PatBingSu – Korean Ice Cream/Yogurt!

PatBingSu is probably the most delicious Korean ice cream/yogurt, it’s the most delicious (and healthy) delicacy you will try in Korea. What is PatBingSu (팥빙수)? It’s a mix of milk, shredded ice, sweet beans, and lots of fruit (and sometimes candy). You usually eat PatBingSu during summer because it gets so hot and PatBingSu will cool you down quickly.  Also it’s very good for you because most of the ingredients are fruit and vegetables. Even KFC, McDonalds, and Burger King in Korea will sell PatBingSu during the summer so the next time you are in Korea, don’t forget to try PatBingSu. To eat PatBingSu, you can eat a little bit at a time or mix it all up like how I like to do it and enjoy some delicious Korean yogurt. In Korea, they actually sell PatBingSu ice shredding machines so you can make it at home too.  My mom used to make them for me when I was younger, this is something you cannot miss. Usually you can’t find PatBingSu during winter months but if you are there during non-summer months, you can go to Rossi Mango at COEX mall in Seoul, Korea to enjoy it like I dido.

Samsung Galaxy Zone in COEX!

In Korea, you will find more Galaxy Zone stores than Apple Stores, mostly because Samsung is a Korean company and they literally run the country with their latest gadgets such as the Samsung Galaxy S Android smartphones and Samsung Galaxy Tabs. This Galaxy Zone is located in COEX mall in Seoul, Korea in the Samsung District.  (Yes, can you believe it?  There’s a district called “Samsung” district!  That’s not, there’s condos named after “Samsung” and etc…etc…) The Galaxy Tab Android tablets sold in Korea support over-the-air DMB TV, this is actually better than anything we get here in the states because it’s actually over the air.  DMB is not supported in the U.S. (yet) due to frequency issues with the FCC. There’s even Galaxy Zones in the middle of the mall, these are actually mini-booths showing Samsung’s new products.
