Let's GO, Seoul●Busan! 首爾●釜山趴趴走!


안녕하세요 여러분! \^0^/
Annyeonghaseyo, everyone!

Should you find my blog post getting less words, simply meaning to say I'm getting lazy orz
It's really a commitment to set aside time, sit down and write about something.
Salute to all full-time bloggers out there!

For those who are still with me at this point, I still hope you enjoy reading! :)

September 11, 2016 (Sunday)


Can I see a show of hands who watch <The Return of Superman>?
A tv reality show airing celebrity fathers taking care of their children.

I believe you have known the triplets, Dae-han, Min-guk and Man-sae?
There was an episode when their father brought them for dumplings, and they ate deliciously.
(see screenshots below)


Song family, the dumpling lovers

"2 servings per person, fair enough, right?" says Song daddy.

Just can't get enough of their cuteness... so adorable with the costume!!!
More more!!!




Seeing them eating so deliciously, it makes me feel hungry..
(yea, imma so hungry now ;___;)

Actually we didn't plan to have Bareunda-Kimseonseng today.
In fact, as we are visiting the Gangnam Terminal Underground Shopping Center
(a.k.a. Express Bus Terminal Station Underground Shopping Center, or GOTO Mall),
surprisingly we found an outlet here :D


바르다-김선생 Bareunda-Kimseonseng 正直的金先生

**how to get to this location : take metro/subway to Express Bus Terminal Station, Exit 7**
Address : 서울특별시 서초구 반포동 19-3 지하상가 1구역 G020,21
Tel : 02-537-3954
Operating Hours : 10:00~22:00


Quickly we placed our order, and wait to receive "beep-beep" call.





Ta-da!!!
One serving of dumpling (만두"man-du") costs KRW4,000.
Seriously this serving is definitely not enough for an adult.
Even kids can eat 2 servings!

For the sake of tasting, we ordered one serving instead.
It's prawn (새우"se-woo") filling btw.





To be frank, personally I think it's just taste so-so.
Freshness, yes. Taste, yes. Filling, yes. But just so-so. Average.
People might be exaggregating while they say "it is the best dumpling ever".
Average RM2 per dumpling. I would say, they aren't cheap thou :/
Worth trying, anyway :)


As we were too busy window shopping, I forgot to take pictures of the Underground Shopping Center.
NOWAYYY \\@.@//


Basically there are 5 main/popular underground shopping center you can find in Seoul.
(1) Gangnam Terminal Underground Shopping Center (GOTO Mall);
(2) Yeongdeungpo Underground Shopping Center;
(3) Gangnam Underground Shopping Center;
(4) Jamsil Underground Shopping Center;
(5) COEX Mall.

GOTO Mall is especially popular since it is a main hub for people who are interchanging from city to city, by bus. It is convenient for working ladies to pop-into the stores whenever they are transit from one station to another. Hence, most of the stores here targeted on women's fashion.
Clothes, cosmetic, bags, accessories, home deco, you name it ;)

Please do prepare to spend if you intended to shop here.
Otherwise you will be like us, doing window shopping most of the time heh
(hope Malaysia Ringgit appreciates so we have stronger buying power...)


We spent quite some hours there. And since we are all the time underground,
it's impossible to tell the time unless you check your watch/phone.


It's about time for dinner!
(so it happened that this is a food post)

Any EXO-L (a.k.a. EXO fans) here, please raise your hands!
Then maybe you should be interested to the place we are heading here.

Apparently School Food was once featured in EXO's variety show <EXO Showtime>.
(check out the screenshots below)








Alright, no doubt, this place is recommended by Cong Min XD
It's all about food + EXO, with love.



School Food @ Garosugil, Sinsa

**how to get to this location : take metro/subway to Sinsa Station, Exit 8**
Address : 서울특별시 강남구 도산대로 139
Operating Hours : 10:00~23:00

**side note**
"We gotta try out the cheese sweet potatoes. Lay had them." said CM.
"Oh really, then we must have it." I replied.
......
"Do you serve cheese sweet potatoes here? Because I don't see it in the menu." I asked the waiter.
"We don't serve it at this moment. Sorry."
......
NAWWWW this couldn't be happening.
Then when do they serve that dish?
IDK simply 'cause I couldn't continue the conversation >_<
Probably during daytime, I think...

Anyway so we ordered a kimbap/sushi set.
(sorry I didn't jot down the name @@)
Which costs us KRW7,500.








The lighting inside is rather dim.
It's impossible to take a decent photo of the dish under such lighting.
Bear with me. In fact, the dish might looks dark and not appetizing,
it's not the case at all. But still, I would say it's so-so.

Coming to sushi, still I would prefer Japanese.

After we finished eating, we spent some time walking down Garosugil
(a.k.a Europe in Seoul, or the shady street)

**side note**
Cosmetic brand "Skin Food" outlet in Garosugil is known for the brand outlet-ambassador.
Meaning to say, this particular outlet is mostly featured in brand advertisement.
Theoretically, you should get more discounts and offers in this outlet than others.


One more thing to do before I can call the day off.
It is non-other than visiting Big Hit Entertainment company,
whom BTS is currently signed under to.
OMGEEE I'm super-duper excited!

From Garosugil to Big Hit Entertainment company building,
its like 15-20 mins walking, slightly up the hill.
(even now I can still visualize the road with eyes close)

For those who are interested to know what app I used during the trip,
it is Naver Map btw.
(I will write a separate and detailed blog post about it later on)


School Food Garosugi > Big Hit Entertainment





Here we are!
Opps, seemed like there are people still awake. Lights on.
(Suga, I'm here to send you some late night snacks. Come down and take it! jkjk :3)





In fact, Big Hit Ent. is sharing the building with some other non-entertainment related companies.
(how interesting...)








Don't get me wrong. I didn't do these drawings @.@
Apparently many hard-core fans had been here before and they left some "hints" behind.
Honestly, I felt sorry for the building owner. This shouldn't be something to proud of.
Be a good citizen. Don't vandalize public/private goods.

**side note**
We stayed there for a good full hour. How crazy it sounds right?
We saw staffs and anonymous van coming in and go. No signs of people who I familiar with.
Meanwhile, there are 4 other girls, just like us, waiting beside.
Coincidentally, from the other side, the two Chinese girls were able to spot Rap Monster.
He walked fast and entered the building in a vast.
And all this happened just 50m away from us, yet we missed.
(what a shame...)
Btw it was Rapmon's birthday on the next day.
Thinking back now, maybe they are practicing "Blood, Sweat, Tears" at that time :D
Who knows :/
