greetings, greetings! good morning, good afternoon, good evening, hello, how are you ? Annyeong.
I didn't get to blog from Seoul. No chance. The kids hog the computer everytime they see one in the room, so here I am, after 2 days home, after getting my sleep clock right and posting the thousand pictures into FB.
The first day in Korea, we basically freeze ourselves to death, visiting the island and mountain with subzero temperature straight off the airport.
Kami pikir kunun sejuk2 gitu saja sebab sudah di hujung2 winter. Sekali keluar airport, terus berasap-asap mulut , nah! berhamburan masing2 menarik jaket tebal dari beg. DARN IT! COLD!
And the breakfast that awaits us, did not improve our mood. Punya jauh kami breakfast, entah di mana tempat jin bertendang ni, tiada satu perumahan pun. I still don't know the name of this area.
Ini lah tempatnya.
Mi udon. Very healthy (translation : tawar). The technique here is to eat everything with kimchi and other side dish that come along, in this case, pickled radish. Kimchi is hot, very hot and sour and salty.
After the unfulfilling noodle, everyone look around for coffee. Where's the dispenser? None. There's only plain water. Cold plain water for breakfast. Alright...
Our first destination, Nami Island.
Lokasi penggambaran Winter Sonata ini memang cantik.
You know I can't seem to load single picture. It comes out half blackened like a destroyed film. Do you know what on earth is the matter? I have to page together several pics like this. This need some time. I'll be back tomorrow, ok.
After visiting Nami Island, we stopped for lunch, in the ferry area itself. Look.
Kami duduk bersimpuh di restoran ini.
(see this is what i mean. kenapa ada line gelap di bawah gambar ni. kalau tidak di photoscape ginilah jadinya).
Lantai restoran ini ada pemanas, jadi sangatlah nyaman diduduki, memandangkan kami sudah rasa mau beku. Time ni, kami makan dengan lahap sebab my dear sister membawa serunding udang keringnya yang fames. Berebut-rebut bah.
Setelah kenyang, kami meneruskan perjalanan ke National Park. About 2 hours drive.
Seoraksan National Park
Mukabumi Korea memang mountanious. This isn't the only mountain apparently. Ada banyak lagi national park lain. This is the last leg of the day before we go for dinner and check in to our hotel. Agak penat tapi kami ikut juga guide tu mendaki sikit ke atas. He wants to show us the big Budha statue and the nice scenery around for phototaking. Its beautiful actually. But the path was quite slippery.
Getting to know the snow. Di park ini salji sudah agak nipis, nanti besok baru kami pi melawat salji tebal di resort ski.
Masa pergi dinner, Helmi jumpa kawan baru.
Ini kali, menu kami seafood steamboat. Yes. sup panas-panas.
Habis sudah cerita hari pertama. Besok lagi sambung, ok.
