Summer Trip to South Korea day 4

As expected, just because we were a bit late going to bed, we couldn’t wake up early, it’s already 6AM in the morning. We should catch the first bus to Seoul at 06.30, but still I had to shower before going to terminal, then straight to toilet, and make it as fast as I could. Sonia and Dinda already decided, it’s better to take bath later when reached Seoul. It’s good to realized that we already packed our backpack last night, prepared clothes for tomorrow and honestly it was one of excuses that made us late in the morning. I thought Dinda and Sonia still half conscious, because they didn’t talk too much and kept yawning. Actually, I felt bad for them, because I’m the only one whose could showered at time like this, (sorry friends, I don’t mean to be selfish but I had to clean before going outside according to my condition at that time). Back to the story.

After left key room at receptionist, we walked slowly and tried not to make some noise because everyone still sleeping. We move to the bus stop and tried to stop any cab which pass by. Actually, the road still empty at this time, citizen started their activity at 8 or 9 AM. I keep praying and hope the bus still waiting for us. Thankfully, a cab stopped in front of us, he asked our destination, I said “Sokcho Express Bus Terminal”, but he looks couldn’t understand it until Sonia pointed the map, and tried to explained that we would going back to Seoul, then he said “ahhh, Basse, xjfhdjnjbsyug%@#$&$%#@,Seouuuuul”, then I replied him ”Ne, Basseee, Bassee to Seouuul” Ok, I a bit familiar about this situation, the driver nod, and start to increase the speed. 10 minutes later we arrived at Express Bus Terminal, it cost only KRW 3.900, the driver smiled to us, so to be thankful, I bowed to him and said “Gamsahamnida ahjussi, jinnjja Gamsahamnida”, then we leave him alone.

At ticket box, an ahjumma asking how many people would travel with her hangeul, I showed her my finger for 3 persons, then she gave me the tickets. Alhamdulillah we make it on time, the bus would going to Seoul at 7 AM. We make it guyssssss!!!!! After put luggage on the bus storage, enter the bus, then sit on this comfortable seat again, my sit number for today was 11, right beside the window again. Good bye Sokcho, thanks for this amazing trip, I would remembered all my poses at Mt.Seorak with Sonia and Dinda, and other ridicules thing that we made.

At Sokcho Terminal Bus, on the way back to Seoul

Goodbye Seorak 😀

Oh God, I’m very excited today, I would met ”CNBLUE”, it was for the first time in my life something like this happened. Oh ya, I received another email from KBS staff, I should be there at 2 PM or they would cancel my free ticket to enter KBS Music Bank. Even, they send me a little map how to go to KBS Office by subway, it quite far from our guesthouse at Daehagno area, but it was also made my heart beating fast and couldn’t hardly wait to go there, “calm down Un, you could be there on time” (that’s what I say in my heart). I should sleep now, to make a fresh look, it would be bad if I appeared with dark cycle on my eyes.

More event will be coming up! So, always stay tuned to KBS World ;D

However, so many times I read about the event eligibility, there was nothing wrong, and I could fulfill it except one thing, I don’t have any collection of Kpop CDs, posters or even making a placard, it was impossible for me to make it. I try to call my ex housemate Fenny (another K-pop & K-Drama addict also a fan of Super Junior Kyuhyun), I know she had a bunch of it. Unfortunately, she had going back to her hometown in Cirebon, and she couldn’t send me her K-pop collections.

Maybe, I should give up now, I don’t have anything to participate, even I couldn’t show them how much I addicted about South Korea, then my mind full of my summer trip itinerary and about how to get  free ticket KBS Music Bank.

1 week before departure date, I opened KBS World TV facebook notes, then there was another announcement post at 14th june 2011.
