Day 4 - Dongdaemun Silk Hunting

After Namdaemun, we had a little extra time and the gals decided to help me go back to Dongdaemun to find silk, as it was one of my mom's order list.

The department for silks is this one right across the river, which we missed the 1st time we came.
An easier way to locate it is to take the subway line 4 to station Dongdaemun, take exit 9.
wallah....u will be here - - - >

Unfortunately, it is closed on Saturday.... ;( So, remember remember to plan ur trip well yeah!

There were a few shops open tho. So, we went in, but the cloth is not in the same measurement as in M'sia. The width is like half of the usual cloth we used for making baju kurung. So, i did not grab any. Sorry Mak. ;( Weird thing is, the other day, i went to Chowrasta in Penang, and one of the shop there sold the cloth which is from Korea. And it is 4 meters just right. I asked the lady where did she get the stock and she said it is from some factory.. hmmm...
