Day 3 - 7th Feb : of Bukchon, Namsan..and......Hongik Uni again :P

A freezing 'Annyeong' from me! xD
Actually we're planning to check out from Namu Guesthouse today,
but we're not done sightseeing around Hongdae & our foot are too tired anyway,
so we decided that we're extending our stay here for another night.

After a failed mission of searching the Hongik Uni the day before,
we're thinking,why not giving it another shot.

As we walked around this area,with a map of course,
we found the Picasso Street, the oh-so-exciting-club street
(why?bcuz YG-owned club's located there- nb1 & nb2 aka Harlem)

and also the interesting mural street.

Hongdae area is so vibrant,with colorful building as well as interesting aka weird deco,
yeah,it's a youth street.

There's also the 'Hello Kitty Cafe' here in a small alley,but we didn't go inside,
bcuz it's still too early when we arrived. It says that the operation time start only at 11am.

Not far from the Kitty cafe,there's a branch of 'Coffee Prince Cafe' aka "Tiramisu Cafe'.
Owned by MBC,
it's decorated to look like the original cafe,also in this area.

Finally we met the Hongdae Univ!! By the time we reached there, i believed it's lunch hour.
So students were all rushing out,hahaha. This Uni seems more relaxed compared to Yonsei,
even the building speaks itself :P

Suddenly it's gotten too cold, we just can't stand it anymore,so we retrieved to our guesthouse again. Jia told us that it's -10C. aaahh,no wonder!!
We stayed inside for a good couple hours before deciding to make another attempt to go outside.
Bukchon Hanok Village was our destination.
We asked direction from Jia, and braves our way there.

From Anguk station,exit 3,it's Bukchon Hanok Village area.
This place is so cool! Like it's so unique!
The alley,the houses,and there's the wall of a palace next to it.
We followed the direction given,and with the map of several ideal photo spots,
managed to track almost all of them.

If you forget,it's the place that Kim Jongmin covered in the
'Seoul in a day"' special episode of 1n2d.

Later on before it gets dark,we braves our way to Namsan Tower.
By bus 02 from Chungmuro,it goes all the way up to Namsan,and we need to hike a bit.
But damn!!!!! It's very-very-very cold up there!!!!
It's very beautiful though.
We did our best,looking all around ,snapping pictures before running to the waiting buses.
It's getting tooo cold for us & our camera too,
so please mind the low quality pictures :P

This is *pose like Jaejoong* picture.
After i did it,so many tourists did it too.
They're just too shy before that.hahaha

*pose like JJ*

On our way to our place of staying,we stop at one Korean restaurant shop that sells Bibimbap,Ddeokbokki & Ramyeon,etc.

We ordered those three,and barely could finish it all up.
And it only cost us 8500 won,kamsahamnida Ahjusshi!! xD

p/s:Funny how a girl from tropical country travel during winter time,
all that came out from our mouth is just 'COLD'! 'COLD!'
And it's interesting to see Korean girls could wear mini-skirts and leggings
and some even just mini skirt with bare leg,in this bitter cold.
HJ (Namu's manager) said bcuz they're used to it. Wow,like lucky u!
Well anyway,later we learned that it's -12 that day.
No wonder I'm so freakin cold even with 3 layers :O

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…


*the main entrance,the admin building*
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!! (^_~)
