 Day 6- 24th Jan 2013


 It was an extremely freezing cold day, wind was way too strong and we couldn't stay out for so long, so we just hang around in Myeongdong, do some last minute shopping and chilling in cafe
But we manage to find this yummy restaurant which serves Bulgogi etc.
Side dish
Their Menu
 The marinated beef was cooked with a mouthwatering stew with onions, mushrooms, enoki mushrooms and green onions instead of BBQ. And the texture of the beef is so tender and juicy. As the beef soaks it's own juice, whenever i bite the beef,  sweetness and savory of the beef are flowing out in my mouth. With the sweet and savory beef, the fragrant stew, it's an excellent combination with white rice!

After brunch we walked around, somehow i spot us on the screen *shy*
 Time to chill at Angel-in-us Cafe

Kim Soo Hyun!
Some Selca at Mplaze to use their washroom, their washroom are clean ^^

It taste good too
 Here comes to the end of my Seoul trip, overall i had a great time, but i hate it when it rains, i rather it snows at least i saw something i never seen before in Malaysia lol
