Seoul: Godabang Cat Cafe.

A friend of mine, who’s also a cat lover, brought us to this quaint little cat cafe near Konkuk University. And I swear I’ve never seen so many happy and well-groomed cats all together at once!

The entrance fee is a standard 8,000won (about S$9) which includes a drink. I chose hot chocolate and it’s pretty decent. Below is a list of dos and don’ts for guests, illustrated in a comical manner.

I think Scottish Folds (above) have the cutest ears ever. But it took me a little getting used to the Sphynx (below), which I thought resembled a piglet because of its pink skin.

Look at their expressions (!), I wonder what they saw??

There are other cat cafes in Seoul as well, and Godabang is a chain store with several outlets under them. The cafe is clean (doesn’t smell at all) and I think the cats here are, in fact, very fortunate to have people playing with them every day. Cat lovers would definitely love this place!

Seoul: Up the Tower.

I’m not a huge fan of korean drama, nor K-POP (for the record), so if left on my own, I probably wouldn’t go up the Seoul Tower to hang padlocks, exchange kisses and litter keys. But having said that, the atmosphere of love and happiness here is nonetheless fuzzy-cuddly-heartwarming.

How sweet, don’t you think? Maybe, just maybe, if I wake up one day coated in gula melaka, we might.

Seoul: In Blossom.

Was in Seoul for work last month when we found ourselves in a beautiful flurry of cherry blossoms. This was my first encounter with cherry blossoms so in my heart I secretly leapt for joy.

It was raining that weekend so I wore a pair of waterproof oxfords from melissa. These shoes are real life savers especially given our tropical climate. Plus, they’re so pretty!

More photos to come, so stay tuned! (:
