Coffee in Queens Park… Gangnam Style!

I am still so high from our recent trip to Seoul, Korea.  I was with my best friends from high school and we all have never been to Korea 🙂  So it was so great to explore a new country with my oldest friends 🙂 This wasn’t really part of our itinerary but ever since the song “Gangnam Style” became so popular, we’ve always wondered… what exactly is in Gangnam??? 🙂

So we took the train to Gangnam.  Dominique was the assigned “trainer”, our train leader.  LOL!

So after three stops here, change trains, two stops there… (I think…) we were in sunny but damn cold Gangnam! 🙂  I think it was about -15 degrees at that time.  All I remembered was that my ears were in pain.  It kinda felt like the pain I get sometimes in the airplane!

It was a beautiful day but just too cold to walk outside too long.  So we, the islanders, headed towards our destination, hands in our pockets, our scarves covering our entire heads and our legs walking as fast as we can to keep us warm.  Haha!

We didn’t enter the Galleria but it reminded me so much of Harrod’s in London.

I absolutely love trees without leaves.

Queens Park was just about three blocks away from the train station where we came from and I never felt this happy to enter a heated room.  Haha!  The sunlight was not enough to keep us warm.

Queens Park is a bakery and cafe.

My friends and I were actually craving for some breakfast food after all the kimchi and bibimbap 🙂 Hehe  So we shared an order of Eggs Benedict.  Soooo yummy!!! The caramelized onions were delish.

Claudette ordered some ice cream. Look at that beauty!  It never really melted.  Haha!  It was that cold.  LOL!

And Isabel ordered some cheesecake with fresh fruits.  So refreshing to look at and eat 🙂

Mike had a slice of this awesome cake!  It had some chocolate, banana and mocha cake in one slice! OMG.  Sorry, I ate most of it! Haha!

And finally, of course, my cup of love 🙂  Gangnam love 🙂

This was probably our most expensive meal throughout our trip!  Haha!  Just to give you an idea… The coffee was about 10,000 won which is around P400, the Eggs Benedict was 20,000 won, about P800.  LOL!!!  But it was worth it 🙂  At least now I can say, I had brunch Gangnam style! 🙂

We missed our other friends, Angela, Ria and Kris! 🙂  You’ll see more of them in my other posts about Korea, a whole lot more to come!

Kung Hei Fat Choi, everyone!!! Here’s to more adventures 🙂
