it was a lovely autumn day and it was the “cultural day” for people of level 5 to visit Unhyungung 운현궁. there were 3 courses where we make tea, wear korean traditional clothes and make cute little hanboks out of paper.
such a beautiful day, yes?
as for my class, we started off with tea.
awkward face pfft. but the tea session was quite fun it was like real masak-masak (cooking game in malay). wait. it is REAL masak-masak hahaha.
and you eat yak-gwa 약과 to go with ze Korean tea.
also! you gotta eat the yakgwa like this. covering your hand with one mouth and putting the whole yakgwa into your mouth wth what happens if we eat the huger yakgwa. D=.
must have a picture with the paintings behind.
then we proceeded to the next room to wear Korean traditional outfits. sad for the guys because there were only 3 available for them but then theirs were so much prettier pfft. only 1 guy came in my class. there were.. only 3 guys in my class that time but 2 didn’t come D=. class with the most girls hahaha.
made out of 3pieces of paper. + another one for the ribbon in front. it’s all folding and gluing. I once thought you can attach it just like that but I guess I was wrong =S.
anyway, after that Megumi and I went for lunch and we strolled around Samcheongdong. =D.
best Hoddeok of its kind in Samcheongdong. (in my opinion).
I prefer the Honey Hoddeok and they are all 1,000won only! nyam nyam. the Auntie can speak in Japanese too! awesome D=.
here’s a picture of my pretty best friend =3. she’s very shy and thinks that all her pictures are horrible looking pfft.
spicy soy sauce for you to “paint” on your vegetable hoddeok. yeap that’s an apple. in soy sauce? yes. in soy sauce.
my honey hoddeok. it’s a must have (almost) every time I visit Samcheongdong!
the door of some cafe. just too cute.
my favourite alley in Samcheongdong because it’s artistic like that. there’s a cafe at the end and I finally tried it but it was so bloody expensive T_T. like 7,000won for a glass of hot chocolate. it’s nice though.
the exterior of the expensive cafe. it’s very cozy inside and super artistic outside.
the inside of the cafe. taken this year haha.
I am not sure if they do it during the colder seasons but during Summer, the boss(?) of the shop draws 1 minute portraits for 1,000won. it’s artistically ugly so I’d pass for this but the queue was amazing.
another reason to love this street in Samcheongdong is for it’s photogenic-ness.
there are many shoots around this area and you may see your favourite idol or model here too sometimes! =D.
just too cute!
even the “don’t throw rubbish” sign is cute!
trying to act all pretty hahahahaha. quite phail. =S. but the background is still awesome.
this is just cute. but super overpriced for it’s cuteness T_T.
on the way to Cheongwadae. can you believe it, it was my first time there pfft. after more than half a year being in Korea at that time.
you couldn’t take pictures facing the other parts of Cheongwadae but it’s fine here. not sure why you can’t but it’s just scary where the guards looks at everybody with a suspicious eye D=.
