Aloha to Korean Souvenirs!

A reminder of the conflict from Wikipedia

We have a winner from last week's blogs - Carol M!

My family is a winner as we received our first box from hubby in Korea ...

Ah!  The souvenirs from the DMZ (demilitarized zone) ...

... including the tacky magnet and golf balls!

Speaking of golf, he found these ball markers for my kids ... 

... and thought I might like the "hot pepper paste" from his Hawaiian Airlines flight.   That may be too hot for me!  Do you like hot spices?  sauces?  chili?   One randomly selected commenter wins a book choice from my convention stash.   This giveaway is open to all readers.  Comments are open through Saturday, September 29, 10 pm in Hawaii.  I'll post the winner on Sunday, September 30.

Stay tuned for hubby's pictures from the DMZ ...


  1. My sister has ref magnets of different places she asks from her friends who've visited different countries and cities. They look really cool. Anyway, yup I love hot spices. They don't just challenge me, but they add a certain flavor to the ordinary foods that I eat.

  2. Congrats on receiving your first box from your hubby in Korea. That must have been fun to get. As for spices, I'm not really into hot spices/sauces. I'm a little better with being able to eat some medium/hot spices, but overall, no....I'll just stick with more bland food, and there is always chocolate.

  3. I can't handle really spicy food, but I like sweet chili sauce.

  4. I am not a big fan of spicy food. They put holes in my tongue.

  5. I used to love spicy foods...but not anymore. :(

  6. Thank you, Kim!

    I wasn't raised on spicy food and I don't have a taste for it.

  7. Actually, I do like it. My husband introduced me to it. I may not want the very hottest level but medium high. Just enough that it makes my nose run lol.

  8. Congratulations, Carol! :)

    I'm not one for hot anything. Now my DH loves it. The hotter, the better for him. Wrinkling nose here, LOL!

  9. Congrats Carol!

    I used to like hot chicken wings, but I like them a little less spicey these days. If I can find a hot sauce that gives me the taste without all the HOT, I like that.

  10. I like it a little spicy.

  11. Very cool to get a package from hubby! I do enjoy spicy foods, just not over the top too hot.
