Some things I've learned in Korea...

1. When you discover the most delicious waffle in existence, you should return the following weekend and surrender once again to its extra-ordinariness. But wait to take a photo before eating it.

2. Being surrounded by cute things (hair accessories, clothes, jewelry, stationery (oh, the stationery!!!), pictures, advertisements, wallpaper, etc) greatly improves one's quality of life. I love cute things!!

3. Sweet potatoes can be eaten in a vast variety of ways (including cake and in pizza crust) but one thing remains the same - it is ALWAYS delicious and comforting.

4. You can never have too many coupon/stamp/points cards. Even as your wallet starts to buckle and break at the seams, there is no way you will ever give up even one of your cards - one day you will get that free coffee, and boy will you enjoy it!

5. There is such a thing as too much studying.

6. Eating rice everyday forms a nice secure foundation for one's life. No matter what happens, you can count on your rice.

7. Actually, it's not unusual to use a parasol in summertime. And then you can also pretend you're in a Jane Austen novel!

8. You should change your cell phone as often as possible, preferably upgrading to the latest, shiniest model. (This is one rule I cannot follow).

9. Eating out without having to pay extra taxes and tips is amazing and liberating.

10. There's never a bad time to eat ramyen.


  1. Sounds a lot like Japan ;) Also: those waffles=amazing

  2. I've been reading some of the posts I've missed, and I have to agree that waffles = amazing. Also, I wish that it was socially acceptable to use a parasol during the summer in America - I used one when I was in China for a summer and it was wonderful!!!!
