Travelogue : 5th Day , Jeju-do

10th October 2018, Wednesday



Last day at Seogwipo. I decided to go for a forest walk again. I need to have more fresh air from here. At least to heal my tired body. The last trip to Jeju-do, I don't get the chance to Cheongjiyeon Waterfall but I did visited Jeongbang waterfall which is nearby. So, I decided to visit this place in the morning. The place is only 5 minutes drive from the place I stay. There are many stalls at the entrance of this place. One of the stalls is selling famous Jeju-do Octopus bread. I was trying to eat this few nights ago at Olle Market, but the queue was super long, so I gave up.


Octopus Bread, Jeju-do

I decided to buy on for morning breakfast. Serious delicious. Cost me KRW3,000. This is like pancakes batter sprinkled with dried octopus flakes, a special Jeju grown barley and mozzarella cheese. I can eat many of this. But when I keep converting the price. Aihhhh!! I eat one enough le... for taste.



Cheonjiyeon Waterfall

I read the water at Cheongjiyeon Falls meaning 'sky connected with land' appears to fall from heavens. The view here really feels heavenly. This place is another Natural Monument in Jeju-do.  I really enjoy the lush green of the surrounding trees.


I just walked and enjoy the crowd of the Chinese tourist who happened to be there too. Yes! they are super loud and kind of disturb the peace too. They are very competitive in taking the best shot with the waterfall background. Haihhh!!!

I quickly move away from this place and wish for a peaceful forest walk. I stop by Saryeoni Forest Path. Just parked the car by the roadside and cross over the wide road opposite with row of tall trees.



Saryeoni Forest Path

This place really reminds me of the cedar forest which I visited up in Alishan, Taiwan. This place is a tranquil path through cedar forest. This trail is a cedar forest grown in between of Mulchat Oreum and Saryeoni Oreum. Not just cedar, I read they even have Japanese Oak, birch and Cypress trees along the 550-meter long trail. Really famous for a quiet walk and I met few brides and grooms to be, take a photo shoot here.



Mulyeongari Oreum

I unable to climb up to Hallasan Mountain but I end up to discover this beautiful Oreum call Mulyeongari-Oreum which located around Halla Mountain. This is one of the oreums that has a wetland on top of oreum. If you watch Korean movie 'A Werewolf Boy' star heartthrob Song Joong Ki, this place was used as a background scene. The wind here is quite strong and really chilly. Not many people here too. So, it really peaceful out here.


I tried to climb up the 800 stairs but I unable to finish it off. I climbed up halfway then stop at the nearby bench to eat prawn crackers which I bought for 1+1 at 7 Eleven the day before. Then while eating, I heard wild animal sounds. I hurried down immediately. huhuhuh...chicken out because I was the only one hiker here. So feel a bit scary cat! huhuhuh... But still..this is the best place I visited. Love the refreshing air and beautiful scenery here. This place is not touristy so this place is really special.




I just explore the nearby and enjoy the view surrounding this Oreum before continuing my journey to Sagumburi Crater.



Sagumburi Crater

Not my first-time visit to this place but really love to visit it for the second time. Check out my previous post here.


Sagumburi Crater is another Natural Monument worth to visit if you are in Jeju-do. This place is a flat crater and it looks like man-made circular stadium view from the top. In a windy day, I love to watch the flame grass dancing to the rhythm. Loving the view so much here. Just walk, breathe and enjoy the beautiful view. 




Seopjikoji Hill

It will be beautiful to visit this place during spring time because the famous Jeju yellow canola flowers are full bloom. During my visit only a flat grass and rocks view. Well this place still a perfect spot for chilling out while enjoying the view.


I saw many people queueing up to snap photo near the while lighthouse which I totally skip. Too far for me to walk over there. I just walked around and enjoy the sea breeze which not so pleasant at all because there is pony's dung everywhere here.

Is it the sea breeze or the pony's dung? I really feel super hungry out of sudden. The journey back to my favourite Ajumma will be too long to satisfy my hunger pang. I checked on google and found out the place I was not far from Seongsan Ilchulbong. I remember there are few restaurants nearby there. So decided to eat somewhere there.


Peanut Icecream and Barley Steamed Bread

I read somewhere if you are in Jeju-do, it is a must to taste Peanut IceCream and Barley Bread. I tried peanut ice cream here and in my opinion nothing special about this.  Cost me KRW3,000 for a cup. I won't repeat again.
Then spent about 15 minutes walking to find the famous steamed barley bread place near Seongsan Ilchulbong. I found the place after trying my best to match the Korean character from the image I 'google out'. I bought the green one which is from mugwort and the beige colour which made from barley. Both have red bean paste filling. Cost me KRW600 each bread. I love both but the mugwort one is my favourite. 

For those who want to taste this, no need to go far to Seongsan Ilchulbong, you can even get this at Maeil Olle Market, Seogwipo. Just walk around the market you will find this too.


I walk around the small town near Seongsan Ilchulbong and enjoy the view from a different perspective. 


Haemul Jeon and Vegetables Bibimbap


My dinner for that night isn't that tasty but enough to fill my stomach. Regret to get carried away at Sagumburi Crater which made me miss out my favourite Ajumma food on my last night at Seogwipo.

Different between Rebonding and Keratin Treatment

Frizzy Hair Solution Naturally, I born wavy and wild frizzy hair. I hate that frizzy hair style. It make me look untidy and less attractive. WTH! Don't throw up please!!!! The only solution to my knowledge all this while is rebonding hair treatment. I have been doing this almost every year. I am worried about getting my hair ironed every year. Gosh! I am not getting anymore younger so does my hair. How long this poor hair of mine can stand that heavy chemical treatment coated on and flat iron it with the heat straightening iron. Even my neck almost drop putting up with the long hours procedures. I was invited to try out Keratin Treatment at A Cut Above. I am glad to finally try this out. I love the end result very much and the process is simple than rebonding. Like I said earlier my desire result is to tame my untidy frizzy hair. Not really about straightening the hair. So which one to choose? Rebonding or Keratin? Hair Rebonding * Suitable for those who have ve

My Plantar Fasciitis getting bad after return down to KL from Genting short weekend getaway recently. I guess my backpack load too heavy and stress up my heel so much.

How to Buy the Right Bra ?

Warning! This post is all about 'boobies'. If you have an allergy to 'boobies', please do not read this post. Don't blame me for not warning you. Read at your own risk. 😝 I really love shopping. Who doesn't? My most favourite shopping items are clothing and beauty care. There is one thing will give me an eerie and heavy heart if you even give me free shopping money for this item. Bra! For such a small item of clothing, bras are the hardest task for me.  First of all, I have bad experience shop for my own bra a long time ago. My perception, the salesperson who man the bra section mostly aunties who just care about the commission. Unlucky me always met the sales person who will criticize my 'poor boobies'. I have experienced one salesperson scoop up my 'boobies' just to check on my size. WTH! Super rude! I was taken aback at that time. Immediately made a 'U-turn' and never return. I was so puzzled and confused at that time. Why sh
