I remember meeting Terry in March; He said; "Hello, nise too mit you! Ai am Terry." I laughed and shook his hand. That was pretty much the length of our conversation as he didn't speak much English at all. Well...he is here in Sydney at a language school with intention to learn; but he was just extremely quiet and shy back then. It's been months now; and I've gotten to know him a little more; now that his English is getting better ;) I heard he speaks more English after a couple of drinks too! *laughs*
A Big HappY Birthday greeting to Sung Hwan@Terry; a great dancer and extraordinary person!
*o...did I mention the sexy arms and biceps? *laughs*
Like most Korean boys; Terry loves his Soju. Soju with Korean food...and that's exactly what I made out of cake!
The assortment of food items were miniature but the soju cups were huge for a reason *wink*
The guys brought along a bottle of Soju as we walked up with the cake to give the blushing birthday boy 3 shots of his favourite drink! He was overjoyed and filled with mouthful's of thank-yous. I'm happy everyone thought the tiny food items were precious....I had fun making them too! reminded me of the old times when I messed with play-dough to make food and play 'cooking' *laughs*
The Korean words read: Chuk Saeng il;
Which is an abbreviated version of the long "Happy Birthday"
My favourite is definitely the hotpot!! The Korean hot pot was made from cake in the center as well. I was divided between making a Korean bbq hotplate or a hot pot stew....and decided the hotpot would be adorable with an egg in it! *giggle*
Dumplings!! Korean people call them "Mandu"; Japanese call them "Gyoza"
Kimchi!! You got to have kimchi if its Korean! ;)
Sang geup Ssal = thin Korean pork slices; barbequed and often eaten as a snack with alcoholic drinks.
Bowl of rice....
Korean sauces...chilli paste - gochujang ; soybean paste - denjang
Little pieces of beef looking meat?
I did the best I could with trying to make them look reasonably realistic. I'm glad everyone could at least tell the hot pot was a pot and the dumplings were "mandu's" :P
