Yup, as promised (couple of times in my previous blog entry) I am going to blog about my latest trip to korea. This time, I went with Aiman + Miza + Lana and aAlim. A good experience for me while observing and experiencing some challenges travelling with a 2 1/2 years old toddler.
Shall I write according to date? Yes. Yes I shall.
20th Feb 2013. LCCT to Incheon Airport.
I went home from work as usual, at 5.30pm. Luckily that me and Alim already did the packing the night before. This time around, the packing part doesn't take that much time since we do not need to bring any rempah / daun limau purut / perencah nasi goreng adabi / brahim's packages etcetera for Mama. instead, we are bringing 2 sets of clothes per person and extra luggages. Because this time around, we are going to be bringin Mama's stuff back to Malaysia.
Mama sponsored all our flight tickets, and everything.
Aiman, Miza and Lana came around the house when maghrib was falling. Me and Alim solat maghrib and straight away ready to go to LCCT. Mamat was already at the house when I came back from work.
Some arrangements need to be made when arranging our luggages and Lana's pram in Mama's car. Then off we go to LCCT. We arrived there around 8.30pm but the check in and luggage drop counter was not opened yet. Since our flight was scheduled at 1.00am (29th Feb), the counter will only be opened at 10.00pm. So we went for our dinner first at the Oldtown White Coffee.
We didn't opt for Mc D. Not because of boycotting, by the food is no good.

Settled with check-in and luggage drop, we went for a drink then straight away going into the departure hall. Of course through Malaysia Kastam and security.

We've arrived at Incheon at about 7.30am local time. Well, the time difference is only 1 hour, they are ahead of us (Malaysia).

Then me and Mama went to look for taxi counter. Since we have a toddler with us, it was not convenience to travel back to Mama's house in Yongin by train and bus.
If we were to take the longer way, we need to travel by train from Incheon Airport to Seoul, which will take 1 hour. Then travel by bus from Seoul to Yongin, which will take 1 1/2 hours. It will cost about KRW6,000 = RM18 per person, which will cost RM108 for all of us. But we took a big van-taxi, which cost us KRW130,000 = RM390. They charged by meter + toll fare. It was door to door service and was convenient for us who has many luggages + a non-stop-moving toddler.
We arrived Yongin (HUSF = Hankuk Uni of Foreign Studies), Mama's house at around 11.30am. We were starving already. So we decided to shower and head straight out to Mohyeon for lunch.
