Day 1 Itinerary (Part 1)

Hello! Omg I’m finally blogging about my Korea trip from winter last year. It’s gonna be a super duper long series because I was there for 15 days so bear with me if it gets a little too draggy. As usual, you can make use of the tags to see all my travelogue entries and if you have any questions pertaining to the places I’ve visited, just leave me a comment down below/email me/tweet me.

Day 1 started off with meeting the girls for our annual Christmas get-together at the airport before my flight lol. Everyone’s schedule was so tight that the only free time we could squeeze out was dinner on Boxing Day which is right before my flight O.O Nevertheless still happy that we managed to meet up hehe. I also spammed my expired Christmas themed polaroids with them and made Lirong take home my gift from the gift exchange to safe keep because it was not allowed on flights (perfumed diffuser from Juyin!) together with my polaroid camera and films cos I didn’t want to bring it to Korea (confirm super lazy to take one so I just didn’t bother with the additional weight).

We had a red-eye flight out of Singapore to Seoul via Asiana Airlines. Wanted to take Singapore Airlines but the price was too expensive (no promotions T.T) so we decided to take Asiana Airlines. We got a pretty good deal for the airfare (around SGD740++) given that it was peak holiday season and direct flight too. My Korean friend was telling me that I made the right choice in choosing Asiana Airlines over Korean Air because it has a better reputation among the locals plus there was also the huge fiasco over Nut-Rage HAHAHA 땅콩!!

Travelled in a group of 5 this time too! I seem to always travel in groups of 5 to Korea lol but this time round was more fun because all of us are K-Pop fans so we can all fangirl together hahaha! Plus no one will judge me if I stand at the cd store opening albums to check my photocards or purposely head to a cafe owned by a K-pop idol :P

My seating partners who allocated me the seat next to a stranger -.-” Gizibes!!!! Flight was quite bad because some kid kept crying non-stop plus the dryness of the air made everything super static. It was just uncomfortable for me the entire journey but not to the fault of the airline really. My return flight was alot better. I always like how they serve Korean meals on board and I ordered the bibimbap despite feeling quite full from my ramen dinner although I barely took 2 mouthfuls cos I squeezed too much gochujang (red pepper paste) onto my rice and it was super spicy T.T
