Travel Vlog: After Grace has left to fly back home, it’s down to only me and my cousin plus our moms who were in town. Our moms had a plan of their own that day and so did we. We took a forty minutes subway ride to Jamsil (잠실) to meet up with Ken. He has asked me earlier that week if I want to hang out and go for a cherry blossom photo hunt at Seokchon Lake Park (석촌호수공원) since spring was at its peak that week. I never actually been to Seokchon Lake Park during spring so of course I said yes.
(See more pictures & read about our Seokchon Lake Park exursion here.)
Later that afternoon, Ken wanted to check out MMM Records (음레코드), another place that we both haven’t been to. And since he was the one who found the place, both me and my cousin just followed his lead when looking for this place. MMM Records is located in the hilly neighborhood of Hannam-dong (한남동) which didn’t exactly made it easily accessible by foot. I’m telling you, we went through so many small alleys and walked up and down so many steep hills when trying to get to this place. Marshellia almost passed out and I seriously thought that I was going to get another asthma attack—which I haven’t had in a very long time by the way—when we were following Ken who’s following the direction from his phone. But then again, both of us are not exactly the definition of fit girls, so please take my comments with a grain of salt ;) But I do have to tell you, if you’re planning to visit MMM Records from Hangangjin Station (that’s where we were before we headed to this place) on foot, do wear comfortable shoes and prepare yourself to do a little bit of cardio.
When we finally arrived, we browsed around the place for a bit (read more about it here) before finally ordered our drinks and decided to bring them up to the rooftop to enjoy the sunset. Nobody was there so it was nice to have the whole area to ourselves. Marshellia and I ordered a drink which we were suppose to share but she ended up finishing almost all of it and left me with only a little left with plenty of ice cubes. Oh well. Since it was our last stop of the day, we were all pretty tired from the walking around and hiking the steep hills so we pretty much just chilled there and talked until the sun was down before making our way back to the subway station.
