Photoblog: Pepero Day is coming on November Eleventh: 11/11

Be sure to buy your pepero! If you work at a public school, you’ll probably receive tons of these chocolate sticks. Keep the boxed ones from Lotte and give away the rest. (Size doesn’t matter on pepero day. Skinny is best). Want to learn more about Pepero Day look here^^

Oh, how did that get in there! Random shot of Garlic Pie^^
Fancy Pepero.
The classic Lotte Pepero. My favorite is the pretzel like one (the yellow box).

Photoblog: I Love My New Camera: Panasonic DMC-G2

I know, I should be writing about food, but I am just in love with my new camera! For years, I have only used Canon. I had a canon point and shoot and later graduated to the Powershot G9 before getting a Canon Rebel with a 35mm lens. The one thing that I always envied where the colors that Panasonic cameras could get. I finally decided to make the switch when the Panasonic DMC-G2 came out. This is what attracted me to this camera: the processor, the kit lens which was half decent, and the swiveling LCD screen. The main thing, I must admit was the ability to attach other lenses onto the body. I could easily get a lens adapter and add my beloved 35mm lens to the body and even get strange lenses like a CCTV lense with a 1.4 F stop. It’s a fun camera to play with and I recommend it. Here are some of my pictures.

OK2 Kitchen Revisited…Again and again and again

Sashimi Course at OK2 Kitchen Seoul, Korea

People ask me which restaurants do you go back to. Well, I go back to OK2 Kitchen- not because I like the place, but because I have to make sure that they are maintaining quality. I have to check out this restaurant over and over again because it’s a service that I provide to the public- I need to make sure that other people that go to the restaurant have the proper experience. The other night I went with my friend Suji because I wanted to make sure that her food was going to be as good as mine. Yeah…that’s why I have to keep going back to OK2 Kitchen^^
