My October plan is to try engage with my body, make it more healthy, start to get fitter as the winter is around the corner and many a new adventure seems to be on the horizon. I think it is an an important goal.
My latest finds include a few of Seoul’s very hip veggie eateries including:
Plant Cafe (Itaewon), Vegetable (Sinsa) and So-Iroum.
Here a few pictures:

The flowery Moseley suburb of Birmingham, a popular place to call home and offers a handful of bars, restaurants and shops to local resident and visitor alike.
One of my personal favorite cafes is Maison Mayci, located next to the Sainsbury’s Local it offers a comfortable atmosphere, great food and coffee.
It is a French owned business.
Bangkok’s ChinaTown is a very popular hotspot for visitors to the city, the food, the shops are the calling point for people who flock to ChinaTown to explore the vibrant and lively streets.
It’s well worth a trip!

One of my favourite parks in Bangkok was Lumphini Park, it is a massive park that covers 142 acres, with so many parts to explore.
It is pretty, it is very relaxing and you just never know what animals you may bump into… some were a bit scary!
The park was created in the 1920s by King Rama VI on Royal property, during World War II it served as a base for the Japanese.
It is named after Lumbini, the birthplace of the Buddha in Nepal.
Use of the swimming pool requires a medical certificate for foreigners (so you can always try the pool at the Crowne Plaza and get the above view!)
It’s cute, it’s adorable and the best place for any teddy bear lover (me included)
Any trip to Jeju for a teddy bear lover must include a visit to the cute Teddy Bear Museum (제주 테디베어뮤지엄).
It is a great place, you’ll need a fully charged battery and there is a Starbucks opposite to recharge^^

Pudong is across from the Bund in Shanghai, home to the skyscrapers and most likely you will spend a lot of time either looking from the Bund side of the Huangpu River at the beautiful array of modern buildings and looking behind you at the historic range of buildings.
Pudong is home to the Lujiazui Finance and Trade Zone, the Shanghai Stock exchange, the beautiful and iconic ‘Oriental Pearl Tower’, the awesome Jin Mao Tower (that offers a beautiful bar at the top, named Cloud 9 on the 87th), the Shanghai World Financial Tower and many more.
View from Cloud9
Pudong can easily be explored by foot and there is a high risk of a ton of shopping!
The TOP location for people with a good sense of humour and a love of things cheeky, Jeju Love Land. This will give you a whole new picture of how Koreans think and work!
(though maybe the high number of love motels and Kdrama could well be a hint!)
The trendy, stylish and simply divine 10 Corso Como has arrived in North Seoul at the Lotte Department store’s Seoul ‘Avenuel’ with a divine Cafe which is divine.
The new 10 Corso Como offers a handful of sections: women, men, beauty, books and design, restaurant, cafe and garden.
Quicklink to their bookstore.
I think 10 Corso Como is always worth at the least a little look around – and a nice drink!

Are you a chocolate lover? Is Nutella, breakfast? or even, lunch and dinner?
s a choco-holic, Nutella has always been my number one choice!
So…. let me introduce to you Hyundai Department Store in Pangyo (south of Seoul) and a short metro ride from Gangnam Station to Pangyo (on the ShinBundangLine) or a bus ride from Express Bus Terminal.
On arrival at the department store, head downstairs and you will see it – the moment you get off that escalator… and go eat!!!!!!!!!!
We found a magical coffee shop on the back streets of Seokcheon Lake road, aka Coffee Street. I highly recommend you drop by, have a chit-chat, enjoy great coffee, play a game, draw and chill! (btw, the cookies are awesome!
