Sure! I’m latina too btw lol 


  • He didn’t know you were from latin america when he met you 
  • is so far from Korea that it wouldn’t be the first thing you ask a person when you see it 
  • but you started talking in other language and that was amazing so he asked
  • “wow MC that is pretty much far from here.”
  • you explained that your family moved to Korea a couple years ago but you were in touch with all your culture in latin america
  • amazed about what a beautiful culture you have and how different is from the rest of the countries 


  • “Oh I got a co-star who’s role was a latina” 
  • doesn’t know nothing about your country 
  • but please teach him 
  • he’s so happy to know more about your home at the other continent
  • “We have to go there one day” 


  • She does know that country but nothing about what is to live there
  • “Is not that different from here, maybe the weather”
  • wants to celebrate some parties from your country to make you feel home 
  • probably learn how to do some dishes too


  • “MC do you know portuguese?”
  • He’s in shock 
  • “You don’t look like you were from Brazil” 
  • you explain him that not all people in Brazil look like the TV shows it
  • He’s kind of sorry for telling you that know 
  • but happy that you are so smart to learn Korean so well
  • already planing to visit Brazil 


  • This dude knew it 
  • your last name wasn’t Korean so he searched where you were born 
  • “MC you know spanish?”
  • everyone else is like “what?” but he knows what he’s doing 
  • learn spanish just to talk to you and let the rest out 
  • “hola hermosa, ¿cómo te va?”


  • He was looking for some model for his photographies
  • didn’t wanted the tipical Korean girl that was in all magazines
  • and you told him you were different 
  • “wow MC you are exactly what I need” 
  • now you are his muse 
  • probably end up being in every single picture he takes 


I don’t know much about other cultures in latin america (other than mine of course) so this is kind of basic sorry :(

Brazilian Portuguese: Food Terms

If there’s one set of vocabulary words I didn’t care about while in the classroom, it was always “food” no matter what language I was learning. But after visiting Brazil, doing a home stay, and staying with a Brazilian family twice, I realize that food and cuisine in any country is really important to learn. 

“Important cuisine items” change with each country. Something like “rice” is really important in Japan but might not be as important in the United States. I’d also like to note that cuisine items differ depending on what region of Brazil you’re in (in this post I’m focusing on the more general items you can find throughout the region). 

Some vocabulary words will be accompanied with pictures because I definitely did not know what a freaking “coxinha” was when I was in the U.S. ;) 

Abacaxi - Pineapple 
Banana - Banana 
Goiaba - Guava
Laranja - Orange 
Limão - Lemon/lime*
Maçã - Apple 
Mamão - Papaya
Manga - Mango 
Maracujá - Passionfruit
Melancia - Watermelon 
Melão - Melon 
Morango - Strawberry 
Uva - Grape 
**For some people “limão” could be either lemon or lime, but lime could also be “lima” and lemon could be “limão.” 

Churrasco - “Barbecue” (but the Brazilian type) ; The people who work at the churrascaria usually come around with different meat/different parts of the animal meat and cut pieces right where you’re sitting. 

Calabresa - Pepperoni 
Camarão - Shrimp
Carne de boi - Beef 
Frango - Chicken 
Peixe - Fish
Porco / Carne de porco - Pork 
Presunto - Ham 
Salsicha - Sausage

Aipim frito - Fried cassava
Batata frita - French fries
Cachorro quente / Hotdog - Hotdog 
Coxinha - A teardrop-shaped breaded chicken pastry (pictured below) 

Esfiha - Meat-filled pastry (pictured above)**
Espetinho - Meat-on-a-stick (pictured below: beef and pork espetinho)  

Pão de Queijo - Cheese bread 
Pastel - Crunchier, crusty meat pie/pastry**
Polenta frita - Fried polenta 
Risólis - Doughy meat pastry**
Salsicha - Sausage (corn-dog esque)  
**Pastel, Esfiha, Risólis - These three are all more or less breaded pastries but each one is made with a different dough and/or has a different process of being made. You can pick what’s inside or whatever is available to you (e.g. ham and cheese, chicken, “carne” - beef, camarão, etc.)

Água - Water 
Café - Coffee
Chá - Tea 
Cerveja - Beer
Coca - Coke 
Guaraná - A flavor of Brazilian soda

I was watching a "Taboo" about love in prison and a portion of the show focused on a murderer and his wife in Brazil. In Brazil they allow conjugal visits and the show claimed it helped with prison violence and returning to a normal life after prison. I was wondering what your educated view on conjugal visits is...

That sounds quite interesting! I’ll need to check that out. I certainly agree with that statement. In fact, many studies have supported it.

For example, in 2012, a study showed that states which do not allow conjugal visits have more than four times as many incidents of sexual violence between inmates compared to states that allow conjugal visits. These visits also improve the inmate’s behaviour in the same way that other benefits such as classes, books, exercise, and jobs have been proven to do. Prisoners that offer these benefits have time and time again proven to be safer environments for not only the inmates but also the guards.

Conjugal visits are a powerful incentive for good behaviour. Furthermore, conjugal visits pave the way to a successful rehabilitation, making readjusting to life on the outside much smoother thus a slimmer chance of reoffending.


On this day in music history: November 19, 1977 - “Serpentine Fire” by Earth, Wind & Fire hits #1 on the Billboard R&B singles chart for 7 weeks, also peaking at #13 on the Hot 100 on February 11, 1978. Written by Maurice White, Verdine White and Reginald “Sonny” Burke, it is the fourth R&B chart topper for the legendary R&B/Funk band led by drummer and vocalist Maurice White. Following the release of Earth, Wind & Fire’s seventh studio album “Spirit” and the extensive tour that follows, Maurice White takes a much needed vacation in early 1977. White visits Brazil during his sabbatical, soaking up the culture and the countries’ unique sounds and rhythms. Also having an avid interest in Eastern philosophy, metaphysics and all things spiritual, all of these influences make their way into the bands’ music. Collaborating with his younger brother, bassist Verdine White and musician Sonny Burke, the trio come up with “Serpentine Fire”. The song is a metaphor describing a person’s life force, primarily their sexual impulse and energy. Issued as the first single from Earth, Wind & Fire’s landmark eighth album “All ‘N All” on October 5, 1977, it hits the charts and rises to the top quickly. Like their previous R&B chart topper “Getaway” the previous year, “Serpentine Fire” is edited from its original recorded length (to fit the confines of the vinyl LP’s time limit) of 5:02 to 3:51. The full unedited version is released on a white label promotional 12" single for club and radio DJ’s at the time of its original release. It is belatedly issued commercially in 1989 as a CBS Mixed Masters 12" reissue (on the B-side of “Boogie Wonderland”). The chart topping success of “Serpentine Fire” and duration on the chart makes it top R&B single of 1978, as ranked by Billboard Magazine. It also helps to propel the accompanying album “All ‘N’ All” to the top of the Billboard R&B album chart, into the top five on the Top 200, selling over three million copies in the US alone.


So: I was trying to get some more info on that negligee picture that circulated earlier today and to do so I googled some shit that… well, has probably landed me on some secret service weirdo list now. Of course tons of republican picture manips and idk real weird stuff came up: sadly I didn’t get any more info on the hows and whys someone had that negligee (because really? that’s creepy), but… I’ve found this video from the Associated Press and it’s a story to behold. I can only hope Hillary took it well and wasnt too embarassed about it, poor thing!

From the youtube description of the video: A Brazilian lingerie company has withdrawn an advertisement featuring Hillary Clinton. The Duloren campaign had been using a picture of the US First Lady, showing a tiny glimpse of her panties.
The controversial picture of Hillary Clinton was taken during her recent visit to Brazil. If you look carefully at the lower part of the grainy newspaper ad,  you   can just see a tiny patch of what appears to be her panties.
Accompanying the picture was the slogan:
“Mr. President of the United States: You don’t imagine what a Duloren is capable of.” The White House was not amused, but there’s been no direct comment from Hillary herself about the advertisement - or the lingerie company’s decision to drop it.
