Hotel Maui in Seoul

I have always looked forward to travelling out of the country whenever it is possible and as of the moment, South Korea has been my most frequented travel destination for the past two years because I just love this country so much!

Whenever I travel, I make it a point to try new things so during my fourth visit to Seoul last November 2016, my friend and stayed at Hotel Maui which is one subway station away from Dongdaemun. Continue reading “Hotel Maui in Seoul”

My Happiest Memory in Seoul

I have been to South Korea three times since 2015 and every trip is memorable because I have always had new experiences each time. Seoul will always be my happy place so wherever I go, whoever I’m with and whatever I do, I will  always be happy just by being there but if I were to choose only one, my happiest memory in Seoul so far was the time I spent with CNBLUE where my friends and I have experienced our best fangirling moments for almost 24 hours with our favorite Korean band!

Zaza Backpackers Hostel in Seoul

On my first trip to Seoul, I booked my accommodation at Zaza Backpackers. I have a friend who is a loyal client of them. She gave positive feedback about them and she always stay here whenever she goes to Seoul. Since I am a solo traveler on a budget, her feedback made me feel at ease even if it was also my first time to stay in a dorm room. Continue reading “Zaza Backpackers Hostel in Seoul”

CNBLUE Blueming at MNET M! Countdown

It was not planned nor expected. It just happened. It was like a dream.  It was meant to be…

That was how my friends and I felt when our travel dates coincided with CNBLUE‘s comeback schedule with their 6th mini album Blueming. CNBLUE had been to Manila for Blue Moon World Tour and Can’t Stop World Tour but Philippines was not included in their Come Together concert tour last year. There were a lot of things that happened which almost got our trip cancelled due to personal reasons but it turned out to be one of the best trip we all had because we were able to watch our favorite band perform live! Continue reading “CNBLUE Blueming at MNET M! Countdown”

Fangirling over CNBLUE

I keep coming back to South Korea because there is so much more to see and do especially in Seoul. But aside from immersing myself in Korean culture and visiting tourist spots, part of my itinerary would always include something related to K-Pop. CNBLUE is one of my favorite band and that would be quite obvious now if you have been frequenting this blog as well as my Instagram and YouTube channel. Let me tour you and let us retrace together CNBLUE’s footsteps in Seoul! Continue reading “Fangirling over CNBLUE”

Miss Lee Cafe

Happy Valentine’s Day everyone! What are your plans for today?  If you are in Seoul right now or is planning to visit Seoul soon, you may want to try Miss Lee Cafe (별다방미스리).

I am a big fan of CNBLUE, most specifically their leader, Yong Hwa. During my first trip to Seoul, I went to Bukchon Hanok Village and  visited the traditional Korean house where Park Shin Hye and Jung Yong Hwa lived in the Korean TV drama Heartstrings. On my second trip to Seoul, my friends and I had a late dinner at Miss Lee Cafe in Insadong where Yong Hwa and Seo Hyun of Girls Generation went for a date during their virtual marriage for MBC’s We Got Married.

Myeongdong Global Hostel in Seoul

For my first trip in Korea last April 2015, I originally booked for one bed in a dormitory room at Zaza Backpackers Hostel one month before my trip through their website and I received a confirmation the following day.

Upon my arrival, I was informed that I will be staying at Myeongdong Global Hostel which is just one corner apart from Zaza Backpackers. Continue reading “Myeongdong Global Hostel in Seoul”

The 2nd Seoul Kimchi Festival

Kimchi is undeniably a staple in Korean cuisine because no meal is complete without it as it is one of the main side dish which identifies the uniqueness of Korean food among others. It was not love at first bite for me years ago when I got curious by how it tasted through the various Korean television dramas I have watched, but I have grown to love kimchi through the years. For me, eating my favorite gogi mandu (dumpling) and kimbap (seaweed rice roll) taste better with kimchi. Continue reading “The 2nd Seoul Kimchi Festival”

It was my second time in Seoul and my first time touring my friends  in my happy place, the country which I would always want to go back to…South Korea. We were very fortunate that our travel dates coincided with the 2015 Seoul Lantern Festival so I took this as an opportunity to introduce to them one of the many colorful festivities which characterizes Korean culture.
