On the last day of 2012, some friends and I got to check out the ice sculptures at the Namsangol Hanok Village. The installation was pretty small, but there were some cool sculptures and I never knew this hanok village existed right in the middle of Seoul.
As part of my 101 List (#18, go to a museum), some friends and I went to check out the Tim Burton exhibit at SEMA yesterday. I loved the way they turned the whole museum into weird Tim Burton land. Spirals everywhere and monster characters in the windows. :) The exhibit itself though was really cool and it makes you appreciate all of his movies that much more. His work is so humorous, stylistic, and so full of personality I just love it.
You can’t really tell by this photo, but it was really busy inside. Even though it was a week day, there were a ton of people and it was a bit tough to get an unobstructed view of all the art. I still recommend going, but just go mid-week and early in the day rather than late afternoon.
And now moving onto some vegan eats. I’m trying to eat more grains and beans these days…. I bought these sweet soysauce blackbeans at a mom n pop banchan shop in my neighborhood. This is one of my favorite side dishes that I should probably start making myself. Love the salty-sweet combo. The rice is a mixture of sprouted brown rice, millet, and quinoa.
I also had some sweet mungbean porridge at a small neighborhood cafe. When I don’t feel like working at home but it’s too cold to go anywhere far, I head to this small cafe near my house for some juk and coffee.
In closing, here’s Bunny admiring her own shadow. Fierce. It snowed on New Year’s Day, so I took her to the roof to celebrate the new year together. teehee. Speaking of snow… there is so much ice on the sidewalks these days, if I had a nickle for every time I almost slipped and fell on my ass, I’d be ballin’. Walk safe, my friends, walk safe.
