Itaewon : Sam Ryan’s

Itaewon is the foreign area in Seoul. You have to take the Brown Line (No.6). Its the centre of foreigners residing in Korea because the area is filled with pubs, bars, cafes of all countries. Personally I don’t really like this place. I’ve been here once back in 2008 in the afternoon and the vibe is really unwelcoming. People who are sick of looking at Asians may have a good time in the area but for those who needs to feel safe (or who is paranoid like me) needs to stay away from the place.

I don’t recommend it to those who seeks for a piece of mind 🙂

Pale face. Really tiring because I have been going out every single day. Cannot take this kind of stress. All tanned from the shining sun! This picture is from the early phase of the trip so I still look a little fair.

Dawn who is taking the Korean language in Yonsei University spared time to come accompany me during my whole stay.

In the subway : Love the tracks here. Sufficient and swift.

Most of the girls here are clad in heels. Only 10% will be in flats.

Us walking towards the restaurant

I tried looking for a Malaysian restaurant once (when I was still studying in Seoul) but couldn’t find anything that came close to home except for the Nescafe cafe (that I have never seen back in KL). You know, it feels really funny to see something local in a foreign country. They have so many Rotiboy outlets here in Seoul, its like the amount of Dunkin Donuts in KL! Everytime I see it I feel very patriotic pfft.

You know the fragile motors we have in KL? Here in Seoul its really fascinating because most of their bikes are huge and steady looking! This bike is a little extreme on the deco but the general ones are nothing much less!

She has been regularly going to the place for dinner every Tuesday since a few months back and now that I’m here she insisted on taking me there.

    Hey, was checking out your awesome Seoul itinerary and found out that there was a typo “only RM 7000 (RM 24) on Tuesdays”.

    Hi, would like to ask how much for the drink? To get the special price for ribs. Can it share? Thanks

  5. admin says:

    Yes, as far as I can remember you can share. But I really don’t remember anymore.
    You can try asking, she has been there recently and might know the updated price better than I do.
    Great site too!
