Korean food by native Korean

This is my first time to try some real Korean food cooked by native Korean. I am very fortunate to be staying in a BnB hosted by this gorgeous Korean GoEun in Belgium. It’s super yummy!

PS to GoEun: The noodles on the table were only half done and I was thinking to finish the rest when I woke up. Why did you chuck them away while I was sleeping??  😦

Mission for today:

You need these ingredients:



Chop the cucumber and pear into slices but do not cook them. You’re supposed to eat them raw. Cut the beef into slices as well.


Fry the beef:



Put everything on top of the noodles:

They’re so yummy!! Thank you very much GoEun! 🙂



Haagen Daz for lunch in school

This is probably one of the richest and most valuable school lunch I have ever had in my life! With 230yen, you get your regular Japanese lunch plus a Haagen Daz strawberry flavoured ice-cream, which costs roughly the same if you get it in supermarket.


You can tell how yummy it is from how much she is enjoying it 🙂


3 years ago today, Japan experienced one of the most devastating earthquake in decent decade. Hundreds of thousands people lost their homes, life, suffered from the aftermath of earthquake. Everyone stops their things and pray at 2.46 pm. The flags were flown at half mast.


Meeting an old friend in the park

Took the time last week to see my 2 old friends in the park near my place. Saw only one of them. Her body language says she’s in great boredom. I couldn’t help thinking maybe something bad had happened to the other one.

Ohira san 太平山

I took the last week of my holiday to do some hiking with my friends. We went up to one of the mountains called Ohira san太平山 near my place. The view is —-stunning!



Forgot to bring your food and drinks? Dont’ worry! Loads of shops along the way.Image


Let’s check out what’s upstairs!Image

Japanese people like to write their wishes on the locks and put them on the fence.Image

A resting placeImage

Heaps of different trails on the mountain for you to try. This one is 170m long. Wanna try?Image

After walking hundreds of steps up….Image

You will get here! Image


I was surprised as this is the first time I saw someone playing hang-gliding in Japan! I thought Japanese people aren’t into sports, especially this kind which may be too breathtaking for them.Image


As I said 2 weeks ago, the odds that you will bump into a festival when you come to Japan in summer are quite high. One of them is fireworks shows. There are fireworks shows in almost every town in Japan over the summer holiday period between June and August. Wanna play fireworks yourself instead of watching? Unlike many other countries, it is legal to play with fireworks in Japan. It also explains why you will see shops put out loads of fireworks products in this time.


How long can a pair of scissors be?

How long are the longest scissors you have ever seen?

This pair is the longest I’ve ever seen in my life. The blade has 22 cm long!

Why so long?

They are for those who want to have a very nice cut when they use it to cut a whole piece of paper from one end to the other, say, A4.Plus, it can save you loads of time if you can cut an A4 paper in one go instead of several cuts.
