French Mum, humanitarian, restless explorer and doer on sabbatical in Cebu (Philippines): one Attila in each arm, I am exploring the “toddlers safe” corners of the region, while trying to keep some room for Me.
I have been an expat for the last decade, half of it in Asia. I am quite used to the cultural differences between our continents. Or that’s what I naively thought, before visiting this little Korean supermarket by my home.
Not that the maker himself acknowledges that the beverage is “slightly acidic” ( I bet it is a nice euphemism!), or that it “has a distinct aroma and favor” ( at least you’ve been warned! ) . But that it proudly states that what’s inside is “French Cappuccino” !!! So wrong, so, so wrong. I felt my chin tremble and cursed this globalization that does not respect anything, anymore. All of a sudden, I felt very old.
Still in shock, I headed to Fujinoya, a few meters away from the horror. The Japanese patisserie serves the best Capuccino in town, and probably far beyond. As I sipped my heart shaped elixir, globalization blinked at me.
