Seoul Day 6

Went to a restaurant in Myeongdong that was recommended to me by a friend for lunch.

Dessert at Chocolateria San Churro.

Rest time at Deux Cremes in Garosugil.

The green tea tiramisu was sold out so we had this fruit tart instead. It was all right but nothing compared to Japanese fruit tarts.
Yummy sweet potato latte. Tom N Toms one was nicer imo.

Then at night we had dinner at the food court in COEX Mall.

We got the last plate of kimchi fried rice! I think this cost about W7000.

     LOL looking at this entry it looks like we did nothing but eat for the day.

Miu Miu Spring/Summer 2012 Campaign ft. Mia Wasikowska

This purse reminds me of the harlequin bags Miu Miu had in 2008 (iirc)! *Wants*

The coat is so qt!

Their Valentine's Day stuff is also super cute.

It kinda reminds me of the stuff the Japanese brand Samantha Thavasa makes tho.

Day 5 - Yeongyang Centre & Cheonggyecheon Stream

First up, lunch at Yeongyang Centre, apparently the oldest restaurant in Myeongdong and known for its roasted chicken. As luck would have it, a busload of tourists dropped into the restaurant just as we were about to enter. Fortunately, the place was quite big so we didn't really have to wait for long.

The chicken's skin was really nice and crispy!
The soup had nothing on Tosokchon imo! But the chicken tasted better since they use younger chickens here.
Some chai tea latte at Doota. We sat outdoors cos we were too lazy to remove our coats lol.
Doota at night.
Dinner was a giant piece of pork chop from some shop in Myeongdong. I think it was called Namsan #1 pork chop or something.
Night stroll.
There were a line of horses pulling carriages at the side of the road. Twas cute but they looked like they were freezing their butts off, poor things :(
Sweet potato latte from Tom N Toms, loved it! Btw, where did all the Tom N Toms cafes in SG go?!
Cheonggyecheon stream, which was actually within walking distance of our hotel but somehow took us forever to find lol.

Some icicles on a tree, only this particular tree had icicles on it, strange...

Chanel Accordion Flap

Guhhh I really want this purse! I can't stop buying bags, it's a sickness, I swear...

Klipsch S3 Headphones

The Sony PIIQ headphones (MDR-PQ5) were absolutely horrendous (couldn't get them to fit my ears, horrible sound) so I went out and bought this on a whim from epicentre while waiting there for someone.

They're actually really good! Sound quality is great, pretty decent noise isolating function and the oval ear tips mean they fit really snugly in your ear, it's like touching my ear drums or something.

PS Cafe @ Paragon

Have been wanting to try out PS Cafe for a while and finally had the time to go earlier this week.

PS Turkey Cranberry Sandwich ($21). Since it was my first time dining here, I was pleasantly surprised by the decent portions of the food. Glad we ordered just one to share, leaving just enough room for dessert. The sandwich was great, but then again, you can't go wrong with turkey ham, cheese and cranberry sauce. I didn't really care for the salad, wish they had a side of fries instead, but this is definitely a healthier option.

Next up was the dish that I was really looking forward to trying, the Double Chocolate Blackout ($14.90). Sad to say, it wasn't as impressive as I thought it would be. It wasn't as moist as I would have liked and, dare I say it, Chilis' Chocolate Molten Cake was better. It was just kinda dry to me, and not warm or rich enough. The ice cream served was also nothing special. From the number of recommendations on HGW for this dessert, I expected a little more from it *Kanye shrug*

Also, I wish the serving for the cakes wasn't so huge. I get that it's probably meant to be shared, but tbh, I would much prefer getting two different smaller sized cakes to share rather than just one large one, that way you could try more.

Day 4 - Apgujeong (Butterfinger Pancakes, Meal Top & Caffe Bene)

Day 4, aka the day I saw snow for the first time. There were only tiny snowflakes, barely bigger than specks of dust, but IT WAS GLORIOUS! Too bad it was too tiny to even capture on camera.

Anyways, since breakfast wasn't included in our hotel stay this time, we decided to go to Butterfinger Pancakes for some American breakfast!

It was a weekday morning but the place was packed! Luckily a group of people left a little while after we got in so we managed to get seats.

The most delicious milkshake ever! I forget the name, but I think it was supposed to be a mix of their all-time favorites.
Giant breakfast platter. Perfect for people who can't decide on what to get, it has both sweet and savory portions.
Banana pancakes.
Wow, I'm kinda impressed that the iPhone managed to take such a decent macro shot of the gooey inside of the pancake!

10,000 calories later, we shopped around Apgujeong, it was definitely different from the streets of Myeongdong and Dongdaemun. Here we saw a lot of people toting designer handbags. Hermes, Balenciaga, Givenchy, LV, it was like being back in Singapore lol. Anyway the designer stuff here is a lot more expensive than even Singapore. A Balenciaga mini pompon which sells for about S$1600 in Singapore costs about S$2200 here.

Cute dogs in a pet shop!

On the way back to the subway station, we shared a hot red bean soup at Meal Top at Hyundai Department Store.

It was good but I think it cost like S$10!! Pretty expensive for some red beans...
