I wasn’t intending to go to Seoul this June holidays but my mum surprised me when she asked me to tag along on her work trip, thus I hustled Joy to come along. Being both BIG BANG fanatics, we kinda have a slight obsession with Korea. Think the crazy daydreaming has heightened to a new state of insanity after the trip.. as I seem slightly over the edge with my fantasy with Big Bang. I kinda love Exo now, ps Kai please be mine.
Arriving at 5pm korean time, it was pretty impossible to do anything so Joy and I ordered room service and wandered around Myeongdong at night. We both stayed at Lotte Hotel right next to the famous Myeongdong district, where cosmetics shops line every alley and go on for ages, similarly to staring at the horizon just that the sun is now switched with Lee Min Ho, GD, and other hot boy’s faces.
The entire trip was just Joy and I since my mum was busy working, still undecided if it was a blessing or a curse. 12am hunger pangs were satisfied with kimchi rice in seaweed wrapping ~yummy~
Day 2, was spent wondering around Gangnam, it was a long unnecessary train ride to the city about 40min… to be let down by the boring shopping experience in the main district of Gangnam. A friend then recommended to head to Sinsa to locate the store Low Classic. As lamely put, it was like the Haji lane of Korea just super sized. Ok, maybe more Tiong Bahru… With more apparel boutiques. I actually I really like Sinsa for the quaint cafes lying around every corner. This country is crazy for caffeine, a common sight which occurs at 10pm is a local sipping on coffee. Another plus point about Sinsa, is the cute boys. Not forgetting to mention, CUTE BOYS WHO MAKE COFFEE!!! ❤ So if u are a girl, please come here. You won’t regret it.
