Trip #4: Vietnam

Trip #4: Vietnam

Hey y'all!!! If you follow me on Insta then you probably saw that I just came back from Vietnam a few weeks ago and let me tell you, it was AMAZING. When I told people I was going to Vietnam a lot of them were like first, "Are you Vietnamese?" Lol which no, I'm Chinese, and then next they were like "that's so random." Which I do think Vietnam isn't a typical vacation destination, but I think that's what made it so special and I definitely think it should be a more mainstream vacation spot because it is incredible!!!! I learned so much about Vietnam's history, the war (which I realized I knew nothing about) and a lot about their culture!

Plaid 3 Ways

Plaid 3 Ways

Hello to all my plaid friends!!!! First let's start off with a little clarification. Plaid vs Flannel. Easily and mistakenly used often interchangeably, but I'm going to clear it up once and for all. Plaid is a pattern, while flannel is a material. Most of the plaid shirts I own are flannel, but I usually just call them "plaids" because I'm not quite sure what the material criteria for a flannel shirt entails. Anyway, moving on!

Food Diary: Seoul, Korea

Food Diary: Seoul, Korea

Hello foodies!!!! As you might have read from my last post which you can find here, I visited Korea over winter break and it was amazing!!!! I love food so much and I was so excited for the cuisine on our trip and it didn't disappoint!! I thought a lot about how to organize this post because really more than half of my pictures from the trip were all of food. I have always loved Korean food and I was pleasantly surprised that the food in Korea was pretty similar to Korean food I've had in Texas. Of course the street food was totally new and probably my favorite part of the cuisine. I decided to organize this post by meals, street food, market foods, and then a kind of miscellaneous.
