What is Australian food?
What we actually eat in Australia is such a big variety and from all different countries so it’s hard to say what exactly Australian food is. There are very few foods invented in Australia because Australia, when referring to the start of European settlement (invasion), is very young. There hasn’t been enough time to really develop something specific and it’s a country of immigrants that brought their own amazing food.
There is one thing invented in Australia though, and I show Hugh in this video.
Since we are out in the countryside while in Australia we went to the local farmers markets. This is the first time our baby Yul has been to Aussie markets, though he has been to Korean markets many times. We like going to farmers markets to buy meat and produce because we can buy direct from farmers.
What does Hugh think of Australian houses?
Have you been watching the Olympics? I saw one swimming race that Australia won but besides from that I haven’t seen much. Hugh has been watching more than me.
Do you know the Korean name for your own country?
I put Megan Bowen to the test! How much Aussie slang can she guess? I tried to pick some sentences that would actually be used, rather than the old fashioned slang that slang books are filled with, but no one uses anymore.
Megan came all the way from Seoul to visit us in the countryside and we had a great time with her. So many of our Seoul friends say they will visit… but never do… hahaha. We appreciate her coming so far to see us.
We filmed some videos for her channel which will be coming later, and Hugh also tested her on Korean dialect, so that video will be up in the coming weeks.
What are some things we miss about Australia?
This video is a collab with The Drunken Bear YouTube channel, so check out their video here:
We love collaborating with other couples, especially Aussie/Korean couples. Rachel and Nick will appear in another video coming out soon too!
We filmed this last year with Sara (SeoulSarang) and have only just been able to edit it because we have SO many videos to edit. Slowly working through so many videos. This was a really fun chat! I really enjoy hanging out with other Aussies, especially after I haven’t seen any for a while. I think both of our Australian accents became stronger in this video (there are English captions on the video for those that need help understanding the accent).
This was very much just a casual conversation without much preparation, so it’s just our thoughts and feelings at this time. Opinions can change! Don’t take the video too seriously.
What ‘weird’ things have you done in your own country after living in another country?
