Kimchi Story

I am currently living in a village of about 1000 people with one small grocery store which has a limited selection. The grocery store is owned by a Korean couple who I know live in Ottawa, which is about 70 miles east of here. Today I asked her if she could bring in some Kim Chi and I would buy it. She said, "You don't want that stuff. I'll make you some." I have to go back Thursday to pick up my home made Kim Chi from the grocery store owner. I'll post a review when I get it....

can't wait to hear the reviews, rock.

don't forget to receive it with both hands (all transactions should be done with 2 hands, even if 1 hand just touches the wrist of the other) and say kam sah hom nee dah.

if she calls you rock-ya, that means you're a close friend.

They make the best Kimchi. Although Kimchi from Costco is not bad either...

Yes. Say Kam Sah Hahm Nee Dah, which means thank you. It will impress and please her.

My partner is Korean with a family food business do we have the worlds best kimchi around most of the time.

I've made it, too, but theirs is much better.

For that, I'd trade you several dozen farm-fresh eggs. Lucky you, I love kimchi! Oh, if the person is in Ottawa, maybe I could trade her farm-fresh eggs for kimchi?

Lucky you Rock! Do you also talk to staff at shops? I get loads of stuff but I think it might be because I chat to everyone and remember their names etc. People are really nice when you're friendly.
