We will be in Seoul for Christmas! We are catching the bus to Seoul tomorrow. I’m really happy to have the chance to have a proper Christmas with friends.

Well at least he is optimistic!

Also check out our vlog from the weekend where he tries to kill me with ice (actually it looks worse on camera than it actually was). This is what happens when we are cooped up inside for too long and finally allowed out.

Christmas in Korea and Honeymoon 7

Something else that we didn’t mention in the video was that even though Christmas is viewed as a Christian holiday in many countries, there seems to be not much connection between it and actual Christianity in Korea, at least not to the extent that I’m used to. Even though many Koreans are Christians, I see a lack of nativity scenes and religious symbolism but instead lots and lots of Santa and Christmas tree stuff. I think in Western countries, even if you aren’t religious, you may go to church on Christmas with family because it’s tradition, but it doesn’t seem to be the thing here as it’s not as ingrained into the culture. Also the fact that it’s a couple holiday and not a family holiday seems to play a part in that. To me Christians seem very insular here and although they go to church on Christmas, it’s not the welcoming services for all that I see Western churches doing. I just doubled checked with Hugh and his response was like, “Why would anyone else go to church on Christmas??”

For me I think that’s one of the disappointing things about Christmas in Korea, besides from it being a couple thing, there isn’t that type of Christmas service that everyone feels they can go to.

Food Hard to Get 21

Food hard to get

Even though I know logically there are lots of food that are hard to get in Korea, especially if you live in the countryside, my brain seems to love dreaming about them. And for some reason I’m reveling in an avocado and sour cream shower… strange because I don’t always eat those foods together.

I’ve heard people say that their avocado experiences in Korea have always been disappointing so it’s one of the reasons why I don’t really try. In Australia I’d eat them almost every day, so I think chasing that past life may just make me homesick while trying to come to terms with a bad quality avocado.

However, sour cream is obtainable in Seoul so I may try to bring some of that back to the countryside.

But it seems that the longer I go without some of my favourite foods, the more ridiculous the dreams get. What ridiculous food dreams have you had?

Kiss Me Oppa

He refused to play along. Kissing in public is still pretty embarrassing for him, even though the younger generation is changing. Has anyone really experienced this kiss before? haha

The word Bae? 23

We made a silly video about the new slang word “Bae” in English and what Korean words are romanised as “Bae”.

Have you been confused about this? When I first started seeing it on Twitter I thought people were saying a Korean name…

I also made a comic about this:

BAE

Have you seen and heard people using the word “BAE”? Did it confuse you? Do you speak languages other than English and it means something else in your language? It is said slightly differently in Korean, but since mostly I see people using it online, it makes me think of Korean words.

AND we also have a drawing from Chloe! (Chloe is Daniel’s girlfriend and does awesome art here and here).

Arguing with a Korean Partner (and family communication) 0

In this Ask Us video we tackle some more serious questions! Two questions seem to pop up all the time so we answered as best we could. There are always way more things to say that don’t fit into a video and already this video was quite long.

As I mentioned in the video, we can’t reply to all the emails we get where people want relationship advice, but we can sometimes do videos like this where we discuss topics like this.

No Makeup 11

No makeup

Dumb game I play: to see if he will say I’m pretty when I make hideous faces.

 

He doesn’t…

I remember being young and people saying if you make faces, the wind will change and it your face will stay that way forever. Do you have a saying like that in your country?

Where do they live?

Just a quick comic today! We all say silly things like this sometimes. Check out Grace’s blog Texan in Tokyo!

I’m kinda worried that Hugh was getting some ideas on how to annoy me more after seeing what Ryosuke was doing in some of the comics… oh no.

And our latest vlog!

What a nice!…. The Beastro 3

Quick video about one of our favourite places to eat in Seoul. I can’t even explain how good the food is…. it’s just so good. If you are coming to Korea for a short trip you might just be interested in eating Korean food, and of course there is a lot of great food in Korea. However, you have been living in Korea for a while, you know how hard it can be to get good foreign food. Not only is foreign food so Koreanized, but it’s usually expensive. The Beastro is classy, but still down to earth and the prices are reasonable, especially since the food is amazing. For us, this type of American food is not even easy to get in Australia, so it’s an interesting experience for us.

It’s like a whole other world inside as well. The service is wonderful and so much attention to detail. It’s a real foreign restaurant and is like having a little vacation from Korea while there. Of course I love Korea and I love Korean food, but variety is the spice of life, as the say.

Fan Meet and Christmas Decorating 2

We had a last minute fan meet in Seoul on the weekend. They can be difficult to organise sometimes but this time there was the perfect amount of people and we had it at the You Are Here cafe. Thank you to everyone who came! It’s really nice to put some faces to screen names and everyone was so lovely!

I also filmed a tiny bit of Christmas decorating at Simon and Martina’s apartment (from Eat Your Kimchi) because we stay with them when we visit Seoul. From the video it seems we were just trying to put Christmas hats on Spudgy and Meemers…

I didn’t film the meeting with publishing company because that’s all boring stuff. But the book will be released soon! To see more of our Seoul trip, subscribe to our vlogging channel.
