I'VE recently had an attack of the blues. Muscle pain, tiredness and general 'meh-ness' has left me rather unproductive in recent weeks. Until yesterday. The mojo is back and the baking cogs were turning. I'VE always had a hankering to try Madelines and I've always found then a little heavy and dry. My answer? My… Continue reading This Geeky Kitchen | The Madeline Experiment #1
HERE we are again. Already time for the second favourites (and if we're lucky this will go up on the correct Wednesday). I've played around the the format a little! Hope you like it! FOOD / DRINK AN old favourite and a new one this month. The old favourite is Coffee Travel (커피여행) way out… Continue reading This Months Bests | May 2017
THE sun has arrived in Korea! The weather is becoming deliciously warm and that means trips. Upon seeing photos, one half of the parental unit declared that I was on a permanent holiday - I like to see it as living in a place where the sun actually shines when it's suppose to, and where it's… Continue reading These Geeky Adventures | Boseong & Yeosu
I have a silly amount of photos from various trips I've taken around Korea, so I've decided to post them, in no particular order. The first of these is going to be a trip a friend and I took to Andong in October 2016. ANDONG is known for its Folk Festival, held in October every year,… Continue reading Throwback Thursday: Andong
I'VE thrown teaching materials at you for some weeks now, and thought it was time to take a pause and talk about how and why I came to be in Korea in the first place. Perhaps you're looking into Korea yourself, or perhaps you are simply interested in other peoples stories. Whatever the reason, I… Continue reading ESL | Why Korea?
IT'S that time of year again! In Jinhae the cherry blossoms are out, and Busker Busker's Cherry Blossom Ending is back in the charts. Again. Although, personally, my favourite Spring song is Roy Kim's 봄봄봄 (spring, spring, spring). JINHAE is home to the biggest and most well known of all the cherry blossom festivals in… Continue reading 봄봄봄
WE'VE another wee friend with us today - they're not just for school purposes! I'M rather fond of this wee chap! I made my first Red Velvet Cake a year ago in April 2017. I'd offered to make a friends birthday cake, any kind they liked. Their favourite was Red Velvet, a cake I have… Continue reading This Geeky Kitchen | Adventures in Red Velvet
AFTER years of simply writing everything onto the board in chalk, and not having labels to take from class to class, I'm seriously upping my game this school year. It was in class with one of my Co-Teachers, after greatly admiring her sub-heading labels, that I decided to make my own set. Not sure… Continue reading Look + Listen
PREVIOUSLY, I posted a number of PPT games that I like to use in classes, but now I'm turning to the more traditional board game, and a classic at that. I remember playing hours and hours of snakes and ladders as a child - I have no idea if the board is still at home,… Continue reading Stay Away From The Snakes!
TOAST has made some friends in the last few weeks! WITH his new friends have come more labels, this time for around the classroom, although you could use them for the board too! THESE were made to be used in a Korean English classroom, hence the one sign in Korean - I figured one for… Continue reading Toast and the Gang | 2.0
