8 (Sat) August 2015
from Yangjagang [delivery]
with the wife
Summer Vacation, Day 8 (see previously 6.214 Lobsters, for My Babies).
2 full weeks with the wife and kids, the longest together since I relocated to Manila. 1 week in the Philippines — DONE — followed by 1 week in Korea. We arrived this afternoon. I fly back next Saturday.
For dinner, we ordered in from our go-to Chinese delivery joint (see most recently 6.180 Japtangbap).
The term “nanja wans (난자완스)” is the Koreanized pronunciation of “nanjianwanzi = southern (nan) pan-fried (jian) meatball (wanzi).”
More interestingly, “jian = 煎 = 전 = jeon,” which I’d always assumed this to be a purely Korean word.
