How to Spend a Day at Lotte World Mall in Jamsil, Seoul

Lotte World Tower is, well, a super tall tower in Jamsil, Seoul. It has office units and residential apartments, hotel, etc. but it also has a shopping mall and department stores. I frequent Lotte World Mall as I live not too far from there. If you are going to visit Lotte World mall, consider visiting these places.

You can look up the exact locations of these establishments here.

Where to eat

Most of the restaurants are on 5th and 6th floor. You can just go up there and choose whichever one intrigues you! But these are the places I like to eat at.


Ganga is an Indian restaurant on 6th floor. Every one of their vegetable curry is delicious, and they serve good beverages.

Bills is on the first floor unlike other restaurants. The best way I can describe Bills is Sex and the City brunch, but they serve all day. I really like the food. It’s popular so the waiting is looong, but it is well worth the wait. I especially recommend it if you want that Instagram aesthetic brunch.

Vegan-friendly Healthy Food in Gangnam, Seoul: March Rabbit

March Rabbit is a salad place that has several locations in Korea. I went to one in Sinsa-dong in Gangnam area. They have several vegan-friendly dishes! I ordered Happy Vegan, which is a salad with tofu. I thought I was gonna be hungry after eating it but it was surprisingly filling. The veggies were fresh and the quinoa on the side was delicious. Tofu was very nice, too.


June Favorites 2018

June was a great month for me. I found lots of exciting new things. I started doing things that made me happy. So here are my June favorites.

Lush Solid Perfume Sikkim Girls

Lush Solid Perfume Sikkim Girls

Sikkim Girls is a warm and exotic floral scent with the veiled allure of jasmine. We capture the exotic heat of Darjeeling, India in clouds of tuberose and frangipani along with the overt sensuality of jasmine, creating a subtly seductive fragrance with a hint of ‘come hither’. If you love sensual, alluring floral fragrances, this is the one for you.

The scent is very smooth and deep and rich floral. It is heavier than light so I think it’s more suitable for fall than summer but I wear it now anyway because I love it very much. I prefer solid perfumes because I don’t like spraying things.

Aromatica Tinted Sunscreen

Aromatica Tinted Sun Cream SPF30/PA++

I don’t use it a primary sunscreen because I like to apply a lot of it and this is tinted so I can’t use too much. However I love having a good extra layer of protection that can double as foundation. It makes my face brighter without making my face look unnaturally light.

Yves Saint Laurent Verni A Levre #8

Yves Saint Laurent Glossy Stain

It is a bright orange color perfect for summer. Its texture is so jelly-like in a good way, not in a hair stuck to your lips kind of bad way.

Mala Xiang Guo

Mala xiang guo is mouth-numbingly spicy stir fry. It is so yummy and I am obsessed. I love spices but mala is on another level. It is very hot so it’s not for everyone and it is definitely an acquired taste but I’m hooked.

Ocean’s 8

Ocean's 8

I never thought I’d see Riri and Awkwafina in the same film. AND it has Anne Hathaway and Cate Blanchett AND Sarah Paulson in it? There is no way I wouldn’t love this movie. It kept me at the edge of my seat the whole time.

Price: 28,000 KRW

The bread was delicious and the tofu was cooked to perfection. The sauerkraut blends in perfectly with the rest of the ingredients and the vegetables were very fresh, and avocado completes the sandwich magnificently. The fries that came with it was perfectly fried too. I was very impressed.
