[Seoul] 팔팔민물장어

[Travel in March/April 2017]

I love Eel or some called it Unagi. I love fishes and almost all kinds except those fried type. So, when I first visited 황가네 꼼장군 I was excited to try this baby eel that I never ate it before. I thought its really tasty and I never ate something that taste like this at all. I guessed, I am really challenging when I travelling, I basically give a try to almost everything except anything-seaweed-or-vinegar haha! So, after the visit at  황가네 꼼장군, I searched around and found this 신촌 풍천장어. So the recent trip, I wanted to bring the girls to eat Eel yet its somewhere new. Really New & Luxury hahahahhahhaha!

Please forgive me of the not-so-sharp-photos for the direction guide as the rain was pretty heavy and I doesn’t have an umbrella.

Eel’s bone, its like crackers, and its quite addictive! :p

The menu, we accidentally ordered the luxury eel at 85,000won each (85USD) lol

It’s really expensive as it cost 170,000won for this meal, but I think we all ended up have happy tummy! :)

 

Direction to 팔팔민물장어

I’m sorry that the photo turned out quite badly due to the heavy rains, and the lens was blurred, I didn’t realise it until I was back home.
But, its not too difficult to figure out the way, and its quite easy after exit too :)

Anyway, when I was checking the exact english name of this restaurant (which eventually I can’t find lol), I then realise, this is the one that Jung-Suk (Ha Seok-Jin in Drinking solo) went. I love that drama, its so simply and actually telling quite alot of facts about working life too.

#fly2perth : Prologue

I have heard alot of my friends sharing how boring Perth is and how they doesn’t want a return trip there. But, I love Perth, enjoyed alot during the 10 days I am there. Its not my first time to Australia, I have been to Melbourne and Tasmania and really love there especially Tasmania. Aside from Korea, Australia is my favourite place to visit. So, I am in fact looking so much forward to Perth.

While doing research about Perth, I got really excited because of I wanted to try alot of activties and visit alot of places of interests. On top of everything, I am going to meet 3 group of friends that I haven been meeting for very long!

So much so, its all about excitement.
(L to R) Brunch, Hot Airballoon, By the Sea

Not only this, we went for to an island:Rottnest with Zijie, our secondary school friend! :)

I remembered I was really busy that period (May 2015 – October 2015), so this Perth trip right after my busy period came right in time. In fact, I can’t wait for the 10 days break and have lots of fun there.

I will be sharing all my 10 days in Perth from today onwards. Hope you will love Perth as much as I do :)

(side track, i’m keeping some nice places to visit in korea after this, so stay tune!)

Goodbye Melbourne!

Goodbye Melbourne.
You have been really great and wonderful.
You give me a totally amazing and in fact awesome holiday.
It’s my very first time to a English speaking country.
It’s my very first time travel somewhere that takes 7 hours.

I experienced something very different from the usual country I visited.
I love the fact that people in Australia are so friendly.
Everything from them are “Awesome, Beautiful”
this indeed made your day.

Looking through and blogging the past few days on this trip…
REALLY make me missing a lot. It’s that wonderful like my photos.

If you realize, I have been talking to you about Aussie non-stop.
The amazing Apartment cleaner, the friendly construction worker etc.

I really need to thanks the Yodo and Teng for being a great companion.
And new friend John too. *flip hair*

Hello launceston!!!

I know it’s probably quite a sad moment to know and to face the fact that we need to leave for Launceston. We really love Swansea so much especially the stay at Cottage was fab! We really drag and fare good bye to this perfect and wonderful place. The saddest thing was that we TOTALLY forget about taking photos with the very nice couple!!! :(

But, you know, there’s always the next time, and wishing this would come soon —- but Aussie is such an expensive place to stay! OMG :/

I’m missing Australia so much that I can’t believe it. I still love Seoul, Korea… then anything else. But Australia being the first ‘english’ country I visited, a place that I travel with my bffs, lots of fun and happy and definitely heart to heart talks too. Though many say its seems like I been to a long trip, but its a ‘rush trip’ and of cos, it’s never enough when we are traveling with friends. Or should I say it.. HOLIDAYS WITH FRIEND, AWAY FROM WORK… is never enough! haha :) Australia is a place for seafood lover…! You know, how much I love Salmon, Fish, and anything in between… And, I think I had Salmon everyday! So so so blessed and it’s filled with happiness. My happiness is so easily contented with just salmon… LOL! But you should know where I’m getting from… :)

I have posted the photo above on my instagram as well as twitter, but I thought, I should left a footprint here too! I love my camera, I think I see a great difference from the quality from my S90. S90 is good, just that Pen3 seems even better, definitely, it’s like almost a DSLR price.. IT SHOULD BE GOOD! haha :)

Meanwhile, I shall continue my entries… IT IS TAKING WAY TOO LONG ;/
