  • 2014 Global Seoul-Mates : Mission 1224

    Our Second Mission is conducted under the theme, “2014 Seoul Kimchi Making & Sharing Festival, My No. 1 Poster: Made by 192 Global Seoul-Mates.” Each person must create his/her own unique promotional poster that fulfills the criteria required. As a Global Seoul-mate from the Philippines, I used a picture of kimchi with Adobo which is our national food and one of the saucy comfort foods that make up much in the Filipino culinary tradition. It is made of meat simmered in a marinate of vinegar, soy sauce, and garlic. Traditionally, it is accompanied by a Filipino side dish of sweet pickled green papaya called “atsara” and white rice, and as a replacement to atsara, I paired it with Kimchi which is one of the staple Korean side dishes and it matches well. A fusion of Filipino-Korean cuisine; always having a piece of Seoul (Korea) with Kimchi in my home. I also used a picture of Kimchi used in a Hangul way design, representing the unique and vibrant city of Seoul and its rich culture and tradition, where past and present coexist.
