HOLY CRAP DID YOU GUISE EVER SEND US A LOT OF STUFF!
Really, thank you for this all. Christmas in Korea can be kind of lonesome, not being with our families at home, and it being more difficult to partake in Christmas traditions, so these packages and letters are really, really appreciated. So we decided to record the gift opening process, similar to our WTF Foreign Candy Episode, and catch our reactions to some of the stuff.
Let me say this: POLAND REPRESENT! OH MAN! It was so great to receive so much Polish stuff. This is Simon here writing, by the way. You know, when we visited Canada back in October, we spent a lot of time at the Polish supermarket, Starsky, taking in as much as possible. Korea might have a Polish community somewhere, but we’ve never seen it, so getting our hands on Polish soup and candy is almost impossible. Thank you so much!
Now let me say this – Martina writing here – let me just say thank you for being not only so generous, but also so thoughtful. Not only did you send us awesome stuff, but you also sent us great explanations of it all, with lots of “I thought of you when…” messages. Seriously guise. This is so great. Thank you.
Lastly, we want to apologize to the last batch of fantail that we had taken pictures of, but had lost the pictures to. We’ve been enjoying the stash, especially the Hagel Slag, the Russian Candies, and the Sour Cream and Onion crisps from Israel. We feel terrible for having lost all of the pictures. Really sorry. We’ve taken a picture of all that remains, which isn’t really much, since we’ve been eating lots of it. NOM NOM NOM! The Hagel Slag is especially…special. It’s delicious: we’re just not sure how it’s properly eaten. Just…chocolate sprinkles? Put on toast? Is that how it’s done? Any advice would be appreciated.
Again, thanks everyone. YOU’RE THE BEST!
