Dear Dayre,

Annyeong from the land of the freezing subzeros, Seoul!

Here for work with a brand – Will disclose the brand later hehe but work only starts tomorrow, Wednesday! I flew in a couple days earlier to have some alone time to shop and eat, the press trip itself is only three days and I wanted to spend a bit more time in Seoul since itโ€™s been almost a year when I last visited.

It isnโ€™t supposed to be this cold in December but itโ€™s friggin freezing!

Every day is like -5 to -10. Gg.

I was flown via Korean Air, which means bibimbap and K-drama! Hehe.

I forgot to do the web-check in and initially got stuck with a middle of the middle seat, but thank god i was with a family of three and they wanted to sit together so I swapped to the aisle seat.

Little wins in life. ๐Ÿ˜‚

Had a pretty decent flight too and got work done while watching โ€œStrong Woman Do Bong Soonโ€, which is actually a pretty cute drama haha.

My limited edition (? I assume.) T-money card with LINE friends on it!

Sooooo cute plz.

Got it from Incheon airportโ€™s train station, thereโ€™s a vending machine right outside!

When I finally found my apartment and got my stuff down/changed/headed out, it was like around 9pm already but Hongdae was still so lively!

Couldnโ€™t decide what to have so I ended up with some street side gyoza for dinner.

Yum!

IT SNOWED โ„๏ธ โ„๏ธ โ„๏ธ

Just a very light and windy one, but nonetheless felt so magical ๐Ÿ’•

And hereโ€™s what my airbnb looks like!

I paid less than $100 per night, very affordable. Location is great too cuz itโ€™s just on the outskirts of the busy area of Hongdae, across the road.

Isaac toast!

My first proper sit down and eat in Seoul and itโ€™s a sandwich ๐Ÿ˜‚

A really good one though!

All bundled up like bazhang but happy to eat!

You must visit StyleNanda at Hongdae if only to check out their Pink Pool Cafe ๐Ÿ˜‚

I have never seen a cafe more ridiculously photogenic.

There is a tiny little โ€œpoolโ€ inside which is completely unswimmable and everything is pink, from the walls to the sofas to the tables.

All the girls I saw in there were so busy snapping pictures of themselves non-stop ๐Ÿ˜‚

My kind of shoe heaven ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜

There is also a free photo booth machine inside StyleNanda so I shamelessly took pictures by myself hahaha

Bought these at one of the little boutiques along Hongdae! ๐Ÿ˜

And I could not resist buying booties – Was looking out for a black pair and bought these really nice suede black booties first, then saw those camel brown ones and fell in love so….

BUY THEM ALL.

Also bought a tiny bit of make up #selfcontrol itโ€™s very difficult not to just go cray cray and buy everything cos thereโ€™s just too much to buy!!

Total damage on Day 1 was probably close to $300 ๐Ÿ˜…

I met up with a friend and he brought me to this super good grill restaurant at Hannam, the beef here ๐Ÿ˜‹๐Ÿ˜‹๐Ÿ˜‹

I think I look prettier like this. LOL.

Itโ€™s so cold especially at night that itโ€™s best to bundle up with a beanie/ear muffs/face mask!

I wore 2 x heat tech, one knit top and then my coat.

I try to avoid wearing puffy coats if possible cos they make me look like bazhang. Lol so all my coats are nice nice ones ๐Ÿ˜‚
