Vegan's Chronicles + [vegan product]

Trying to keep myself busy...

It's another rainy day here in Seoul... . what's new. I really can't wait for all this rain and sticky humidity to be over, and for it to be fall~ my favorite season!

Anyway~ so now that I've found my future apartment, I just have to gradually start packing up all the junk that I've accumulated over the past 4 years, and then move out on Sept 3rd! Well, that's still a few weeks away, so there's no rush.

Apart from planning for my eventual moving-out date, lately, I've been spending my time baking for orders, running whenever it's not pouring rain, blogging, and doing a bit of design stuff. I've also been trying to get out of the house whenever I can to meet up with friends. I really love baking alone in my kitchen while old episodes of 'Parks and Recreation' play in the background, but I also need to interact with other humans so that I don't turn into a lonely hermit!

Yesterday, I got some coffee with my favorite coworker unnie, Yanna. She ordered cookies from me a while back and shared some with her tutor kid who liked them, so she ordered more! :) Hehe, it's such a great compliment when a kid says they like my food~

Here are some thin mints for Yanna~ The thin mint cookies now come in square-form! This translates to a slightly more wafer cookie surface area to be covered in minty chocolate. hehe.

Oh, and what do you think of my new sticker design for my bake shop packaging? They arrived today and I can't wait to stick them on everything... .

Here's some tropical biscotti I baked, using fine coconut shreds and a mix of dried papaya and pineapple bits. The recipe is a work in progress... .

Last but not least, the other day I found this soy yogurt drink at Lotte Department Store, and as far as I can tell, there is no dairy or D3 lurking in the ingredients list. Anyone care to double-check it for me?

I'm not 100% sure that it's vegan, but I'm really hoping it is! Vegemil used to have a similar soy yogurt drink, but it had vitamin-D3 in it, so I stopped buying it.

This was quite a delicious, refreshing drink, and it had the familiar sour yogurty flavor that I miss so much. I really love yogurt, whether it is the drinkable or spoonable type, and I think it's important to get those healthy live probiotic cultures in your system, you know, to promote digestive health and um, stay regular~
