Saying 'Goodbye' to John.

The other night we went out to celebrate John’s last week, and Rob’s first week, here at the academy. Nothing too fancy, dinner at Gimbap Heaven (김밥 전국) followed by a few hours of drinking at WA Bar afterwards (a few glasses of wine went down well). It’ll be sad to see John leave. He [...]

Weekend Report: Shopping downtown and Yorkshire Pud's.

It’s been a cold and wet weekend, a vast contrast to the weather over the last couple of months and no doubt an indication that winter is just around the corner. Despite the overcast conditions on Saturday, Em and I decided to spend the day downtown. We don’t go downtown that often, so we do [...]

Time goes by so fast.

I know I’ve said this a million times before, but the weeks really are flying by so quickly. In as short as only a couple of weeks, my co-worker John will have finished his 12 months here at the academy before he moves on again. It’s hard to imagine that 12 months has passed in [...]

A quick weekend. Student presentations. Mexican food.

That was probably the quickest weekend yet. On Saturday we had our presentations for the academy at EXCO, Daegu’s convention centre. John, Kris, Miranda, and I met at Dunkin Donuts prior to leaving our area. The young girl working there seemed so surprise to see 4 foreigners all dressed up on Saturday and couldn’t help [...]

A dreary Saturday lined up at EXCO.

I would like to say I’m happy it’s Friday as I don’t have to work tomorrow, but I’m not and I do have to work tomorrow. About 3 times a year we have presentations for the students. The students work for a month on them and, as I’ve posted about before, they present them in [...]

A nice BBQ and a few drinks on the roof.

It was nice to have some moments of sunshine in what was a generally overcast Sunday for my mini barbeque on the roof yesterday. We invited John over, who came with both a pitcher of beer (well done sir) and a very delicious Paris Baguette cappuccino cake (which instantly won Em over), and spent the [...]

The weekend so far.

A pretty good weekend so far. Last night after work Em met me outside the hagwon and we headed down to the university area. On the way there I stopped in at McDonald’s and bought myself a Big Mac. I don’t usually eat McDonald’s these days (for no real reason) but I just felt like [...]

A busy weekend and a visit to the soju tent.

Well that was a darn interesting weekend. On Friday night Em met me at my hagwon (lucky girl had the day off from work) and we headed down to the university area where we bought some fried sandwiches, snacks, and drinks, and watched a DVD in a movie room. We ended up watching Elizabeth, seeing [...]

Games, computers, and a Peking duck.

So ended a very lazy weekend. Do I seem to say that a lot on Mondays? Saturday, instead of going for my long intended walk, I managed to push myself out of bed around lunchtime. I know that sound terrible, and really it is, but I think my body was trying to tell me that [...]
