Hello Korea 2022/2023 Day 1: Around Han-nam, Rockfish Weatherwear, Mardi Mercredi, Cosmic Mansion
[Travel in December 2022 – January 2023]
After a quick lunch at 보승회관 홍대, headed directly to Han-nam dong. Honestly I do not usually go Han-nam / Itaewon. Usually its really to do my luggage tags (which I have plenty haha). This time round, I will take this opportunities to visit a few more stores around there since I am around the area.
My first stop was Rockfish Weatherwear, they are the next hit after UGG in Korea. I thought since I wanted to get UGG might as well get a pair of Rockfish Weatherwear. Besides, I actually wanted to get their shawl and gloves as well, but ended up I didn’t. One should not spend so much on her day one haha!
I didn’t get much stuff except a black boots. I am happy with my purchase because I changed it at night and feel so much warm! But, I think, I still need a waterproof one for long run. I forgotten the problem I had in Hokkaido when there’s lots of snow haha :p
My 2nd stop is Mardi Mercredmardi as there a sensation over their sweater wear, no idea why. haha. But I thought since I am around the area, why not? In fact, it was only 5minutes away from Rockfish Weatherwear.
I didn’t get anything, probably I didn’t like them that much as what others shown online.
This is one of the places I really want to visit aside from Granhand 🙂 Since its around the area, I decided to drop by before continue my winter-wear hunt haha. Honestly I was really looking very forward coming here, maybe because the anticipation and the talk about Cosmic Mansion seems to be of a HOT topic.
I don’t have the best experience here because of the SA. But, I just make myself at home and get what I wanted. I think she probably look at me without branded and look like someone who just want to try everything? haha. It’s okay lah, I like Granhand more.
Walking around Hannam-dong 🙂
It’s interesting to like explore somewhere, I been but not really go often. So it always feel a little new 🙂
