Thanks for tuning in to this week’s LiveChat. Oh man. Can we just say how awesome are those Nerf dart guns? Also you might have noticed we tried a different room this week for our LiveChat, because the downstairs room in which we usually do our LiveChat was a) pretty crowded with studying peeps, and we didn’t want to annoy them, and b) hotter than balls. Someone turned on the heater since Korea is getting so chilly and it got really, really toasty. We can’t handle getting overheated like that. It’s the worst! But I’m happy we at least dropped into that room because some awesome girls who were studying at the cafe brought us some tuna kimbap from apparently, and I quite “the best kimbap place new Ehwa University” and I was really grateful that they thought of our empty growling tummies. We’re munching on them right now at the studio and while I suspicious of the giant line of mayo, it was actually a cool idea for dipping the unseasoned tuna rolls into! YUM. In the end we took our chat upstairs. I hope you didn’t mind the change! :D Also hello to the hilarious photobombing/photodancing ladies in the background who are from a local international high school in Korea. It’s interesting to see the confidence difference between a Korean high school student who would run away from the camera and an International high school student who has no probably dancing and acting crazy on camera live. Hahahahah! Ah yes, a taste of home.
Onto the packages!
Special thanks to:
Mad aka Madeline & her mom Dawn from Louisiana
Friederick from Germany
A few things I learned about the packages after the LiveChat, because we had some people from Germany there to explain it for us afterwards: yes, that was tea that I ate. And the Chocolate Psoriasis is supposedly a wild herb thingy? I’m not sure. I was a bit flustered, so I don’t remember all too much.
Also, from last week’s LiveChat, we didn’t get to open the second package that we had planned for the day, because the quality got terrible. We did open it afterwards, though, and we took some pictures to say thank you. So thank you Misa and Nowan from Norway. Errrrrr, I might have eaten the entirety of the Smash bar before Martina got to take a picture of it…but I got it! It’s great! We have a terrible addiction to Smash from Norway. In fact, when the EYK Crew went to Norway this year we bought 6 packages of Smash and it made it all the way to Germany before we polished it off. Never made it back to Korea.
From last week’s LiveChat, due to the terrible quality, we didn’t get a chance to thank Kim from the UK. We opened it during the LiveChat, but it was so blurry that we looked like Minecraft. It was really interesting to see all the Polish soups when you say you’re from the UK, but after we read your letter it made more sense that Poland joining the EU resulted in more Polish products. You are a lucky ducky because we love Polish soup packages. When we visited Poland Martina stocked up but we actually just ran out, so this is gonna help on cold nights in Korea when we’re cuddling in our onesies :D I’m curiously as to what other countries have easy to access products from local EU countries?
And lastly, we’ve received some lovely packages from people coming to our cafe as well. They unfortunately got mixed up because the baristas just gathered them all into one of the bags, and we didn’t get notes with all of them so we can’t know who left us what…but we have some pictures at least! Leave us a comment if you recognize your package! Thank you for all the lovely stuff. Especially the hot sauces. OMG WE LOVE HOT SAUCE!
