korea trip day 6.

lol i just promised myself to finish my korea trip post in my day 5 post. sadly i didn’t! cuz we just got fast connection internet installed at home weeeeeehooooo! so my k-drama addiction is back. i keep on downloading/streaming latest k-drama. spent my night after work & weekend for k-dramas #likeaboss now haha. so now i’m bored already. let’s finish this day 6 post. :p

so for day 6, everyone has their own plan. me & anne went to apgujeong to fulfill our /kpop/ wish again haha. it’s the time to visit JYPE & SME! mansaeeeee. oh and BNS too cuz anne like block b haha.

1) apgujeong/cheongdam (SME & JYPE)

woke up a bit late, ard 7am since it’s a free-activities day lol. then we took subway to apgujeong station and went to exit #2 (as per TIPS we got from internet lol). our first destination is SME, since it’s just located along the main apgujeong road. but it’s quite far from the station, thus it’s impossible for me to walk my ass off there. maybe not for anne haha. so we went to exit #2 and approach this 1 cab.

me: SM entotaemen juseyo~
ahjussi: mwo?
me: *show him the address i’ve wrote on a piece of paper*
ahjussi: *took his glasses and read but looks confuse. then he started type the address on his gps thing. but results shows 0*
ahjussi: erm *gives pen and asked me to write the address again (in hangul? idek lol)*
me: *write the address in hangul* OTL OTL OTL
ahjussi: *type the address (hangul) on his gps thing. still no results shown*

then he started the engine and drive along the main road. i know the building is just a bit in front but suddenly he turned left! omg ahjussi waylt. then he stopped nearby and started playing ard with his gps thing again. then i was like OTL we better walk then. and asked him to just drop us at the main road. then we just walked abt 10 mins. and tadaaahh, SME building was in front of us. haha.

in front of SME!

the next destination is JYPE! oo yeah i like this one. cuz it’s my oppars company haha. i can predict which junction we should go from the main road, thanks to google maps. after about 15 mins walked past the junction, we saw JYPE sign already. oo yeaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaahhh. finally my dreams has come true! sobs cries ;_______; ofc usually fans will go to the dunkin donut in front of this JYPE building instead of just stand up in front of it haha. so we went to dunkin donut, warm up ourselves, bought coffees & donuts. and i even passed my birthday gift & card for junho bb to the dunkin donut’s cashier eonni. she laughed a bit when looking at my present haha hdu. idek how she’s going to pass it to junho or even JYPE stuff or whatsoever. but at least i did it. it’s better than doing nothing is it. lol. but i really do hope she already passed it and he already receive it. kkk.

in front of JYPE! finally my dream has come trueee sobs :’)

how to go to SME:

-get off at apgujeong station (exit #2)
-walk past the main road about.. idek how long LOL till u see the SME building
-or u might wanna take a cab and show the ajussi your address. good luck! kkk
-address: SNE, 413-80, Apgujeong 2-dong, Gangnam-gu, Seoul

how to go to JYPE:

-get off at apgujeong station (exit #2)
-walk past the main road till u see SME building. walk again till u see a really big junction
-turn left at the small junction right before the big junction
-walk about 5 minutes til u see JYPE building on your left and dunkin donut on your right
-address: JYPE, 123-50, Cheongdam-dong, Gangnam-gu, Seoul

2) yeoksam (BNS)

heh this is the most challenging one. i’m not really into block b so i don’t really know about this entertainment company (brand new stardom) compared to anne. cuz she’s the one who like them. kkk. so she did all those research about how to go to this place. the only thing i knw is it’s located next to a church. so we took subway to yeoksam station and walked past this gangnam road (as per the TIPS /again/ lol). and i saw a church. but i didn’t expect the BNS building gonna be around this area cuz from google map it looks a bit far from the station. so we walked again and keep on looking at the number for each building & shop. cuz we have the address already – it’s #683. so we walked again and again til we reach #650 ++. but we was like it’s quite far already how come we haven’t reach 683 yet?? and we keep on mumbling about how tired and hungry and everything. then suddenly..

boy: bisa saya bantu? (may i help you?)
we: eh? haa? *blur*
boy: mari saya lihat alamatnya~ (let me see the address~)
we: ahaha thanks!
boy: oh tempat ini sudah lepas di belakang. nombor yg di bangunan ini format yg baru. di alamat ini format yg lama. x mngapa saya bisa bawa kamu kesana~ (oh you’ve missed this place. the number on those building is the new format. the number on this address is the old one. nevermind i can bring you there~)
we: oh kamu indonesia? kamu nampak mcm org korea! kkk (oh are u indonesian? u look like korean! kkk)
boy: oh saya memang orang korea~ tapi belajar di indonesia di SMA~ (oh i’m korean~ but i’ve studied in high school at indonesia~)
we: hahah! ok ok

lol it was awkward tbh haha his indonesian is really good. at first we thought he’s an indonesian-korean mix or something. but no. he was a korean but his father worked in indonesia so his family stayed there for few years. now he’s back to korea. he’s a daehaksaeng (uni student) now lol. so anak hekan! but he’s quite cute tbh lol. then he brought us (we even took a bus cuz it was really far not gonna lie). and we stopped in front of the church i’ve seen before. like wthhhh. it was too near to the station!! why we have to walk about 45 minutes to.. idek where we’re heading to /kills self. then we reached BNS and anne dropped her presents to the security ahjussi coz nobody was in the office rn coz it’s weekend. and said byebye to the cute boy haha. should’ve asked for his twitter/me2day sobs.

ugh finally we found this Seolleung Building OTL.

how to go to BNS:

-get off at seonrong station (exit #7)
-walk past the main road about 10 minutes til u see a church on your left. the building is just next to the church
-address: B101, Seolleung Bldg, 683-26, Yeoksam 1-dong, Gangnam-gu, Seoul

3) insadong

we parted ways after that. cuz i was a bit tired but anne wanna go to itaewon & buy 45362727 handbags again. so i took subway back to our guesthouse. but i went to insadong station first cuz i wanna buy handbags too! it’s just that i don’t have much energy left to go that far (to itaewon) lol. so i went to the same shop (i’ve wrote about it in my day 1 post lol) and bought 4 handbags for 40,000 won (10,000 won each)! haha cheap isn’t it? 1 handbag for my mom, 1 handbag for my sister & 2 sling bags for myself. oo yeah.

the shop where i bought those bags!

insadong again~

then i went back to our guesthouse and sleep for 2 hours before anne crashed in and wake me up and show off those 45637829478 bags she bought at itaewon lol. then she went out again to go to ewha university (edae). alone. coz i’m still tired and i wanna sleep lol wailt.

4) hongdae (hongik university)

then i woke up ard 6.30pm and i’m ready for hongdae! so me & anne promised to meet at hongdae station at 7pm. well hongdae is very happening at night. there are so many clubs, bars, coffeeshops etc. basically hongdae stands for hongik university, thus obviously explains why there were so many youngsters there lol. my intention was actually to go to luxury noraebang, the famous karaoke place that 2PM went in wild bunny episodes & jaeson-pilsuk (woo-IU) went in one of dream high episodes. but since only me & anne were into kpop, and i dont really think anne wanna go there (lol), it won’t be fun then sobs. maybe next time :\

then we wander around hongdae and omg there were so many ppl! like so so many u cant ever imagined. i dont really get what are these ppl doing there actually. just walk and walk then do what? haha. then papp! suddenly we stumbled upon mr pizza! hahahaha. like ok this is the timeeeeeee. let’s go in! /besides the fact that we were so hungry to death/. well mr pizza is.. so full with oppars haha. coz 2PM is their latest endorser so ofc their faces are everywhereee. ofc i was so essaited and happy lol. we ordered 1 regular lobster pizza (the one that they endorsed ofc lmao).. which costs 26000 won ~ rm75!! oh wow this is like the most expensive pizza i ever ate lmao u can get 3 large pizza from domino’s or pizzahut for that cost at malaysia ok. but domino’s got no oppars’ face in their outlets lol :p well practically i paid 70% of the total cost coz i’m the one who wanted to go to mr pija so much lol ok fine. anything for u oppars! keukeu. btw the pizza is so naiseu sobs cries i wanna eat it again =.=

lobsetar pija! omnomnom!

it was 10pm. they wanna close the shop already.

i even steal this poster that they put at the entrance lmao.

haayy khunnie boi~~~ kkk.

the take-away box is so naiseuuu!

after finished stuffing ourselves with those yummy lobster pizza, we wandered around hongdae again. and saw 2 street performers, a band & a solo singer. that guy /who looks like kim soohyun imo lol/ sang i’m yours while playing his guitar. oh i love this kind of nightlife! if only we came at the right time~ when jinwoon filmed his scene at hongdae for dream high 2 :/ sobs lol.

street band.

street singer.

how to go to hongdae:

-get off at hongdae station

4) edae (ewha university)

our last destination is edae. well anne went to edae already when i was still asleep happily at guesthouse lol. but i insisted to go again since this is our 2nd last day at korea already and i dont have much time left! so we went to edae but sadly most of the shops has closed already! =.= so we just go to whatever shops that were still open like holika holika, face shop etc. bought quite many face masks (10 for 10,000 won), hand cream, lipbalm etc from these shops haha #happy. if you like cn blue, holika holika is a must-place-to-visit cuz they are their endorser lol.

holika holika! haaayy yonghwa! kkk.

lmaooo.

how to go to edae:

-get off at ewha university station

korea trip day 3.

haha this is one of my favorite days in korea. woke up quite early coz we gonna head to nami island which is located a bit far from seoul (1 hour++ train ride). but the boys!! they woke up late and ruined the initial plan which is to go there early (so we can go back early). hzzz. so guys, punctuality should be the main element in any trips. 🙂

1) nami island

there are 2 options to go to nami island. you can either take a bus or subway. well ofc we took subway. this it could be a bit tricky if you’re not a train person (transferring lines, change lrt etc :p). but it’s not that hard either. just make sure to be alert on the announcement (on which station you have to get off). our journey was like euljiro il-ga –> wangsimni –> mangu –> gapyeong. yes transferring lines for 3 times hzzz. from mangu to gapyeong, it’s actually not subway. it’s a train. like ktm? which is an on-the-ground-train. so you’ll have the chance to experience the cold weather hhahaha. it’s so freaking cold while waiting for the train for almost.. idk maybe an hour at mangu station. oh we met a nice ahjussi at this station. at first we thought he’s a japanese (coz of his native accent maybe? lol idk) then paru tried to impress everyone by speaking in his basic japanese (like konichiwa or something) bahahahaha. and the ahjussi went “ha? no! no! i’m korean! lmao that was funny kkk.

yani was hiding inside this convenience store coz it’s so damn freaking effin cold outside lol.

waiting for the train (기차) at mangu station in a super freaking effin cold weather haha.

and finally we reached gapyeong station around 12pm. it was sunny, but still cold! then we took 2 cabs to go to nami jetty. this 5 minutes cab ride costs around 2500 won per cab (they use meter so.. it depends). then we need to buy the entrance ticket at the counter (including the ferry fares). we met a group of malaysian tourists in the ferry lol. but they have a tour guide! (a malaysian student who studied in korea). so we were like a bit proud of ourselves for not using any tour guides! :p lol. well nami island was really a beautiful place and it should be a-must-go-place in your itinerary. maybe it could be boring for ppl who doesn’t appreciate beautiful sceneries lol. but i still appreciate this place coz of the fact that this is a filming location for winter sonata. and winter sonata is the first korean drama i ever watched. lol.

a frozen lake!

my fail attempt to do a ‘snowing’ post~ lol.

it means ‘happy new year at nami island’ lol. do you really love malaysia, nami island?

warming up ourselves~

we had our lunch at drama cafe (yeonga jiga). so we bought dosirak (korean lunch box) that costs 4000 won. but of course the boys won’t eat any korean foods haha. they brought maggi in cup & bread omg for god’s sake! how come ppl can still eat malaysian foods at korea lol idgi.

the cafe sign.

it has a halal certification from korean muslim federation halal committee.

my 4000 won dosirak~ and banana uyu too (bought at the convenience store at mangu earlier) omnomnom!

you have to shake the box hardly! lol.

after lunch, we continue our journey to walk around nami and take picturesss! haha. the island is quite big actually OTL. then we went back around 3pm after finished walking around this island.

a must-take-photo lol.

with jun sang & yoo jin~ lol.

uploading coz i like this pic haha.

erol and his amused face watching …….. idek lmao.

they do sell hotteok here for 1000 won only! nyumm.

on the ferry~ jom balik!

how to go to nami island:
-get off at gapyeong station
-take a cab to nami jetty = +- 2500 won per cab
-entrance fee = 8000 won

2) kona beans

me & anne’s next destination is apgujeong coz she wanna meet her friend, natasha (who is also from malaysia) there. so our plan is to go wherever nat gonna take us lol. she’s quite familiar with this area (heard that she went here almost every night! lol). we went to everysing first (didn’t know that everysing has 2 branches kkk) and i bought another donghae’s merchandise (postcards/photocards or something). and then.. kona beans !! well in case if you didn’t know wth is this kona beans, it’s actually a coffee shop owned by suju’s leeteuk-sungmin-kyuhun mommas *not all kona beans actually, just this one branch at apgujeong hehe*. if you’re an elf, this place should be in your itinerary (other than handel & gretel – yesung’s parents cafe). or else, you might consider to resign from being an elf then. loljk. i’m not an elf but i really wanna go here coz.. like come on, you’re in korea but didn’t go to kona beans? /kills self. ok that’s exaggerating lol but tbh it’s a must-go place ok.

ofc we didn’t expect to meet any suju boys there (but sometimes they’ll go there and help around too). my only objective is to meet sungjin (sungmin’s brother). it should be good enough! kekeke. so yeah we met him there (coz he’s working there) and served our coffees hehe. oh and cho ara, kyuhyun’s noona too. and their ommas. and suddenly sungjin wear his jacket and looked like he’s going somewhere. and we decided to take a pic with him before he went out. thanks to nat’s father for taking the pic for us. oh btw she dragged her family (mom, dad & brother) along to kona beans too haha this family is so effin cute idek.

with sungjin! tehehehe. (cr: nat’s camera lol)

sungmin’s mom~

i dont even remember what did i order. but i do remember that it costs 5300 won lol.

i look like a …………. idek /hates this pic forever/

how to go to kona beans:

-get off at apgujeong station (exit #2)
-walk along the main road. make sure u see hana bank & papa john’s
-walk again til u see a cross junction. you have to cross the road and walk past s-oil gas station
-walk again til u see shinhan bank. then turn right at the small junction
-you will see angel-in-us coffee. kona beans is located right in front of it

excuse my lame paint editing skill lmaooo.

sorry but i don’t really remember how to go to everysing. but it’s somewhere near kona beans. then we went back home and i was so effin tired. we slept early that night coz we gonna have another long day tomorrow… which is..

.. pls wait for my day 4 post lol.
