Move to funspace?-- Antifly Merged with Infinity 23:27, 1 December 2009 (UTC)

Why? Isn't the recipespace for recipes?--Tom Moorefiat justitia 00:18, 2 December 2009 (UTC)
Sorry, I hadn't realized we even had a recipe space until after I commented. Ignore.-- Antifly Merged with Infinity 00:25, 2 December 2009 (UTC)
I could've sworn this said something else...TheoryOfPractice 00:38, 2 December 2009 (UTC)

Mrs. Practice made this last night.[edit]

and it was awesome. TheoryOfPractice (talk) 14:52, 6 December 2009 (UTC)

Really? That's great! I'm glad you liked it.--Tom Moorefiat justitia 18:34, 6 December 2009 (UTC)
Next time try it with beansprouts! YUM!--Dumpling (talk) 06:44, 4 October 2011 (UTC)
That's great, too! I actually toss in all kinds of stuff. Most vegetables work - even weird New Zealand ones like "oka."--ADtalkModerator 06:54, 4 October 2011 (UTC)
Never heard of that one, will have to look into that. If that's even available here. But yeah~ The great thing about most Korean have leftover stuff? JUST MAKE BIBIMBAP! Or Kimbap, or throw those veggies in with the kimchi-jjigae. And Kimchi can be eaten at any stage. --Dumpling (talk) 07:19, 4 October 2011 (UTC)
A friend once explained to me that she didn't like to eat bibimbap because it was poor people food, since it was what her parents had to eat when they were up in the mountains during the war. there is some weird Korean abhorrence of things that poor people do - there was maybe one used clothing shop in town, because no one ever bought anything used.--ADtalkModerator 07:22, 4 October 2011 (UTC)
Pretty much. A lot of Koreans don't like to admit it publicly, but everything we do is with extreme caution. Probably because we have toomuch pride. We don't want to have hand-me-downs. Looking like beggars, make us---make the family look like beggars. Everything we do, we do to save face, to keep family honor, dignity, and god-dammit, our pride. -siiiigh- Comparing between the generations, there's a big difference in philosophy (Mostly due to Western influence though), but whenever I go to visit, it shows. But I like bibimbap 'cause it's yummy...Ungggh. Now you've made me want to eat Korean food.--Dumpling (talk) 07:34, 4 October 2011 (UTC)
It costs about ten thousand dollars for an ounce of kimchi where I am now. Plus it's depressing knowing I will never have truly great Korean food again in my life (unless I go back to visit).
All the kids now are butterballs. Stuffing their faces with Coke and those crappy cookies and chips churned out by Ottogi and Lotte... seriously, a little pudge is reasonable but so many of the kids there need to be rolled from class to class as they eat their grainy poor-quality ice cream.--ADtalkModerator 07:38, 4 October 2011 (UTC)
UWA! Thankfully where I live there are lot of hal-moni's here, so they still handmake their traditional dishes, so I get my Korean dosage every once in a while. Thank goodness. I guess I'll try to get some recipes from them and post them up. :D Maybe you can try some on your own. Haha. Totally worth a try.
Aww man. I love Lotte stuff, but I don't eat them that much, because...well they're expensive here, mother says no, and I actually get sick if I eat too much junk food. But I'd have to agree. The younger generations are turning into little piggies. D: --Dumpling (talk) 07:46, 4 October 2011 (UTC)
Korean grandmothers are fierce and excellent cooks. If they armed them, then they wouldn't have to bother with the mines at the DMZ.
Why do you like Lotte snacks?! They are terrible! Maybe it's just how you're raised. To me, Korean chocolate is unpleasant in texture (granulated and wadded) and Korean chips are flavorless. I want the richness of Cadbury (or at least Hershey's), and those dumb "nacho" cheese chips in Hanguk are just sad when compared to the glory of a proper Dorito. Chips should leave your fingers as orange as the sunset.
Also it is important to note, if you ever teach, not to actually call any of the children "돼지". Or "배교자." Actually, there are many things you should not mutter about children.--ADtalkModerator 07:53, 4 October 2011 (UTC)
They're totally fierce...but they love me. So it's all good. Oh god. Put them at the DMZ, that would be amazing to see. RISE OF THE HAL-MONI!
Haha. I like the candy drops. If that counts. That and the mini biscuits. I don't eat chips in generals, so I'd have to take your word for it. And YES! Ugh. Their chocolate is gross. Even mum says so, and she's a picky lady.
Ah, I'll keep note of that. Though I know I'll be shooting curse words in my head. Korean kids these days are getting rude though. I'm currently teaching at a Korean School here, except, we're teaching Korean, because we don't want them to forget their language, but goodness. The ones straight from Korea need some work. I'm rather surprised at how much guts they have to even talk back to the teachers.--Dumpling (talk) 08:12, 4 October 2011 (UTC)
They're talking back to you?! One of the teachers at a school where I work used to make them kneel, then he'd hit the bottoms of their feet with a stick. THAT'll stop 'em from talking back! Also it's a little barbaric and I just took away their stickers.
I thought you were a student? You're doing both? AND still practicing a Korean instrument that'll break your back? Yeesh.--ADtalkModerator 08:22, 4 October 2011 (UTC)
They have quick tongue, the lil' buggers. Thankfully, I deal with first-second level, so my group is relatively young. I get the occasional older students as well (mostly non-Koreans that want to learn the language). It's basic alphabets, number, vocab, and beginning grammar. The other teacher adults are mostly like: "Respect your elders" and would make the kids stick their hands out and hit them with a ruler. Sometimes if they're really bad, clean and wax the dojo room---traditional style! ON YOUR HANDS AND KNEES! GO! DON'T SLIP!...Yeah.
Haha. I am a student. I'm only 19. And teaching Korean is only on the weekends on the early mornings. And practicing/teaching the Korean instrument is also part of the Korean School. We try to keep the kids to understand and appreciate their heritage. So besides just learning and speaking the language, we divide the sects to Music, Art, and P.E---Basically, traditional music, Calligraphy, and Korean Martial arts. Literature is 4-5 level.
It's like, extra school on the weekends for the kids enrolled. Because after Korean school, there's the tutoring---Korean style on doing math and stuff. Thankfully, I don't do that. I only help for Foreign language. --Dumpling (talk) 08:35, 4 October 2011 (UTC)
What the hell?! Get some goddamn sleep. I know Korean moms are all Battle Song of the Tiger Mother, but still...
This conversation has made me seriously miss Korea. My wife still does TKD three times a week, but that's about as Korean as it gets around here now. After two years and a bit spent scarfing down mandu and hiking the ragged Jeju oreums, it's sad to be gone. At least there's a PC-bang here in NZ for the immigrant kids who feel homesick and need a place to go and furtively look at porn.--ADtalkModerator 08:55, 4 October 2011 (UTC)
Hahaha. I don't sleep that much to being with, so I'm good. ;D
You and me both. TKD! I miss that. I miss Jeju. I miss Korea. Louisiana doesn't have much Koreans...or...Korean anything really. -siiigh- Hahaha. Wish they had a place here for immigrant kids who feel homesick. XD --Dumpling (talk) 09:09, 4 October 2011 (UTC)
