Food in Korea

I've came to Korea for almost two weeks now and I have been eating different kind of food every single meal. Though I didn't snap all the food I ate, I will share with you some of the food me and my friends ate throughout these 2 weeks.

This is Cheese Ramyeon [치스 라면]. It's actually instant noodles but it's very famous and you can find it in almost every food shop. There are differnt types of Ramyeon: plain Ramyeon (cheapest), cheese Ramyeon, seafood Ramyeon, etc.

This is Wan Tan Mee! Can't believe there's actually a famous wan tan mee shop hidden underground in the Nampo-Dong town. It tastes quite nice. There are more than 10 wan tans in each bowls but they are all shrinked compared to Malaysia's wan tan.

I think this is hot Bibimbap. [Not very sure] All the vege, egg and rice will be stirred together and eat. It's quite a unique style of eating.

This plate is one of the oily dishes - Kimchi Fried Rice [김치볶음밥]. I've not tried this yet, but it should be quite yummy.

These are side dishes they called it 盘餐. You will get a few of these side dishes in each restaurant in Korea. The bottome 2 dishes are the most common you can find it almost everywhere. It's free and you can refill as much as you want.

This ad was taken inside McDonald's - McPork? Haha.. I hope I can order this in Malaysia. ShinKeat bought one to try. It tastes not bad but it's quite small. One more thing, they don't give chilli sauce in McDonald's, only Ketchup [if and only if you ask from the counter]

Don't really remember the name of this meal. It's meat in soup with rice. Simple but delicious.

져육덮밥!! It's one of our favourite dish. White rice with pork with spicy sauce. The serving was quite big [as in having meat more than rice]. Quite a worthy meal I say.

Another set of side dishes from the "Tuna Shop" [name given by seniors for the tuna side dish served] Seems like our seniors like to visit this shop because the owner of this shop always give us free food [they called it service] without fail everytime we visit. Some more the side dishes are delicious.

This is one of the service of the Tuna Shop - Kimbap [김밥]. It's like sushi eh? Not bad.. =P

This is another dish of white rice with some meat. Something like "man fan" in Chinese restaurant in Malaysian eh.

Nasi Goreng Pattaya?! They called it Omelette Rice. Yummy~ Yummy~

Another service from Tuna Shop. Fried wan tan with some vege and sauce to mix together.

Finally, Baskin Robbins ice-cream!! Ate at Seomyeon, quite cheap if convert to RM though.
The food shops here quite different the ones in Malaysia. Most shops near Dongseo University are small shops that accomodate 15-20 people. Side dishes are always give - between 3 to 7 dishes and they don't serve any drinks besides plain water. Wee~~ The food here cooked in very little oil but I can hardly find any fruits to eat because the fruits here are quite expensive. Hehe.. I'm going to watch Transformers with my seniors tomorrow [saturday] night. Hope I enjoy my weekend. =P Billy, out.

Lab NM612

Situated on the sixth floor of New Millenium Building in Dongseo University, NM612 - This is where I'll be working for the next four months. My lab consists of 7 people - 5 Masters students, 1 professor and me. Don't get me wrong, the professor in this lab is not my supervisor. He is also under my supervisor - Prof Lee Jun Jae.

The environment inside my lab [Ling (outsider), Teresa, Shamar, Hofun]

Me and Teresa Liew [Her table is to the left of mine]

Hofun and me [He aint telling his real name]

ChunWei [He wasn't in lab when I snap the photos]

Teresa's place, my place and Shamar's place

KyungRan, ChunWei and Hofun's tables

The professor Shin's place [partitioned]

Me and my labmates [Hofun, Shamar (Indian), me, Teresa, KyungRan (Korean)]

Actually, there is one more lab mate I have - ChunWei. He went out already while I take the photos. So, there're 4 Malaysians, 1 Indian and 1 Korean in my lab. Not bad huh? Hehe.. Well, I'm going to meet my professor in charge tomorrow to get to know my tasks. More photos and updates soon, I promise. =P Billy, out.

View from my apartment

From the entrance of DSU [Dongseo University] looking out

DSU lift [press once to select, press again to cancel floor selection]

Ubiquitous Intelligent Town [UIT] - The first building from entrance
Suhan [1st floor] and Shin Keat [8th/top floor] training in this building

The coriddor of labs/lecturer offices

Toilet - auto flush [this university is damn high tech, haha..]

The sixth floor of UIT, leads to the 2nd floor of New Millenium building

SuHan's lab [This is her packed workplace with 6 other students]

New Millemium Building (NM) - My lab is in this building [6th floor], so does ChauLun [also 6th] and DeYan [2nd floor]

DeYan's lab on second floor of NM building

lobby of NM building

Sky Lounge [restricted access to lecturers only] - 15th [top] floor of NM building

Taken from the window of UIT 6th floor

The huge balcony right outside my lab - people smoke and talk here

Taken from the huge balcony - The 5-storey blue building is my apartment

Steps, steps, steps - everwhere are steep slopes here

More slopes to climb...

A park at the top of the campus [phew, tired climb]

Right in the middle is the legendary dolphin....

... And here I am touching it, to make myself cleverer [from the legend, haha]

Beautiful plants inside the campus

The red leaves tree [bottom right corner is the enlarged leaves]

ShinKeat, DeYan, SuHan and me [feels like autumn with the red leaves =P]

Steps and nice trees

More steps? [really tired walking around DSU]

The area between NM building and Design Hall [where we usually have our lunch there]

Last but not least, I present to you the Magic Door. It is situated on the second floor of New Millenium Building. You have to go through that door to reach DeYan's lab. =D

Interesting door eh? It was white at first. When someone approaches it, it becomes clear and anyone can see through. hehe... That's about it from my own campus tour. It was very tiring to climb all the way up as my apartment is at the bottom of DSU. Me and other trainees went out to SeomYeon with some seniors later in the afternoon. That'll be in another post.... Billy, out.

My Dormitory @ Dongseo University

This is the place where me and other trainees stay while training in Busan - 오 진 (ojin). There're 2 blocks of apartments there. One for guys and another one for girls. We 4 guys stayed in apartment 107, which is on the ground floor. Here're some pictures that shows the interior of the apartment.

Main door and shoe rack

Living room with all our wardrobes and the front balcony

The most important part of the apartment, TOILET! [with water heater and floor heater for winter season]

The kitchen where we seldom step in there.

Me and ShinKeat's room

ChauLun and DeYan's room

There's one more single room which is empty but the seniors told us that it will be hot staying in that room, so we decided not to used that room except dumping our dirty clothes into it. Haha... These apartments are very near to our labs [the place we work], there are also the first building you see when u come to Dongseo University. Check out next post for some photos around the campus. =P Billy, out.
