I’ll never forget the moment of joy when I got the first subscriber for the first time on YouTube. “Oh my god, someone approves of my cooking ability!” From that time on I felt like I shouldn’t disappoint her! :)

Yesterday I eventually got 5,000 subscribers on YouTube! My 5000th subscriber was Sarah living in California. I decided to blog about her. I sent her email to ask whether or not she wants me to blog about her.

My name is Sarah and I am 16 years old. I am currently a junior in high school and I work part time in a Sanrio store. The only time I eat Korean food is when my friend cooks it for me. I love the taste of Korean food and instead of always bugging her to cook for me, I decided to learn how to make some for myself :] . Even though I know how to cook Filipino food, I wanted to impress and please my parents with newly acquired cooking skills … hehe… This is when I came across your channel, Maangchi! yay! Unlike other Korean cooking tutorials, you make things very easy to understand and I adore your personality! I have learned a lot from your videos and I’ve recently tried some of your recipes, too (although i still need to work on them >_<). hehe. I’m looking forward to learning more from you, Maangchi!
