Day 7, 22 May, Friday
So while shy was adamant about sleeping in, off j and I went to explore the nearby area. Sun was out, I was happy. yup that’s about it. We went to shop! I don’t remember buying much. hhaha.
I think we went home to put our stuff down and then.. OFF TO A DOG CAFE. OH MY GOD. samoyeds, malamutes… and the nippon paint dog wtf HAHAH SORRY DONT KNOW THE BREED. oh btw, i bought new sports shoes hahaha.
Ok back to dog cafe I was totally at home, can you not tell? I forsee myself doing this to my dogs and the dog going ‘wtf charbs, plz. stahp. i’m not a table’ I think I died and went to dog heaven…. T_T
Ok but this dog heaven not that good. dogs only come to you if you have food. IT AIN’T TRUE LOVE. but since i’m a slut for doggy love -sigh- I went around chasing them. screaming in my heart ‘STOP RUNNING AWAY JUST LET ME LOVE YOU’
Uhh I won’t say I’m obsessed over brown.. but you know, people can judge all they want hahahaha. How can you not love a face like that?
Anyway, Gangnam is crazy! lotsa shops that look so parisian. the way people dress is quite different too!
Met shy for just about.. 30mins or so, because I was meeting oppa and oenni for dinner!! ❤ Haven’t seen oppa in the longest time~ Having him as a housemate was really one of the best things that happened to my family last year. I’m so glad we became more than housemates, oppa’s just like family.. very caring, very generous… and I remembered one night he played monopoly with my siblings and I, and we had a fun time negotiating deals lol.
Anyway, oppa and oenni brought me to eat spicy chicken. yumyum~~~ Look at the pot..
If you notice the wall behind me, they’ve aprons! ahaha. in case kids (such as myself) or adults wearing white kena the sauce I suppose.
Thereafter, we (ok, oppa) drove to Hyundai shopping mall. these conglomerates.. it’s crayyyy. And they were telling me that condos are more expensive than landed property in gangnam.. I also found out both of them live in gangnam. Uhhhh. ahaha.
We went to the supermarket! I LOVE SUPERMARKETS. food…food everywhere. bought my mom her orange tea, mentaiko, and the super spicy korean noodles. ahh kamsahamida oppa. I told him I heard about the noodles and he insisted on buying it for me. Noodles are yummy btw, the fire chicken noodles. I like it with cheese.. otherwise it’s just spicy without much taste.
This is the noodles.
We did some walking.. just some because oppa hates perspiring. in fact, in singapore, our house was 3 bus stops away from NUS and he’d take a cab to school every day… it was actually quite cooling at night, thus my hoodie!
And because I haven’t gone to Seoul Tower, that was our next stop!! ahhh I seriously felt so blessed, both of them came to find me after a long day of work, and they brought me to so many places! We drove around quite a bit because in oppa’s words “I bought a car so I would never need to walk!!!” Well.. we ended up walking to the summit hehehehe. quite an experience, I was perspiring, so I took off my hoodie, then I got cold, and put it back on.. repeat.
Here’s a peek!
After this we went up to the observatory.
Took a super fast lift and it was really cool, there was some animation that showed us shooting upwards and into space lol. dream come true.
Yup that’s the moon! had a pretty good view of the city that night… Don’t worry mbs you’re still my favourite!
Ok one last look before we leave! They also had arrows everywhere, pointing to the direction where each city was ahahah.
We also had Sundae. No, not the ice cream. but this is rice noodles/beehoon, packed in pork skin or something? I don’t really know. Not a fan of this either. The skin was tough and I was so afraid to eat it lol. But i enjoyed the rice noodles so I just ate the insides and removed the skin.
Was bursting at the seams by the time we were done with our supper… Ahaha I love sitting in those korean ‘restaurants’. so authentic. only because I watched “successful story of a bright girl” when I was younger and always saw the street food.. And I thought.. man.. I’ve to do that one day. Eat bbq on the streets under the tents, drink soju (LOL)… so now that i’ve done that.. whoopie!
They sent me home after that.. ahhh. Not sure when i’ll see them.. but hopefully soon! oppa has to come to singapore for work at least once a year, hoping he’ll come in december!
Okay, off to bed now, the next post would be about my best (and also second last) day ever in korea!
