  1. I am a wife and mother of two boys and I live in Christchurch, New Zealand.
    We recently suffered a 6.8 fatal earthquake in my city, there were many International students that lost their lives in the city because an English school collapsed. i wish to convey my condolences to those family members whom lost loved ones.
    I became interested in Korean and Asian food at a young age because my Dad loved to cook it and when I got married my husband discovered that he was lactose intolerant ans so began my google search for dairy-free recipes and I came across this site. It is great and I have learnt many wonderful things and now we eat Korean style recipes 2-3 times a week !

  2. Hi annienz - I am also from New Zealand (Wellington). I joined the site a couple of months ago and have been cooking Korean like crazy! I love the food (especially Maangchi's recipes) and think I will eat Korean forever now.

    We were all so shocked by the earthquake in Christchurch. My website raised $8,000 for Red Cross when it happened. Hopefully the quakes are over now and the long journey of returning to normal life can begin.

  3. Wow $8000 that's great, we are hearing stories of people donating and it is great ! It is hard to see images of the city I grew up in so destroyed. My children will not know Christchurch as I did, with it beautiful old buildings and a town center that had so much character. It is very good to know that people are donating to help re-build these building, I think it is important otherwise tourists won't come back to our lovely city :) Thank you
    p.s. I too love Korean food now and we eat it at home and out all the time :)

  4. Sorry to Hear of the Quake in NZ ! That is Awful! I am Happy You Found Maangchi's Site though ! She has so Many Delicious Recipes. I Love all of the Recipes !

  5. Yes she has ! I recently found a Korean restaurant near our house and it is NOT damaged ! yeah so I went with a friend for a email and it was amazing ! So good to try things I had seen on this site! Makes me braver to try making things at home :)
