There’s no way to sugar coat this, my school sucks. I have taken the name of the school out of my posts to protect the innocent but there’s no tap dancing around the subject. Everyday, it’s something else. I haven’t even been at my school for one full month but pretty much all the Hagwon… Continue reading Nothing says Happy Valentine’s Day like piping hot Mandu!
Tonight I worked on some quick and painless things for a friend who travels abroad a lot. Monica is one of my closest friends from college, a bridesmaid in my wedding and one of the most giving and open people I have ever met. She works at Winrock International, a nonprofit organization that works with… Continue reading Late night crafts…
I made a baby grocery bag for my friend’s daughter. The same little girl that I made the baby apron for. She can put all sorts of fake food and other goodies in it and haul it around the house. I used two cloth napkins from my thrifted stash. They are the perfect size for… Continue reading Baby Grocery Bag
This is the Pizza Etang takeout menu. Everyday when we arrive home from work there is a slew of takeout menus taped or magnetized to our apt. door. Some we keep, some we don’t. Pizza Etang was a keeper because some of their menu items were printed in English, always a plus. The phone conversation… Continue reading Pizza Etang
Saturday – Joe and I headed downtown to do a bit of shopping. We stumbled across some awesome signs for your amusement. First up, a little background info – from our kitchen window I can see a huge CNN sign in the distance. I often wondered why there was a large CNN affiliate in Songtan,… Continue reading CNN Korea
No pics today sorry… But I will provide you with a dose of Korean culture. I had spouse orientation today from 8:30 AM to 4:00 PM. And no, I did not win the “Who-Can-Put-Your-Gas-Mask-On-The-Fastest” contest. This is a class the military offers to spouses to “inform” us about all the goings on at our new… Continue reading Korean Culture 101
Yo-Yo barrettes for Carol’s Made For China endeavor over at Kidding Around. Check it out, she is sending gifts to orphanages in China. When I heard about it, I jumped on the chance to help her, I hold a special place in my heart for orphans because Joe and I would like to adopt down… Continue reading I heart Yo-Yos!
These are some of my kindergarten monkeys… This is Tom and Jerry, Tom is in front giving us the peace sign, which I’m not sure means peace in Korea and that’s Jerry in the background. This was as still as they would get for a photo today. At least I can keep their real names… Continue reading Kindergarten Monkeys
A baby apron ala Cheeky Mama at I Have To Say… Thanks for the inspiration, Randi. I made it for a friend’s daughter who just turned 2 last month. She has been really into fake food (the babe, not my friend) and playing in her new kiddie kitchen so I thought an apron would be… Continue reading Weekend WIPs
It’s been a pretty relaxing weekend here in the land of the morning calm. I went to dinner with Ally at Nolboo on Friday night. Nolboo is a very popular restaurant on the Shinjang-dong and is known for their Kalbi Jim or Korean beef short ribs. Most of the restaurants here cook the meat at… Continue reading Weekend
