Celebrating Seollal – Happy Korean New Year!

In Korea, we don’t celebrate New Year’s (Seollal also known as 설날) like the western counterpart of the world does.

I’ve noticed that not many people seem to know much about how Koreans welcome in the new year, so I thought it would be a good way to share our culture with the world – through food.

Before we go on, however, a quick tidbit for you!

The Korean New Year marks the first day of the Korean lunar calendar. It is undoubtedly one of Korea’s most significant holidays, and it spans for a period of 2-3 days of eating, visiting relatives and reuniting with loved ones.

November Beauty Haul

So, it’s December already! How time flies – it seemed like only yesterday when I was bidding farewell to my Blogtober shenanigans (which you can read here). November was INSANE, with helpless me trying to juggle school, working out, making time to blog and attempting to up my social life game all at the same time.

On the plus side, it brought along a whirlwind of sales, with multiple retail platforms dropping price tags like crazy, mainly thanks to 11/11 (Single’s Day) promotions and the usual Black Friday + Cyber Monday madness.

FinTech Festival Singapore 2017 Experience
