Yay! I’m a winner of the competition!

By Maangchi

As I mentioned through my twitter a while ago, I am the one of the winners of the “Blog Korea, visit Korea” competition. The prize LG netbook (LGX12) arrived at home a few days ago.

iphone and netbook


The cute and small computer was packed tightly enough to be unbreakable even if it were dropped from a few meters high.

Now I have 3 computers: my desktop, laptop, netbook, and 1 iphone!

I don’t think I can find any excuse for not reading my emails unless I try really hard.

Oh, besides the netbook, they sent me other presents: sun shade for a car, a frisbee , travel neck pillow, and picnic mat.

I am already excited about my next trip with this cute netbook and the neck pillow!


my notebook

Sometimes people ask me what I use to make this website. These days I use that Dell laptop for all of it, even video editing. It’s A Dell Studio with a “seaweed” skin by Mike Ming.

When I first started making cooking videos, I used the video function of a Sony DCS-50 digital camera for filming, and Premiere Elements to edit. A year ago I got a Panasonic SDR-57 camera as a gift, and I learned how to use Premiere Pro for editing. Just last week I got a new camera, a Canon Vixia HF11. So my next video will look great!

    How do you like your netbook Maangchi? I like the idea of them but they screen might be too small. Korean windows looks interesting.

    I hope we can start seeing HD video. HD makes cooking look so much better. The netbook looks nice.
