JYJOONYOO IN KOREA - Day5 Beautiful Korea

Woke up in the morning and left for those touristy stuff today! Do expect beautiful photos taken by yours truly. I purposely changed by bag to a larger one to fit in my tripod because I wanna take nice pictures and most passerby just anyhow take for you one, so I rather set up my camera on timer mode and take them myself. However I did received help from a few passerbys which took very good pictures for me! Tip: Always find those tourists with DSLR and chances are they will take nicer photos than normal people. :D

Had this sausage bread for breakfast and I think it was around 3500won. 
The tomato sauce, I mean, tomato paste is delicious! Normally bakeries use those cheap tomato sauces but this is different! They use legit tomato paste! And the sausage is delicious too, yup its a sausage, not a hotdog, so its definitely worth the price! I have it almost every morning as my breakfast! And a few cream puffs from the bakery everytime I pass by them. They are so nice I will buy them everytime I see them! :D

For those who don't know the difference between sausage and hotdog, sausage is the one using more premium quality ingredients like minced meat and herbs stuffed into casings such as intestines; and hotdogs are usually processed animal parts (not only the meat) and flour and many other additives and flavourings.

Took the subway to Gyeongbokgung 

This is actually a frozen lake beside Gyeongbokgung

This is probably my favourite photo taken in Korea. I know I'm very thick faced to say it, but I think I look great here! Hahaha! Everyone who saw it also thought so! Some even thought it wasn't me or something, and the point is, minimal editing is done to this photo! I liked it so much I printed it and framed it on my wall together with other nice pictures of Korea. HAHAHA

Contrast: One side looks sad while other looks vibrant.

Took the "lift" up to namsan!


View from cable car up to Namsan Tower.


Spotted Malay words here in Korea! Went back in 2014 and still found it!

Dinner: The Best Burger In Seoul

Verdict: Not very nice, just a normal beef burger with cheese. Maybe I had too much good burgers back in Malaysia! Hahaha

There's this event being held there where couples will go to the centre of the place to have a kiss. Namsan itself is a very romantic place with couples walking around and lovey dovey can be witnessed everywhere. How lonely I felt that night... :(

Got back to Myeongdong to catch the subway back to residence and before catching the subway, I shall catch a chicken kochi first! :P

Went to a mini mart nearby and bought random stuff for supper as burger dinner wasn't enough!

Saw this Korean Silkworm Pupa (Beondegi) CANNED WTS OMG!
They even have this shit canned!!! OMG 
And.. Yea.. I bought it. HAHAHA
Just to try la but after the first piece I threw the whole can away already. I admit I am already quite adventurous when it comes to food and I can accept a large profile of flavours, but beondegi? 
Thanks, but no thanks. :X

Korean strawberries are SO SO SO SWEET! Forget other countries'

And.. Post Supper. Hahaha! Supper already still got post supper!
I really think the burger wasn't enough so thru the help of goshitel staff, I ordered Jajjangmyun!
LOVE THEM! This was sooooo good! I craved for it for ONE WHOLE YEAR until I could finally get to eat it during my second trip in Korea hahaha.

Ending this day's post with this mixed Jajjangmyun.

JYJOONYOO IN KOREA - Day4 Shopping Heaven

Woke up at like 5am in the morning and quickly washed up and prepared to go out to board the earliest train possible. Arrived at the place around 7am and there were so many fans waiting already! Like 200!
And I realised on the train that T-ARA will not be recording this time because I saw hyomin's instagram and they are in Beijing during that time! WTH! ARGH

Exo fans had the longest queue. It was snowing quite heavily and they were sitting on the floor covered in snow! I stand there also WTFICANNOTTAHAN already. How they bear through this cold?!

So we went over to queue for the live broadcast and were told only the first 20 or 40 will get into the studio. My number was 80. -_-
But we decided to wait for a while more until 8am and see whether by any slight chance we get to go inside or not. But no. T.T 
So I went back and continued sleeping. HAHAHA
You know it's so comfortable to sleep in the winter! So lazy to wake up man! XD
Woke up around 1pm and headed out to Myeongdong for shopping time!


Exo again...


Went to SPAO, SM endorsed clothing brand. Not sure whether it's owned by SM though.

Was searching desperately for strawberries since day 1 but still haven't bought any. The craving need to stop so when I saw this shop selling juice, I asked whether I could just buy the strawberries and they said yes! And they look happy filling up my cup full with strawberries. Guess they were happy because they didn't need to do extra work juicing the strawberries and I was happy cos I finally got my strawberries! 

Wanted to try Korean Fried Chicken but had no idea where to eat it. Finally found a shop in the middle of Myeongdong. It was horrible :(
Chicken was so dry, and this is the minimum portion that was available. I didn't even finish alot of them because they were so not delicious...

Secret to many Korean guy's tall bodies?
TADA! Insoles! Hahahaha
Shall not comment further~ XP

Bought a pack of grilled octopus, was so good!!!! But Malaysia also got similar laaa

Lol Gangnam style

And.... Samgyetang! (Korean ginseng chicken)
Was quite tasteless to me because I couldn't taste the chicken taste, and maybe I was gradually falling sick again since day3 :(

Wishbone ahh hahaha

After Myeongdong, went to Dongdaemun for more shopping! Dongdaemun is famously known for its shopping and wholesale centres. Sadly this time I didn't know where they were and ended up just shopping in 2 Malls. They are actually just across the road! 

Cheongyecheon Stream

Just look at how gorgeous the clothings are!!!
And most importantly, they are Made In Korea! Means most are in very good quality!

Accessories which makes me don't even wanna go in because I think I will faint from all the bling bling! 

This place is the place that you will feel the other side of Korea. The place that will spill the black ink on your good impressions towards Korea and their people. People here are so pushy to make a sale to you that once you enter the floor, they will literally walk up to you and invite you to their stall and make you take a look at their clothes. If you looked and refuse to buy, they will keep pestering you non-stop and will even make unpleasant sounds when you finally walk away.
This is a place that you might want to beware of.

Saw a strawberry shop at dongdaemun. Bought a box and went back to my residence at Seocho.
Was so excited to eat them because I know Korean strawberries are delicious but didn't see any until this day!


TAAADAAAA!!! I finished the top row in less than 2 minutes!!!!!

That's all for day 4!
Day 5 will be up very soon so do come back!
