a trip before it enter past tense phase.

Before we do that, of course we had to fill our stomachs first! It was my first time visiting Chye Seng Huat Hardware (CSHH). If it wasn’t for my friend, I wouldn’t have known such a place existed behind the big metal doors of the building.

Banana Cake tasted not bad, quite fluffy. Of course the quality can’t be compared to those of Paris Baguette.

My almond croissant was a bit too hard for my liking. I couldn’t cut my knife through it without threatening to shake and bring down the entire table. It was impossible to share this piece of croissant with my friends. Ended up I had to pick up the whole piece and bite. I’m not sure if this is the ideal taste they wanted their customers to have.

My friend’s espresso with milk tasted alright. At least better than my daily brew.

My daily brew is by far the most awful coffee I ever had, and I think it is way too overpriced for the quality. I did a search online and it seemed that everyone is complaining it is too sour for anyone’s liking. Okay probably not everyone but there’s a handful! Or maybe I simply don’t know how to appreciate (Shrugs). On a side note, the presentation of the drink is cute!

My friend ordered a ham omelette with mushrooms and it took more than half an hour to arrive. When we enquired why the omelette was taking so long, the staff simply replied “There is a lot of customers.” Seriously?

I’ll be frank here that I don’t think the entire CSHH is so big that we needed to wait more than half an hour for an omelette. How long do you need to whip up an omelette?! In addition, where’s the sympathetic apology we should be hearing due to the long wait? The staff doesn’t even bother to help check our order and expect us to continue waiting endlessly.

Only when we approached the second staff, we got an answer as to why the long wait. The staff had mixed up our orders. There! This is the reasonable explanation! I nearly dropped tears of comfort when I heard the second staff say “sorry” to us.

So no photos taken for the omelette. My friend was too hungry and we were in no mood to take photos anymore.

Both food and drink were acceptable in terms of taste, nothing fantastic. Service was awful. I’m not sure if I wanna give it another chance.

Opening Hours: 7am – 9pm (Monday – Thursday), 9am –  10pm (Friday – Sunday)

After this not-so-fantastic brunch we had, we headed off to Thieves Market under the glaring sun.

As it is a flea market, items were spread out on the floor without price tags. Feel free to look and touch the items. If you are interested, then ask the price. You can also try price slashing with the seller if you think prices are too high.

As you can see there were all kinds of items on sales. Watches, spectacles, soft toys, shoes… etc

The old phones we used to have before all the smart phone devices appeared. So nostalgic!

The kind of phone every household used to have. Now that everyone has at least a mobile phone, my house doesn’t even own house lines anymore.

We used to own one typewriter too! Mistakes were irreversible with typewriters. There used to be “pen erasers” used to “erase” the words we typed wrongly on paper. All the erasers do was to damage the surface of the paper so that words were illegible and we typed new words over it. Awwww~ Good old memories!

This friendly uncle was selling old graduation photographs of kindergarden kids.

My friend took the opportunity to ask more questions. It seemed like none of them was aware when exactly they would be ask to leave. They pass every single day as though it is going to be the last.

Ending the post with my favorite photo of the day.

An advice to the people who intend to visit the Thieves Market, please be careful of your personal belongings.  Do make a trip before this part of Singapore enters into history too!

Paris Baguette Cafe

I must begin my post with a scream! Ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh!!!!!

SMTown tickets are in! Woohooooooooo! Can you sense my exhilaration? I can’t wait for 23 November! (Calms self down)

My friend gave me a birthday treat at Paris Baguette a few days ago. Yes I am still celebrating my birthday after two months. I’m so loved! Kekekeke~

Speaking of Paris Baguette, I’ve been to the one in Korea, but haven’t tried it since it opened in Singapore. Paris Baguette in Korea is really good and cheap! Prices go a little steep in Singapore, but I can tell you it’s every bit worth the price.

For someone who doesn’t take strawberry flavored food, I was skeptical about this cake initially. Since my friend bought this for me, I must give it a try. I was glad I did! The cake is so fluffy and basically melts in your mouth. Most importantly, it doesn’t have the artificial strawberry taste.

And this chocolate danish is yums max too! Not too sweet and the crust is crispy.

I ordered one of their bestsellers off their all-day-breakfast menu. The wedges come with a very special sauce and I can’t really pinpoint the ingredients. I’m guessing they mix tobasco in the sauce. The wedges taste really potato-ish and the bread here is very soft.

My kiwi orange drink tasted perfect. The pulps of the kiwi just comes up whenever I take a sip. It neutralises the drink and it is so refreshing.

I went on a friday afternoon and the queue at the counter never stopped while I was there. I’m glad their business is surviving well. I must make another trip soon to try their croissant. I heard it’s even better than Tiong Bahru Bakery!
