This morning I met a friend for coffee and to help him with English studies(he’s preparing for the toeic test) and had lunch with a girlfriend I hadn’t seen in nearly 5 years in Gangnam.

We had both changed so much and we were squealing and chattering like little girls when we found each other. Neither of us would have guessed we would reunite in Korea! It was great sharing about what we had both been up to.

We ate at Seoga & Cook (I know, I know, of all places in Gangnam) and had the Pork steak salad between us; we were totally stuffed by the end! Afterwards we roamed trying to find a cafe and we settled for Twosome place.. I really am not a huge fan of the Gangnam station area. There’s seriously nothing to see and ridiculously busy on the weekends. I got such a headache weaving through the crowd. I had a good time nonetheless, reuniting with a close unni!

Last night we gathered at Hongdae(short for Hongik University) for a meal before one of our friends went off to China for a month!
The area was super busy (as per usual) and we ended up going to Bulia, a Chinese hotpot place because there was a 1 hour waiting list at the another place that we planned to go to. Though, even there we had to wait 30 minutes because we were a big group. 
I did not expect the prices to be so steep though; definitely didn’t think it was worth 18500krw(~20aud) per person! It was very similar to hotpot I always had back at home however, and I appreciated every bite.
Thursday party was our next stop for drinks; gawd I love this place. I’m not much of a drinker but the casual vibe and good music to dance to always takes me back there. 
After we got all our drinks, we spotted a massive cup of beer - it was nearly as big as my head! We just had to take a picture with it.
On our way to the subway station we had some late night snacks - tteokbokki and fishcake!(I’ll have pictures next time, I promise!) I narrowly caught the last subway home because of the random snack stop.

What up! So I’m pretty sure it’s been over a year since I last tumblr’ed.. On a whim I’ve decided to start some sort of a blog about shenanigans I get up to in Korea :) 

Last night I went out to Itaewon for Mexican at Vatos! It was so.damn.good. We ordered Kimchi Carnitas fries, Braised Carnitas taco and Carne Asada Steak Quesadilla. The quesadilla was definitely my favorite; The fries were a tad too spicy for me and it didn’t really live up to the hype but I’ll definitely be going back soon to try the rest of the menu. It came down to 28500krw(about 30aud) for the 2 of us which wasn’t toooooo bad, but it is Itaewon so.. haha.

After we stuffed ourselves we headed down the street to The Bungalow and ordered a lime mojito and some sort of lychee flavored drink(can’t remember what it was called)

The bar was pretty quirky with a tropical theme; the room across from where we were sitting(pictured above) had hanging chairs and a sand covered floor which was pretty cool. Overall, I didn’t think the place and the vibe was amazing, but it was decent.
