Back to Day #25 in Korea!! :)

Day #25 was quite chill and we didn't really go much places like other days haha

Starting off with lunch after class, we went to Sinchon and picked out a random Korean BBQ restaurant to have some makchang and meatttttt

And while I was at Aritaum shopping, one of the SA approached YX and asked if we would like to get a complimentary gel manicure! 

The SA who did my nails was really kind and I went back to that store again another day to look for her when I went to Myeongdong again for some last minute shopping before we went back to SG haha (She gave me lots of good freebies when I went back 2nd time haha)

After shopping at Myeongdong, we then went to Apgujeong Rodeo Street (finally) which we failed to find our way to previously when we were in Apgujeong haha

Ewha Summer Studies Paris Croissant Apgujeong Rodeo Street Seoul South Korea lunarrive travel blog

There wasn't much people on the streets on that day. Not sure is it because of the gloomy weather or whether this area just doesn't have much people :/ But anyway we didn't managed to buy anything or whatsoever, really simply just walk around, take photos and bought a delicious croissant from Paris Croissant before we went back haha

You have to get a croissant from Paris Croissant when you visit Korea!! They have the best croissant I've ever tried so far seriously!! Recommended by YX's buddy haha

Ewha Summer Studies SM Entertainment F(X) Red Light Seoul South Korea lunarrive travel blog

After that, we went on to try to look for SM Entertainment since they were close by but again, we lost our way and we found this super gigantic poster of f(x) Red Light album instead of SM Entertainment lolol

Starting off with my breakfast which I eat almost everyday because this is the cheapest among all!!

800won bread from Paris Baguette!! This is what I always buy for breakfast and the only times I never buy them is either they are already sold out or on days where we will be leaving our dorms on a later time

After our lunch, we went back to Ewha and me and YX met up with our buddy to have dinner again haha 

This time she brought us to this restaurant where they serve lots of seafood dishes but we three got a medium Haemul Jjim - Seafood Stew and oh god, the serving is HUGE!!!!! :)

Look at the serving man omg!!! We three can't finish all of it at all haha

After that we still went to have some Bingsoo for desert even though we were freaking full lolol 

But this time round we didn't go to Sulbing, instead our buddy brought us to this bingsoo shop called Jokdubang which sells bingsoo that has healthier ingredients and toppings (a.k.a. fresh fruits) hahaha

And we ordered the strawberries one and holy moly, they taste god damn good and even better than Sulbing to be honest because the strawberries are sooooooo sweet!!!

If only Singapore's strawberries are that sweet too I would have been eating them every single day hahahahahaha
