Strong Woman Do Bong Soon Shooting Location: Dobong Walnut Bakery

Do Bong Walnut Bakery

        After watching Goblin for about 10 times, there were 2 other Korean dramas that I got addicted to. Weightlifting Fairy Kim Bok Joo (my most favorite, saving that for last!) and JTBC's Strong Woman Do Bong Soon. I thought it was funny that both dramas depicted strong female leads (literally), but trust me, the story is very different. But both are very charming in their own ways!

        So anyway one of my to-visit lists was the Dobong Walnut Bakery from Strong Woman Do Bong Soon... if I had time, and if I could find it. Luckily, because of all the South Korean Travel blogs from hard-core K-Drama fans, we were able to easily find it!

Goblin Shooting Location: BBQ Premium Cafe

        While we were planning our trip to Seoul, we (okay fine....I,) originally wanted to go on KKDay's Goblin tour to visit all the memorable shooting sites of everyone's favorite Gong Yoo K-Drama, Goblin, The Lonely and Great God. But, as the date went closer, I thought about it and decided not to go anymore because some of the locations are pretty far, and among Richie, my 6-year-old daughter Rain, and I, I will be the only one who will appreciate visiting a far location to visit a beach dock, or visiting a wall or an overpass. So it was my choice to cancel, although with a heavy heart.

        So for the first 2 days, we traveled to Nami Island and Lotte World Adventure (Separate posts soon!). And both nights, on the way back, back to our AirBnB in Jongno area,  we would always pass by this 3-floor BBQ Premium Cafe place. Each time we would pass it, it was always night time. And we're usually too tired to really look at it, and because of the -17 degree temperature, coupled with a 6 year old always asking to be carried, we were always in a hurry to get home.

        Until I think it was the 3rd night when my husband said, "We should try this chicken place tomorrow". So then I looked at the place, and only then noticed that there was a tarpaulin standee outside of Goblin. With photos from some scenes in the drama.

Oh. my. goodness....

        I can't believe we have been passing by it this whole time! It's Sunny's Olive Chicken and beer restaurant! Where they shot a number of scenes in the drama! It was like winning an easter egg hunt without trying!

        Because it was so cold outside, I didn't (and forgot) to take a photo of the facade. But as soon as you enter, the Grim Reaper's floating hat is there to greet you!



Oh my goooosh! Confirmed!!! Lee Dong Wok was here!!!

AMPALAYA PLUS vs. diabetes

        I don’t mean to start a blog post with a negative tone but diabetes is in our family. And the sad fact is that it seems like all families I know has a relative that has diabetes. I don’t know if it’s because of the food we eat these days or what. But it’s there, and it sucks. I hate it that 2 of my relatives have it, and I’m worried that I might be prone to it too.

        Thankfully though there’s something my relative can take to help him manage his blood sugar levels. Plus, it’s good to know as well that this is not only for diabetic people, but for prediabetics as well.  This wonder capsule is called Ampalaya Plus.

Air Asia in Korea: My First Trip To Seoul!


Oh boy... Where do I even begin?

        Okay so a few years back, I got fond of watching a few Asian drama series. Starting with Taiwan's Meteor Garden (Jerry Yan is my boyfriend but he's not aware so don't tell him). And then moved on to South Korea's Princess Hours, Full House, and Coffee Prince. Which I all loved! After that, the next ones I watched did not really keep me interested enough to look for more dramas.

Until Goblin happened.

        After that, something inside me snapped. All of a sudden I got so interested not just in K-dramas but South Korea as a whole. This is when I started trying Korean skincare. And after discovering that Korean skincare worked well with my skin, the more I fell in love with Korea. Shallow? Maybe. But not when you finally found products that improve your skin! Skincare is life!

        And after trying their skin care, I also suddenly had the urge to learn Korean, and also learn how to read and write Hangul. I'm sure all K Drama addicts had the same urge to learn the language as me. I signed up for online Korean language modules and also watched YouTube videos.

        After Goblin, I also fell in love with Weightlifting Fairy Kim Bok Joo, and Strong Woman Do Bong Soon. These are my 3 top favorites! So when the leading actors for Weightlifting Fairy and Strong Woman held their fan meet here in the Philippines, I grabbed the opportunity to see them in person <3 (And even got to high top with one of them <3 )

        All in all, I just started getting obsessed with Korean stuff. From food to skin care to dramas to music (specifically Drama soundtracks). But did I ever consider flying to South Korea?

My answer is a resounding HELL YES!

        And this is what this post is all about! My first trip to Seoul! I didn't think I would get to go soon so I was so ecstatic when my husband told me that it was finally pushing through!

        We flew to Incheon South Korea via Air Asia. We checked in smoothly, and all staff was very friendly and helpful!
