In Korea: Food trip in Myeongdong

I love shopping in Myeongdong but I love eating more. Whenever I go to Myeongdong, I always point to all the food until I'm so full. My favorite is the Hoddeok specially when the weather is cold. Others are sausages and some shrimp tempura.

Aside from the street food, there are also restaurants around Myeongdong. You wont be starving here.

In Korea: Snow sledding at Ttukseom Hangang Park

To enjoy winter more with budget and time limits, snow sledding at Tukseom Hangang Park is the answer. 

My snow sledding buddy. He really enjoyed the ride as I did. Good thing there are only few visitors when we went there and so we go sled whenever we can until we are so tired to go up again.

Barbie in boots :)

In Korea: BAU House

Bau House is a Dog Lovers cafe. They have small and large breeds of dogs. All of them are so cute and friendly. Actually they go to you and sit at your lap. There are house rules in here because dogs can have different moods too. They can attack you if triggered badly. Anyway, when you go here you have to order beverage for you. It usually cost around KRW 7000. If you are generous to the dogs you can buy and give them treats.

In Korea: Hello Kitty Cafe

I'm not a fan of Hello Kitty but going to a themed cafe or restaurant for me is a bucketlist. Hello Kitty Cafe is located in Sinchon Area. After I went to Ehwa Womans University and shopping around the area, I wanted to have a cup of hot coffee because the snow was hard. I was actually looking for Hello Kitty Cafe but when I got lost, can't find my way there and gave up, tadah! I found the Cafe.

All meow!

I ordered for a coffee and a piece of cake. It was hard to drink and eat this cute stuffs.

The cafe is so cute. All Pink with all the Hello Kitty stuff toys and things. They also sell Hello Kitty goods too.

At the second floor. As you can see its just me on the floor. I think this branch is much less busier than the one in Hongdae.

In Korea: Ewha Womans University

Ewha Womans University (Korean: 이화여자대학교, Hanja: 梨花女子大學校) is a private women's university in central SeoulSouth Korea founded in 1886 by the American Methodist Episcopal missionary Mary F. Scranton. It is currently the world's largest female educational institute and is one of the most prestigious universities in South Korea. (Wikipedia)

Direction: Ewha Womans University Station (Line 2) exit 2 or 3 walk straight ahead

It started to snow!!!

Mount Pico de Loro

My third climb to Mount Pico de Loro. It has a new trail which starts at the DENR station. The new trail is so much easier than the old trail as it took us about 30 minutes to go up to the campsite. 

From coastal mall, there are buses that goes to Ternate Cavite (P82) then ride the tricycle going to the DENR station (P75/pax. We are 3 in the tricycle). Register at DENR (P25) then go up!

Same climbing shoes :)

View from the campsite. A lot of climbers... a lot of stores...

Nice view

Aside from the hard blow of air above this is another obstacle to face going up the parrots beak. If you have a very strong upper body this is easy for you.

At last, on top of the beak!

We finished before lunchtime. Very nice to have a carenderia at the Station. We spent less than 400 pesos for this trip.
