A Myriad of "Udderances"

There are more varieties of milk, yogurt, yogurt drinks and combinations thereof here in Korea than I have seen anywhere else. My first mission in Tonga was just the opposite. I drank milk twice during the two years I was there, and it was from a freshly milked cow. Here there is milk for the morning cake, milk for your afternoon tea, and of course, "good night milk".

There are many products with a bit 'o English written somewhere. Many are translated just a wee bit off too. Such as "lemonlaim" breath freshener, and the sweater we saw today that had "Patience is the Best of All Instructors" knitted across the front.

Mickey and the morning cake!! It is one of our kids favorite reads.

Thank goodness for mis-translations and their entertainment value.
