I want to continue 'reviewing' about my short visit to Korea last two weeks.
Alhamdulillah...hubby and me accomplished another place in the world atlas. That has been his life mission I guess. And I am happy to accompany him doing so:)
So, Seoul huh..who's idea was that?
You know for whoever who had been living in Japan for quite a long time, of course la he had been in Seoul.
So, this time around the idea was from me. Ngahaha..
I had a hard time convincing him. When he finally agreed, again..last minute everything. Nasib baik Seoul dekat. On the day, both of us wake up with only me bersemangat. Nasib baik lagi..we are going to Korea girls!I packed very very light. When the time hubby wanted to zip up our luggage...he was surprised because he could not find my baju.hahaha..He thought I forgot or dumb for thinking that we are going there just for overnight. Lol lol XD. You know why right..tell me who could not read my subtext?:| oh, and I did not even packed my make up:p
We arrived in the heart of Seoul around 5pm. What can I say, Seoul station isn't as congested like Shibuya/Shinjuku station. I'm being serious!
You know betapa tak bersemangatnya kami..when we arrived at the Seoul station, we didn't even had clue to where is the location of our hotel, and let alone how to get there!>,<
Still, we were still very calm. Tak excited langsung T_T Anyway, we have started seeing many Malaysians since the airport. wow..Malaysians really love Seoul I guess:)
Back to the hotel story, all I know the hotel name has the word 'Sinchon'. So, we head straight to the Sinchon station yang terletak sebelah Hongik University yang sangat famous among blogger yang review Seoul. Wokeh, now we are at Sinchon station. Again, we didn't know where to go, which exit.
All we can remember was there's 7E on the way to the hotel. We find the map, and nasib baik ada tunjuk 7E. We finally found the hotel. Tak sesat @.@ terer kan?despite tak bersemangatnye kami :'D
Why didn't I asked information dekat station?
1. Memang tak ada orang tunggu dekat station, unlike what you see in Japan. In which, kalau tiket anda rosak, memang tak ada siapa nak entertain anda di tempat kejadian pon..sengal..(I kena sekali).Only sometimes, ada mcm volunteer (kot) berdiri dekat luar ticket slot which I think mainly for security purposes sebab di Seoul pun you see ramai yang tak beli tiket juga.
2. We tried asking people around, and they did not understand a word in english. even "university". So, what is university in korean?o.O
Another story when we wanted to check-in for hotel. Disaster.
For those who would like to visit Seoul later. Janganlah anda sekali sekala berkata, "gune kredit kad je..rugi la tukar duit." hell no in Seoul. Very few kedai je yang accept kredit card. Yang of course la yang proper shopping mall in which..why do we want to go there. baik dok jepun je sudey..
We thought developed country are alike kan..I think Seoul is one of the acception la..sudahnye..kami isytihar hutang kat hotel tu.lol XD. And I tell you, it took us about 30 minutes just to tell them we would like to pay! Gosh gosh..its not like ayam bercakap dengan itik dah..ni orang dari planet earth nak cakap dengan planet yang belum lagi diidentify nama. lol XD But again, maybe we stayed dekat hotel yang tak famous sangat..so, they did not provide somebody who can speak english. Just maybe:)
We rest, solat semua until finally we felt hungry and guilty of not be able to pay. haha..so, we have to find the money changer. Since my husband was all ignorant towards our visit ni, I was the one who decides on the itinerary. So, give it all to me, I immediately decided Myeong-Dong as the first place to visit!hihi
To Myeong-Dong, my hope towards this place was like menara Burj Khalifa tu. So high until I did not pack anything. ahaha..So, I said to hubby..(with face like puss in boot) "baju takde.kene beli jugak."* Try that girls, it works :") dengan syarat..lokasi harusla dah smpai dekat cashier :'D*
So, how was Myeong-Dong?
Personally I think this place is exactly like Petaling Street. Not exactly kot..It's like Petaling Street located by the roadsides of the Bukit Bintang gitu. But hubby did not like/want me to shop from the hawker stalls. One, because they are so scary and garang some more. So, I shop only from the proper kedai around Myeong-Dong. I tried to avoid kedai macam Forever 21, HnM macam tu where I can find them in Japan. But God knows how hard I refrained myself. I ended up entering and exiting them. Yes, there's so many of them and there were all on crazy sales. My husband was not being supportive towards my mission. He kept poisoning me to just go into F21, buy 2,3 and go home. He doesn't trust Korean kedai T_T or more to dislike it? Coz he sees the girls there are wearing about the same baju.lol lol XD.
Let's see Myeong-Dong at night:)
When we visit places, we will try to do as many things as possible just to feel the place more. That's for sure include the food. Most of the time, we eat in Myeong-Dong. That's simply because, we were there everyday!>,< I don't know how it happened, but, yeah..we were there everyday. Lol XD. So, we got familiar with the place and the eateries around. lol XD.
|Inilah Myeong-Dong...my favorite place in Seoul.ngahaha|
Since my mission to penuhkan bag dengan baju baru made in korea tak mendapat sokongan..and I, myself was a bit kecewa on quality wise, I shifted my mission to..
Okla, blogspot ni sengal plak.
Till then, tata.
