Cheemchi Meets Youtube: Pauliene’s favorite Youtubers

You may or may not know, this month’s theme is about Youtube.
It will be about our personal favorite Youtubers/ Youtube channel, but we could only choose three.
So without further ado, here are three of mine!

The first Youtube channel that I like is Nerdy Nummies!


The channel is a nerdy-themed baked goods and is hosted by Rosanna Pansino (Ro) who loves to bake as a hobby.
Ro is an American baker, actress, and YouTube personality. She also released a single called ‘Perfect together’.
Every week she has a new recipe and a theme with it and explains how to bake and make it. Sometimes she has guests over such as Smosh and Rhett and Link. A while ago she even had Shigeru Miyamoto and Bill Trinen from Nintendo over to let them taste the treats and play some Mario Kart 8 with her!

Japan Day Düsseldorf 2015

Japan Day Düsseldorf
Where: Throughout Düsseldorf
When: May 30, 2015

What is known as Japan Day has been taking place regularly in May or June in the state capital since 2002. Over the years, it has become a veritable highlight of the Düsseldorf event calendar. At the biggest German-Japanese festival of its kind, Japanese people living in Düsseldorf reveal the culture of their home country to visitors in diverse ways, and are intensively involved in shaping the festival. This is no wonder, given that there are around 8,200 Japanese citizens living in Düsseldorf and the surrounding area.

Cheemchi meets Youtube: South-Korea

Last week, we gave you a few tips who to follow about Youtubers who are living in Japan. This week it’s about South-Korea! And to be honest I really don’t know that much South-Korea based Youtubers. I love Kpop and the country, but I love Japan longer then South Korea as maybe that’s the reason I love Japanese based bloggers more? But anyways here are some Youtubers ~ ( and writing this article with Kpop is not a very good idea especially watching some old live shows with extra stuff)

My Korean husband

Nichola and Hugh are a married couple, who are living in South-Korea. She is Australian and he is Korean. She grew in rural Australia, while Hugh grew up in rural South-Korea...

Charlotte Reviews: Wishtrend

Charlotte Reviews is back for this week and we are going to review a Korean make up site called Wishtrend!


Wishtrend has a nice and clean site. It’s easy to navigate. So I actually bought a box with the products, so I didn’t look up the product prices. I think they sell good products and they explain it really good with pictures and before and afters. There is a lot of information but just enough so there isn’t too much information about it. If you want beauty product, you could look up the products on there for the great information and for, of course, to buy the products.

Also I really like the box. Simple but still from Wishtrend.




You have three options.  Free shipping, which is the best (because it’s free), Registered Airmail, which depends where you live and wh...

[Cheemchi Academy] Chopstick Lesson 2.1 : Japanese etiquette

Hello again and welcome to another chopstick lesson. Today we’re going to talk about Japanese chopstick etiquette ( more a fancy word for how not to be rude). The Japanese etiquette does also apply to the Chinese etiquette and the Korean etiquette but there are also some differences between them, but that is for another lesson.

So the Japanese chopsticks differ slightly from Chinese chopsticks and need to be more formally handled: don’t wander around with your chopsticks.

In Japan most of the time you have pickled vegetables (tsukemono) with your main dish. The tsukemono is usually served in a small dish or bowl and will often come with their own pair of serving chopsticks. Use them to transfer the tsukemono and not your chopsticks...
