My Repeated Failure at Watching Sport on the Telly in Korea

Yesterday marked the end of the month of Irish sport on television, that is television streamed through the internet and watched on my computer. It has taken me five years of living in Korea to master the art of searching through Google for the relevant link to watch a match, which is impressive. It was an ordeal I would recommend to anyone as the rewards are worthwhile, although they could have been much better.

For starters this is not the first time I’ve tried to find sport via the ould interweb. I know that when herself when was in Ireland, she never had any problems watching the things she wanted to. There are a few Korean websites that post television shows up after they are shown for the first time. I imagine you can do the same with certain Irish programmes too, but with live sport it’s completely different.

HBC Fest – Rock n’ Roll (and some folk) Photos

Here are some more pics from May’s HBC Fest, this time I’m keeping all things musical this time and focusing purely on the live acts. I have a few more pictures of the crowd’s antics to post but I’m going to give the people who make the Fest worth going to some credit – in fairness it wouldn’t be much of a music festival without much music, right?

These photos are going to start from the beginning, around 1 or 2 in the afternoon. I didn’t get to see everyone, but everyone I did see did get a photo included. I decided to go with a slideshow this time.

By-the-by, let me know what you think of how this was presented – did the slideshow work? I have other options for displaying photos that I’m currently exploring. I want to avoid the big long post of photos I’ve been doing in the past.

Open House - Shanthi Ashtanga Yoga, Jan 30th

Saturday, January 30, 2010 - 11:00

Hopefully, the coldest days of winter are behind us! It's time to stop hibernating and start moving.

Shanthi Ashtanga Yoga Studio will be hosting an open house at our yoga center in Pusandae on January 30th. We will be holding a free yoga class, a mysore/ashtanga demonstration, delicious food and an awesome raffle. Join us for some or all of the event!

Saturday's schedule is as follows:

11:00 - 12:30 Free Ashtanga Class

12:45 - 1:10 Yoga Demonstration

1:10 - 3:00 Good food and raffle

We will be giving away the following: one month of unlimited yoga, 2 10-class cards (expires after 3 months), a yoga mat, a rug from India, and 3 eye pillows.

If your goal is a lean, strong body or to calm the mind, this is the perfect opportunity to try ashtanga and meet the community.  All Koreans and Foreigners are welcome!  

Life in Korea: getting an AIDS test free and anonymously

Author's note: Life in Korea posts are aimed at the newer expats amongst us - if you have a more experienced perspective to offer, feel free to comment away.

After the recent Rubber Seoul event, I thought I'd share a little public service announcement. An AIDS test is something that should be on your list if you're sexually active. The Korea Federation for HIV/AIDS Prevention (KHAP) offers free and anonymous testing in Seoul and Ansan twice a month, once at each location. Beyond the free condoms you can pick up there, it's important. For more information or make a reservation, check out

Head to the Ansan center every 1st Sunday or the Seoul center every 3rd Sunday. You need a reservation; call 02-927-4323 for the Seoul center or 031-495-0560 for the Ansan center.
