I’m not a seafood person. Nope, Definitely not. But everyone else was. So they picked out an octopus and some crabs and its yum yum for them.

Everyone thoroughly enjoyed the grub. So if you’re a seafoodie like everyone else in my family but me. Do head down to check out Noryangjin Fish Market.

Here are the opening hours:
01:00 – 18:00 (wholesale auction)
07:00 – 20:00 (dried fish)
24 hours (raw fish)
Open throughout the year.

Technically you could just pop by any time you want. Definitely an experience and an interesting place to check out if you’re visiting South Korea.

Stay Fishy all!

Fish Wish?

In latest news around my world, it seems i have dipped my hands into something i never thought i would.

Well due to the immense lack of patience an such, i could never fathom the notion of sitting or standing somewhere and waiting for it to happen. Yes i’m talking about fishing.

Spur of the moment impulse thing, i got myself a fishing rod, along with my cousin clarence and experienced fisher(at least within my circle) dexter, we headed to various places to try it out.

My girlfriend Jean got in on the action to getting a fishing rod. However…

Till now, we haven’t got a single catch.


It so seems that fishing is a whole new world that revolves around, well, patient people.

That being said we’ll all never give up. And some day.. Just some day. i’ll catch something.

Till then, i’ll just cast off into the neighbours koi pond.
