Althea Haul

This past few months, I have been on Korean skin care products haul lately  thinking that it will hopefully make my skin problems be solved. Once again, I have purchased three items from Althea that aims for pore tightening, blackhead and whitehead removal, moisturizing, and help in my acne and acne scars.

I wouldn’t put much detail on each product since I would make individual posts that is more detailed with their pros and cons. I have already started trying them but I’ll give it for maybe 2 to 3 weeks more to know the products’ effect. Having this post, I just want to share what I bought and know your opinions if you have already tried them.

Hobing is a Korean dessert cafe that mainly serves bingsu (Korean ice dessert). They also have toasted bread, coffee, smoothies, Tteok-bokki (stir spicy rice cake) and Rabokki (stir spicy rice cake with noodle).

Bingsu is a Korean shaved ice dessert that usually have toppings like red beans, rice cakes, fruits, and more. The bingsu are placed in bowls and appears to be a snow-ice mountain like. This is usually enjoyed during summer.


Ye Dang Korean BBQ Restaurant


Over the weekend, I have tried Ye Dang Korean Restaurant. Ye Dang serves authentic Korean dishes from their banchan (side dishes) to their main dishes!

Upon entering their restaurant, you will be greeted by the owners and staff saying the usual “Annyeonghaseyo!” or “Kamsahamnida!” once you are already done eating.😊

The serving of food was fast enough considering we ate during the peak hour (around 12:30pm). The serving of banchan were generous enough that I think I can already be full with the side dishes only. As I remembered, the banchan were some vegetables (spinach, I think), green onion pancake, kimchi, kimchi radish, sweet potatoes, some sweet anchovies (dilis), and fish cake! Every side dishes was delicious indeed. (more…)
