A Day at Daehag-ro~~

If you asked me out of the places in Seoul, which one is my favorite, then without thinking twice, I'll definitely will answer you with "Daehag-ro"~ The first area where I lived when I first come to Seoul, my first language school I attended, and I befriended a lot of foreigner friends which some of them still are one of my best friends up to today. =D

They have lots of art centers, street performers, theaters, lovely cafes and crowded street, but not too crowded. There still a long list of reasons why I'm so in love with this area. ^^  Last week, I decided to revisit this area, but my favorite cafe around this place is not opened. T.T I planned to go up to Naksan Park or going around the Ihwa Maeul Village but the rain pour down so heavily that it will be too dangerous to go up on the steep road ahead. So I decided to just wonder around, having an early dinner then go for a cup of tea and a cake.

I went into some Sundubu restaurant, place where they sell any kinds of Sundubu, which is a Korean Tofu Soup.
Each portion costs you around KRW 8,000 but if you bought a set menu then it'll cost around KRW 19,000 for both with an extra additional of Ddeok Galbi. And the side dishes they served tastes good, especially the white colored thing which tastes like jelly, if only anyone can tell me what it is. LOLZ
It doesn't take too long until the Tofu Stew is ready to be served. =)
For you who don't like spicy food, this tofu stew taste really spicy, super spicy, spicier compare to tofu stew you ate somewhere else. But you won't have to worry~ As the restaurant served you a raw egg in the table, and you can put it inside the boiling tofu stew. This way, the soup won't taste as spicy as the original one~ It still taste spicy for me though even after I put an egg and pour a glass of water inside~ T-T I'm not saying it tastes bad, it's just too spicy for me.
Next thing coming up is the Ddeok Galbi, I ate these kind of thing once in Damyang before, and I have to said that the Ddeok Galbi here, doesn't taste too good. The ginger (?) is too strong~ Even when me and my friend feels hungry, we don't even manage to finish half of the Galbi~ o_O" You can imagine how bad it taste right? I should have just ordered the tofu stew without the set menu.

After finishing our lunch, we were planning to go on for some girls shopping, but problem is the rain is pouring even heavier, so we decided to find a place to sit down and wait until the rain stops. I saw a cake shop near the Dongdeok Woman University Art Center, which cakes look super duper delicious....

Looks not bad right? But too bad, that some Ahjummas bringing their children who came in last after me, asking their children to go up stair and grab the chairs. And the things which makes me even feel angrier is that there's actually one table on the 2nd floor and another one on the 3rd floor, but they were occupying both of them, when they are actually only needing one. Why would people from the same group sitting on a different table at a different floor?! Feeling annoyed, we moved to the nearest bakery shop we can find which is.... Napoleon Bakery~!
When you get inside, the place look so average and there's not much people inside even when the weather was that bad. Heavy rain and strong wind.... (Note : The outside view of the bakery is a result of the naver search, I don't get to take the picture from outside due to the bad weather ^^)
See how empty the place is even with the bad weather? I was worried that the thing here doesn't taste nice, so we just bought a piece of cake with a glass of tea. LOLZ~! But to our surprise, the Cherry Yoghurt Cake I ordered taste so yummy~!! It can even be compared to my favorite cake store at Sinsa, Deux Amis~! The taste is comparable but the cake price here is like 20 percent cheaper than those at Deux Amis~ If you're a cake or bread lover, you should really try this place out~!

And for your information, they will open a new branch soon in Gangnam Area on 20th November 2015~! Don't forget to mark your calendar and go for a taste =D

A lot of people has been debating on whether this case is based on true events which happens back in Miryang in 2004. And once again the case which happened 12 years ago is getting people's attention.

Seoul Plastic Surgery : Real Story for Breast Augmentation~ Operasi Plastik di Korea : Pembesaran Payudara~

I have always wanted a glamorous body. I have a flat chest, which makes me feel inferior when I have to go to the beach with a bunch of friends, where my friends wear beautiful bikini, while I'm only able to take a look and feel envy of it.
Dr. Kim Dong Gyu is one of the best korean surgeon in breast surgery, and can be considered as top breast surgeon in Korea. Dr. Kim is stationed in Izien Plastic Surgery Hospital, which has won several Customer Satisfaction Awards since 2011 up to 2014. This make me feel more comfortable to have the surgery here. Since I decided to go on with the surgery, the nurses took me to the 3rd floor for a blood sample, so you can see a bandage on my hand when I took my before pictures. ^^
The surgeon gives a very detailed consultation on my current breast problem, how he will do the surgery and what type of implants he will be using. I was amazed by how patient he is to answer my questions 1 by 1, as you knew that many Korean Surgeons are very impatient…

[Review] on The King's Woman

Since the Korean Drama has been very disappointing lately. There are no good K-Dramas to watch lately, so I started to drooling over Chinese Drama titled the 'Princess Agent' which is played by the super famous Chinese actress, Zhao Li Ying, but again the drama is so disappointing with the lack of acting skill of the main actor, then a confusing story line which gets us to no where, and an end which ended without any conclusion at all! Then, I stumbled into this drama, which just started to air like 3 weeks ago, and still have another 30 episodes to go. Despite the cliche plot just like every other Chinese ancient imperial palace drama, this drama is likeable. At first I started to watch because the main girl, Dilraba Dilmurat, is super pretty and the trailer which has been go on like weeks is super awesome. The stories is about love stories of King of Qin and this pretty girl, which of course a fictional story. If you don't know who he is, King of Qin is the one who conq…
