Day 31: Namsan Tower & Insadong

Day 30 was spent at home sick, but also got much needed rest for a full day of fun and play for Day 31!!

Had Church as usual in the morning, then went to 본죽 (porridge chain store) in Myeongdong. I shared one with Jha Hyun for about 10 000W but definitely more than enough for the both of us. Continue reading


Day 29: ice cream for breakfast lunch and tea

I left my camera at home that day so I didn’t take any photos. Rose and I went to Myeongdong and shopped for around 6 hours! It was crazy. I also tried the loooong soft serves that they have on almost every corner! I can’t remember if it costs 1 500W or 2 000W but I had a vanilla and green tea one. It was soo nice. The texture is so foamy and creamy at the same time. Definitely need to go get another one soon!!

Day 25: stwawberry

On Monday, I went to Myeongdong Cathedral again for mass in my new vans. They were way too small for me (I’m so bad at buying shoes, I always get the wrong size I swear) so my feet were covered in blisters by the time mass ended. Luckily Andrea and the others hadn’t left yet and I was able to find a pay phone and call her to bring me the box my shoes came in as well as my thongs (for me to change into). After an hour of standing at Myeongdong station waiting for them, I could finally get out of my way-too-small vans ):. I exchanged them at the ABC Mart in Myeongdong, thanks to Jha Hyun who acted a my translator! Continue reading

Day 4: 명동에 쇼핑하로 갔다!

This is the room Siying and I were meant to have for the first few days we arrived.

Because the system messed up, Backpackers Inside rearranged another room for us with two single beds rather than one double bed so we only slept in this room for one night. But actually, we both would’ve preferred this room to the one we were in for two nights because it is SO spacious and so comfy. The bathroom also has a higher ceiling. Continue reading

Day 3: 명동대성당 & COEX Aquarium

I went to Myeongdong Cathedral for Mass this morning! I wasn’t really sure how to get there, except to get out at Exit 8, but luckily I recognised the place from watching You’re Beautiful and had a general idea of what to look out for, not to mention the Cathedral is so big that you can see it over most of the shops we passed! After Mass, I joined Siying, who had been waiting for me the entire time, at Holly’s Coffee for breakfast.

Waffle with cream and apple blossom ice tea!
