CutiCuti: South Korea Day 2 - Namsan Tower / Teddy Bear Museum / Myeongdong

Assalamualaikum. 안녕!

Previous:
Everland Resort

Was too busy chasing deadline of the photobook's voucher I bought months ago made me forgot about this blog. P to the Yo! Fortunately I have submitted my order last night which the expiry date is today. Lain kali sila bertangguh bernanti2 lagi ah Bie! 

Ok lets continue where I last stopped. After Everland Resort, we went back to the hostel. Refreshed. Part ni the most crucial as to avoid mood untuk ke laut. Sudah penat berjalan, muka pun berminyak, kusam...badan melekit2 macam covered with dust hence decision untuk balik hostel & mandi adalah paling bijak.

Namsan Tower is located up the hill. We walked from the hostel to the cable car station. It's the same route to Namsan Guesthouse 1. 

Shop along the way up. Perlu snap sebab...it's fink! What else could it be, kan.
IF I remembered it correctly...it took us less than 5 minutes to reach the stairs heading to the cable car station. Ndak sempat berpeluh pun. But walking the uphill was truly an exercise; at least to the half-asleep moi.
Last year, we queued for the cable car at the left side of the building. The mirrored one. It was a bit inconvenient; terpaksa bersesak sebab sempit. This year, we queued at the right side of the building. Entrance door is under that pink or red? fluorescent light. 

I found out later that the area where we queued last year was only temporary. They were undergoing some renovation works to expand the ticket counter & waiting area at that time. The new queuing area has more ample space. Visitors no longer feel like they're being herded into a narrow room. 
Apart from the cable car & other public transportation e.g bus or taxi; another option to go down from Namsan Tower is by stairs. We decided for a return cable car ride. Bukan risau sebab malam, tapi malas mau menapak turun tangga.

We had fully utilized our superwalkertapaki the whole day at Everland hence we opted for a less energy consumption exercise. Lagipun dari stesen cable car tu, we still have to walk down the hill to get back to our hostel. Exercise sungguh.
Inside the cable car. Someone was forced to overcome her acrophobia; once more! Kejam ndak kejam kami membuli. Bravo lah two fear factor challenges for her in just one day. And congratulations for being able to control ur phobia while we're in the cable car. Lepas ni praktis naik cable car banyak kali, insha Allah akan hilang fobia tu. 
Dusk in Myeongdong.
Tengah tergantung di atas cable...lucky ndak da orang berdrama mau turun sebab takut. She did enjoyed this view I guess although not as much as we did. Aku yang second time ni pun ikut berkagum. Siap berdiri melekat sama cermin just to get a clearer view.

Annyeong Namsan Tower! Or also known as N Seoul Tower. 오랜만이야! It's been more than a year since we first met.
In front of the entrance to the Teddy Bear Museum. Lucky enough Ms G didn't smile. Else memang picture ni akan nampak scary. Or it's rather scary when she posed like that? 
Bear ni setia menanti pengunjung yang datang. Sudah masuk last time, tapi tetap masuk lagi. And impressed I am still. 

Ada orang bestfriend sama bears sekarang. Bukan alang2 these bears...siap pakai hanbok tau. Very traditional a feeling.
This Bear Gangnam Style is new. Psy's Gangnam Style indeed left a big positive impact to South Korea's music industry. And their tourism as well. 
I was awed when she told me she knows about Princess Hour. No wonder beria kiss Prince Bear segala. 
Super nice wallpaper u have there, Mr Little Bear!!
Applying this to my life...
Alhamdulillah. Finally!!! Last time ndak sempat jejak kaki ke N Seoul Tower's Locks of Love. Though it is just next to Namsan Tower. This trip harus jadikan realiti. 
How lovers expressed their love. But the idea to throw the keys away; especially down the hill...where there are houses isn't wise at all. Yes? It could cause injury. Also damages to facilities. 
The chair is designed like that. So couple will naturally glide...and meet each other at the center? But I still want to believe Ms G caused the chair to split into two. Eh?
Apart from attaching the padlocks at the fences, couples have other option as well. Memang tangan paling selim & panjang jak dapat seluk masuk & hang their padlocks inside. 
And I know, my not-so-tiny hand would never fit. A dream it would forever be to leave my padlock farther inside. Wait! Padlock secara solo adalah unacceptable here, Bie. Come next time with the other half, barulah termanis declare chenta di sini. 
Since malam masih muda, we decided to spend the evening with window shopping. Untung stay di hostel ni, one of Seoul's famous shopping district is only a walking distance away. Sudahlah underground passage dijadikan underground mall juga...sangat berambang mata.
Sama poster pun jadilah! Pose semata2 favorite artist gue. KHJ-ssi. Pastu sibuk upload di IG & tagged peminat bersama, si hoobae kesayangan.
Fenomena super moon that evening; we witnessed it in Seoul! Friends back home whined about not being able to watch the phenomenon due to the bad haze that attacked Malaysia at that time. Feeling lucky, sungguh! Syukran Allah.

We left the area after wandering around...full schedule the next day & we need to wake up early for we will be travelling out of Seoul. zZZzz!

Rasanya kalau pegi different season, akan ada feeling berbeza. Wah tu dia ayat chenta tegar Korea. Perlu gigih bergambar kan DJ, bukan selalu dapat ke sana. Xpe orang duk pelik, janji gambar ada. Next time kena gi lagi, saya pun kalau ke sana memang nak gi N Tower. Insha Allah.
