I Uttered My First Korean Word Today!

Nothing much to write but nonsense today. LOL

I'm just being proud of myself for uttering my first Korean word to the nice Korean lady at the Food Gardens food court. I said "Kam-sa-ham-ni-da" to her instead of merely mouthing "thank you". Kinda felt guilty because she made the effort to say a few Malay words to us (she wrote them down in a piece of paper), apart from the extra food she gave us when we were there. This time she gave a bowl of iced watermelon to Raimie.

Next, I need to learn to confidently say "delicious" to her in Korean.

  2. should be "masshi soyo" for delicious! I learned Korea by myself because if you know Japanese, it's easier to learn Korean! XD

  13. @kruel74,
    True, but to tell you the truth, apart from a handful, I hate Korean dramas. Too sappy.

    But I love their silly gameshows. :)

  22. @foong,
    less visit there already nowadays esp since Zaini doesn't take rice at all anymore.

    I probably go there once or twice a month only, but she still remembers us. :)

    After all these years surrounded by Cantonese speaking people, I still can't utter a single word convincingly. :D
