“Nope, but it doesn’t feel that way,” I responded, smiling.
From Jun, three new things:
1 – I opened the very first Korean restaurant, a takeaway joint, in Flanders: Rice House.
Aside from finances, Rice House is helping me share some of the Korean culture through food and conversations, with people here in Belgium. There are people still who associate Korea with only Kim Jong Un. Korea is about more than the division between North and South Korea. This is important to me because my son is half-Korean and at barely two-and-a-half, he recognizes already the Korean flag which adorns so much of Rice House.
At home I raise Noah as a trilingual child of mixed heritage, but Rice House now makes it easier to show that to him in a real way.
I’m grateful to @Hidden_Gold for making me aware of Jun Song aka @JunDishes. See, I don’t watch Big Brother so I otherwise might have missed out on the fun that is Jun, her tweets and her excellent blog.
Jun has done a lot more in her young life beyond winning Big Brother. She has been an investment banker and entrepreneur, and now she’s living in Belgium where she is wife to Davy, mom to Noah (CUTE!) and writing her first book.
More to come, I’m quite sure.

@JunDishes: 1. “Do-er” because I can be lazy sometimes. 2. “Grow-er” because I always want more. 3. “Show-er” because instant gratification should never die.
