Asan Folk Festival 2013!!

This time of year is always a busy season for Makgeolli, and we are only now getting the time to collect ourselves and reflect on the past few months.  Back in October we had the annual Asan Folk Village Festival weekend.  MMPK teamed up with the always awesome Susubori Academy, along with their expat brewing instructors Becca Baldwin and Dan Lenaghan, to offer a weekend of open air makgeolli classes.


Free Makgeolli Making Class at Asan Folk Festival!!

It’s here again!  Last year we teamed up with Susubori Academy to host free makgeolli making classes at the Asan Folk Village as part of their annual festival.  It was a truly excellent time, and we had so much fun brewing makgeolli in the outdoors and enjoying each other’s company.  And this year it’s happening again!


HBC Fest – Rock n’ Roll (and some folk) Photos

Here are some more pics from May’s HBC Fest, this time I’m keeping all things musical this time and focusing purely on the live acts. I have a few more pictures of the crowd’s antics to post but I’m going to give the people who make the Fest worth going to some credit – in fairness it wouldn’t be much of a music festival without much music, right?

These photos are going to start from the beginning, around 1 or 2 in the afternoon. I didn’t get to see everyone, but everyone I did see did get a photo included. I decided to go with a slideshow this time.

Enjoy!

By-the-by, let me know what you think of how this was presented – did the slideshow work? I have other options for displaying photos that I’m currently exploring. I want to avoid the big long post of photos I’ve been doing in the past.


HBC Fest – A grainy and blurred photographic reflection

Yesterday was, of course, the HBC Fest. It was very colourful, especially if you consider the busfuls of cops that turned up to help us out with crowd control. It’s good to see that our taxes are eventually getting their money’s worth, especially when it comes to the 5-O. Anyway, I’m sure that the prominence of the cops has well advertised on the Korean blogosphere. This suits this post perfectly as I don’t intend on sharing any pictures of the cops – although I did see one great picture of some guy standing in and helping out the cops as crowd control which was hilarious… Anyway more about the cops later…


The IMF Comes to Yeongtong!

Roll up! Roll up! The IMF is coming to Yeongtong-dong in Suwon!

Don’t all run for your bank books just yet – it’s the International Music Festival, not the International Monetary Fund :D

Myself and herself, or I should say herself, has taken over the running of Sansudawon, a traditional Korean tea café in Yeongtong in Suwon. We are currently in the process of changing a few things. Most important of these changes are some new introductions to the menu, like curries, sandwiches, soups, and wine – including Irish wine a.k.a. Guinness.
