Seoul family trip 2014: Day 1.

You can read about Day 3 here.

Am going to blog about our Seoul trip again! This time properly start from Day 1 hehe.

I am a really light sleeper, so usually I will take half a sleeping pill (very light dosage) if I am taking a night flight and have to be on the go the next day. This way at least I am well-rested and am ready for the start of my trip. We took a night flight, and I stupidly forgot to take a sleeping pill from my dad (who sat quite far from me)!! So I ended up being REALLY awake for most of the night, and I think I only slept about an hour max during the whole 7 hour journey. T_T

By the way, since we are on the subject of flights, I need to complain about MAS service!!When the air stewardess served me breakfast, I accidentally dropped my fork, so I politely asked her whether I can have another one. She glared at me, and raised her voice: "Why are you so careless?".


I was really sleepy, so I could only gape at her with no comeback (normally I will give her a piece of my mind wtf). She saw me with my jaw agape, and realized that she has gone too far, so she quickly shoved a fork into my hands and walked away.

Seriously WTF man! Another time while taking another MAS night flight, it was still really early and most passengers were sleeping, but it was time to serve breakfast. This air stewardess (fat and old btw) walked down the aisle and dragged her hand down the side of the seats roughly, while screaming "WAKE UP! WAKE UP! TIME TO EAT BREAKFAST!" and everyone woke up with a jolt. -___-

Anyway, on to happier things. We reached our hotel, but we weren't allowed to check in first, sniff. So we went to get ready at the lobby restroom. And when I say I get ready, I really mean washing up and changing plus putting on make-up and doing up our hair, hehehe.

I was really impressed with myself 'cause I looked so good despite only having 1 hour of sleep the night before! :O

This time with Teeny. All these photos are unedited!!! But still I look better than the times when I have 8 hours of sleep. -_-

Another one. Either there's something in Seoul's air that make people extra pretty, or I need to sleep less to achieve good looks wtf.

Since our hotel is really near to Myeongdong, we decided to head there! That way, it is easier to go back to the hotel in the afternoon to properly check in (and get a much-needed nap T_T).

Bought strawberries from a random stall and sneaked it into the cafe where we were having breakfast.

The strawberries are so HUGE and RED and JUICE and SWEET! I buy Korean strawberries back home, but in no way they can compare to the ones here. :O

Outfit of the day! The weather was really nice, so although I actually brought out a blazer, there was no need for it at all.

Lunch was Myeong Dong mandoo, which is like Korean gyoza. It's really popular with locals and tourists alike, and it's even featured in Lonely Planet! It is quite similar to Chinese food, which suits my mom wtf.

With mummy! She is very proud of her dressing so she asked to take a photo of her. Usually when she travels, she will be dressed more for comfort, but this time she claims to have turned over a new leaf, haha. But I highly approve of her dressing this time around! :D

And you can choose to add cheese and rice into it!

Then it becomes cheese-baked rice. Yummy!

No more photos after that 'cause we were too busy shopping at Dongdaemun, haha.
