[Sinsa Garosu-gil] Cafe Mula 카페뮬라

[Travel in March/April 2017]

I have been wanting to visit Mula because of the interior of how the cafe looks like. It’s doesn’t disappoint us as we spent really alot of times taking photos outside of Cafe Mula as well as the indoor too. So much that, we felt a little shy to do that – but we still haha :p I love how everything look so minimalist and this is really the beauty of the cafe. I totally forget about what the cafe serves :p We also decided to give Felicia a little birthday surprise that day! :)

[ASIAN ON-AIR PROGRAM 2013] My Unforgettable Travel Story: My Many First in Korea

 photo 555606_10151751127380753_211716431_n_zps31dd3256.jpg

Get to know more about this Asian On Air Program from facebook, and thought that I could share some of my travel experience
with fellow bloggers and readers. Nevertheless, I have been blogging about my travelogue from times to times…
and I thought this is a great opportunity to share my travel experience in 1 entry. But it has never been easy to write
something so fun,experiential into words. And I personally agreed this – A picture tells a thousand words.

Since during my secondary school years, I have grow a tiny love toward Korea.
I watched many korean dramas which feature many oftheir culture, their food, their tourist spots
and not forgetting their wonderful soundtracks that came with it.
As the years goes, my love for Korea get bigger and bigger… and finally I manage to travel to Korea in 2011.

A dream come true, a perfect and wonderful dream.

Till date, I have travel to Korea for 4 time, and during this 4 time, I travelled to Seoul, Jeju, Busan and Jeonju.
It’s quite an eye-opening to experience what we never able to in our own country.
I had lots of ‘first time’ during Korea trip despite I have already been there for the 4th time.
Nevertheless, let me share with you “MY MANY FIRST IN KOREA” Story.

Banana Tree in Sinsa : Flower Pot Dessert (바나나 트리)

바나나 트리 Banana Tree at Sinsa

Remember how much I love Cafe hopping in Korea (Australia & Singapore) as well, this summer trip, we included quite a fair bit of cafe visit but due to the time limit, we only managed to go for a few one :( but, we manged to visit the one we really wanted – Banana Tree. And we were happy with the dessert :D

This cafe is quite a surprise because they are actually located quite off the subway so ‘maybe’ not many people knew about it. It’s petite and cosy cafe, handling by young ladies (during my visit). How I wish, I could have a cafe like this too. A pity that, Cin can’t join us but we promised to visit together next time :)

#Rilakkuma is excited for his first visit here. A comparison of the dessert with a mini soft toy. A good share for 2, but definitely enough for 1.

POP Container Cafe

As everyone know, this is my 3rd trip to Korea, and a very very long trip according to many. For the first few trips, I explore alot within Seoul, knowing Korea with lots of KPOP factor. This trip aside from SHINHWA CONCERT, I hope to explore more new and different places and that includes Cafe Hopping, and many day tour around Korea.

Cafe, is the topic I’m going to share now. Korea have all kind of interesting cafes, and with this agenda, we visited quite a handful of cafes this trip. Since the 3 of us wasn’t very hungry that day we decided to have dessert at around 5pm… and we headed to POP CONTAINER CAFE that serves Tall Oreo Patbingsu. Yes, Oreo, it IS the first oreo patbingsu I ever ate.

Patbingsu is a popular shaved ice dessert in Korea. Usually ate during Spring and Summer, though its Spring, and feel like Winter in Korea (during the time I was there…), we still go ahead to have it :P

Roule Galette in Melbourne

In such a lovely country, definitely, relax like a princess, behaving like a tai tai, here we are in a Crepes cafe for a short dessert break. Holidays means keep eating and carry on drinking haha! Walking distance in the city Melbourne, then again, I think googling will be a great help to navigate yourself to this Crepes place! :) You could take train to Flinders Street Station.
