DAY 2 (part 1): Seoul N Tower ~

Today we slept in… I woke up toward 11am and spent half of the day browsing internet and chilling out. Laogong went outside to buy some water and cookies and we just kept comfortable at the hotel.
Towards 3pm we took off and rode the metro to Myeongdong Station.

I was smart enough to carry a cardigan (only for the subway rides) with me - the air-conditioning is freezing!!

...not quite sure which way to take, the guide book only indicated which station we have to get off

a funny street art picture XD

there was a really cute coffee shop on the way... Koreans seem to be infatuated with "coffee shops" anyway

From there we walked up a hill to the Cable Car Station that would lead to N Seoul Tower. We took the Cable Car and then arrived at the Tower. There we took many camwhoring pix on the way and bought combi-tickets for the Teddy Bear Museum and Observatory.

finally found the cable car station! (;´ρ`) グッタリ

yay! N Seoul Tower, we're coming!! ( ^ _ ^)∠☆

finally able to see the tower from vicinity!

'You're Beautiful' fan merchandise! The pig-rabbit was everywhere

 Korea goodies - how can you not love these? ヾ(●⌒∇⌒●)ノ わーい

entrance to the Teddy Bear Museum ⊂(● ̄(エ) ̄●)⊃

First we visited the Teddy Bear Museum… it was very informative and SO cute! I'll reserve some Teddy Bear Eye-Candy in a separate post. ^^
Then we played some games and also tried our luck on a cute ufo catcher but unfortunately didn't manage to win one of these cuties TT_TT

I wanted a red one so badly! (*´ο`*)=3 はふぅん

The observatory was nice, too. There were two observatory floors:
The higher one were you can enjoy the view standing and using a telescope to stalk the streets was quite funny because each direction was marked with the name of the countries in that direction and the distance to reach them.
The lower one was a café were you could enjoy the view sitting... but when we arrived it was already full of couples so I could just take a quick snapshot of how it looked like. (;⌒▽⌒)σ

the gorgeous view in the upper floor

The lower floor with all the lovey-dovey couples...

(lower floor) d'aawwwing at all these couples... 

the traditional wedding ceremony show

When we got out of the tower we saw the last 5 minutes of a "traditional Korean wedding ceremony" show... ―(T_T)→ サクッ 
Afterwards we discovered the surrounding of the tower and took the cable car back to Myeongdong...
