My husband ran Resfest Korea for over 8 years. Cleaning out the office, we came across a box full of festival banners. Since he can’t throw anything away and I can find new uses for just about anything, they are becoming reusable shopping bags. It takes an entire day to cut the pattern pieces and the next few days are spent sewing the parts together.

There will be a Resfest reunion party sometime soon where I’ll sell these keepsakes. Price? Each one takes 2 hours to make. So far there are 12 bags and I’ve been funemployed since I got to Seoul…

anyung 안녕 means “hi” in korean.

i am a newlywed gyopo교포 wife living in seoul. i left los angeles to start a new life with my film professor husband. here you’ll get to see what i learned, what i did, what i noticed and more. for starters, this is my international acting debut (he wrote, directed, produced):


or these load more quickly:   (football/soccer)   (golf)

suddenly it has become winter. unaccustomed to seasons, i can hardly handle the cold outside. thankfully korean homes are heated using radiant heat (ondol 온돌). this means that the hot water pipes run underfoot and it’s nice and toasty inside. today i won’t go outside because there is enough food to last until tomorrow when i have an appointment to A/S (“after service”, repair) my handphone (mobile, cellular) and the walk home will take me past my favorite market (shijang 시장).
