Tteokbokki (떡볶이) is delicious, and of course, I love it with a side of sundae (순대). I won’t miss either one of these dishes upon leaving Korea, as I know where to get both in SW Portland.

By the way, School Food (스쿨푸드) is sub par. Just eat this stuff on the street; that really is the best.

Last month I was supposed to take a cruise on the pirate ship, Nurimaru. It takes about 120 minutes and sails to Oryuk Islets and Gwangan Bridge, among other areas. For 19,500₩, it sounds like an awesome idea, right?

Except I was too damn lazy to make it to the station in time to find the boat. I did make it to Gwangan bridge in time to see the boat cruise by though. Life is funny that way. Look at my awesome hot pink sweatpants and lounge wear. Obviously, I am ready to feed my face.

I really enjoy eating breakfast with the kiddos. I can’t believe I’m only going to do it 14 more times. Only 14 more days of repeating, “No talking,” “Eat fast,” “It’s delicious,” “Nom nom,” and “Hoo Hoo.” “Hoo Hoo” is what I say when the food is hot and I want them to blow on it (often rice porridge or chicken gravy).

I like mandoo days when half of them want to give me a dumpling each, so I end up eating something like eight mandoo when I am supposed to have the child-size portion of three.

I will not miss when the kids drink their milk too fast and vomit afterward. Has only happened three times (Lucy, Jacob and Ruby), but wow, it’s tough to get the kids to finish their breakfast when you’re cleaning up vomit. “It’s okay, finish your food… even if I can’t…”

Know this was a month ago, but celebrated Cinco de Mayo with a walk around Igidae (이기대) and margaritas at Thursday Party. Also, saw a bunch of cute couple sets around the park, which is always epic.

Busan makes me love baseball. The kimbop, the cheap Korean beer, and happy fans make it all worth it. Sadly, the weather is a pain. It’s either blisteringly cold (wind), raining, or really hot and humid. Huuuurrrrrr!

Where can I purchase my own couple set outfit? And can I buy a cute matching kid, as well?

So, I’m going to recreate this photo within the next five years, with these cute teal and black outfits.

I still have not eaten a waffle in this country. I’ve had plenty of overpriced (5300₩) iced lattes. I think a waffle is in order this weekend.
