[Hongdae] Kakao Friends Concept Museum

[Travel in March/April 2017]

I was really excited to visit this Museum in Hongdae during my March/April trip this year. I also know that, this Museum has officially close on 28 May 2017. But Good New is that, they are planning for Season 2. So look out for it when it’s re-open hehe. Entrance ticket is 3000won, yet you able to get 3,000won discount if you purchase anything in the Museum too! :) So, it’s almost free if you get a notebook out of there too haha So worth to travel with all the characters too! :)

No words, just photos, a good journey with this cute characters and their history! :)

P.S. I also removed all the direction to this outlet because they are moving real soon, so pointless to share it unless you really want me to share :)

Hongdae: Tokkijung Project 토끼정(停)

[Travel in March/April 2017]

I’m sure you did find the increase of this whipped cream dish appearing on instagram or facebook very often. And, if you are a follower of #hellosihuigoeskorea / ig: @superstarhui, you did see it too. My friends and I like it and conclude it really deserve a post in hellosihui.com haha. So here you go, I’m gonna first share of our March/April trip here :)

Tokkijung Project 토끼정(停) is first located in Gangnam area, where they served Japanese cuisine. But, I found another outlet in Hongdae, and very please to visit there since we wanted to go some shopping at Aland (oh my favourite!), so it will be really great to dine in Hongdae instead. While we opt out of BBQ and picked this creamy choice instead was pretty much one of the best decision we made in Hongdae haha.

#Hongdae outlet looks pretty from the outside… (& inside)

 photo IMG_6528 copy_zpscr3eciyu.jpg
#and… its 3 storey high :)

 photo IMG_6529 copy_zpsciwcozmp.jpg
#the view.

 photo IMG_6527 copy_zpsqn2srjfg.jpg
#the menu is appetising enough for us to visit without any 2nd thoughts :p

So, are you ready for the food? This time round, we had 4 of us, and we ordered a little bit more to try :)

 photo IMG_6506 copy_zpsxjqthtsf.jpg
#our drink came first. We wanted something different so we order something interesting. a fruity milk soda and a fruity soda drink :) We were really wondering how this milk soda taste and in fact, its really really nice and interesting. We were overwhelmed by the taste haha

 photo IMG_6520 copy_zpsdv92z99p.jpg
#we got the food box which have beef and chicken and some sides, which is amazing tasty! The girls love the beef alot, while, chicken is still very good! :)

 photo IMG_6517 copy_zpsfitvjlbj.jpg
#everyone love rice, and whats more with egg and hams haha!

 photo IMG_6516 copy_zpsq6n29hnk.jpg
#this is the amazing cream curry udon that you had and must order if you are here haha! Its prety much a very very simple dish…. at first I thought its a carbonara type of udon. but its wasnt. when you stirred it, its mixed well with the curry udon and its not even too heavy in taste. It’s just perfect, and amazing haha.

 photo IMG_6512 copy_zpsjqajpfie.jpg
#because we are unsure about how well we can take a cream udon so we order a normal curry udon which is not bad too. But we conclude, we could have just order the cream one next time haha.

#our order :)

Running Man HAHA’s Loco Quan 401 at Hongdae (런닝맨 하하 401홍대)

I have blogged about Running Man HAHA’s Mak chang restaurant (Pal Ja Mak Chang) back then in 2012. In 2014, they actually went through some remodelling and back as Loco Quan 401 with changed menu. And during my recent trip (March/April 2015) I visited his brand new restaurant with my friends and tried their speciality – Jeju Black Pork. I remembered how tasty and juicy it was during my 2011 and 2013 Jeju trips! So, I’m pretty excited to try their new menu! :) If you visited Pal Ja Mak Chang before, Loco Quan 401 is located at the same place. (He even opened 401 at the most famous tourist spot – Myeongdong too)

aA Cafe, The Design Museum at Hongdae

aA design museum is not just a museum, its also gather the fun of design, arts and definitely korea’s culture – coffee and dessert. This might look like another ordinary cafe that serves drinks, but you could never imagine the furniture you seen is all over the world. The owner of this entire loft is owned by Kim Myung Hwan, a famous vintage furniture collector.  The collection varies and are also for sales for you whom might be interested :) Such cosy yet design place in a noisy hip Hongdae is really worth visiting.

While searching the exact address for this aA Cafe when I’m back to realize that this cafe is used as BoA’s Only One MV. I didn’t know much about the MV only to know much more after I’m back. This is a very pretty cafe to visit, so I guess its still worth visiting even you are not a KPOP fan.
