THE BEST TIMES TO MAKE DUA IN RAMADHAN
Have you heard that Ajikin had flown to Korea miles awayyy to search for Kang Gary from Running Man? Hehe. I just came back from Korea last month and the memories are still fresh in my mind (konon-konon). This is my second times travelling with my friend outside Malaysia, everything on our own. Thank God Kak Dira already went to Korea for two times so she has background knowledge on Korea which helped us a lot during the course of the journey. Yeay!
Our tickets were bought separately— I bought mine and she bought hers. Discussions were made through phone cause we are million miles away from each other. The flight ticket to Seoul from KL was quite expensive so we’ve decided to tickets from KL-Busan instead. KL-Busan costed approximately RM469 (including 15 kg luggage) meanwhile Seoul-KL costed us around RM8++ (including 20 kg luggage).
As everyone knows, Air Asia charges separately for luggage. In order to minimize our budget, we’ve shared the fees of the baggage. Kak Dira bought 15kg luggage for KL-Busan. Meanwhile, I bought 30 kg luggage for Seoul-KL flight. This way was much much cheaper compared if you pay 10 kg luggage fee on your own.
We’ve stayed in Busan for 3 days 2 nights, and Seoul for 5 days and 4 nights which makes total of 8 days! Wohoo what a long holiday we had! Hehehe.
We departed at 8.00 a.m. Malaysian time and landed Gimhae International Airport at 3.45 p.m. Korean time.
Leesang’s cap, brought all the way from Malaysia to Korea. Hihi

Gimhae International Airport
This kid played with his toy a.k.a his luggage. Aren’t they cute? Hehe!
Looking for Gary oppa in the map. Oppaaaaaa where iz youu?
From the airport, we took a limousine bus to Changwon-si and the journey took around 30 minutes. The fare was 6,600 won.
Some of you might wonder why we had booked a hotel in Changwon and not in the middle of Busan. Previously, we’ve already surveyed hostels in Busan city through Agoda and Booking.com but unfortunately all the hostels and guesthouses were fully booked on May 4! Can you imagine that? So we had no choice but to find a place to stay though it is quite far from the city.
This is the most luxurious hotel we had during the trip (you’ll understand why later). We’ve booked a guest room costs RM190 per night.
Above in the picture is Mr. Kim who helped us to find our way to Namsun hotel. He wanted to take a cab on behalf of us but unfortunately (again!), there were no cab at that moment. The hotel was just 20-25 minutes walking away distance, so we just walk lah! Mr. Kim gave us his number and told us to call him if we needed any help. However, the main problem was, we didn’t activate roaming service, so the number was actually not helpful. Haha.
But he is a nice guy, isn’t he? Though we were strangers, he still offered help. Would you do the same to tourists?
All my bags are packed, I’m ready to go…
With the direction given by Mr. Kim, we finally reached err… reached somewhere nearby the hotel. Hehe. We got lost thus we asked help from an Ajashi to show us the direction to Namsun Hotel. He spoke Korean and we used English. Hehe so macam ayam dan itik la bit, but he understood our intention. Hehe.
Ajashi not only he had helped us with the direction, but also he helped me to take my 10 kg luggage to the hotel. Ahhhh alhamdulillah I felt so blesseddd! Hehehehe.
And finally we arrived hotel at 5.30 p.m. Presenting to you *drum rolls*… Namsun Hotel in Changwon-si, Busan!
Way to our room. Spooky atmosphere, isn’t it? Haha
The room number
The best thing about this hotel is, each room is occupied with a modem! Best sangat, the wifi connection was really really fast and good!
We spent our first night in Changwon by relaxing, watching TV, internet and updating our itinerary. Well, Kak Dira who did that actually. Hehe!
And so… the adventure begins
Part 2 will be coming soon. Till then, see you when I see you!
