떡: Korea's Ultimate Comfort Food

I really love carbs.

So in Korean food, when 떡 (rice cake) is an ingredient you know I'm in heaven.

떡 - Rice Cake!

(ddeok)

It comes in all shapes, sizes, colors, flavours, and can be stuffed with yummy things or coated in toppings.

떡볶이 - Spicy fried rice cake

(ddeok-bokk-i)

This is 떡 cooked in a frying pan and covered in really spicy sauce with fish cake, hard boiled eggs, and other ingredients like onion or ramen noodles :)

떡국 - Rice cake soup

(ddeok-gook)

This is super comfort food and is rice cakes served in a broth with egg, onion, and usually meat on top! You can also get this with 만두 (dumplings) in the soup too.

찹쌀떡 - Sweet Rice Cake

(chap-ssal-ddeok)

This 떡 is covered in a sweet powder and is much chewier and sticker than the 떡 used in 떡볶이. They are in smaller, bite sized pieces.

궁합이 우리 우리 궁합이

Like rice cakes, like rice cakes

Chemistry, our chemistry

떡꼬치 - Grilled rice cakes

(ddeok-kko-chi)

Put on a stick and grilled over a fire, these 떡 can be savory or spicy and are nice and chewy. They are a common street food!

Which 떡 meal looks the best to you? Have you tried any?

Drama - A Historical Romance
If you love your historical romance novels and Kissasian Asian drama, you could already be keen on length drama; however, if this is not the case, then allow me to introduce to this charming form of leisure. Period Drama - Movies "I love you, continually have. I need to marry you," confesses William Wallace (Mel Gibson) to his sweetheart, Murron. Braveheart struck achievement, with its kilted madmen, demure heroines, Scottish royalty, unleashed savagery and the heart-wrenching subject of love and freedom. Story-tellers always have re-hashed memories of the past, and filmmakers are not any unique. Why would not they latch onto those suitable ready-made tales? Lives of royals inclusive of King Arthur, Henry VIII, Queen Elizabeth and Queen Victoria have just the right elements to set the display screen alight; controversy, love, loss of life, marriage, lust, opulence, poverty and tyranny. Period Drama - Series Adaptations of English Literature and the BBC move hand in hand. Classic novels; of which there has been a rich wide variety in the nineteenth century make for exciting viewing. Romance and social evaluations shape a winning combination. From the shy to the saucy, wicked to the brave, weird to the smart; there is a colourful kaleidoscope of excellent characters. Painted with meticulous care by way of such terrific authors like Jane Austen, Charles Dickens, Elizabeth Gaskell, the Bronte sisters, Daniel Defoe and William Thackeray; too many to mention! Getting to recognise these characters is a fun affair. Watching the naughty deeds of Moll Flanders and Becky Sharpe (Vanity Fair) is pretty mind-blowing. At the same time, in the different arena, of morality and desirable grace, sweet Molly Gibson (Wives and Daughters) and Esther Summerson (Bleak House) take the cake! Women with intelligence, wit and flair, dogged through the constraints of their intercourse but attempting their darndest to stay actual to themselves and make the excellent in their state of affairs. We cheer them along as we take an experience down memory lane; bonnets, petticoats, knickerbockers and the like. Rolling hills, tumbledown mansions, grandeur, poverty and urbanisation, are just the right medicinal drug for those craving their historic romance hit! Drama Is Comedy! "Humor helps us to suppose out of the box. The ordinary toddler laughs about four hundred instances in step with day, and the average adult laughs most uncomplicated 15 cases according to today. What occurred to the alternative 385 laughs? Anonymous Ever get sucked into speaking to someone who is a drama queen? They have the burden of the sector on their shoulders, not anything ever works out, and s-t usually happens to them? In discussing New Year's dreams, a pal these days advised me that one in every one of his thoughts for 2011 is to no longer be a drama magnet. I permit him to realize that that specialize in not having something is similar to having it. You will entice the very aspect you want much less of! You need to cognizance, especially on what you do want. E.G., you do not see awareness about dropping weight. Your recognition of reaching your ideal weight. You do not cognizance on no more extended drinking. Your knowledge of staying sober. There is a flip side to the whole thing. And you always have a desire which aspect you want to play. Are you tired of Asian drama? Flip it! What is on the turn facet of theatre? Comedy! Watching a traditional George Carlin set, or a Jim Carrey movie, or a Chris Rock special never fails to position the entirety in attitude for me. Something magical happens in our brains and our bodies while we giggle: endorphins are launched. Otherwise, anxiety and pressure collect and toxify your whole mechanism. No, our problems do now not disappear; however, we, without a doubt attain a healthy detachment and for this reason, a brisker attitude on them.If you love your historical romance novels and Kissasian Asian drama, you could already be keen on length drama; however, if this is not the case, then allow me to introduce to this charming form of leisure.

Korean Winter Street Foods
Korea is proud of its food, but it REALLY proud of its street food. There are different foods depending on the season, and I have to say that winter is the best. Here's a list of foods you MUST TRY if you get the chance: 군고구마 (kun go-gu-ma) 군 means "roasted" and 고구마 is Korean sweet potato. The potato is roasted in a huge barrel oven, then handed to you with the skin still on. It's your job to peel it and eat the sweet goodness inside. You can buy an entire bag if you want! 호떡 (ho-ddeok) 호떡 is sort of a pancake/donut combination. It is fried dough filled with cinnamon, sugar, and occasionally nuts. It is flattened into a pancake shape and handed to you in a tiny paper cup. Be careful with the first bite because the inside are often boiling hot! (There are also vegetable versions but the dessert version is much better in my opinion!) 군밤 (kun bam) We just learned that 군 means roasted and now we learn another word: 밤 means chestnut! Just like in New York where there are roasted nut stands everywhere around Christmas time, the cold weather brings out the roasted chestnut vendors. 계란빵 (kye-ran bbang) 계란 means egg while 빵 means bread so voila! Egg bread! The bread part is similar to corn bread, but a little less corn-y and the egg is steamed on top to make a really, really delicious combo. It's my favorite street food after 군고구마 :D 호두과자 (ho-du kwa-ja) The small of this is unnnnbelievable! 호두 means walnut and 과자 means cookie or snack. Therefore 호두과자 is a walnut cookie! They are shaped like walnuts and filled with sweet red bean. You can buy these by the bag full too! 회오리감자 (hwae-o-ri kam-ja) LOOK AT THESE THINGS! They are called 회오리감자 because 회오리 means tornado and 감자 means potato. Behold the potato tornado! I have NO idea how you eat these :) Have you guys tried any of these? Which are your favorite? @NysA @xanderskissme @AmbieB @Jiyongixoxo @BabySheep @phantomsluvr @Rhia @VixenViVi @JohnEvans @RobertMarsh @ElizabethT @ArmyofKookie @shantalcamara @KittyKpop @jannatd93 @cthulu @HarperKennett @musicundefined9 @DekaraMiller @Mahealani @kpoplove89 @tannyo @IMNII @kpopisnylife @KoreanLove2 @lawtont @baileykayleen @oceanseokjin @Sammie99522 @RoyallyPrincess @heidichiesa @asterkimchee @CurrySoop @malibella @puppycatX0X0 @notgucci3 @Lizzeh @reallychelsea @JorgeRAMME @adikiller @blazinpurplehl @kvnguyen @lupemontserrat @ParkMinRin13 @peytoncarter2 @aguileragissel @FallingByeol @adritha13 @toughcookie @TesneemElAlami @VWolf12XOXO @ToyaH @aleciaLOVES @no5alive @AnnahiZaragoza @TravelSizedGirl @kthyl @Adetoro @linzi0302 @hahabts @primodiva93 @cindystran @Saeda1320 @misssukyi @preeta @Yearnin2learn @DorisMay27 @iforisabelle @TLeahEdwards @robertakm64 @azaraa @JeanNwagbuo @aliahwhbmida @WiviDemol @ariana2k @sosoaloraine23 @hisundays @3mmY4 @sukkyongwanser @asterkimchee @misssukyi @MandySpaulding @LatoyaHudson @Claymorex @SaraHelguero @thatkdramalover @sierradimes @TokkiGwiyomi @AnelVega @KaiTakashima @UKissMeKevin @jemitza @VWolf12XOXO @HuonTreeRoo @lovebluecolor @kel53 @JezziCrypt @LysetteMartinez @Fleurdemai00 @oxSoZeroxo @k0reanbbyq @ceramoore3 @YessicaCardenas @Kuramariin @jannatd93 @herreravanessa9 @WiviDemol @VixenViVi @Roxy1903 @NiaLuv19 @kmayong @Baekyeol27 @9thMuse @Ilikepancakes @CandaceJordan @RobertMarsh @KiKi29 @Rhia @AnnahiZaragoza @YGWinner @EllieDean @LizaNightshade @panouvang123 @sherrysahar @mistymaity @GuerlyReyes @maralatto @shantalcamara @paszikelly @SerenaMcG @unbreakable1109 @Diablo6 @YessicaCardenas @Tigerlily84 @JorgeRAMME @Bose @AegyoBunny @VivianCrespoMed @Airess95 @SHINee808 @DaisySalazar @Pickles440 @BryAnnaAhrens @CloverShadows @JordanShuler @ChrystalA @Diajuni @minsangu @TatyTheTot @GraceWatson @NickySerban @Sinique @AnaMata7397 @nightcoreanimen @KarlythePanda66 @KellyOConnor @trashlord @hyolouxx @Sarahwifi @JayDay @nettaj1013 @Miyukichan @XergaB20 @pharmgirlerin @JasmineWilliams @toughcookie @warjeensuleiman @DasiaB @talimarks @ckienitz @KeyBoss @ChristiMarie @YokoUdoran @hayesfordaze @KagamiTaiga @malibella @ocherrylimeadeo @DjKpop12 @reyestiny93 @ZeeRow
6 Korean Olympians To Watch!
You know I can't WAIT for the Olympics so let's look at a few awesome Olympians representing South Korea :D PS: 올림픽 - oh-lim-pik! Ki Bo Bae - Archery A South Korean archer who was ranked the world’s number one archer in August 2015. She is the current World Championship and the defending Olympic champion in archery. An Chang Rim - Judo South Korea’s premier lightweight Judo champion and the nation’s representative in the 2016 summer olympics. He is currently ranked first in the world and seeded first in the Olympics. Kim Ji Yeon - Fencing A South Korean sabre fencer and the 2012 Olympic champion. Having started foil fencing at the age of 13, she is the first South Korean woman to win a gold medal in fencing in the Olympic games. Shin A Lam - Fencing A fencer whose 2012 duel sparked a huge controversy in the Olympic games after a timekeeping error gave her opponent a timing advantage. When South Korea immediately appealed the decision, Shin waited for over an hour on the duelling ground, in accordance to the fencing bylaws, while judges deliberated and eventually gave the win to Shin’s opponent. Son Yeon Jae - Rhythmic Gymnastics An individual rhythmic gymnast, dubbed the “National Fairy” of South Korea. She has won titles in the 2014 Asian Games, 2010 Asian Games, and 2014 World Championships. Calling it now: she's going to be the next Kim Yuna and have her face on EVERY advertisement lol! Park Tae Hwan - Swimming An Olympic swimmer who is the first South Korean to win an Olympic medal in swimming. He has competed and won medals in the 2008 and 2012 Summer Olympics, and is to compete once more in the upcoming 2016 games. Who else is PUUUUUMPED for the Olympics?!
