SOUTH KOREA 2015 Day 6: (Oh Gosh the memories of Day 6!!!): M Plaza, Ehwa Womans University and Café J Holic

This is the last day we’ll be spending in Korea, and we made sure we covered a lot of places.

The last time I went to Korea, my sister teased me that I did not even try wearing a hanbok – Korea’s traditional clothing. I actually forgot about it, to be honest.

So this time, the two of us made sure to try wearing them. We did at M Plaza, located beside the ZARA store in MyeongDong. They open at exactly 10:30am, and they have limited slots. We went up at around 10:35 and were given the 10:50 slot.

You can wear the hanboks and take pictures of it for 10 minutes. It’s actually just enough for you to enjoy the clothing.

After that, we hopped on the train and went to Ehwa Womans University. I have plans of enrolling to this school – I’m still developing a master plan – but the atmosphere was really enough for me to dream it big.

We went through the Ehwa Fashion Street, and though I wasn’t really able to look at Hongdae’s fashion street, I think Hongdae has a bigger selection of clothings. They have SPAO and Forever 21 to begin with. HAHA.

After Ehwa, we went back to MyeongDong to finally eat at Café J Holic. Since my ultimate bias is serving his sweet time in the army, this was the closest place I can get to him.

You get a signed plastic when you purchase. It’s like the plastic container of the receipt. We also got a sort of loyalty card that they will stamp whenever you buy drinks.

At the first floor of the building of Café J Holic, you can buy the infamous Honey Butter Chips that has sent probably the whole of Korea to a frenzy. Even your top idols are craving for the snack. And of course, I didn’t pass up the opportunity to hoard 3. Just three, because I don’t think it’ll fit into our luggage anymore. T_T I regretted that a lot because when I tried the chips, yes, they were really good. And yes, you will really crave for it.

After buying the last few items of pasalubong for family at SPAO (record-breaking 15 minutes of shopping for Mom, Dad, and Kuya) we went back to the guesthouse, re-packed our hand carry, and boarded the bus to the airport.

The last activity was to claim tax refund and I will write about that in another post (if I get around to it, huhu).

We bid good bye to Korea (with a number of things in mind because Day6 had a gig at Hongdae that same night), and of course, promised to go back again!
