#JuliesHersheys

Hi.

Recently I was invited to a media launch by Julie's where they're gonna be sharing about their up and coming new product. In collaboration with Hershey's, Julie's has come up with a new product line called Julie's Hershey's.

The event was held at Spinelli located at Habourfront Tower 1. As it was near the Christmas season, the people from Julie's made the effort to decorate the place itself. They even made a Christmas Tree out of the Julie's Hershey's boxes. Hahah!

As you guys may have seen it in some of the major supermarkets like Fairprice, Cold Storage or even GIANT hypermart. Julie's Hershey's cookies are available in 6 flavors, Chocolate Chip Hazelnut, Chocolate Chip, Chocolate Fudge Vanilla, Chocolate Chip Oat, Chocolate Fudge, and Chocolate Waffles. I've already eaten the Hazelnut, Oat, Chocolate Fudge and Chocolate Waffles flavors already and honestly speaking, I LIKED ALL OF THEM! Hahaha! ♥

I've given some to my friends to try it and all of them say that it's really nice! Some even asked me where can they get these. ^.^

But I'm not too sure about the flavors that are available now (currently) in the market, but I was told that the Chocolate Fudge Vanilla will only be in the market next year.

Mr Martin, the director of Perfect Food Manufacturing was also there at the event despite his busy schedule. he wanted to be at the event to tell us about how Julie's and Hershey's came to an agreement on the partnership.

The people from Julie's are also pretty nice, they gave each of us a bag Julie's Hershey's goodies during the event and some of us even got something extra. Hahah!

There was also a instagram contest held during the event. The person who has the most adorable, cute and happiest smile will walk away with a prize. And to my surprise, I was one of the winner for the contest.

We end of the event with phototaking session. Took a group photo with the decorations that they had and also with Miriam and Benny, the 2 Julie's friends that I've made during my Malacca trip back in August. ♥

Korea Travelogue; Day 6

I'm finally writing the last day of my Korea Travelogue, after 6 months that is... LOL!

So anyways, I was scrolling through instagram and I saw so many people posting pictures of their Korea Trip! SUPER ENVIOUS CAN!!! Somemore its snowing in Korea now, I'm so dying to be right there now!!!

Okay, I digress a little bit, lets focus the main point of this post. The itinerary on Day 6 is actually to keep our travel area nearby cuz its  our last day, and we had to get to the airport by 8pm++. So we actually stayed around Myeong Dong area for the whole time. Explored the Namsan Seoul Tower, and we did our last minute shopping at Myeong Dong area.

We got our usual Isaac Toast for breakfast and my Banana Milk! (I MISS MY ISAAC TOAST T.T) before heading up to the Namsan Seoul Tower. As this was my virgin trip to Korea, Andy suggested taking me to tour around the tower as it is a iconic tourists attraction in Seoul Korea. 

We climbed up the damn slope which is probably slightly steeper than 45 degree? I was panting my life away when I was climbing the slope. LOL!

Finally, we reached the place where the cable car. It takes passengers all the way up to the place where the tower is located without having to climb any more stairs.

The cable car tickets return trip costs 8500 Won per person, so its around $10.60?++

We reached the top of the hill and I was floored by the amazing view. The locks, the place and URGHHHH! It's just so amazing!!!!

So as I was touring around, I separated myself from Andy, cuz I want to have my own moment there. I was immersing myself wholeheartedly into the atmosphere. Like I was in some K-Drama. LOLOLOL!!!

I'm really amazed at just how some people will find ANY ways they could to place their locks. Hahaha! Some people even lock their mobile phone cases together. Kinda cute and creative IMO.

And so, since its my first time at Korea, and I doubt I'll be there anytime soon again, I thought why not I get myself a padlock to lock it over there as well?! HAHAHA!

A P6131869_副本

After walking around and finding the perfect spot, I finally settle on the place where I wanna place my lock at. Tadahh! At the lamppost. And after you're done locking your padlock, you just throw your keys into this little red metal thingy. LOL!

Their benches are designed in a V shape so that you both parties will slide to the middle and eventually sit side by side each other. Here's to the #ForeverAlone me.

While I was taking a selfie, look who I caught camwhoring behind me! LOL THAT BITCH! 
Yes Angie, I just called your idol a bitch. Hahahaah!

Before we left the Seoul Tower for Myeong Dong, we took a mandatory shot with the tower. TADAHH! ♥

We ended off our tour at Namsan Seoul Tower and took the cable car back to ground floor. Took a photo of the crowd before embarking on our final journey/walk at Myeong Dong.

A P6131906_副本

Actually, the remaining photos you see will just be food cuz we are gluttons like that! Hahah! But really, what is there to talk about when it comes to shopping??? Hahaha!

After we're done shopping, we had our dinner at some local restaurant. Army Stew again!!! Couldn't get enough of Army Stew cuz its so dirt cheap and nice in Korea! TMD Singapore sells so expensive!!! Daylight Robbery lor!!!

After our dinner we carried on with a bit more of shopping and then we went back to our hostel to collect our luggages (and also to pack our barangbarangs into the luggage la).

We bid goodbye to our room, our hosts and the hostel before we leave to catch the bus to Incheon International Airport.

Do bear in mind that you have to keep 10,000 won with yourself because you NEED IT for the transport fare back to the airport.

Dancing Crab

A PB234814_副本

A few weeks back, I went out for a food hunt and also a belated birthday celebration for one of my friend. Somehow I managed overcome my fear of eating crab.

My friends all know that I'm allergic to food that comes from the sea. And if I were to consume any of it, eg: prawns, squid, clams etc, my whole throat will become itchy and my mouth will start swelling.

The restaurant itself is pretty big IMO, decided to bring my friends to this place to give it a try after reading Andy's blog entry on his visit to dancing crab. Being a bit "kiasu" I made reservation the day before just to avoid disappointment. LOLOLOL!!!

At Dancing Crab, the way to consume the food is slightly different as compared to other crab restaurants. Over here, you eat the food with your bare hands. No plate or utensils given. To some, it might be a turn off but for people like me and one of my friend, we love the idea of using our hands to it and everything is just messy and on the table for you to eat. Hahah!

We ordered a combo 1 that consists of a crab, 300g of prawns, 250g of clams, some potatoes and sausages which costs around $80++?? and we also ordered some other finger food as well. Though, I feel that their menu is quite limited.

When ordering the combo, you can choose which sauce you want. One of our friend came here before and she tried the signature sauce and she told us it was VERY spicy. So ended up we ordered the Zesty Garlic Butter??? Or was it the Herb Butter??? I can't really remember though. :((

#SELFIE before getting all dirty and messy

After the long wait, the food finally arrived at our table. We ordered Fried Mushrooms, Crab Cake, 1 Combo 1, and Cajun Fries. I think its just nice for 4 people. If there were more people around, I think you will need to order 1 more combo.
