Korea Day 6 (Trick Eye Museum & N Seoul Tower)

That morning I set off a little earlier to Hongdae than banana to look for my umbrella. After that I needed to look for a Wi-Fi hotspot to contact her, hence I decided to try my luck at Dunkin' Donuts.

After meeting banana we walked into this random shop selling Budae Jjigae(army stew consisting of ramen, fish cakes, topokki, meat and seafood). It was surprisingly quite yummy and good for two person at a reasonable price.

  After lunch we visited Trick Eye Museum which was nearby. There was an artist drawing human faces in the form of cartoon at the entrance. See the resemblance? So talented!!

The Scream, banana version.
Entrance ticket is 15,000Won for adults and you can enter both Trick Eye Museum and Ice Museum.
We alighted at Hongik University Station Exit 9, and walked a distance before reaching Trick Ice Museum, which is in between TONYMOLY and Holika Holika.  
I'm part of the painting!!
Picnic time.
I love the fairytale setting!
 The witch told me to pay ransom 1000 dollars to save banana.
 I happily took her place instead lolol.
Hangover. Big drunkard  酒鬼 heehee!
Someone plucked a flower for me!

This is a place I've dreamt of going all my life. I really pray hard I can visit this place by next year.

Café selling desserts, sandwiches and toasts.
As if it wasn't cold enough after coming out from the Ice Museum plus it was raining heavily outside, we decided to have...
patbingsu best in korea
TADAH! Patbingsu!! We had the traditional flavour with grounded peanuts and mocha. Very very delicious I wonder if I can ever find this in Singapore! This was a random café near Trick Eye Museum which was on the second storey. We knew they were selling patbingsu because they had this very big poster of the dessert on the building.

 Then we took the subway to Myeongdong Station to visit N Seoul Tower.
We walked towards Pacific Hotel and from there we asked a local who was kind enough to walk a distance with us and guided us up a pathway. The cable car boarding area is not at all near to Myeongdong Station so be prepared to walk! Or else you can take a bus up as well. The cable car ticket cost us 8,500Won each. We got the return ticket since it was more worth it than a one way ticket which easily cost 6,000Won already.

 While banana went up to the top of the tower for a look, I was sitting downstairs at some café eating a raisin danish and drinking English breakfast tea with Minho Oppa heehee!
restaurant near n seoul tower
Settled for a late night dinner at a random restaurant nearby before going back to our hostel. We were famished by then and luckily this restaurant was still opened. I took a quick photo using my phone and gobbled up the delicious grilled pork belly and beef stew! :D
