Still on a Seoul high after writing about my first entry few weeks back. Since our itinerary was packed, I decided to write it down into three parts so I won’t really bombard you with way too many photos of me. Heehee!
Anyway if you’re planning to stay somewhere in Jung-gu and would want to shop til you drop I highly recommend Hotel 28. It’s a boutique hotel that is really within the shopping district that is Myeongdong. You can read more about it HERE.
It’s a plus that they have breakfast sets you can order aside from the usual buffet offerings. Love this Bibimbap set that I inhaled alongside my usual brekkie faves.
After a hearty meal we were out for the whole day to explore more of Seoul. First stop: Grevin Museum.
23, Eulji-ro, Jung-gu, Seoul
Ticket price: 13,000-18,000 KRW (cheaper if you purchase online or for a family of 3 or 4)
Sunday-Thursday: 09:30 to 19:00 (Last Admission 18:15)
Friday-Saturday: 09:30 to 21:00 (Last Admission 20:15)
I honestly thought it was a cultural museum until I Googled it and learned it was a wax museum. Get ready for a few photos of me fangirling over these celebrities, well wax figured celebrities that is. Heehee.
Of course I didn’t pass on being side by side with Steve Jobs.
Bruce Lee, Jackie Chan, Silvestre Stallone, Bruce Willis, Ocean’s Eleven’s Brad Pitt and George Clooney, Pope Francis, Albert Einstein, Leonardo Da Vinci, Al Pacino, Steven Spielberg & ET, The Queen, POTUS Obama, Michael Jordan, Tiger Woods, Andy Warhol, Marilyn Monroe, Cristiano Ronaldo, Angelina Jolie, Madonna, Rain, Meryl Streep, John Lennon to name a few.
Because Andy Warhol pop-art happened! Heehee.
Each floor of Grevin Museum has an interactive display you can do or participate. Here’s Kisty & I playing the Quiz of Genii.
Sungit face says it all: HANGRY! 😀
After a fun morning going around Grevin Museum, we were starving (or was it mainly just me? Hahaha) so off we went to lunch at Dookki Tteokbokki.
Jonggkak Station, Seoul
The mommas’ Tteokbokki! We just put everything we liked and had our sauces separately. I like it hot so I mixed a bunch of sauces to try. Love how it went well with the dish. Also loved the hot plate of melted cheese (my weakness!) even though I am intolerant to dairy. Hahahuhu. Yes, I indulged and YOLO-ed my way while I was in Korea!
Sarah, Kisty, me, Ava, Crissey and Tricia
See the difference a hearty meal can make? We’re all smiles now. Heehee.
After lunch we head out to get our nails done. We were divided into two groups: one was sent off to Dashing Diva while the other was sent to MDB Korea. I was part of the latter.
MDB NAIL KOREA
Contact number +82 2-3448-0231
One of the decisions I always find hard to take: choosing what color of nails to get! Heehee.
I swear I fell asleep and I think I was snoring loudly but I couldn’t care less because it was one of the best nail services I’ve tried in my life! My nail therapist efficiently cleaned my nails in under 30 minutes and she applied the gel polish effortlessly too. Such a pro that I wanna bring her here in Manila and put up my own nail salon.
Always opting for white or nude nails. And because we were in Korea, I was brave enough to do an accent finger.
Spot the pop of silver.
My MDB Korea gel nails <3
Seoul is so charming! We witnessed autumn’s tail end just as the country was about to enter winter. Autumn colored trees mixed with concrete gives that charming character.
Wanted that falling leaves effect and since there was none these two ladies, Kisty and Crissey volunteered to throw a few just so Tricia can get my perfect shot! Hahaha. Talk about teamwork!
Here’s the finished product! Hahaha. Thanks for the support girls 😉
Sharing the last of our Seoul trip on another post soon! Thanks again KTO Manila and Fly PAL for arranging everything. 🙂
