[Food] Cottage & Bricks

Here's another nice restaurant around Apgujeong area. Not only me, but this restaurant has been a favorite of the surgeons in our hospital as well. A tiny brunch cafe which feels homey. =)

What's interesting about this place is that the owner is a twin brother which look exactly the same. It's just that the one looks more cheerier and talkative than the other. It shocks me and my friends the first time we went there, when the boss take our order and go outside of the restaurant to make delivery and there is someone who look exactly just like him walking out of the kitchen to bring our food the next second.
Another thing is that they bake their own bread which taste super duper delicious~!
While waiting for your food to come out, the bosses will serve us with complimentary like this pink-colored water and the bread that I talked about above. And the pink colored water will turn into just a normal water after few minutes, I'm deadly curious about it but I still couldn&#…

Semi-permanent make up has become a trend in South Korea lately, since it helps to solve main problems for almost every working girls out there, which is waking up early to do your make up.

(3) The dry scalp will fall off after 3~5 days, but until the dry scalp fall off completely, please remember to put the ointment that is provided…

[Food] Sae Maeul Sikdang

새마을 식당 literally means New Village Restaurant. The big boss of this restaurant is Baek Jong Won, who came from a wealthy family himself but decline to following the foot step of his father and choose to become a chef and eventually a food tycoon himself. If you come to Seoul, either for traveling or having surgery, pay more attention and you might see a lot of this Ahjussi photos or pictures.
Not forgot to mention that recently Korean have been fancying chefs. They got a lot of cooking variety show with numerous popular chefs here and there. And these chefs is getting more and more attention, even some of them can get themselves an endorsement. And here is one my favorite... lolz...
Okay, back to the topic. There's two of this restaurant in Apgujeong Station. One is near exit no. 2 while the other one is near exit no. 4. Why should we pay attention to this? Because the one near exit no. 2 taste super duper horrible, even if I'm a big fan of this ahjussi's restaurant, but w…

[Plastic Surgery] One Jaw Surgery + Zygoma Reduction

People always told me that I have a longggg face. Well, without they telling me the truth, I know that I have a very long face. I bet everyone of you out there will be super self conscious of yourself if you've the same length with my face. I've been a laughing stock as long as I can remember. It was bullying when I was kid, and they were making fun of me when I'm on junior high, and they thought they were funny when they joked with me about my face during my senior high and under graduate studies.
I look older than my real age. Have no self confidence in making girlfriend, not even a friend if they don't start to talk to me first. Low self esteem makes it worse. And the worst thing is that it really hard for me to find a job in Korea when I have this kind of face. Though I don't want to say bad things about my own country, I've gotta admit that this country is a kind of "looks" driven country. And I bet it's the same in every other part of world,…

[Too Cool For School] BB Cream Foundation (Lunch Box)

One of the beauty tools that have really gotten into my heart recently is this BB Cream Foundation from Too Cool For School. The brand is not as famous as Etude or Face Shop outside Korea, and it's kind of a little bit pricy compare to other Korean street cosmetics here, but it really gives you out the best result, last long, and natural results compare to other brands. Well, at least that's how I feel about it. LOLZ~!

This set of BB Cream has 3 types of different color, which are No. 1 Silky Skin, No. 2 Watery Skin and No. 3 Healthy Skin. No. 1 and 2 has a kind of bright color, so those who have a white or bright colored skin can choose either one of it. While me, since I've a darker skin, my choice for myself is No. 3.



This BB Cream lunch box is being designed quite a little bit look like a lunch box if you use a little bit of imagination here and there. ^^ As the top of cover can be open like this and you will find a set of concealer and highlighter in it. Since both co…

Lillu

Wandering around naksongdae for the macaroon cafe, I came through this pasta place who always bombarded with customer during night but amazingly empty during lunch time. Maybe because ppl love to have pasta for dinner instead of lunch?



There is a shelf full of books where u can read it while having your meal. =)
And by ordering a pasta for 11,000 to 14,000 krw you can get a choice of free drinks from soft drinks, juices, coffee or tea. I chose ice green tea and it comes out with a free bread.



And finally…. tomato mozarella cheese pastaaaa!!! Which taste just so-so. lolz. It doesnt taste bad but it doesnt make you wanna come back to the store to have a second taste of it as well. T – T

I wonder if people bombarded this place not because of the taste of food but due to the homey feeling of the restaurant instead?


Guess what? This place has closed down since few months back~ =P
