Second last day in Kyung Hee..Mixed feelings!

My second last day staying in this dorm and tomorrow will be my last class before the program end. So sad over ends too fast.

Mixed feelings I have now. Sad because I dislike the feeling of saying goodbye to friends. Nervous because tomorrow will be closing ceremony and something going on tomorrow. Not gonna tell yet cz don't want to have any pressure for myself. I will just enjoy to give my best. *Is not about the matter that I posted in Instagram, it is something even serious than that* Haha..

Thing that I'm grateful about
1. Friends
Appreciate knowing friends from different countries. You guys are really amazing and so fun to mixed with. Love every single one of you! If you happen to be in Malaysia, contact me through Facebook ya..:-)

2. Professor Oliver William
Haha..I feel grateful for his patience to bare with us. Sometimes we have to admit that the video playing is too boring and all of us were looking at our phone but he is being so patience like nothing happen and won't be angry or anything. May be he expected this to be happen every year la. his fifth or sixth time teaching for Kyung Hee Summer Program.


3. My dorm
Although when I arrived I feel slightly uneasy about it but after 4 weeks, I start to love here day by day. Every night sleep soundly..very comfortable! Aww..tonight will be my second last night here. :-(

4. Food 
Ahh..I love korean food so much. Don't think every food here is kimchi and samgyeopsal *pork barbeque*..they have variety of food here, so those who say dislike korean food and choose not to come because you think every meal is kimchi then I hope after you read this, I can changed your perception towards here. Haha..
Food here is too awesome la! Every night different food yet we still can't finish exploring!
Food which is not my favour: Naengmyeong (cold noodles), Bibimbap (vegetables mixed with rice)
Food which I favour: Fried chicken, cake, dessert, everything about green tea, patbingsu (red bean and green tea ice), oreo frozen yogurt, popcorn, samgyetang (ginseng chicken soup), samgyeopsal, spicy sliced pork, and many others that I couldn't named it but it will always be in my mind.

Army Stew

Traditional Red Bean Patbingsoo! This is a bomb! 

Spicy pork sliced and steam egg

Oreo Frozen Yogurt! This is super nice and RM5 only! 

Buffet Samgyeopsal

This is nice as well! Boiled pork they called..I don't!

Hello Kitty Cafe in Hongdae

Looks tempting right?! Want to change your travel plan to Korea ah? Haha..I see if I'm "hardworking" enough I will go back compile all the food pictures that I have here then share it with you guys..haha!

5. Walk everyday
In Penang, I have car so needless to walk but when I'm here, we need to walk all the time even if it is raining heavily and go everywhere by subway! I will miss subway here as well!

Shopping heaven in Ehwa





6. Cosmetics
Cosmetics here is cheap! Some products that I don't even know is also existing here. Lol..I have one sample from Too Cool For School which is get ready dual primer for pores, I don't know what it is for. Lol..and don't doubt about Korean cosmetics, you can get the cosmetics with cheap price which give you the results like those Western brands. So, what are you waiting for, come here shop for cosmetics la! Lol..

And many more I would say.

I will miss here! Hope I can bring my parents and siblings here one day to let them experience what the locals is doing instead of tour around like a tourist! Any of my friends who would like to visit to Korea feel free to ask me details about here. I would be glad to help! :-) But I may not know everything la..Haha..

Btw I will still be staying here until next week la..haha!

Korea Travel Book: Boryeong Mud Festival

Hello! This few days lazy to go out that's why I have time here to update my blog! 
Will just be a short update.. 
The last three days staying in my dorm..such a cozy place..I'm gonna miss here. 

Last weekend we went to Boryeong Mud Festival with school field trip! 
Quite fun but weather is extremely hot! My shoulder, head and neck got sunburn now! Cz stupid me forgot to bring sunblock along..ishh! I turn dark super easily but takes very long time to have fair skin again. I should say I never have fair skin in my life, I can be darker than my friends whereby I drive but they walk in the campus..=="

Picture with Ching Ya, a very lovely girl from Taiwan!


Super in love with the sea but the water is dark colour cz everyone wash themselves after the mud games. 


My first time seeing so so many people along the sea coast. Too bad the picture is blur cz the waterproof casing has too much mud on it! Lol..I need to buy a waterproof casing for my  iPhone so badly! If not I missed out many picture taking time! 



Some rave party time! So fun! 


I have no idea what expression is this..=="


Apply mud all over the body to block the sun rays! Lol..treating it as sunscreen but I think it doesn't help..


We apply mud ourselves before assess to the game zone. 


While playing! 


Pictures credited to Carmen! She is from Hong Kong who currently study in Korea!

Btw not forget to tell, we bath in a common shower room in Boryeong! My first time shower nakedly in front of others..yet is a group of nearly 20 people bathing in one shower room! And the water cold like ice you have no time to see other's body, what you will thought is, get it done asap then cabut! Lol..

50% Rebate Campaign from 23rd to 25th July in Gurney Paragon

Hey guys, I'm back to tell you about the latest promotion by Italiannies! 

They are one of my favourite Italian restaurant in the island, good news is currently they are running a three-day long 50% rebate campaign in Gurney Paragon from 23rd to 25th July! Be quick, mark your calender and make reservation! My previous post about Italiannies is here, I love it especially their seafood risotto! Details is in the post, feel free to click in. :-)

The three-day long "50% rebate campaign" is being run by Italiannies in celebration of Gurney Paragon's soft launch.

Throughout the campaign period, guests will receive 50% rebate of their total bill when they dine in Italiannies. The 50% rebate can be used to offset their bill using their next visit to Chaswood's many restaurants namely, Italiannies, T.G.I.Friday's, The Apartment, Watami, Bulgogi Brothers, Laundry, Baci, Bedroom and Malones Irish Restaurant & Bar.

Bulgogi Brothers which is under Chaswood are famous for their heart shape bulgogi but sadly it is available only in KL. Hopefully they will launch in Penang soon but I guess the opening of Italiannies would be a great start to "test the water" in Penang. Lol..

Chicken Milanese

Classic Carbonara

To eligible for the promotion, members of the public just need to sign up for Chaswood Resources' loyalty card program - Pinch of Salt card, which is available for free.

I have applied myself the Pinch of Salt card during my last visit dining in Italiannies. As it is free, so I see no harm to apply it as the member. :-)

Other than the 50% rebate campaign running during Gurney Paragon's soft launch, cardmembers will also be able to enjoy a series of exclusive dining privileges at Chaswood's restaurant such as a 10% rebate from subtotal bill, birthday voucher worth RM30, monthly special offers and more.

In addition, from 26th July till 30th September 2013, Italiannies will be having special offers for Pinch of Salt members in Penang, which include complimentary dessert, 20% rebate and more.

If you never try Italiannies and one of your concern is financial constraints then I think this is the right time to grab this 50% rebate opportunity to dine in there. I will recommend you the seafood risotto besides the ordinary pasta and pizza. Risotto is a traditional italian food, the details about it can view from my previous post then..:-)

Pizza Enorme

Stuffed Mushroom

For more information on the Pinch of Salt loyalty card benefits, you can visit

Don't forget to follow Italiannies Facebook Page for more Italiannies upcoming promotion and announcement for special offers exclusively to the Pinch of Salt cardmembers.

Korea Travel Book: Arrived in Jejudo

"Hello guys, I came back from Jeju in the past Sunday. Quite a fun trip in Jeju cz we met nice cab driver to fetch us around with very reasonable price we think..and it definitely save much time to tour around the island. 

Here are some of the recap of my trip. I have try to reduce as much pictures as I can cz I don't wish to spam my post with tons of pictures. Filter lots of them already." - this was written on Monday.

Today is Saturday already. Ehhem..I was refused to open this link cz just want to stay away from this blog chaos. Anyway I appreciate if you still click to the link to read this post. I knew from my friend that if she click my link from Facebook it will showed a pop-up saying this is a spam website things like that huh? Thanks for her telling me, and I have no idea what's happening here. If any of you came across this please let me know what's going on. I would be much appreciated!

Back to the story here. Jeju Air is the plane that we travel from Gimpo Airport to Jeju Airport. This is the shortest travel period compared to other transportation and is the most convenient one. 



Lunch in LotteRia. The cheapest set meal need RM16. In Malaysia, we considered RM10 as expensive for a McD set meal. Lol..



My Giant Double Burger. Double patty. Lol..being such a big eater here cz we have to walk a lot. If didn't eat this much, I am afraid I will be starved easily. Lol..


Streets right beside Jeju first time seeing town is just beside the airport.


The hostel we are staying in for 4 days 3 nights!



I am impressed with korea waste management. They really separate all the food waste and trash accordingly. Something that we should review and practice in Malaysia.


Our hostel room. Very cosy right? RM55 per person for a night. Considered cheap living in Korea. The bathroom is actually shared bathroom but is very clean no worries! :-)


Clean shared bathroom


The pantry in basement




Black pork that we had that day. The hostel person in charge recommended this restaurant to us and they said if staying in HK Jeju hostel, the customers will get 5 or 10% disc on the total bill. Anyway, we saw another shop which is more crowded on the same street. Sadly, we knew it after we had taken our dinner here.



This is so far the best food that I have in Korea. Lol..that day each person paying 13125 won which is equivalent to RM37. The best dinner I've ever had here. Usually I control my food expenses within RM30 per day and I tell you, one meal will cost you at least RM15 already. So this is definitely not a luxurious tour. Haha..


Fry in a glass look-alike "pan"..I knew Yea in Times Square is using this so-called pan, but many told me Yea is not nice. *Yea that I referred to is a restaurant*


Raw black pork and it looks quite oily huh?


Wah this is heaven. Haha..the pork oil flow underneath the bean sprouts and kimchi and my first time frying kimchi this way so is somehow different than the usual one.


Love wrapping this with lettuce, then a slice of pork, then kimchi, rice, bean sprouts and the chili paste with pickle green onion! Slurp..and the one on the left is pork skin. Nice also lo..haha..


I think this is the only one McDonald's in Jeju island.




Playing basketball just right beside the seashore with the breeze.



Love Jeju. Before I visit to this place, I will think ok lo, see rock, see mountain and sea but after visited I really love this place especially person like me who prefer seaside instead of city. May be another reason is because we chose the places that we want to go in Jeju, that is why we enjoy the trip very much.




Walked very far to see a rock. Yup is a rock, a tourist spot.


Okay, we reached.


People said can see a dragon look-alike rock but no matter which side I see, it doesn't looks like a dragon rock. ==" Another strange thing here is not the rock, is the uncle on the left in the picture is fishing. I wonder how can they walk so far till the tip there just to fish har..I see difficulties walking there


If you are interested you can google this place.


That's it for the first night. Has been a week and just got the mood to blog. Anyway I have a fun trip in Korea and today is my 15th day here. Hopefully tomorrow I will have the time to blog about my feeling staying here in this 15 days!
