Korean Drama Wisdom Meme

Ok, I am getting the summer time lulls and right now I want to do something a bit more fun. Here are some memes that I have made up for something I call Korean Drama Wisdom. You can follow it on my tumblr page: http://koreandramawisdom.tumblr.com/

I post them if I see something funny while watching dramas.

Ok, get on with your lives. Share if you’d like. By-the-way, I am taking a vacation for a couple of days. I need to recharge the batteries. Food posts will be forthcoming soon. I am looking for an editor to help me get some of the posts out faster. If you are interested, let me know. Payment will be in good food and experience.

Blast from the Past: Korea in 2007

I was going through some pictures on my computer and it is pleasant reminiscing about my early days in Seoul. In 2006, I moved to Seoul from Gyeong ju and I was an English teacher at an elementary school and later a teacher at a writing academy. Although I enjoyed teaching immensely, I was always drawn to food.

At my home, I would host dinner parties and later I started to blog about food. I had no idea then that it would lead me into a career in food.

There are still many things I want to do and I there are big things, I would like to do.

Here are some pictures from my early “foodie” days. I would like to thank all my friends along the day and I would like to make a toast to a delicious future.

Happy Eating,

A Walking Martini


It’s a day of snow in Seoul.
One of many I don’t know.
It came late last night and blanketed the walks.
It awaited us in the morning as we woke.
One cup of coffee to get going.
A hot shower for strength.
I layered myself for the impending freeze.
I wish I had more practical shoes.
Walking in the snow in sneakers is like balancing a tray of martinis.
The glass designed for elegance
and to maintain micro crystals of ice isn’t too practical
I imagine I will tumble my contents on the icy walk, splitting my head and sending splinters of pain into my backside.
I walk flatfooted.
I walk without friction.
I walk while counterbalancing the slosh of ice.
I ignore the buzz of my phone and walk like a server carrying a tray of martinis to guests- fearing ridicule.
