My friend who lives near New Malden came to visit me yesterday.

She brought me a fresh bunch of Korean spring cabbage from a Korean shop in New Malden.

Korean Spring cabbage is called ‘Erl-ga-ri’ and it is perfect for making a quick kimchi.

When I finish making a tub of kimchi, I feel that I don’t envy anyone in the world!

Power of plants

It is not only a reddish pink tulip flower you can admire but also the same colour bulb near the ground. So bend your knees to closer towards the ground to admire the beauty of nature.

Can you guess how many different types of greens in this bamboo tray?

These are picked from my back garden this morning.

I am going to make them into a quick salad like a cheat version of kimchi called ‘겉저리 got-geri’.

There are 8 different types of greens all together.

They are perpetual spinich, beet leaf, dandelion leaf,

spring onion, summer mooli leaf, chives, purple broccolie, fennel.

Blue sky, mild breeze and handful of greens in your hand…

What can you expect more this morning?
