expat in Korea

Korean BBQ – we’re doing it wrong!


Miracle 10: Super C

From the time I was 8 until I was around 10 years old, I had some strange breakouts that plagued me (and my poor Mother while we were in France!).  I got teased quite a bit because of it.  When kids called me the traditional, silly, childhood names reserved for acne I wasn’t really bothered because they were mislabeling the issue.  They weren’t zits, but nobody really knew what was going on with my face.  At one point it all just cleared up, and since then I’ve always been the kind of person who found pride in being able to wash my makeup off with soap and water and still have pretty flawless skin.


How I got my first job in Korea

 

When was the last time you did something for the first time?  If it’s been so long that you can’t remember, I would consider that an issue.  In August of 2014 I found that I was asking myself that same question over and over again.  I took every possible opportunity to go try something new.  I took a card-sewing class (yes, you read that right), a brew-master’s tour, adult ballet (and barre) classes, did a scotch-tasting (okay, that one wasn’t quite so new), a Ukranian egg-decorating class (yep – wax, dip, and dye over and over again), and I dined in the dark at a restaurant where all the servers were blind.  We had scheduled axe-throwing and stand-up comedy classes, but ultimately I was just too busy with such an extremely demanding job.

Naked and Afraid: Korea Edition


Get ready: today's post has 50 + pictures.  No, not nudie pics as the title might suggest - we'll get to that later, though.

I had planned on heading out to the beach yesterday.  Blanket, towel, water, and sunscreen in tow, we headed out to Haeundae early Sunday afternoon to pick up a cell phone a friend had left behind at the marina.  That's right - honesty level: Korean, she lost her phone at the marina and someone had picked it up and held it for her to be retrieved the very next day.

It’s getting closer!!! I realized it pains me to go without a laptop being so far away from home lol. I don’t like not being able to skype, blog, or post videos. I can’t believe my laptop died on me randomly. I feel like I was being punished for going out clubbing the night before. :-P 


Buddha’s Birthday at 반야사

 

The nearest Buddhist temple to our place is just across the road. In fact I pass it every time I go to work. It’s small and hidden up a small hill behind ample tree cover. In fact you’d miss it completely if it were for the multicoloured lanterns which line the street from early April, lanterns which are of course in anticipation of today, Buddha’s Birthday.


Goodbye 2012!
