Tteobboki Sisters In Seoul - Photobook 1

2 months back, Liz and I scooted off to Kimchi land for a good 6 days and it was one of the best trips I had! Liz was like a big sister and took great care of me :P She helped me with half my shopping bags all 6 days because I'm just weak like that. I slept in every morning while she went to the gym and she never fails to get me breakfast making sure I eat so I won't be grumpy hahaha <3 

We took the red eye flight and landed in Seoul bright and early (: Got a wifi egg then bought our airport limousine tickets (15,000 won each) to The Plaza Hotel located near Myeongdong. Its my 2nd time staying at The Plaza and I really like its location! Walk-able distance to Myeongdong within 5 minutes and just 3 minutes walk away from the City Hall Station. We decided to pamper ourselves and booked the suite that was about SGD500 a night (Photos below!) 

Check-in time for most hotels in Korea is from 2-3 so we dropped off our baggages at the hotel and headed to Itaewon, where my favourite "Banchan" (Also known as side dishes) is! :D Facing the road from IP Boutique hotel, turn left and walk straight until you see Cafe Benne (: Continue walking until you see an alley on your left. The signboard of the restaurant is in bright Orange so its pretty easy to spot. I don't know the exact address and can only try my best to describe the directions :( When you're there, just ask for the "Banchan" set! I'll usually order an extra steam egg to go with the meal (: That was a great meal to start our first morning in Seoul and Liz enjoyed herself as much as I did! 

We shopped around Myeongdong before slowly making our way back to the hotel for check-in! I remember changing into my PJs then plopping onto the bed while Liz headed straight for the gym. By the time I got up from my afternoon nap, it was time for dinner! We decided to take dinner nearby because we had party plans later in the night. I brought her to this seafood restaurant (A friend brought me there on my previous trip to Seoul) located in the Myeongdong shopping area and that was where we found the BEST SPICY CLAM SOUP *SLURPS*. It was so good, I can still remember how it tastes.  

The night saw us at Octagon with some friends who so happen to be in Seoul at that time too. We only got back at 7AM so I'll leave what happened in between to your imagination (:
