We continued with our market tour after a good lunch. Things sold in this market were cheap. Jidong market is quite an interesting place to check out, especially with Jihye around cos she is good at things in the kitchen.
|This thing caught my attention from far.|
Jihye said this is used to cover 고추장 Gochujang(hot pepper paste).
Interesting. It looked like a shower cap to me! Hur Hur
They are food covers!! Available in small, medium and large. Nah...I don't use shower caps. Uploaded this picture here because I thought the cover for gochujang and this food cover resembled shower caps! Never thought they are actually food covers!
Jihye told us these shoes are called 고무신 Gomusin (rubber shoes). Black gomusin used to be more common because they could be made from recycled rubber. You can’t see them anymore. Gomusin with different designs and colours for women and children were subsequently created.

|MK and I felt the urge to buy these pretty cups but we gave up the idea eventually...|
|So many froggies|
|and so many cute piggies!|
|There were so many different cute looking piggies here.|
I couldn't help it but to ask Jihye, "Does Koreans like pigs a lot?".
She said, "No."
|Street food but I was too full to eat anymore.|
|Another street food that is commonly seen in Korea. It is made of tapioca.|
MK bought one cup but didn't like it at all.
She said it was too hard. Jihye likes it though.
|Waooo...I love cakes!!|
|Although it was drizzling the whole afternoon, but we had a good time together. Sad to bid good bye to Jihye and MK but happy at the same time, becos' I'm going to meet Jae for dinner in Seoul on the same day!|
