The end of the year has come (for me at least)! Students took their final exams for the semester and my co-workers, and I had a last dinner together to wind down. Usually, we call these kinds of meals a Hweshik (회식), which translates directly to 'outside dinner.' If you work in Korea, whether it is
This was the day before the World Food Festival. After we arrived in Seoul, it was about eight pm, and we were hungry as hell. So, my friend looked up some restaurants near the hostel and found an Italian place. Now, usually, pasta in Korea comes in two kinds, super thin white cream sauce and super
This weekend I went to Seoul with a friend to check out the Global Food Festival in Nurimasil. As a cook of ten years, this was a must visit for me. I came up with a friend Friday night, leaving work early to catch a bus. The next day, we joined another friend and went to the festival together.
I live in South Korea, right? But, as opposed to what most people would think, I live outside of Seoul, way outside. I live about four and half hours away from Seoul. So, when I want to meet friends up North, Airbnb is everything to me. I need to use it to have comfortable nights or just a c
Naju Image Theme Park (나주영상테마파크)
Yesterday was a holiday for the Jeollanamdo area, because of local voting, so I had the day off. For the day off, my friend and I visited the Image Theme Park. I have already been here once, it was one of my first post on this site, but my friend has not been here b
I am an avid Deadpool fan, and if you read the title of course you know, this is not going to be some kind of Deadpool 2 movie review. What this is going to be about is something Deadpool, Ryan Reynolds, and I all love, East Asia and Mexican food! However, the irony is that Mexican food is allusive

Here are some more photos from the Rose Festival that I went to a couple of weeks ago. In this post, I am going to outline the venture of going to the festival and what you can generall
Chosun University Rose Festival and EDM concert (조선대학교 장미 축제)
I didn't know this last weekend when I went to the rose festival, but there also held an EDM concert to close out the festival. I wasn't sure what to expect, the friend that shared the concert information with me is not really a music p
We have done it! We have made it over 250 followers! I keep setting milestones for each number of followers I want to make. First I set it at 50, then 100, now I have made it to 250. For me, those are some pretty big leaps because I have never been a big social media person.
Growing in the last two
Last weekend I went the green tea festival in Boseong, so yesterday I made a post about the food that I ate when I was there. I ate a lot, and you can see it all here 😋 Today, I am going to post all my other pictures involving the tea festival, so I hope you all enjoy them.
Boseong Green Tea Festiv
Last Sunday after the Sea Parting Festival we came to the Boseong Green Tea Festival. You can see my previous post in the link above, but this one was much better 😁 For this festival it was much more about the food for us. So that is what I am posting today.
Boseong Green Tea Festival (보성다향대축제)
I am just going to announce before I get into this post this will be a post about as salty as the sea itself. I usually have a lot of fun at festivals, and it is a great time, but this time, nothing went as it was supposed to. Weather conditions were not right, the tour we went on was not very profe
