Hi. I went out to dinner with a friend who was Japanese earlier tonight. She was planning go to Korea soon and I helped her to refresh her Korean skills. :) We were talking about food and she pointed out a funny expression that she couldn't find anything like that in Japanese.

먹다, mokda, while eating (먹다)
하나가, hanaga, one of us

I am glad I did it because I could forget about it straightaway and didn't have to waste my time imagining a thriller story to conceal my deceit all day in case they chase after me. To this date, a lot of miseries are caused by people who claims something to be theirs when in…
