Hello new day! I was afraid to face this day.. Because that night would be my last night in Korea T____T
However, I slept well last night but still feel unhealthy.. We went to Golden Bay to have our breakfast.
한식당 (han-sik-dang): Korean Restaurant
일식당 (il-sik-dang): Seafood Restaurant
Azalea really could be found easily in Korea, especially in Spring time ^^
The food display attracted me little bit.. due to their details XD
Believe or not, those are not real.. though they looks delicious.. LOL
We're going to Korean Restaurant named 픙경마루 (Peung-Gyeong-Ma-Ru)
I had to say that this is our first simplest meal so far XD
They were still yummy~
11 AM (GMT+9)
Mokpo Yacht Experience
Location: Mokpo City 목포시
Weather: Cloudy & still chilly
Are you ready for the Yacht?? ^___^ Actually I was excited because it was my first Yacht experience ever!
I've heard about city named Mokpo.. this city was ever mentioned in some Korean dramas that I've ever seen before XD
Mokpo Yacht Marina (목포 요트 마리나)
Mokpo Marina is a modern yacht harbour offering good shelter and 24 hour security. The marina is owned and operated by the university. Mokpo marina has a yacht club, sailing school and a boat yard. There are a few spaces for hard standing. The marina has an expansion programme for both the number of berths and the marina facilities.
Mokpo City is in South Jeolla Province, on the southwestern tip of the Korean Peninsula. There are frequent trains to Seoul and there are a number of ferry routes serving islands in the Yellow Sea and Dadohae National Maritime Park. The port of Mokpo is not far from Yudal mountain, a picturesque area with numerous tourist facilities. The city has good shopping for provisions.
The harbour itself is very clean, neat and I could see many boats and yachts there :D
I like their cleanliness and neatness!

This was our Yacht~ Teehe~ ^^
Mineral water, some drink, and tissue! :D What a nice hospitality!
Inside the Yacht, there are sofa, mini kitchen and mini bedroom :)
I feel so dehydrated in my last two days in Korea.. I forced myself to not drink too much because the weather is chilly.. I can't get sweat and I always need to go rest room often in that situation '____'
|Me, Adele and Kinna|
|Also, I didn't bring my lip balm (only tinted lip balm)... so my lips area dried awfully >_<|
The view above the yacht~ ^^
I thought I got cold that day, I choose to sneak up into the dock rather than enjoying the breeze.. T_T
Well, do I look pale?

I tried the 매실 maesil (plum) drink inside the dock ^^ it's quite good
Random shot. I found this wet tissue is kinda cute XD look at its packaging~

What's exactly a place named "10 Corso Como"? Well, If you have seen the latest MV of PSY "Gentleman", you may recognize a unique store that used as filming spot :D

About 10 Corso Como:
10 Corso Como is a shopping and dining complex in Milan, Italy. It combines outlets that show and sell works of art, fashion, music, design, cuisine and culture. It was founded in 1990 in Milan, by gallerist and publisher Carla Sozzani.
The Complex began with an art gallery and a bookshop. Other spaces soon followed: a design and fashion store in 1991, the 10 Corso Como Cafe in 1998, a small hotel (with only three rooms) in 2003 and the Roof Garden in 2009.

The concept of this store is really unique, combining art, fashion, music, design, cuisine and culture in one complex :) No wonder their works are pretty expensive, because their uniqueness and their works could be considered as high-end products..
