17-21 October 2012
Seoul was a blur. Maybe because we’ve been here before in 2010. It was just shopping, meeting friends, making friends, listening to good music, and shopping again. All is good.
We were in Myeongdeong when we met the siblings selling bags. We were looking at bags when we heard “Sepuluh ribu, sepuluh ribu..” He just said ten thousand (won) in Indonesian! We ended up talking, and joking and laughing… (and buying a few bags of course)
With Siblings selling bags in Myeongdeong
The younger sibling even tried to feed us cake. When we refused, he did aegyo! And I thought it only happens in dramas and movies. Okay. Noona will eat, ok?
They even pasted the sticker we gave them on their drawer. I also got a discout from the kind and pretty Unnie… 🙂
We went back to the Glasses shop to collect our glasses which we ordered on D1…
Oppa brought us to eat lunch the next day! He brought us to eat Vegetarian Bibimbap!
We even got discounts, and free gifts.
Such nice people. First met them in 2010. Met them again in 2012. (Liana met them again in 2013, and I met them again in 2014, on 2 separate trips to Seoul)
Hooray for friendship!
We went to various cafes…
Lomo Cafe in Hongdae
We were sitting in the balcony of Holly’s coffee in Myeongdeong when we saw this.
Went to alleys and flea markets… and Shopped some more..
Hongdae Free Market
We also caught the non-verbal musical, JUMP!
We also sat at Han River, and walked along Cheongyecheon stream… and hung out at Hongdae on Saturday night and listened to talented buskers. We did a lot of coffee-drinking and people-watching.
By the end of the 16 days, Seoul was a blur, but we had a good time.
The early morning of D17, we headed to the airport… and we wondered, if we will ever have another trip such as this again.
