July On the Go!
The rain came and went and temperatures moved higher. I’ve been on vacation for the month and since most of my friends are not on the same schedule as me, I went from times of utter boredom to manic fun almost on a daily basis. I took the time to head up to the Cheorwan DMZ and the Mullae Art Alleys, continued my Korean cooking with some pumpkin porridge, sesame bean sprouts, bean sprout soup and a sesame eggplant side dish. It seems I was digging the sesame and bean sprouts this month, doesn’t it? All of the dishes turned out spectacularly delicious. My husband thinks I should start making more soups now, but I don’t know if I’m quite ready for that. Maybe I’ll get a few more side dishes under my apron first.
In other excitement, the TV show, I Can Hear Your Voice (너의 목소라가들려), my husband and his team, Every Single Day, are working on has been ranked number one across the country for over a month now. They’ve done quite a few interviews lately and been on TV themselves. It’s always great for them to get some face time. Often when I tell Korean acquaintances of my husband’s band they don’t know the band by name, but when I mention the TV shows he has produced music for and ask if they’ve heard specific songs by their band that were featured on the show, suddenly it clicks. Here’s just a part of the interview…
Amusingly the day after his band was featured on YStar, I was on an Arirang program for being appointed to the 2013 Worldwide Korea Blog and answered some questions in the segment that aired. That was pretty cool, though also awkward. I imagine most people that get interviewed and are on camera feel awkward afterward if they’re used to being behind the scene. We wrapped up the month with the Ansan Valley Rock Festival where Jae-oo played guitar with Romantisco with Joon Young. We got to see Yellowcard, Fun., The Foals and Nine Inch Nails. The day there was an all around fun fest even if we were covered in mud by the end.
Our Mae is getting bigger and Meyo is still the all around Mae Protector. Whenever she yelps or cries he comes out from wherever he is hiding to see how he can help. They sleep together, play together and are generally just cute all of the time so how can I not take pictures of them, especially when they are soundly sleeping together.
Last but not least, I wanted to give a shout out and a thank you to my WordPress readers. I started my blog on Tumblr some time ago and started posting on WordPress what seems like just a short time ago. The hits on my blog here just keep going up and who doesn’t like knowing people are reading their posts and, hopefully, enjoy what they read. So thank you and I hope you come back for more.
Looking forward to what August will bring. ^^
