I love Korea and i have made many wonderful friends here. They brought me to the best places, even waiving off my share off the bills, make sure that i am not taken advantage off when i went out shopping and told me what is good and what is not. I felt so welcomed here and it feels like a 4th home ( 1st – my Bishan home , 2nd – Agneselle office , 3rd – Mr Park’s home in Incheon ).
We were invited to one of Mr Park’s friend’s family owned restaurant for Korean BBQ Buffet. Yes you are right ! BUFFET with 15 different kinds of pork and beef , 20 over side dishes , 5 types of soup and 6 kinds of sauces etc. Only 24,000 for 2 pax after discount. Damn shiok and we ate for 3 hours. Look how fat the pork was and i was overloaded with BBQ mushrooms. I love it !
My favourite seasoning to eat with the meat , lettuce and kimchi – SALT + Black or White Pepper. Sometimes , i add a little bit of sesame oil with it.
As usual , we go on a good meal 1-2 days before my flight back. We had dinner at VIPS.
It is a popular South Korean Steakhouse chain that serves realllly succulent steaks. Definitely one of the best steaks i ever tasted. It is not pricey and you get to enjoy the salad bar for any steak ordered. Not just salad at the salad bar , you get to have free flow of prawns , porkribs , chicken , pizzas , waffles , bibimbap , Korean soup noodles , potato salad , salmon etc etc etc. Too many to name and let the pictures do the talking. I think there are more than 40 over dishes for you to choose. So if you are not a big eater , order one steak and the other person just go for the salad bar. Share the steak. Anyway the salad bar costs $20. So with just about $60 (depending the type of steak you order) , 2 pax get to enjoy free flow salad bar and a steak. Their steak is about 180g i think. Pretty huge. And most table share one steak.
The salad bar. I wont call it a salad bar actually , it is more like a buffet. Because just the salad bar alone can make you damnnn full and go on a food coma.
Kimchi , salad , potato salad , Korean chap chye , mushrooms etc.
Grilled prawn , BBQ pork ribs and teriyaki chicken fillets.
Butter corn , sweet spring onion fries , chicken pops , pizzas and waffles
3 types of pastas – Tomato , cream and aglio olio.
We ordered the black pepper steak. I love black pepper steaks. Grilled on hot stone. Side dish was mushroom dipped in cream cheese sauce . It is damn yummy. I love the sauce !
Doesn’t look good in the picture but trust me. It is damnnn yummy !
Love the soup base for Korean “Guk-Su” (Noodle soup).
I love the fries. it tastes damn sweet and has sprinkles of spring onions on it. So much more fragrant than truffle fries.
Made my own ice cream – Green Tea + Yogurt Ice cream with Sesame mochi , red bean and i added a pear at the side. You can choose Green Tea , Yogurt or Green Tea + Yogurt ice cream.
Awesome ! And i really enjoyed my dinner.
Managed to find the address for one branch in Seoul on internet.

Balsan Station (Seoul Subway Line 5), Exit 4.
Go straight (350m) until you see the VIPS on the left.
Well , it is very crowded so try to go abit earlier. We went about 6pm and it wasn’t that full but by 6.30pm , crowds start streaming in and full house. Able to sit capacity of 250pax. One of the food chains under CJ ONE.
I really can’t wait for my photoshoot next Monday ! Tolong..please don’t rain !
You will get to see remake of popular pieces requested by our customers !
This white top will be coming in 3 colors !
And Silva Lace Top will be coming in Dress version in 3 colours too ! You will love them because im already loving them and wearing them to events or dinner.
This white dress is coming up too ! But not in white. In darker colours ! Trying to get Mr Park to take OOTD in my grey piece as a dress but too cold to do so. My finger tips turned red and painful for the past 5 days because weather was really really cold and it just turned cold suddenly without any warning. I can’t feel my toes. My body was feeling ok and kept warm with my jacket but my legs were not. It was much better today because there was no wind. The piece i wore below was a little bit short because i folded the bottom up to make it look more like a top.
Anyway , i was on leggings and stockings spree because they were so cheap here. I got 기모 ”Gi-Mo” here at about $5. It is a kind of stockings with slight furrings inside. The same one i got from ParknShop in China. Hard to get these in SG. And stockings here are only $1.90 irregardless on how many deniers are they.
You can find them at those “auntie” shops that sells just leggings and basic knit wear or tops. These “auntie” looking shops actually sell things that are more practical for the weather than just for fashion. The sell fleece leggings too. I wear a layer of 기모 under a layer of cotton leggings. You can get thick cotton leggings from this kind of “auntie” looking shops or even road side at very cheap price. Leggings are more comfortable than pants because they are strechable and i can put on layers and layers without restricting my movements. Don’t bargain with those aunties. Some are very fierce.
I had a good chat with some taxi drivers and apparently they do not know SG and those who knew thought we are part of China…hmmmmmm…
