clomid price in mercury drug philippines delivery Gorgeous morning indeed! The weather had been amazing since I got here and the breakfast spread at Plaza Korea was really hearty too! A moment of quietness to eat while pondering life thoughts facing this breathtaking city view.

image

Plaza Korea’s egg station chef did about the most perfect omelette I had ever seen…not too overcooked, and even maintained the mozzarella cheezey effect inside. Tell me, have you ever seen such perfectly shaped and golden brown cooked omelette in hotel buffets… ever? When I had my omelette again the very next day, its shape was similar like the one served previously. Talk about consistency!

image

The gorgeous looking Tera Rosa Cafe is located in the central CBD area, at Gangwondo. I had been drinking the coffee from the Tera Rosa beans brewed in Cafe Olle, Sri Hartamas, and also purchased the beans before from Olle, all this while…and to finally be in the cafe itself, I was too psyched to see it with my own eyes.

Exciting gila!

image

A big salute to the Koreans, they surely do know how to decor with finesse and style. As I stepped in, I saw tons of coffee lovers chatting and sipping away on their cuppas, and they were surrounded by books on shelves and antique coffee brewing and grinding gadgets.

image

If this cafe existed in Klang Valley, I reckoned it would be a top hang out place, and the biggest bonus pointer of all… GOOD COFFEE served. Patrons place their order at the coffee brewing counter / cashier and for bread lovers who want their coffee served with some delicious bakes, the bread kitchen is several steps away from the coffee brewing area.

image

I sat by the giant Tera Rosa brick wall while observing the baristas brewing my cuppa. Having a counter as grand as this to brew my own cuppa, is truly a dream oh so sweet indeed!

 

image

The coffee culture in Seoul is really huge, and it’s quite nice to meet so many coffee lovers that you can relate with and share the joy of enjoying good cuppas together. However, for a Malaysian to be joining in the coffee scene in Seoul hurts your pocket real bad, as each cuppa on average cost about 4000 won/ MYR 12 -15, or more, depending on the beans and brewing method used.

3 cuppas, from Kenyan and Ethopian beans, with a mini kugelhopf and chocolate coconut cubes cost nearly RM 100. @_@

 

image

The iced coffee, wasn’t that bad, glides well down the throat, smooth, with a strong roasted aroma.

image

The long black hand filtered cuppas were fairly good too, but we did notice that the baristas did not measure the weight of the water prior pouring over the freshly ground beans, perhaps that made the taste, just a little slightly sour.

We came back again on the final day to purchase packs of beans instead. More economical to brew on my own with the self-created home formula. Haha.
image

Initially, I thought these were moist and dense dark chocolate cake cubes….

image

But I was gravely mistaken. They were coconut grates coated in chocolate and mashed together to form into cubes.

The texture and taste was somewhat similar to those colourful looking coconut cubes desserts you get from Indian restaurants, but of course this tasted better as the coconut flavouring was not too strong and the grates were quite fine.

image

The mini kugelhopf, looked delicious from its packaging, but sadly, when the fork dived in, the kugelhopf crumbled like cookie bits. Looked rather yummy, on a contrary it wasn’t.

Mr Rush at Tera Rosa cafe, CHECKED! Thrilled to be here, sipping a cuppa from the original store itself.

Mr Rush, next stop. Nomusairu! What say you? Rush, rush… and away!

Amazing cream cakes@Jiyugaoka Cafe, 지유가오카핫초메 Seoul

image

This was my second time taking Korean Air and with a minimal increase in price compared to MH, you get way better service, better food, and better comfort. However, some Korean friends of mine say they do treat foreigners better than locals. Maybe it works the same for MH too…

The food in this place was more fulfilling and tasty than the many meals I had on MH. (Reminiscing the curry chicken rice).

image

The weather at this period was amazing, very cool with nice breeze and clear skies. This airport is planned as such to give you comfort throughout your time here. I took the bus to the hotel at an easy purchase over the bus ticket counter, per ticket 16000 won or about RM50+, and all you need to do is stand by this sign board.

And the great thing about it, PUNCTUALITY. They also stationed a local guard/officer at this area who helps any tourist

This was one of the most comfortable and convenient travels ever from an airport to the hotel. The bus driver greeted me with smiles and bowed, then helped me put my luggage into the storage compartment. There were airline magazines at every seat also and the leather seats were spacious and comfortable. Not only that, the driver then came to remind each of us to buckle up and it only took me 60minutes to reach the the doorstep of my hotel to be greeted immediately by the bell boy.

These bus services are also offered to non – hotel locations within Seoul city. And the buses arrive ON TIME. How amazing is this!

Managed to catch a moment of cool breeze with a gorgeous view from the rooftop of Songuen Art Centre, located in one of the most pricey premium locations in Seoul. Amazing view, and beautiful decor!

image

While strolling around this area, we stumbled upon this cute cafe, filled with toys, books and cute ornaments and decided to just pop in and get its cream cakes a try.

image

Apparently, Jiyugaoka has several outlets made famous from Japan itself. The pastry chef is known for his delicious cream cakes and here was a hall of fame of photos of him and his family and friends, captured happy moments.

image

The cakes looked soooo delicious! But they are not cheap..especially for us Malaysians sigh. Each slice cost a minimum 8000won / MYR 25-30.

image

Mr Rush joined in the cream cake craze! Since each slice came with a hefty price, we settled with just one slice, from Haru Cake, recommended by the staff here. It appeared quite normal looking actually.

image

But the moment I scooped in the first mouthful, I was blown away. The cream was so light and fluffy and the cake layers were so moist, dense but not over hardened, chocolatey and it was not greasy too. Holy canoly…it was one AMAZING slice of cake. Yum factor 200%. Worth every single MYR penny for finding this golden chance to visit this cafe.

image

When you are done eating your cake, even the fork reminds you of each happy moment bursting forth upon each mouthful.

Worthy experience and definitely looking forward to come back here again if I have a chance!

Now…for more foodieventures ahead!!!
