- Mountain and Field: In this post, she shows us a typical coffee machine that you find in restaurants. In the west having a dessert option on the menu is very common, but in Korea there is practically no such thing at restaurants here. Except of course "western style" restaurants. Instead of a dessert menu I think Korean folks get by with something sweet after dinner by having tea or coffee. Actually, at many restaurants I have been to they sometimes give you a small cup of traditional tea after the meal. The standard, though seems to be a coffee machine at the entrance area of the restaurant. Check out her post, where she tells a few secrets and how-to's of this great machine.
- The View From Over Here: Who would have thought that shopping at a supermarket would be so complicated? Globalization should make things easier right? Well shopping at Korean supermarkets can be very mesmerizing. Not only are they usually crowded but there are employees giving out free samples, meat sellers yelling at the top of their lungs and sales like "2+1" that for the first time shopper can make you dizzy. Thankfully her post can give us some insight on all this and a few tips on getting around Korean supermarkets.
3. Talking to Myself: Sometimes shopping can also bring happy surprises. In this post he highlights how when you go to a mini-convenience store and buy one thing you sometimes leave with more than you expected.
As you can see, as time passes during our journey here in Korea, we figure out things little by little. If you are a blogger in Korea I would suggest giving us a few posts about the little things in life that you figured out. I know I could think of some for my blog.
