[Hongdae] Made by [O:Z] 메이드바이오즈

[Travel in March/April 2017]

I remembered I don’t really visit Hongdae that much and this year, I went there about 4-5 times? So, I need to research on places to eat around this area since we will be spending the evening here. And, I found this really interesting dinner place where you can cook your food with cheese and be creative with it. (I wanted, but i didn’t) But, heading somewhere new was something I always like to do in Korea, and now with my best cousin, she will delighted to try new food too! :D

[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 :)

Bong Dae Bak – Uongole Spaghetti House

Last year march when we visited Thanks Nature Cafe, we happened to see the Uongole Spaghetti House next to it, looking really extremely delicious. But with heavy stomach and we only managed to fill our tummy with only strawberry waffles at Thanks Nature Cafe. So, we demanded a-must-visit eatery this time (when we visited in august 2013, its been a year!).

As this trip was kinda impromptu, not exactly few weeks before the rush, but we decided to go for it only if we managed to get our encore tickets and only deciding the day before their HK’s tour. Guess we were not very particular for seating, as our wish is really simple – be part of the orange sea. And with a little bit of luck, we managed to get the tickets within 15minutes…? Happy and definitely, we were excited as well as we were able to meet our friend Kyungbin for a meal. Having thinking where to have our meal together because she was staying a little far and having her to travel to the city of seoul will be a little bit too far :) So, we settled with Bong Dae Bak at Hongdae! :)

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.

[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.

♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥

My very FIRST time celebrate my birthday oversea
It’s full of laughter and in fact memories.

My very FIRST time having a Standing BBQ meal.
This BBQ store is just located 5mins away from our guesthouse in Sinchon, and its always overwhelming with people.

My very FIRST time attending a Korean Full Fledge Concert.

Writing this post gave me lots of memories.

Thank you Korean Air and KTO for organize this program :)

Thanks Nature Cafe in Hongdae

This post is definitely for someone who love animals, and in fact Sheep :) This is the closest encounter I had with sheep and they are just simply cute. Though I went Aussie before, and there’s plenty of sheeps around as well, but not so close, really far in fact. So, when I watched We Got Married, featuring Leeteuk and Kang Sora, and got to know this cafe that the owner own 2 sheeps and placed them in his cafe. I knew, this must be in my Cafe Hopping itinerary. This is freaking awesome, and basically in a street of Hongdae (kinda similar to our bugis etc) is like amazing!

Besides, they served NICE WAFFLES too! I love discovering Cafes… and this is definitely one that I will be back :)

Before that, show you a short clip of the sheep :)
