• 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!  

  • 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…

  • Hong Kong and Macau: Super Show 6

    When I thought I would missed Super Junior’s Super Show 6 concert because their tour was almost coming to an end and there seemed to be no news of anyone bringing the show to Singapore, I made a decision to fly to Macau to attend the concert. I have started attending Super Show since their third tour, Super Show 3, and I didn’t want to miss out on Super Show 6, with or without my bias. Their concert was on a Sunday, but my friend could only embark on the trip on Sunday itself. Hence my plan was to head over to Hong Kong to play for a day, then…

  • In Seoul, Every Day is a Happy Day

    After EXO went to this restaurant called “School Food” in the variety “EXO Showtime”, I too tried it with some friends in Apgujeong. Surprisingly, the dishes taste good! Ever since, I’ve been to the restaurant multiple times. It’s a good venue to meet for meals since it’s at the entrance of Garosu-gil, coming from the subway station. Speaking of EXO, have you watched their new web drama called “EXO Next Door”? There’s English subtitles to the video from their official YouTube channel. It’s funny and there’s my ever-so-adorable Kyungsoo! Here’s episode 1. Oh, I got distracted. (Coughs) It doesn’t matter how much food I consume. I climb stairs like below…

  • April Korea Trip Continues… …

    I recalled my trip to Korea last year April was actually the first time I went to Mouse Rabbit, the cafe opened by Super Junior member, Yesung. That’s right, my bias. Everyone has been raving about the cafe because Yesung was there most of the time, and the awesome fan service he gave by taking your orders over the counter. You get to talk to him and shake his hand even. Talk about up close and personal interaction! There at the nearest subway station, Konkuk University subway station, there was a banner congratulating another Super Junior member, Hyukjae’s birthday. Coincidentally it was his birthday month. Putting up advertisements in subway…

  • Onward to China

    Vacation has always been a form of escapade for myself. Ditching whatever I hold on my hands and take off in an air jet, travelling above 40,000ft in the air, barely containing myself in the seat for the unknown that is awaiting me. Whenever I return from a trip, I am reluctant to unpack my luggage. Removing every piece of item from my luggage is a road of reminiscing, revisiting every moment of my trip. Seeing my unpack luggage lying there out in the open is like a reminder that my trip was just over, and I still have ample of energy stored up within me, to prepare myself for…

  • 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…

  • 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…

  • O Cherry Blossoms, Where Art Thou

    I was super exhilarated about my April Korea trip because it was finally a 3 weeks long break away from work, and best of all, my trip was right amidst the blooming period of beautiful cherry blossoms.Our arrival time in Incheon Airport was at 9.50pm, so we only expected to reach Seoul at around 12am after the immigrations clearance and luggage collection. As expected, the streets of Hongdae was quiet and empty when we finished our dosage of cider and fried chicken.The day ended with me breathing the air in Seoul, smiling to myself as I head to bed. Breakfast was bibim naengmyeon at a random shop outside Ewha Subway…
