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.20150714_1159261If you haven’t tried (gasp at you) and is interested to try it out, the outlet we visited is in Gangnam.

A selca while waiting for my friends who were combing through the store. 20150714_1312401
We finally arrived at Lotte World. My first trip to this indoor amusement park! If you ask me, the rides are not as exciting as the Everland. After all, there’s T-Express at Everland, that can beat all the amusement rides in Lotte World. Of course, we still had fun!20150714_1537461The outdoor portion of the amusement park. We queued and waited for the rides, but the wait was simply too long and too humid for us waiting under the sun. We settled for less exciting rides in the end because they had shorter queues. I’ve been to Korea in June before and I must say, the sun in July is much more glaring compared to June. I shudder at the thought of August…20150714_1721061Dinner was at 달으로家. This is the same place where Super Junior members have been eating since trainee days. This restaurant was also featured in the Super Junior M Guesthouse variety show.20150714_2032201 달으로家
