BHC Fried Chicken - Brinkle Chicken
I'm sure you're like, "come on, Meredith, a chicken post is one of your top 5?." My answer is, "yes, yes it is." Not because of the post itself, per say, but just as a matter of the sheer number of times my friends and I have eaten BHC's Brinkle Chicken in the past year. It is definitely a hit and deserves a place on this list.

Museum of Modern and Contemporary Art - Julian Popp Exhibition (February 2016)
I just really enjoy going to MMCA near Anguk Station and seeing the new exhibits and installations as they come. It's a great peaceful trip.

Brasa in St. Paul, Minnesota
I have to give a shoutout to Brasa and to Minnesota. It was one of my trips this year and I made a special plan to go to Brasa on one of my few days in Minnesota, it's that good! Even though it was an almost -50 degree windchill, had to brave the cold to get me some good ole' meats and THE YUCCA FRIES AND GREEN SAUCE!

Japan Kansai Trip 2016 - 4 days, 3 nights itinerary
This year for Chuseok, I went back to Japan. This was also a great trip! Mainly because I was able to see my friend who I hadn't seen for about 3 years. We went to some places in Kyoto I have never been and we also ate some great food, of course!

Taiwan Trip 2016 - 4 days, 3 nights trip itinerary
This was  a great escape from Seoul, Taiwan is always a good break from the hustle and bustle and the "bballi bbali" life in Seoul. I always leave and wish I had spent more time there. Next time, I definitely have to stay longer, so I can go to the Southern part of Taiwan.

[Skincare Review] Head-to-Head Test: Estee Lauder Advanced Night Repair vs. La Mer The Concentrate

 As promised, here is my blog comparing the Estee Lauder Advanced Night Repair vs. the La Mer The Concentrate. FTC disclaimer: I was sent both of these items for free in exchange for my full and honest review. I tried to be as scientific as humanly possible. I had a blinded reviewer (my mom) who was actually unaware I was even doing a skincare test, so her opinion is completely blinded and she tried really hard to give a full and honest review of differences she noticed. I did this for 2 weeks. In the 14 days before the test, I was testing out the Estee Lauder ANP product in exchange for my review. I had enough product left (and actually received a second sample to test). My nighttime skincare routine was the same as usual. 1) DHC Cleansing Oil - Buy from YesStyle | Buy from Amazon 2) Micellar Water (for eye makeup) 3) Rosette Cleansing Paste Sea Clay Smooth - Buy From YesStyle  | Buy from Amazon I used my PMD Clean (from CAUSEBOX) to wash my face.
