You see this salad here? It is entirely made up of veggies and sprouts that my mom grew herself! Amaaazing.

Here are some organic strawberries that my mom ordered from the Han Salim (organic co-op) website. Wow, let me tell you, these strawberries were incredible. Super sweet, firm yet juicy texture... divine.

Oh, and watch this really gorgeous video about Korea! It reminds me of a Sigur Ros music vid, and i can't stop replaying it. :) There are days when I wish I could escape life here, but videos like this remind me of all the great things of this country. Have a great Sunday night!
