Day 7 & 8 of Seoul - the last random bits of here & there

walked over to Myeong dong for some street food instead of for the amazing shopping that many raved about .... i am just not into cosmetic, facial care and overly warm and energetic sale persons... =S 






before we had our dinner at one of the many restaurants along the street....and for our last dinner in korea... we chose Chinese food.... =D  ... 


din order much as the street food earlier on was quite successful in filling part of my tummy... 

As it was still early, we decided to pop by Lotte Mart again and it was the best decision made on the trip just because we got to bump into 2 handsome actors from Singapore... 

one of them was a lot friendlier and gotten all of us converted into his fans with his politeness and willingness to pose for a photo with 洪妈妈 and 洪爸爸... =D  


~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

spotted interesting oldies building in the neighbourhood we were staying in on our way out for brunch on our last morning in Seoul....

we chose this Italian restaurant for brunch just because it was the only restaurant opened at 10+am.... the neighbourhood, Hapjeong, we were staying in was basically a dead town every morning despite being within walking distant to Hongdae.... 


free 'naan' as starter

prawn risotto for me 

seafood pasta for 洪妈妈 and 洪爸爸

and carbonara for my mr ang 


ending the finale post on our Seoul trip with this final pic of our barang barangs at the luggage compartment of the airport express...

things to do - SHOP in summer clothing!!!! eat more street food!!!! 
places to go - nami island, jeju, taebaek - descendants of the sun filming location ... wahahahaha

Day 7 of Seoul - Nansam Tower

2 stops on Line 4 from Chungmuro station and we reached Hoehyeon station where the elevator to Namsan Tower was situated.... alternative to this elevator would be a 20 to 30 minutes hike up slope to where the start point of the cable car to nansam tower is.... so 'die die' also must locate this elevator.... wahahahaha




what's interesting about this elevator is that it travels diagonally without a shaft 


up up up we went!!!

and the view from within the elevator 


bought our cable car tickets 


the man who made the cable car ride possible
