Ahha, before I give some kind of lame excuse for not updating my blog, gotta give a proper greeting to my 3 readers first! Salam sejahtera, salam 1 Malaysia kawan-kawan sekalian!
Although this sounds kinda fake, but I was very busy ever since my second year of uni started. I am officially in my second semester now (fun fact uni started 2 days ago), and I'm pretty sure I will disappear after this post. Since today is a public holiday (#GE14) and uni just started, which means that there isn't any work yet, I can update my blogz.
Edit : An extra 2 days of holidays, so proud to live in this historical moment.
My family and I went to Korea in the month of February to attend my sister's convocation. My mother had been planning this trip since 2 to 3 years ago, and I nearly didn't get to join them for this trip. My sister's convo fell on the week after CNY, which meant that there wasn't any holidays for me. Aside from that, my group had to present on that week, sounds like I was fated to not go right? I had the same thoughts man.
Even though I told my mom that it's okay if I couldn't join them for this trip, deep down inside I really really really really wanted to go. It's not like I get to travel with all my family members overseas every year, and my sister isn't going to graduate from Korea for 400 times.
I often make many bad decisions in life, but deciding to go on this trip is definitely one of the best decisions that I've ever made.
Starting off with a picture of my sister wrapping my luggage with Tesco cling film because the airport charges around RM30 per luggage?! #stayeconomical #diy
My sister is really good in this btw hahaha.
Oh btw, since my family and I were on different flights, I had to go to KLIA 2 while theirs at KLIA. And my family being my family, they were really worried about me so they asked my sister to accompany me to KLIA 2 hahaha. Thanks keluargaku, especially my sister who had to go to and fro.
Also decided to wear my Gudetama socks that I bought from Japan 2 freaking years ago. Oh man, time flies.
I was all alone after checking in, and I had nothing to do so I took more pictures of my socks wtf.
And then I got on the flight, had 2 meals given to me, which until today, I am still unsure why I have 2 meals. I know I ordered one online, but for the other one saya pun tak tau kenapa la.
I was really full after the first meal, so I couldn't finish my second meal T__T *bad quality pic because bad lighting
The flight was a torture because I couldn't sleep well and I couldn't concentrate while watching my Netflix because I was too sleepy haih.
Woo! I survived my first solo flight yayayay.
Okok, and then I had to meet my family at our rendezvous point.
PyongChang Winter Olympics on going~
It was such a relief when I saw my family members again hahaha.
And then we had to take the train to our Airbnb to meet up with my sister (the one studying in Korea). The moment I stepped out of the airport I nearly died because of the cold air, holy shit man, it was another level of cold T__T
After approx. an hour long train ride, we've finally reached our destination. Met up with my sister, and then she brought us to the Airbnb so that we could put our luggage there.
This is some spicy chicken hotpot thing that we ordered:
Was pretty meh hahaha.
My dad had his own chicken soup because he can't take spicy.
After lunch we walked around Hongdae area and then decided to stop by Osulloc, which is a femez green tea place in Korea. The cafe had three floors if not mistaken and the second floor was totally empty so my family decided to crash the second floor hahaha.
It was very nice la we had the entire second floor to ourselves.
Since we had the entire floor to ourselves my sister and I took some shameless photos hahaha.
After much hae-ing, we headed back to our Airbnb to settle down and rest. My mom decided to cook dinner that night so we dropped by the supermarket for groceries.
After settling down and stuff, my bro, sis and I headed to the convenient store nearby to waste money woowoowoo.
And then we came back in time to help momz prepare for dinner. Mom brought taufu pok all the way from Malaysia HAHAHA.
And also many other stuff from Malaysia......
Dinner was super good, the spinach from the supermarket is very nice T___T
Ending our day with some peach alcohol drink from the convenient store. According to my dad it is too sweet and it is like “小孩子喝的” (Translation: beverage for kids)
That's all for day one, will I be able to complete all 5 days of my Korea trip?? It will remain as a mystery~~~~~
