[Travelogue] Korea Day 1 : First time having a haircut in Korea!

 Annyeong 안녕!

I'm currently in Korea!!


Omg, korea is full of super yummy food, super cute and affordable clothes!!

 on the way from incheon airport to seoul...

the tree looks like ginseng hahaha

Surprisingly Korea is not as cold as i feared it would be...

so despite it being late, we braved the night and went shopping at Enwa Women University!

they've got many food stalls on the street!

and they all look sooo nice!

 they even got GONGCHA!
i didn't know that haha

we went for dinner!

 somehow the kimchi in korea tastes saltier!
but still yummy!

 this is super super nice!
OMG.. and it's really cheap like $29 plus rice!

 pink dumplings!
super super satisfying meal, it's so delicious i start to worry about gaining tooo much weight haha

after that, we decided to go for a haircut in korea!
This salon looks posh so we decided to head inside to have our first korean haircut!

My hairstylist and new haircut!

I asked for korean hairstyle but requested for an above brows fringe.
not sure if that's korean-ish haha

she curled my hair too. it's really simple as compared to my usual japanese styles haha

Keith's haircut

He's smiling happily even though the skin cut is causing his ears to freeze hahaha

then we went to try this street food!

 there's fried chicken, mini harsh browns and rice cakes all mixed in sweet and spicy korean sauce

really very yummy!

i'll go fat for this hahah

and after that we went to have desserts!

A cafe for churros!

I love churros!

 freshly made churros

 with kawaii cafe decorations

star shaped light 
Pink coloured walls

Super cute cafe!
And korea has got a lot of kawaii cafes! 

hehehe selfie a little while waiting for the churros to be ready

 like my new hair? =D

 here! my lemon and cheese churro!

 with lemon yogurt smoothie!


today was so fun even though we only had a few hours to walk around korea before the shops close.

can't wait to start my day tomorrow!


here are my loots for today!

 Turtle neck white top - 5000won (~$6)
Red dress - 10000won (~$12)
