Tony Moly Super Peeling Liquid Review

Today’s Korean Product Review is… Tony Moly’s Super Peeling Liquid

Well, hello there. I’m a guest blogger and my name is Sofie. I’m also related to Muffy who you know as the queen of the internet web shops. I’m obsessed with buying things of Ebay and other web shops, but I was taught by the best. But getting to the point now.

Recently I tried a product which was a feet peeling. Normally I’m very sceptic about this kind of products cause whenever I try these they never seem to work or not work properly. How I think about this product will come later on in the review.

First of all I love Tony Moly, second I’m in love with Korean skincare products, I’m always quite fond of the quality and outcome whenever I use them...

Hello Kitty High Tea

On the 14th of April we existed for one year and because of that we wanted to celebrate with the people close to us. As we were thinking what we could do to celebrate, we decided to choose for something we wanted to do for a long time: Hello Kitty High tea! And then it was the 19th. We met up with everyone on the Hague station and made our way to SET Café.

The feel of the restaurant is like an authentic Japanese restaurant. Even Tsunacon took pictures like they were in Japan.
We had reserved a table for 11 people, but as one didn’t show up because of reasons we still had to pay for that missing person, so be careful!

On the table there were cute Hello Kitty mugs and bowls. It was sad they didn’t have any Hello Kitty chopsticks!

When you wanted service, you could press the service bell...

Charlotte Reviews: Oyatsu café

It’s been a while so I thought why not ? So here a review about a site that you may not know ^^ 


Oyastu cafe is a site where you can buy mostly Japanese snacks and some other products. The site doesn’t look that appealing but if you don’t look at the layout, then you see the huge amount of candy that they have for a cheap price. The website isn’t that well known but I think I really good site.



You have three options.  Japan Post Economy Airmail, the cheapest option,  which takes around the 2 – 4 weeks but with no insurance or tracking code. Japan Post Airmail, the second option,  which takes around  7 – 14 days with no insurance or tracking code. Then you have EMS Express Mail which takes around 3 – 5 days and with insurance and tracking code...

It’s Cheemchi’s birthday!

Just before you know it, a year went by already!

Even though we started posting in English in February, it was in Dutch, exactly a year ago.

It all started when I knew Eat Your Kimchi was coming to the Netherlands again as I was working for Hallyucon. At that moment I started to form an idea about starting a blog where I could talk about Korean/Japanese restaurants, stores and the like in the Netherlands, but it turned out to be so much more. Even though I stopped for a while, I wanted to start all over again with someone by my side, that someone became Charlotte!

Hi there! I’m Anastacia, a friend of the people of Cheemchi here. Just passing through with a nail art tutorial. I often do my nails as a creative outlet, but also to just relax (nothing beats inhaling all those nail polish fumes, amirite? Just kidding, of course).

But no worries, we’re starting off fairly beginner level.

[Cheemchi Academy] Chopsticks: Lesson 1

Hello! I’m starting with a new segment which is called the ‘Cheemchi Academy’. This is our first subject : Chopsticks.
Maybe you will think: chopsticks? Why chopsticks? Well, it’s that they are quite interesting and I can’t eat with them (seriously believe me, I have practiced for years and tried a lot. I got better than 2 years ago but still… and you saw my challenge with Steffie on CheemchiTV )

So here is our first lesson: History and sorts of chopsticks

The chopsticks were invented in ancient China. They were probably just for cooking and not for eating. Later it began to be used as eating utensils, because they were more friendly than other sharp eating utensils...
