We all have vices

I have a huge sweet tooth.

400 won.
150 calories.
The only downside is having to walk out of McDonald's smelling faintly of grease and fried foods.

Others enjoy the drink. Those soju ads I blogged about last month are in my neighborhood, too.

Some people have a taste for blood.

Even if I was a pork eater, the idea of looking a pig in the face while buying a slab of his flesh might turn me off.

Many people are addicted to gum.

It's only when you watch people chewing gum -- not when you're doing it yourself -- that you realize what an unattractive habit it is. Xylitol completely dominates the market here. There's a bigger selection of Xylitol at the grocery store than bread. No joke.

Wow, I just realized that I haven't had a piece of gum since moving to Korea 10.5 months ago.

Thankfully, loving beauty is not a vice.

Although greed IS and I need a new pair of sneakers. Mine have been around the world and are fraying in awkward places. Suggestions?

What's your biggest vice?


  1. Invest in a pair of Pumas and you won't look back. However, I can't help but think you would be a Keds girl ... or, of course, wearing some pair of cute flats by Sam Edelman.

  2. My last sneakers were Pumas -- definitely a flats girl but you gotta break out sneakers once in a while. Not sure how running in flats goes... ;)

  3. Any Nike or Saucony sneakers are good. Sometimes you just need a pair of sneakers that is durable and provides comfort when you're walking around a lot.

    Love your blog!


  4. I'm with you on the sweet tooth! The ice cream looks good!! :)
