whenever i’m back in seoul, it’s become our ritual to get together to catch up over a nice food and a drink. and this particular night we decided we were going for interstellar, dinner at a nice italian restaurant then to see the led rose festival at ddp.
plan numero uno: success!
we came out of the movie with our jaws down to our feet. the movie was brilliantly perplexed. in a good way.
plan numero dos: success!
we went to a restaurant called pané crema in daehangno (alley near kfc) which i never knew existed but glad we tried cos it was one of the most pleasant meals i had thus far.
this may look like your typical korean stew but no, it’s actually a spicy seafood risotto.. lol
this. was. the. bomb. diggity.
spicy cream pasta in a bread bowl. it had a nice balance with a burst of spiciness here and there.
plan numero tres: fail!
so our original plan was to go see this beautiful led rose festival that was happening in ddp in dongdaemun.
but guess what! they decided it was best not to open the led lights for the night (for safety reasons) due to mass crowd that gathered around to see the marching of pikachus earlier that day. i don’t know if i was more angry at the pikachus or ddp. so yes, you can google images of led rose festival ddp if you’d like to see how it looks with the lights on. beautiful i have to say!
so the small yet very heavy tripod i was carrying around the entire day was all for nada. and this was me desperately wanting to make it count.
so inside there were these shops or boots with creative/unique design items that were being sold and displayed.
and out of nowhere was this piano. and this girl walked to the piano, sat her boyfriend down next to her and started playing like freakin’ beethoven reborn! would’ve been so proud if i were him.
so that is a wrap!
despite the pikachus ruining our plan, it was a good, gooooood night overall. hope you guys had a lovely thanksgiving!
