How to get to Ikseon-dong Hanok Village, Seoul

On a recent trip to Seoul, I went to Ikseon-dong Hanok Village as it was the current “in” place to be. I haven’t really heard of this place in Seoul before so I thought why not go and check it out? After all, it is always nice to check out somewhere new. View this post on Instagram The current must go place for hippies. #익선동한욱마을 … Continue reading How to get to Ikseon-dong Hanok Village, Seoul

Tsukiji Fish Market

Tsukiji Fish Market, Japan (September 2017) Post Mortem

One of the places I visited while I was in Japan was the Tsukiji Fish Market. To be honest, I didn’t think it was a place that was particularly worth visiting. I know the draw is the tuna auction at 4.00 am (JST) but seriously, the idea of taking a cab in Tokyo to reach the market that early to watch the auction is quite … Continue reading Tsukiji Fish Market, Japan (September 2017) Post Mortem

Haru & OneDay

How To Get To Super Junior Lee Dong Hae’s Haru & OneDay Café

I finally went to Dongdonglee’s Haru & OneDay café after it opened some time last year. I’ve wanted to go on my previous trips but I either didn’t have the time or none of my friends wanted to go and there wasn’t a compelling reason enough to make the trip all the way to hang out at the café by myself without my laptop. I … Continue reading How To Get To Super Junior Lee Dong Hae’s Haru & OneDay Café

별마당 도서관 (Starfield Library)

별마당 도서관 (Starfield Library), Seoul

Starfield Library in Coex Mall, Seoul is definitely worth a visit when you are in Seoul. Apart from the fact that this is a public library in the middle of a shopping mall, be amazed by the fact that there are no physical boundaries to the library and no security to make sure people don’t steal books or anything like that. Everyone was either just … Continue reading 별마당 도서관 (Starfield Library), Seoul

West Confectionery, Yokohama

Taste Test: Fluffy Japanese Pancakes

Before I came to Yokohama, Japan, I’ve been seeing lots of videos online about those fluffy Japanese pancakes and day 1 when I arrived in Yokohama, I set out to hunt for them. After some research (ie Googling), I found out that West confectionery is home to these delicious pancakes and there is an outlet in Yokohama! The outlet in Yokohama is pretty easy to … Continue reading Taste Test: Fluffy Japanese Pancakes

Common Ground

How To Get to Common Ground, Seoul

There’s a relatively new hipster place in Seoul called Common Ground. The place is built with containers that are stacked and welded together to form a space. Just so you know, there’s a couple of such spaces in South Korea but I’m only aware of Common Ground that is within Metropolitan Seoul. The rest of the places similar to this I know are outside of … Continue reading How To Get to Common Ground, Seoul

Seoul Adventure: Super Junior Kyuhyun’s Mom House

So I finally went to visit Super Junior Kyuhyun’s café and guesthouse Mom House after bypassing the place so many times on my last few trips to Seoul. Mom House is the easiest Super Junior related establishment to get to. It’s located in Myeongdong. Just get out from Exit 2, walk straight pass Prince Hotel, turn right at the first lane and you’ll see the … Continue reading Seoul Adventure: Super Junior Kyuhyun’s Mom House

50 Shades of Cherry Blossoms in South Korea 2015

This recent trip to Korea was actually planned way back in September 2014. We booked our flights in December 2014. Haha. So to be honest, it was pure coincidence that we got to catch some of the Cherry Blossoms and other flowers that started to bloom. I’d like to say that there are Cherry Blossom trees pretty much all over the place but the parks definitely … Continue reading 50 Shades of Cherry Blossoms in South Korea 2015
