Edisi: From Seoul to Yongpyeong Ski Resort to Itaewon

That man on the left wearing the green soldier uniform; might be a trainee only. Or what we referred to as PLKN trainee. It is compulsory for the Korean to enrol in military. Semangat juang negara mereka adalah tinggi ok. Years of being under the Japanese rule, during the war; they somehow embodied a strong patriotism spirit. The Koreans are very proud of their own country. And that's what I highly respect about them.
 Ehem...eheeeeeeeeeeeeeeeem. While waiting for the bus. At the parking bay of Dong Seoul Bus Terminal, bound for Yongpyeong Ski Resorts. 
Tall building scattered around the city. Just like in their drama/movie. Fine, aku memang ndak sah kalau ndak mention pasal Kdrama/Kmovie kan. Sila terima dengan paksarela please.
 Gangbyeon Station. The pedestrian crossings are extensively utilized. This was taken from inside the bus soon after leaving Dong Seoul Bus Terminal; bound for Hoenggye. 
 Foggy window tells me enough of the cold weather outside. We arrived at Hoenggye Intercity Bus Terminal after 3 hours of journey from Seoul. 
 First time in my life! What would u expect? Harus lah kan aku jaks di situ. Di KK ndak da benda ni. Kak Sya jalan terlajak ke depan.
We took the free shuttle bus to the resort in front of the post office (behind me near tiang yang ada garis kuning hitam tu).
 I've always want to have this lied before my eyes ever since I was a kid.

Tu dia. Tourists tegar. Siap ada angin bayu meniup manja rambut.
 Their version of Mc'D.
Maybe next time, ok Pijah.
Uri chingu merangkap guide kami. Gomawo!
Bila lah akan terlaksana impian untuk main ski. Or snowboarding.
 We took the gondola to reach the peak.
Reached the Dragon Peak.
Alhamdulillah. It's a dream came true! 
Verangan adalah perlu. What's with his poster up there? Oh yeah, u got it right. Some of the scenes in the infamous K-drama; Winter Sonata was filmed here. 
I had so much fun I totally forgot my numb foot.
 Us ladies. Having so much fun up there despite the coldness.

 MakSu & Yours Truly in the gondola on our way down from The Peak.
YongPyong Hotel Condo & Apartment at the resort. Located on the ridge of Mount Balwangsan it is the first domestic ski resort opened sometime in '75.

It would be great to have the opportunity to stay there & experience playing with the snow late night. Gerenti lah kan muka jadi kebas segala. 
View of Seoul at night. We took a bus from the resort straight to the city. Hopped off the bus somewhere near Hyundai Department Store after nearly 1.5hours stuck in a traffic congestion. 
Took the subway to Itaewon. Jumpa kedai with Halal sign adalah sangat nikmat!!! Biar lah kebab tu sebiji RM12 sekalipun!!

Our dinner at a Turkish restaurant where Lisa did her part time job during her uni year. The menu was briyani kambing. Paratha bread. Lamb curry. Chic curry. Finally!!! Jumpa nasi!!! Super sedap!

Was supposed to visit the only mosque in Seoul but because most of the ladies were already tired...and the idea of climbing more steep road made them immediately gave up with the plan. Letih oii! Walau aku adalah sedikit hampa...*wink at Ernie* but never mind that for I have already plan a trip to SK with Bunda. Cuma ndak tahu bila lah kunun akan tercapai impian itu. Insya Allah.

Mari doa sama2...gomawo. Yay!!
