I woke up around 730 to get ready to leave, and shopped around myeongdong, dongdaemon flea market and a bit of namdaemon before I went back tothe hostel. I guess I didn't really sleep well because I was still clueless as to what we will be doing, and guilty at having cancelled all the previous plans made with Mk, Byeolyi, Daeyoung, Shawn and Eric (T . T) I'm so sorry, 미안해... I really want to go lotte world (and many other reasons)
took the bus schedule down when i passed by it just in case. yes i don't plan everything in advance hahahah
I passed by the flea market and chanced upon a seaweed shop, and thought I'll just get them here and the aunties were so friendly to me and gave me honey drink, but i realized later that the price ere is almost twice that you can get at supermarket, and I got cheated! Pui. And the next store I entered selling jackets was even worse, a random jacket that I picked costs about 530,000won, and I almost fainted (that's 600+sgd mind you) although the store owners were fantastically friendly and I really like the jacket, I definitely couldn't afford that much... I did come across other stores selling cheaper products for the cosmetic range and immediately grabbed them (must have been in a rampage to complete my unfinished shopping list) when i finished shopping it was around 11plus and I climbed the tall hilly back to see the couple leaving house.
Collected yesterday's spoils and started to pack them, before I went out to meet 0 and gogi dinosaur around 12plus, where I sort of made a wrong turn and end up at the wrong place, and went to the wrong exit and didn't know how to get to the correct exit. 0 called and spoke Korean to me and I was just stunned there (ok I knew he was asking me if I've eaten and all but I think I was temporarily bewitched). Then I proceeded to find exit 3 where they were supposed to be at but I couldn't find! Called for help, and they came over in less than a minute. Baka! I was just that close only!!! ！(◎_◎;) 我好失败. To think I walked this place just jn the morning only ugh
So anyway we went to lotte world - It was about half an hour ride with a single transfer, and Jimin gave me a coffee baba! Wahahahahaha just what I have been craving for since I came Korea. French vanilla flavor was awesome.
When we were at lotte they told me that they were going to be paying for everything today - holy cow wth!? Seriously, over hospitality is making me more embarrassed by the minute... I understand like a treat or what but the whole day is... Too extreme... And actually I didn't want to be treated like a guest, because I thought I was gonna be visiting Korea pretty often, and it's just not right for them to spend like this if I'm gonna be here all the time. Sighs... Guess I'm gonna have to think of ways to return this huge favor... I somehow get the feeling they are returning the hospitality shown by Tkh and steph when they were in Singapore and I felt like I shouldn't be the one deserving it...
Well since I tried about 15,000 times to say no and was rejected, go figure I should just indulge in being treated like a princess then!
i like this mask statue
didn't take this because it kept going round and round, think i'll puke
We started off with the inner theme park but there was a halloween parade going on so we stood to watch for a while.
hey i realised i took a row of heads! didn't mean to lol
more halloween parade
nothing to do, so pictures! jimin took this and he said very nice! (not nice la, look at the sunlight, aiyoh. bishh)
i think this photo that 0 took is nicer. whatever it is i look sucky in both. T___T
before we went for the first stop - sinbad's adventure. Both of them agreed that it was going to be a boring ride but they said we should start with something gentle before we move to the scarier ones. Hmmm, worried I'll puke at the start maybe!
nothing to do during the ride, it was slow and unsurprising so i snapped lots of photos instead
look, kong yong!
Anyway they told me that they used to come here almost everyday when they were back studying since they had some kinda pass but after that didn't frequent that often anymore. The whole place actually looks pretty familiar to me and I realize that o actually came here before about 10 yeas ago!! I can't believe I forgot about here so fast though...
After we took the Viking, we headed out to magic island to take the gyro swing (which was suppose to be a bigger version of Viking).
i took a creepy and cool photo of them while queuing, look at the darkness in their looks...
The wind was super cold but the feeling was so super shiok when you ride the swing!!
Since dino was feeling hungry we stopped for some hotdogs. I had a bulgolgi dog which is sweet and tasted damn nice ☆*:.｡. o(≧▽≦)o .｡.:*☆
I noticed that 0 didn't sit down, and he said it's cos it's so cold, but when he sat down he spilled the cider and Dino kept laughing at him. While laughing Dino dropped his hotdog toppings twice (it went like plop... Plop...!) ad 0 laughed back at him because Dino got his retribution!! And I prayed I wouldn't drop mine because I laughed at both of them (＞人＜;)
Had a cinnamon pancake on our way in too. lovely...!
and queued for the indoor roller coaster finally whole eying some fry-like squid sticks (I think both of them are kong yongs actually) - and 0 joked about how dino's head and upper body is all made up of stomach 위 and he has no brains since he ate so much, while Dino got back at him by saying 0 is an uncle since he's almost 30 years old. 0 then say that Dino will be uncle too 'next next next year' hahahah gosh and dino just gave a 'next next next year!? Wth you're still the uncle' look ＿|￣|○ oh, and we saw a very funny graffiti here saying 'Seulgi I love you!' and someone replied 'get out' at the bottom. Rocks!!
I sat with 0 for the ride (hmm somehow Jimin made him do it!?) and we caught 0's priceless expression camera. they all knew where the cameras were to prepare for their expression anyway!!
Went on a lot of other rides (the water rides were awesome, no queue for one of them!). we were just trying to avoid the water splashing on us and made a lot of noise when it kept turning and turning. wth...
and oh, this place was where the staircase to heaven was filmed!! this was the skating rink
and there's a memorabilia stand here too
as well as the merry go round the lovers rode in. i don't like merry go rounds, didn't take it
lotte world from 2nd floor here
passed by a photo attraction where you could climb in the bendy bars. after taking the photo 0 walked out, and then he walked back in.. because he left his bag inside!!! so blur. hahahahah. and he thought we didn't notice. lol.
we waited until Taeyang came to join us. Somehow I think they were sort of relieved because now we have someone much better at Japanese and English to help (^^;; Taeyang gave me a dongbangshinki poster and natural republic lipgloss (#^.^#) 감사해!! Group picture before we went to queue for gyro drop
because the passer by didn't take the full tower, taeyoung helped take it again
We then went for gyro drop
and boohoohoo I can't believe I deleted the video I took when we were high up there!!! The view was so nice from up there (~_~;) Arghhhh I'm so 먼천.. 난바보야 Grrrr oh well, there's one picture at least. Oh by the way if you're afraid of drops it's good to bring your camera up because I was sort of so distracted with videoing that I forgot we were dropping and totally didn't feel anything at all... Ooh and 0 didn't like this either haha. Ojisan already...! (＾ｰ^)ノ
And little dinosaur is hungry again. Seems like Taeyang had biscuits with her, but 0 took I away an guess where he hid it?
The 'I'm so hungry' expression on Dino is so cute... And when he realized the biscuits were just in his hood! Lol!!
Next we dashed for Atlantis because the queue got shorter! We ate this corn and some yakitori while waiting and the corn we ate tasted like Mochi! 맜시개다! I want to eat it again... It was so super cold out here, and the guys started talking about having cold hands and a warm heart. Dino claims that guys with cold hands have a warm heart and 0 went to put his hands on the wooden panel to make it cold Σ(￣。￣ﾉ)ﾉ eyrshhhh what are you doing!! I do prefer guys with warm hands because mine is always so bloody cold, and it was seriously like ice that day.
And Atlantis was a recommendation by Saerom, I'm glad we got to ride it!! Best ride ever!!! Wheeeheeee!!!!
Done with the ride and saw a statue which they stopped to imitate, and Taeyang got called a be pan sha because she didn't do the expression - 0 looks terribly funny hurhur
we stopped briefly for a performance which i didn't really understand... i think it was a very visual based performance. snapped pictures eventhough i don't know what was going on lol
and an angel dropped down...
and there's the finale...
video of a part of the performance... but not very interesting
