I am busier than a bee.
but because of the awesome app, Instagram (find me! ID : jamieliewdotcom), I managed to keep some of my friends updated with what’s going on here. even though my blog is a private blog, but I seldom blog about any personal stuff. so I guess through Instagram you’d get to know what’s going on, where I have been and all a little bit more.
an Italian restaurant in Samcheongdong, my favourite street in Seoul.
the accessory shop at Samcheongdong that I’ve always admired but never been inside. 비싸나봐.
Gwangalli, Busan. most beautiful beach I’ve been to. not for the waters, but for the night view.
at one point, these lady gaga nail polish were a real hit. but as Winter emerged, nowadays people put on dull colours like brown and grey. (>_>”) IKR.
taken while in the bus. and that’s Yeouido. very very near my place. just a 10minute bus ride away =D.
in some bar in Hongdae.
Autumn’s at it’s peak. Yonsei University.
the prettiest Korean girl I know =D.
Yonsei’s “mini” forest.
my best friend in class, Megumi!
being rocker with the rocker Yonsei Jacket.
Cold Stone. must try. they taste bloody friggin awesome. for the price of a small in Japan, you can get a large here. hah!
Autumn halfway gone =/.
outside my housing area at around 7-8am. sunrise.
when me and a junior got lost when we went to Nami Island. we literally walked from Nami (after the ferry, of course!) all the way to the bus station. in like more than an hour. when we could just ride a taxi (but it was so jam pfft) which might take 3minutes without jam.
the stone barbeque. like real stones!
taken while on the bus on the way to Jeonju, Korea’s Cultural Foodie town. I thought this picture look spectacular. just look at those mountains!
there’s a compartment for your smartphone in Homeplus!
this cracked me up. haha.
cow’s intestines. this portion costs more than RM60. gila. but so damn good when you eat it with soju!
Cheongyecheon’s Light Festival.
Huwon (backgarden) of Deoksugung Palace. also known as the Secret Garden. you pay extra 5,000won to get in. but it’s really beautiful in Autumn. came here right before the last Autumn rain where it flushed away all the leaves.
how you turn fried rice into samgak kimbab! (triangular onigiri)
passage to Huwon, Deoksugung.
a little something I got myself for Christmas. RM24 okay X_X.
saw this group called 100% at Hongdae (practically the easiest way to bump into people filming, except you have to go there everyday. well it’s near my house so…..). the guy in blue was really hot <3.
Palette at Samcheongdong has AWESOME passion fruit macarons.
wacky looking ice cream by Snowspoon at Hongdae.
the angry pumpkin got angrier after Halloween!
my favourite bar in Hongdae. pass SsangSsangMadang (SSMD should be on your right) and turn right. walk straight and you’ll see this huge bar. reasonably priced drinks.
Jokbal 족발. I’d rank this the 2nd pork to go for after Bossam. they are pig’s feet. absolutely delicious. remember to eat those chewy transparent parts! even if it might be hard to chew at times. but it’s filled with collagen!
Macarons by Ruben Jan Adriaan, the absolutely hot angmoh Patisserie guy in Hongdae
probably the only Sheep in Seoul; at Thanks Nature Cafe Hongdae. it’s at that main road stretch heading towards Hongik University. on the left if you’re heading towards Hongik. it’s underground under some cafe called Camille or something.
awesome cup popcorn with a hell lotta caramel. only 1000won. I like their butter flavour better though.
who needs Garretts now hehe.
that red pipe outside U-Plex, Sinchon, fully decorated.
Yonsei has their cone shaped tree decorated too! and their round bushes. superb! looks much better in real life though =S.
a bar named 나쁜여자 Nabbeun Yeoja. it means bad girl LOL. in Hongdae.
cute pot at Samcheongdong
what I get for dinner at my Hasukjib (occasionally. =S)
10 for 1,000won! cheap, delicious and cute. I always get them from Daiso. cheaper. heehehhe.
that dodgy road heading towards some run-down shack outside Yonsei KLI looks surprisingly mysterious and magical when it’s covered by snow. power of make up. even by nature.
Hongdae has all it’s tree’s lit at night!
the cake we made for our class teacher, Park Yeon Gyeong at some cake shop in Edae.
confused snowman is confused.
this tastes awesome. apparently it wasn’t fried. that’s what it said. but super cheesy and delicious okayyyyy =3.
I thought my eyes looked pretty scary here. if I said I had some eye surgery, some people might’ve believed. haha. but the truth is I have small eyeballs. it’s just an illusion. quite an ugly picture so next!
that’s not an assssssss. and that’s not supposed to be the asssssss-wholllllleeeeeee
my disgusting knee after I slipped and tripped because of the slippery ice on the floor. fell on hard brick floor. lucky I wearing a super thick pair of leggings. it didn’t even tear. but my knee was bleeding a bit. was not even healed now after weeks!
wondered what HOF is? it means House of Beer in German. and they serve Chicken and beer. apparently the best combination. I didn’t get it when I first came. but after almost a year, I TOTALLY GET IT! <3. in a random place at Haeundae, Busan.
Christmas Tree without a tree at Nampo-dong. very very very beautifully decorated. really!
Patbingsu and some eggs at Spaland, the grandest Jjimjilbang I’ve ever been to. located at Shinsegye, Busan. Shinsegye is the biggest departmental store in the WORLD!
saw this at Artbox Korea and totally cracked up. wondering why they don’t sell these in Seoul’s Artbox =(. sold out I guess.
it said “if you study for 10 more minutes, the face of your wife would change” and for the female version it said the same thing except that instead of face, it’s the JOB of your husband. lol.
picture of Busan from the tip of a mountain. was in the bus. I passed by this place while taking this bus when I first arrived but it was going too fast for me to capture any pictures. so I passed by it again, but this time, sitting at the right side of the bus and with my camera (phone pfft. was lazy) on standby.
it was a day before the Elections in Korea. and Busan station was filled with old folks, dancing and cheering to support Park Geun Hye, whom have as expected, won the elections. though everybody I know in Seoul voted for Mun Jae In. haha.
so now Korea has a woman president! GIRL POWER!
this was how crowded Busan Station was!
and more Chicken. Chir Chir at Hongdae.
my friend/student went to Japan bought me these awesome chocolates. I have yet to try it yet since I am still super filled with my crazy dinner. but I have always head about how fabulous these Royce Nama Chocolate is. having to be kept under 10degrees always. except I kept it in my bag and went into 3 warm places. errrrrrrrrrr. haha?
=S. hope it’ll still taste great. but I am super touched because I thought nobody here would really remember me T_____T. I get very touched when people do things which is dedicated for me. even the smallest things =S. like waiting for me pfft.
hugeasssss Christmas tree outside City Hall. and oh! there’s an Open Skating Rink too!
Waffles in Korea. overpriced but delicious. at Sand Cafe, Sinchon.
