Pictures speak louder than words, aren't they?

It reminds me with mountain in Teletubbies Children TV Show, LOL

Suncheon Garden Expo was so crowd that day...
Unfortunately, quite hard to take good photos without photo-bombing people... ;A;
I thought there are several groups at the moment, I could see many middle-aged people there.


Meanwhile, look at this photo... So cute, aren't we? XD *self-slap*

We were here to ride rail bike! What's rail bike?
Well, for short explanation, it's kind of bike that settled in rail :p

And here we go!

About Yeosu Ocean Rail Bike:
Visitors can enjoy a railbike ride along the coastline while enjoying the view of Yeosu's beautiful blue sea.
Reminisce about childhood as you ride along the beautiful ocean road and pass through tunnels. This thrilling rail-bike experience is guaranteed to refresh your mind and body.



The weather was soooo chilly >____<
I teamed up with Suzan, Fye and Kinna in same bike~



Hard to take any appropriate photo, because it's so windy and chilly *___*
Well, it was the best photo that I could took at the moment, LOL


We're entering the tunnels, and you can see those pretty decoration lamps! ^___^
So beautiful, aren't they?


After riding a rail bike, we had sight seeing of Yeosu Ocean scenery and took some photos (definitely, Muahahaha! :P )

Ms. Seony kindly lent me her spare jacket ^___^ Thank you!



What a peaceful city :D 
So refreshed! Sometimes you need to going far away from crowd cities to refresh your mind and body. 

Time was up! Now it's time for dinner!
Heading to the restaurant right now~
Guess what would we eat tonight? ƪ(ˆ▽ˆ)ʃ

Me and Joyce from Philipine

6.20 PM - 8.00 PM (GMT +9): Dinner at Yeosu
Location: Yeosu Dolge 여수 돌게
Weather: still chilly... *brrrr



Main dish for tonight:
Ganjang Gejang 간장게장

Cleaned out crab marinated in soy sauce is a Korean style dish. Famous for its Ganjang Gejang try tasting the Yeosu's own Ganjang Gejang callen Bapdoduk () / "Rice Thief". Bapdoduk refers to side dishes that you must eat lots of rice with for the best taste. By mixing rice with the eggs attached to the lid, you will taste the Bapdoduk's specialty.
Information about Ganjang Gejang: maangchi | wiki

Basically, these crabs are uncooked / raw '___' 
they're marinated with soy sauce for a while to get the best taste.
This was my first experience to eat uncooked crab... Wonder how its taste...
My tour guides said that these Ganjang Gejang from Yeosu is the best, special dish from Korea.


I love crab, I separated them into pieces with my bare fingers :p
After tasted them.... they're good and delicious, but I'm not a raw-food person >____<
I couldn't finish the crabs and only ate seaweed soup and grilled fish instead.
I passed the crabs to KTO's staffs who are Koreans; and as Korean, they love Ganjang Gejang very much!





Took some photos after dinner, I saw Azalea flowers at random house near the restaurant XD


We also went to mini-market to buy some drinks, and I tried Ice Cream named Maerona 메로나 :p
My korean friends recommended it for me. It tastes so good!

Arrived at MVL Hotel, Yeosu



So tired and really want to sleep..┌("˘o˘)┐
Meeting my another comfy bedroom~ 
KTO's staffs were so kind! ^^ But why they prepared double beds instead of single bed? *___* ㅎㅎㅎ



Scenery from my room's window

Nice wide-screen LCD, watching random news channel TV (which I didn't understand LOL) after took a nice bath and ready to sleep! ^^



That's all~ I'm done with Day 3 ^^
