Dakgalbi@Myung Dong, Seoul

 Myung Dong, is widely known for its amazing fun felt shopping district. Girls swipe their credit cards here like all hell breaks loose, especially the facial stores. I myself fell into the trap of SkinFood craze. Boys, happily "wash their eyes" (observe with lust/passion in our local Malay language) standing along the roads watching pretty girls pass by.

Even shoppers need to eat after a long day of spending money.

We popped by this interesting looking shop, packed with locals.

 A HUGE frying pan was found on the middle of the dining table. We ordered 4 portions of Dakgalbi, seasoned pork with veges (We were not allowed to order anything less than 4 pax). Then, we were given a plastic napkin to tie around our necks, like the baby's bib, except its for gigantic babies like us. The interesting part was that.. we fried them on our own, at our own leisure and style.

 Cheers to all of us! With icey cold soju!

 Fry fry fry fry ! How about that? Pay for a meal where you need to cook on your own. Interesting... nevertheless, it tasted really, really good. The meat was extremely spicy. With the meat freshly cooked from the giant pan in front of us plus the spicyness of the marinate, our lips swelled up, plump red, like botox gone wrong.

 After the meal, we walked around, getting lost in between those tiny lanes
I came across this little corner seafood cafe. My first time seeing so many living squids swimming around. Although I could not capture their lluminating colours as they moved from the camera, in real life, they looked like moving glitters. Really different than how we see them when they're dead / cooked.
Spring time in Seoul. Beautiful flowers blossoming inside the church grounds. These colourful palette decorated the entire hill, almost like the rainbow made a trip down to earth.
