    May is the Buddha's birthday. The Koreans celebrate by hanging paper lanterns until their wishes come true. I wish I could have witnessed such an event. Unfortunately, not many festivals take place in June. The famous Korean mud festival takes place in July. July also marks the monsoon season.

    ... was that it tasted like milk more than ice. Smooth, yet cold. And with the peanut powder and condensed milk on top, it compliment each other so well. Pity there were only 3 pieces of the chewy rice cake in the bowl, I wished they had more... As for the French toast, not too sweet, crunchy at the right place, it was delicious.

    The meeting went to plan and we offered a wider range of products and services they asked for price down, we both left feeling it would be ok.

    A koreai dinnye éppen olyan finom, mint a magyar. Csak könnyebb hazacipelni a zölségesnél készenlétben tartott, koreai gyártmányú "dinnyecipelővel" :-)
