The MIL’s Typical at Korean At-Home Meal
with DJ, IZ, and the In-Laws
The Home Stretch : Day 3 (see previously 7.193 Mineo Hoe).
At long last, the time has come. Arrived in Seoul yesterday morning. Will be here for a week to pack up and ship our stuff to the Philippines, where we’ll be reunited to live as a family after 2.5 years. Flying back together to Manila next Saturday.
Bless her heart, the MIL insisted that she make dinner for me, despite my loud objections and clear proclamations that her cooking falls way short of my standards — she really believes that I’m joking. Thanks to GMTD, I’m pleasantly reminded that I had to deal with this very issue during my final week before making the solo move to Manila in 2014 (see generally 5.109 The MIL’s Typical Korean At-Home Meal) — deja vu all over again. The good news is that it should be the last MIL-meal for the foreseeable future. The bad news is that I won’t get to enjoy these opportunities to gripe, which may be worth having to endure the subpar food.
