Favourites (06/07 2015)

July 27, 2015

It all started with this video by Eat Your Kimchi in which Martina decorates a compact case making it look like a deliciously cute pile of whipped cream. I had seen the style before, but had no idea it had a name until seeing this video. I learned that "decoden/데코덴" is a Japanese trend of decorating things (usually phones) with obnoxious but adorable charms. So, I promptly found charms and iphone cases on Gmarket, and regular silicone at a local dollar store. So addictive. So cute.

There is apparently some public service announcement series which was started by the Metro department in Australia in order to promote public transit safety. I don't know how or why it became an app game, but it did. And it's hilarious. It's basically a series of mini games to avoid various causes of death which get faster and faster. Dumb Ways to Die. So good. (App Store link!)

As someone who loved colouring as a kid, I'm in love with colouring books for grown ups. It's good to unplug from social media, plug into some music, and think about nothing. The books come in different themes and designs, and run for about $10 (Gmarket link!)

I found this ice cream at a "3 for $1" type thing, so perhaps my love for them springs from the fact that my expectations were quite low and I was pleasantly surprised. Regardless, with a combination of cookies and cream filling, wrapped in white chocolate, wrapped in strawberry flavour... it can't be wrong. It's called "옥동자" and I won't pretend to know what that means. Naver searches bring up a character from an obnoxious Korean comedy show, so...

To practice my Korean, I've taken up writing another blog! The blog is through Naver (Korea's Google) and has been a challenge... especially recipes... but it's been a lot of fun to do. While my English blog is (usually) 2 posts per month, on my Korean blog I'm writing about smaller topics like day trips, recipes, etc. I decided to start it with posts about trips/thingsfrom the beginning of 2015 and I'm almost up to date!
