Chuseok is coming. This year it is September 21st to 23rd. I’ll be in Nova Scotia for a business conference there so I will miss how tranquil Seoul can be when everyone is out of the city. As Chuseok approaches, you’ll see more and more gift sets appearing for sale. The one that has always been my favorite (to see, not to receive) is the SPAM gift set. This year at E-mart, they are upping the premium-ness of SPAM and they are packaging this with Canola or grapeseed oil so Korean families can pan-fry their processed ham snacks with healthy oil. (It sounds a bit like having a diet coke with a big mac and supersized fries to me.) Anywho, be sure to give the gift of SPAM this holiday.
