one of my missions are to introduce you to not only the special but the local favourites here. and one of it is the FIST RICE! it directly translates to fist rice from Korean because 주목밥 Jumok = fist, bab = rice. my friend told me that the usual Jumokbabs are meant for the poor pfft because it’s huger than a fist and has tuna fillings in it usually. costing 1,5000KRW.

but my first Jumokbab experience was much more fancy as we had bulgogi, spam, kimchi bokkeum etc as fillings. they are also smaller than normal Jumokbabs and they cost 2,5000won-3,000won onwards. but I am pretty sure I am paying for the taste and the variety because it’s really damn good.

this shop is right outside Lotte World called KONG’S RICEBALL. it’s a chain restaurant so if you see any just barge into it =3. that day it was already late but the place was still packed with people.

hungry girl. to eat inside Lotte World you gotta prepare 8,000won for an ordinary Korean Meal that would cost you 4,000won. I’d rather come out have these deliciously expensive riceballs.

soup and water are self service.

the oh so good and incredulously cute jumokbabs! this is a set of 5, costing at 12,000won (including 3 2,500won ones are 2 3,000won ones)

you scoop it out with a spoon and it’s so good. “AH MASHITDA!!” is what the little kid next to me said loudly and heck it was so cute xD.

PS: there’s a branch right outside Ewha Univ as well.

here’s the add – 서울 서대문구 대현동 60-8 1층 copy and paste it on maps.naver.com and you will find it =).

Hi Jamie, how is your Korean language studying going? Do you have much progress? There is a kind of Korean food look like a rice paper (rice paper is used to make egg roll, a very famous Vietnamese food.) but it is a sea weed. Man, sea weed tastes very good and can be used for food wrapping too. Have a good Korean meal. Visit my website for good Dharma: http://NamoAmitabha.ws You can visit the blog http://DailyLenglui.blogspot.com to read my ongoing Dharma talks there.

Your website is very convenient to put comments Jamie. Do you miss your family Jamie? When you buy a video camera telephone, one for yourself and one for your family, you will see your family member while you talk to them on the phone^^. I think this phone is not expensive and you can use Google search to buy two for yourself and your family. Maybe it’s just a regular phone with a webcam attached to it. That way you won’t miss your family too much.

I show you a method to study your Korean much better: Before you go to your class, you should review your lesson that you’ll learn that day or next day. When you are in the classroom, you should pay attentions to what your teacher teaches and put some main ideas on the paper. When you go home that day or next day, review all of your lessons from the main ideas on the paper. There you go Jamie, you just learn your classroom lesson three times more than your classmates and remember much more.

Hi Jamie Liew, I am a Malaysian and am planning for a trip to Korea this year. However my term break is only from end of July till around 2nd week of September. I would love to visit Korea during Autumn, and from the websites, I see that Sept-Nov is Autumn. But when I see blogs of others who went there during the first or 2nd week of september, it seems like its pretty hot. May I know if first week or second week of september, will it be cold or really hot and humid? Is the weather like Genting or like KL Malaysia? I love cooling weather. I do not like sweating in my pants like in Malaysia…. :/ Please let me know? Thanks! 🙂

Oh and also, I would like to find out, in order to work or get a job in Korea, what are the most basic necessities? Like what do they require? If I’ve studied finish my degree in Nottingham University Malaysia Campus and took Korean as my foreign language subject, is there a chance of me working in Korea? Do they accept people like that? Cause my course requires me to pick a language between Japanese, Korean, German or French, and mastering the language. I’m interested in Korean. And I’ll have to finish studying my entire 3 years degree with this Korean language as part of the subject. If I’ve learnt the korean language, do I stand a chance of getting a job there in the future? Or is it just impossible unless you’re Korean?

LONGGGG questions but I hope u can lend me a helping hand since u’ve been living there for quite some time. Thank you so much! 🙂
