STREET FOOD KOREA: Black Rice Hotteok (흑미호떡)

We try some 흑미호떡 (Heuk-mi Hotteok), which is Black Rice Hotteok. Hotteok is sort of like a flattened pancake that is usually filled with cinnamon, honey, or other interesting types of fillings.
This hotteok was particularly cool because it wasn't deep fried, it was baked! Sometimes hotteok can be too greasy and hot, but the baked version is light, cool, and easy to eat. Because it wasn't deep fried, it was able to cool down fast, and not burn our mouths.
This street food vendor usually sells 2 types of hotteok, Black Rice (sometimes called purple rice) and Green Tea. Marie had asked for 1 of each and the lady just gave us 2 Black Rice. She didn't try to even correct our order by saying there's no Green Tea available.
Anyway, the Green Tea hotteok is only available in the winter.
It was 1,000 Won each, which is less than $1.00 USD.
If you are in Seoul and in Namdaemun Market, this is a cheap and light snack worth trying!!! ^^

Let's Talk About Ddeok!
Rice cakes are probably my favorite thing, EVER. In Korea, they come in all shapes and sizes. They're sweet or covered in hot sauce, served plain, or stuffed with goodness. They're amazing. In the photo above you can see long skinny ones, some shaped like figure 8s, and some stuffed with cheese! Rice cakes in Korea are called ddeok or 떡. (all photos are mine^^) This is chicken and ddeok in a cup! The chicken and ddeok and fried up in a sweet and spicy sauce. The outside of the ddeok is a little crispy but the inside is still super soft and chewy! This is dango! This is a more Japanese take on ddeok but you can still find it in Korea! Traditional Korean version of this is grilled ddeok. It's just a few pieces of rice cake on a stick and placed on a grill to make them crispy and warm. This is bingsu! An amaaaazing Korean dessert that comes in all different flavors. The more traditional flavors of bingsu like patbinsu (red bean) usually comes with ddeok on top! In this case, the ddeok is rolled in misugaru which is a powdered grain a lot of Koreans use in lattes or nutritional drinks :) This is ddeokbokki! The actual love of my life. Ddeokbokki is a ton of rice cakes thrown into some super spicy delicious sauce with fish cake, onion, and usually a hard boiled egg. You can get this as street food or in nearly any Korean restaurant you pop into :) Also, @carenabobo, here are the fish on a stick (also called oh-deng) that I think you were talking about^^ Ddeok is colorful, tasty, and nutritious! Never pass down an opportunity to munch on some^^
Kpop is Actually Born from Korean Protest Songs
Alright so I'm a total history nerd, I majored in East Asian Studies and eat stuff like this up. Read the full (long!) article here - I will try to explain it basically, but its really worth the read. Here we go: It all started with Japan. As you might know, Japan colonized Korea eventually trying to erase Korean culture all together on the peninsula. In the very beginning though, that wasn't the case. Japan was willing to share Korean and Japanese culture, and the Japanese and Korean elite often spoke together and traded pop culture. Japanese elite brought over Western-influenced music because of their connections with the Western world (which Korea didn't interact with other than missionaries at the time) The Korean elite wanted to be modern and successful like Japan, so they adopted this music (called Changga) as their new favorite genre. (You can hear a lot of European influences in early Korean music...) This is where it gets interesting. The Korean elite wanted to be independent of Japan. They wanted Korea to stand alone as a strong nation, not pushed around by China or Japan anymore. They stared the pro-independence movement. Now, most revolutions like this would turn to traditional music, traditional culture to strengthen the country (for example, Korea would use ancient Korean songs to protest the Japanese occupation) but the Korean elite didn't! They wanted Korea to be strong, and to be strong they felt like they needed to modernize - ie be like the West. They used this Changga music (ironically brought to them by Japan) to protest Japanese rule! To this day Korea is always trying to "keep up with" the Western world so that they can be considered modern and powerful. Most things that they do is to modernize and stay trendy because that is how the country has always defined strength. But then, Japan decided to make money off of that... Japan had seen its first real pop music hit in 1914. People were buying records, following tabloids, and really getting into pop culture. That was really the birth of the Japanese music industry. In 1926, Korea had a similar experience. A song called the "Death Song" appeared, sung by Yun Shim-Deok. The singer committed suicide with her lover right after the song was released and the story made HUGE headlines. It was chilling, 'romantic,' and dramatic. Korea ate it up. Japanese record companies came in and started selling the record, selling over 50,000 copies! (In 1926 that number is totally insane!) You can listen to the death song here: The record industry after that was run mainly by the Japanese yakuza and their partnered Korean gangsters. The industry was set up very similar to how it is now, with entertainment industries doing everything in-house (SM has specific song writers that only work for SM, and their artists are actors, singers, models, etc) This is also why so many Kpop artists become actors...because even back in the 1920s musicians couldn't make enough money so the real way to make a living was through acting. That still stands today. So, today's Kpop is based off of this first "Korean pop" hit (the death song) AND protest songs against Japan. So when people say that Kpop is just a copy of Western music, they're sort of right but not in the way that they're thinking. Yes, its a reflection of Western culture, but the reason behind it is that Korea has been fighting to be recognized as a modern, powerful force to be reckoned with since the early 1900s. They want people to know Korea is strong, modern, and a country to look up to, not look down upon. So the next time someone tells you Kpop is a lame copy of American pop - give them this little history lesson. Again, PLEASE read the full article - its so interesting! HERE it is!

Travel Guide 2022: Top 10 Best Things To Do In Halong Bay — Viet Nam
Halong Bay is one of the most famous places in Vietnam and consists of a series of impressive limestone islands that are on the UNESCO World Heritage List. There are around 2000 islands in the bay and many of them are with beautiful lush vegetation, making them ideal for walking. Many of the islands are also the home of caves. The best thing to do in Halong Bay is taking a cruise, where you can see these islands up close and take trips to caves and floating villages. 5 reasons to visit Halong Bay Take a fantastic cruise through the beautiful landscape. Do an adventurous activity such as kayaking or rock climbing. View the local life in the floating villages. Explore different islands with viewpoints and caves. Be romantic with a luxury cruise, spa and dining in a cave. 10 best things to do in Halong Bay The thousands of islands and floating villages already make an unforgettable experience, but there is more to see and do at Halong Bay. Most of these sights are included with the cruise that you book. Therefore, pay attention to which cruise you book. Below you can read the best things to do at Halong Bay. 1. Cruise through Halong Bay The best thing to do in Halong Bay is no surprise; a cruise. There are hundreds of boats, from very small to large, from luxury to cheap and from day boats to multi-day boats. So no matter what kind of traveler you are, there is always a cruise in Halong that suits you. The water in the bay is very calm, so you don’t have to worry about waves and getting seasick. You will also not get bored quickly, because there are many activities available during the boat trip. You can kayak, swim (in the right period), explore caves, visit floating villages and take walks on the larger islands. If you prefer to relax at the end of your active Vietnam vacation, you can simply stay on the cruise to admire the beautiful landscape of uninhabited islands and karstones jutting out of the water. Tip: With so many boats cruising the bay, it can be a bit overwhelming to find a cruise that suits you best. So take a look at the selections we have made of the best Halong Bay cruises divided into categories 2. Scenic flight over the bay The coolest way to see how magnificent this UNSECO sight is, is taking a scenic flight in Halong Bay. It is perfect for when you want to see the bay in a short time or when it fits your budget you can also combine it with a cruise. The flights last 25 minutes and start from the water in Halong Ciy by seaplane. Taking off from the water and landing alone is a great experience, but the real highlight is of course when you fly above the islands and rocks. It is possible to take pictures during the flight with a camera or mobile, so that you can capture this special experience. 3. Kayaking From a cruise you can admire the landscape perfectly, but with a kayak you can get to places that boats cannot reach. It is also a wonderful activity on the water, with little current and no waves. For that reason, kayaking is one of the best things to do in Halong Bay. There are caves that you can paddle through, ending up in a completely hidden part of the bay. You can also visit various beaches with a kayak. Almost all cruise boats, from day trips to multi-day trips, have included this activity in their travel program. If you don’t feel like it or it is raining, you can also choose to skip kayaking. 4. Floating fishing villages In Vietnam they love seafood. In order to meet the high demand for these sea delicacies, you will see fishing boats all along the coast. Because the water in Halong Bay is so still, this is also a place where floating fishing villages have sprung up. Here people literally live and work on the water. Many of the floating platformers are used for fish and shellfish farming. It is a unique experience to visit a floating village where you can see how the people work here and sometimes live for days. 5. Relax on beaches Despite the fact that Halong Bay consists of hundreds of islands off the coast, it is not a most popular beach destination in Vietnam. This is because many islands do not have a beach and the islands that do have a beach are often small and difficult to access. For this reason they can only be visited on a cruise. This makes a visit to one of the beaches in Halong Bay extra special. If you would like to visit beaches but do not depend on a cruise, it is best to travel to the island of Cat Ba. On this island you can stay and there are many beaches that you can visit on your own. 6. Explore Cat Ba Cat Ba is the largest island in Halong Bay and one of the few islands where you can also stay. The island has a beautiful wild national park where you can take walks, spot animals and enjoy beautiful viewpoints in the middle of the jungle. Other fun activities include cycling or scooter around the island, kayaking or just relaxing on the beach. If you want to see a little more of the bay, you can also take a day tour by boat from Cat Ba. 7. Visit Lan Ha Bay or Bai Tu Long Bay Almost everyone knows Halong Bay, but did you know that there are two other bays next to Halong. Lan Ha Bay and Bai Tu Long Bay are smaller than Halong Bay, but just as beautiful. But the best thing about these two Halong Bay alternatives is that far fewer boats come here and therefore fewer tourists. So you don’t have to be so afraid that you have to share a beach or cave with many other travelers. Because both bays are a bit further from Hanoi, you will be on the road longer. Furthermore, you will see similar landscapes and engage in similar activities such as visiting floating fishing villages, exploring caves and kayaking on your own. 8. Caves The islands of Halong Bay are made of the same rock as the landscape in Phong Nha, where you will find some of the most impressive and largest caves in the world. So there are also plenty of caves in Halong Bay. You can actually visit a number of these caves and there is often always one included in every cruise itinerary. Some caves are also beautifully lit with various colors. Another unique experience is dining in a cave. 9. Nice viewpoints From a boat trip you often have to look up to get a good view of the islands, but the best view is often from above. If you don’t have the time or budget to take a scenic flight, the best alternative is to visit a viewpoint higher up in the bay. The best viewpoints in Halong Bay are spread out. For example, you have Bai Tho Mountain near Halong City, Ti Top island in the middle of the bay and on the island of Cat Ba you even have several viewpoints that you can visit. 10. Rock climbing If you don’t mind putting in some effort to reach a viewpoint, go rock climbing in Halong Bay. Not only the view from above is worth it, but the entire climb is a great adventure. The rocks in the bay are perfect for climbers and it is possibly one of the best places in the world for climbing. There are also options for deep-water soloing.
