On this day, November 11th in South Korea people exchange peperos (similar to Pocky). It apparently used to be done so that one could become taller and thinner…I can see the symbolism but it’s perhaps a little counter-intuitive. Anyway, it’s now become a simple gesture of friendship (if Wikipedia can be relied upon in this case).
Though I have to admit that I don’t quite understand this product, I will nevertheless posit that neither ‘dress’ nor ‘virgin’ has any place in its name. It seems that ‘western dandelion’ is a key ingredient, here. So, does dandelion milk make your whiter? Inquiring minds want to know…’Vigorous care making clear and transparent glass-glow skin Milky Dress The White Platinum’…okay, then.
Well, I’ve finally gotten around to trying makgeolli, which I guess I would describe as a type of rice beer? It’s quite tasty, actually with a slight fizziness, and a creamy, sweet and sour flavour. It is a little bit fruity as well. This shop actually sells frozen grape and grapefruit makgeolli, also, as well as makgeolli bread. I’m sure the bread is delicious, but I’m too full to try it at the moment.
