HAPPY BIRTHDAY!! (Sorry for the caps). 설화와 뿌뚜… 생일 축하해! We wish you all the best and hope the time we’ve spent together (just now) will remain in your memory for a very long time (if not, please look at this blog anytime :D)

It’s quite crowded in here but we sure have fun! Thanks to the multi-bang staff for not putting extra charge for each people up on the photo above. Once again, HAPPY BIRTHDAY and good luck for the exam everybody!


Okay. I can’t study yet. So I was browsing through my photos and found this funny moments captured on my camera. It was around February, when Valentine’s Day is around the corner and it is still cold (especially if you have no other half to cuddle with :P). So this is what happened:

On one fine (cold) day,  there is a Lion who make his rare visit in front of a university full of girls. He quickly gained popularity because of his unusual cuteness and cool behavior (just look at how he sit on that thing =_=).

But then on the other side of the road there stood the Lion’s old rival, Monkey. He openly flirting with girls by handing out his big business card that makes any women flattered and speechless.

Seeing that the Lion decided to face the Monkey, saying how could he done that after he helps him with his house chores the other day. His heart hurt so much he decided to leave the Monkey in confusion.

‘I may have a big head but I will not betray my friend who is the biggest rival in-terms of appearance. So long Monkey, hope we will not see each other again,’ said the Lion. The Monkey, left in confusion seems too confused to think. But then with the commoners support (and a bit of explanation of what the Lion said because he still confuse why the Lion being overly dramatic), he chased after the Lion.

‘As much as I love the girls, I love you more my friend (plus I still need your help with my house chores). Lets not fight. I can’t handle the girls alone. Lets share like old times…’ said the Monkey.

So both of them make peace and continues to filling up the girls heart with their warm love.

Okay I go a bit too far here. Can’t study, can’t concentrate and why the hell did I do this? Well for what it’s worth, it is fun making up stories with photos. The Lion is actually Mister Donut’s mascot who was distributing coupons and of course, promoting their donuts. And the Monkey was… who knows? According to their school jacket, they are from Yonsei University, trying to advertise their contact number. Maybe to get girls because of the coming Valentine Day? We’ve seen this kind of act from other students who clearly ask the girls out by holding a big banner in front of our school… it’s cute, isn’t it? haha~ Seeing that, the cheeky Lion mascot trying to outshine the Monkey and they make us laugh with their spontaneous act (especially when we was so tensed about our coming exam).

It is good to laugh, isn’t it? (^_^)v

This is our favourite grilled fish restaurant. I bet if you lived around Sinchon, or Yonsei University, or Ewha University, or even Hongdae this place is quite famous. It is near U-Plex and Hyundai shopping complex area but the thing is, I can’t exactly draw the map to the restaurant. It’s quite confusing because this area is full of restaurants and 술집, and the fact that this restaurant from outside doesn’t look like a restaurant (unless you see the signboard above). Well I hope the picture above can help if you wanted to come here though :D

From the left is the standard 반찬 (banchan) you get if you dine in any Korean restaurant but except for the kimchi, the other two is always changing (I must be coming to the restaurant a lot to know about that). Anyway, we ordered 오징어 볶음 (spicy stir-fried squid), 생선 구이 (grilled fish) and 된장 찌개 (soy-bean paste soup).

The grilled fish is pretty much the same with other places’ grilled fish, but I guess it is bigger and cheap for that size. Usually we ordered one grilled fish, 2 servings of stir-fried squid and one 찌개 (to be eaten for 4-5 persons) and it cost around 5,000-6,000 per person. Unlike other places, the soy-bean paste soup is full of clams and some sort of snails (siput sedut…?) not quite sure what it is and it is a bit spicy, I guess to make balance with the grilled fish ‘fishy’ taste. The grilled fish is tender and juicy, and people here ate it with soy sauce mixed with wasabi. But I like it with the spicy sauce from stir-fried squid dish. Yum~

To compliment the fish, they served cool tea and don’t be surprised if they don’t give you any cups for that. Instead they used some sort of bowl (that look like a normal korean rice bowl) to drink the tea. The staff look scary-looking but they are actually friendly and serve you fast enough you can’t even complaint (나쁜 남자 처럼 T.T). The restaurant is full with pictures of the staff and customers which makes me feel warm enough and cozy despite the limited chairs and tables (especially during the peak hours).

There. It almost makes me feel hungry. Need to study for my final Korean Language test next week… OTL
