JYJOONYOO IN KOREA - Day 0-1 Amazing Busan!

Hello everyone! I am back in Malaysia and finally have some time to start my blog posts about my days in Korea. I went to Korea for 12 days last December and had lotsa fun exploring the Kimchi Nation. I love it so much and is sure that I will be back soon. SOON. Like this year! YAYYYY

I still remember back in last year when I just booked my flight ticket and words can't express the excitement I had! Now that I'm back it seems like I had just woke up from the sweetest dream in my life! It's as if I've not been there because it felt like a dream! So I decided to pack my bags and go again this December! (Yup I've booked my tickets!) :DDDDD


I will post everything I did from day 1 to day 12 and will make another more compact itenerary version with all the directions that I can give for you guys because places I went can actually be covered in 7-8 days. I will most probably make that version downloadable for you guys to print out and bring it around.

Day 0-1
Went to the airport at 10pm to catch my 1am flight to Busan, South Korea
AirasiaX! 
The flight was quite comfortable in my opinion, and I got mistaken by the air-stewardess for a Korean. Actually throughout my whole trip I got mistaken quite a few times as a Korean as they told me I looked like one! So happy HAHAHA #syoksendiri #buyaolian

Bye KL!

KOREA ANNYEONGHASEYO!
Arrived in Gimhae International Airport about 8am in the morning. 

Bought a kimbab and banana milk at a convenience store for breakfast. 

Kimbab is so cheap in Korea! 

Airport Fashion.
LOL

Random shot

Took airport limousine to my residence in Haeundae area.

I rented a whole studio apartment for myself with beach view for only a very cheap price!

Two comfy beds for me, myself and I! :D

Checked into the residence and left for exploration of Busan!





Random plant


First street food was Ddeokbokki! So nice!

They have a lock&lock store! Aunties pack your bags now!

Nampodong shopping area
High quality products for reasonable amount of money!


Life sized Kpop stars' posters (or what I should call it) are everywhere!


All their apparels are damn fashionable!!!
Although not as cheap as places like Thailand and Taiwan but definitely of higher quality and more trendy!


Bought a nice shoe here :D
LOOK! 


Now its G Dragon.


Interesting roadside stalls which I didn't get to try because I was too full from the Ddeokbokki and was about to have dinner. D;

But did try out this chicken which looks so tempting and it tasted SO NICE!!!


LOL PAISEH

Grilled Octopus which wasn't very fresh I think...
The flesh was mushy...

Went on to explore Jalgachi Fish Market which was mind blowing!
So much seafood in terms of variety and amount!
So many which I have never seen or heard of in my life!
As a seafood lover, I am so tempted to try everything!


Clams which are palm sized big!

Oysters OMG!
If make into Oyster Omelette...
DROOLS!

More seafood!

These are stingrays right??

Ajjumma handling dried fish.

Preserved crabs! The red one tasted quite alright but they were raw! :0

Seaweed!!!
Who needs weed when there's seaweed!

Anchovies! The variety is astonishing!

Such huge squids!

Look at the squids! 


Now the indoor part, which you can purchase seafood and have it cooked at the above level.


Dining tables with view of the sea.

My dinner. KRW40000 (RM120)
Left: Oysters, Sea cucumber, Octopus, Abalone, Scallops
Right: Korean raw fish 

Practically nothing is cooked! Loved it! Gonna come back here soon or after!

Went back after dinner.
Korea is pretty much dominated with stairs so make sure you have the energy to walk~

It's also pretty much packed with full length mirrors for the vain in you.

And lockers for storage of your bulky items if you wanna explore the area without having to carry your stuff around. I left my shopping items here before going to the wet market for dinner.

The view from my studio apartment.

Decided to walk down for some exploration.

Pojang Macha aka Cart Bars which serves seafood and beer for people to chat and socialise or just to have some seafood in the middle of the night!

This is how it looked like inside.

I ordered a half oyster half scallop set which cost about KRW20000+3000 for the beer. (RM70)
Quite expensive compared to the wet market but hey so late already where to find seafood?


The kind Ajjumma (aunty) gave me so many extra scallops and side dishes because she said it's my first time trying out cart bar. We talked abit using my bad Korean language as she doesn't understand English at all. She asked where am I from, whether Malaysia is hot or cold, am I a student or traveller and some other questions. Quite touched by her gift of extra scallops and oyster.
Went back to my residence at about 12am.

Ending this post with a random nightshot on the streets!

Off to Seoul in day2. Check back soon!
