I decided to participate in Georgie’s “A Day in the Life” linkup since June 18, 2016 proved to be a crazy Saturday. I tend to do a lot more on the weekend than during the week, but this particular Saturday kept me hopping more than usual. In fact, I was pretty much out and about for twelve hours. It was a day full of food, dentist, coffee, haircut, kids, more food, and so forth so on! I didn’t take photos, though. I was too busy, and the thoughts of taking photos just never hit me ^^;;
Brunch and Dentist
My friend, Chibitoaster, and I had scheduled a dentist appointment together. We met at the Hamilton Hotel’s Paris Baguette, and I grabbed their iced latte and discovered that their coffee wasn’t that bad at all! We decided to have some food before our appointment, and because of the stinkin’ hot weather, I suggested we have some naengmyeon at Donga Naengmyeon; this cold noodle dish was perfect for the hot weather! We made it to the dentist, and I suffered through the scaling process. Next week, I have to come back to fix my cavities — boo! Then again, two cavities after not seeing the dentist for seven years? That’s not too bad, haha!
Guesthouse, Haircut, Photo, and Kebabs
After the dentist, we stopped by Chibitoaster’s guesthouse to drop her bags off. We took a cab to my area, and we stopped by my regular hair salon. My fringe and hair needed major trimming. I hadn’t cut my hair for a year, so I was definitely overdue for a cut! The process didn’t take too long, and we headed back to back to Itaewon for Chibitoaster to get her photo taken for her new ID. That thankfully was done in fifteen minutes! The place in my area told us to come back Monday . . . uh, nope! Afterwards, we went downstairs to have some kebabs in Ankara Picnic, which is also my favourite kebab place in Itaewon. I had the chicken one, and it was so good!
Coffee Shop and Chromebook
We decided that we had enough running around, so we made our way for Magnolia Design Cafe located behind the Yongsan-gu Office. We both had an iced latte, and we talked and chilled for a while. Chibitoaster sketched away, while I did my online tasks on my Chromebook. Chibitoaster left soon to check into her guest-house, and I stayed in the cafe for another hour and a half catching up on blog-related tasks. In between that, I ordered a grapefruit ade.
A couple of weeks ago, I’d offered to watch one of my friend’s two kids. Today was my friend’s wedding anniverary, so I gave them a date night as a present. The kids and I were dropped off at Dragon Hill Lodge, the hotel on base. There we had dinner at Pizza Hut, and then they had a wild and crazy time in the play park. We all cooled off with some ice cream, and then I sent them out to play again. When it was time to go, we took a cab to their place. I could tell they were pretty tired, but they didn’t want to sleep yet, so I had them get into their pyjamas and we did Mad Libs and played Candy Land before they crashed and knocked themselves out. I guess the play park tired them out! The parents were so shocked to hear that they’d gone to bed with no issues. I must have a magic touch! XD
Late Dinner and Drinks
Finally, we’re almost near the end of my long day! Chibitoaster and I met up again, and we went to Noxa Oriental to have some late dinner and drinks. I had some Thai shrimp fried rice and one cocktail called Shanghai Tang, which is a passion fruit mojito. After a long week of work and a long day today, I figured I deserved a drink, haha! It was a nice way to end the day. Good food, drinks, and conversation — that’s all I need to be happy when I’m out and about. Thus ends my long, crazy Saturday. I had a great day, but it was also exhausting! I’m thankful for today being my bum day!
