South Korea Trip Part 2: Day 1

Check out my post on South Korea Trip Part 1

Our South Korea trip begin with our arrival at Gimhae International Airport, Busan at 6.00 a.m. Why Busan? The air ticket was cheaper by RM200++ to Busan compared to Seoul. 
We have two options to travel to Seoul which were by bus or by KTX. 

Option 1:
Take bus (Busan to Seoul)- visit this website: www. kobus.co.kr/ purchase at Busan bus terminal counter 
Adult Fare: 23,000 (Regular express): RM79
₩ 34,000 (Deluxe Express) : RM117
The journey from Busan to Seoul is approximately 4 hours 15 minutes 

Option 2: 
Via KTX (Busan to Seoul)- purchase at Busan bus terminal counter 
Fare: ₩ 45,000 (RM150) 
The journey from Busan to Seoul is approximately 3 hours 
Our original plan was to take bus from Busan to Seoul to save money. But we changed the plan as we wanted to arrive early and visit places in Seoul.   
The first thing we did once we arrived in Busan was getting the T-money card because we need to take the subway train to Busan Station. 

T-money price: ₩ 2,500. You can buy this T-money at the vending machine or at convenient store like 7-eleven. There are many places you can top-up your T-money so don't worry too much. You can use this T-money for taxi, bus and subway.  
We stayed at Hongik University area in Seoul. Basically this is our route from Gimhae Airport to Hongik University. 

After we have checked in the apartment at Hongik University, we unpacked food for meal and ready for Zuhr and Asr prayers at the apartment. 

Itaewon Mosque

We then headed to Itaewon, a famous place with its muslim food and mosque.We had dinner at a halal food restaurant named Makan. You can find many other Muslim tourists especially those from Indonesia and many of them resides at this place.
You can find this restaurant after walking few minutes from Itaewon station Line 6 Exit No. 3.
The food price ranges from ₩ 6,000 to 12,000 (Approximately RM40 per meal). 
Itaewon Mosque, Seoul



Coming up next: We went to Dongdaemun cultural park in the morning, had lunch at Myeondong street, spend the evening at Namsan N-Seoul tower and finally head to our street food mission back at Myeondong.

Saving the best for the last-Me!

Assalamualaikum w.b.t..
B's nature of work leaves me with no choice but to be independent. His work schedule knows no weekends and public holiday. But a kaki jalan I am by nature and nurture,what if it's only me and Aulia'? bring it on! Nak keluar jugak! I thought  it was impossible at first but naaa, practice makes perfect, I am so used to it already, you'll be surprised of what I can do with only one hand. Haha The skills develop naturally. From folding stroller and do groceries shopping while pushing the cart and her stroller? I have done all that. But there are time I do need hands from strangers, and kudos to Malaysians, they're helpful. And I think this is the perfect bonding time because Aulia' is with her baby sitter during the weekdays.


So there are times, I'd love to doll up, but now I have a plus one! How? I doll her up as well! luckily she's a daughter, dear God thanks for being so understanding! I am grateful! Tutu you say?! Of course! and…

DIY Dulang Hantaran Fresh Flowers

Assalamualaikum wbt..

Last week was my BIL E-day. So I was assigned by my MIL to do the 'Dulang Hantaran' and it decorations including all the goodies inside the dulang.. since this is only the engagement event, not so much personal items to be included in the dulang except for the rings.. both for merisik and engagement..
Since last time during my Nikah day, I did the DIY dulang hantaran using the artificial flowers and this time around I was thinking to do it with the fresh flowers. I purposely wanted it that way just because I can save a lot of time (since I am way too busy with my PhD study and I have to travel to and fro KL-JB) and at the same time we can avoid the hustle of keeping the dulang covered with dust in the store room. Lol..talking about experience huh!
And most importantly.. we can save a lot of money.. Lemme show you the trick..

Sending off dulang for fresh flower decorations can cost you up to RM75 to RM150 per tray excluding the items inside the dulang. Mi…

Girls trip to Sabah

Memorial weekend after I had my HSG test, Mary, Kak Ju, Nini and I got to fly down to KK to spend three blissful days hanging out with our dear friend from uni, Jessica. The five of us studied together in UPM SIX years ago so we decided a reunion was a great excuse for me to ditch the husband and my little girl and have some serious girl-time in Sabah. Lucky for us Jess is an amazing host and planned everything out perfectly.

A few of the highlights were our stay at J Residence, the upside-down house in Tamparuli, Kundasang wet market, Desa Cattle Farm Kundasang, Luanti River Kelah fish spa and Sabah tea farm.

It was so refreshing to be with old friends and enjoy my first trip to north Borneo... and I can officially declare that I have covered most of the states in Malaysia (haven't cover Labuan yet!). yipsss!

My Instagram update for this photo: Waking up to this! -Our stay at J Residence Kundasang, the view is so breathtaking :)
Enjoying my morning view:)
