Seoul: Myeongdong

After a Saturday night out in Seoul, Sunday was a relaxing day where we had lunch in Myeongdong with friends.

Riding the bus from Yeouido to Myeongdong took 20 minutes. It was a nice bus ride as we get to cross one of Seoul's numerous Han River bridges and see Seoulites during their usual Sunday routine. When we reached Myeongdong, amidst the crowded streets and alleys, we looked around for a place to eat. At one of Myeongdong's alleys, we picked a typical Korean restaurant where I ordered bulgogi and chigae (spicy stew with tofu).  The guys ordered bibimbap and pajeon (scallion pancakes).

On the 3rd  floor of one of Seoul numerous cafes, over hot chocolate (I'm a non-coffee drinker) and coffee for others, we chatted over future travel plans, and people watched before I met up with Sae to check out Dongdaemun area.

We walked around and checked out some malls, but I've never been a mall person, we quickly left and headed to Insadong for some shopping - I wanted to buy the table mats I bought 2 years ago again to replace the old one - and had some shaved ice dessert.

For dinner, we went back to Yeouido to meet up with Albert and had Korean bbq and soju near his apartment. Byuk Chon, is a typical Korean BBQ restaurant in Yeouido, with a friendly owner and frequented by locals. Dinner was great and company was even better, as three U.S. East Coasters (Albert is from CT while Sae and I are from NYC) compared Seoul to NYC, and pretty much talked about how much we love NYC! Hahaha... We ended the night eating some Korean ice cream before I said my goodbye to Sae (I wonder when I will see him again) and packed up for my early flight to Philippines the next morning.

This time, Albert is driving me to the airport! Yay~!
