For the past couple of weeks, the whole family has been going through ups and downs with a cold. Either one would get it and one would come out of a cold but the cycle would repeat, over and over again. Right now Andrea has had a runny nose for a couple of weeks and Josh would be on and off. Kaden has already been sick for about a week and I have a runny nose now too.
While talking to my friend Julia, I told her about Vick’s Vapo Rub and how it doesn’t seem to be working for our family. It used to work really well for us back when we were in Singapore. But I don’t know if it’s the weather here in Seoul or the haze but, it just doesn’t work. Then Julia mentioned Euky Bearub.
It’s been a while since I was able to sit down while the kids took their naps and have a cup of coffee.
I’ve been really happy with the use of my JAEHYO mugs. They are light, easy to clean, and most importantly, they are beautiful.
Every morning is another exciting morning for a beautiful cup of coffee.
Josh and I went and got our hair done today. We both got haircuts done at the same place but different times of the day.
Hair designer ARA is our hair stylist and she’s really good at what she does.
SANLIZZ Hair is located at Shin Keum Ho Station (line number 5) and is open from Monday – Sunday 10:30 am to 9 pm.

Josh getting his hair done and not crying. For children’s haircuts they charge 10000 won (approximately $10 dollars) and for women’s haircuts they charge 18000 won (approximately $18 dollars).
Ever since I started to measure my blood glucose levels at home, I used the Care Sens N Voice monitor that the clinic gave me (or more like I rented from them). I found a deal on coupang.com for this Care Sens N monitor for 19900 won KRW.
It came with the monitor, 10 needles, and 10 strips.
I found that most monitors are around the 50000 won – 70000 won range and between the 30000 won – 40000 won range for less expensive ones. They all seem to work pretty much in the same way. You poke the finger tip with the needle/pencil (I call it a pencil) and place your finger at the tip of the testing strip. The strip will literally suck your blood into the testing area of the strip to test your blood glucose level. It only takes about 5 seconds for the results.
A few weeks ago, I was cleaning the house and wanted to clean the air purifier that our in-laws were using. I noticed that it was a bit dirty on the outside so I decided to take it apart, clean it and change the filters. I found out that we didn’t have any filters left for it and that the machine itself, AKA, the inside area where the air passes to come out was so dirty that there had been mold build up on the machine itself. I called the AS center and they said that the machine itself wasn’t made for cleaning on the inside (the area that I was describing to them) and that it would just be safer for us to get a new air purifier.
We used SHARP’s air purifier for over 7 years and I think it was time to go.
Kaden said that LG’s PuriCare had good ratings and that we could get a good deal on it if we bought it through Kaden’s work/affiliates site.
So we looked through the ratings, carefully read through the feedback that people wrote and decided to the LG PuriCare.
It arrived in the box 2 days later. It’s amazing how fast the Korean delivery system is.
Crayola Kids’ Flossers.
They smell great and are shaped in such a way that it makes it easy for the kids to floss.
Yesterday, Kaden and I went to ITAEWON to have the famous “Original Chicago Pizza” A.K.A. Deep Dish Pizza.
Open 12:00 / Closed 23:00 / Last Order 22:00

The interior design of the 5th floor was… interesting.
Each table had a log on the table to place the pizza dish, once it was served.
Every table was separated by fence-like walls that were built up.
The menu was a bit worn out. I guess the “vintage” design and worn out paper was their concept(?) maybe.
Each log had their logo on it.
This year I made a calendar with the kids’ pictures for us. I actually wanted to do this when Josh was born but really didn’t have the time or effort to make this. I think I was just lazy until now.
This year I knew I had a bunch of good pictures to choose from so I went onto http://www.snaps.co.kr and went through the design templates that they had to create our 2017 calendar.
All the design templates weren’t right on point with me. Or I’m just really messed up and can’t pick a design. So I chose a blank design sheet and created a simple calendar design.
So about a week ago, Kaden and I went to this new place right near my in-laws place called DAE GI MI HAK.
It’s a Korean BBQ place that only sells pork meat. They do the dry aging process to the meat and the price for a two person dinner set was 28000 WON.
Pretty nice for two people. 28 bucks for a dinner meal? Hey, I’m up for that!
So when we went in it was on a Friday night so we had to wait a bit. There are only about 10 tables and they were all full.
Now, the cool thing about this place was that the burner and the table itself was like an induction system by itself.
They just placed the ceramic plate or dish that you cook the meat on, right on the table and that became the burner.
