Coffee, ladies and dogs

What’s not to love about them. Nothing at all, of course.

We stopped at Ewha Women’s Unversity this morning to meet up with an old colleague of Ariel. She brought us on a short tour of the campus and told us a little about its history, along with a building with magical powers. Like if you entered the entrance and took the stairs on the 3rd floor, it’ll bring you to the 6th floor instead. (0.0)

The campus was really huge by description and it had a lot of really nice trees from magnolias, sakuras and plum blossoms (ewha). Some building designs were modern looking and some had European influence, thanks to its history. The quick glance we had of the campus really looked like a top notch place for students pursuing their education. Though not much can be entirely said about it becoming somewhat a tourist destination now – there was even a tour bus!

Once we left, it was time to grab lunch and we headed to a place with ginseng chicken stuffed with rice. *slurp* in addition to that dish, our friend helped order another chicken dish with brown sauce and some noodles in it. Oh my go, it was awesome! And no, it wasn’t bulgogi. This tasted way better!

To top off the superb lunch, we grabbed some coffee in a back alley. Their Colombia Supremo was…supreme. It had the right acidity and roast to leave your tastebuds with the true taste of its beans. A definite wake up drink.

We took our coffee and walked, detoured to a cosmetics shops, spent almost a ton and headed to the infamous Bauhaus dog cafe. While it was possible to walk to the dog cafe, we took the bus because there was just too many items in hand after the ton of shopping.

When we arrived and walked in, we could see an area with smaller dogs and there was even a very cute Corghi. There was a waiting list to be allowed into the dog areas. It could be said this was good because there were limited seating area. And once our turn was called, we couldn’t wait to start playing with the furry friends.

When we got our treats to be shared, this furry friend happily climbed on top of the seat and sat there staring. Cute as he was, he seemed a little on the chubby side. But I was really shocked to see an Alaskan Malamute for the first time. That dog was huge! It was like the time the missus and I saw a St. Bernard in China and even that, looked like a bear. (0.0)

If you’re looking to check out a dog cafe, you should visit this one. And don’t forget to hug the Alaskan Malamute if you were given the permission and chance. 😀
