UPDATE: Unfortunately, as of APRIL 25TH, 2013, YOOCHUN'S TIMEOUT GELATO has been closed. Guess who's back with another How to guide~ :D This time, it's a guide on How to…
Good morning! ^^ It’s almost 2AM and again, I have yet to go to bed. Haha. Slowly, body clock! I will get you back on track! Haha ^^
So a couple of nights ago, I was ~reminiscing~ about our 12-day Seoul trip last year. My sister Katie did a great job outlining what we did during the day in her scheduler, so we ended up browsing through it, and reading the accounts, recalling stuff that we did during our two weeks of stay in Seoul. We had two “Dong Bang Days”, the first one with Meli and Diane unnie-deul, and the last one with just the two of us, a day before our departure back to Manila.
I knowww I haven’t blogged about my trips at all, save maybe for an entry I posted about the Malaysia trip before my blog crashed, and then the quick entry about the JYJ Showcase in Malaysia that I wrote before I left for Bangkok in April. I promise to find time and write about those soon! But for now — I really want to blog about one of the places we went to a lot.
One of the shops Katie and I kept going back to was Timeout Gelato. It’s a gelato bar located in Apgujeong (very near Hyundae Department Store as well as Apgujeong-yeok) and is owned by none other than TVXQ’s Micky YooChun! This was our second stop for the first ~Dong Bang Day~. (First stop was Misarang Imsil Pizza, the restaurant owned by JunSu’s family). Timeout Gelato is where we kept going back to every other day of our trip, even if Hongdae, where our hostel was located, is a bit far from it. ^^’
I actually forgot to take a photo of the front of the store, because I was in too much of a hurry to get inside, and get my gelato. Haha. This was actually our second time going to Timeout. The first one was in 2009, during our trip to Seoul with our Mom. (I guess I’ll post a separate entry for that? If I do find photos… I lost so much when my white MacBook got stolen in late 2009 ;;)
We got in and settled to a table~ And then I quickly went to the counter to take photos. ROFL. GELATOOOOOOO AT LAST! Haha! It was Autumn that time, and these were the available flavors:
Pistacio Sicillia, Cherry Ripe, Mango Cream, Cookies and Cream, Pineapple Yogurt, Tim Tams, Melon Cream, Blueberry Cheese, Apricot Yogurt, Dark Chocolate,
… and I forgot the other 2 that got cut from this photo;

Random message from YooHwan (2007 06 14)
(NOTE: Unearthed from my old LJ… because erm a couple of years back I used to go on Cyworld a lot, checking hompy’s. Also since I got to friend YooHwan on MySpace and also had dongsaengs and unnies who knew about his CW account, I eventually learned about his hompy… Which I often commented on. No, we weren’t ilchons on Cyworld, but um he did send me a couple of Jjokji’s/PMs there. This is basically because he noticed my last name, which is same as Roscoe Umali’s, a rapper that he likes listening to.)
PM#01 from Park YooHwan: “I have a question. Are you related to Roscoe Umali�by any chance?” (Received in the wee hours of the morning)
– And because I was/is an honest kid back then (shit damn lah I think I forgot I was a noona…), I said that “yes we are related but I am not close to that side of the family”. Which was true…. Until I asked Dad about him OTL
So well, that was already done :)) Some of my friends said I should have told him that we have close family ties but nuuuu I’d rather be true lor. HAHA… but gah I wonder… HAHAH After replying… When I woke up, later that day…
