Solely Seoul Day 1

Saturday, June 15, 2013

Oooh..getting abit dusty here.

So much events and milestone had happened within this short span of time. It helped that shopping buddies and I had planned for a 6D5N retail therapy session in Seoul sometime ago and this trip allowed me to have some "me" time. During this period of time, hubby was also away to his incentive trip to Europe again. So thankfully, we have a supportive family helpline when the parents were not around to tend to the kids.

We stayed in Metro Hotel and it's awesome. It comes with free breakfast and Wi-Fi (both in rooms and lobby and that is important since we love uploading photos to instagram and FB!!) and located right smack in Myeongdong, a buzzing and vibrant shopping area and importantly, few minutes walk away from the subway.

And we gotten a welcome gift too :)

Oh yes, do email to Metro Hotel at directly to get the rooms instead of searching through the hotel booking sites.

We touched down in Seoul in the evening.After settling down at the Hotel , we combed the streets of Myeondong and also in search for one of our "To Eat" place.

Can you feel the buzz?

Wanbijib specialised in Grilled Meat. The grilled pork and beef were juicy, tender and flavourful!! They Korean cold noodles is also a must try - choose the spicy one (though not really spicy)!! and the spicy fermented beancurd soup that we were so hooked with! The kind Chinese waiter gave us another bowl on the house. 

After a satisfying meal!

After eating, we started our shopping spree! Laneign, Etude House, Tony Moly, Face Shop, Missha, It's Skin are all over Myeongdong. So, we did one round of clearing of beauty products first!

Would you buy PSY masks?
Oh yes! Metro Hotel was also great cos it was also walking distance to Korea Hospital! CHEY! Why would you want to be near hospital when you are on holiday!! So you think! Unfortunately, my buddy was not well and so in pain that she needed to go hospital. We stupidly paid 20000 won for a taxi driver to go one round when it's only few minutes walk away.
