A haiku in honor of my afternoon snack, V.

There's so much to say.
Ice-cream-rice baby.
And don't forget beans.

I've heard of meshing cultures before, but this is pretty literal. Rice cake snacks are very popular in Korea, filled with red bean paste (what would be the green and brown layers in the concoction above). The other 2 layers (innermost and outermost) would be ice cream and waffle cone.

At first, I was scared, but it turned out to be okay. Or maybe it's because I've been here for 7 months and, like this ice-cream-rice baby waffle snack, I too am becoming a mixture of Korean and Western culture. Hmm.
