The event ended in the afternoon so we had a couple of hours to explore the city. I decided to visit Woodfield Mall, which is the biggest premium outlet in the area (apparently). My newly made Korean friend decided to join me since she had to do some shopping as well.
We took the free shuttle bus from the hotel to get to the mall. Once again, this transportation system had no announcements indicating which stop we are at currently. Are all public transportations like this? Lol.
We had our late lunch at the famous Cheesecake Factory. The food was good but the waiting time was just horrible for us especially because we were starving. It’s nice that they provide us bread for free service.
After our meal, we headed out and did a conquest for our bucket list. My friend got a sweater from Abercrombie for her boyfriend but was unable to get the new Airpods Pro since it was out of stock. I was grateful that they had a Fossil store in the mall and that I was able to get my hands on the smartwatch that I have been eyeing for a while.
We made Sephora as our last stop. Actually, I’ve been into one in Indonesia but I just never shopped there since the price looked ridiculous in our currency. The variety in this particular shop was wider and we spent a good one hour just looking at things.
We decided to go back to the hotel afterward since the mall closes at 6 PM. We ended our day then and said our goodbyes since both of us will be staying at separate hotels for another day before flying back home the day after. I told my friend that I am planning to go to Korea (one day) and she said she’ll gladly be my tour guide. Lol.
That ends my log for the Chicago trip!
