130726 Everland

and so i finally went to everland - for the rides. i've been going to everland for cosplay stuff, fireworks, etc, but i've never actually ridden the attractions there so i was quite looking forward to it. hehe. 00 told me that we needed to be there by 10am so that we can have enough time to ride everything, but in the end we only managed to set off at 10am and reached around 11+...

and the first thing we went for is the T-express - 3 times!

i like roller coasters, but i get sick of things easily when i take it too many times at the same time. =_= even though it's pretty fun, i wanna move on to other things too... and unfortunately during the 3rd time we rode it the tickets in 00's pockets flew off!!!! so we had to climb the hill and get new tickets from customer service again. thankfully we didn't have to pay extra if not it would have been such a downer...

here's a parade happening in the middle of the day. parades are just better at night~

this ride has the entire room turning and turning.

and we finally moved on to the animal attractions. everland is like a zoo and a theme park in one, there's so many animals!

queued for the bus to look at the tigers and bears.

this tiger has such an awesome sleeping position.

and there's the huge bears!!

when they stood up it was just woooooah. the bears get excited at the buses since the driver keeps throwing out food. one of them was even in the begging position. it was so cute.

there were animals on our bus too.

and we went on to look at even more animals after the bus tour.

not sure why they just kept climbing over each other...

and the baby cubs and baby chicks!

and my little baby! erhuhurhur. i just like this picture a lot. haha.

was supposed to go for the haunted house at night, but the tickets were fast selling out so we went around 5+ instead. you needed to pay an extra 5k won for this. reminded me of fujiQ's haunted hospital - and guess what, it was actually built by the same person... thankfully we didn't go at night later on - it was so SUPER scary! went in groups of 6, and i was pushed to the front by the group of guys. HEY. managed to switch to the middle later on.

it was rather scary but i tried to tell myself that everything wasn't real and they were all humans, but the 'ghosts' kept chasing and touching us! during the last way out when the doors flipped open one by one to reveal several ghosts, the guys practically dashed out all the way while i laughed at them from behind. 00 almost left one of his shoe in the house. it was hilarious!!!

there was an animal performance around 5+ (or 530? can't remember).

the animals were really well trained! they had the audience imitate tarzan's howl to get the parrot to fly over. it was pretty funny.

then we went for the loop roller coaster and had to practically drag ark to ride it cos he didn't want to ride in anything with loops due to one of the final destinations movie. tsk!

our last ride was this thing that sun round and round in the sky horizontally and vertically before we left everland around 9pm. didn't even get to see the fireworks because someone wanted to rush home to charge his battery so he could continue his devil maker.

we went to eat dalkgalbi. i didn't take any photos that day as i ate here before so these photos were from the previous meal. we actually have one of the best dalkgalbi i've eaten!

last time when we ate it we ordered noodles (they threw in 3 different kind of noodles too) to go along with it, and there was the knife-cut noodles as well. but this time we only ordered the chicken since someone was in a rush. but at least we had the rice at the end that was fried with the left overs.

and i was so mad at him for that over dinner. then i realised i shouldn't get mad since it was the last few days.. anyway. sighs.

130724 Konjiam Resort in the Summer

so mr k been skiing too often and he was rewarded with a deluxe room at the resort.. and i had the honor to go along to rest and relax hohohoh. so we took about a 2.5hours bus ride over to Konjiam resort and...

there's a neat little waterfall where people were already wading inside when we got there.. of cos it was all kids.

this is actually the building we were gonna stay in, feels like hdb eh...?

lo and behold! our huge room that's probably big enough for more than 5persons. there's 2 rooms, one of which is empty, though there's mattresses in the cupboard.

there's also 2 toilets, one in between the rooms and another in the master bed room.

there's a huge living room... that already comes with a sleeping person

and a full kitchen to boot! it's like a house!!

when it's not winter, a ski resort often turns into a golf course, since the land would be big enough for that to happen.

but since i don't play golf... (and anyway it doesn't seem to be turned into a gold course, either that or there's just no one playing golf) we headed over to the spa pool instead.

this glass thingy houses the indoor pools.

can't take much pictures since i'm swimming (or rather, just wading in between pools). they have hot and cold pools, indoor and outdoors and there's also all the massage functions in the pools. not bad, but definitely not worth 30k ++ won...

we stayed in for 3-4hours then came out to get dinner. since there's a kitchen, i suggested we do some cooking! of cos, like instant meals... hahahah.

had spaghetti and udon, and bought half a dozen eggs to throw in, plus some instant soup, rice and kimchi.

instant food is yummy here~ thank goodness for all the convenience stalls around. hohoh. since it wasn't too late, we went out for a walk to digest our dinner. there's some statues and fountains...

but there's really not much to look at. we came out to digest dinner but ended up eating ice cream... went back to retire for the day once the walk's over.

needed to check out by 12 the next day, and i think it was the first time we checked out on time since we slept before 11pm the day before. i cooked what's left of our instant food - marinated chicken vermicelli and spaghetti, with soup and whatever we have left of our rice and kimchi and eggs. 

we lazed around till it was almost 12pm, then checked out... while waiting for the shuttle bus to come, we walked around a bit, then left for yong-in. goodbye Konjiam~~
