Korea Trip update~ ^o^

So May already gone and now it's June!
What a bummer for not updating the blog.
Well oh well,been caught by lazy bugs..what do u know?! hahaha

The trip was 2 weeks long for me..
A week with le familia & another just for me & kila.
We're crazy bunch ya must already know by now right.
I'll try to blog about it all in an ill-long post..cause I'm lazy :P

Kicked off the trip with a visit to Jeju-do.
What a pleasant trip we had.
Jeju-do, I do miss u already by now, and of course I'd love to go back!!!!
The flowers were still blooming though it's already late spring.



We rented a car & wander around Jeju with no tight plans or anything..just us & the beautiful Jeju..From the coast to the Hallasan,to the magnetic road..climbing Seongsan Ilchulbong & Sangumburi, met the Hanyeos..proud to say we did it! Of course a trip with me will not really include the visit to the museums that much.Why? Well, experience the Jeju yourself! Immerse in the nature & surroundings.

The next stop was Bu to the San! Busan! The 2nd largest city after Seoul. Going around was really easy, as Busan has their own subway system and other public transportation really excellent too. From YongDusan Tower ,BIFF Square,Jagalchi Market to Gwangalli Beach,we went!



In between Busan trip... managed to steal some times and went to Gyeongju! It was a short but fun trip! Bike around Gyeongju seeing the Silla Dynasty ancient monuments,felt like on a school field trip!:P From Daereungwon to Anopji Pond, even tried the Gyeongju's famous red bean bun too.


Took us about 2.5 hours from Busan to Seoul by KTX. I think we all slept like a tired baby on the journey.Meanwhile in Seoul, we're everywhere. From Namsan Tower to Namdaemun to Nami Island to everything in between,we did it. Stop by the Cheonggyecheon after a long walk was my favourite moment! The water is soooo coold despite summer's approaching. The trip was filled with joy & fun. Again,next year? Cherry Blossom?leggo!

My Highlight of the trip. :P
  • I met with Lee Jong Hyuk & his family at Namsan Tower. Got his autograph :D 
  • Bumped into my favorite dancer, Seo Ki Chul at Hongdae.Got couple of pics with him! He's soooo nice :D 
  • Met the talented producer Choice37, got his autograph and a pic. Also met one of my favorite producer,BIGTONE. I shook hand with him. Nice & great people!
  • Saw Dara unnie & YoungBae at YG HQ.. well oh well...where else I'd be found..
  • Met Lydia Paek & Marshal Bang at a Cafe in Hapjeong.kk Lydia is tooo cute.
  • Went to Teddy's Twosome Studio..saw Mina Kwon's artworks.Awesome!
  • Ahh, saw B1A4 at KBS & shook hand with one of the members (i dont hv any idea who's who),this is sooo random! what a memory.
  • Saw RyeoWok, Siwon,Yoo In Na & Shin Bo Ra at KBS too.
  • Went to the Cat Cafe!
  • Finally got a picture with one of the Kwon Twins, Dony & also dancer Park JungHeon. They're coming back from OOAK Thai.
  • My ultimate best highlight of the trip... walk side by side with SeungRi at Incheon Airport on the 9th June! Kyaaaa :D Noona is happy,maknaeyaa! Record a video & snap some pics. SeungRi is <3!

That's it!

    1. @Nur Aqilah : W'salam. Tq for your time :) We spend 2days 1night in Busan, (if u hv time you could do 3d 2 night for Busan), Gwangalli is best to see at night,there's a temple by the sea too though we didn't hv enough time to see last time. & despite our short time, we went to Gyeongju for a short-day trip, Gyeongju is a must see place too!
      We spent 3 days 2 night in Jeju, Jeju's quite big island, but some of the attractions are close to each other, so it won't be a problem. If you possessed an international driving license and wanting to try driving around Jeju, you should as well. Jeju coastal road are to die for.Gorgeous!! Check out KT Kumho for rented car, it's cheap & very easy. But if you're planning to have a smooth and easy trip, you can opt for tour provided, i think the price could be a bit high, around 100 000 per day,but u're guaranteed to get to those places,etc.. It's best to know some basic Korean for the trip bcuz the dialect used in Busan & Jeju are bit (VERY) different from Seoul's.
      Hahaha, getting lost is just part of travelling! Enjoy the unpredictable things & places that come your way! :D

    1. @Nurul Hasni : A'ahh..yes.i met him & his family ( wife,Junsu,Taksu)..no i didn't take any photo with him bcuz i saw his kids were happy and nobody really recognized them yet,so i bet if i took photo everyone will notice him and he might have to go back early. I just asked for autograph and had a lil chat with him,and pretend like meeting old friend,so they managed to enjoy great evening that day :)

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…

UiTM MACHANG CAMPUS

*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!! (^_~)
