Hey guise!

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!

  4. I snorted so hard when Martina said Simon just ate tea! Also I want to say Creole seasoning is my favorite right after Garlic salt (just garlic, parsley, and salt in a shaker container). I put garlic salt on everything and when I want it a little more spicy I add Creole seasoning. Cool little packets, ours comes in a shaking container.

    In your after video comment narrative you mentioned making Polish soups at home. I was wondering what other non-Korean food you eat/make at home. IDK I guess I just assumed you ate only Korean food all the time ahhahaha but now I see that as not being possibly true!

    • Ha! No. At home, we barely cook Korean food. We try to make healthier stuff, like chicken breast salads, power balls, granola, such and such :D

  5. I remember when I lived in Toronto there were some Polish stores (mostly around Roncesvalles) where me and my family used to go buy imported Polish stuff. Now I live in the UK, and because there are sooo many new Polish immigrants, there are plenty of Polish shops around with imported Polish food (and not even really “imported” since it’s in the EU). Food from other EU countries is not as common, just because the demand is not as high. Even regular local shops here stock Polish staples like bread, sausage/cheese, and of course… beer! Cheap Polish beer is actually really popular in London, especially with students and hipsters. The more you know *rainbow*

  6. My parents in law tried to eat dry turkey stuffing mix one time… That’s way worse than eating tea. They eat a lot of the candy we get in fanmail and while we were in Seoul one time, they opened this box thinking it was some type of snack and it was actually stuffing mix… they didn’t eat much of it when they realised dry stuffing mix tastes terrible.

  7. Just to be clear:

    I was 100% sober and sane when I wrote ‘Mr Carrot! I was looking for you!’

    Mr Carrot reminded me of a HK variety show where audience members got to hold carrot plushies while watching the game. One audience member said he resembled the letter A. But since the variety show ended, I missed Mr carrot.
