Hello and welcome to Alien’s Day Out! My name is Mipa (the ‘Alien’), and I’m a vegan living in Seoul, South Korea. I have a bit of a muddled background in that while I was born in Busan, South Korea, I actually spent the majority of my life growing up in Ghana, Ivory Coast, England, Scotland, and the US (PA and So-Cal). After college in the States, I returned to Korea in 2006 and have been here ever since (wow, it’s been a long time!).
After a few years as a vegetarian, I eventually made the full switch to veganism in late 2008, and haven’t looked back since. Soon after that transition, I started this blog to document and share my vegan experiences here in Korea. Now, years later, I’m thrilled that this blog is still going strong! I’m continuously amazed by how this blog has become such a huge part of my life, more than I ever expected. I feel incredibly grateful for such awesome readers and all the support and nice words. I hope to continue to be a useful resource for other veg-heads in Korea and around the world.
Some things I like to do besides cooking, baking, and eating yummy vegan food include:

I love getting reader email and I read every single one, but unfortunately, I cannot always respond to each person. I will try though! :) If you have a specific question, you may want to first do a search on the blog, or check out the ‘resources’ tab. Also, the Seoul Veggie Club is a great place to get quick answers to common questions. Thanks for your patience and understanding.
