Sushi Train 17

Sushi Train

He then felt bad about being so stingy so he ordered a big bento box and plate of tempura for us. This sushi place is really good and has a really big range.

Bento box

Kingyo Sushi

Full disclosure: Our friend works here which is one of the reasons why we went, but not the reason why we are mentioning it here. We have friends who work at sushi places all across Sydney but we wouldn’t promote where they work because they aren’t necessarily that good. There are a lot of just average sushi shops in Sydney. This place is really good though. Kingyo at Westfield Shopping Centre at Bondi Junction.

And of course it’s all Koreans working there as most sushi places are owned by Koreans.

Something to eat? 18

something to eat

We usually don’t have much in our fridge… but it’s important to always have kimchi! I’ve mentioned before how we share an apartment because rental prices are so high in Sydney and we live in an area close to the city. Unfortunately sharing has a lot of downsides and I don’t feel comfortable cooking a lot in the kitchen. Also we still live very much like students and there is a big supermarket right near us so we just buy things as we need them. That does mean that some days there isn’t much in the fridge.

Wrist Grab 41

Wrist Grab

Yes, the Korean guy wrist grab thing again. It doesn’t just happen in Korean dramas, it happens in real life too. It does annoy me a bit so I grabbed his wrist and dragged him to show him what it’s like but he thwarted me by claiming he likes it! He may be lying…

What do you think?

Rockpools at Night 17

Rockpools at Night

This was over Christmas when we stayed in a holiday house near the beach. Whenever we were walking on the beach my husband would ask, “Can we eat it?” for almost everything he saw. My family goes to the beach and enjoys swimming and relaxing, but my husband sees it as an opportunity to find food. His attempt at catching squid was unsuccessful because the ocean was too rough, but we did see others catch a lot a few days earlier, so maybe next time.

We had a really fun time looking in rock pools though, especially at night. The octopus freaked us out. Well, freaked me out. I have this half joking fear that giant octopuses will one day take over the world. This is why I don’t eat baby octopuses in Korean seafood hotpot because when octopuses take over the world I’m going to be like “I didn’t eat your babies! Don’t kill me!” All my friends know my theory and laugh at me. So I was a bit scared when my husband caught the octopus in the bucket. Which a bit out of character for me, I’m not scared of animals and I’m trained as a zoo keeper so I’ve handled plenty of animals. Octopus though…. they are just so smart. This octopus we caught was easily crawling out of the bucket, and when we put it back it changed it’s colour to match the rocks in the rockpool. Freaky.

My husband was sad he couldn’t eat it and we really had to force him to put it back. Even though I’ve explained that you can’t just take everything from the environment, sometimes he thinks with his stomach. We were also lucky that it wasn’t a Blue-ringed Octopus which are deadly.

Anyway, go watch some Youtube videos about octopus and see how smart they are.

Talking 12

Talking

We really love spending time together. We have our own friends and interests but we are happiest being together. However, there are times when we are apart. He has been back to Korea a few times and I sometimes go to my home town, so there have been times where we are separated. Usually just for a week or two, but I think the longest we were apart was 5 weeks. It’s just something you learn to deal with.

When we are apart we usually only talk on the phone for short amounts of time. We don’t have huge conversations because we are used to talking face to face and it’s just not the same. My husband will stumble over English and I don’t like talking on the phone that much in general. He is even worse at chatting online so we only do it for short amounts of time. So when we are not together we usually just have short check ins with each other once or twice a day and that’s it.

It means when we are together again we have so much to talk about and it can take hours to get through everything we want to say.

In a Drama 22

In a DramaThis is the music he was listening to:

He has been listening to this music a lot lately. Yesterday he told me about how when he listens to it with earphones in he feels like he is the main character in a Korean drama. He then showed me different dramas poses like in a Korean drama scene haha (which is why I drew it like that).

I told him that he is the main character in his own life at least haha. Listening to this type of piano music does make him feel better while he is working hard as it makes him think of the hard times that characters have to go through in dramas but then everything gets better in the end. It’s his motivation.

I love the emotional responses he has to things and that he is not ashamed to share it. Good communication is vital for a good relationship and even though we don’t have the same native language, he can express himself better than most native English speaking guys I’ve known.
