I can’t find any butter knives for sale at Emart, so I have to use my spoon…
I can’t find anywhere else to shop except Emart. Emart is really expensive. WHERE IS THE VALUE VILLAGE???
I went to buy an umbrella, because it’s started raining, and I walk 20 minutes to school. I saw some cute umbrellas in a stand at the Emart beauty salon, all packaged up in long matching umbrella length bags, so I went in and was looking at them so I could buy one. Only then I noticed they were damp. And then I noticed women looking at me strangely. I put the umbrellas down quickly and left. Oops! As I was leaving Emart, I noticed a special dispenser of long decorated bags, specifically so people who have umbrellas don’t drip water all through the store…I’m glad nobody called security on the potential umbrella pilferer. It just looked like packaging to me, honest!
I love Korean disposable pens! They are all extra fine point, something really hard to find in the U.S.! A medium point would be too thick to write hangul without it looking like kindergarten sized letters. Yayy!
I can’t find sugar-free anything.
Most of the milk is homogenized and super rich and yummy. I’m buying lactose-free here because it’s no more expensive than regular milk. But DHA milk for extra brain power or melatonin milk for sleeping is super expensive. I never drink milk much in the states, but here I am eating cereal in the mornings because I’m in too much of a hurry for a proper breakfast. I’m also eating a lot of toast. I buy banchan and mean to eat it with rice or the frozen mandu or meat or fish that I’ve bought, but mostly I just snack on banchan. I’m dying for Korean potato salad and can’t find any anywhere.
I think I’ve injested more salt here in three weeks than I have in an entire year in the U.S.
I keep forgetting to buy salt and pepper. Sometimes I make soft-boiled eggs, and it’s pretty bland.
It took me an hour to figure out what kind of instant coffee sticks to buy, since I can’t read the ingredients.
I need a Korean companion to show me what to do.
