Day 6 – Gwangjang Market & Shopping Districts

It is a relaxing day where we took our time to prepare and sway towards the Gwangjang Traditional Market. Most of the stalls in there was not open even when we arrived after 9am.

According to some bloggers, there is a few must-eat at Gwangjang Market. Food such as Bindatteok (Fried Mung Bean Pancake) & Bimbimbap. The usuals such as Gimbap and Sticky Rice Cakes can be found there too. There is also raw beef served with egg yolk and live octopus too!

Sis & I only managed to try the Bindatteok which really doesn’t suit our taste buds. It is way too oily and most importantly I think we don’t really like mung bean. IMG_7580 IMG_7583 IMG_7584But having rice for breakfast is too heavy for us, hence, we just had this mung bean pancake to fill our stomach temporarily. The next time I am there, I will definitely try the raw beef with egg yolk. Super high in cholesterol but I think it is a must-try once in a life time. At least, once in my life time. Haha!

After having out bindatteok, we took the subway to Ewha Women’s University Station, where we walked around under the super hot sun to do our shopping! Roamed streets after streets and sort of “went missing” while walking out of Ewha towards another subway station.

Thankfully, we managed to walk to the nearby subway station and took it to Hongik University Station. The weather is SO HOT that we just had to rest in an air-conditioned place.

Personally, I don’t like either of them. HAHA! I don’t mind going back there again, but for something else.

After walking down the streets of Hongik University, the heat is really killing us to the max and so we decided to go back home and put down our shopping loots. IMG_7596 IMG_7595Along the way, we saw this events going on at Hondae. Everyone is there, well-equipped with water gun and having fun getting themselves drenched. Good Job!

We released our heavy burden at home and rest for awhile before heading down to Gangnam Station. We planned to do another round of shopping at the underground mall (to buy all the Korean artiste goodies!) and roamed the streets of Gangnam.

Dinner at a small place is surprisingly tasty. IMG_7617Lots of Carbs >_<

IMG_7618We just had to buy a thirst-quenching cup of COLD fruit juice. Full & Satisfied! (Especially after days of going without vegetables.)

That’s where I lost my subway T-money card too.
