Annyeong! I’m Siew Yee. My friends call me Siew/ Siew Mai (dim sum)/ Chong (my last name). I’m currently located in Singapore and I’m full-time undergrad. I wish to be a baker/ cook/ copywriter/ policewoman/ producer… anything but an economist.
During my free time, I enjoy having my personal concert in the room, experimenting with new food recipes and surfing the web randomly so that I have the inspiration to continue what I am doing.
I name this blog ‘Girl in Sorea’ because the girl aka me who’s currently living in Singapore has been trapped inside the kimchi, ddeokbokki, samgyeopsal bubble ever since she visited Korea last year. And ‘Sorea’ basically means Singapore + Korea.
Okay that sounded a little creepy but you get the catch.
I have been immerse in this whole K-wave thing since I was 15 and I’ve spent 5 months in Korea as an exchange student. So.. I thought it will be nice of me to guide many of the K-Pop/Culture fans out there on how to get a taste of Korea even in Singapore! Expect lots of food recipes, restaurants reviews, fashion tips, music reviews, Korean language tips, random stuff and many other more!
Many of these are through my experiences and what I have seen, heard and observed. Some of them might not be accurate but I try my best to make sure they are and I hope you enjoy reading it as much as my 13-year old brother!
