Back from Korea!! Went to Jeju Island, Seoul, Nami Island + Petite France and the Korean Demilitarized Zone (DMZ). It was autumn there so the scenery and weather was perfect. Thankful for my shiny new iPhone that helped me take so many pretty pictures 😛
I didn’t shop as much as I usually do because they were mostly selling winter wear and cosmetics, both of which I have no use for. But no worries because shopping is not a seasonal thing and I can do it even from home, thanks to Zalora. Like its Cotton On Body range… I don’t even have to get my ass to the physical store, ha!
Food was great but honestly after travelling to so many places, I still love our local fare best. Which is why the moment I landed at Changi Airport, I went to Kopitiam to eat this:
Can you believe this is the queue for the drinks stall at 4pm??? It goes all the way behind… Had to queue equally long for both my mini wok noodles and teh peng. But cravings satisfied so I’m not complaining.
Anyway, that was on Friday. Not sure where my Saturday went (sleeping?)… Had brunch with mi familia at Red Star Dim Sum Restaurant on Sunday and stuffed myself silly.
Very interesting because the waitresses go around pushing carts of food instead of you ordering from a menu and waiting for the food to be served. So you just take whatever you want and the staff will jot it down on your bill each time.
We ordered even more after these ~.~ Including a plate of roast duck (not pictured). Everything was so yummy though!! I wish I had more stomach space. Total bill came up to $157 for 4 of us which I think is reasonable.
This paper wrapped chicken (纸包鸡) is heaven.
Mango pudding drenched in coconut milk. Think I have eaten back all the calories I burned while hiking in Jeju. What I would give to be back there and climbing mountains…
Btw, moved all my depressing posts to a separate blog where I can write whatever I want instead. Honestly? Not feeling so great. But I (have to) get through each day anyway…
