• 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…

  • Seoul Chillax

    After the hectic concert days, it was finally down to our own itinerary for the rest of the trip. I got to meet a new Japanese friend with my travel mate and we hanged out together the entire day. We started off the day with an early lunch at 별다방미스리 (Miss Lee Cafe) in Myeongdong. Does the restaurant name ring a bell to you? This is the restaurant where YongSeo couple (Yonghwa from CNBlue and Seohyun from Girls Generation) visited in We Got Married Season 2. They visited the store in Insadong, but this outlet in Myeongdong is more convenient in my opinion. We had the entire second floor to…

  • Super Show 6 Encore

    The second day started off with sundae soup at 마포소문난족발순대국, near our guesthouse. I’d lose my voice if I consume spicy food in the morning, so I ordered a non-spicy one. Surprisingly, the non-spicy sundae soup also tasted awesome! I guess we came to the right store. This place seems famous with the pictures of broadcasting stations hanging on the wall. The photo below isn’t blur, by the way. The steam from the pipping hot sundae soup blurs out the ingredients. The sliced meat pieces were soft and chewy. The glutinous rice steamed to perfection. I couldn’t get enough of the tasty soup. With our bellies filled to the brim, we…

  • Continuing… July is Seoul Wonderful

    The first day in Korea was indeed a busy day. Meeting with different people to pick up and exchange tickets for our Super Junior 6 Encore Concert. We headed on to Chocolat BonBon, opened by Super Junior member Eunhyuk. A small and cozy cafe. Eunhyuk’s mum was there as a cashier when I visited. Glad to see customers other than fangirls visiting the cafe. It’s a sign that cafe is well accepted by public, isn’t it? We stayed for a while before hopping on a cab to the MOM House, a guesthouse in Myeongdong, opened by another Super Junior member Kyuhyun. The cab ride was so comfortable that I fell asleep…

  • July is Seoul Wonderful

    As I was sharing on my last post, I made an unplanned trip to Seoul last month. It was a short trip as compared to my previous trips, where I usually spend at least 10 days per trip. For this trip, I want the strain on my wallet to be at it’s minimum because there are other plans this year (for sharing another time ^^). My second time travelling on Asiana Airlines and still as satisfied with their service. Luggage weight capacity is slightly lesser compared to Singapore Airlines of 30kg, but 20kg is sufficient for me this time. The Singapore Changi Airport ground staff did share with us over the counter that we could…

  • Prelude…

    It’s been a very busy but rewarding month for me. An unplanned trip to Seoul and back. I can’t get enough of Korea and I am still in heavy withdrawals from the trip. The trip was so wonderful that I told myself “I am ready to die without regrets now.” A figure of speech because I’m greedy and I want more from deep within. But it goes to show how satisfied I am! I want to share about my trip so much but I haven’t had time to do this. Give me some time to organise my thoughts and photos. I’ll be back soon!  

  • Let’s Eat 2: Strawberry Feast

    TvN drama has been attaining more and more attention recently on their drama. One in particular that I got hooked on was “Let’s Eat (식샤를 합시다)”. It is about the lives of four single people hungry for food and love. From the drama title, you can probably guess that the drama focuses a lot on food. Due to the love from audience, there was season 2 “Let’s Eat 2  (식샤를 합시다 2)” filmed and the broadcast just recently ended, sadly. On one hand, I’m glad I no longer have cravings after every broadcasted episode, and in turn gain weight from this. The food looks so delicious and tasty in the drama…

  • Perfect Way to Complete the Trip

    This is the finally the last post on my Korea trip in April. Hahahahahaha~ I was just talking to my friend the other day about how awesome this shop is. Mukshidonna (먹쉬돈나) has a lot of outlets all over Korea. The last time I looked, they were opening an outlet on Garosu-gil too.  Their ddeokbokki is cheap and delicious. The first time I brought a female friend to eat for her first time, we ate 4pax portion and paid less than SGD$20 each! What makes it so special is that you get to choose what to add to your wok! Eggs, fishcake, cheese, dumpling, different kinds of noodles… etc. In…
