We tried the Bibimbap and it was delicious. Another food crossed off the checklist. We also saw this Korean kid, probably around 3-4 years old. She was a bit noisy, bugging her mother with lots of questions until a point that the mother got so frustrated that she tapped her cheek to ask her keep quiet. Her cheek was so chubby and her reaction after that was so cute. Later we headed back to the hostel to check in. The room had some odour, like a room that has no ventilation. We open the windows and on the aircond for better ventilation. It also had a TV with many Korean channels (without subtitles of course). Our plan today was simple, just to visit Jeju Loveland. We took a taxi there and when we arrived it was already around 4.30pm. Oh ya, when we told the taxi driver "Jeju Loveland", he didn't understand. We tried to speak slowly but to no avail. Then when we showed him the map, he finally understood. "Ah~Jeju Lo-bu-lan-de!"
Jeju Loveland was full of erotic statues. It's quite unbelievable that a conservation country such as Korea has this kind of theme park. There were a couple of girls in their twenties behind us. We can tell that they were pretty excited. There were also many groups of elderly people, uncles and aunties in their 50s and 60s touring around the park. The aunties were so high they kept laughing loudly. We took lots of photos there, some with erotic poses which were not appropriate for public sharing. I guess that's the fun part of Jeju Loveland. If you go there just to take photos of statues, you might as well stay home and browse them through the internet. There was also a bicycle with a unique design. When an aunty rode it, we finally figured out it's function. She was very daring. There was also a sex toy museum in Jeju Loveland. There were male and female sex toys on display, so many varieties. Really made us 大开眼界.

After Jeju Loveland we wanted to find the Mysterious Road where cars or water bottle seem to roll uphill. It is located nearby Jeju Loveland but we couldn't find it. In the end we took a cab to have dinner. We showed the taxi driver the note that the Forest Hostel girl gave us, (recommendation of black pork restaurant) and the driver took us there. After we arrived, the driver offered us a day tour on the next day. He showed us the map and also the plan for the day tour. It was quite inviting as some of the places coincided with the places we wanted to visit. On top of that he also suggested a few more attractions along the way with a price of 120000KRW. Mely told us that day tour with a price of 100000-150000KRW is reasonable. We decided to get his number and call him later if we are interested. The restaurant we tried wasn't that extraordinary. We ordered the wrong dish, a cold pork elbow. It was so difficult to eat and we didn't really enjoy it. After the meal we decided to take the day tour. We called up the driver and the deal was done.
On our way back, we stopped by a Hallabong stall to buy Hallabong. It's like Mandarin Orange with a buldged head. We tried it at night and it tastes really good, very refreshing. When we got back to Forest Hostel, we explored around. We found that there was a fun fair going on near our hostel. And they have Tagada. I saw it in Crayonpop's video during their trip to Wolmido. We decided that we must give it a try. The next day will be exciting as we are taking the day tour. It will be a tour around the western part of Jeju island and there are so many attractions to visit. Plenty to look forward to!
