Saying Goodbye to Korea: Don't leave my friends out of this.

Posted on Thu, Jan 31, 2013 @ 03:50 PM

Time is running out. Please stop saying, "Yeah, we will have to do that some weekend." I have exactly 6 weekends left in Korea and each is pretty much full from 8pm on Friday until late Sunday afternoon. I am lucky in that many of my friends in Korea are also leaving close to my departure date. We are all in a rush to eat lots of kimchi, find Psy socks to bring home and most importantly soak up each others awesomeness before we depart for homes scattered all over the globe. And oh yeah, I still have to find the confidence to make a jjimjilbang date. Umm, a little help please?

An English Teacher in Korea Visits The Kimchi Museum

Posted on Mon, Mar 12, 2012 @ 10:10 AM

      Are you a kimchi fan?  Before I even came to Korea to teach English, I was an avid kimchi eater.  As a kid though, I hated it. Somehow, as I grew older, I learned to enjoy it. My favorite food to eat kimchi with is meat.  For me, kimchi and meat perfectly complement each other.

      As I was walking around Coex mall, I noticed there was a Kimchi Museum. I had to check it out. I paid an entrance fee of only 3,000 Won and I was on my way to explore kimchi. The museum starts off with a timeline, a history of kimchi. Then, it goes into an exhibit of different types of kimchi. I had no idea there could be so many different types!  It also displayed the different types of kimchi from North Korea.
