Weiqi, Wei Fang and I decided to take a trip to Ulsan on 25th April to visit Weiqi’s Idol, Whales (: We went to Nopo bus terminal, instead of Sasang, as it is nearer and there is more frequent buses. Apparently we were the only persons on board the bus as the bus were very frequent, every 10 mins.
After a one hour bus trip & reading my Macbeth, we took a cab to Jangseungpo Whale Museum. Honestly it seemed weird for the port to be the Whale watching area, as it seem to be like Jurong Island >.< haha ~~
We even caught a 4D movie at the Whale museum, so cool ~~ of course we will always have time for selcas ((:
Migration trends for the various kinds of whales across the world (:
OMG this is really bad!! They cut whales and eat them >.< I really don;t understand. Also, the restaurants opposite the museum is all serving whale meats T.T We persevered and managed to find a restaurant that has other relatively normal food >.<
Of course they can’t keep a whale in the museum, so the next best thing is dolphin. Well they kind of put whale and dolphin as the same types of animals, though to me it is different. Before the dolphin show, we went to visit the dolphins and they also did a mini performance for us ^^
They even have IDs for the four dolphins! so cool ~~
I am an angel ❤ ❤ ❤
After we finish visiting the whale museum, we took a cab to Ulsan Grand Park. We were looking at the sign and realise that we were only at the East gate. I really wonder how big is “Grand”, haha (:
We left shortly as we notice too many bees and sand flies that we only walked about … i think … 500 m to the playground and took a lot of scenic photos (:
After that we wanted to take a cab to the bus terminal, but the cabbie told us that we could walked to the place. So we followed her directions but found that it seems to be the opposite direction from where the bus was driving towards Ulsan bus terminal. We asked a few people along the way and they kept guiding us to the bus stop which was weird. Then Weiqi noticed the Intercity bus notice, which has Busan on it. Shortly the bus came and apparently it was correct 😛 haha this is a first (:
On Saturday, we went to Shinsaegae Centrum City, the 2nd Largest Shopping Mall in the World. It was even recorded in the Guinness Book of Records, before the current largest shopping mall was built in Dubai. But it just looks like any other shopping mall to me, I guess Singapore has too many shopping malls le 😛 At least now we see a lot of familiar brands, and I did shop a bit at H&M (:
The B1 food area really reminds me of Takashimaya. For a moment I thought I was back in Singapore 😛
We took the lift to the top floor and found “Zooraji”! Hence we concluded that every mall has a zoo or garden or zoo/garden 😛
We even found a MINI GARDENS BY THE BAY ~~~ can you believe it ?!?
We finally went to eat Chinese food at PNU. This is supposed to be beef noodles, so we were expecting black fried kway teow… but we got fried noodles that taste like fried hokkien noddles. But better than nothing (:
On Sunday 27th April, I finally got to watch my first baseball match (: #happygirl92
Today’s match is Lotte Giants (Busan) [Home] vs SK Wyverns (Incheon) [Away] at Sajik Baseball stadium.
Mid way through the game, they distributed lotte plastic bags to home team spectators. There is two types, one is the blown up bag and tie around the head (Weifang – 2nd photo below) and the other is the ribbon that Weiqi and I were wearing.
There was this ahjussi who sat behind us and tapped our chair. It shocked me. He said some words in Korean and I roughly understand that he wanted to me to make the ribbon head wear for his grandchild. Scare me 😛 haha!
Okie you might be wondering why I am wearing specs when I don’t look photogenic in it 😛 I can’t see the match properly 😛 haha We weren’t sitting that close but it was considerably good (:
LOL!!! we were shocked when a car drove it, then we realised that it was to drove the pitcher in the change.
After watching a few matches on tv and on 27th, I realised that home team tends to win the match but not always 😛 Lotte Giants won 3 to 1 ^^
Now I want to watch another baseball match haha (:
