Speaking of coping with the heat, you know it's hot in Seoul when your Pepero chocolate comes melted, resulting in one large clump of chocolate covered sticks--and that's from a vending machine! These poor packs of Pepero probably felt the wrath of the sticky weather during transport in the back of a truck.
Anyways, one of the kids in my Tuesday/Thursday classes, Jenny, always shows up early. She lives five minutes away so she just comes early to hang out. I told Jenny that if she was willing to go to the vending machine on the second floor (where TGI Friday's is located) to buy me Pepero, I would buy her a box too. So I handed her 1400w ($1.40) and off she went! Jenny's cute because she is so tiny (one day she'll break the 4 ft barrier). Her neck cramps when she is sitting at the front row and has to look up to see me (I'm about 6'2")! Her doctor has recommended that she sit in the back row--to avoid pain in the future and to get away from her crazy teacher.
So here we are, opening up our boxes of Pepero only to find this...a giant clump stuck together!
Just because they are melted and stuck together, that cannot stop the wrath of Gdog's hunger pangs. A few monster-sized bites and it was game over for this package of Pepero!
Any Pocky or Pepero fans out there? I used to buy Pocky in Chinatown when I was younger. How about you?
