Eat Your Sushi: Episode 11

Welcome everyone, to the last show we post before getting our animals! We’re flying out tomorrow, and we’re in Seoul for five days, then we’re bringing Spudgy and Meemers home! It’s finally happening! I can expect the next few videos to be of us just hugging our animals for a long time. Spudgy at first will be excited to see us, I’m sure, but I think that excitement will wear down after a day. Then he’ll start giving us the body language of “ok stop touching me” while we’re still sobby and petting him a bit too roughly. I’ve seen those videos online of soldiers coming home and their dogs freaking out. Spudgy I think is too old to show that much excitement. I just hope he’s happy to see us, in any way that he can show. Whoa I started talking about our animals a bit too much in a video that doesn’t feature our animals at all.

Ok, let me just talk about how much we love our neighbours. We showed you a clip in which one of them yoohoo-ed us and shared tomatoes with us. Can I tell you right now: those were literally the most delicious tomatoes I’ve ever had in my life. Korean japjali (sp?) tomatoes were my favorite beforehand, because they tasted like they were salted, and I love salted tomatoes, but these tomatoes we got tasted as tomato-ey as a tomato ever tasted. Imagine eating a grape that tastes like the fake grape candies you might have had as a child: this tomato was like eating candy tomatoes, though I don’t think candy tomatoes exist. I need to find out what those tomatoes were, and where I can get more. They’re infinitely better than anything we got at the supermarkets here. And the fact that our neighbour shared them so freely with us is amazing. We barely even wanted to share the tomatoes amongst ourselves. Our neighbourhood is great :D

Anyhow, back to packing for tomorrow! We need to bring some souvenirs for Spudgy and Meemers. A bone from a good ramen broth for Spudgy and a fun toy for Meemers. We’ve seen some cool cat things here for the Meems. I hope they like it!

  1. yay! lil’ meemers is returning! he is such a lazy sweet kitty… some nights i can’t sleep so i will watch cat videos to help me doze off. I want a lil’ meemrzzz in my life! My wife hates cats but through continued exposure I have brought her to a point that she likes Dr. Meemersworth and if we could have a cat in our home it would have to be docile friendly scottish fold kitty!

  6. Uhm I’m going to be that nitpicky fan. Martina’s … I mean queen fat fat taco head is actually an octopus. The squid one looks like this ( http://farm8.static.flickr.com/7586/16776215742_6a95eee641_m.jpg). Still you look fabulous as always. Can’t wait to see the reunion of you guys, spudgy and meemers!

  7. I wish you the bestest while reuniting with Spudgy and the Meemers. Being without one’s fur-kin is tough.
    Oh! and I remember your appearances on After School Club and Running Man – had me laughing. Lots!
    Tracking an OST from One Ok Rock lead me to k-pop, and then to your channel, so YAY! for J-pop. But wish I could see/hear more of it …

  8. I am SO happy that the 20th has finally come around and that Spudgy and Meemers are finally going to be reunited with you guys! I think hearing that actually made me happier than hearing about the Sailor Moon EVERYTHING (and I LOVE Sailor Moon!)

    I’m so excited for all the pictures and videos of you guys getting pet hugs! I can’t imagine how hard it was for you two!

    When my mom and I went to Korea for about 2 weeks it was the first time we had been away from our cats for that long and it was so hard. After about day 10 we really missed them and kept bugging the cat sitter for photos. And when we got home we just gave them huge hugs for the entire day and they didn’t leave our sides. So much feels!

  9. Oh yeah !
    Always good to have a long video on monday :) Monday is always a long day… To day was a really bad day.. Uh..
    But everything is much better now, thanks guy ^^
    God, I love the squid hat, I hope that I’ll have the same one day xD It’s soo cuuute ! Even if I would look dumb, I’ll wear it everyday º^º
    Anyway, you appeared on After School Club and Star King (with Super Junior anf F(x), omeiguuud) ! And the YoutubeMusicAward to, it was probably not on tv, but it was pretty huge tho :o
    Anyway, see you, lovely youtubers <3

  10. Yay, I got all the j-pop artist names correct! I guess listening to Japanese music for over 10 years has something to do with it. lol Random fact time, Sexy Zone is actually a boy group that debuted when the youngest member was still 11 years old (he is 16 now) so… think about that! (maybe not the best name for them tbh haha) As for other great band names! My favourites are Asian Kung-fu Generation, DaizyStripper, Plastic Tree, Like absolute myself, Aural Vampire and Crazy★shampoo. These are all bands I listen to. :D
    I’m glad Martina had fun at the Sailor Moon event! The glowstick dance movements and fanchants are otaku thing, especially guy otakus do that at idol performances as you witnessed. :D
    Oh and one last thing, could you please add subtitles when Dan is speaking because I can’t never hear what he says. ;^; I keep adjusting the volume when you talk with him. OTL

  12. So excited for the return of my Meemers Oppa I can’t sleep or eat.

    Well, maybe just the tiniest bowl of tuna. And just a little nap. Followed by a little more tuna. Perhaps another nap.

    I’ll just get the human to wake me when Meemers Oppa arrives. She can find me asleep with my head in my bowl. Pawsome plan.

  13. Seeing as you only lived in tall apartments before I assumed the animals never had much of a garden? So that’ll be a nice change but I guess Spudgy will just be sunbathing in his old age.

    and as a lazy person bacon sandwiches are a stable of my diet… might not be the healthiest but hot damn easy quick meal that cannot be beaten.

  14. I’m surprised I didn’t see any comments about the chopsticks thing. Cuz in 4 years in Korea, only when eating alone, I have had very old people take chopsticks out of my left hand and put them in my right. And then I get, like, “instructions” about how the left hand is wrong. Has happened in Seoul… more times than I can count.

  15. I remember you went on Running man, because that was the first time I watched it and then I watched ALLL OF THEM 295 episodes later here I am. You also went on Star King because you met Seper Junior and they were incredibly short. Defining moments in Korean television History guys

  18. BRAIN FREEZE TRICK: press your thumb up onto the roof of your mouth, curving the rest of your thumb up along the back of your teeth. It’ll look like you’re super-deep sucking your thumb (oooo, you SO nasty!!). ^_^ this works 100% for me every time (I eat a *lot* of ice cream lol).
    Have a great trip & a safe return home with your VIP babies!

  25. One Ok Rock is my favorite band!!!! I actually have seen them live twice. The first time I got to meet them, take my picture with them, and got an autographed poster. They came to Wisconsin USA of all places! I actually mentioned them in a letter I am writing to you (which I hope to send off this week). They are one of the bands that I am recommending to you. I would say they are more j-rock than j-pop. THEY ARE AWESOME!!!!

    P.S. Simon, you look like a “smooth criminal”. Ha ha!

    • I agree, One Ok Rock are great, I discovered them just before they put out Answer Is Near which is probably my favorite song along with Kanzen Kankaku Dreamer. I love that they put out English language album, but I missed them when they cam to MN.

  26. ROOOOOOSE! I miss her! <3 Any particular special reason she was visiting y'all? :)
    For the question, I only remember Arirang's Heart to Heart, which was your first show, I believe, Star King, and After School Club. There's another one or two probably, but I can't remember now. :P

  31. The Pillows did the ending song and soundtrack for FLCL, an older anime series by Gainax (the studio behind Evangelion and Ebichu) from 2001. I think you guys would enjoy them, and the anime as well. It’s 6 episodes, weird and symbolic in an awesome way, great to binge watch. I would describe The Pillow’s music like Sloan, crossed with Weezer? Jangly rock, melodic, super fun to listen to. Highly recommend both. :D

  35. Ya’ll were on Running Man wayyyyy back when Lizzy was still a member! You were judges and Martina even got Nichkhun to say Fighting to her Buchan students!

    There was also the time you were on Star Kind where tried to kidnap Super Junior and F(x)! This was probably the beginning of the amazing friendship between Ya’ll and Amber or should I say Llama. Not to mention Simon just TOWERD over all of everyone

    TL;DR Running Man and Star King XD

  36. Martina, I really loved your hair in this video! Maybe a tutorial someday? Or some more midnight cooking? Even if it’s not Japanese food or food you think is interesting I’ve really enjoyed a lot of your recipes and would love to try some more.

    • Yaasss ! Martina’s hairstyle is amaaazing, too bad it was hidden by QFFTH.

    • 100% yes I will! I made my first overnight Japanese broth (dashima) in order to make my own miso soup for breakfast, but I’m still working on perfecting the flavours so that I can share the recipes. Once I get my dashima down, I’ll be able to share so many more recipes!!! Also, screwing around with making my own okonomiyaki, but still getting to know this weird mountain yam used in a lot of cooking. :) Also, I did get my eyelashes extended in Japan, but almost a month ago, they are really really lasting.

  37. Hey Martina, Your eyelashes are looking extra lovely. Have you gotten eyelash extensions since you got to Japan?
