Just before this, I had a birthday celebration with the lovely girls together with Cin. It’s the lovely birthday month – May. I still remember few months back, I was already excited over buying my air ticket. The next moment, I was actually on my way to Changi Airport. I would say that, it’s more like a dream come true. The long wait since I’m a young little 15-16years old girl.
This morning, Daddy fetched me to Airport (I almost typed Korea LOL). And, Joanne the little maknae had already sitting there! I pull my pretty red hot luggage with my piro piro neck rest that suppose to accompany me for 6 hours on flight. And, our lovely Mrs Park & Mrs Heo was already (since yesterday) there sending us off~ And, next having BK breakfast together with the lovely MRS SS501. LOL! And, just before that we checked in with about 17KG luggage each…..! How much stuff did we actually bought from Singapore to Korea?
#Passport with my two tickets (SG-HK ticket // HK-KR ticket)
#BK Breakfast with Mrs Park & Mrs Otter ^^
# Photo with Youngsaeng! :D
Soon, we found ourselves waving goodbye to both of them, and wondering around DFS, and can’t imagine that we have already on our way there. It’s like really like a dream, till now, I can’t believed it happened. You know, IT HAPPENED! OMG!
# Trying to act like a celebrity! haha!
# Photo with our plane! :D Helloooo Helloooo
It’s my first time taking Cathay, and it wasn’t as bad as other Airline, though I really prefer SQ so much. As I wanted to keep my budget low, we took Cathay and transit over at Hong Kong! And, we actually saved at least $300! (and spent it elsewhere LOL) So, shortly, off our phone, and next moment, we are already on our way to Hong Kong!
# Breakfast was served! Not nice leh~
Food Served, wasn’t that amazing and soon 3hours later, we landed in Hong Kong! It’s seems like we are actually traveling here! With roughly 2 hours of transit, we went to shop DFS walking around aimlessly. The last time, I was here at this airport was more than 10years ago! Branded store definitely deserved a visit~ lol~ Well, DFS Tiffany and Co are just simply pretty!
#HK Airport is SOOOOOO BIGGGGGG that we have to took a train to our Gate! haha!
And we went to have a drink and sandwiches~ Lucky I bought SGD along! And just simple food it cost us SGD25! And i have return of SGD25 worth of HKD! I want to go Disneyland :P
# And the bill was like OMG! It’s one of our most expensive meal during our trip! :)
2 hours wasn’t exactly that long, we found ourselves boarding another plane, and this time, it is to Korea – Incheon. And, I think both of us are pretty excited and obviously can’t wait for anymore. In just another short 3 hours, we will reached our destination! The plane wasn’t full but it was pretty “pack” with Koreans. ME LIKE! I love the feeling mixing with Koreans, and be part of them :P
# Filling up some form :)
And, soon we were offered dinner… this time was good! :) And, one thing is that, those Koreans who board the same plane, did not want any meal! What a waste, this time, the food is good :P And just about 45mins before landed, the Korean girls who sat near us… was putting makeup, and tying their hairs! Whoa, these indeed different! Koreans really have good complexion and their make up is light and natural~ Jealous!
And we reached!!!! :)
Leaving the plane was never THIS HAPPY…. we rushed down and got our luggage.
#Incheon Airport also very big! We have to take a train over haha :P
And in no time, we were heading out buying our bus tickets! HAHA! It’s indeed a fast speed as we are going to depart in another 15mins. We rushed to SK Telecom, and got our phone rental! :) Then, we rushed for the bus. Soon, we found ourselves leaving Incheon Airport… Hello Seoul!
#Feeling excited! :D
#Hello Hyunbin! :)
As there’s some problem when we first emailed and ask for rooms availability over STV. Hence, in the end, we managed to find rooms at Hongdae – Sakurabo. We have no idea how’s the rooms look, and a little worried as well. Cherry, the owner of Sakurabo, fetched us at Hongdae station. We dragged our luggage from Hongdae station all the way to Sakurabo. I was so thankful that the girls got me a 4-wheel luggage! I can’t imagine, if I brought one that is only 2-wheel. It was such a LONG WALK from the station, and it’s quiet and dark. It wasn’t what we thought… And, when we reached our HOME for 25 days… we got shocked again, this is indeed no joke! As, we didn’t actually thought we will stayed for 25days after looking at the condition of the house. And, we just din want to pay FULL SUM… and, we insist only paying for 7 days. (I really think, lucky we insist and paid only 7 days!).
I don’t even have much photos of the guesthouse. Oh my! We explained to Cherry that, we have to wait for our friend to arrive the coming Thursday to pay her the full sum because we do not have enough cash. And, it will be good, and let’s bb unnie and alice to see the condition of the house, before we decide what to do next.
We have so much question on how clean the guest house was, and were all the utensils safe to use? We din even dare wash our clothes using their washing machine. Really, we are THIS unsure of their cleanliness. There’s no aircon (though the weather is very cold, but summer soon leh!) in the room, nor there is any heater as well. So how? Even, the room wasn’t very well-clean, though Cherry had already said she cleaned in the morning (or?) So much so much complains, and also, I believed both Joanne and me got a real shock of our life! Seriously! OMG!
And, hopefully we did not need to think that much… We headed out…….! It’s quiet, very quiet……! And we headed out to DongDaeMun (DDM) for a late night experience of how SEOUL is like! ^^ We decided not to go for a shopping, and headed for our dinner-supper.
#Left the guesthouse… :)
#Can you see our excited look on our face when we heading out? :D
#Joanne love banana milk… :D
# This is the machine, we bought our T-Money (ez-link card)
#We even saw 2AM :)
#Something good about their station, they have drink/food within the station! :D
#took their subway from Hongik University (Hongdae)
#Stocking/Legging everywhere :D
#Anyhow go in…. and is……. :D
#The food is SOOOOO GOOD!!! :) We are so lucky to eat something really taste good! Yummy! :D
#hello hello~ Kara ^^ Jumping Jumping~
#This really taste good! :D The fries is well-cooked! :D
#The scarf/shawl that I lost :((
DDM was so happening at night. It’s look as if the next day wasn’t a working day and everyone seems to be out of home, shopping or drinking! Seems like Koreans really work hard, play hard. Something I thought, Singaporeans should learn from them. We just worked TOO HARD and forget what is play sometimes…
#We headed to 7-11 to get Joanne’s T-Money and get some tibits :D
#Joanne’s T-Money! :)
I feel a little sorry for Joanne, because, I told her to go back earlier, because, we did not know the situation of our surrounding after 12. I am a person who feel really insecure sometimes… And, our place need quite a long walk, and there wasn’t much shops/lights as well~ And, we ended our first night THIS EARLY >.<
(While sleeping, I actually woke up a few time because, there’s really LOUD shouting and stuff. Which eventually, worries me a lot. Sengkang is really not this loud, and pretty safe in a way. I will sleep without any shouting or screaming outside of my windows~ So, it seems like in any point of time, they can just jumped into our room, and carried on to their fight! haha!!!)
Guess what we do on our 2nd day?
Who we actually met on our 2nd day?
And, what happened to us after those worried?
Stay Tune! ^^
