Bengaluru Landlord Prepares Kimchi As Welcome Gift For Tenant

The Bengaluru landlord tweeted two pictures. The first of a fully-finished vessel of kimchi. And the second a vessel filled with crisp lettuce.

The woman supplemented her pictures with a caption. Here, she says she made a 1 kg batch of kimchi— a Korean side dish made with spiced, fermented cabbage— and later stored it in the fridge for her tenant, before sub-letting her apartment to him. And then, Sanskriti asks if she can apply for a ‘best landlord award’.
