KIMCHI x KALLALOO forms key collaborations for 2018!

Korean Ambassador Lee, Action Quan, (Juan Carlos Latchman), Sarina Bland, Hyebin Honf=g

Last month Heaven and I (Sarina) were invited, alongside Trinidad’s K-Pop Ambassador DJ “Action Quan”, to lunch with  South Korea’s Ambassador Lee . It’s been a fun ride so far working on this project and seeing it grow. Can’t wait to show you all more of what we have in the works! So proud of all that our little project has achieved and fostered in its short time and the collaborations it is bringing about. I am also thrilled to share that we’ve also been picked up for a third season by the South Korean Embassy!

Thanks so much to all of you who have shared words of support along the way and who pop onto our InstaLives! It really makes our day! KimKats 화이팅! 😸

Korean Care Packages

from Instagram:
Yesterday marked the one year anniversary of my father’s death. It was a tough time (still is) but made more bearable by the support I received unexpectedly from Korean friends I had made online. One in particular sent me this care package of treats, novelties and even a cookbook (that I use at least once a week!)
#tbt #Repost @sarinanow ・・・ Just received my very first Korean care package! So awesome! I am so overwhelmed and surprised by the caring shown by my friends over there! So much to eat through now haha. Who wants to help me? Will share those treats over on @trinigourmet 진짜 대박!!! 정말 말 고마워요 Sean씨!! 🇹🇹🇰🇷🙌🏽 감사합니다 한국인 친구들!

Welcome to Kimchi x Kallaloo!


Hey everyone! I’m so excited to click Publish on this Post. It seems like only 2 months ago (probably because it was) that I was sitting at Heaven’s table telling her that one of my dreams was to increase awareness and interaction between Koreans and Trinbagonians.

Starting a vlog was her idea and of course being Type A I then had to supercharge the venture. ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ

I’m going to try to get her to post her thoughts on this project as well, and hopefully become a regular blog contributor too. So stay tuned!

There is a lot that we have coming up in the works. In fact I am rushing this down right now to head off to our next round of interviews! But when I get back you can look forward to a scene by scene breakdown of our Intro Video. I packed in tons of goodies for everyone.  video

이따 봐요! ^^
(see ya soon!)

p.s I’ll try to do my posts in both Korean and English. Of course I’m still a beginner so I hope you native speakers will be kind 🙂 Hopefully you will be able to understand me 🙂
