Yeay another blogpost for you all who are interested about my Korean trip endless rambling.
We're moving on from the most exhausted day ever which is the first day of my Korea trip.
Well as you know most of airline that offers flight to Korea have a late flying schedule which leaves me to arrive the next day.... at 7 AM! Crazy huh this little thing called travel bug which has successfully win over my precious sleeping time.
So in day 2, my initial plan was to hang out all day with my friends who's in Korea but however since it's Friday they can't catch me up during the day but to wait until 6 pm. Fair enough, so me and Shanka decided to GO AT LOTTE WORLD! wutt wutt. Me personally love love all kinds of rides, it's just one thing that piss me off which is queueing. Let me repeat *QUEUEING FOR RIDES IN A FOREIGN COUNTRY THAT YOU DON'T HELL NOT KNOW WHAT ARE THEY TALKING ABOUT*. At first, I was quite cynical about this particular Korean Disney land since it is easy to get the ticket and plus it looks like a miniature Timezone (arcade place in Jakarta) from outside. Like, as I've been to many theme park, I find this quite fishy for some reason. Once I entered the gate, I quickly assume that the park was oh so quite and spacious. My dream crushed in a minute the moment my eyes laid on the most generic rides ever, which is the ships that goes up to 180 degree (I can't describe it well honestly). I said, ok pretty common and when I have this idea to actually ride it. I look at the queue and OMFGGSHSHSSJJ !! I saw a sea full of bb cream and liptinted people queuing up for this lame ride! (which however in the end I still ride it). I've been fooled all along! this the thing that can't be undone thus I atone my sin by queueing up for every god damn rides for up to 1.5 hour. Legs cramp? most definitely!
My little advice if you are really into mingling with the people of dobokki while riding a fun rides is that, DO NOT COME AFTER 9 AM, LET ME REPEAT DO NOT. Cause this very high tech Lotte world offers a magic pass for up to three times so you could easily jump out from the queue on the designated time (more like the available time). Pretty convenient, however since they have a limited slot, first come first serve!

Time has finally indicate 4:50ish pm in the evening. We rushed out from the Korean Disney Land to our next meeting place which is Hong Dae. Yes, I know I've been there but I don't want to miss out eating a Korean BBQ that has T.O.P big bang holding a beer huge banner sticking right in front of the restaurant am I?
My stomach has fully satisfied so my Korean friend decided to take us out for a stroll nearby (by means nearby, is proximately like more than 3 kilo's journey). As i thought it's good for flexing them stiff calves and also digesting system so I agree on that plus she said that she's about to reward me with Bing Soo (Korean snow ice dessert) by the end of journey and I said to her "I'll bless you a double eyelids".
One Km has took my breath away, we decided to stop by the famous Kinako ice cream dessert place that has recently open. Please do not bombarded me with a question on where the heck is that. I don't know. My mind has been Bing Soo orientated since the begging of the stroll.
However, this is the picture of the ice cream.
god damn it's freezing, i cringe
The notorious Gangster Dobokki, odd name for a Dobokki eh
We continue back on our journey, took a few picture but since Shanka eyes were almost dead at that wee hour. I stop nudging her. Minutes after minutes finally the designated Bing Soo place has closed YES IT'S CLOSE! *cry in korean* and we're back to the main road where we get our Kinako ice cream but this time it's the cafe in the opposite direction. i didn't take much picture in that cafe since it's name was ridiculously cheesy "Flower cafe". As you expected that place has an overwhelming smells of flowers (obvs) and syrup smells. Tho, honestly it's a lovely place for a first date. Chat after chat, we finally end our day at around 11 pm. Head to shower, bed and ready for the next day.
