Background – one coworker had dinner plans with friend. One co worker got sick. I am left alone to do damage in Seoul. Went back to the hotel first to change. Asked concierge where I should go. She suggested I go to Hongdae. Since Hongdae was one of the places I want to visit, I decided to give it a go.
was pretty excited to be honest. Korea is not exactly known for english, although a lof people do know mandarin. So i guess i can get by.
With a budget of about $50USD (about 60K KRW), I made my way to the metro. Here’s a recap:
The concierge gave me a map of the metro system.
Did not even now where i was at. Got her to circle the closest station to the hotel and the station to Hongdae. Good thing was both were relatively close to each other (about 5 stations apart, on the same line). As such, embarked on my journey to the metro.
Random, arrived at the metro and saw this lady with puppies and a box. and she just sat there. had to take a picture.
Took another picture of the metro system map. This time it just shows the green line (line number 2) in which I was going to ride on. Metro system was pretty nice. Similar to HK. Nothing spectacular, though I took a few more creeper pics, as follows:
haha. anyways arrived at Hongik University station, and got off.
okay..to be honest i am not sure if this is Hongdae. Hondae is suppose to be an area close to the university, where people party. There are a lot of bars. I am just not sure if I was at Hongdae, because I was just told to get off at this station. hahah. so. I am going to assume I went to Hongdae. Until someone with more korean knowledge tells me otherwise.
Walked around with the mission to find food. And then I realized I was f*cked. Everything was in Korean. lol. Nobdoy knew english. Not exactly sure how i was going to order…my back up plan was to just randomly point to a picture in the menu.. luckily after walking for 20 minutes I found a resto with english translation of the menu..so i went in there..
and of course they didn’t know english. got the menu..and just pointed at some meat dish. lol. here it is.
Yes. It was delicious.
After my meal, I had to go to the washroom. hahah.
Observe the following picture:
YA SERIOUSLY how the hell am i suppose to know which one is for the dudes and which is the dudettes!?!?!?!?
luckily…i saw a guy came out from the righ tone…so..i went to the right one…..
After meal walked around some more. Since I was close to the university, I thought I go check it out and take a picture. and so I did. tada:
Went back to the hotel afterwards, and started typing this. haha.
Korea’s been good, and fun. It’s a National holiday on Friday..but..we wlil be working..from the hotel..but I believe we are going to party on friday.
Of course we had to go Gangnam.
Yes……also will be going to DMZ on saturday..that should be interesting..
Till next time laters
