  • Welcome to Vlogmas Day 21! Maro is like "Vlogmas?"

  • We are just making a quick snack of bagels that I got from Costco and we are going to go out for Sushi for lunch.

  • Actually I am so excited. Except they won't let me film so I'm sorry I cant film the for you guys.

  • I got into trouble one time. There was a sign on the wall that said I couldn't flim, but I didn't notice.

  • This is what we are putting on our bagels. Crunchy peanut-butter from IHerb.

  • This is frickin amazing and it is beniimo which is like purple potato and Shikwasa Jam from Okinawa.

  • It's so good. My friend Megan gave this to me and I love it so much.

  • Look at how good that Jam looks. It's delicious.

  • It's kind of sour. It's a nice combination with the peanut-butter.

  • When we get back from Sushi I am going to open this box of surprises from Korea

  • I'm dying to open this. I can't wait to see what's inside.

  • Were back home. The Sushi was amazing like usual.

  • What made it even better is a Santa Pikachu showed up like in the Sushi shop.

  • I could take a bunch of pictures of it on the conveyor belt.

  • It's probably like the best Pokemon pictures I've taken so far.

  • And I caught it so yay!

  • I have like I think I have about nine or ten Christmas Pikachu's.

  • Still not enough to evolve one of them into a Raichu, but I'm getting there.

  • Okay lets open my mail. First I want to open this.

  • This is from my friends Marie and Cory.

  • They are a Korean and Canadian/American couple.

  • They are living in Korea. They run this service called "Korea, curated"

  • So I'm so excited to open this because I've never really had anything like this.

  • I've actually never had like a purely Korean box.

  • The Kawaii box has some Korean stuff in it and some Japanese, but this is all about Korea.

  • So that will be really interesting for me because I already know

  • lots about Japan, but Korea there's still lots of stuff that I'm unfamiliar with.

  • So this is pretty exciting for me.

  • This is so heavy.

  • I wonder what's in here that's so heavy.

  • Woah! There's a lot of stuff in here.

  • Oh my God! I really didn't expect this many things.

  • Ah! This is so exciting. OK.

  • I'm going to start with the letter. Oh. Ok. So this is a specially currated box for me.

  • It says "Although we are a monthly subscription box service this box is what we call a highlight box."

  • "It features some popular Items from our boxes."

  • It features some of the items that they have had in past boxes.

  • "Because we love Indi buisiness we try to focus as much as possible on bringing independant brands artists, designers, publishers and the like

  • "Into international limelight."

  • This is really cool. They say that they have lots of subscribers located over seas.

  • "We take pleasure in offering them options that allow them to discover Korea without

  • sacrificing their religious of moral beliefs.

  • So they have boxes that are appropriate for Muslim subscribers and also

  • ones that cater to vegan subscribers.

  • So that's really cool.

  • I don't know anyother subscription boxes that will do that and make specialized boxes for people.

  • So that's really neat. OK.

  • Let's look at this box and see what kind of items you may get if you subscribe to their subscription service.

  • These are super cute.

  • The top thing is some good fortune pouches stickers.

  • I'm all about stickers.

  • Maybe. Maybe we should try doing it into English.

  • In English it says.

  • "There are times."

  • I don't know. I'm not quite sure what that means.

  • It you speak Korean and you can explain to me what this means let me know because I'm gonna be forever curious.

  • This one they told me is not vegan, however they put it in there for my fiancee to try.

  • He likes spicy stuff, but this looks like burning death.

  • I really needed some of these.

  • Oh what's this?

  • "The Arari Show: surviving in Korea"

  • Remember if you do subscribe to the box you won't get this many items.

  • This is just a selection of the type of items that you would get.

  • The smaller box is four to six items

  • and the bigger one is eight to ten items.

  • But I really love all of the things that they gave me.

  • If I hat to pick a couple favorites? I'm leaning towards this just because I love the bright colors.

  • And... probably the Kimbop plushy.
