1 April 2015 - BBQ dinner at 맛찬들왕소금구이

We came here for our dinner.
Sorry, didn't take a good picture that captured the name of this restaurant, 맛찬들왕소금구이.
We thought of ordering one serving of each type of meat but were told that we had to order at least 2 servings of each type of meat. So, we ordered the first two types of meat, ie pork belly and neck meat(I think so. Correct me if I'm wrong) with 2 servings each. Please correct me if I have wrongly labelled the types of meat.

Nearest subway station would be Seomyeon Station, exit 7.
This BBQ restaurant is also near to 삼광보리밥, where we had our lunch earlier on.
We went to Lotte dept for some grocery shopping and bought dessert from Sweet Monster Cheese Cake. I had always wanted to try their cheesecake and finally I had the chance! So happy ^^

We ordered the Traditional Tiramisu Cheesecake.
They had a promotion of free ice cream for every purchase of cheesecake.
The ice cream was too sweet and quite milky.
I like milky ice cream but not the sweetness ㅠㅠ
Much to my disappointment...
Too much cocoa powder and I felt I am eating powder.
The cheesecake was pretty light and I preferred a stronger cheese flavour.
Too much tiramisu which made the bottom of the cake too wet for my liking.
Well, I will try another flavour if I have the chance again ^^
A row of 포장마차 Pojangmacha along the street outside Lotte Hotel/Dept.
Basically, they were selling the same food.
We wanted to try but it was too cold to stand there to eat...

1 April 2015 - Lovely stroll along 온천천 Oncheoncheon ^^

We made a trip to 온천천 Oncheoncheon after lunch.
Dongnae station, take Exit 4 and made a right U turn upon exit.
We walked straight for about less than 10 mins before coming across this small patch of rapeflowers and some cherry blossom along the two sides of the slopes.

More cherry blossoms as we walked further down.

Wish I can stay here....
It was actually pretty cold but we couldn't bear to leave this beautiful place ㅋㅋㅋ
So glad to be back in Busan once again! 

1 April 2015 - First meal in Busan ^^

I had 2 friends with me most of the time in this trip. I brought them to this popular eatery,삼광보리밥 in Seomyeon for lunch. Long queue but the waiting time was quite alright. We waited about 20mins?? The lady thought we didn't know what the eatery offer. She brought me into the eatery and showed me what the rest of the customers were eating lol
The eatery is popular for its 김치전골 (Kimchi Pork with ramyeon hotpot).
Cheap right??
I think they don't have one person serving for this dish..
My poor friends had to bear with my phototaking as they salivate at the bubbling hotpot ㅋㅋㅋ
Poor thing right....This was just the beginning
Dear couple : Thanks for being so tolerance not just for this meal but throughout the whole trip ㅎㅎㅎㅎㅎ
All of us agreed that this meal was cheap & yummy!!
They used thin pork belly slices(which I think its not expensive), loads of kimchi and one packet of ramyeon(i think its one packet lol).
Highly recommened if you are staying in Seomyeon ^^

Seomyeon Station, exit 7 would be the nearest subway exit to reach this eatery.
It is next to Lotte Hotel.
Angel hotel is circled in red.

1 April 2015 - Angel Hotel 엔젤호텔

My Spring trip 2015 back to my second home began with a trip back to Busan and followed by Seoul. Yes. Busan again ^^ I don't know why but I just love Busan so much ㅋㅋㅋ Got on the night flight on 31 March 2015 and reached Incheon airport around 6.15am. Collected my lugguage and took the Arex to Gimpo airport for my domestic flight to Busan. 
I chose to stay in Seomyeon this time. Took the limousine bus from Gimhae airport to Seomyeon and got off at the stop "서면쥬디스 태화 Seomyeon Judes Tehwa", the stop right after Lotte Hotel. Couldn't remember how long was the bus ride but I paid 6000 won for the fare. Was it about 35mins??? Oh no..I can't recall ㅠㅠ I knew I got on the bus at 11am.
It would be good to tell the bus driver that you want to alight at "서면쥬디스 태화 Seomyeon Judes Tehwa" becos I didn't see the stop and the driver almost drove past it after the stop at Lotte Hotel. "서면쥬디스 태화 Seomyeon Judes Tehwa" is quite immediate after Lotte Hotel, so you got to be alert once the bus reaches Lotte Hotel. I got off diagonally opposite Judes Tehwa. My accommodation was opposite the road but no traffic light in I got to carry my heavy luggage down the stairs and use the underpass to get to the opposite side. Of course, it was another not so short flight up to the main road...*Sweat
Yup! I stayed in Angel Hotel this time.
Very convenient and good service unlike what was mentioned in the online comments about unfriendly lady receptionist.
I didn't encounter any lady receptionist during my stay ㅋㅋㅋ
I was standing about 4m away from the hotel to take this picture.
 This guy from the hotel came forward to lend me a helping hand with my luggage.
Much appreciated!
This guy is the type who does not smile much but takes his work seriously. 

Although he hardly smile but he is really helpful person ^^
The nearest subway station to Angel hotel is Jeonpo Station, exit 7.
Takes about 3 mins walk ^^
I took the taxi when I checked out the hotel at 9am for Gimhae airport.
It cost me about 25 mins to reach Gimhae airport.
The taxi fare was 13600won.
I reached the hotel about 11.50am and was able to check in before the official check in time cos room was available.
So soooo thankful for this!
Now, let me show you my room which I adored so much ^^
I booked this Korean style room becos I love sleeping on the floor ㅋㅋㅋ  
Clean, cosy and comfortable ^^
The ceiling ^^

Very pleased with my room, location of the hotel and friendly staff. It was not super easy to locate the hotel on my first day of arrival, but I soon get the hang of it. It was actually very easy. If anyone ask me for recommendation of hotels in Busan, I will strongly recommend Angel Hotel ^^ Actually, two of my friends were staying in this hotel during the same period as me and they loved the location too.

안녕하세요 여러분 !!
Just came back from second home last night. Still feeling tired and down with a bad flu as well. Don't know why I felt more tired in this trip as compared to my previous trips back home. Maybe becos I was already feeling a bit sick before my trip. Anyway, I feel better now after going for some Gua ShaCupping and acupuncture this afternoon. It was certainly a chore to pull myself out of bed to visit the Chinese physician but I knew I got to do it today. Updating of blog will be slower than usual...(although previously was already quite slow lol) cos I just had a change of job scope and I don't think I will have time to update my blog during weekdays.
