2014韓國自助korea trip • day 4. isaac吐司與梨花壁畫村 // isaac toast & ihwa mural village (文末送小禮物gift giveaway)


韓國遊記總算寫一半了....
我老是開玩笑說  該不會到下一次去韓國玩都還沒寫完吧!?  哈哈
為了不讓它發生, 我會努力的 (衝~!!)  

 

抵達韓國的第四天, 行程依舊緊湊,
早上我們先去住宿附近的isaac買了傳說中去韓國必吃的早餐..  


i'm finally half way through the 2014 korea trip series... i always joke with mr. liao that i probably won't finish this series even until my 2nd korea trip! lol. to avoid it from happening, i'll do my best to write! and edit photos! and write! and edit more photos! and write! and write!... hahaha

the 4th day after we arrived korea, schedule was packed as usual. we went to isaac toast in the morning which is just around the corner from our hotel. i heard that isaac is one of the must-go breakfast place in korea! we just had to pay a visit~

果然是觀光客大愛, 居然還要排隊!  
而且排隊的人又是
一半以上都在講中文...lol  
 

我們去的那間是鍾路店, 做吐司的阿姨應該是華僑, 會講中文~  
她整個忙得暈頭轉向, 連錢都沒時間收!  所以是客人自己放錢到籃子裡..(找錢也是)
  很妙吧~  
 

事隔有點久, 我已經忘記我們點什麼口味了哈哈, 但我記得是很好吃的啦!  
他們吐司是抹過奶油才在烤盤上煎
到微焦, 料也給的很大方!
吐司夾著很豐富
的玉米蛋, 起司, 肉片, 生菜, 酸黃瓜 和醬料~  
結合在一起還是我能夠一口咬下的厚度, 香香甜甜!  
like~ :D

 

在地鐵站吃完早餐之後  就搭車前往惠化站,
目的地是梨花壁畫村!

indeed isaac is very popular among the asian tourist. there was even a line in front of the shop! and more than half of the people standing in line were chinese....lol. 

the store we went was the jongno location, the owner was a lady who can speak chinese, so it's a plus~ she was way too busy with orders that she didn't even have time to be the cashier! so what we did was put money to those baskets in front of the grill by ourselves. (get changes too). that was fun, it's like a honesty test. lol

it's been a long time that i don't quite remember what flavor did we order...but i can tell you, it was gooood! she spread butter on the toast & grilled it to golden brown. then stacked all the yummy ingredients on - eggs with corn, patty, cheese, lettuce, pickle, and special dressings~ it was so flavorful & juicy! perfect for such cold weather!  

we finished our lovely breakfast inside the metro station, then took off to hyehwa, which leads to our first destination of the day - ihwa mural village.

出了地鐵站, 映入眼簾的又是一棵棵橘紅相間的樹,  
我真的很愛秋天首爾的街景.. just can't get enough of it.


然後我們試著照地圖往駱山公園走, 但還是小小迷路了一下Orz  
(應該是這七天裡唯一一次迷路)  

但迷路也是旅行中不可或缺的浪漫

因為這樣讓我遇見了兩隻可愛的韓國貓~~   喵嗚~~~  
本人號稱貓咪雷達可不是假的, 就算在國外也依然吸引貓貓來黏我呀  
阿哈哈哈   <--神經病

saw those beautiful trees with red/yellow leaves right after we got out of the metro station, i really love the fall street scene in seoul... just can't get enough of it. 

then we followed our map, trying to get to naksan park.. but still, we kinda got lost (oops). however, i believe getting lost is a crucially romantic part in a getaway trip. don't you think? that's why i get to met these two little cuties along the way! what a pleasant surprise! 

i'm not kidding when i say i am a human cat-radar. even i was in another country, i can still find those hidden street cats, and they still loves me!! they just ran to me and snuggled when they saw me came near! ahahahaha (pardon me, i'm a crazy cat lady).

應該是同一窩吧? 長超像他們!  是我愛的橘貓 (眼成愛心狀)  
最後一張還給我一樣姿勢!!! 會不會太可愛啊天!!

 


接著已經開始在路邊看到一些壁畫了, 代表我們沒有走錯路ToT
還看到一群學生正準備開始作畫


其實梨花壁畫村的由來是: 
2009年首爾文化觀光部所發起的一個改善生活環境工程,
為的是能讓月亮村成為吸引更多居民&遊客的藝術小村!

這個工程和60幾位 從老到少的居民藝術家合作,
在村莊裡的各個角落畫上壁畫與裝飾藝術, 和街頭融為一體~

/月亮村是指位於小山丘上, 地形坡度大, 階梯很多的村子
而因為地勢高, 彷彿伸手就可碰到月亮一樣/

 

這裡的畫也常常在更新, 所以每次去都可能會看到一些不同的作品唷!

they are probably sibling? i love orange tiger cats! just pure adorable. and they even had the same pose in that last picture! omg...cuteness overload!!

we kept on walking after finally saying goodbye to those 2 cuties... and started to see some murals along the street. (means we were on the right track lol). and we saw a bunch of students getting ready to paint on the wall. 

so the origin of those murals & sculptures was actually "naksan project", an urban environment improvement project by the seoul tourism department, so the moon village* get to attract more residents & tourists. about 60 some residential artists joined this project and painted/decorated their village with many mural paintings and other artworks. that's how ihwa village became such a cute and artsy area!

*a moon village usually builds on small hills, cover with many long & steep stairs. the ground level is more high up and closer to the moon. that's how the name originated. 

there are new paintings been created constantly, also the artists will update some older/faded art with new elements. so you might encounter different artworks every time you visit! 

碰到另外一隻貓貓 -w-

bumped into another cute cat -w-

前往壁畫村的途中會經過駱山公園外圍, 那裡有許多裝置藝術,
如果不趕時間也可以停下來好好欣賞~

個人很喜歡那鐵絲編成的魚, 還從另外一頭游過來, 太可愛了!

 

然後偷偷拍了某戶人家的頂樓花園, 也太日系太有味道吧!  

我非常喜歡長長細細的樓梯, 以及小巷弄,
也許看起來髒髒舊舊的, 但我就是覺得很美~  

we passed by naksan park on the way to ihwa village. and there were some installation arts along the outside border of the park. if you are not in a rush, it's nice to stop and take a good look at them. personally i loved the wire fishes, they were swimming towards us! so cute!

i took a photo of someone's rooftop garden, it was so japanese style i just had to captured it. 

and i'm just fond of those narrow long stairs & tiny alleys. they might look dirty and ghetto, but i found them so beautiful, full of their own distinct cultural aesthetic. 

不知道是什麼瓜.. 看起來很好吃..........

anyone know what kind of melon is this? looks so yummy......

我們去的那天是禮拜六, 那裡整個遊客爆炸!  
不誇張, 真的是人一群一群的湧進... 

千萬記得放低音量, 畢竟壁畫村是有居民居住的~  尤其是一大早  

we went on a saturday morning (almost noon), and the village was packed with tourists! not exaggerate, people were just flushing in like a flood... don't forget to keep the volume down coz there're residents inside the houses! show some respect : )

長長階梯被佈置的這麼可愛, 居民每天行走的時候應該會比較開心/覺得沒那麼辛苦吧! 

the long stairways were decorated with pieces of colorful tile, it's so cute that i think the residents will be more joyful when they have to walk through them everyday!  

亞洲人是極愛塗鴉(aka亂寫亂畫Orz)的一種族群,
而韓國更是將塗鴉文化發揚到一個極致...

好像走到任何一個觀光景點都會發現一堆留言塗鴉XXX愛XXX....lol

asian is such a race that loves graffiti (aka doodling on every possible surface as you wish lol), and korea is by far the country i know of that loves graffiti to the max... i ran into tons of sketching/drawing/love message in every tourist attraction spot! lol 

用這間貼滿了字的理髮廳當結尾會不會有點random?  哈哈哈  
但我是認真覺得很酷才拍的 :D  

總之梨花壁畫村是個很可愛小清新的地方, 我們那天只逛了一半吧
喜歡街頭藝術的人可以來晃晃, 但記得越早來越好 才不會碰到人潮!  

韓國有許多壁畫村, 以後有機會再慢慢挖掘~  但梨花應該是目前最有名的一個!       

 

然後我差點又忘了小禮物這回事哈哈 (記性真的很糟糕)  
是的, 我從韓國帶回來的小禮物還沒發完哪... (還好是不會過期的東西)

it's kind of random to use this funky image of a hair salon as an end to this post haha. but i thought it's really cool! (all those characters and colors...)
