Kimchi School, Seoul Korea

Other than Nami Island, Kimchi School is also another must-go place in the tour of South Korea.

Day 3, at Kimchi School, we got to experience Kimchi making session, which was taught by a Korean gentlemen in Korean. Our tour guide was standing next to him, helping him to translate his speech into English.
My girls were so excited attending their very first culinary class. After watching the teacher's demonstration on making kimchi, it was our turn putting chili paste in between every piece of cabbages, and then wrapping it around.
These were the outcome of our first Kimchi making. Papa made the nicest kimchi among us, you agree?
After the Kimchi making session, at the same place, we were allowed to wear Hanbok,  for the photographing session.

My two girls had fun experiencing the Korean princess's Traditional Costumes. They also had lots of fun laughing at other tour members trying out Hanbok.
Because most of us do not have that kind of typical Korean's face; small eyes and fair skin, we could look quite awkward when putting on their Traditional Costumes.
This is my most satisfying family portrait in Korean Traditional Costume. All our costumes were chosen and matched by the lady staff there.

None of us brought back the kimchi that we made. We left it there, and it would be packed and given to the nearby orphanage home later.

  19. We bought their ready made Kim Chi and it tasted lousy. It is better to buy from our local Korean grocery shop. Your kids looked cute in the Hanbok!
