Visting Korea, Day Two!

IMG_4103

Day started with visit to Gyeongbokgung Palace. This palace is nearest to our hotel, merely 5 minutes cab ride down! 

There were many guards dressed in colorful hanboks! And so, of course many any pictures with them! (:

As i was taking the above photo with the guard, i heard him sniffle a bit. Must be so cold, standing out in the cold that he's having runny nose yet unable to move much. 

We see these cute lil ones the moment we entered the Palace.

Children, dressed in hanboks on excursions!!! (: Couldn't resist not taking a shot with them.

Tickets were just $3 for an adult! I expected it to be more pricey.

Definitely worth the money to visit this place, at just $3, we spent about 2 hours in there. There are may palaces to visit within Gyeongbokgung Palace.

Walked back to our hotel area for lunch.

OOTD! (:

Stopped by this Korean Restaurant because we saw many office crowd entering. Can't be bad if there are so many local patrons right? (:

Onions!

Eugene with his beer at lunch time, again.

The restaurants in Korea expect everyone to order at least 1 main. So if there are 3 of us, we have to order 3 even if 1 person is not dining. This was the bad thing because we can never seem to finish.

Beef Ribs!

BEST BEEF we have ever had. The beef was so well marinated, it makes me salivates just thinking about it.

A lot of kimchi. Looked and tasted abit cause we were all intended to buy back to Singapore.

IMG_4276
Hskimchi is good! 

IMG_4279

We ended up buying Kimchi from Hskimchi at the last day cause it's the first and best we tried. 

IMG_4280

Changed back into boots cause the night was cold. Back to the streets of Myeongdong! Love Myeongdong at nights, shopping outdoor with shiok weather!

SPAO

We went to SPAO cause Eugene wants to get some SNSD from Everysing! 

IMG_4298

Such a cosy fan shop right! He left empty handed but we shopped SPAO a bit. The clothes there are very nice and so many levels. Eugene left with quite a number of clothes. He wanted to go back there but it was closed already. 

IMG_4301
Lotte Hotel Handphones~

This so good. We get free incoming calls so here's how we get each other in Korea. Because we can't seem to get any prepaid cards. We were told it takes a week to be activated and their 7-11 stores don't carry any. 

Dinner time, Korean again lol! 

IMG_4304
Steam egg

First time trying this Korean way. Good cause of the cold day. Veron was telling us that this is usually given when there are kids dining in. So i am the kid? hehe!
