  • Ate lunch at Myeongdong Noodle Bar just outside the palace. I had super super spicy pork topped in rice! Sizzling hot 😦 Fortunately, Jaycee was willing to eat it instead [for me], since food must not be wasted. Chino got cold soybean noodles.
  • Dessert at Dunkin Donuts!
  • Went to Seoul Museum of Arts just across the palace.

resting while waiting for Seoul’s efficient train–super tired from walking

  • Explored the iPark mall. Lotsa cameras! Kakahilo and overwhelming.
  • Jaycee and Chino checked out Microsoft’s Surface exhibit while I rested and window-shopped.
  • Walked to the subway to Samgakji.
  • Because we were so hungry and tired, we bought potato chips, rice ball (pork) and cherry coke at a restaurant near War Memorial.
  • War Memorial of Korea. Closes at 18:00 so we had too little time, only 15minutes inside :(( Sayang, the memorial building looks so interesting! Picture-taking outside with the war artifacts –planes, tanks, war ship and artilleries. We even met Filipinos working at Korea while taking pictures at the monument.

  • Ate dinner at a Korean restaurant in Dongdaemun. It’s a treat from Chino! Pork belly, salad (lotsa veggies), and chapchae. All delicious! Burp!
  • Walked around Dongdaemun. Shopped at Migliore mall for a few clothes.
  • We took then the subway going to Jongno-sam gu station. Back to the hotel at 23:00 🙂 Whew, what a long day!
