When my boyfriend and I were in Seoul last spring every time we boarded the subway, an ad for the latest Dynasty Warriors game would play on the television displays. Neither of us speaks Korean, but since every Dynasty Warriors game looks like every other Dynasty Warriors game the ad might as well have been in English. It was strangely comforting.

Maangchi-ssi, your instructions for the egg yolk mask remind me of when I was about 11 or so. I was living on Okinawa and I had started to develop acne, a lady at a shop stopped me and said "oh, your poor face! You should put egg yolk on it." I was too scared to try it! But years later, I found out that egg yolk has lots of vitamin A, which is the same ingredient in a lot of prescription acne medications. My acne is better now, but I still occasionally use an egg yolk pack on my skin to keep it healthy.

We never got to try korean toast when we were in Seoul last year. I'm a bit bummed, but at least now I can make it at home!

I'm not actually surprised about Japanese food being difficult in Korea, as there is still a significant portion of the population that is within one generation of remembering the Japanese occupation. That said, the Japanese also put corn on pizza in spite of having been taught to make it directly from the Americans during the post war period and having some of the best Italian restaurants outside of Italy.

That is not green onion, Martina. You are using buchu. Which are Asian chives. So you have made buchujeon.

I avoided the mall today because is was also the tax free weekend for back to school. 
I've known since January that Sephora was coming to the Coral Ridge Mall; the regional rep of Urban Decay told me as we were chatting away at the Sephora store in Des Moines, IA.  So I was not surprised to see an email pop up...

At that early in the morning, Sephora was the only store with any kind of business. I left the mall before 11am and there still wasn't any traffic. I'm guessing it didn't pick up until 4 or 5pm when everyone was off work.

I love it when videos show people eating the stems of veggies. They only sell the choice bits of the veg here in the states, so when you grow your own vegetables you never have any idea what to do with all the other parts of the plant.

Here in the US, I think the most common tests of cooking skill would be either biscuits or pie crust. Omelettes or fried eggs of a certain done-ness (I.e over medium vs over easy) might be on the list too.

French vanilla ice cream in the US is actually frozen custard, I.e. Ice cream which contains egg yolks. It frequently also contains vanilla beans as well because it is seen as a premium flavor.

Maangchi-ssi, when we were visiting Seoul last year, we ate dinner in Gangnam and they grilled the kimchi with the Samgyeopsal and I wasn't sure how to eat it. Would you include it in the lettuce wrap or eat it separately?

maybe something like this would work? I would use the tip at the bottom about making the wipes out of flannel or cut up cloth diapers,  http://www.earthmamaangelbaby.com/mama-resources/expert-panel/diba-tillery-rn-bsn/making-homemade-baby-wipes
