I made japchae for a korean food picnic recently. When I visited my counselor friend recently, I said, we talked about the korean picnic I organized. She wasn’t able to come, but she was interested in the kinds of food I prepared. She even asked the recipe for japchae, so I explained it to her. And then I remembered that I spilled some of the japchae “sauce” on one of my notebooks. And so I said, “Oh, Ms. Counselor, you’re interested in japchae right? I couldn’t save you any, but I spilled some sauce on my notebook. Maybe you’d like to smell it? haha” And she did. She said it smelled delicious and was different from ordinary noodles. I thought it was a little funny.
