ATTENTION TO TRAVELLERS OUT THERE! Saat yang acapkali dinanti-nantikan oleh para pengembara diluar sana kini telah tiba. Baru-baru ini AirAsia telah mengumumkan penjualan tiket   penerbangan (free seats) dengan hampir 3 million promo seats available. Haaa, jantung dah start dup dap dup dap & jari pun dah mula tak keruan ni!

Before you continue your reading, do check the available flights HERE because im afraid you will miss their great offers!

List of AirAsia's destination - You name it! (RAMBANG MATA)

Bukan setakat murah, promo ini juga adalah untuk semua destinasi di Asia yang sedia untuk dipilih oleh anda semua. Bila lagi nak continue explore Asian countries kan? Just so you know that asian countries have a lot to offer such as foods, buildings, culture and of course festivals. 

Talking about festival, what festival that you wish to go and witness it by yourself? Uh oh! Before you give your answer, let me share my a-must-visited festival (and I really-really wish that I could go for this festival).



Let us hear (read) the conversation below to know what is the festival that I really want to go!






There you go! Now you know what is my choice. Well, previously I been to few countries in Asia but Korea is still not included in my "VISITED" list. Coincidentally, couldn't fully recall it but last night tiba-tiba termimpi I was in the middle of Seoul while holding a fancy map surrounded by huge crowd of fashionable people & colourful lights. 

Siapa la yang tak pernah rasa nak pergi Korea yang terkenal dengan  pelbagai tempat menarik, budaya unik serta orang-orang yang cantik & handsome. I bet most Malaysians would love to go Korea, especially those who are a big fan of Korean dramas or Kpop. 

DID YOU KNOW that there is a flight bound to Seoul (ICN) 14 times a week from Kuala Lumpur (KUL) to Seoul (ICN) via AirAsia X

Split by a fearsome border, the Korean Peninsular offers the visitors an amazing range of experiences, spectacular landscapes and 5000 years of culture and history. The name Korea is derived from the Kingdom of Goryeo, also spelled as Koryõ. Roughly half of the country's 50 million people reside in the metropolitan area surrounding its capital, the Seoul Capital Area, which is the second largest in the world (with approaximately 25 million residents).

HWACHEON SANCHEONEO (MOUNTAIN TROUT) FESTIVAL

Tahukah anda bahawa Mountain Trout ni merupakan salah satu aktiviti yang begitu terkenal dan menarik di Korea? Tahukah anda bahawa ianya winter festival? Pernah rasa tak memancing/tangkap ikan masa winter? 

What is it? - Apabila Hwancheoncheon Stream mula membeku pada musim winter, semua orang tempatan serta pelancong luar akan hasilkan satu lubang khas untuk mereka memancing untuk sancheoneo (mountain trout). The trout are know to live in the cold, fresh waters located in Hwancheon-gun. Aktiviti ini memerlukan tahap kesabaran yang tinggi but bila berjaya dapat ikan, confirm gembira semacam. Some choose to jump into the icy waters for hand-fishing. Festival ini memang menjadi kegemaran seluruh keluarga pada musim winter!

Why? - Dalam hati ni dah lama berhasrat nak bawa orang tersayang untuk travel, perhaps my parents. Before this asyik travel dalam negara je. Now, its time untuk ajak diorang travel dekat luar. If they want to travel, why not kan? Plus, kita dah merasa memancing secara normal di Malaysia ni. Now, apa kata kita cuba pula pengalaman memancing di air yang sangat sejuk pada musim winter. Selain itu, aku juga nak merasa makan ikan yang fresh (hasil tangkapan sendiri) on the spot! Curious sangat apa la rasanya bila memancing masa musim sejuk. Other than that, terdapat juga aktiviti-aktiviti menarik yang lain pada musim winter ni sebagai contoh Snow & Ice Rides dan macam-macam lagi. Last but not least, of course this experience will be shared to my families, friends and readers!


Since I never been there, I could only use other's photos to visualise the excitement of this festival through images

FOODS
*pictures from gone2korea.com*

Selain daripada melihat festival menarik mereka, travelling to South Korea is never complete if you don't taste their tradtional or signature dishes. Popular Korean dishes perhaps! Below are the list of foods that I have to try:

#1 
Bibimbap
Its a healthy, cheap and delicious meal that's usually served hot with rice. Looks nice and healthier!


#2
Bulgogi
This is most famous mainstream dishes, internationally, seasoned beef in savory sauce with mixed vegetables.


#3
Kimchi
Kimchi? Hmmmm. I would love to try the authentic one, from South Korea. It's made of fermented cabbage and seasoned with different ingredients.


#4
Korean Fried Chicken
I know, we got various types of chicken in Malaysia but seeing the photo above makes me wanna go Korea and try their Korean Fried Chicken.


#5 
Seafood Pancakes
This fried dish is made with fresh vegetables with different kind of seafoods (shrimp, squid and oysters) served with soy based sauce. It can be eaten as a treat, appetiser or meal.


OTHER ATTRACTIONS
Darangee Village (경상남도 남해 가천 다랭이마을)

8 INTERESTING FACTS ABOUT SOUTH KOREA
South Korea Map
#1
Sweet Potato Fact
They love sweet potato flavoured delicacies - main courses, desserts, chips, latte, bread and salads. Semua nak ada rasa sweet potato. Me too!

#2
Born a Year Old
Born in South Korea, you are considered a year old. Meaning that, you're a year older than others from outside of the country.

#3
Drinking in Public is Legal
Uh? This country allows the people to drink in public. It is considered perfectly legal which the people can carry alcoholic containers in public & take a drink or two. Oh well. 

#4
Deathly Facts
Writing other's name in red ink pen indicates the person is about to die (some of us also believe in this). They believe number 4 (four) brings unfortunate. Same. They believe leaving an electric fan overnight would kill the person sleeping directly below it (fan death concept). Uh, sounds like Final Destination. 

#5 
Shopaholic
Indeed, it is! They love to shop as this country has some of the biggest shopping malls in the world - stores open until 4 am & restaurants, bar, cafe open till 11 pm. No wonder South Korea is the best place for shopaholic. 

#6 
Taegeukgki
Same like other countries, their flag has a whole lot of philosophy behind it. 

#7 
Hangul
Most of them speak and write the same language, which is Hangul. It consists of 14 consonants and 10 vowels. 

#8 
Colour Coded Taxi
This one is quite interesting! The taxis in South Korea are coloured according to the level of service offered. Greay/white taxi, basic car and not so experienced driver. Black cab, you will get a luxury car with more experienced driver
