Who am I?

Who am I?

Well, I’m just your average 24-year old Canadian teaching English in Korea, finding my way through food, fitness and a foreign culture. Trying to figure out what I’m meant to do, what I have to share and how I want to live a life of fulfillment. Originally,  I dreamed that photography would be my goal, and so I pursued art school, and graduated with a BFA, Major in Photography from the Emily Carr University of Art+Design in Vancouver, BC. Upon completion of my school in 2010, I set out with hope and passion, excited to begin my new career as an aspiring photographer.


If I Build It, Will They Come?

Hello, KoreaBridge!

     I'm doing a bit of market research to see if there's enough interest to start a vitamins, minerals, supplements, herbs, sports nutrition, diet, energy, health, and beauty products business in Busan that could also ship to anywhere in South Korea.  

 

     I see lots of healthy, active people when I'm out and about.  If you're anything like me, you want to improve your daily nutrition, maximize your energy, and be reasonably healthy.  Perhaps you're also like me and you've had a really difficult time finding worthwhile products here in Korea.  It seems there are two options:

     1) you buy things from the U.S. or your respective country of choice and wait a long time and pay duty fees, or

     2) you ask a Korean friend to help you order products on webpages that are all in Korean.  


some pretty fly house guests…..

When you live the sort of high profile rockstar diva life that Nicole and I do, its not uncommon to find yourself swarmed with a variety of types that just wanna breathe the same air as you. I know, disgusting. However, being the friendly sorts we are, we’ve welcomed a few of them into our home without a proper invite and instead of making an awkward scene, I’ve spent a little time recently getting to know a few of them.

ColdStone busts your diet, jinja?!

(Jinja means really in Korean)

This morning I will have you know, I forcefully made myself head down to the high school track below my window. (I stare at it every day but never move from my rear in front of the computer)

I ran and walked the track. I did an ab workout, a few yoga poses and did my headstand in the middle of the field. It was fun. It felt good.

Then, I came inside and made my daily Green slush (I don’t have a juicer, so I blend everything… a green apple, a cucumber, a slice of peach, some ginger and bok choy)


A battle with being an Expat

Fact: when you’re chasing everything you’ve ever wanted, at some point, you’re going to have to leave home and the people and things you love dearly. (I copied this statement)

Adam and I don’t normally write blogs about our “feelings” especially when we are missing things. We try to focus on the positive when we are away because we don’t want our family back home to read our blogs and then feel sad. We want them to see the good, exciting and amazing things that living as expats brings to our lives.


Nuclear Free World Festival Busan 2012

March 11th marked 1 year since the Fukushima Nuclear Power Plant Tragedy.  As a sign of support and camaraderie with the Japanese people who are still rebuilding their lives, the people of Busan took to the streets on Saturday to protest the use of nuclear energy on their shores.

Juice Fast Day 4

Juice Fast Day 4

Kitchen machines are attractive. Their shiny exterior, compact nature and creative niches. By inserting a few ingredients and flicking a button, the machine comes to life with a whirl and gargle creating magic in moments. No wonder I became so excited by my new juicer.

My juicer is a centrifugal juice extractor

The motor can run anywhere between 3000RPM to 7000RPM, making centrifugal juicers the fastest of all the juicers in juice kingdom. It’s like having a drill in the kitchen. I love mine because not a single part of the jug comes into contact with the engine, or is able to dribble into it. It’s a superb design. Even the little cleaning brush fits perfectly into the spout. Bonus: It’s also easy to clean.


Juice Fast Day 2

Juice Fast Day 2

I’m actually feeling pretty good. No dizziness, no exhaustion and no body odor – that I’m aware of.

I slept well last night. For a mere 7 hours, whereas I would normally sleep for at least 8. As I wasn’t tired, I continued to play peek-a-boo with Mungmi (sweet shitzu) into the wee hours. Perhaps I was so energized because I exercised at 6pm, but running that late is not unusual. In fact, I had sufficient energy to run 9kms,  a decent distance, and felt rather invigorated afterwards.

Bathroom visit have been frequent,  but of one kind and not the other. Not surprising as I’ve digested little fiber. I have been drinking juice every two hours or so, supplemented by Rooibos tea (highly recommended) and lots of water.
