Sweet Grape

Sunny 10

Sunny 10

Convenience stores all over Seoul and I promise I’ll write about them later. For now I’ll talk about the Sunny Ten. It is a grape flavor soda sold at the convenience store near campus. It taste the same as “Joya de Uva”. Whats the deal about this, well as you can see it has the Asian can size (250ml). For “heavy” drinkers like me this means 3 sips. Its only 500 KRW. The special thing about this is that I get them for free. There are several combos at the convenience store and if you buy a sandwich (bbq, or chicken? salad) you’ll get one of these.

Its been my dinner for several days now. Usually dinner at a regular restaurant will go form 12,000-7,500 KRW. The price of the sandwich and soda ? -Just 1,500 KRW so its quite cheap and the gas will fill out my stomach for a while.

Just to show off my new korean skills those korean letters above the number ten say “soh-ni-tean” ¬†All english word that are used in korean are translated to what I been called “closest sound” in this case I think I think they did a good job. You should have seen the face of my teacher when I asked her to translate Monterrey…
