Seoul : Part 5 (Everland)


20/03/2017 (Day 5)


I really have not much to write...
It just, a day in Everland, and it was so much fun!

How we get there
Despite of a few options we had, we choosed to go there by bus...
First, we took bus no.4 from Itaewon to Gangnam, and then bus no.5002 to Everland (from Gangnam)...

The bus will finally drop us at the Everland parking lot,and we'll have to wait for shuttle bus to take us to the entrance of Everland...


Pose dekat Gangnam, jangan cakap oppa tak payung...

And we finally reached Everland... such a magical place... 
As usual, theme park kinda day... Full of rides, and shows...
I had fun, but tak puas lagi, the place is so huge with such a little time...
I will come back, with a few more kids, i guess :pp

My parents yang terpaksa layankan our wants...

19/03/2017 (Day 4)


An #OOTD pose on our 4th day...


It's our fourth day already, and i can feel the vibe of going back already :(
Lol... emotional tourist... 

And today, is a very boring day for me! Our itenerary said, we are goin' to visit the World Cup Stadium & the War Memorial.
I wish i were the one who made the itinerary...


Seoul World Cup Stadium

The admission fee was 1000won per person.
It just a stadium, except that they hosted the World Cup once upon a time...
Only my husband & adik explore the whole place... I only stop and took the picture at the certain places...

And there are a museum there, where, adik & izzat je yang masuk jugak...
Admission fees for the museum were 10,000 won per person.

Seoul : Part 3 (Nami Island, Namdaemun Market, Asian Cuisine Restaurant, Makan Halal Restaurant))

Ok i think i should continue with the Seoul trip post now...
Eventhough i'm hating my previous post cause the wording was small and unadjustable, i've been adjusting them for days! 
Nevermind...


18/03/2017 (Day 3)

Nami Island

A trip to Seoul wouldn't be complete without visiting this beautiful Nami Island...

Honestly speaking, this is the place i've been so eager to visit (besides pasar malam kat Myeongdong), I'm not a korean drama fan, or kpop fan, or winter sonata fan... But i've been reading about this beautiful and enchanting island, that's why i'm so excited...

How we got there :
1. For Nami, we already bought the tickets from this site
https://namisum.com/
It includes bus fares (return) and tickets to Nami Island.

2. The bus will pick us up at 9.30am at a bus stop in front of Namdaemun Market.

3. So from Itaewon, we took the subway to Yongsan Gu station which will direct us to Namdaemun Market...

We took quite a while looking for the bus stop & asking here and there. Lucky that the bus driver is waiting for us even it had past 930am. The bus tickets comes with seat numbers. So it easier to detect which seats were still no occupied and it no harm to wait for a few minutes considering the tourists might got lost, like us...

It took around one hour and half to reach there...


Arriving Nami Island

Upon arriving, we saw so many Malaysian, too many, almost half of the crowd...
It not quite cold that day. Boleh la... But of course still need to wear our jackets...

After done with fulfilling nature calls, we line up to get into the ferry... 
Rifqi was asleep, so, my parents and Rifqi sat inside the ferry while my husband, my brother and i enjoying the view outside... ;)

Ber-romantika... biasalah, newlywed #eh

Seoul : Part 2 (Kervan Turkish Bakery, Seoul Central Mosque, Namsan Tower, Myeongdong)



17/03/2017 (Day 2)

Itaewon


No specific plan in the morning…

So after we had our breakfast in the hotel room, we decided to walk around Itaewon…

As I mentioned before,  I really love the environment here…



After peeks through all the shops, we spot a Turkish snacks shop and we decided to enter…

Bought quite a number of pastries from the Kervan Turkish bakery

Biasa lah, sorang tunjuk tu sorang tunjuk ni, so jadi lah banyak…

I love their Turkish delights so much!!!!


And then, we started to look for the Seoul Central Mosque since today is Friday, and the guys need to go for Friday prayer...

Walking up the hill, we discover so many halal restaurants and grocery stores as well!
(Habis my papa borong makanan tin perisa arab pulaks...)
And now we know where to have our dinner for the next day!
And the Seoul Central Mosque was found...
Then, they sent me, rifqi & mama back to hotel and they went for their prayer...

Turkish delight-ing while walking...

Seoul : Part 1 (Gyeongbokgung Palace, Bukchon Hanok Village, Dongdaemun Market, Cafe Nescafe Itaewon)


For this year trip, my family finally decided on Seoul and my papa suggested us to stay longer to ensure we got to explore Seoul properly... So our stay lasted for 7 nights and 8 days... Our flight was on 15/03/2017 and we reached Seoul late at night (after a few transit)...

Keep up with my update : Part 1, PArt 2, Part 3, PArt 4, Part 5, Part 6

Hotel 

We decided to stay at Itaewon because from what we read, it is easy to find halal food there... It was very easy, indeed!
We stayed at Hamilton Hotel throughout our vacay, i strongly recommend this hotel as it is very convenient, the lift & escalator(have to cross the road) to Itaewon subway is just right in front of the hotel... I mean, really in front...


16/03/2017 (Day 2) 

After taking a good rest the previous night, we are so ready to explore Seoul...
The itinerary was all set (by my husband), so, there are only excitement flow thru our blood on that day :p 
My husband was more excited about the weather =.=... The weather everyday ranging from 6°C-7°C(morning) and will increase in the afternoon and reduce back to at most 2°C at night...

Itaewon

I can say that Itaewon is one of the beautiful town in Seoul... I love the buildings and the features of the place! We got everything we need here! Halal foods are everywhere (will write about the restaurants we been to in another post), skincare shops are everywhere too (Lush is not far from our hotel as well)! Subway, KFC etc. are all here! 
(tapi for muslim jangan nak makan subway pulak kat sini, naik subway boleh, makan jangan... ;p)

Rifqi is all set and ready to go!!! Nak ikut rifqi jalan2 tak? ;p

Taking photo right after we stepped out from the hotel entrance, too excited on the first day! Behind is the elevator i was talking about...

Dotty's @ TTDI


I've been mentioning Dotty's to my husband, and that evening, when i don't feels like having coffee or breads, dan tu la he wanted to bring me here :p

I ok je la...
Me and my son pun tak dress up :p hehe... 
I thought we only gonna take Rifqi naik rides somewhere... 
It important to dress up during coffee sesh, cause i love to take pictures during our coffee sesh :pp 



 


 

 


First thing i expect when we decided to go to Dotty's is, i'm gonna try their pastries...
Too bad, that evening, every single bread in the shop were finished, even the mixture of the breads (i guess)... 
So we ordered cakes instead, and our usual coffees...


My (whatever name) cheesecake & Cappuccino RM 10... Who cares about the art, the cappuccino was really good!!!

 
And this cheesecake is a must try!!! 


My husband's Nuttella Orea Cheesecake... Taste really good... And then he complained it was too sweet, it is so obvious from the name of the cake itself... But it was so good too!!! Paired it with Long Black RM8


And what i can say is, these are the best cakes i've ever tasted so far...
I'm not trying to brag, they didn't give me any commissions or any free cake or something...
I just loves their cakes, and i told my husband, "sedap kan coffee dia..." I jarang nak puji... :p


I'm happy that we decided to came by!
