get lost in seoul day 1

still in the day 1 ..

after visited the yg building we continue to go to banpo bridge  to see the moonlight rainbow fountain which be the must visited object in korea. why its called rainbow fountain ?? because when the sun begins to set , there 200 multicolored light illuminate the fountain that falls directly into the han river under the bridge.

The fountain is flowing from the left and right side of the bridge, which is 1,140 m in length. Water discharge issued approximately 190 tons per minute. The fountain is falling at a distance of 43 meters from the bridge. Accompanied by music, rainbow fountain is like to dance. and this show recorded by guinness world record and  if you k-drama fever you should be know banpo bridge is always be the set in every k-drama. 

in case ..
actually i kinda doesnt agree to go there in day 1 just because we has arrived in different temperature . from 30 in my country and extremely be minus celcius in south korea it so worried me just because i just wear long john, shirt, leather jacket, and legging and without any preparation how to get there and time to see that show but we still go there with bismillah. hehe

in the middle trip 
my friends wasnt have strong faith and start shopping in the "market station", my watch showing in  near eight number according to source of the books i read the show starts at 8 pm and only lasted about 15 minutes. after leaving the station exit we get confused to which pass road that should we choose and walk with no direction finally we find a long wide street and in the end i see the light twinkle in the distance. it seems that place that were looking for.

we also rushed to get there. we passed this street so familiar in the memory, this location like set in K-drama that I watch. shaped like a jogging track or bike tracking, there so many people have exercise in here or just enjoying the view of han river. this night the wind is very strong and i saw the temperature get minus in three celcius, seriously i cant enjoy the view. and time show 8.30 pm yeaaah we couldnt see anything and getting frozen. 

we decided to enter the CNN cafe for looking for the warmth. 

CNN cafe locaation in Banpo Hangang Park , the best place with beautiful view. you can order coffee and the warm things. places rated 9 prices standard but fo me the waiters less to use english languange. it make us in difficulty situation to order something. (its look like awkward moments when i dont know what you said and so do i haha ) but finally the awkward moments has done and we can have our vanilla latte and hot chocolate.

 as i said this cafe has a great architecture , cozy , and  very romantic places. you can see a lot of people not only the tourist but also the local residents. the wi-fi connection is fast and this place equipped with electric plugs so we can charge our smartphone.

time show 10 pm time to go home and walk again .when we want to find a way to get back to the station, we look for another way to follow people who go into the tunnel and I ventured to ask how to go to the station.

I meet two young lady and they are very good-natured though once again the constraints in the language but they would drive me to the station. they are so nice, but when i arrive in station my fellas get lost or maybe the correct answer i lost them. i think i walk faster than them. im wait with hope because i dont bring router of wifi ,my passport and cash money .. poor me but its about 10 minutes waiting in front of station they come. so glad to see thei faces .. my bad fellas so sorry.

it takes one hour to get our guest house , its so  loooong day and i thin my feet become numbs. i dont know how far we walked today but thanks god im in seoul.

good night friends, see ya in my other recent trip to south korea

remembering feb

hello friends , im back again in beginning of my month "March" is kind of late but i would like to say happy valentine and happy lunar year for those celebrate.

remembering Feb , 

febuary for me is not only about month of love but more than that , ive been waiting this month for couples month ago and finally D day come .. my dreams come true i went go to SOUTH KOREA with my fellas. WHY SOUTH KOREA ?? korean fever has successfully entered in my country Indonesia and i ones of million people here who affected korean waves. im not fan of K-POP but i truly fall in love with korean Dramas. ( i buy a lot DVDs and watched almost everyday) . i always dreaming about the atmosphere ,the people, the weather and everything about korea and because i went go there in feb (its still winter seasons) so i really want to know "the SNOW" because theres no winter seasons in my country. and here it is my memories in my Seoul.

day 1

im arrived in incheon airport in the morning , and i was greeted with the cold air and what the first impression when i see the airport ?? omooo alhamdulillah , finally im here cant wait to get lost in here . And and like most developed countries incheon airport is the airport which was very spacious with full amenities. after we buy T-Money were going to our guest house in hongdae. we had lost with a briefcase and cold weather to get there but fortunately we found our guest house "THE HAEMIL" 30, Donggyoro 46gil (384-1, Yeonnam-dong), Mapo-gu,Shinchon / Hongdae, Seoul, South Korea (Show on map

The couple of guest house is very kind & nice. mrs kim has a superb hand the breakfast is so delicious. they have warm heart and make me feel like home. and of course the room is clean and tidy. oh ya location the hemil is near with subway station exit 10 (strategic place)

after have a rest , were start to get walk around our guest house to find meal to late lunch. almost restaurant in here open in night so we choose Travel Maker and fo me is best choice , affordable price fpr the thick and big pancakes i ever know the strowbery is sweet n big too, i cant finished by myself. hiks
oh ya for toast is using bacons so for moslem dont forget to say NO PORK to the waiters so we had big toast with full scrambled egg inside.

my meal "pancakses strowbery and bananas"

inside trevel maker

the outside .. so blue so comfy so nice place for the starter .. 

thats our complete meal that we order . even cold outside but orange juice iced is better than hot chocolate haha.  we eat and discussion about what place next to seen . after read guide book we go to yg entertainment because one of my friend is big fans of BigBang so there we go..

YG ENTERTAINMENT is located in hongdae area too , is little too far but its okay because i know how fan is it . we go faraway from indonesia so we should have to know with our eyes YG building . the weather at the time is too windy and were in minus celcius temperature so walk faster is the best way.

FYI actually i dont even know about BigBang haha .. but when i see YG building is so awesome building and for all the fans of YG family who wait and yealing in front this building i feel oh my gosh "its so damn cold outside and the fans is amazing crazy" yeaah my friend has a happy face even we dont see any artist but see the building is enough .

day 1 is not over yet .. i'll tell you tomorrow ..
