Milo 12

Today’s comic is not from me, it’s from Chloe! I’m not well today so I didn’t go to Seoul, (but Mr Gwon did), so I didn’t make a comic. But Chloe made one about a KakaoTalk conversation we had. She was craving milo (a chocolate powder for milk from Australia) and I happened to have some milo so we joked about me giving her some in a back alley way like it’s drugs because there isn’t much of it in Korea.

For those that aren’t sure who Chloe is yet, she is Daniel’s girlfriend and lives in Korea. We often talk about the things we miss from Australia.

homesick

You can check out her art Instagram and Tumblr. Like Sophie, she is going to do the occasional comic for the blog. It’s kinda weird right? We all draw, we are all from the same region in Australia and we are all with Korean men. We are hoping we can do a big joint project in the future.

If you live in Korea, what do you get cravings for that is hard to get?

He was wearing his gross army jacket and underwear….

You know those mornings where there are no decent clothes to wear and you throw on anything?

Organise my phone 12

Organise my phone

Okay so I did do a comic today. My arm is a bit better and this was very quick to do. Clash of personalities! In some aspects of life I am organised but I really don’t care when it comes to my phone… or my laptop. I’m very unorganised and it drives him crazy sometimes. He took it upon himself to organise my phone (and clear a lot of crap off it because it was so slow) and so now it makes sense… but I’m still used to my really weird methods and now I can’t find anything.

Late night Les Misérables singing. Obviously I’m really good at remembering lyrics.

Wedgie 14

wedgie

Do you call it a wedgie in your country? When you yank someone’s underwear up? Apparently still can’t escape them in adult life.

This happened in yesterday’s vlog, but I filmed right after it happened, not when it happened.

Also the stolen video problem has been resolved. YouTube shut down that channel that was stealing videos from vloggers.

Nice Spelling 6

Nice Spelling

He has an email address like “Korai123″ that was his spelling of Korea back before he could speak English. Because he edits and exports the videos, he also names the files and there are many interesting names and spellings…

This might not seem that funny now but we were so tired when this happened and giggled for ages. The only requirement was to wake up…

Kpop Group Name 9

Kpop Group Name

Well he wouldn’t be the first to name a Kpop group after himself…. (I’m looking at you Jackie Chan), but he seems to think he would be in the group too!

I asked Sophie and Chloe what they think is a good name for a Kpop group but they only gave me rude names that I won’t repeat here…

What about you? What would you name a Kpop group? Which ones do you think are good names and which ones are terrible?

Pancakes 28

Pancakes

Does anyone else start dreaming about food when they move to another country and can’t eat their favourite foods? Now before someone starts to reply with “But you can get pancakes in-” Let me just stop you there and explain what I mean. I know you mean well but, as those that follow the vlogs know, my situation is pretty different to those who live in Seoul or even people who live in country areas but by themselves.

So why is it so hard for me to get western style pancakes? Well it’s just not a food that is eaten here much. I sometimes see people’s photos of eating brunch in Seoul at cafes and it seems like a world away. To even get the right ingredients is hard here, but that’s only one aspect of it. Our kitchen is very much a Korean kitchen, things you might take for granted in your kitchen – like measuring cups and wooden spoons – just aren’t here. There was not a knife and fork in this kitchen before I came, so currently we have a knife and fork for when I’m eating something western and we also have a bread knife. That’s it. One fork in this house.

Now the other aspect that makes things a little bit more difficult is that I’m living in a Korean family and my mother-in-law does the cooking. It’s rare that I’m even allowed to cook dinner. Now if I want to cook something for myself I need to fit it into the normal schedule without it affecting my appetite for dinner, because then I could end up offending by not eating much. This type of complexities is not something that other expats need to think about usually. I’m always very worried about offending my mother-in-law when I make something for myself to eat. She has accepted the fact that I will eat bread in the morning, though there has been a lot of worry about me getting sick because I’m not eating enough rice. It doesn’t matter how much my husband explains that rice actually MAKES me ill when I have too much of it, it’s a mindset that is difficult to change and it’s because she cares about me.

People like to suggest me places to go to in Seoul, which I am always grateful for, but most of the time we don’t have the time. When we do go to Seoul we are always very busy and not able to go to specific areas for food.

I have actually come up with a solution for the pancake dilemma though. I can get my mum in Australia to send me those shake pancake mixes that only need water. That way I don’t need a mixing bowl or anything and I can have some pancakes for breakfast without using much in the kitchen and it won’t affect other meals. Why didn’t I think of that earlier??

I really miss “Pancakes on the rocks” in Sydney and all this talk of pancakes has made me remember back in my childhood how Sunday nights were always pancakes nights.
