Getting Lost in Everland

It feels like a good time to be a kid again! During our trip to Korea last May, we went to one of the newest tourist spots. A land of enchantment and dreams… Everland! We took the bus to get there. It’s quite far from the urban city, around an hour ride’s worth. Upon arriving, the first thing I noticed are the tall spires of the entrance palaces. You can also see the famous T-Express in the background. Are you adventurous enough to go ride it?
Welcome to Everland!

A magnificent adventure awaits! :D

Spires! Those spires!

Me and my excited self! :D

We arrived at Everland quite early. Apparently, it opens at around 11 AM. Most of the attractions were still closed except for the Panda World in Zootopia. So we visited it first before lunch. The pandas were so cute! Even in captivity, I could see that they were in a good hospitable environment. They looked healthy and happy. And it’s my first time to see a real panda! Especially a red one! :D


Cute Panda! :)

A Red Panda on a tree. Cutieee!


There are also other animals, aside from the Pandas
After the Pandas, it was time for lunch. Wheeee~ We went looking for a restaurant. There were lots of cuisines available there. And we chose Italian! Time for some yummy pizza! :D
The food in Venezia Pizza was pricey but delicious. The thin crusted pizza is packed with flavor and the cheese and herbs stood out. 5/5 would definitely recommend! :D

We ate yummy cheesy pizza for lunch.

After lunch, we went back to the zoo. My mother wanted to see a tiger and truth be told, I wanted to see one, too. So we headed for the safari to see them.

A mighty tiger! It went right past me. :O

The cage that they were in is full of trees, as well.

We further explored the safari and ended up in riding one of Everland’s main attractions, the jeep ride called The Safari Adventure. It was a looooong wait getting there, though. Like, almost 2 hours on queue. Woah! But it was worth it at the end. I enjoyed the ride as I saw a lot of animals out and about. It was my first time seeing Tigers, Lions, Zebras, Cheetas, and more in real life! They even let us go near the giraffes! 


On to a Safari Adventure! :D

One of the first animals we saw is this bird.

Woah!

... and Elephants! :D

Zebras! 


This was the closest I got to a giraffe!


Cute pink flamingos

Oooh~ Rhinos!

And Cheetas! :D
Next stop were the gardens. It’s a wonderful world of flowers out there! And the fountains and castles give it a fairy tale vibe. The Rose Garden is my favorite Instagram spot in Everland. It featured different roses from all over the world. All of them were so elegant, beautiful and vibrant. 

The place resembles a superb ancient Greek garden.

I just couldn't help but take a pic with all these lovely plants.


We further explored the park and basked in its beauty!


It's like all castles in there!
And this one is like a little Holland village...

A pretty windmill-like building is perfect for more IG-worthy shots.

This gothic structure houses a souvenir shop.
And all the while we were going around Everland, we always stopped by for a food or drink. And everything in there is just so delicious! My favorite is the buttery caramel popcorn which could be found at kiosks all over the place! :D
Ice cream to keep the heat away!

These churros are the longest I've seen. We shared it with my sisters.

This popcorn is my favorite of all. We ate it all in a few minutes. So sweet! :D

A theme park is not complete without cotton candy! 
Of course, what better way to remember the experience by buying some souvenirs.


Everland ref magnets
Everland cute plushies!

Oooh~ My favorite one of all -Panda plushies which remind me of Aggretsuko.

Everland is such a huge place! We weren’t able to explore it all in one day! If ever you would come to visit, I suggest getting the late bus ride back to Seoul, or a two-day trip for it. The queues are so long that most of your time will be spent there. My family and I weren’t able to explore all the attractions. I wanted to ride the Ferris Wheel and all the others. But uhm? T-Express? I’m not yet courageous enough for that but who knows. I might try something out of the box next time. And yep, you read it right! There will be a next time, most definitely!

The 2019 Starbucks SG Planner

Happy New Year, dear readers! The year 2019 comes with new wishes, new beginnings, and of course, new planners! Yay! I'm excited for all of it. The new year for me means a fresh start for all the failures I've had for the previous year. Yep, I feel ya! 2018 was kinda rough for me, too. But anyways, I'm here to share with you a tool to help us face the days ahead.  I'm sure that some of us take life as it goes along. But there are others, like me, who have a planning personality. And lemme tell ya, it's really frustrating how things don't go according to plan. Most of the time, life doesn't make it go as planned. Ugh... But fret not! Even if life foils everything, that doesn't stop us from using planners! Wheee~ They're cute and inspirational. They give us a sense of "getting our life together" , too. Hahaha~ So for this post, I'm gonna share with you the Starbucks Singapore  2019 planner!  The 2019 Starbucks Singapore Planner

Lee Min Ho Mall Tour: SM Mall of Asia Leg

I still can't believe that it was just two nights ago (November 18, 2012), I saw Lee Min Ho in the flesh! As early as 5:30PM, I was already in SM Mall of Asia Music Hall, joining the fans as we eagerly wait for his arrival. The crowd was very overwhelming. I bet some people waited there two hours earlier than I did!  Lee Min Ho is a South Korean actor. His popular dramas include Boys Over Flowers, City Hunter, and Faith among others. His prowess as an actor and his to-die-for looks are enough to make women go gaga over him -me included!  He is my favorite actor. I love his dramas. In the future, as I gain more skills, I plan to cosplay his characters, especially Johnny from City Hunter. He is the reason why I love Korean products like Etude House . Now, I have another brand to love... and it's a Filipino brand! I'm very happy that Lee Min Ho is the latest endorser of the clothing line, Bench .  Crowds make me uncomfortable. It was my first time to have ever attended

[Review] Gluta-C Intense Whitening Body Scrub

Gluta-C Intense Whitening Body Scrub is a product that impressed me on my first try. Mostly, when I review beauty products, I use it at least a week to see the effects and results on my skin. I never thought that a body scrub can make me go "wow!" instantly! I got this from my Gluta-C Sample Room haul . And I used it the day after I got it. I was that excited!  This product is packaged in a tub. It is a soft, viscous, and grainy cream. The smell is nice, too! It has a cool perfume scent.  120g tub of Gluta-C Body Scrub This is how I used this: I wet my skin and then took an ample amount of the scrub and then applied it using circular motions. Afterwards, I put liquid body wash on a loofah then rubbed on my skin. I could feel the small grains from the scrub gently exfoliating my skin. I love the combination it does with the body wash. The bubbles and the foam make it comfortable! All the while, I know that my skin is thoroughly cleansed!  Here is the surprise!
