Korea 2013 – Part 3

So after that night with a shot of soju, we fell into bed without washing up. Somehow, that thought lingered in my mind throughout the night, and I woke up really early the next day to shower. Haha, I felt really gross that night but just couldn’t gather energy to pull myself out of bed and clean up. ANYWAY, we were leaving Jeju on Day 3 PM and decided to have a relaxing day without having any plans in mind. So we just walked around and chanced upon our breakfast place. But frankly, I think PB is just so-so. I only enjoy their bread loaves when I visit Mum in Shanghai because it’s a brand I could trust (不会吃死人吧?)

Paris Baguette is everywhere! Like our MacDonalds, or NTUC.

After breakfast, we were bored and decided to call for a taxi to bring us to a lava tunnel for some sightseeing. I think we’ve been on F&E holiday for too long and without proper planning.

As expected, it was pitch dark inside, save for a few ‘garden lamps’. I was half afraid of bats and stuff like that.

I’ve never been a huge fan of geography and so the following explanations just made me zzzz.

The tour was self-guided and it was very deserted the day we went as it was a weekday. We were the only visitors at certain parts of the tunnel and I was thinking all sorts of scary stuff in my mind “what if the tunnel gives way?” “what if the lava flows again?” etc. Luckily, it was all over within an hour since you can’t really take good pictures inside. We quickly went back to the hotel, packed our stuff and checked out, leaving our luggages at the front office while we walked out to have lunch.

We managed to find our way to an E-mart and spent an hour or two there just browsing the snacks, instant noodles and homeware section. Haha. We’re such boring people. But we had one of our best meals at the food court there. The tofu stew was uber flavourful and good on a chilly day.

Just before we left Jeju, Mr Goh being the adventurous eater, just had to try this Jeju delicacy. Guess what is this?

Don't know why the UK is getting worked up about this... People in Jeju love it!
