My heart My Seoul

No Comments »

I dislike the thought of whenever I start writing back any latest post it begins with me saying that I am long gone or hiatus. I humbly apologise for the commotion, things has not been so great about my life so far it forces me to constantly being a bitch about it and lord I don't want to rumble it upon my blog posts. 
I went to South Korea for a week, Seoul to be exact (yes, again) for the second time, turns out Seoul has touched a special spot in my heart that I need to re-visit it in order to satisfy my longing for an adventure in there. However, was a mistake to bring my siblings to go there. They do not like Seoul, well some of them. First reason maybe I shop too much that my brother has to wait outside shivering in cold, secondly my sister does not like walking AT ALL demand to be at the taxi all times and lastly, they fight a lot through out the journey. 

Altho I still am enjoying the trip but hey, peace comes first and shopping comes second right? 

Here's a few snap that I took in Seoul, by means a few well you know me :p


Before our flight, excuse my bare face


We decided to stay at a condo type of hotel, not too bad actually it was decent experience overall. Our hotel called "The Oriens" also not too far from the buzzling Myeong-Dong district. 


Found this very cool spot to shop to at A.Land Myeongdong, it's a clothing store similar to Urban Outfitters both price wise and theme. Did not manage to buy a single piece from here because they're running out of sizes. Yeay me. Actually, I could find my clothing size easily since they run it huge but when it comes to streetwear label. Boy, an ants could not even fit in that. My pain does not end at the incapability of me buying clothes, shoes too. Yeay me. I bought men's shoes all the time when I was in Seoul, if your feet larger than 39 Europe, boy bye just wrap your leg with a bandage. 


Day two my beloved tour guide, Dea. Took me to see this humble small alley home of cafes. You name it! they have it all. Whether you want to chill and have a coffee, they have it! or even if you cannot miss your manga reading session, you could step inside this net cafe while eating ramen with cold beer.


This container city captivated me, my first time ever landed in the famous CommonGround shopping lot in Seoul. To be exact it was near Gang-nam district where all the rich spend their salary here. You could find a lot of funky clothes with a bit of quality in here. Price wise? don't expect it to be cheap. 


Found this little gem while at the Bukchon Hanok Village, YUMMIEST K FOOD EVER 


Handmade perfume


This is the day where I get to wear Hanbok for the very first time, strolling around the Gyeongbok Gung Palace like nobody business wearing Balenciaga shoes and all. Fun experience but bare in mind that the palace is under some construction so you won't get to see the full experience like I did last time. Secondly I did shop at Dongdaemun district, where usually tourists buy their lot of clothes in there. You can bargain too while you're at Hello Apm mall, AmPm mall and lots more. 


BEST BBQ EVER located in the back of Hong-Dae district (tbh I did not know what its called but I do know exactly where it is), you know it when they have the word free then it's should be good.


A chicken restaurant owned by some K-Model, god knows who the hell is he.


Zapangi at Mangwon.


I droll on the floor while indulging the interior beauty this shop located in Garosugil has, I even took my time to do the infamous toilet selfie too.


Itaewon at night. Best district if you love food and drinks. 


Hwayugi (Korean odyssey) shooting location! the place where Son O Gong returning, Samjang red umbrella T_____T. 


Legend of the blue sea rooftop shooting location! (why the heck do I even bother coming here) Tbh
it's actually not bad at all, since the place is free to enter (I love free!) also the view is spectacular from above. Just beware the journey you have to go to visit this, get your sneakers ready.


Picnic at Hangang River! how fun!


Lastly, still my obsession with Lee Seung Gi reached me to his hand imprinted on the star avenue road. The closest thing I could get to be near him *sigh*. 

That's it for my trip ! Hope you guys enjoy my review! do ask me more about my Korean trip through comment!



It's Japan Bitch, Loosen up pt.KYOTO

4 Comments »

I too generous, sharing my ultimate itinerary to you peeps who keen on a little bit of historical side but more on spending your dime on unnecessary goods. 

Grateful to be on a trip again with dearest Shanka and Abelini, whom I've travelled with on my previous dope vacation (I've been around the world with them both) OF COURSE they are more than eligible to be my travel partner especially when it comes to grant weird requests of mine. 

So here I am ended up in Kyoto and Tokyo for 7 days straight exploring the unknown sides of Japan. 


Starting in Kyoto,


I've been always fascinated by the idea of entertainment, especially the old form of entertainment  in Japan such as Geisha. The go to list in Kyoto is absolutely GION, the most exclusive and well-known Geisha districts in all of Japan. To quench my thirst of being able to see Geisha daily, we decided to hook ourselves with an accommodation located in the heart of Gion. 

Spooky, I tell ya. The street was very quiet unlike the Kyoto upper town, the shops were closing early compare to the uptown making the street resemblance to one of walking dead scene. Was alright tho, sometimes we do hear drunk business man lullaby so wasn't all creepy. 

The first thing we visit in Kyoto was Kiyomizu Dera, I know this temple from manga which I read before. So the story plot was all of them had this field trip to Kiyomizu Dera temple and their first wish list was to drink the water fountain. That's it! i thought, I'm gonna do it too!

The sun almost set, we rush to the top of the temple just to see a really breathtaking view of one of the pagoda. My choice of time was very upsetting since we came quite late and had to pay around 400 Yen per person just to enjoy the temple area. 

Worth it afterall! 10/10 would be back again but will skip the hiking process next time.


the meal that I got on my way to Kyoto from Haneda airport. 


My two gals and oh look a Maiko!


BEST INARI SUSHI EVER

 

 few OOTD that I took, honestly the temple was awesome do not focus on me. 

The second day in Kyoto was raining the whole day, god grief I was upset. Why the day we decided to bind ourselves with Kimono we must struggle twice the hard. Speaking of Kimono, I never thought in my life that it's so hard to be a normal human girl in Kimono. You got to turn yourself into a super feminine women who never raise her leg and arms in order to maintain your clothes or else the clothes will rebel against you a.k.a it will disassembled. 

The place where we rent our Kimono called @Kyo_Sakura (check out their Insta yo! you'll get discount or free stuff if you follow them) and the dresser was really kind plus patience to every piece of our grunting. I choose black because it's just very me and creating a nice contrast to the famous thousand gates in the world "Fushimi-Inari" temple. 


Best Parfait ever!


The Halal dried ramen, the taste was alright but THE GRAND PRIX KARAGE COMPETITION WINNER IS DA BOMB!!!

WHY CAN'T I BE FREE

Finally a mini breathtaking holiday occurs in my life, My skin were snatched and mad about how stressful I am these past few months. 

This time accompanied by these super famous (I mean it they have 10k ++ followers on Instagram!) influencers fella's of mine, Chianty @chiantygunawan and Lulut @lulut_m exploring the world that I am no longer interested in exploring it which is the world of KUALA LUMPUR. 


YES

Some of you may know that I've done all the nooks and cranny of weird/bad things in KL, but this time I'm terribly glad to share it with them. Lulut is KL virgin so she was actually pretty excited to feel the majestic night life KL can offer, whereas Chianty came to KL completely as a normal tourist with all the good manners.

btw, I lost my iPhone for god sake! KL! you let me down big time!!! my dad told me don't go to deep on the KL euphoria, but what can I say? I'm DROWN in it BATHE in it. 

 So first day we don't do much stuff, I nearly blackout in the middle of the hectic brunch place called "Breakfast Thieves" since turns out I dehydrated like a lot.. never before I feel the need to drink water as for this. Got few pictures snaps and done. 

Basically the trip was about me and my girls having our best quality time that majorly occurs at night HA! well we did a "little" shopping but I wasted all my allowance to buy a god damn iPhone. 


I like to try on Korean inspired makeup these days let me know what you think!
