Fulfill your cravings!

We’ve been cooking a lot at home these days and this is hubby’s best dish ever! It’s called jjimdak – chicken, potatoes, onions and clear noodles boiled down to perfection in a specially made soy sauce (slightly spicy). This is a dish we had frequently when we were overseas in South Korea, but something that is not offered over here in Atlanta, despite all the Korean restaurants that are around. So, our cravings led us to make it ourselves, or rather, himself. I am NOT a good cook. Luckily, hubby is! 🙂 Results? It was darn good! It was nearly identical to the jjimdak goodness that we used to have overseas. I would recommend this dish to anyone who travels to South Korea! 😉

South Carolina Day 2 – Folly Beach

Day 2 of our trip was the best: Folly Beach, SC. We’ve been working really hard to set up our online shop and being at the beach just felt so rewarding! I was very sure, a human being definitely needs some uninterrupted relaxation from time to time. It was great. It’s actually funny that someone like me can say such a thing because I’m the type of person who enjoys the city – architecture, buildings, shopping, fancy restaurants, etc. – not so much nature. The oohs and aahs and every other exclamation of delight you can think of only lasts for about 30 minutes at most. But it was different this time! The color of the water wasn’t crystal blue like it is down in Florida, but its emerald green waters were more than enough to satisfy a soul like me. Or maybe it was because I was with my wonderful soul mate! The important thing is, hubs & I both had a blast! Beautiful memories, imprinted.

South Carolina Day 1 – Downtown Charleston

The hubby & I haven’t been on vacation in a zillion years. It was a relatively short trip but felt so good to get out of town and breathe in some fresh air! There were condos with lovely, spacious balconies in front of this Waterfront Park which I would totally love to live in if I had the chance (hubby agrees). Everyday would be vacation. I think it’s THE ideal environment to work in, pretty confident to say I could stay stress-free, well, at least about 80% of the time 😉 The food was great, the scenery was great, and the people were great! What else do you need? Definitely give Charleston some of your time when you get a chance. Highly recommended.
