I being a Tibetan, want to introduce culture, food and the story of my country, Tibet, in Korea. With a hope that more people would know our story.
I heard about the sad history of Korea which is similar to my country’s story and how Korean people dealt with that grief and overcame it. The way Korea overcame the obstacle, inspires me and makes me feel a special bond with Korea and its people. So, I believe that someday my country will also overcome the chinese occupation.
I married with a Korean woman and have three children. I have been living in Korea for more than 10 years yet, I haven’t forgotten about my roots. I also teach my children about Tibet and tibetans way of life style, time and again. These are some of the reason, why I am running a tibetan restaurant. I named my restaurant after the Potala Palace because it is a holy place for us and it was the place where His Holiness 14th THE DALDAI LAMA used to live.
By birth, most of us tibetans are tagged as refugees all around the world. So, we pray and struggle everyday of our life for the peace and Justice to our nation. I have dreamt that someday soon, I will set foot on tibetan soil with my childrean.
