Here’s the next instalment of our Eatyourkimchi Road Trip: it’s just us playing around Yeosu. We went to Yeosu primarily for the food which is beyond delicious – as you might have seen in our FAPFAP on Grilled Eel – and also for the Waterpark, but here’s what we did in between filming those videos. No, it’s not really traditional or culturally relevant. This is just how we goof around.
Flip flop kick is an important pastime of ours. We discovered it on our honeymoon and have been playing ever since, every summer. Just a couple of months ago we played it down in Bumgae, and I unfortunately got my flip flop stuck in a tree. We had to climb the tree to get it down. That’s because I kicked up rather than forward, and I forgot the strategies to the game, as you can see in the video. It’s better to do a sidewinding kick rather than a straight up punt. Impress all of your friends with this knowledge. I’ll stop talking about flip flop kick now.
Also, Martina has freakish luck at finding four leaf clovers. Soo Zee has never found one in her life, and Martina found two in two minutes. Martina is a heap of bizarre yet useless mutant powers. She can dislocate her joints on command (though it’s painful). The ability to hear high pitched noises, like all security systems and dog whistles. She can smell mould in any house, which made apartment hunting in Korea really prohibitive, because so many places in Korea are mouldy as hell. She’s also really good at training animals like hamsters and rabbits. She can also hurt herself on just about any object: is that a paper airplane coming at me? Let me catch it with my open eyeball! Ok that’s it for Martina’s superpowers.
I feel like I wrote this blog post drunk. It’s really random. I’m not drunk, but I am very jet lagged. Hot damn. Getting back on schedule is really challenging. I’m gonna go take a nap now and wake up at 2AM. Peace out homies!
