Multiculturalism in Action!

Tonight the eldest came home with a cookbook given to her by her teacher. She stated emphatically that she was the only one in the class to get it.

A quick look at the cover and I knew it was all about promoting multiculturalism. A quick look at the recipes and I knew it was basic stuff for south east Asian wives on how to prepare simple foods for their husbands and kids.

Still, it was pretty glossy and nice. You have to appreciate how the government is working hard to promote Korea abroad, by obviously spending a large amount of money to welcome foreign women who marry largely loser Korean men.

I shouldn't sound bitter, since it really is a good thing. And I learned a new way to make kimchi pancakes, since the recipes are also written in English!

If only they'd provide a guide on how to fully own your own business as a waeg, I'd be sailin'.

You should cook something for the class.

Cook one of the recipes for all the kids, appear all smiles at the school to share it... That would earn a lot of cred wouldnt it.

As long as you say you aren't sure how spicy it is, just that it is too spicy for you. Haha.
