While many in Seoul probably have weekend plans, I have nothing much in mind. I can’t believe I’m having a breakout in Korea D: Must be the high stress and the Singapore-like humidity these days.
This post is going to be full of rubbish. You can stop reading right now.
Don’t feel like going outside. The weather forecast says its likely rain today but it has been saying that for days and the rain just keeps getting pushed back. O.o so apparently the ‘thunderstorm’ will be on Sunday, instead of Friday as originally promised. Alrights.. Can you hold it off for a couple of weeks more?
If it doesn’t rain, I might drag myself out to Kyobo just to relax a bit and read nonsense. I have been eating rubbish for the past few meals D: For once, I appreciate how easy it is to get takeaway food in Singapore. Food courts, hawker centers, high end restaurants – you can order takeaway from almost every place.
In Korea, I feel weird going into a restaurant and ordering takeaway. Especially all those hot stews etc. -.- The only place I can safely order from is 분식집 or like those Japanese places or dosiraks. I used to be very very happy about how they pack everything really nicely when you order takeaway. The main meal, sides of kimchi, radish, soup, salad, sauce – everything packed nicely in either containers or wrapped nicely (and too many layers) with clear plastic.
In contrast to Singapore, where we usually just get something very simple. Like a plastic container. You get what I mean. On the rare occasion, you get soup. But if you order chicken rice or something, it can just be a small packet.
WHICH MAKES CLEARING OUT EVERYTHING EASIER.
Nowadays I dread ordering delivery / takeout because I have to think of the rubbish I end up with. All the containers, wasted food (I don’t eat a lot of the side dishes) etc. I’m not sure how it’s like in your country, but in Singapore no one really bothers to separate their rubbish. But in Korea, it’s damn strict. Recyclables goes to one area, food remnants go to another area and other rubbish must be packed in special bags and left at another area. D: D: And the recyclable area is on a different floor from the other two where I’m staying now. -.-[oh i cheated. The post was actually titled ‘weekends in Korea’ but now that a specific topic seems to have surfaced, I renamed it]
I am horrible at recycling. And I get really stressed over it. At first I have problems differentiating 비닐 and plastic. -.- And then I can’t figure out if cup noodle containers / fastfood drink containers belong to paper or not. And do I really have to put the burger wrapper as paper, or throw it as ‘other rubbish’. #strangeworries
And it doesn’t help that the place has HD cameras at all three rubbish areas to catch illegal dumpers or wrongdoing!!!!!!! I feel super stressed.
Last year when I stayed in a gositel, the recycling / rubbish area were outside the door on a lower stair landing. I ALWAYS HAPPEN TO DO MY RUBBISH WHEN THE AJUSSHI IS ALSO OUT AND ABOUT. WAHHHHH. I feel super stressed. When sometimes he will peer over and then reallocate my rubbish -.- Or at times, he will offer to do it for me. Sometimes he goes tsk tsk tsk when he sees other people’s rubbish separated incorrectly. And I will be like ‘안녕하세요~!’, *hides rubbish behind me*, and walk back to my room.
I miss Singapore’s takeout food!!!!! I have cravings for Shilin’s bento box. And my school’s cai fan stall. That’s really saying something. Seeing how I eat it like almost everyday that I’m in school. -.-
I’m really hungry now. And I have nothing to eat. Maybe a choco pie? D: D: And the dreaded question.
WHAT TO EAT FOR LUNCH????
