I Tried My Best

I made tteokbokki out of rice cake and hot sauce I bought from a korean store. I have to do this again, but should consider putting sesame seed and onion next time. Wiiihooo! This streetfood is sooo sticky that I have to stir it from time to time.

Did anyone try korean ice cream? tsarap! You should try..

Side Dishes

April 20, 2010 – Daejeon, South Korea

It’s 2am and we had not eaten our dinner yet. We ordered our first meal in a laid-back eatery.

I was adjusting myself to the new language I heard from the television when a lady knelt at the corner of our low-leveled dining table. I was overwhelmed with the number of bowls she was putting on the table.

Korean table setting is also named as Ban-sang setting and it is composed of a rice bowl alongside with side dishes. Table setting depends on whether a noodle dish or meat is to be served.   It is also determined by the number of side dishes and there are 3, 5, 7, 9, 12 side dishes that can be served. We had 3 side dishes.

As customary, side dishes are shared among diners but rice and soup are served individually.  Koreans, unlike other chopsticks citizens, use spoon more often. They eat rice with spoon while chopsticks are used for side dishes.

Oh, There You Are!

Colored Pens

I love how it looks like when colors are put together. It’s like a rainbow.

In this hostel, a visitor can leave message to June, the Forjuneteller/Host, by writing on a message wall using these colorful pens.
