So, I saw my aunt last weekend for the first time in 6 years and the second in 36.
For the first time, we could talk to each other.
My aunt has 5 kids, and I got to meet one of my cousins, 40 (at last, I can call someone 오빠), and his rugrats.
Emo told me about the last time our grandmother and mom came to Korea, and they all went to a karaoke bar.
Pong-ee emo works at the local Woori bank branch cleaning, and my cousin likes fried chicken and beer. His toddlers learn already English at their pre-school, and they repeated “apple” all day long. Pong-ee emo believes they’re brilliant.
“You look like your mom,” Pong-ee emo told me.
While eating noodles, “your mom always ate hot food really well. You eat like your mom.”
Fun getting to know our family.
