A couple of weeks ago, the MoNA, in cooperation with the Psychology Volunteers on Bikes, West Gorordo Hotel and My Refuge House, facilitated an intercultural workshop for a group of young girls in difficult situations. The workshop was facilitated by Wae Seon Yun, a Korean Language and Culture Mentor from Busan, South Korea.
Here are some photos from the workshop. As you can see everybody had a lovely time expressing themselves by means of the Korean language and cuisine.
Learning to speak Korean…
The girls were so happy to learn to prepare GIMBAP/Kimbap with a little help from Korean facilitator Wae Seon
Assemble, roll, cut and eat…
Daghang Salamat, Wae Seon!!!
The last activity required pair work in which the students were tasked to describe in Korean as well as make a fingerprinted portrait of their chosen partner.
Here are the photos of the pairings and their fingerprinted creations… (please click on individual image to enlarge)
And the last part of the workshop… Korean snacks, of course!
Wae Seon brought some kkul ttok (“kkul” means honey and “ttok” means rice cake).
For those of you who are wondering what kkul ttok tastes like .. well, it’s like our local “masi” just thicker rice flour skin and a slight salty taste on the outside but still the same sweet peanut paste filling.

It was a great cross-cultural experience for both the facilitators and students at today’s workshop at the University of the Philippines- Cebu! Thank you for the opportunity to connect and to share with warm and enthusiastic spirits, Prof. Edna!
