Category: Summer Korea 2016


[Travel in August 2016]

We thought a roof top cafe during summer is one of the best way to enjoy the summer. But, we were too late to reach there and they are kind of popular too. haha. Why all the places we went so popular and doesn’t have a seat immediately. lol. Anyway, we managed to get a indoor seat shortly and we thought we were lucky enough.

We didn’t go to the roof top area (its too cold that day, yes its changing season time i think, that why its getting cold already!) I really think if you are there around 4am will be good, so go there earlier to have a sunset view :)

세상의 모든 아침. All morning, in the world.

[Travel in August 2016]

This is one of my most anticipate cafe that I wanted to visit for this trip. I have seen many photos of this cafe in Instagram, and have already listed as number 1 cafe in my heart to visit the next trip with my cousin on her birthday. Though, I have no idea is the food nice but the scenery make it all worth. I’m sure after reading this, you will listed this as one of the place to visit too! :)

And my August trip came unexpected, and we both got so excited because we both really wanted to visit here. And so, we made it happen! :)

#its our last day in Korea, and we have a great meal before the flight. This place is really too pretty! :)

And, you might find all these photo familiar, as when I checked online for the exact full address, I realized many celebrities came here before :) Celebrities Lee Min Jung and Lee Byung Hun celebrated their son first birthday here :) Many celebrities were invited to celebrate this great day with the family. On top of that, I also just realized this Sky Farm is also owned by YG (YG Food is established by YG Entertainment and Noh Hee Kyung – CEO of YG Food) too.

If you are a K-Drama fan, this is gonna be a very familiar filming scene too. I didn’t realise it as the W drama was set in the night.

Han Hyo Joo was “asked to wait” for Lee Jong-suk at the restaurant in the same building where LJS stayed. This is the restaurant setting where HHJ was waiting and got caught eventually. 

LJS also went to the sky farm near the little glass house (5th photo after this) :)

Another recent featuring is Girl Group – APINK also have their MV 내가 설렐 수 있게 here too :)

headed to the Sky Farm at Level 52 :)

[Gangnam] Kakao Friends + Ryan Cafe

[Travel in August 2016]

Yeah! I heard SCREAMMMMMM~ When Kakao Friends Flagship Store opens at Gangnam, It’s so so crowded and everyone wants a piece of Ryan! As much as, there’s some pop-up store in Myeongdong and Sinchon, and one official store in Coex, we knew we can’t have enough of them. So glad that KKF decided to open a gigantic one in Gangnam. This 3 storey high building have all sort of merchandises – from casual, travel, home, bedroom to camp goods :) Level 3 feature my most favourite – the cafe “Ryan Cafe!”

Let me bring you some virtual tour through photos :)

새마을식당 New Maul (Nonhyeon’s Outlet)

[!!!] This New Maul outlet had closed, you may want to visit the one at Sinchon
[Travel in August 2016]

My friend’s korean friend introduce 새마을식당 to us, when we told him that we are going to Gangnam after Manufact (a coffee place) for Ryan Cafe :) The restaurant located in Nonhyeon (subway station is sinnonhyeon) is their main restaurant before they started to have chain restaurants around the city! :)

As someone who do not really like BBQ food/ Pork/ Meat and everything in between, I have to say, this restaurant really serve very very decent and really good BBQ Pork. It’s so nice that, I must bring my cousin here again next year! :)

According to the friend, they have this 7 minutes kimchi-chige that is so good that you must remember to order! So, we were looking forward especially to this even though its pretty much a hot evening :p

20 SPACE : The Mint Universe (Cube’s Cafe)

[Travel in August 2016]

Since Cube Entertainment have shifted their office (& studio) to Seongsu, many can’t wait for their cafe to be opened since their shift. After months and months of wait, they finally opened! This time, while making my way to watch Beautiful Show 2016, I visited their newly rebrand cafe – 20 SPACE :)

Some recaps on the old cube cafe :)

When I first visited Cube Cafe, I love their Black Tea Latte! Its one of my favourite drink in (Korea too) Cube Cafe. Ever since they renovate the cafe, they have removed the drink option :( So, I have been praying hard that the rebrand (cube) cafe will have it! :)
