Jamming & Nomming

Winter season is best season for spicy cravings and what’s better than tteokbokki, which is Korean rice cake with sweet, red chili sauce, and kimchi pancakes? But no Korean meal is complete without traditional beverage: makgeolli for a first.

My friend suggested we go to Don Day, a quaint Korean restaurant on 7th Ave in downtown Calgary. The setting struck me a little because it was if I was immediately transported to Korea, that is judging based on what I’ve seen from K-dramas. Need I mention that K-pop music was playing and oppas were our cooks? In short summary, this has been the most authentic and best tasting Korean food I’ve had in Calgary! I will definitely find myself coming back for more.

Perhaps I couldn’t wait for another Friday to come that I’ve resorted to casual attire. I am absolutely in love with GAP’s supersoft tees. I went a little crazy two weeks ago when I bought a couple pieces. They are so comfy and easy to wear. Highly recommended!

Korea(town?)

After a terrible Geography midterm and stressful few weeks, a dose of fun and relaxation with family & friends was much needed. What better way to do so than jokes over Korean dinner and finally, a taste of soju!

Since 2006, I’ve been interested in all things Korean: food, culture, and fashion. A month ago, I went to Market Collective and picked up this vintage, Korean branded coat from Joyce’s Closet. I fell in love with the eccentric pop of pink and the oversized fit. To keep the coat as main point of interest, I paired it with a very simple black dress.
