‘Tis the season of Korea reminding you how single and lonely you are.
THE HOLIDAYS ARE HERE!
Christmas isn’t a big deal on this side of the world, it’s another Valentine’s Day for couples to hold hands, take pictures with pretty lights, and have a quarrel by 8PM. You’re not in an official relationship in Korea until one of you storms off in rage in public. Sighhh, I love witnessing real life K-dramas.
It also doesn’t snow in Busan so it hardly feels like the festive season. But even when the weather does get below zero, I still order vanilla milkshakes (I can’t be the only one!) because how could you say no when it comes with a topping of caramel corn!
There have been a couple frigid days in the city, but that’s just a valid excuse to eat a copious amount of hot noodle soups. Whether it’s ramen, pho, or a kimchi jjigae, noodles are my ultimate comfort food.
My favourite kind of noods are the ones sold in the alley ways of Nampo. You just pop a squat with an ajumma and eat what they serve ya.
Below is my latest vlog where I take you holiday shopping with me in Busan! There are great gifts that are unique to the city and are made by local artists (postcards, mugs, jewelry, etc). Check it out!
Have a happy holiday season! Love ya long time!
