Note: This will be the one and only "fangirly" post this blog will post ... EVER!
Being a fangirl of
Park Yoochun for … I have lost count of how many years … it was without a doubt
that a trip to Time Out Gelato was not to be missed!
So on the very morning
of New Years Eve, I met up with LJ and SH at Apgujeong station. Believe me,
after reading directions on how to get to Time Out from the station; I had
expected it to not be particularly easy.
But let’s say this,
it’s SO EASY (and we were so lucky LJ turned around and saw the orange
shopfront or else we would have been super lost!). From Line 3 (the orange
line) you go to Apgujeong station, follow exit 5 and go up the escalators and
to your left you will see a side street ahead. That my dear friends, is where
you turn and up ahead of you on your left will be TIME OUT! You won't miss the orange-ness!
Settling inside, it
really wasn’t as big as I had envisioned it to be nor was it too in your face
with the amount of Yoochun and Yoohwan photos! But in saying that, I guess with
the photos I post of the little parlour would also give the impression that it
is a shrine of the two boys! But in all honesty, how else would a proud mother
express their feelings!? Not to forget the merchandise corner, which I did not snap a photo of!
Regular cup (two flavours) 4,600 won. Approx $4.60AUD
Snickers … hello ice
cream goodness!!! The subtle flavours of nuts in the chocolate ice cream was
just so mouth watering! Little bits of chunkier chocolate between the creamy
goodness were just a nice way to break it up. The dark chocolate was simply
delicious! It was not too sweet, just how I like it. Because we all know dark
chocolate is the healthiest chocolate to eat :P

Yes, with every
purchase you get your own little sticker of Yoochun’s latest photoshoot or
whatever he may be doing…. At the time … so when I went, he was obviously filming "Missing You".
Rumor has it; Time Out
Gelato is closing on 25th April 2013. So … if you are in Seoul during
that time, a trip may need to be made?Especially if you have fallen for the charms of Park Yoochun or Yoohwan
or maybe even mama Park!
Oh, we also tried to
go to Coffee Cojjee too! ... look at that insane queue! We opted
to skip it altogether ... unfortunately.
