Annyeong, friends!
My relationship with Korean foods started when I slowly got more serious about the world of Korean drama back when I was in high school. Like seriously, who won't start salivating and craving to try their foods especially when you're binge-watching a show that's showing those yummy looking foods in the middle of the night? Starting from the basics like trying ramyun, tteokbokki, and gimbap at Korean restaurants, now my Korean food adventure has gone up to another level since I've actually started cooking them at home. My favourite go-to meal these days? Homemade Sundubu Jjigae or also known as the Korean Soft Tofu Stew.  It's just yummy, fulfilling (low carb!) and the perfect comfort food for me. More importantly, they're relatively easy to make too.

How about kimchi?

Oh, that's like super basic stuff. I love kimchi! Now, my love for those delicious fermented vegetables has also been picked up by my family members including my mom. Tried making some at home too and thankfully they turned out great! My brother and my mom loves the good ol' style Baechu kimchi that is made from cabbage and I personally love the crunchiness of Kkakdugi which is a Diced Radish Kimchi. I also had my own hands-on experience of making the Oi Sobagi, the Cucumber Kimchi which was greatly enjoyed by my family too.

My point is? Korean dishes are fun and easy to make (mostly) as long as you have the passion and interest in them. And if you are, this hobby of yours might be your ticket to win up to RM4000 and a chance to be sponsored for an All Expense Paid Round Trip to Korea!
