Day 7 - 11th Feb : Gwangjang Market, Angel Wings!

Brrrr,annyeong! I think the weather is getting warmer,
thought it's nearer to 0C,
but as we checked,it's -11C.
hahahaha,have we lost our senses?

So,it's Saturday again! We arrived here last Saturday,
this whole experience feels like dream.
Coming to the beautiful land that we always watch on 1N2D.
So sad that the show will be ending after 6 years , :(
We lost the chance to go to their last recording the other day.

Using the 'Seoul in 1 day' episode as our reference,
today we're heading to the 'Gwangjang Market'!


The place that Mc Kang Hodong went in that episode.

It's a huge market, not really like too traditional market,
but it does sells almost everything from foods to hanbok to kimchis,etc.


There's so many small eateries that sells bibimbap too.
As in the episode, Mc Kang Hodong ate a huge bowl of bibimbap,we'd wanna try too.
But we really have to choose carefully,
since we didn't wanna risk ourselves of eating any haram food.
We scanned the shops thoroughly,and we decided to eat at this ahjumma place that has no appearance of pigs,or anything haram,just bibimbap.

Just before that we bought this veges pancake from an ahjumma,


thus we only ordered a bowl of bibimbap for 5000won.

The ahjumma greeted me with a 'Ni Hao', asking whether I came from Hong Kong.
What? Hong Kong???? Instead I said 'Malaysia' out loud!
hahaha, surprisingly, the ahjumma knew about Malaysia,
and said 'ah,Malaysian, they speak great English' ~well,in Korean of course.

Then we wandered in the market,we found a place that sells kimchi,
many types of them. We tried some of them and bought some 'small crab kimchi'.


After a good hours of strolling around the Gwangjang market, we walked by the stream to Dongdaemun. We wanted to see around the market,but then it's getting colder and our legs was hurting. So we just went straight to our next destination.

All I remember is 'Wangsimni Square'. Just that.not more.
By having just that as direction, we headed to Wangsimni Station,Line 2,which is quite far away from our Dongdaemun station.
Well,just in search for the 'angel wings'!!
It's been said that after the original wings at Ihwa Village made popular by Lee Seung Gi,
the villagers were annoyed by the large amount of visitors flocked there to see the mural,
so they did something unexpected by washing away the mural :(
and after sometime, it's resurface again at the Wangsimni Square.
We're so excited to see it!
I even flashed my Airen's Tshirt!! xDDDD
It's very-very cold,despite the sun.

And since it's Saturday,we wanted to go to the Hongdae Flea market.
The location was right,playground in front of Hongik Univ,
the timing was right,Saturday 1pm -6pm......
but there's no flea market or what so ever!!
Later I learnt that the flea market was not held during Feb,
since it's held only during March-November.
Went home after long day of strolling.
Ouch,our legs........ so lenguh laaaa.....

Birdsnest Hostel in Hongdae

DISCLAIMER: BIRDSNEST HOSTEL HAS MOVED TO A NEW PLACE UNDER THE NAME OF 'THIS IS.. GUESTHOUSE'. THE NEW LOCATION IS JUST CLOSE BY. DROP BY ANY QUESTION.

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…

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!! (^_~)
