Injeolmi – Korean Rice Cake

At first I thought it is espasol a cylinder-shaped Filipino rice cake originating from the province of Laguna. It is made from rice flour cooked in coconut milk and sweetened coconut strips, dusted with toasted rice flour but its not it is Injeolmi  is a variety of tteok, or Korean rice cake, made by steaming and pounding glutinous rice flour, which is shaped into small pieces and usually covered with steamed powdered dried beans or other ingredients.

Injeolmi is not only a popular snack but also is considered a high quality tteok, used for janchi, party, feast, or banquet) in Korea. It is easily digested and nutritious.Injeolmi can be stored in a refrigerator and taken out when needed. If the tteok is heated slightly in the microwave, it may taste almost as good as the newly made one.

It stinks like Kimchi

Today is just another busy day, I wake up at noon time. After earning points on my adgitize account I have to start cooking, yeah right stressing.

Anyway our apartment stench again that I need to close the bathroom the door, it seems the people in the second/third floor is preparing kimchi because it stinks like one.

Yesterday it also stinks like garlic and kimchi, then later afternoon I found out why the guys are having barbecue party in the garage so probably they prepared kimchi for their barbecue party and today maybe there’s no Kimchi left.

Pepero Day is Coming soon!

It’s not yet November but stores already displays a lot of loot for Pepero Day,  small and big pepero. I normally feel ashamed taking photos but this time I took my chance to take a snap and as what I am expected my husband walk away from me.  It looks like it is a crime to take photo ah, anyway he don’t like it when I always snap here and there, he always said I am embarrassing him.

Pepero Day is an observance in South Korea similar to Valentine’s Day. It is named after the Korean snack Pepero and held on November 11, since the date “11/11″ resembles four sticks of Pepero. The holiday is observed mostly by young people and couples, who exchange Pepero sticks, other candies, and romantic gifts. Lotte denies starting the holiday and instead states that they noticed a bump in Pepero sales around November 11th and after continued popularity they decided to then encourage the holiday with special gift boxes and other promotions.Some consider it to be a contrived holiday and some teachers have encouraged children to exchange healthy snacks to help combat obesity. An alternative “Garaetteok Day” (sticks of white tteok) has been proposed.

Switched at Birth Girls Want to Stay With Wrong Moms

This situation is already familiar among Filipinos because of the popular TV show Mara Clara and the famous Korean Teledrama Endless Love where the girls are switched in the hospital. But what happened in Russia is not plot nor a teledrama but it happened in real life when Irina and Anya where accidentally switched at birth.

Their true identities were revealed after the ex-husband of Yuliya Belyaeva, one of the mothers, refused to pay for child care because his daughter, Irina, looked nothing like him. After conducting several DNA tests it emerged that neither adult was Irina’s biological parent.

It happened that  their mothers gave birth in the same maternity ward just 15 minutes apart in 1999, and their infant daughters were inadvertently given the wrong name tags.

While the girls admit that they were happy to have found each other, neither one wants to leave the family they grew up with even though they are not their biological parents.
