Seoul so far ♥

So of course I didn't get to update my blog >3>; But now I have some time since I'm staying in a guesthouse in Hongdae for 3 days by myself before I'm going to my friend's place on the 21st. I was a bit scared to suddenly be by myself in the beginning after staying at my unni's place, but it's not that bad and you get to meet other people traveling too and so n_n

I already have over 200 pics from the past days, if you know me on facebook, you might have seen them there. I'll just choose a couple highlights since I don't want to picture spam (too much) >w<;

I'm too lazy to put watermarks on all the pics, so just in case: All pictures are taken and owned by me.
Theses pics are from Wednesday til Saturday which was my birthday ^^
Minzi's house where I stayed. So lovely ♥
And as I mentioned, they had some really cute dogs! I miss them :'( On my birthday, they came running into my room in the morning waking me up by jumping into my bed and start licking me X'D

Korean dinner! I love Korean food ♥
This was at Minzi's mom's restaurant. So good too!
These are from Myeongdong, one of the famous shopping districts in Seoul. There's a lot of nice shops, but it is also VERY crowded..! Especially in the weekends.

Potato peeled on a stick~
This is in Insadong, the traditional area of Seoul. All signs must be in Korean here, even the foreign shops and cafés such as Starbucks. Here, it's mostly Korean traditional stuff you get or souvenirs. And of course, there's Kpop souvenirs everywhere as well X'D
In 'the Rabbit's Mug' cafe in Kangnam area, which is popular for cafés and such. They had my favorite ice coffee with condensed milk ♥
And then some pics from my birthday :3 We went to Abgujeong and waited at a café for our friends to come. Afterwards we went to a drinking/eating place where we stayed for some hours, eating nice food and playing Korean drinking games. They had some really nice drinks! Kiwi-soju-juice was definitely the best ♥

This is a classic Korean drinking game where you have a glass of beer, and a shot glass inside the beer where people take turns pouring in soju. The one that makes the shot glass drop have to bottom up the whole glass of beer mixed with soju XP I got it once >_>;
And my awesome birthday cake that I got from Minzi's mom ;A: It was matcha (green tea) cake. Sooo good ♥
Afterwards we went to karaoke :P That was.. A lot a fun haha!!
That was it for now! And I'm offically 21 (2ne1 :P) yay! ♥ Or something.. I don't feel any older though haha, at least not my mental age XD

More pictures to come from the next days..! As I mentioned, I'm in Hongdae, an area popular for clubs and bars.

Stay tuned!
