Toy Store & Museum


Toy Museum (Toy Store)

Interesting Entrance..! :)

It’s a kind of toy store, but I would rather say it’s more like toy museum.

There’s an entrance fee which is only 1,000 KRW to look around this little museum.

Thousands of little toys from all over the world are displayed here,

and you can buy some of them …

Nothing seems cheap here, but it’s quite fun to just look around! J

Some toys are from long long time ago…

and many of the toys will remind you your childhood. :D

Star Wars...

Haha... Giant Astro Boy!!!

Snacks in old days~~

There are collections of many comic books, too!

Oh~~~ I love Pikachu!!!

Korean Shabu-Shabu Restaurant

Korean Shabu-Shabu Restaurant



Chaesundang is a well known Shabu-Shabu restaurant in Korea.

Korean Shubu-Shabu is not same as Chinese or Japanese ones.

There’re beef Shabu-Shabu and seafood Shabu-Shabu.
You don’t choose what vegetables you want to eat in Korea.
Usually, Shabu-Shabu in Korean restaurants is a set menu included meat or seafood
and all the vegetables such as mushrooms, cabbage, sliced potatoes, etc.
Also, there’re some fish balls, rice cakes, and pumpkins.

There're some steps to eat Korean Shabu-Shabu.
1. vegetables       2. meat (seafood)       3. noodles       4. poridge


First, you boil the soup and put all the vegetables in the soup.
When it starts boiling, you can eat vegetables itself or
you can add some of the meat(or seafood) in the soup
to eat together with the vegetables.

You can add some noodles
after you finish all the meat (or seafood) and vegetables in the soup.

This picture doesn't look that interesting.. :(
(sorry I forgot to take some pictures while I was cooking the noodles...)
but, you can just think of Kalguksu (칼국수), the Korean white noodles.

Then, one of the waiter/waitress comes to cook the egg porridge for the last. J

Yum~~~ :)

It seems too much food, but I’m sure you can almost finish it!!!
I always finish almost everything! :-)

It’s the best dish in winter as it is a hot and slow food,
and the soup itself is tasty as well.
As you see all the vegetables.. it is a very healthy food, too!!! :D
I love Shabu-Shabu in winter!!

There are normal set menus which are cheaper
and special set menus which have more beef (seafood) and variety of vegetables.

If you are Asian, especially Chinese and Japanese,
I'm sure you'll love Korean Shabu-Shabu!!
I've not seen anyone who didn't like this food yet.

And I think.. everyone can enjoy this food as it's a healthy and mild food. :)
