Sorry for the long hiatus! I will try to update more and more as I get time. As many of you know, I run my own English Academy here in Seoul, so we’ve been busier than ever in January. A lot of people are interested in learning English from January! But more importantly, I’ve also been preparing my house as there is a little Jem on the way!

Officially it is a little girl!

Maybe on the blog as I find out about how to register for different things for international babies, I can share them with you so you have some information for the future. Also I need to get out there and enjoy some things before I’m homebound for a while lol! I’ll keep everyone updated! And I’ll try to get Alesia updating on here more!

Above is the current state of my house featuring our new crib!

모찌이야기 – Mochi Story in Hongdae

Do you love mochi? How about this little shop? ❤

Look at this cute little place! I’d like to tell you about Mochi Story, located between Hongdae and Sangsu stations. This is in an area next to another famous place, Ma Creme, which is also a favorite of mine. We had lunch and were looking for a quick snack.

Cute Japanese animation interior!

This guy was there – look at your choices so far… Tangerine Mochi or Kiwi Mochi!image

Being a couple. ❤

We settled on Grapefruit and Strawberry mochi. Strawberry IS THE BEST. NATURALLY. SO GOOD. I also like grapefruit as it is very juicy!!!

But nothing quite compares to strawberry, red bean, and mochi.

I also got blueberry which I enjoyed, but couldn’t compare to the others. I suppose because blueberries are less juicy. This little shop has changing choices every day, but the ones we saw were:

Tangerine Mochi, Kiwi Mochi, Strawberry Mochi, Grapefruit Mochi, Blueberry Mochi, Mango Mochi, and Peach Mochi.

Pretzel Pasta?

image

I got a set menu at a local pasta place in Ewha… couldn’t help but be surprised by this “pretzel pasta”. Is it good… is it bad?

Well sadly, because it’s chilling out in pasta, this pretzel was mushy. Though it looks nice, it tastes exactly like a mushy pretzel on pasta. Maybe not next time. xD

Pumpkin Party?

A bit late on this post but!

Alesia took a quick trip to the States to visit her family, and came back with a whole bunch of pumpkin goodies for me. I was so excited because well…pumpkin, but also that Bransen had never tried that flavor before! They have it in Hawai’i, but maybe it is not as popular as it is on the mainland. OH YES PUMPKIN POPTARTS! Also in Pascucci, I enjoyed a persimmon slushie. Nice match. Good times with friends.
