New Year’s Party Puffs

When I first came to Korea, I was sad that I could no longer find things like popcorn and rice cakes. And by rice cakes I mean the puffed rice kind by Quaker, not Korean rice cake or duk. Little did I realize that actually Korea DOES have rice cakes. I just wasn’t looking in the right place.


They actually have an even bigger selection of puffed rice products- like these colourful balls I bought. You just don’t usually find them in a store.

Sorry, someone is sitting there!

A few weeks ago I went to the cinema in Jangsan, Haeundae. Practically everything I enjoy about the cinema was there. Movie posters, old and new, selling their films to a world ready to be taken out of the everyday world for a gifted moment or two. There was the almost tangible feeling of the alluring anticipation of seeing a film on the big screen. Then sitting in your seat just in time to catch the trailers of future films, designed to do nothing more than entice you back to the cinema. Finally, being lost (hopefully) in a world that the director is trying to portray. All parts of the cinema magic were to be found in that typical Korean cinema.
