Kez brought us to her the idol merchandise shops she frequents and I got myself a whole load of 2PM stuff. Still contemplating if I should rebuild my DBSG collection here. SHOULD I?
On the way back, PS and I stopped at a roadside stall to have our meal. The ahjusshi there was so nice. He heard us speaking Chinese/English and asked if we were Chinese. We said we were from Singapore and he began talking to us. It was a little hard to understand his Chinese (Yes, he's from China! So many of the stall owners are.) because he's probably from the less-central area of China. He speaks good Korean though. While we were eating, we realised we couldn't finish our food. Which was odd because we only ordered 6 pieces of fried stuff. I later realised he probably gave us more. And when we were finishing our mini-kimbap, he gave us a whole serving of ddeokbokki/rice cakes. And the best thing was, at the end our bill was 3,000 KRW, but he only took 2x1,000 KRW notes from my hand. TOO NICE OF HIM. T.T I left telling him I'll definitely be back.
On our way to Hongdae earlier, we met two nice ahjumma ladies who PS wanted to give her seat to. They told us to sit and that it was okay. Then they started debating on how we didn't look Korean and I told them we're from Singapore. To which, they asked me why I spoke Korean and when did I start learning. And they commented I spoke well and thanked me for learning their language! (SO NICE OF THEM. T.T) And halfway, they even offered us banana-flavoured gum.
I've been so blessed. It's like God put these angels around to help make my days better.
Koko Krunch all the way from home.
Oh right. I headed to church on Sunday. The one I went to the other time, Yeoido Full Gospel Church. I got to hear the founder, Pastor Yonggi Cho speak. The previous time I went, it was one of the other senior pastors. He was good. And the worship definitely needs some time to get used to. It's pretty traditional still, with choirs, soprano singers and organs played at the back.
Naengmyeon/Cold Noodles. Seriously good and cheap. 3,500 KRW. (SGD $4.30)
