Saturday Adventure in Seoul

Moving on — with my crapstone turned in, the only thing I can do now is to wait for my defence date on March 27. I’ve a bit of a reprieve, so I made plans to meet up with Bunny Unnie to check out this Indian restaurant in Seoul called Namaste in Dongdaemun area. I’ve been craving Indian, so we decided it to check it out.
We ordered and split between a chicken tikka masala, chicken biryani, and plain naan. All together, our total came to 25,000 won ($24 USD). It was pretty good, but I am not sure if it’s worth going to Dongdaemun for it! But I’m glad we tried it.
Next we went to Hannam Dong area to check out Banana Tree. Bunny Unnie saw this place featured on TV, and they’re known for their cotton candy latte, a unique concept that made us curious, though I was a bit turned off by the idea first.
I chose to get the strawberry one. Now, I originally thought it’d be like a strawberry milk tea latte or some thing similar. I was not expecting for them to put chunks of strawberry in an actual latte. X_X; Coffee + Strawberry = NASTINESS. If I ever go back there, I’ll stick with the milk caramel flavour — that sounds better than fruit and coffee mixed together. But bleeeeeegh! I won’t ever get the strawberry one again!
Afterwards, Bunny Unnie and I walked around Itaewon. We stopped by the Foreign Food Mart to look around and get whatever catches our eye. Then we walked in the back road of Itaewon and we came upon this HUGE “lion dog”.
Apparently, this dog’s a bit on the mean side. There was a warning sign that stated he bites when he’s touched . . . other people touched him with no issues, but I decided I’d better not risk it! Still, though, what a majestic looking dog.
Bunny Unnie and I separated after, and I headed to my neighbourhood, where I stopped by my favourite coffee shop to get yummy coffee to make up for that nasty latte, stopped by the fruit store to get some mandarin oranges for Daddy, and picked up some kimbap for mum and me. All in all, what a crazy, but fun day! I love Seoul. Where else can I do all this in one day? :D
