South Korea Trip Part 5: Day 4

Check out my post on: 


Busan City

Our plan on day 4 was going to Busan city by bus. Busan is the second largest city in South Korea. So, more or less the city is as 'alive' as Seoul. We took train from Hongik University Station to Seoul National University at Line 2. Then from Seoul National University station we changed train at Line 3 to Terminal Bus Express Station. We get the bus ticket at the first floor of the bus terminal. The regular express bus ticket costs us about 23,000 won and the journey took us about 4 hours. 

Masjid Al-Fatah and Cappadocia Turkish House


Once we arrived at Busan bus station, we took train at Line 1 Metro to Dusil Station (32 mins). We followed the Exit 8 and walked about 200m until we reach kedai tayar Hankook. You can look for a signboard of "ISLAM CENTRE" just opposite the petrol station. As we arrived, we were greeted by a Korean mosque guard/ staff who can speak Indonesian language very well. When we inform him that we are from Malaysia, he welcomed us "oh dari Meleziaa ya pak, sila sila masuk boleh berehat dulu kalau mau, ada tempat berehat jugak untuk wanita di sana" and he lead us the way to the resting room for muslimat. So nice! We perform Jama' prayers and then had lunch at Cappadocia Turkish Kebab house next to the mosque. Oh, I haven't get the chance to took Masjid Al-Fatah picture because it was raining at that time. So we just rush to get into the mosque, prayed and grab our lunch. 

This marinated & grilled chicken skewer costs us 8000 won (RM24). yummy! 

Right after lunch we proceeded to our accommodation in Haeundae. 

This is our home studio apartment host by Ms. Haesook Yang that we booked online via airbnb.com. You can contact her via WeChat at +821082334622 should you need to rent her house in Busan. 
The studio apartment was fully furnished, we had all the cooking utensils at the 'kitchen' so that we can cooked our 'Brahim' we brought from home. Some of you might wondering how much is the cost of stay at this apartment. Lemme give you the calculations:

We paid RM 336 per night (for 6 peoples). We stayed for 2 nights. 
So,
RM 336 x 2 = RM 673

Cleaning Fees = RM 34

Airbnb Service Fee = RM 85

Security Deposit = RM 418 (some accommodation may not ask for security deposit likewise our stay in Seoul). 

Total = RM1209

Gwangalli Beach

We went to Gwangalli beach on our first night in Busan. Gwangalli beach is the second most popular beach in Busan after Haeundae (at the place we stayed). We were in awe with the iconic 'Diamond Bridge' as it has colourful bright lights all along it. Well, I'm not sure how long is the bridge but the colourful light was for sure the main attraction for the tourists who came to this place. There was an information board at the beach where you get information on the interesting places you can visit in Busan. The board was quite informative as your can view the 360 degree angle pictures of the place. We was looking for information on Gamcheon cultural village, Jagalchi fish market and Taejongdae Park as the next day we wanted to visit those places. 
We did not had dinner anywhere outside as we did not found any information on Halal makan place at this place. So, we deliberately walked slowly to the metro station and stopped by at the groceries store to grab some banana milk, bread and eggs for tomorrow morning's breakfast. 


Coming up next: we went to Gamcheon Cultural park, had lunch at Jagalchi fish market and spend the evening at Taejongdae Park.

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:)
