I don’t know how to start writing on my Korea’s trip. I have
so much to share. But I think I’m not a good travel writer. I do love reading
those who blogged about their travel experience. It helps a lot, especially to
someone like me who planned her trip totally based on what she google! Yes, I
google everything (who’s not, rite?). I guess I’m not going to write every single detail of my
trips starting from Day 1, 2, 3….. So much as I want to but I don’t think I
will be able to remember everything. As I mentioned in my previous entry, this
is really a last minute trip which I didn’t get to plan for it properly. My
itinerary is just on a piece of paper. There is no details on where & how
should I go to every single places. Did I mention that we spent almost freaking
2 hours at Incheon Airport just trying to rent a portable wifi device so that
we can google on how to go to our hotel in Seoul from Incheon. I don’t know how
time flies so fast :-P. Hmmm? Maybe I should start with what we’ve been doing for
those 2 hours. Should I? Ok maybe not.
We are lucky to experience the first snow for the season in Namdaemun Market. Can you see it?
I will start with my favorite drink, coffee. I love coffee,
the bitter the better :-P
Seoul is a coffee heaven for me. I love the fact that they have variety of
coffee shops in every corner of it streets. Coffee shop is everywhere! However,
it is not that cheap especially all those big cafe chain. It would cost you almost
about the same price Starbucks charge u here in Malaysia (around RM12 – RM16
Let see which coffee shop win my heart! Caffe Bene This is the first cafe we tried. We are on our way to Yeoido
Park when the wind blew hard in the cold early winter weather. It is damn cold
and we just stomped in to the nearest cafe we saw. The cafe interior was sleek
and modern. We both ordered Caramel Macchiato. According to Paparil, this is
the best Caramel Macchiato among all. I guess the first is always the best, agree?
Caffe Bene signature, Crayon Pop girls
Tom’s & Toms
We dropped by to the one near Cheongyecheon stream. It is
nice strolling down the stream with a cup of coffee in hand (minus the cold
Cheongyecheon stream, river in a city
Cafe Pascucci at Myeongdong Street Our tour guide’s friend recommended this cafe and rated
their Caramel Macchiato is the best among all the cafe she tried. This is not a
Korean based cafe chain but Italian based instead. But, honestly, I can’t
remember the taste of the coffee, maybe it’s not something worth remembering?
Or am I too sleepy or exhausted after a few trips back & forth in
Myeongdong shopping street? :-P Holly’s Coffee I remember this cafe! Do you know why? *wink wink* There are
2 reasons which make me remember this cafe the most. Firstly, this is where I
tried Citron Ice Tea for the first time and I really love it! I can still
remember the taste even now. Hmmm...I have to change my earlier statement on
“the first is always the best” to “the first is the hardest to forget”, sounds
Holly's Coffee, a cafe to remember
Apart from being a coffee lover I’m also a shopaholic myself. I went a little too overboard while shopping in Ewha. I have abandoned Paparil for about an hour at Hollys’s Coffee to continue my shopping spree. Sorry Paparil :-) I love shopping!
Man's heaven, the beautiful Ewha Women University. Girls are everywhere + magnificent view
Paris Baguette The last coffee we had while in Korea is in Paris Baguette.
We tried the one in Incheon Airport itself while waiting for departure. Other
than coffee, Paris Baguette is famous of selling bread and pastry.
Flying to Coffeeland, anyone?
So the winner is Citron Ice Tea in Holly’s coffee! My most memorable drink in Korea is not even a coffee. Hehehe…Till we meet again. Bye peeps!
How is my new blog template? Do you like it? It seems lively
than the previous template, rite? I want my life in 2014 blooming with flowers
and full with color of happiness. I want to paint my 2014 with colors, bright
& happy colors. I know the first 3 month of the year will be the most
stressful month (as usual) of the year. However, I will try my best to tolerate
it and when it’s over I promise myself I will try to make up for all the missing
minutes, hours & days.
