Hozenji Yokocho and Hozenji Temple

Both Hozenji Yokocho and Temple in Osaka appeared on my mind after reading a site dedicated for travelling spots all over Japan.  Hozenji Temple is part of Hozenji Yokocho which is located only few minutes away from Dotonbori Area, but definitely gives different vibe with that one of most popular shopping and entertainment districts in Osaka. I remember that day, my friends and I just … Continue reading Hozenji Yokocho and Hozenji Temple

Hi Jeonju!

On May 16, 2006, I bid (temporary) goodbye to Irina and also Seoul, and then headed for Jeonju. My strongest reason for visiting that capital city of North Jeolla Province was no others than its food. It was fascinating enough to know that Jeonju was chosen as a Creative Cities for Gastronomy. I expected more experience of Korean food later, especially bibimbap (비빔밥). Jeonju bibimbap … Continue reading Hi Jeonju!

Tokyo Tower and My Incompleteness

Let’s go to Tokyo Tower before continuing my (seems unfinished) stories of South Korea. You might be aware that I am this typical person who loves the free or cheap rides at the same amount how I enjoy seeing the icons or landmarks of a city. If I miss that while visiting a country, especially if it’s easily accessed, I would feel slightly troubled, one … Continue reading Tokyo Tower and My Incompleteness

Memory of Seoul on May 15, 2016

… 11 Pictures, 849 words, under 5 minutes to read. 😀 The rain was persistent, so was my loneliness, and my willingness to spend one last day in Seoul nicely. Moreover, I had dinner appointment with my super nice host, Irina. I didn’t want to miss it. I briskly walked with all of those reasons to the nearest station from where I stood that time. … Continue reading Memory of Seoul on May 15, 2016

Selalu ada rasa yang spesial buat Bandung bagiku. Kemanapun aku melangkah, selalu saja ada yang menarikku untuk … Continue reading Dan Bandung Bagiku…

Thought on the Road; One Nice Manner

Speaking of craving samgyeopsal on my previous post triggers the appearance of another topic. It’s about that one nice manner that gained my attention during trip to South Korea every time I dined with my Korean friends. Okay, this blog direction is slowly becoming ‘Yuna’s 12 Days South Korean Random Review’. 😀 I am a person without a complex table manner or etiquette, so that … Continue reading Thought on the Road; One Nice Manner

Craving Samgyeopsal

Oh, I am craving samgyeopsal (삼겹살) now. It seems to me, being in a group of people who like Korean food brings both good and bad effects. The good thing is the whole information about food that I have received, including those best deals. In other hand, it also becomes the bad effects; my entire day is always full of seducing food which makes me craving … Continue reading Craving Samgyeopsal
