Inggeulliswi beurekpeoseuteu ti

(That’s ‘English breakfast tea’ transliterated into Korean Hangul (‘잉글리쉬 브렉퍼스트 티’) then transliterated back into Roman characters – which demonstrates how clunkily Hangul represents languages other than Korean.)

I just bought myself a cup of tea at a Starbucks in Myeongdong. The barrista made me smile (not something I do often when I’m out and about these days). After asking, ‘Hot?’ she gestured at my travel cup and asked, ‘In?’ then she gestured at the price display on the till and said, ‘Dis.’ (‘This.’)
