[Travelling] 1st to 5th August

1st August: Lotte World
My I-have-no-idea-how-many-time at an amusement park le (: This time is Lotte World for the 3rd time!

Flume ride >> Sinbad adventures >> Pharoah’s Fury >> Comet Express >> Atlantis Adventure >> Hot air balloon

Though I was fine the waiting time for the rides as I already expected it from a Korea amusement park, this is really the longest I have to wait for rides >.< At least I got to take 6 rides… not bad ~~

2nd August: Myeongdong

As usual we change our plans around, the rest wasn’t interested in going to Entertainment hopping and I have been there before.  So we decided to go to Myeongdong as we needed to change money and  there is sales too ((:

The rest left for Dongdaemun while Fang and I went to Shinsaegae at Myeongdong. Shinsaegae really reminds me of Singapore! 7 more days ~~~~ I even found Dean & Deluca <3<3<3 Bread for dinner once again ^^ & cakes for desert ^^

3rd August: Tongin Market & Gangnam Underground Shopping

We started the day with a meal at Tongin Market. My 3rd and final time there le >.< I will miss there a lot. We should totally have it in Singapore. It will definitely fly. Singapore got enough food for people to choice from. We find that it is a good way for people to try and error to see if they like the food and will eat it in the future. Maybe I should set up a stall in SG 😛

After that we headed to Gangnam Underground  Shopping, since none of us have ever been there throughout our entire exchange haha! Okie lah ~ got some stuff are cheaper, but the designs there are mostly white or monotone… after a few turns, it really seem the same. But I did find nice earings((: clip on earings, first time for me!

4th August: Brunch @ HUFS & Seoul Library

We went back to Hankuk University for our last brunch in South Korea. Super nice Murmur Special Brunch! After that I headed to Seoul Metropolitan Library at City Hall. As the library was not fully opened, I took pictures and went to the building around the library. Mostly office and some ambassies, but haven found Singapore’s one yet.

5th August: Insadong, Bukchon Hanok Village & Chicago Musical

We got to eat the Famous Ginseng Chicken near Gyeongbokgung, but I have no idea what the name of the shop is. && I got to meet Zhao Qi!!! Haha. How big is Seoul man?!?!? Man ~~ envy her, she went on many many trips this summer that she had 5 wardrobe makeovers 😛

We finished the Ginseng Chicken, like the whole bowl, even the soup! The restaurant is really big and can cater to a whole lot of ppl.

After that we tried to walked to Insadong, but lost our way and make one whole round around Gwanghwamun Square. Bukchon Hanok village is just a small area, smaller than Jeonju. I still like Jeonju more as they separate the commercial and private area more distinctly, while Bukchon kind of have the commercial shops very near the private residences. Andong was a complete different experience as it was not commercialized at all.

“My family house is here!!!” hahahahahahaha (:

The private residences in Bukchon must be very expensive as it is so well-kept and yet have modern aspects to the house.

Went to Insadong to shop for some more stuff for souvenirs. Then we went to O’sulloc cafe and rest for the afternoon. After that Zhuwei and I headed to D Cube Arts Center for Chicago musical. By the time we got to D Cube, we got a shock when we took the lift as there was no button. Then we found the machine outside and we were in awe. Hahaha!

It was a nice  way to end my musical experience in Korea. A Jazz Musical!!! The stage is also different as it was a Jazz band  and they took the whole rear of the stage. Though the musical is in Korean, I surprisingly understand what was going on. This just proves that my body language skills are not that bad 😛 (self-praise! haha!)
