The Lovely Gen: Can we pop into the market? I want to get some short boots. (Fake Ugg boots, ankle height)
Me: Sure... (not excited at all, hate shopping)
*Bus to Daiso, buy random crap, cross the road to the market*
TLG, looking at boots: What colour should I get?
TLG: Do you like them?
TLG: Ok fine, I won't get them. You hate them.
Me: No babe, get them! I don't have to wear them! The brown ones!
TLG: No, it's fine. I don't want them.
|These aren't the boots she wanted!|
*walks away, further into market*
Me: Ooh, look at all this garlic! (Whip out phone, take pics with camera)
TLG: Let's get tomatoes! (Buys a big bag for 2000 Won/R14)
*Continue to take photos of everything, mostly stuff I'll never buy/eat, ever. Like Kimchi and rice cakes. Bleh!*
|Smile and say kimchiiiiiiiii!|
|More pickled/spicy things|
|Rice cakes. Very pretty, but too chewy/tasteless for me|
TLG: Gross, this fish smell is making me naar (Afrikaans for nauseated)! Can we leave now?
Me: Ok, sure. (Continue taking photos, Koreans annoyed/amused)
TLG: Ok... let's go...
|What do you call a fish without an eye? Fsh!|
|Instant allergic reaction, just looking at this!|
|Octopi, non-moving ones|
|Meat-on-a-stick, kimbap, ddeokbokki|
|Pillows. The kids' section was further down.|
|Hand-made noodle man|
|Ajummas and flowers|
|Radishes. It was a huge bunch, the photo is deceptive|
|A colourful array of veggies|
|Yummy fish! Custard-filled heart attacks!|
|Red Hot Chilli Peppers|
|Rice, in all colours|
Me: Babe! Here are your boots, let's get them!
TLG: *silence, walks towards bus stop*
