Trip 2014 with LOVE: Day 4

After having so much fun in Jeju its time to leave!ㅠㅠ I'm not sure if I will able to come to Jeju again someday. Lovely place, so many precious moment here. ^^ We check out little bit early as we have to go to Jeju-si from Sagye-ri. We took bus but I can't remember the exact time from Sagye-ri to Jeju-si as we were quite sleepy ㅋㅋㅋ Maybe one hour??ㅋㅋ

Our flight were at 12:55 p.m but we have to stop by somewhere as I wanna buy souvenir ㅋㅋ. We look for the souvenir but we can't find it.ㅠㅠ At last we decided just to go to the airport as for sure there must be a souvenir shop in airport. ^^ Even though people will think its quite expensive for buying souvenir at airport but I'm not sure when I will visit Jeju again, for sure I wanna bring back something as small token. ^^

When we reached airport we heading to departure hall first and there I saw one shop!  We go inside the shop and found out there is cute key chain. Wee ^^ Perfect choice! I take out the list I prepared earlier and start counting! ㅋㅋㅋ My boyfriend quite surprise when he saw me took so many key chains! ㅋㅋ Well I have big families and many friends, its unfair if I buy just for certain people. ㅋㅋㅋ

I told him to count key chains for me as I just take it and put inside basket. ㅋㅋ I need 40 pieces! I wanna buy something for my nieces and nephews however there are not many choice there so I think better buy something for them in Seoul. There is one staff keep talking to us and were surprise when she discovered my age! She didn't believe it!ㅋㅋㅋ She told me I don't look as my age, I look younger! Owh very nice compliment! ^^ ㅋㅋ  She ask about my boyfriend age and told us that I'm looks around my boyfriend age! ㅋㅋ Very funny but I enjoy it!^^ 

We had our quick lunch at airport. Just bread (빵) as we were rushing! Then I saw another shop! ㅋㅋ so I told him I wanna go inside. ㅋㅋ I end up buying some fridge magnet there!ㅋㅋ When he look at it he told me why I bought it. Well I don't have good explanation to him ㅋㅋ, souvenir??! ㅋㅋ Then we were running to check in our flight! ㅋㅋㅋ This time we take Lee Min Hoo flight! Did Lee Min Hoo own commercial airlines? ㅋㅋ Kidding, he just an ambassador for Jeju Air. ^^

Jeju Air were slightly small compare to Aseanna but its better as we sit next to each other! ^^ During one hour I just looking at my panel window while he's sleeping! Yes my boyfriend is a heavy sleeper! Whenever we take bus or subway he can sleep even for few minutes!ㅋㅋㅋ When we about to landing there is turbulence! It was scary!ㅠㅠ Luckily the pilot landed it professionally. Hats off to the pilot! ^^

Then we took subway and look for a guesthouse in Seoul. We decided to stay somewhere around Euljiro sa-ga. After we check in we go out to have our dinner and strolling around! ^^ Its quite cold but we were starving! ㅋㅋ I decided to introduce him to Malaysia cuisine as I found out that there is Malaysian Restaurant somewhere at Seoul. The restaurant located at Sangmyung University Entrance. We took subway and take bus to the place. 

We were first customer for that day!ㅋㅋㅋ I wish to had "Nasi beriyani" but for that day they have no stock!ㅠㅠEnd up I had rice and "ayam masak merah" (chili chicken)?? I don't know how to explain it in English!ㅋㅋ He had rice and "asam pedas ikan tenggiri" ok! I have no idea what to translate it in English! ㅋㅋㅋ My boyfriend also tried "belacan"! which I never had entire of my life! ㅋㅋ The owner of the restaurant asked me where did I got the information about their restaurant. I told him that I got it from Korean Tourism Organization (KTO Seoul webpage) 

We enjoy our cuisine and the owner gave us "bubur jagung" (sweet corn porridge) Malaysia dessert as service by them. ^^ I took some pictures of the restaurant and told them that I will write about them here. They were happy and looking forward for it! ^^ I will write about it in other entry. ^^ After finish our dinner, we had our coffee! Finally I had a taste of Kim Soo Hyun coffee! ㅋㅋ Angel in-us coffee! Then  we decided to go back to our guesthouse as too tired! ㅠㅠ

p/s: Owh he bought me a teddy today as my belated birthday gift! ^^ Lovely!ㅋㅋ

Trip 2014 with LOVE: Day 3 Part 2

After a very nice trip to Udo, we went off to our guesthouse for taking our bag packs and heading to the next destination!^^ At first we plan to go to Gapado Island but we need to check in at guesthouse somewhere at Sagye-ri first. We took bus from Seongsan to Sagye-ri. It takes almost two hours. When we reach there its almost 16:00 and we don't think we have enough time to go to Gapado Island. (May be next time) ^^

We also plan to meet his friend. ^^ The funny part is his friend were in Jeju-si for grooming!!ㅋㅋㅋ So we looking for a guesthouse and take a bus to the town. We walking but couldn't find the guesthouse ㅠㅠ At last the owner of the guesthouse fetch us! ㅋㅋ Once we finish check in and rest for a while we go out again. ^^

Since its still early for meeting his friend, we decided to go to Sanbangsan. Sanbangsan were known as a propitious site with the shape of Geumgyeporan (a golden hen brooding eggs). However when we reached Sanbangsan, it already closed for tour!ㅠㅠ Luckily in front of it is Yongmeori! Yongmeori also known as dragon head coast.

We went down to Yongmeori. The place quite crowd and little bit dangerous. It is advisable to wear a proper shoes for going this coast. At one spot, my boyfriend fell off! ㅠㅠ Luckily nothing bad happen to him! Pheww!! If not I will not forgive myself and I don't know how to answer to his parent! Thank God! Then we enjoy taking photos, stroll around this area!^^ Some Korean were looking at me with eyes wide open! Perhaps because I'm wearing hijabb and my boyfriend is Korean?! ㅋㅋㅋ

Here we can see lots of local selling fresh seafood with soju. (Popular beverage among Korean, but I can't drink it as its alcohol). Sometimes I felt guilty ㅠㅠ, seems like my boyfriend wanna having it but... Strolling around Yongmeori really refresh myself! Healing myself. ^^

Today we saw sunrise at Seongsan sea shore and we saw sunset at Yongmeori coast! Lovely view! ^^ We waiting for a bus to go back to the town however there is no bus!!ㅠㅠ We waiting for almost one hour! Finally his friend's mom decided to fetch us!ㅋㅋ My boyfriend was quite nervous because he never met his friend mom and he hardly see his friend as his friend lived in Jeju. I didn't feel anything?! ㅋㅋㅋ Perhaps because I already get used to it?? Meeting someone new during trip?? ㅋㅋ

When we met his friend and mom, I greet them formally, instead his friend greet me in English! ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ  Then they talking but I have no idea since they were talking in Korean. ㅠㅠ At last we reached town, his friend's mom drop us and three of us heading to a restaurant. ^^ This restaurant were popular in Sagye-ri so we need to take turn! Its very windy! Burrrr..

After waiting for almost 10 minutes, finally its our turn! Wee ^^ They ordered the menu since all was written in Korean! However I don't have to worry because my boyfriend knows what I can eat and what I can't consume.^^ We had seafood jjambbong, (짬뽕) chili shrimp (질리새우) and some other menu. Delicious!!

We enjoy our dinner and talking to each other. His friend plan to go to Australia for working holiday visa so this is their farewell party. I'm glad to join in!^^ ㅋㅋㅋ

p/s: More update for day 4 soon! ^^ Stay tune!

Trip 2014 with LOVE: Day 3 Part 1

For the third day, we woke up very early as we agreed to join a tour for seeing sunrise with the others. ^^ We get off to see the sunrise at 5:10 a.m ^^ It was breezing and turn to be cold!ㅠㅠ We walk in the group of 15 people and all of them were Korean, I'm the only foreignerㅋㅋ. However I talked to my room mate and sometimes talked to my boyfriend.ㅋㅋㅋ It takes about 20 minutes walking from guesthouse to the place to see the sunrise. ^^

We didn't hiking Seongsan Ilchoolbong, but we went near to the sea shore where Seongsan Ilchoolbong is the back ground. :) We take some pictures here on our second day! ^^  Seeing sunrise with someone we love is a nice experience! ^^* All of us also try to snap pictures we jump up to the sky with sunrise as the back ground, but we were failed!ㅋㅋㅋ

On the way back to the guesthouse, we stop by at canola field and took pictures ^^ If it was during daylight we have to pay for it!ㅋㅋ Then we heading back to our guesthouse. He prepared for our breakfast ^^ Simple breakfast but isn't he's nice? ^^*ㅋㅋ After we finish our breakfast we went to Udo. From ferry terminal to Udo took around 30 minutes. We arriving at Udo around 10:30 a.m. We decided to cycle around Udo.^^

It was fun but for me quite scary, because this is my first time riding bicycle in the main road.ㅠㅠ Back home I never riding bicycle at the main road and its been so long since my last ride! Yes I rode bike last year in Yeouido but its in park so its totally different! Seeing buses, lorries,cars and motorbikes sharing the same lane with me makes my heart beat fast!ㅋㅋ

I can't finish our cycling throughout the island because I was so scared and I didn't trust myself!ㅠㅠ We fight little bit while cycling!ㅠㅠ However at last we turn back and cycling towards the place we rented it. I felt guilty but I can't imagine if we still ride the bicycle and something happen! More over I saw dogs chasing each other ahead of us!ㅋㅋ I'm very scared of dogs.ㅠㅠ

After we return our bike, we walked to some part in Udo and we finish our Udo trip with a nice coffee, brownie and peanut ice cream. ^^ People says if you go to Udo, peanut ice cream is a MUST! We had it and it was yummy!^^

My room mate ^^

Trip 2014 with LOVE: Day 2

After a very long journey, less rest here we go again for our second day trip! ^^ We decided to go to Seongsan-ri as we wanna see the sunrise at Seongsan Ilchoolbong and we wanna go to Udo. Before we start our journey we have brunch I guess?? as its too late to call it breakfastㅋㅋ. 

For our brunch we have kimbab. Having a soup refresh our body (I don't know what was it name). The kimbab were nice!  Even though the size of kimbab is too big and its not easy to full all in I kept eating it! ㅋㅋㅋ Yes as it too big so I left some of it here and there ㅋㅋ and bit messy! ^^~~ 

Then we took our bus to Seongsan-ri. From Jeju to Seongsan-ri it took about two hours. We reach at Seongsan around 15:00. We go around looking for a guesthouse but all were fully booked! We were struggling looking for it as its weekend along with public holiday so many Korean visit Jeju.ㅠㅠ

Finally we decided to stay at Dosirak Guesthouse. This guesthouse recently open so not many people knows about it! Lucky us, we had a place to sleep!^^ We put our bag packs and plan to go to Seobjikoji. One of interesting place to visit when you were in Seongsan-ri

From our guesthouse we kept walking without any proper guide and all we know is it take about 1 hour from guesthouse to Seobjikoji. We just reading the signboard and kept walking!ㅋㅋ We stop by at a place that looks like Seobjikoji but find out its not!ㅋㅋ He also have NO idea since he never go to Seobjikoji before!ㅋㅋ Then we kept walking until we finally saw the signboard to the place! It was so far, so we just snap pictures from far but it didn't turn out well!ㅠㅠ.

We took another one hour heading off to our guesthouse!A bit tired but hey we were on trip!! It's normal for walking ㅋㅋㅋ. After resting for a while at guesthouse, we decided to sip cup of coffee downstairs. There is cafe downstairs!Wee ^^ It's my first time having coffee for this trip! I choose caramel macchiato! (My favorite) ^^ He had banana smoothie. ^^  

Finish our coffee we had our dinner near to our guesthouse! We had Jeonbog dduk bae gi (전복뚝배기)! It's alive! We also having fish. ^^ Supper yummy! While heading back to guesthouse it was very windy! Owhh so cold!!ㅠㅠ so we rushing back to our guesthouse! Then we sat at living room watching TV with other guests, I didn't know what its all about as there is NO English subtitle!ㅠㅠ People in the guesthouse were unfriendly and we felt very awkward!ㅠㅠ

We went to our rooms and katalk to each other!ㅋㅋ We decided to move to another guesthouse on the next day!Can't stand the awkward feeling!ㅋㅋ Then I met my new mates, she's Korean, a teacher. We talked a lot until I'm completely forgot my boyfriend! ㅋㅋㅋ Pity him! ㅠㅠ  

p/s: What about day 3?? Stay tune! ^^

Trip 2014 with LOVE : Day 1

After a long break, I will back into my routine tomorrow! I wish not to but I should praise God for giving me extra break due to my health issue.^ ^  At least I had enough rest before starting contribute again. About a week ago I've been to Korea and travel with my boyfriend to certain part of Korea, without proper guidance and spontaneous trip, it was great!!! ^^

I depart from Kuala Lumpur at 8:30 a.m (it was delayed) supposedly at 8:00 a.m!Inside flight I met new friends. ^^ A Korean girl and a Korean Australian guy, actually he's Korean but he just received Australian citizenship recently. ^^ Along way we talked a lot and they asked what makes me come back to Korea for the third time! ㅋㅋㅋ I am thinking what is the best answer to give to them??!! What else??!It's because my boyfriend is Korean??ㅋㅋ. It was fun! For about 6 hours 20 minutes inside the plane with them feels like nothing! We hear songs together, we having snack together and of course we snap a picture together! ^^

Around 15:35 we touch down. Owh here I am again at Incheon Airport!^^ Once landed I got katalk from my love!ㅋㅋ After finished immigration check in, I text him asking where he is. ㅋㅋ I wait about 3 minutes at arrival hall, then I saw him!! Owh its hard to describe the feeling!!!^^ It's not a dream! We met again after about 6 months??! ^^ Pity him he didn't had his lunch yet as waiting for me ㅠㅠ! If only I knew, I won't had my lunch inside airplane! ㅠㅠ

Then we rushing to Gimpo Airport to take our flight to Jeju at 17:55. He bought snack, tteok (rice cake) as he's starving! Owh I felt guilty.. pity him!ㅠㅠ We took Aseanna Airline to Jeju. The price for the flight tickets are affordable and we got it last minutes ㅋㅋ .We got separate seat though!ㅠㅠ Luckily its just for an hour! A guy sit next to me were very rushing so I had no choice but to move out in hurry!ㅠㅠ

Once we landing its already around 19:00, since we didn't make any reservation for rooms. We sat at airport for a while and he's trying to look for it. Then after we found it we took the bus. We decided to stay around Jeju-si as its too tired to take bus to Seongsan-ri. We had our dinner at small cafe. ^^  He had kimbab and I had tteokbukki and sweet potato squid fried (고구마튀김오징어튀김). It was nice! ^^

p/s: Stay tune for our 2nd day trip! ^^
