Korea Day 5 (Myeongdong)

We decided to shop for cosmetics and skincare products at Myeongdong after shopping for clothes the previous day, just in case we ran out of money. Cosmetics and skincare products are a lot cheaper than what you can find in Singapore but they still drained the bulk of our money away haha! 
To get to Myeongdong, just alight at Myeong-Dong Station (Line#4), Exit 6.

We decided to try the famous porridge chain shop, Bonjuk.
It wasn't difficult to locate the shop as there were many student-volunteers in red costumes standing along the streets who were most willing to help tourists navigate their ways. They were fluent in English and they had maps drawn out for us as well!

The fruits were nicely cut up and stored in cups so you just have to point to any one of them and they will blend it for you!

Basically they use a machine to pump the ice cream into the curly cones or candy canes cones. You can choose to have a mix of flavours as well! We tried one and its really damn shiok for a warm day.

The Tornado Potato!!
We often see people eating this street snack on TVs. Now we got to try it and it's simply delicious and very addictive!! But we had a hard time eating those at the bottom of the stick without having potato touching our faces and powder all over our mouths.
