치맥(Chimaek) has been one of the most common yet popular dish among the Koreans, be it having it as a meal or supper. *drools*
But sometimes it does put me off a little due to the excessive calories which I would be indulging it into my tummy.(even though I love to say #eatfirstthensay but it still bothers me ok!)
Right now, there’s a much healthier choice of Chimaek available in Singapore!
KORYO – Korean Baked Chicken.
No doubt. ALL the chicken are oven-baked instead of deep-frying!! :O
Over the past 2years, I had friends/readers and even read some posts on the forum where one gets a transit over in Korea. Most of them would seek help in getting ideas what they should do when they only have about 12-24hours of transit before they need to hop onto their flight heading to the next destination.
I had decided to split this entry up into 4 Sections:
– Attractions in Seoul
– Cafe Street Visit
– Seouly Shopping
– Unique Experience Only in Korea
Yes! You can mix and match the itinerary on your own and make the 12-24hours of stay a mixture of tourist-FIT(Free Independent Traveller) feel. Can’t wait to read it? Let’s go! :)Continue reading →
To begin in this entry…Do let me rant a litte!!! :P
It really took me a longgggggg way in order to get in contact with a local Goshiwon agent. At the same time, it’s my very first time to try Goshiwon too!!
To be honest, I wasn’t sure if I should give Goshiwon a try initially. But I do have some email requesting about long-term rental for students(especially) who are heading to Korea for school exchange.
We all know that in Korea, their housing system works rather different from most of the countries.
Other than the monthly rental, you need to pay upfront an amount(range from 2-5million won) as a deposit!!! (@#$%^&* I feel you! where can a student get that amount of money..but hey! That’s their system…)
To make things worst, most(or rather ALL) 고시원 sites are in koreans!! (@#$%^&*&^@)
So….I decided to get in contact with 1 of the Goshiwon Agent, Michael, who is pretty nice to give me a trial stay in one of the 고시원 apartment!
(Apparently Michael is working closely with quite a number of Goshiwon Agent in Seoul. You can contact the him (or Justin, who is the english translator working along with him) to help you look for a Goshiwon that fits to your bill alright! ^^)
So..this entry shall mark as one of the most basic Goshiwon that is located at the back-end of Hongdae for you people! :)
