KOREA TRIP (17/11/2011 - 22/11/2011): DAY 1

this is like overdue but i still need to blog about it. since i'm kinda lazy to write a long entry, so i'm gonna blog by places that i visited ;)

1. Incheon Airport
Well, of coz the moment you arrived in Seoul, Incheon Airport will be the first location in your trip. Just like other airports in the world, it just another airport but their WiFi was awesome to the max. The first thing me & my friends did were checking our handphone whether the roaming works... Luckily, my roaming works well ^^

from maxis to olleh
Since we reached early morning, 6.30am, so the first thing we did in Incheon was having breakfast. We decided to have our breakfast at a coffee shop at the airport but i can't remember the coffee shop's name... ihiks.

2. Hey Backpackers 1 & 2, Hongdae
Hahaha... the experience when we had to find our guesthouse was funny. We didn't have problem to get to Hongdae from airport. Once we reached Hongik University Station, we have to walk 10 minutes to get to our guesthouse.

FYI, Hey Backpackers have 2 guesthouses: 1 & 2 which located like 2 minutes away with each other. I remembered when i booked Hey Backpackers 1 & we didn't have problem to find it but when we reached HB1, no one were there to open the doors for us. Then this one kind ahjussi (he owns an electrical shop next to HB1) told us to go to HB2 instead to find the owner. So, with his minimal English, he explained to us the direction to HB2 and it was me & Lumos mission to find HB2, while Fatima & Mai waited for us in front of HB1. Since we can't really understood the direction well, both of us ended up wandering the whole Hongdae for more than 45 minutes. We did asked direction from the Watson's people, 7-eleven ahjussi & even a police, but none of them gave us a correct direction. LOL! it was kinda frustrating.

Then, when we were on our way to HB1, dang! We found HB2 like 2 minutes away from HB1... Well, it was quite a fun experience for us...

in front of Hey Backpackers 2!
 3. Pavarotti, Hongdae
After settling down with the guesthouse, it was already noon, so, we gotta eat. We went to a pasta restaurant, Pavarotti. I'm not a fan of pasta, so, i decided to order a Shrimp Salad.

Nyum! Nyum!
4. Namsan Tower
From Myeongdong Station, we decided to walk which just to realise after that we have to climb up the hill. The hill was freaking steep, NO JOKE!
Well, Namsan Tower is famous with their Love Locks. It was kinda amusing seeing those locks since we don't have it in Malaysia. We can see the view of Seoul City from the tower but since it was like 3pm - 4pm, we can't see the beautiful night of the Seoul City.

till death tear us apart
5. Myeongdong
Since Namsan Tower & Myeongdong are nearby, so, we headed to Myeongdong Market. It is like KL's Petaling Street just it was more fun than PS. Of coz i was more excited when we found Evisu & Look Optical's outlet (if you are a 2PM's fan like me, you'll know why).

I didn't buy anything (yet), except 2PM's 2nd single, Time For Change at the Myeongdong Subway Station.

1st day at Myeongdong, this is the only thing that i bought :p
I'll end my 1st entry here. My entry kinda boring aite? I'll have a special post to paste interesting pictures during my trip k. I'll post my 2nd entry a.k.a 2nd day soon. It will be more interesting especially if you are a JYP Nation's fan ^^
