Busan Biennale 2012

Art Gallery

Thesis finished (high five) I was been able to enjoy my weekend outside the confinements of my office. On Saturday I visited the Busan Museum of Modern Art to take in some contemporary Art at the Busan Biennale 2012.

Installation art was a popular form of expression at the museum, and why not, the three-storey building is huge. I had never seen the walls so full of art or the space so well utilized.  I loved the fantastically dramatic and eerie piece Deer Horns, but ignored the tragically obscure cords and wires in a pile on the floor exhibition (I’ll spare you the photograph).

Makgeolli’s Makeover – Wall Street Journal

We get all a flutter when we see makgeolli making the headlines, especially when it graces such publications as the Wall Street Journal!  This piece by Andrew Salmon in the Korea Realtime blog  made some really great points about the direction of makgeolli.  The trendy boom has died down somewhat, and makgeolli is now establishing itself as here to stay.  It’s popularity overseas, especially in Asian countries, is something that we are hearing more and more about.

 


Makgeolli Mamas & Papas: Connoisseurs of Makgeolli

Recently we had the good fortune of being interviewed by Jon Dunbar at Korea.net about MMPKorea.  He joined us at our Mowmow Itaewon meeting, and had a chance to see what Mamas & Papas is all about.  We are very excited to tell you that the article is now up on the Korea.net site, and we couldn’t be happier about it!

The article will be translated into 8 different languages, so we are very grateful for the awesome exposure, and we hope it reaches many existing and potential makgeolli lovers out there.

Thanks again Jon, and we hope to see you again at the Mamas & Papas makgeolli table!

Life..you are always changing.

First I have to apologize. I have been completely neglecting my blogging. Life has thrown us some interesting curve balls recently and I am just trying to keep my head on straight and get done the stuff that needs to be gettin a done.

10 years ago I thought I knew what my future held. (I was going to be a teacher)
5 years ago I thought something completely different. (I was going to be a rich sales woman)
3 years ago I had an epiphany and well changed my ideas for the future. (We was going to be expats and spend years all over the world in different countries)

Korean Injected Muscle Car

icon/ˈīˌkän/

 A person or thing regarded as a representative symbol of something: “this iron-jawed icon of American manhood”.
In terms of iconic esteem and revere, there are few people that live up to the status of an iconic automobile…in my opinion of course ;) Seriously….if on some idle Thursday I happened upon Tom Hanks and Oprah Winfrey walking hand in hand down my street directly in front of a parked Ferrari F40….theres a good chance that my complete disregard for them would seem quite rude as my attention would be rightfully placed on the Italian. Like people, iconic cars transcend generations….but unlike people, you don’t need to know that much about them to appreciate their beauty. Well, if we’re talking swimsuit models I suppose my entire point is shot.
