    Interesting post. I’ve always been interested about other Asian countries’ culture such as Korea and Japan. Chuseok is similar to the Mid-Autumn/Mooncake Festival celebrated by the Chinese. It’s on Sept. 12, too. I’m a Chinese living in the Philippines. We’ve just played the Mooncake dice game yesterday.:)

      hi Cher! same here… ang hirap. mas ayaw ko pag cash, haha! parang “huh? eto lang?” yung expression kase na makikita mo, LOL! ang hirap talaga.. haha. kaya sabi ni alex kahit wala na lang daw. tutal ako lang naman na-stress sa gift giving. ang sa akin lang, baka masabihan na porke “foreign wife” e walang pakialam sa “tradition.” kkk…

    “since we don’t need to travel to the province anymore.” – i guess your parents-in-law have moved to Seoul. Congrats!

    maybe you’ll post about accommodation in Korea someday? i’ve heard that if you want to buy a flat you have to make a deposit first, right? sounds quite complicated!

    happy upcoming holiday! + upcoming giveaway!!! =)

    Hi Ms. Betchay,

    I am a newbie here in Korea, just got here 1 month ago. I cant wait for chuseok as it would be my 1st time to experience it. Im planning to prepare a non Korean dessert this weekend but i dont have any idea on what or how, (sigh)!

      Hi Lian! Just think positively in case your husband’s family is very traditional. If they ask you do so many things, just think that you’re doing it out of love ;p
