My friend who was celebrating her birthday and at the same time her and her husband’s 5th wedding anniversary, one random night, was looking through old pictures of our laboracay trip 2 years ago. Nostalgia got the best of her so 26 of us decided to celebrate in Boracay and it was one helluva trip!
We rented a bus to accommodate all 30 of us (lol).
And the party started waaaay too early.
Pit stop at Ramboys! Mouthwatering-melts-in-your-mouth liempo for lunch. Yum!
Off to the island!
Checked in, lazed around for a while and met everyone around sunset. We stayed at Beachcomber in Station 1.
The only thing pretty about this place. Boracay sunsets are the best.
Body clock woke me up pretty early so went down, had breakfast and did a little sunbathing. I think I overcooked myself. Waited for the rest to arrive from Cebu, Capiz and Iloilo and call time was 5:30pm.
One hour difference from PH, we arrived round 8PM-ish Korean time.
1.5 hours from Incheon airport to our hotel. We stayed at Ramada Hotel in Dongdaemun and was greeted with -2C weather.
Ate at Two Two Chicken near our place and off to a midnight hunt for bingsu. Unfortunately, to no avail.
Check out their “paper” cups.
It was a white and cold Valentine’s day ♥
Say hi to our Korean friend John lol.
Elysian Gangchon Ski Resort
So fun sledding with kids (hahaha)
We booked a tour for Nami Island and the ski resort, can’t remember how much it costs but more or less it was almost Php4,000.
Bingsu search over!
Happy Valentine’s Day!
Shopping capital but Korea isn’t cheap. It’s nice that the subway station is very accessible where we’re staying.
Namsan Seoul Tower
Got lost going here (haha). Tallest tower in Seoul with a spectacular view. Cable car costs 8,000KRW and entrance to the tower is 12,000KRW.
But first, coffee.
No drink, no upstairs.
A must see when you go to South Korea, this is, they say, the most beautiful and the largest royal palace situated in the northern part of Seoul. It also houses the National Palace Museum of Korea and the National Folk Museum within the premises. Entrance fee is 8,500KRW.
How their subway stations look like.
After roaming around the palace, we went back to Myeongdong to lunch on some crazy ribs
and street food!
Went to Lotte Mart to buy some pasalubongs
and strolled around the History and Culture Park a block away from our hotel.
Who said we’re tired?
Our last night with some ice cream and strawberries.
Our flight the next day was 9PM so lazed around til check-out, had bacon burger, fries and chicken for lunch (away from all the kimchi), bought make-up and headed to the airport.
Chance passenger for the 4:20a flight to Bacolod and they give me this seat. Awesome!
No dull moments with my crazies, til the next Feb adventure!
