Over the past week and a half, I've attempted to make an effort to be more aware of what I consume. Even started a food/exercise log. I'm a little worried that may go completely down the drain upon MC's arrival.
Thanks to Dan over at Seoul Eats, along with a bit of Googling (or shall I say Navering?) and friends' recommendations, I've already started an itinerary. Rather than "visit Namsan Tower" or "check out a palace," the list revolves around, you guessed it, good eats. Expect lots of food in the coming blogs... lots of it.
MC and I have been known to do random taste tests (i.e. best packaged oatmeal raisin cookie; most refreshing bottled water) and fun reviews (really, just excuses to dine out), and have accumulated quite a few OpenTable points in our day... and I don't see that changing in a week-long visit to Korea. This should be fun. ^^
I've already begun preparations for the ride from Incheon to Seoul...
Aren't I a good pal? I've done a nice job clearing out the Kinder Bueno stock at the local convenience store. I wonder where I can buy these in bulk? Costco maybe? They're quite $$$ at $1.40 a pop.
Speaking of which, I bonded over chocolate, hazelnut, and the wonderful Ferrero brand with the someone I had met for the first time yesterday. There are only so many people in the world who appreciate such conversation.
On a related note, I thought this was an interesting concept...
I think it'd certainly make the chocolate bar experience a lot more fun and communal. "Hey, you want the 70 or 50 cal piece?"
