By 11:30 am, all three of us were good to go. But first, breakfast at the nearest E-mart. Well, brunch, actually.

There are so many things to see and do at the Petite France. For starters, the Marionette Performance, which started a few minutes after we arrived at the place. Yue enjoyed the performance a lot! Too bad we weren't able to get close to the marionettes because the Ampitheater was already filled with kids when arrived.

And if you're finally tired from all the walking, sight-seeing, and picture-taking, you can sit back and relax at the Outdoor Cafe or at the Petite Terrace.616-2 Gosung-Ri, Cheongpyeong-myeon, Gapyeong-Gun, Gyeonggi-do
Much as I would want to enjoy the view of the Cheongpyeongho Lake from the Petite Terrace, it was too damn cold outside. I reckon the temperature was around 6 or 7 degrees when we were there. Pretty cold for someone who grew up in the tropics!
We opted to stay indoors at the Maestro Gang Cafe where we had coffee and tteokbokki before heading to our next destination - Nami Island!
