Trendy glasses at 10,000 won!

After some loots, Daddy E spotted a saloon that says 10,000 won (~S$12) and decided to get a haircut!

With consultation, hair wash, haircut, it was quite a good experience for Daddy E. While he was getting his haircut, me and Baby E snucked into a cafe.

Yes, we went in because Baby E saw the big ice-cream standee and insisted she “needs” an ice-cream. Despite the cold weather, I obliged. Haha!

13:00 – 22:00 | Hongik University station (Line 2), Exit 5

Hongdae is probably the bigger brother of Ewha Woman’s University Fashion Street. On a bigger scale, the whole place feels young and vibrant.

It was full, so we only took a quick tour at their gift shop.

And too soon, it was time for dinner again!

I really regret not taking a photo of this BBQ place we went as it’s so value-for-money! It’s located along the Mapo-gu (37.552, 126.921) where there are several BBQ restaurants. We first got attracted as they were giving out free popcorns and Baby E grabbed them before we could say no. Turns out that they were having a promotion and we get one free serving of beef ribs and beer! So we went in.

We had 3 servings of this! Including the free one. Add one more beer and soju. And the grand total came up to 60,000 won. So worth it! We came out of the place really bloated!

By now it was night time and we found their little food alley.

By now we were too full! We shopped a little more and ended our day with a happy stomach and bags of loots.
