너 떡국 몇 그릇 먹었어?

맛있는 떡��

맛있는 떡국

‘How many bowls of rice-cake soup did you have?’ That’s the literal translation of how Koreans ask the age of another person (usually children). By Korean’s way of calculating, I ate 20 bowls of rice-cake soup as of today 😀

오늘은 제 생일이에요. ^^

Due to the fact that I don’t have 떡 or 미역 (seaweed) at home, I shall substitute with cheesecake instead 😀 It’s stupid to buy an entire cheesecake home to fatten myself, so I guess I will just get a slice to celebrate. Speaking of cheesecakes, I like the berry cheesecake in McCafe. It’s pretty decent, with a palatable price too. haha but i still lovee the cakes at bakerzin!

Thanks for all those birthday wishes, whether you happen to see the facebook notification or you really remembered, I appreciate all the well wishes 😀

Rewatching Meteor Garden 2 right now. Although it seems like Michelle Saram has alot more screen time than Shan Cai and that the storyline no longer follow Shan Cai & Dao Ming Si’s love life, I personally find the sequel more mature. I think it’s good that both of them could have some time to grow up, especially Ah Si. Anw, i really like Michelle’s character in the story (Ye Sha). She’s someone who’s always positive and finding meaning and joy in small things in life. I really admire her for it. Perhaps it’s because I’m someone who likes to think too much for my own good.

    Your post reminded me that Koreans eat rice cake soup everytime the lunar new year arrives. So this is how they count years of age too! 😆

      i guess if the question is directed to children, they can answer it that way since it’s cute and the number will be less than 10 xD
