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 :(

Loved this picture of us!!!
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!!!?
Just another shot of our favourite egg muffin, yum.
And then we headed to BAU House!!!!! Ah soooo happy we made our way there because if we didn’t, i wouldn’t have met my love, Beo-ri! Scroll down further, it’s below hehe
And that’s the dog whisperer. Haha i think he’s the owner of BAU House but seriously, he seems to be able to communicate with the doggies. So jealous!
This is baby husky!!!! Gonna grow up just as handsome as Beo-ri, i’m sure hehehe
Can you tell how huge he is?!!
Probably my favourite shot from this trip. So glad i managed to get a nice picture with him. Hee thanks Soph :*
For all the dog lovers here who are planning a trip to Seoul, don’t forget to visit this dog cafe! Here’s the add if you’re interested: Jeil Bldg. 1F, 394-44 Seogyo-dong, Mapo-gu, Seoul :)
Hope you enjoyed this post! I haven’t been feeling well for the past few days now so i’m going to hit the sack first. Be right back with more visuals!
BKK TRIPPIN’ #2
28 February 2014
Another travel pictorials update! This time we are going to the Land of Smiles – Bangkok! Sigh i love love LOVE doing posts like this…. How i wish i can (afford to) do this at least once every month sigh. Any agencies wanna sponsor me trips out of Singapore? Haha
Mandatory on-flight selfie!
Stayed at Berkeley Hotel Pratunam! It’s a lovely hotel, very spacious and the hotel staffs are super helpful and friendly but i wouldn’t recommend you to book your stay there during this period because the hotel is located diagonally opposite the pratunam intersection where the rally is! So it’s kinda dangerous… But do check out this hotel the next time when the situation is calmer!
Meet my 2 gorgeous travel companions!!! It is so easy travelling with them because we are all so alike! Especially when it comes to ordering food…. We can haz all our favourite dishes together!!!! Heh
Dined at Di Vino at Thong Lor. This Spinach and Cheese Ravioli is SO good!!! I love ravioli!
I also really enjoyed this 4 flavours thin crust pizza!
Met my friend after that to have drinks together and some catch up! Every single time i’m in BKK, i always have the urge to learn how to speak thai! Somehow the language and accent really appeals to me…
Got dragged up early next day to prepare for some groceries shopping and shopping at Chatuchak!
Good lighting calls for some selfies heh.
We headed to Big C to do our groceries shopping and can i just take a moment to say how freaking lucky we were? I can’t imagine if we reached or left Big C slightly later, we would probably witness the explosion that happened right outside Big C which killed 2 children. I can still remember when we walked towards the intersection where the rally were, i still exclaimed how carnival-like it was and i still wanted to shop at those street stalls. Sigh… So guys, the situation there might look quite peaceful at times but you will never know you know…. Plus there are more and more explosions happening so really, please be careful!!!
Anyway we rushed back to the hotel after avoiding the explosion outside Big C and headed to Chatuchak! Which was bloody warm and crowded by the way.
Back to the hotel to wash up before getting ready for the night! Gorgeous gorrrrgeous necklace from Alive & Live! Will post a better picture on my IG soon. The colours are beautiful!
Had dinner at the famous T&K restaurant located at Chinatown! The food here are cheap and tasty. The only thing i really hate about this place is probably that there are so many roaches around!!!! UGH can’t stand.
Headed to After You for desserts! Here we have the Banana Crumble….
The famous Thick Hazelnut Toast….
And this Chocolate Lava Cake!
Just look at how gooey the chocolate is!!!! The desserts are reaaaally good. If you have the chance, and spare stomach space after dinner, remember to check out After You Dessert Cafe located at Thong Lor Soi 13, J Avenue.
Oh right here’s a picture of the necklace in colours! How pretty is it??!?! And before i forgot, i got this cream tweed top from The Nine Dame! I love how it is so versatile! You can either dress it up or wear it out causally.
Went to House of Beers to chill further because the night was still young… And because the road beside our hotel was blocked so we decided we should stay out a lil longer!
Some selfies early in the morning again before a bit more shopping and catching the flight back to Singapore! The soft white mesh blouse that i’m wearing is from ShopJenith!
Had really bad dinner before flight so after we landed in SG, X brought us to Kko Kko Nara for some really good stews, rice cakes and chicken!!! Yum! Kko Kko Nara is located at 57 Tras Street and are opened from 5pm – 4am! New supper place maybe…? Haha.
So i guess that’s the end of my short trip! Didn’t shop much, didn’t take much photos… But i had so much fun sigh i really want to be back in BKK. I want to explore places the locals go to, i want to go to the countryside to hike and see sceneries, i want to attend their local arts and fashion events…or the fleas. Meep. I really pray for Bangkok to be calm and peaceful again.
