Day 9 Lotte World

to be honest i don't really know what i was doing for the better half of the day.

but now that i'm typing, i remembered i was washing my socks.

sometimes i don't mind waiting, but give me an accurate estimate of when you will be done, so i can occupy myself with things while i'm waiting. if you're gonna take half an hour, don't tell me 10mins. because i could have finished an episode of my anime instead of watching the crowd go by. and if you're gonna take 2 hours, i'd sooner go watch 2 episodes of my drama. that kind of thing.

so we woke up, headed over to the office and i was told to wait 2 hours. i mean after yesterday's endless waiting, at least now i've learnt to ask before i wait into nothingness. so since it was such a long time, i decided i would wash my socks. my socks don't exactly stink, but it's stuck with random dirt. the good thing about winter is nothing you wear will stink because you just don't sweat. so you can wear the same pair of socks for a week and it will still not smell bad. not that i'm gonna do that... =_=

so we set off around 2pm thankfully, and reached lotte in time for the 4pm entrance.

it was surprisingly, super crowded. every ride requires at least a 20minutes waiting time, even the lamest ride of all. so we started out by eating popcorn. ahhaha. shucks. think this was a lotte food trip more than rides.
after we watched the very super short and mini parade, we decided to go for viking.

and it is a 20mins ride. and we got the middle seats (which is so not fun). the kids were all so not scared.

ooh but there was this very cute guy who looked like a mini jung il woo sitting just opposite at the corner. the camera can't quite capture him. he seems about 15. SO YOUNG.
we went to get the magic pass for sindbad while queuing, which is later on, not very necessary. but still.

we then went out to magic island to take the rides outside.

but horrors of horrors... everything was closed!!! except this 3D theatre. and we had to wait like 15mins before the next show started and it was freeeeeeeeeezing. perhaps that's why all the rides were closed.guhhh.

so this theatre is where you look at bizarre scenes (that are supposed to be scary) through a cat's eyes. but the storyline is just not interesting at all =_=

went back in thereafter since there's just not much to do. ooh passed by this mirror maze. this was the girl 00 went gaga over the last time!

and korea really has a lot of these visual interactive panels. here you can write your notes on their samsung notes, and it gets projected at the bottom layer screen.

we went on another 3D ride that's in the egyptian period, where cleopatra appears frequently. zz reminds me of my isis cos.

and it seemed that sindbad's queue was really short so we joined the queue when it's like 10 mins to 7pm. (magic pass starts at 730). managed to get in within 5mins, and came out just in time for the parade!

took a clip of almost all the floats here:
the onslaught of LEDs were really dazzling. i particularly liked the egyptian wings.

there was also this very cute dog running in front of us. just looking at it makes me laugh. hahaha.

right after the parade there was a kpop musical so we sat down to have a look.

they performed pieces from SNSD, Big Bang etc and had soundracks from Queen Seon Deok, F4 etc. it was pretty hilarious! i like the last singing/dancing battle, where they used synchronised with the digital background to enhance the effects. pretty neat!

since there was not much further to do and the good rides still needed at least 40mins, we decided to head out and have dinner. didn't get to take a single roller coaster! T_T oh well.

spotted lotte mart and did all my ramen and kimchi shopping there. ended up with a hell lot of stuff to carry. we also ate our dinner there, at a sushi conveyor belt. at just around 10+ plates (less than 15 plates i'm sure). however the total went over 36k. omg. remind me to never have sushi again in korea, even if it's nice!!!

with all our plastic bags, we went to search for our bus station (oh why do we always end up doing this?!). i bought a pair of boots on my way out since my sole was falling out, and threw the old pair away. then we walked out and back and realised we were lost. finally managed to find the bus stop after like 15-20mins to walking/running about. T_T i must remember my route next time...

i ate the spiciest cup ramen that night - yes, you finally get to torture me, so happy eh... =_=
