I went on an emotional roller coaster ride for the past three weeks. A lot of things happened that I couldn't get myself to write. I was emotionally drained and psychologically tortured by a witch. Right now, I'm still in the process of recovering from the emotional exhaustion (more like of a trauma) I underwent. … Continue reading Back to Blogging and Chocolate Chips Cookies
Mr Kim and I love eating. If I were to summarize our marriage life it would be, asking each other “what would you like to eat” for hours every single day. We have probably been to almost all “맛집 / matjibs” (“delicious restaurants”) in Seoul, Daegu, Busan, Ansan, and elsewhere in Korea. Eating is our … Continue reading Yu Yuan. You are a star.

Seollal is the one of the most dreaded days of the DILs. Aside from endless domestic chores, we also have to listen to endless jansori (잔소리, nagging) from the in-laws. … Continue reading LNY and Applecakes
I love chicken, especially fried chicken. For those of you who don’t know, Korea is a chicken heaven. Their fried chicken game is on point! Compared to the Philippines where chicken is served with rice (and gravy baby!) as a complete meal, Koreans eat their fried chicken with beer. Hence the term “치맥 (chimaek)” (“chi” … Continue reading Wing it!
After my pandesal blunder (I tried baking it twice using another recipe but it was still not that successful), I decided to try baking cakes. The first cake I made was banana bread. It was really easy and it tasted exactly what I had in mind. You see, when I was still in the Philippines … Continue reading Start of my baking adventure II~
