After almost 2 hours playing,we left for our lunch. Both of us had no idea to where else we should spent our time, hence Do Kyung drove quite far from downtown to somewhere i totally forgot the name.Do Kyung told me that this place actually a pension town with beautiful western banglow. Pension is a term use for accommodation in South Korea and Japan for a guesthouse which usually a banglow/Hanok style house that people can rent the whole place. On the way to that place, we had our lunch at a nice Hanok style restaurant in the middle of nowhere, uhukss.. we are actually driving towards countryside where nothing around us except wide verse of farms. But expect nothing but the best outcome from something you never expected. The korean food served here is so classic!!! The ingredients used are high in quality. I bet normal restaurant will never served their food with that excellent ingredient. I end up with my favourite “Gajang Geejang” or raw crab marinated in soy sauce with a special rice.
We left the restaurant after a long break and arrived at the pension town around 30 minutes later. Usually if we are talking about pension it will consist one banglow managed by individual but this place really a town!!! I think more than 20 banglows with different themes was there. Fully equip with mini mart, sports area and etc. This is DAEBAK!!!! So beautiful and each banglow has their own swimming pool and barbecue area!!! it felt like walking down the road of Beverly Hills. I’m nowhere ether at Malaysia or South Korea.hahaha we rent a tricycle touring the town and imagining ourselves owning the houses 🙂 Anyway, it’s a perfect gate away for big family or group to be together during holiday.
Do Kyung would like to show me another amazing place called Jebu island. This island can be reach by road built in the middle of the sea .. it looks like a road rather than a bridge. However, you can cross the road only during low tide. When we reached there late afternoon, it was high tide and we can only saw half of the road which now hidden under the sea. Ughhh .. what happen if we are in the middle of the journey when the tide coming???? There must be some prevention done as i saw the main gate to the road was closed and guided by army!!!
After a quick shopping later that night and few hours sleep, we left around 4.30 am to catch my early flight back to Malaysia. Do Kyung ahhh … Komawo!!!! saranghae!!!! till we meet again !!! sob..sob…sob
We went out for our tour quite late today, lazily having our breakfast prepared by lovely Do Kyung. Today is the day where both of us will be kids again. With a bright smile like a student went to school trip, i tried Snow Slide!!!! Finally!!!!
Ahaks .. the first we noticed as we grab our tube that both of us were surrounded by kindergarten kids plus 4-5 teacher. We are the only adults who are eager to be in queue using the escalator to be up at the starting point. Basically the snow slide range was fully occupied by them.
Damn, i chicken out when it’s my turn to slide. Seems like the tube can turn around along the way down and zushhhh too fast. But the kids in-front of me was smiling and i can hear him screamed “It’s fun!!” when he slide down. How should i stop when it reached down? What will happen if i fell? But i guess it’s true that fear is when you doesn’t know. But after the first try, knowing that even when the tube turned will not going to caused me any harmed and to lower my feet as a brake when we almost reached the end lead me to another 10 tries!! I’m loving it!!!
Through Miss Han, i got to know Do Kyung. A korean friend who is 3 years younger than me and still studying to get her PHD at Hanyang University. She is a bubbly girl and love to made friends. Her long list friends from Malaysia, not a joke!!!
My second trip to Ansan, which around 1 hour away from Seoul by bus was the longest stay i had with her. This time from Gangneung, i took a bus to Ansan to spend my 2 days with her before i depart to Malaysia. That is how i get to know Ansan and experienced winter activities.
As i was roaming Ansan with a travel guide, i let my guard down and the results, i can’t remember the name most of places i went!!! So,forgive me… 🙂
Ido Wharf and Bundle of seafood Do kyung was hungry after finishing her days and later pick me up at Ansan bus station. So, she drove us to Ido (If i’m not mistaken) to have our dinner. The place we went was full with several buildings turned to be seafood restaurants. With beautiful lights and the worker trying to get the customers attention outside the shop, brighten my smile. i smell fresh seafood!!! Do Kyung insist to find the shop that she used to go and i bet she has her own reason for that. And later we was inside a small restaurant and Do Kyung start making her order. A big bowl of mix clams for grill and later will be accompanied by Kalguksu or noodle in seafood broth!!! wallalala..heaven!!! We ate like nobody business. As i can’t consume alcohol we both had our soda and dinner party korean style almost complete and later norebang for final course!!!
Buzzling Night at Ansan Downtown After the fulfilling dinner we drove back to Ansan downtown. The place was pack with youngsters. As most of the korean students finish their study routine quite late at night, i can see them everywhere having dinner, hanging out with friends and like us settling down having coffee at a super duper cute coffee shop. I sometimes amazed to see how different coffee shop can be found at South korea. This time we end up at a very creative shop where we can choose our own covered private space with different themes. We choosed a pink girlie room to have our coffee while having our special coffee. I bet you never tasted coffee with sweet potato flavor right??
It was quite late at night, almost 2 am when we end our day singing our heart out at Norebang or karaoke. Do Kyung doesn’t like dance group which i crazy but more towards jazz music. I less prefer women singer but Do Kyung love them. But we end up love this one song by Noel, I miss you which we sang countless time for the whole 2 days.
