MY KOREAN STUFFS
I want to share my personal experiences here in South Korea. That, basically, is what I intend to do in this section of my website. I will use it as well as a venue to comment on issues related to this country. I wondered for so long what name should I assign for this section. Initially I thought of “Kimchi Chronicles” but I found out that existing is a TV show about Korean dishes with that title. So, I couldn’t use that anymore. Then finally I decided to settle with “My Korean Stuffs.”
This section is subdivided into four parts.
The articles I posted in the sections Korean Adventures, Korean Dishes I Tried, and Kimchied are all written in English. Kwentong Kimchi are narratives of my Korean adventures that are written in Filipino.
The sections “Korean Dishes/Foods I Tried” and “Gastronomic Chronicles” are related – they both contain articles that chronicles my gastronomic journey here in South Korea.
Someday, I hope to write a book about my Korean experiences and the things I have written in my essays here will grace the pages of that book.
My Korean adventure is an on-going journey and quite honestly I don’t like it to end yet… or to end at all. This country has become my second home. I love it here. I have a thousand more reasons to like this country that to not like it.
There are really lots of reasons why I fell in love with this country. You can decipher those reasons in the essays I posted (and will be posting) in this section.
Indeed, Korea is “the land of the morning calm.” She tamed me. She has calmed my spirit.
