Kimchi Friday

Spread the love
It’s been a few days since my last post, I am just not feeling well to write and this ‘girl thing’ is killing me.
As usual we went shopping last Friday night, buy some stuffs for home and for cheat day. In our surprise when we are paying in the counter, the old couple (owner)gave us this big container of home-made kimchi, never thought this is what they mean last week when they’re seems so interested that we always bought bag of kimchi’s on their supermarket. They said something in Korean language but in the manner that we cannot understand each other we just smile and say “kamsahamnida” (thank you), all we understand is the word kimchi. My husband and I feel so thankful to their kindness as we say thank you to them. This is full though but ‘someone’ already got his share before I can take picture.,

Since my husband arrived here in Seoul, he usually buy his stuffs in that supermarket that’s why he already got a point card, it is also the nearest super market into our apartment. Things changed last Christmas, a new bigger supermarket had opened just near it which I had blog previously. Since then only few people shop to the old one, stocks where smaller and before there are three people working in the supermarket but after our vacation in Sri Lanka they are gone, those old couple supersede them whom I am referring maybe the owner.
I feel bad for them, the old supermarket is family own and the new one is company own(because they are in uniform). How I wish, the new supermarket is gone.

Kimchi also spelled gimchi, kimchee, is one of numerous traditional Korean pickled dishes made of vegetables with varied seasonings. Its most common manifestation is the spicy baechu (cabbage) variety. Kimchi is the most common banchan, or side dish, in South Korea and many South Korean communities and locales. Kimchi is also a common ingredient and combined with other ingredients to make dishes such as kimchi stew (kimchi jjigae) and kimchi fried rice (kimchi bokkeumbap). Kimchi is so ubiquitous that the Korea Aerospace Research Institute (KARI) developed space kimchi to accompany the first Korean astronaut to the Russian-manned space ship Soyuz.
