A date with Yan Hui! Long awaited!
Met her at noon, and we started off with shopping. I wanted to get some stuff from metro but we went to dfs to check out the prices first. To ensure value-for-money 👍🏻
After walking dfs, we had lunch at omakase burger chain at wisma before continuing our shopping. After lunch, we walked to 313. Grabbed a drink before my shopping at centrepoint. I bought just 4 products but it costs me enough for me to be entitled to a luggage with just a $10 top up. After my shopping, we continue our walk towards plaza singapura. We walked non-stop to digest our meal and drinks. It’s really very filling. Our dinner at Coco Ichibanya. My L5 versus her L1 curry 😬 I am a chili padi!!!
I almost finished those rice 😱 We then bought starbucks before heading home by bus. YH introduced me to a new drink – Matcha Espresso Fushion! Best of both world! Totally love it 😍
Busses outside plaza singapura were all quite packed. So we walked back towards somerset (earlier busstops) to board our bus.
I had an enjoyable day out with YH! I haven’t had such relaxing day, not worrying about anything, just eat, drink and talk! Love you 😘
Wednesday is the designated day for me to meet up with the boyfriend for a meal. Now that I have lesson in the evening, it seems like it is a better alternative for me to travel down to have lunch with him instead of him rushing down for dinner.
And we had vietnamese food today!
I was looking through the menu and was excited over seeing the word “bun cha”. Haha it is not what I am looking for but still very nice! That’s our lunch. My bun cha and his beef pho.
PHO 99 Vietnamese Delight @ Amoy St.
Very packed during lunch time but the turn over is fast. Food was served very fast as well. So no problem with staying in the queue and you will be done in less than an hour.
The bf said he has gotten some vouchers to Issho Izakaya, and so despite the distant (for me), we have decided to go try it out.
Issho Izakaya is located in Kallang Wave Mall which is located at Stadium MRT Station (Circle Line). A Japanese restaurant with quite a goof variety of food.
It was a Wednesday, and the restaurant had their man’s day promotion whereby the table with a man can get a 30% discount off your bill and the beer is going at a discounted rate as well. *I vaguely remembered it was $1 for the 2nd bottle and onwards.
WL’s has a voucher which entitles us to a 50% off a $100 Bill. After much deliberation, we decided to use his voucher instead of getting the in-house promotion. $100 seems a lot at first but it is just nice to fill our entire table for 2. All these worth $100.50 in total. I simply love my waygu beef served chilled and the crunchy Kawahagi Yaki. Not forgetting the Sashimi! The bf had Chirashi Don as his main and shared all the side dishes.
Totally pampered for the day.
The person who served us, feifei hana, is a cheerful and chatty young lady. She made recommendation and gave us her opinions. Helped us with the photo and complimented me. Good to have such an extrovert staff brightening up the atmosphere.
I was telling CX that a classmate of mine reminded me of him and so I contacted him to say Hi! After saying Hi, we can’t simply leave it as that right? So we met up for lunch the very next day. Just so happen our schedule allows the impromptuness. Or maybe he accommodated my schedule?! HAHA! As always…
We couldn’t decide where and what to eat. After him suggesting some places and me planning the lunch into my schedule, I decided to bring him to Botak Jones at Clementi.
Botak Jones, a place where I first went, back in my university day. They used to have good reputation, serving nice cajun chicken with nice chunky fries. After almost a decade, the cajun chicken is still juicy and nice but the fries no longer chunky.
But, it is still worth a visit. For the cajun chicken. I had mine, breast meat. Tada! And that’s us.
I am back to Namiseom Island, in a different season, with a different person, and that makes it a different experience all in all.
Going to Namiseom Island isn’t at all difficult by public transport but it definitely took us quite a bit of time. First of all, we took their subway from where we are staying (Apgujeong Station) to Gapyeong Station along the Gyeongchun Line. That is more than an hour ride on the subway.
Upon reaching Gapyeong Station, unlike what I did in 2013, Sis and I took a taxi to the Nami Island Ferry Terminal instead of hopping onto the 6,000Won Shuttle Bus. It is advisable to only make use of their Shuttle Bus Services if you are visiting more than 1 destination/attraction along the serviced route. Taxi costs us less than 4,000Won/trip. Upon reaching, we are surrounded by tons of tourists and locals. It is, one word, noisy. We proceeded to buy our Ferry & Entrance Ticket to Namiseom Island. And we are on board! We took a photo out in the sun before hiding indoor. Didn’t managed to take a photo at the Entrance as there were simply too many people obstructing views. Here’s our 1st photo in Namiseom Island with a Christmas Tree. I was wondering why is it a Christmas Tree when it is JULY. We took some photos before entering the more-exciting places of Namiseom Island. Done with some touring and settled for our lunch. Our tuna bento rice and kimchi pancake. Its yummy! Really in need of Ice Cream to save us! Yeah! We managed to get some photos taken at the Entrance before going back to main land.
And it is another long travel back to Seoul Shopping district – Myeongdong. Our last day of shopping to finish all our Korean Won. It started drizzling after some shopping and so we hide into a BBQ Place for Dinner. It is quite a famous BBQ Place. Satisfied with our Dinner and continue with more shopping. We have already buy enough of cosmetics and got nowhere else to spend our money. So we decided to buy more tidbits as sovenirs. Managed to find an underground mart selling Korean Tidbits but it is at a higher price as compared to Lotte Mart. Well, what to do??? Haha!
After leaving the mart, my last stop is at OST to buy watches! Went home with bags of buys and started packing out luggages! Packed a total of 4 luggages (2 of my own and 2 of sis’s). That’s the problem you faced travelling with a baby sis who don’t have the skill of packing luggage.
