Yesterday’s afternoon was spent in Kinokuniya’s chinese section. (:
I was randomly browsing when this new title caught my eye. At first glance, it’s easy to dismiss it as one of the ‘introduction to seoul’ kind of books – where it just does a cursory introduction of seoul and the famous ‘must go’ places.
BUT take a closer look, and I found so many interesting tidbits of information that I never knew about Seoul. The book is divided into various sections, starting from entering korea to food to shopping etc.
In each section, there is a list of related vocabulary and common expressions that you will encounter in Korea. I particulary like the section on food. Prior to reading, I didn’t know that Koreans like Banana Milk 바나나 우유 and there are SO many brands and varieties of banana milk!
What is THE best brand of banana milk? Which Ramen brand is the most tasty?
Read to find out (:
hmm i am so curious to try 바나나 우유! I’m not a fan of flavoured milk but the packaging looks really cute 😀
Another interesting thing I found out…
Koreans seem to love donuts alot HMM. US’s biggest donut chain stores all have branches in Korea and there are a few home-grown donut stores too. The flavours available in Korea are much more and interesting than those available in US! woww.
I’m not much of a fan of donuts, but they sure look delicious in the pictures(:
The author (Kelly) has travelled and lived in Korea for a period of time. She started out as a blogger and the book is a collection of all the information and posts on her blog.
