Alright! So, as you may have seen our door before, we are covered with ads. These ads

are always left outside of our door, and they're all magnetized. And we've been collecting

them and covering our door. But we've never actually ordered from them. Until today! We're

finally gonna try to order. Now, this might be embarrassing. They might hang up on us,

we don't know. But we wanna order some Korean food, for Korean delivery. So! Let's give

it a shot.

Okay, so the number's down here. There's no area code in front of it. In Bucheon, we're

pretty sure the area code is 032, so let's give this a shot and hopefully they won't

laugh at me. Wish me luck.

ANNYEONGHASAYO! AH. HANA DOLSOT BIBIMBAP AH. HANA MUL NYENG MYEON. NAY. AHHH (this is where

we say our apartment). B-DONG. PAL KONG SAH. PAL KONG SAH. NAY. UHH. HANGUGUL CHOGUM ARAYO.

YONGOL NAY YONGOL. NAY. YOBOSAYO. YONGOLUL. NAY. ENGLISH! 804. 804. (This is where we

say our apartment). OK.

Okay, so in that phone conversation this is what happened. We knew what we wanted to order,

and this is why you should learn a bit of Korean beforehand because, as you see here,

nothing is written in English. But the two arrows right here are pointed to what we ordered.

We knew that the top one said dolsot bibimbap which I happen to like and the bottom arrow

is mul nyeng myeon which Martina happens to like. So when you heard me on the phone I

said "hana dolsot bibimbap" and "hana" means "one" and I asked for "hana mulnyengmyeon"

which also means one mulnyengmyeon. Ahh. The problem arised when we wound up giving our

address. I told him the place but as soon as we got to the number, that's where the

confusion ara---uh, arose. And he couldn't understand what I was saying. So that's when

I wound up saying "hangugul chogum aroyo" which means "I only speak a little bit of

Korean" because that's when he started speaking Korean very quickly to me and I can't really

understand it. So then in the end I wound up saying "Yongo Yongo!" "English!" which

means "I speak English" of course, and in the end I wound up giving him the numbers

in English, and he wound up saying something else to me; I'm not sure if he understood.

And then he hung up the phone. So we're gonna wait for about half an hour to 45 minutes,

and hopefully some food will arrive. If not, we'll try with somebody else or just go to

the convenience store and eat some chips. So, see you again in 45 minutes.

Ladies and gentlemen: great success! So: you see this basket right here? This is actually

what we were given; we were given this basket by the delivery guy. And here we have the

bibimbap. You see it comes in its own little stone bowl; it's wrapped in saran wrap. Here's

Martina's mul nyeng myeon in its own metal bowl and saran wrap. Here we got some appetizer

bean soup. Here we got a tupperware container full of FREE appetizers. And here we have

Martina's individually wrapped and sanitized little spoon. You see that? (I love these!)

and look at the back it just pops right out like that. And here we have our chopsticks.

Now what's great about this is you might wonder about these bowls right here. What do we do

with them afterwards? Now, as soon as we're done eating, we put all of our used stuff

back in the container and we leave it outside our door. He's gonna come back in maybe three

or four hours, I'm not sure when, but sooner or later he's gonna come and pick up all the

dishes. So essentially this meal cost us nine dollars: he delivers it to us, everything

is all wrapped up, and we don't even have to clean the dishes. He does it all for us.

Tell me that's not awesome! Why doesn't Canada do it this way?! Let me know! (There you go!)

Alright. We're ready to dig in.
