He is doing it again right now and still didn’t want a spoon. We are staying with friends but in their ‘granny flat’/studio so we don’t have a proper kitchen. I was offering to just go into the main house and get him a spoon but he doesn’t think it’s necessary.
It’s so bad it’s good! In a Boys over Flowers way. Of course my husband has no interest in this drama so I could enjoy it without his criticism while he was away.
I actually think the subplots are more interesting than the main plot and would like to see more of that. I won’t say too much else in case others are planning on watching it and haven’t yet.
Koreans say “Zombie” as “Jombie”.
Make sure you marry someone who still loves you on your worst days! Though I am possibly this sick because he opened lots of umbrellas inside! (Joking).
Spring colds are the worst! You know when you can’t speak because your throat is so sore? Or your nose is so runny all the can do is jam tissues up there to try and stop it? Ughhhhhh
This comic is actually a bit incorrect. In real life he’d be the one holding the shopping basket and everything because he has to show respect to his elders. He always carries things for my parents.
Anyway, he noticed some similarities to the way my mum shops and the way I do…. haha. If it wasn’t for him we wouldn’t be saving much money… My mum might spend her money easily but she also makes more money than us. My husband is much more like my father, always buying the cheapest stuff.
He wasn’t happy when he woke up to the sound of me taking a photo!
He often sleeps with his legs up in the air somehow, but his favourite sleeping position is his hands behind his head and his elbow in my face…
What about you guys? Do you sleep weirdly? I’m usually just a side sleeper.
Sushi places are almost always run by Koreans here. But when you enter, the employees always greet you in Japanese and then go right back to talking in Korean to each other.
My husband prefers me to order in these situations because even though he knows they are Korean and they probably know he is Korean, he feels he has to speak in English to them and it makes him feel awkward. It’s really different to Korean restaurants where they are expecting him to just speak in Korean.
My keys have keys for other things like the PO Box and the gym, and his keys are attached to his work badge, so sometimes he takes mine.
I don’t think I’m a horrible morning person, it’s just our mornings start at about 1 or 2pm and since it’s already afternoon people expect you to be functioning properly already. Give me some more time! I bet you can’t function as well as I can at 3am! Luckily my husband completely understands my dumb time until I’m ready for the day. It’s a little worrying when I’m replying to emails and comments in my dumb time though…
Speaking of tea, I do enjoy English Breakfast tea but mostly I drink Chai tea. Love it sooo much.
Today we have a guest post from Korea in my Kitchen!
I am Leslie from koreainmykitchen.com I went to Korea to teach English and came home with a husband! Fast forward 14 years, we now have four kids, a house in the ‘burbs of Vancouver, Canada and a dozen chickens. My blog covers all things Korean in our home, from recipes to culture with lots of pictures of our kids thrown in!
As a teacher, I often use these comic people to illustrate ideas and I have fun telling stories about our family in the same way. I love reading Nichola’s comics… they often remind me of when my yobo and I were first married! So Nichola and Hugh, my comics might give you a glance into your future!
Thank you Leslie!
Mr Gwon will definitely be telling our kids to use the pork. Even after speaking English for years it seems to be a reoccurring thing – the tricky F sound! And speaking of having no down time when you have kids – my friends with kids all urge me to have kids soon but at the same time say, “But you’ll have no time ever!” haha
It all started because the big Kit Kat blocks were really cheap at the supermarket. Now every time I’m making a shopping list he says, “Kit Kat!” I refuse to buy them now.
He really likes the white chocolate or caramel Kit Kats. Does your country have unique Kit Kat flavours? I had wasabi flavour in Japan.
I also realised that Nestle makes Kit Kats everywhere in the world except the US where it’s Hersheys. That’s weird to me because Hersheys has such a different taste.
I actually changed the pacing of this one because he really wanted to be a zombie at the end.
We’ve been having some bad bushfires in Australia (I hope anyone near them is okay!) so there has been a lot of smoke over Sydney. It was pretty creepy looking at night, especially with the full moon.
So he can be really lazy putting lids back on kimchi properly and doesn’t care about there being a strong kimchi smell, but suddenly he doesn’t like there being a strong cheese smell! The couple we are living with bought some fancy cheeses (if you guys are reading this, don’t worry! I don’t mind the cheese smell and it’s funny to see him react to it) and he complains every time he opens the fridge.
Anyone who has lived with Koreans probably knows that eye-watering kimchi smell every time they open the fridge. I don’t mind a bit of a smell but sometimes it can be too much. Is that why there are special kimchi fridges in Korea?
The reason is comic is up late is because I’ve had some problems with my tablet (Bamboo manga pen and touch) and the program I use Opencanvas. A driver was updated I think and since then I can’t scroll using the tablet, it zooms instead. It’s not a massive problem but it’s annoying and makes drawing harder… and it shouldn’t happen! With another program there doesn’t seem to be a problem but with opencanvas and opencanvas lite it’s doing it. I’m not sure if it’s the program or the tablet or both causing it. My tablet is getting old. We tried for hours searching for a solution but couldn’t find much and nothing worked. If you know how to fix this please tell me!
