The World Through #Tech Eyes

14 Jul

The #Tech world – always communicating behind glass, usually with filters distorting the view.  Looking each other face – to – face might help us see one another more clearly.

#koreanfood done right!  Seoul Train Station has a restaurant on 4th floor called ‘Korean Restaurant’ (inventive huh?! 😂).  It is SO GOOD!  #motherdearest ordered the #galbi stew and I ordered #Bulgogi.  All the side dishes came with.  Garlic, Leaf wraps, Kimchi, Radish, Soy Soup, etc.  #Yummy

“Stone Guardian from the Baekje Era”  –  I’m calling him Charley! He just looks so #happy!  He’s probably singing the song in his head 😜  He looks like he’d get along great with #Mushu the #dragon

The City that Survives

1 Jul


America is my country, but #Seoul is my hometown.  There is something so soothing to me about this city, with the topsy-turvy combination of new & sleek contrasted with old & meandering.  The moment I see my river begin to rise in the bus windows, my soul relaxes and I know it’s all ok.  To stand, looking out over a city as old as time.  Knowing that for centuries, one nation after another (often repeatedly) tried to stamp out its #culture and #Heritage only for Seoul to stay standing.  It’s a Beautiful feeling – Here for 14 days!

#KoreanBBQ

9 May

😂 Travel #Miscommunication – I asked a local importer if he could help me find #BBQ sauce, knowing that #HuntsBBQ is in a lot of places here.  He said ‘Sure!’  A couple days later, they told me my sauce was in and I came to find this – #KoreanBBQ sauce 😜 Also delicious! Just not what I was thinking.  One of the fun parts of travel – We have different views of food vocabulary 😄

Writing Hangul -ㄹ

1 Dec

“R / L” (ㄹ)
3 STROKES 

First – Start on the top left and make a long horizontal line. Then (WITHOUT PICKING UP YOUR PEN!) pull a short vertical line down.  Basically, you are forming the “Hangul G.” You see this a lot in Hangul, where on character is used to form another. g1

Second – Starting on the left, form a long horizontal line that connects to the first stroke.  You are kind of making a backwards, upside down  ㄷ. 🙂

Third. Starting on the top left of stroke two, go down forming a short vertical line. Then (WITHOUT PICKING UP YOUR PEN!) make a second long horizontal line.  Basically makes a Hangul “N”
