SEOUL DIARY DAY 3

23 July 2014

Finally my second post on my Seoul trip! This was Day 3! Woke up late, grabbed a hot cuppa latte from a hidden, cosy coffee cafe near our guesthouse before rushing to Tosokchon to try the famous samgyetang (chicken ginseng soup)!

Initially, i was thinking, meh how good can ginseng chicken soup be? I mean i don’t eat this often in Singapore but i had pretty good ones over here before and Tosokchon’s will probably just be another overrated soup. But oh boy i was so wrong. It is the best ginseng chicken soup i’ve had….so far. I love how soft the chicken is and how fragrant the glutinous rice, ginseng and all the other herbs they used are. Very authentic and filling! I am very bad at describing food but i was so so so satisfied and happy with my meal after! For those who are interested (you should really try it anyway!!!): 5, Jahamun-ro 5-gil, Jongno-gu, Seoul

After which,  we headed to gyeongbokgung palace to do some sightseeing! I’ve always loved to watch shows from this era and am always amazed by their histories and architectures

Still bummed that i didn’t get to try on and take a photo in the Korean Hanbok :(

Pretty tasty beansprouts-kimchi-pork belly road side dish! I love how there’s food everywhere! Just like in Bangkok. Why can’t we have road side stalls all over Singapore too!!!?

How is the new layout looking? It’s not entirely done up yet, still in the midst of getting certain pages and links to work, and doing some final touches but so far i am really liking it! The web designer has been such a joy to work with (more info on that later in a seperate post!), especially since i’m so bloody fickle yet she is still so patient with me hahaha and thank you to all those who have been dropping me suggestions – be it through emails, or on my ask.fm!

I can’t even believe it’s already July… How did 7 freaking months just passed by like that?! Something’s gonna change this July anyway! It is quite a decision that i had to make, the people i have to leave and disappoint but i’m thankful that everyone’s been really nice and encouraging towards me despite all these. I wish i can share more about this but i guess i will leave it till a later date. I sense a long speech coming up on that…. Hahaha. Meanwhile, i’ll see you guys on the other side – @itsfranxcesca!
