While teaching English in Korea, I've discovered different rules for every day acts. The strict garbage rules in Korea require you to separate your garbage into different colored bags (based on your local area) which was mentioned in a previous blog post. Who would have ever thought that they would be so strict in public also? I wouldn't call it being strict, but more of ecological. I am totally in love with the concept and it does help to make it easier for those working in food locations to take out the garbage in an easier and cleaner way. Plus, it promotes being green and I love it !
Graduating with a double major in Communications and Chinese from Rutgers University, it wasn’t long after working in the Big Apple that Cindy Ung decided to take a break from the cliché 9-5 lifestyle and move to Korea to teach English for CDI. Making the bold step to leave her comfortable, mapped out life in the States, she has fallen more in love with the Korean culture as each day passes. With weekly mountain hikes, weekend road trips, discovering great foods and beauty products, constantly meeting new people, her life in Korea has been everything but mapped out.
