Because of the recent rain there were a lot of worms that had come above ground. I found a huge one that was still alive so I picked it up. Hugh was absolutely disgusted so of course I chased after him with it. If he didn’t have such a strong reaction I wouldn’t do it to him! The cicadas are also out at the moment and very loud. I wanted to find a cicada shell or a live cicada just to freak Hugh out. Right after he scolded me for even mentioning that a group of boys rode past on their bikes. One of them shouted, “I want to eat a cicada!”
That’s way more weird than me just playing with worms and insects! I know people can eat crickets, but do people eat cicadas anywhere?
The cicadas in Korea sound slightly different to the ones in Australia. I think they are a higher pitch. I’ve often heard people say they find the ones here in Korea to be more irritating. They will still try to pee on you like the ones in Australia though.
I will continue to gross out Hugh with stuff though. He grew up in the countryside! He used to catch frogs and snakes and bugs when he was young! I don’t understand his aversion now. He just says, “It’s different now”. It’s been a long time since he has touched them, but for me it was somewhat recently that I was doing a zoo keeping course that sometimes involves insects, either as exhibits or food for other animals.
I wonder if that kid actually found a cicada to eat…

We are having a book signing this Saturday, the 15th of July, at the Kyobo book store at Times Square, Yeongdeungpo. It starts at 5pm. You will be able to purchase the ‘My Korean Husband’ book and get it signed by us! We will also have time afterwards to chat with people. This is the last time for a while we will be able to do a meet up because of my pregnancy and having a newborn baby later. Please come out and see us if you are in Seoul!
The book is in Korean but there are English translations of the comics.
This is a service Hugh uses a lot, so when they reached out to us to do a sponsored video we were happy to do it. Hugh uses this several times a week to ride around the neighbourhood but also if he has had a big night out and the subway has stopped running, and there are no taxis, it’s super convenient for him to just ride home. There are bike stations everywhere so there are a few very close to where we live.
In this video we also participated in the Seoul Bike Ride/Parade which is an annual event. We had never done it before but definitely want to do it again next year! We could only do some of it, due to me being pregnant and then also for the filming. It gives you a different view of Seoul that you usually only see some inside a car. With all the cars off the road there is the feeling of a much wider space and it’s easily to appreciate the buildings and the city in a different way. Hopefully we can do it again next year.

The Nicholalala webtoon on WEBTOONS is a fictional, weekly webtoon with elements of fantasy and Korean folklore.
Hugh is on quite a strict diet at the moment so I’ve been very conscious of not eating in front of him. In Australia, if I’m on a diet I don’t want to see other people eat nice food. However, he wants me to always eat in front of him! Not only him, but Yoojin his trainer who is also on this diet wants to watch me. They make me sit down on the sofa and they sit on the floor and watch every single mouthful. It’s a bit unnerving. They want me to make noise and tell them how delicious it is. Hugh also watches so many food programs at the moment. For me I couldn’t handle it if I was on a diet like that, but for him there is something satisfying about seeing others eat delicious food. It helps him with his diet somehow.
We’ve talked about why Koreans love mukbangs in this video. There are some historical and cultural reasons why mukbangs are so popular online and why Korean food programs are filmed in a certain way. I still feel bad eating in front of Hugh, especially when I’m eating something like creamy pasta and he only had chicken breast and vegetables, but he insists it’s okay. I didn’t finish all my pasta last night and he found the bowl and came into my office and demanded I finish it. I would have thrown up if I had one more bite unfortunately so I refused. I saw him eyeing the half of a scone that I left after breakfast this morning too. Silently and sometimes not so silently, judging me. He wants to see me eating so much food right now so he can feel the satisfaction somehow.
At least this diet is only for 1 month and then it’s back to the normal healthy, but not extreme diet. It’s just for getting his special profile photos done in celebration of his weight loss and transformation.
