Mallangkao is the name of this candy which I just happen to love. For those who don’t know Korean, mallang = soft and kao = cow (in the English Korean form, so to say). And that’s all for today, the day before the new year!
The sign outside this coffee shop said that if you take a selfie with this haunted looking bear, you’d get 10% off from their coffee. What a great idea! … except for the fact that he looks as if he ate a child (or two). Don’t stare too long into his eyes!
So I bought myself a new phone, a Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge, and I thought that there would be lots of cute cases to buy here in Korea but oh was I wrong. When I arrived back to Korea, I found out that this model wasn’t even launched yet here? Anyway, I found this super cute liquid case back home in Korea and my parents were kind enough to mail it to me here! Isn’t it cute? 😃
Ever seen a dog that barks like a human? As if wasn’t a real dog, but just a human barking as if s/he was pretending to be a dog, you know? You know? Well, today I was in the neighbourhood and kind of experienced it…
Today was probably the first time ever I’ve tried “climbing” one of the many mountains they have here in Korea. I mean, for real. And, for some reason, it seems to be more of a thing that eldery Koreans do because you see colourful wearing tiny grannies and grandpas pop up everywhere when you least suspect it! Some of them have a radio hanging on them, blasting music for everyone to hear whether they like it or not. And they are fast. They will walk up the mountain without any problems, past me, in no time. I was absolutely impressed! This is something that my own country’s elderies should do as well! Back in Skåne (South of Sweden) we don’t really have any mountains but we have lots of nature to walk around in…
Anyway, the mountain we climbed is called Yongmasan and is 348 meters high. My boyfriend wanted to point out that it’s not really a mountain, but a big hill. But whatever.
In the beginning we saw some stray (?) but healthy looking cats, and I love cats. Of course, my boyfriend does not. He says they’re dirty but then again he’s never had a cat and he’s probably basing his opinions of many of the dirty stray cats in Seoul… Any animal that is stray/wild will be dirty, right! Even so, I believe that cats are more clean than dogs.
