Did I mention Iâ€™m supposed to be on a budget? But no studio would be complete sans delicious Korean products and chili sauces!
In Danang, I had the best Korean roommate (Hye Jung/Sharon)for over a year and now that Iâ€™ve just left (weep 🙁 ) Iâ€™m realized how influential she wasâ€¦.Iâ€™m a heck of a lot cleaner now! And she cooked some pretty darn good food. We had a switcheroo/trade of cultures and cuisine going on in our household. I traded chicken wings, risotto, tacos, salads, and baked goods for homemade kimchi, seaweed soup, cute lil K-packets of fried rice mixtures, awesomely amazing candies, and a new and exciting experience.
Koreans are the Asians of my Vietnam experience so far (believe it or not). Through my roomie, I met my best bud Boram-shi whoâ€™s my K-grocery shop guide/chick flick pal/sport-o-holic (he has a ski fan club!)/eating partner/K-language teacher (today I learned sexy-hada) etc..Iâ€™ve also attended an all K-lang fitness class in a K-taekwando gym equipped with very sexy-hada K-instructor, Hyun Sung (BUFFED and easily the best bod in DN!), and watched K-movies and oohed and ahhed over more actors than ever in my life!
The K-drama = one of the best earthly pleasures!!!
Q: Why are Korean actors so hot?
A: I donâ€™t care but I like it 🙂 Ppl close to me say that it’s all fake and I kinda know it but also luv it. Now the guys’ names are hard to pronounce but I’ll post some pics to convince u 😉 = pure hotness!
I wonâ€™t gush on the blog but man, if you donâ€™t want K-tv (I love Ariang and KBS channels), you are missing out. I know, â€œAmerican Idolâ€ is pretty sweet but â€œMy Lovely Kim Sam Soonâ€ (on youtube hint, hint) kicks all other dramasâ€™ butts except,just maybe, â€œThe OCâ€â€¦? YOU DECIDE!
Opa Boram (big bro) and I stocked up on the K-food for my kitchen today. We got the fundamental K-chili paste (made w/plum juice says KBS tv), cutesy K-drinks, rice rolls that Boram has an awesome recipe for, udon (K-style), and well it all came to one heavy bag worth $35. But I still need my Soju (yummy K-liquor of choice), big bag of bestest candy ever; my K-lang book and dicto, and filtered mask to shield me from the motorbike traffic and you know whoâ€™s going to Seoul to hook me up? You got it: BORAM!
YES, me = one hooked up gal
–counting the blessings, one Korean at a time 🙂
