Guideline/Transportation: Seoul OWL BUS

Have any of you having DIFFICULTIES while in South Korea?? O-o Like you been busy walking here and there, visiting to many places! Then out of blue you realize that MIDNIGHT approach??? Ohh My!! "What would I do??" You were thinking of HOW to go back to your hostel/hotel/guesthouse??? SUBWAY only available until 12 A.M. and been STOP earlier at some stations!!ㅠㅠ

You are ALONE and DIDN'T have any KOREAN friends to contact?? WORSE scenario is you DON'T know anybody there?! O-o  Don't WORRY or become PANIC!!ㅋㅋㅋ Korea is ONE of MOST SAFEST country ever I've been to!ㅋㅋ I DIDN'T say that there is NO crime at all, get the CORRECT fact ok?? However the percentage is VERY LOW!ㅋㅋㅋ Even though Koreans are known as HEAVY DRINKER, you still DON'T have to worry walking ALONE at night!ㅋㅋㅋ

Yet  I guess its NOT a good suggestion to WALK let say from Sanggyedong to Jongro! CRAZY solution! You will take few HOURS to reach!!ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ Then how CAN you reach your place?? Taking CAB is ONE of the solution, but for BAG PACKERS, they might think it will COST them a lot!ㅋㅋㅋ (Most bag packers are FRUGAL, seems familiar word! O-o) ㅋㅋㅋ I think I'm ONE of them :P ㅋㅋㅋ Then how CAN I go back??O-o

GOOD news for bag packers! ^^ Within SEOUL there are OWL BUS! Why they call it as OWL bus??? Well I'm NOT sure about that ㅋㅋㅋ but if we think logically OWL been ACTIVE at NIGHT, so maybe that's the REASON they choose OWL rather than other ANIMAL name?? ㅋㅋ Owl bus have been INTRODUCED to Seoulites on 12 September 2013. When Seoul Metropolitan Government introduce it, they selected ONLY some  routes (normally crowd with people even late night) and starting to FULLY operated throughout Seoul GRADUALLY.

How to DIFFERENTIATE between ORDINARY bus and OWL bus?? First is its OPERATION HOURS start at MIDNIGHT to 5 A.M. Next is the bus signage, OWL BUS have words N followed by numbers, along with OWL character on bus LED panel. Apart from that, you can see OWL IMAGE  will be placed at OWL bus stop. The bus FARE is 1950 won (adult), 1800 won (teens), 1200 won (kids) (for those who pay using cash). For those who INTERESTED to know MORE about OWL BUS  or it ROUTES, you can visit here.

p/s: I never get a chance to use OWL BUS while i'm at Korea, perhaps I can try in the future??! ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ

Korean Restaurant Review # Malaysia: DubuYo/ Dubu Dubu

Hi guys! Sorry for NOT being able to post new entry last week ㅠㅠ After back from traveling within my beloved country, I was so BUSY! Catch up my works!ㅠㅠ Finally I got a CHANCE to write my piece of mind here!ㅋㅋ I'm back at my hometown few days ago but seems like my mind still left WANDERING!ㅋㅋㅋ Did you guys experience something like this before?? If any of you did, I guess you will know what I'm talking about don't you??ㅋㅋㅋ

About my RECENT trip, its not much that I can share it here as this BLOG more focus on South Korea and anything related to it, plus my RECENT trip is within Malaysia!ㅋㅋ However there is something that my mind cannot interpret it well.. Where ever I'm going I kept bum with something that related to Korea, either Korean, Korean restaurant or etc.ㅋㅋㅋ Like my recent trip, near to my hotel there is ONE Korean restaurant!ㅋㅋㅋ Well I DON'T get a chance to go there and I also DIDN'T know if it "Halal Korean Restaurant" or notㅠㅠ

Ok enough babbling!ㅋㅋㅋ My topic for today is Korean Restaurant Review that I've BEEN to. As you guys know I LOVE Korean food, so sometimes I go to Korean restaurant, DINE in there or I try to COOK any Korean cuisine by myself.ㅋㅋㅋ On last January, before my trip to Vietnam, I got a chance to dine in at one of "Halal Korean restaurant" somewhere in KL. The restaurant I've been to is DUBU DUBU. However I NOTICED that they CHANGE their name recently, their new name is DUBUYO.

There are 11 DubuYo RESTAURANTS within Malaysia. Most of it at FAMOUS shopping center like Midvalley Megamall, Berjaya Times Square, and Sunway Pyramid. DubuYo that I've been to last time LOCATED at Nu Sentral. We all know that many of Korean dishes are famous as HEALTHY dishes! However NOT everybody can finish it well, these depend on people TASTE BUD!ㅋㅋㅋ DubuYo is very famous for its hearty SOONDUBU JJIGAE!! There are 9 VARIETIES of Soondubu Jjigae at DubuYo,

Interested to TRY it, check it out here.ㅋㅋ  I'm NOT sure how does it taste as I NEVER try it.ㅠㅠ Why not someone go there, have it and give your RESPONSE, commenting below this post?? ㅋㅋ :P Menu that I've tried there is HONEY GARLIC BULGOGI. As I'm a DIE HARD FAN for Bulgogi, wherever I went to Korean restaurant I ALWAYS try Bulgogi.ㅋㅋㅋ For me the TASTE of Bulgogi HERE is GOOD but not as BEST as the one I HAD in SEOUL!ㅠㅠ  Of course food at it MOTHERLAND is the BEST compare to other places.ㅋㅋ For DRINK, I choose PEACH TEA. ^^ Even though the dishes is not as the BEST as I had in Korea, but I highly RECOMMENDED this restaurant for Korean Cuisine LOVERS!ㅋㅋㅋ

p/s: I did SNAP some photos while I'm there UNFORTUNATELY my old smartphone I CANNOT attached the photos here.ㅠㅠ Thanks to google though! I can SEARCH for DubuYo image on internet! :Pㅋㅋㅋ
