The Scoop on Poop in South Korea

By: II stix

Work Safe: Yes

I sip my latte and stifle a chuckle as I take in my surroundings at Ddoong Cafe in the Ssamzigil shopping complex in central Seoul. Colorful mini plungers hang delicately from a tree in the corner, old-fashioned squat toilets are placed tastefully throughout the shop and two high school girls take selfies with a stuffed doll, which just so happens to have a dingleberry hanging out of its rear end. “Gwiyeoweoooo!” they squeal. “Cuuuuute!” My right eyebrow raises in confusion, despite the fact that I’m very much accustomed to this opinion that is shared by so many Koreans.

Asian Americans More Likely to Have Multigenerational Households

By: II stix

Work Safe: Yes

Jenee Odani had always expected to take care of her parents, just as they had cared for theirs.

In 2011, her mother and father moved into her family home on Oahu, after adding a studio apartment with a partial kitchen and some privacy upstairs. They also remodeled bathrooms on the ground floor to be senior-friendly, with higher toilets and low showers. Someday, when the stairs become too difficult for her parents to navigate, they’ll move downstairs and Odani and her husband, Norman, will move into the studio.
