Grocery shopping

Went for my monthly Korean grocery shopping yesterday. As usual, it was actually more like snacks than food. haha! Ok, I did try to buy rice (I was harbouring the thought of doing Bibimbap this Sunday). But they didn't have any available so not my fault.

I love the chocopie. hehe! Actually eating Chocopie always reminds me of 2 shows.

My Name is Kim Sam Soon
In Ep 13, after Sam Soon climbed the Hanllu mountain on her birthday, she found Ji Heon waiting for her. At first, she ignores him, but when she heard that he has food, she couldn't resist it. He offered her some chocopie and she said something like, "who brings chocopie to the top of a mountain?" He then replied that chocopie taste the best up there in the mountain.

It was one of the many funny scenes, mostly because her expression was so funny when she asked for the food.

The Way Home
The other is in The Way Home, one of the best Korean movie that I've watched. The grandson, a spoilt city brat kept pestering the grandmother for chocopie, KFC and other food. In the end, I think he sold something of hers to buy the things he like. But it was a good ending. Very touching. Btw, this little boy, Yoo Seung Ho is now all grown up and is a teenager now. He will have a new movie soon and will also be acting as the younger version of BYJ in Tae Wang Sa Shi Gi. Looks like he may become another heart-throb when he grows older... ^^

The shop supervisor was very nice and gave me lots of little extra things to try. This is one of them- Custard cake

But hmmm..... it's only so-so.. as it's quite dry and not enough custard in it. But quite soft. Will check out the other little packages later. Hehe! Feels lik Christmas.

And yes, I am having a chocopie now even as I write this. hahaha!
