Korean reads in Singapore – Hannah press

Singapore really lacks a good variety of Korean reading materials. The only place where there is a substantial collection of Korean books is in Seoul Mart (B1 Cineleisure/Square 2). Compared to the number of Japanese reading materials available in Kino, it’s really little. But.. I found out last month that Singapore do have a bi-weekly newspaper printed entirely in Korean! It’s supposed to be for those Koreans who moved over to Singapore, but it really serves as a good reading material


Best of all.. its FREE. You can pick up a copy at the counter in Seoul Mart (: This edition comes with an additional magazine. The best part is that it’s a Korean-English magazine, which means that all the articles in Korean are translated to English! How perfect is that (: Its a really great learning material, you can get to ‘check’ if your comprehension skills are accurate.

I know that you can easily access the internet if you want korean reading materials. But somehow I prefer the old-fashioned print copy (: Since books are expensive, this is a great alternative, isn’t it? I must remember to pay Seoul Mart a visit every 2 weeks!


Anw just as I was walking into Seoul Mart, I saw 2 ladies who bought this ice-cream.




Well, I was so curious about it and went to get one too 😀 It’s really heavenly, especially for people like me who prefer to bite rather than lick their ice-cream. I didn’t manage to snap a picture, but I managed to find the ones above after googling it. It really looks like corn right? hahaha I love korean ice cream!

    oh wow, I’m so happy to meet a fellow korean who lives in singapore! well, I don’t live here, but I used to live here for 9 years, and am now staying here temporarily as “vacation” for a few months…
    but YAY! you like pumpkin too! I’ll be happy to share the recipe with you.

    – one big onion, sliced
    – one clove garlic, crushed
    – abt one Tablespoon butter or olive oil
    – about 1 kg chopped up pumpkin (best is Japanese kabocha), you don’t even need to peel it because the skin is totally edible
    – about two cans of chicken broth (vegetable broth if you’re vegetarian)
    – milk or cream
    – salt and pepper
    – (optional) curry powder

    1) First melt butter into a big pot, then sautee in onions and garlic and cook until soft and fragrant.
    2) Load in the chopped pumpkin.
    3) Pour in the broth until it covers the pumpkin
    4) Bring to a boil, then simmer until pumpkin is soft and cooked
    5) Transfer everything into a blender, blend until smooth
    6) Return to pot, stir in as much milk/cream as you like
    7) Salt and pepper to taste
    8) I like to add a dash of curry powder to kick it up, but that’s up to you

    I hope you like this soup!! If you make it, please send me a comment about how you liked it! YAY! ENJOY!

    I don’t really eat larabars, because they are SO expensive! but you can find them in most cold storage here in singapore…also greek yogurt like fage. Fage is AWESOME but omg, again, SO expensive here in singapore! so I’m just having regular plain marigold yogurt, which is SO not the same. you can also try naturally market at vivocity…hope this helped, and enjoy!

    have a close relationship with hannah press singapore aiming to
