I’ve always been fascinated with oriental medicine. Using herbal medicines and natural healing to stay healthy just seems like the right way to live.  Growing up in a Western culture, where I am thankful to have highly developed scientific advancement of modern medicine, unfortunately I did not have a lot of exposure to natural curses and practices of oriental medicine.


Korean Ginseng ~ KoreaTaste Gift

Hi everyone!,

As some of you already know, I'm a huge fan of Korean Food, I love eating it and cooking it, and KoreaTaste started their blogging contest on february, which was entered by default since I was already a member of the site, this only encourage me to blog more about food!

Last month the winners were announced and I got 3rd place (YAY!), and also got selected as a winner for being a "new" member, 2 weeks ago I received an email regarding my gift being sent and this Thursday I got a huge package on the mail!

And now, for something completely different...



As further proof that you never know everything that's going on, I present to you a few pictures from a Ginseng Festival in downtown Seoul. Held last weekend, the Lady in Red and I wandered around the Cheonggyecheon area and came across it.



Prices ranged from 40,000 per kilogram on up - way up. Koreans take this stuff seriously, that's for certain
