This is a Thursday's Travels - Anything about previous, current and future (upcoming) travel exploits entry under my Singapore Travel Blog themed blog posts! For more info about the themed blog posts, do read the entry here.

While BFF and I were researching for our trip last year, we had decided that we wanted the hanbok experience. We wanted to wear a hanbok and walk along the streets in Korea.

I mean, we could buy a hanbok and bring it home but when will we wear it? Might as well rent a hanbok and have the full experience in Korea.

After doing some research, we came across Oneday Hanbok which allowed us to rent a hanbok in Korea. Plus the hanbok was great to cover my baby bump then! (was about 5-6 months pregnant, if I remembered correctly)

Oneday Hanbok was conveniently located at one of the train stations.

I was chatting with Yutakis one day and talking about photoshoots when he asked why I had not posted my pictures from the pre-wedding shoot I had in Korea. Oops! Guilty!

I took hundreds of pictures but here were the final few that we selected!

Personally, I thought the editing was a bit too fair but they convinced us that it is their style of editing. In any case, it was a fun experience. I actually wanna do another shoot (not in Korea lah. $$$) but a thrash the dress session. Would be fun!

Remember my previous blog post about trying out the gowns during my pre-wedding photoshoot in Korea? As promised, I will share pictures behind the scenes after #nadskai1314! (Why after? cos I wanted to keep the pics a surprise for those who were going to see my album! heh) I had to like keep it a secret since May 2013 when I reallllly wanted to share pictures about it! TORTURING WOR!

So as mentioned previously, the pre wedding shoot was very "alacarte". The gowns came from A bridal shop. Hair and makeup came from B Makeup shop and the photographer and studio came from C Studio. Very different from Singapore's bridal studio style where it's a one stop centre.

We were ushered into the makeup area early in the morning and this greeted my sleepy eyes.

OHMAIGAWD. I NEED A MAKEUP AREA LIKE THIS!!!!!!!!!

And soon, the makeup artiste did her magic and I was done.

Korean style of bridal makeup is very different from how Singapore's or Taiwan's style. Or at least, what I assumed from the bridal makeup shop I went to.

Things that they do not use:

  1. Ampoules
  2. Double eye lid stickers/glue
  3. Lower eye lashes

They prefer much lighter makeup and I had to coax them to put it a littttttle bit darker makeup for me.

This to them is super dark already. LOL. I had a lady from the bridal shop that helped me dress up during the whole 5 hours (inclusive of makeup, hair and photoshoot). The same lady also was responsible for light touchups. i.e. no makeup change. Only touch up of lip gloss.

Feeling like a princess here as they were fussing over me about which tiara to use!

As you guys may have already guessed, I'm a huge cat lover! I love cats! I have cats since I was 7! But after the death of my last cat, we never did adopt or got another cat ...

Honestly, it's a bit hard for us as we were rather attached to the last two cats and till today, we're still healing. It will take us a while before we could probably adopt another cat I guess?

Anyway..... when c(hubby) and I visited Korea for our wedding photoshoot, we decided to visit a Cat Cafe in Hongdae. We stopped by after our tea time at the Hello Kitty Cafe. I was actually meaning to find another Cat Cafe (I had visited Korea in February for work and managed to squeeze time to visit a Cat Cafe!) but found this instead!

As with most pet cafes, you'll have to pay an "entrance fee" which will also includes a drink, if I remember correctly it was close to S$10.

One has to leave the shoes in the lockers provided and also to sterilise our hands before entering the cafe.

The cats practically roam free in the cafe. They WILL disturb your drinks, so do take care of your items!

We are not allowed to manhandle the cats and we can't carry them. They'll have to come to you willingly.

The cats are quite nua and aren't very active. So we had to resort to tsk tsking them and trying to catch their attention with toys.

The orange kitty is not impressed by our meagre offering.

I had to resort to well... photobombing the cats. Hiding behind them and taking pics.

We felt like we struck TOTO when 2 cats leisurely strolled to us and nonchalantly plopped themselves into our laps.

SCORE!

THANK YOU DEAR CAT GOD!

And of course, the cats soon strolled away. Nonetheless it was a fantastic experience for us. Well, for me. The c(hubby) is well.. neutral to animals.

Which probably means.. no pets in future.
