Today's plan was shopping but we ended up doing a lot of eating instead. Seoul is at -1 degrees and i'm still loving it.
Me and my girlfriend woke up around 1pm, yes we are pigs on vacation haha. We had some tea and fruit, got ready and headed out to Lunch. Today we wanted to have Jokbal which is korean style pig's foot so we went to a very popular restaurant in Hongdae. MYTH JOKBAL!
The food was considered rather cheap. 36,000KRW (34USD) for a 3~4 person portion set!
According to my girlfriend's information, Jokbal is popular among women because it's good for the skin. Hmm, I have doubts about that but hey! The thought of it is good. I was deciding to go for either the Original Jokbal or the Real Garlic Jokbal which looked seriously deliciously badass smelly which means there won't be any kissing or close talking later. haha My girlfriend yelled out "OF COURSE GARLIC!! <3 "Okay, here we go.
I personally cannot eat too much Pig Feet because the texture isn't really my cup of tea. I ate most of the meat which was very soft and the garlic really kept us eating.
So yes, we finished everything and we didn't want to leave yet because you found out there was free wifi and we wanted to upload photos haha!
After lunch we went on a hunt for a nice Cafe for some tea and dessert. What better place to go than Zera's Cafe while we are in HongDae!
Zera's Cafe is known for it's Homemade apple pies. It's been a while since i've had a good apple pie, Hong Kong really sucks at it so this was definetly the place to go. Oh! and it has Wifi, a good place to chill and good pie.
After a delicious pie we went on search for some shop my girlfriend craved to go. We really can't read Korean so at times it was difficult finding our way around.
No worries, we did make it in the end though. We did some shopping and before we knew it, it was supper already.
Today we met up with a friend which took us to more local location to eat Ddeokbokki. (Spicy Rice Cake)
Tadaaa! Cooking in progress! Would look better once it's all sauced up! and i forgot, it would look very very red. hahaha. Hmm, Soup is red, kimchee is red, ricecake and noodles are red....we will be shitting fire tonight.
After the warm dinner we went for dessert. AGAIN. Paris Baguette, which we don't have in Hong Kong.
We went for 2 different cakes which looked really cute and a tea each - the cups had wings and eyes!!!! We decided to give them a proper face haha.
Truly another romantic picture to end the day and this blog.

Taking a trip to Korea. It's been a while since i really took off somewhere not work related.
It was a sudden decision with no planning, so me and my girlfriend just took off in a click.
I've never been to Korea before and since it was so sudden my friends over there weren't available or couldn't join me on this trip. But that's alright, me and my girl have each other and i just want to walk around, eat and relax.
There's been a lot on my mind that i just want to wash off and i thought this trip may help.
So we arrived in Seoul late afternoon and headed to our apartment where we relaxed a bit, put down our bags and headed out to Myeong-Dong for some Andong jjimdak which is famous spicy steamed Andong chicken dish.
I personally cannot eat much spicy foods, but hey! I'm in Korea, a good chance to train up! If chicken is your meat of choice, Korean Jjimdak is a must in your list when you visit Korea. Main ingredients are chicken and Korean glass noodle, made of sweet potato. I found it rather spicy yet "Yummylicious!"
The cold sour radish soup would be your best friend if you cannot take spicy foods. Every time my tongue felt over burning i would sip some of the radish soup they provide and suddenly i'd be alright! I feel it works better than Milk!
Myeong-dong 2ga, 2-2,
Seoul, South Korea
After a very filling meal (we ate everything! to the last of its sauce!) we headed to Dongdaemun for shopping! We made many Cafe stops for a Tea/Coffee break with some cake while shopping. Feels like this trip is mostly eating hehe.
Dongdaemun is late night shopping location so we were out shopping till 4am. Before heading back home we decided to have some street snack too to end our night. hehe. Very romantic <3

Happy Halloween everyone! Once again this year i decided to head out to the busiest place during this day - Lan Kwai Fong!!!!
I had work all day and finished around 11pm where i then headed to my friends place to get changed into my outfit before going out. By the time we arrived to LKF it was already 1am. (Partying in HK often starts at 1am... HK people are night crawlers lol)
I am supposed to be Captain Hook but i don't know where my hook is. Don't ask, it's missing :(
Oh well! I'll just have to be Captain Lukian today. Hehe
Like every year this day Lan Kwai Fong is blocked up and packed with Monsters, Ghosts, Super Heroes, Animals and naked people. No way was i going to be part of that crowd being pushed around and have random people touching me so me and my girls decided to meet at the Top and walk down instead of the normal way of walking up. Knowing many people kinda has it's advantages too from being place to place haha.
So me and girls partied from Club to Club until around 4am when i decided to call out early since i had work at 11am the next morning.
Many interesting things happened in the middle of this but details i rather not bring out but let's just say someone was literally asking to be smashed by me. Obviously i wouldn't do such thing *cough.
Lukian has a very very very good EQ. So you can imagine what this girl was doing to me.
Anyway! For some reason finding taxi in HK has always been a bum for the past 2 years so imagine during celebration dates?
Many people queuing for Taxi, MANY taxis available but no one riding. Why? Because those jerk Taxi drivers are talking the price up - which is illegal, but what can we do?
Normally if i was in a hurry i would talk money with them or tell them to take me to the police station if they were unwilling to drive me (but only works if you're already inside the vehicle) Taxi drivers now lock their doors and make you talk money for they let you in. Crazy!
Being slightly frustrated with this taxi issue me and my girl decided to walk further away to Four Seasons Hotel where there defiantly be an available Taxi who's not part of the money talk crowd willing to take us home. Oh~ we also grabbed an Oreo McFlurry in our 24/hr McD's along the way. Heehee!!!
Hope you all had great night too! I'll make more effort during next years Halloween. I promise! xD
