Around Hongdae

Through out our stay in Seoul, we only stayed at one place, Hongdae!
It's very nice there,since the hostels & GHs are located in the neighbourhood.
We get to see & experience the Korean lifestyle better here.
The line 2,Green line,connecting us to many great places.
So we didn't have to transfer too many time.

Hongdae is a lively place,rather very calm during the day,
and so much fun when the dark take over!
The clubs,the small food stall, the cafes,
the young people adds so much more color to Hongdae.
Well,I'm not too good with words,so let the pictures do the talking :D

  2. Hi Fiqah, I really love your blog and updates. Amazing! I'm so jelly right now. hehe. I've got question - the street you were saying abt hongdae being the best place, how do we get there? Coz i also ever stayed in hongdae but i never crossed that "happening" pictures of yours. Which exit or way should i take?

  3. First of all, thanks for the kind words Mimi :D much appreciated.

    Hongdae itself is a great place with so many alleys within the area, and most of the interesting places is really gonna requires you to explore Hongdae, i mean, explore! take time and just walk around it,and u'll see the oh so many awesome thing there. U better spare some time to really enjoy it:D It's best to take exit 1 or 9 of Hongik Univ Station as it's gonna lead you to the centre of the happening area. If u didn't know where to go, u might as well just follow the crowd,well,sometimes following the flow is the best too.

Birdsnest Hostel in Hongdae


It's May already. Been couple of months since my trip to Korea,  and I've been missing that country ever since.  Ahh,I need to go there again and stay longer and explore more! ^_^

So this post is gonna be about the Birdsnest Hostel,  that I stayed while I'm in Seoul.  It's my second hostel after Namu GH.
Owned and run by Mr DongUk Lee. It's a hostel that he just set up after coming back from his RTW trip.
We first arrived at the hostel without any reservation,on one cold day.. Luckily, DongUk  attended us. We asked whether any rooms available and he said yes.
Later he lead us to our dorm room.

We opted for the mixed dorm, 18000 won per person/night after 10% winter-discount. However, he told us to stay in the female dorm,with the same price. Thanks! Usually female only dorm a bit pricy,but he's so nice to let us.

Going to YG Entertainment Building

What a trip to Seoul,South Korea without ever going to see   THE YG Entertainment HQ building for the YG stans?  Be it VIP,LUCKY 7 or BLACKJACK (just naming some),  even seeing the building itself brings joy & excitement to us,right?  Let alone being lucky enough to see the stars up close :D
Going to YG building almost becoming my daily routine,tehee.
*no, i'm not a sasaeng fans*  It's hard not to when you know where it is. Because,it's like,  "this is my only chance to see and experience the awesomeness first hand". Actually I had tried walking from Hongdae to Hapjeong too.  It's not too far though, yes, I did reached YG Building, but it's time & energy consuming. ^^  Best to go by subway or bus, or better taxi.  Haven't tried going by bus or taxi,just subway.  So,here it is.
Take subway Line 2 (Green). Off at Hapjeong Station, exit 8. It's about 5-10minutes from the station,depends on your pace. Hehe,like mine,I bet yours will be as lig…

Hello! The semester is about to kick-off for some students, especially for those SPM-holders. So, as the senior student,I am, welcoming you guys to the Uni life! Please expect fun time learning,meeting and making friends, and great memories to be created as you go along this process.^^

If you happen to be accepted into UiTM Machang Campus,ahah! Then again,i welcome you! Allow me to simply explain about this campus.
UiTM Machang Campus is my current Uni.well actually it WAS my campus while i was doing my Diploma in Accountancy several years ago. After graduating, i was again accepted to further my study at this campus. ^^

It has been wonderful several years for me. Even though the campus is located quite far away from civilization, but that's the special thing about it! When i stated quite far,please do not expect anything like fast food restaurants or shopping mall or even supermarket. The most we have near the campus is 7-Eleven!! (^_~)
