Adeline's odyssey through South Korea

1 April 2015

I'm coming home. ~ End of 8 days 7 nights grad trip. 😌
DAY 7!!!!!!!!!! ;D Yay we made a trip to Bau Dog Cafe!!! 😊😊😊😊 Hehehe it's my first time getting into a dog cafe and omg I was overwhelmed by the dogs. There were huge ones and small ones but all were so hyped up and they were just barking so loudly the moment we came in. I was stunned for a moment because I totally didn't expect this scene. πŸ˜… Initially I was scared to enter the area of the big dogs but eventually I just overcome my fear. The dogs are all so adorable and i just had such a good time there. ☺️ (though most of the time I go to find the dog instead of it coming to me πŸ˜‚) #ohwell #itsokay great day with dogs for two hours. βœŒοΈβœ…πŸΆ
Ended off the last night with supper. CHICKEN AND BEER. GODLIKE. πŸ˜πŸ‘

When night falls, we decided to take a visit to the famous stream in the CBD area. Heh it really looks like the ones in kdramas and we also crossed the stone bridge too! :-) Totally brings back memories of the times when our Korean buddies and us crossed the love bridge somewhere along a stream in Suncheon. 😌 #memories #reminiscence #missmykoreanbuddy #itsbeen5years
PRINCESS & COMMONER FIGHT IN THE PALACE. πŸ’ƒπŸ˜› #supposedtotiehairforhanbok #ididntknow #sigh
Day 6: Visit to Gyeongbokgung Palace!! :D Hahaha finally able to witness the Guards Exchange Ceremony when we reached the palace. Tbh, it reminds me of the Forbidden Kingdom in Beijing. 😊 I always wonder how life was like in the past when the King ruled the Country. It's amazing to relook into the history of a wonderful country like South Korea. πŸ‡°πŸ‡· But we ended up camwhoring instead of admiring the palace heh. πŸ˜‰ After that we headed off for Ginseng Chicken Lunch! Yay it was real good I mean it's been five years since I last had this. And yes it was so good for the body that my 倧姨妈 decided to visit me immediately after that. πŸ˜‚

Day 5: Morning hike up Nansam Park! πŸ˜‰ Didn't regret walking a great deal through the mural village and taking many photos of the graffiti on the walls of people's homes. It's so pretty and artistic and even though I'm not a artsy kind of person, I really liked those drawings and paintings a lot. ☺️ There were many wall murals that you could pose and take photos with and it's all #instagramworthy 😁

Next stop we went to Gangnam area!!! Heheheh surprisingly we saw a LINE cafe!! 😍 Yay it's like happiness overwhelm because the store is so huge and there's even a cafe at the basement level!! ;-) Yes finally got to try the macaroons too. 😊😊😊 #socuteicannot #lineisawwsome
Finally visited NORYANGJIN FISHERIES WHOLESALE MARKET. 😁 Hahaha I was amazed to see such a huge market selling all the fresh seafood and omg they are all literally still moving. πŸ˜‚ #socool
[Cont.] But it was so good the beef!!! 😍😍😍 Love it so muchie hehehehe. Anyways our last destination of the day was no doubt the N Seoul Tower ✌️ YAYZZZZZ. finally I managed to visit the place where it's always appearing in Korean dramas like BOF. 😁 Heheh it's like my bucketlist to visit this attraction where all the love locks are placed too. Well if in future I have a bf, maybe I may consider coming to Seoul heheh. πŸ˜‰ It was a pretty good day today though towards the end, my mood was kinda affected in a not so good way. But oh well, Adeline lets not think too much into it. It's your grad trip. Just have fun. 😊 #daythreeisdown
[Cont] So yeap, hopefully I will be able to a lipstick I really love and look good in it. Perhaps something nude or light pink. 😊 Yeah and yes now not forgetting our heavy hearty lunch, it's like so FILLING BUT GOOD. It's like I don't really like dumplings but this is good. πŸ˜„ Esp the noodles though. It was such a huge portion I just couldn't finish it all! πŸ˜‚ #feelbadforwastingfood Anyway continue to our shopping and yeah was tgt with Nicole and Jacob, I guess I can pretty much keep up to their speed. πŸ˜… Ended up getting lost and all but it was fun though to immerse into the local culture. We get to see the local street stalls on the roads and the patrons were mainly the Koreans. Wow I mean there were so many road intersections we even had to scissors paper stone to decide on which route to take. πŸ˜‚ And time passed really quick today as we all finally met up for dinner at a Korean BBQ restaurant. Tbh, the food portion was a tinge little because I expected more. πŸ˜…

βœ… Exploration in Myeongdong. Started off with yummy breakfast in the morning = Bacon toast with hot chocolate ☺️ After that we headed to our shopping district. Tbh, first time in my life I see a whole street of cosmetic shops and the staff were all out giving freebies trying to get us to patronize their stores. Wow it's like legit marketing going on there and due to enticement of the freebies, I gave in and went to most of the shops. πŸ˜„ But yeah love the cosmetics in Korea, esp the masks. 😍 Been eyeing for masks for super duper long ever since I was in Phuket!! I guess it's good to pamper yourself and take good care of your face!! ^^ Well I didn't really get much makeup stuff because I still had some back at home. Hmm maybe a new glossy lipstick? ;) Hehehe been putting on lipstick ever since I came back from internship. It's like it makes my lips look so much better since it's tend to look kinda dull in colour in nature.
βœ… Mandatory group photo before heading off to explore the theme park and play all the rides!!! 😍😁🎒🎑🎠 #seoullongbitches Been so long since I felt that thrill of going on exciting rollar coaster rides. Esp the T-Express. No words can describe the ride. Exhilarating? 😌 The wind was so cold and it was literally pushing my head back and all and combined with the incredible speed of the carriage, wow I can just say i really enjoyed the ride!! ☺️ And of course not forgetting the safari! It's so nice to see animals within a theme park. πŸ˜‰πŸ―πŸ»πŸ΅ If only Singapore could have such a theme park, but oh well USS is good enough though. And thinking about it, can't wait to start work there! πŸ˜„ Until then, goodnight! πŸ’‹

Day 2: Everland 🎒🎑🎠 Yay it's finally the day that we head to the amusement park. 😁 Feeling all so eggcited because I heard it's gonna be real fun there!! ;) It's been some time since I last went to a theme park and thinking about all the rollar coaster rides just gets me so pumped up right now. So yeap we're currently on the subway heading to our destination. Hope today will be a good day! πŸ˜‰πŸ’ƒ #seoullongbitches #letsconquereverland P/s The morning weather is so cold. BrrrπŸ™Ž

25 March 2015

Day 1: Exploring around Hongdae βœ… Yes I'm finally back in our room, omg feels so warm in here as compared to outside where we were all freezing because it was freaking 3 degrees Celsius!! πŸ˜… Totally underestimated the weather here, thought that the winter jacket I lent could save me. It did but I was still braving against the cold. πŸ˜₯ But overall, thank god for the hot pipping army stew we had for dinner!! ^^ Hehehe felt so good to eat something hot on a cold night. ☺️ After that we went to shopped around the area, well I have to say there were really many nice clothes stalls selling pretty clothes. Hehehe but it's a tinge expensive and so I ended up buying none. Well that's not the case for food though. πŸ˜‰ Ate churros with ice cream and drank hot cup of cafe mocha. #daebak And it's time to sleep now. Tomorrow's gonna be a long day at everland!! 😌 #dayoneisover
Checked into Boa Guest House!! ^^ Hehehe the room is small but feels so cosy. ☺️ Esp the little corner where my bed is, heh I'm gonna be sleeping here for the next seven nights! 😌 Already started camwhoring and all hahaha just so eggcited for dinner later!! I'm like craving for some hot army stew right now. πŸ˜‰ #hunger
Drinking our Barcadi with Sprite and enjoying the good view! 😍 #lovetravelling
KOREA HERE WE COMEEE!!! πŸ˜πŸ‡°πŸ‡· Finally on board SQ 600 and we're in the midst of flying to Seoul. Heheheh can't believe that the day has arrived for our poly graduation trip! ☺️ It's seems all so surreal that we're all gathering together once again to go overseas! Tbh, I wonder when it will be the next time that we will all gather again like this. But for now, let's just enjoy and travel to the world of kimchi! 😍 #seoullongbitches #eggcited #gradtrip #yay
