Halloween party

Hi guys, are there any plans for this halloween? How many halloween parties will you attend? Have you already chosen your halloween costume?

I came home late today because we had to prepare for the halloween party tomorrow. We covered the windows with black paper and newspaper, decorated the office with scary stuffs and tried on the costumes that we used last year. And tomorrow I have to leave early for work because there are much things to do.

There are lots of costumes in the office and they are all scary costumes. As we tried on, everyone was scared when we looked at each other. There's also in charge of the face painting but it's too bad because i'm not good at art. I'm not good at drawing. I only good at drawing a heart and an apple but they are useless on halloween. hehe...

Let's how the party goes. I'm gonna tell you more about it after the party and i'll try to take some pictures.

Fall Fashion

I can't believe that the new fashion for this year fall season is wearing shorts and tights. Ladies are wearing tights, high heels, very short shorts and jacket. They are very cute wearing that attire. I don't usually like Korean style but this shorts and tights caught my attention. I like it but I don't think I can wear it in this cold season.

Koreans are always aware of their attire. They are very fashionable and like wearing expensive clothes. They change their clothes every season. They also wear make up everytime they go out and it looks strange if you'll see a woman without any make up on her face. My hubby said, if you don't wear make up, people think you don't have enough money to buy your cosmetics so they have to wear it all the time.

It's not also surprising if you'll hear that someone had a surgery. I remember when I asked my students what present they want for their graduation, some replied that they want to get eyelid operation like the former Korean President Roh Moo-Hyun had.

My superman

Like what I've said on my previous post, I had visitors the whole weekend. My hubby didn't want me to prepare anything. I just bought some fruits, snacks, milk, juice, and bread for breakfast and hubby treated them in the restaurant near here for dinner. We attended a wedding ceremony and had lunch at the wedding hall.

I didn't know what to do when they arrived here yesterday because they were tired from their trip and I was sure they were also hungry. When hubby was in the bathroom, I went in and asked what to prepare for them for dinner. He said he already told them that he would buy daejigalbi so I felt relieved. My hubby is very helpful with this kind of matter. He knows how tired I am at work and I need rest for the weekend. I know it's better to prepare things and cook by myself but my hubby knows how to handle things like this. He's my "superman".

I think I changed a lot. I'm getting stronger and don't care much what others say. Unlike before, I always bother myself a lot when I know that someone is coming. I always prepare much food like when there's an occasion. But now, I don't need compliment and I know whatever good things we do, there's still something bad that others can see you. So now I learned this- Do what you think and feel is more comfortable with you. Don't care what others say if you know what you are doing is right.

Flower street

I'm planning to give more attention here on my blog. I'll try to post more often and do the bloghopping everytime I use my computer. I'm supposed to sleep early because there are visitors coming here this whole weekend. I still don't know what to prepare for them. I had to go to the market but my laziness strike me again. I also need to get up early tomorrow but look~ it's already 2:40 a.m. and i'm still here in front of the computer. I can't hear hubby, so maybe he's now sleeping on the sofa.

I feel so guilty now because I agreed to remove the wall in front of my apartment. They are making a flower street and if we agree, they will remove the wall and change it into a gate. I thought gate is better but I realized that people on the first floor will be disturbed by the noise and they will also feel uncomfortable if people pass by. I live on the highest floor so I won't be bothered by the noise and people passing by but I feel so sorry for the people who live on the first floor. Because I saw many people signed and agreed for the gate, so I also did. But after hubby explained to me, I realized that I was wrong. And now, it bothers me a lot and I don't think that I can sleep tonight.

On the bus...

On the bus...

1. Someone is blocking the exit door. I really wanted to push her so that she will get off not on time.
2. Hajuma (married woman) got on the bus and asked the driver if the bus is going to ---- (her destination). People who were getting on the bus were stuck at the back because they had to wait for her.
3. I was getting on the bus and hajuma pushed me because she wanted to get on the bus first.
4. I was reading a book and hajuma hit me with her bag without her intention.
5. I offered my seat to halmoni (old woman "grandma"). She said it's okay but she was sitting down at the same time.
6. A teenager was listening to a very loud music of her MP3. I'm just worried of her eardrums. I hope they won't explode! Her earphones are useless because everyone could hear the sound of her music.
7. A kind bus driver waited for haraboji (old man "grandpa") to take his sit before he drives. This is great but if you're in a hurry, how would you feel?
8. Students are noisy and seems like they bought the bus so I always avoid the rush hour.
9. The bus driver doesn't care if you got off the bus or not so I must go out as quick as I can. So, I always have to stand up and tried to go out first.

Strange Caller

I was in the office talking to my co-worker. The phone rang and my co-worker answered the phone. She said the phone was mine. I was surprised because I never gave the phone number at work to anyone. I asked my co-worker who the caller was. She said she's the one that I drove to work. Whaaattt? That was really strange. I said I never drove car to work. My boss was using the computer and heard our conversation so he took the phone from my co-worker. He asked the caller who she was calling. She said to me because she wanted to thank me from driving her to work last Wednesday. I don't know if she got the wrong number but what she was saying was just a nonsense. My boss said I never drove a car and suddenly hung up the phone.

What a strange caller, huh?

What's new?

I'm getting lazy to update and bloghop now a days because I'm hooked with my nintendo. I've got another game card and I enjoy playing it. It sometimes took me late at night and I think my eyes are getting blurred. Ohhh...I'm also hooked with the game go stop. I haven't played this computer game for a long time and now that I started to play it again, when I'm in front of the computer I think of playing it instead of blogging. Now it surprised me that I haven't updated my blog for a week now that's why I'm telling you what's new here. Ooppsss... is there anything new? Hmmm...nothing special! Gotta go folks! I'll visit you soon!

Gucheondong Recreation Forest (Muju)

After Jangsu Recreation Forest, we went straight to Gucheondong Recreation Forest which is next to the Muju Resort. Gucheondong Recreation Forest is similar to the recreation forest in Jangsu. They are big campsites and there are lots of campers. Going to this big campsite made us realized that we are beginners. Beginner campers who don't really know what going camping is like. I thought having a tent where you can sleep at night is enough. I was surprised when hubby also bought a lantern, cookwares, mats, chairs and then after a few times of going camping we found out that we also needed sleeping bags and needed to change our burner into a lighter and smaller one. I didn't know that we use different stuffs for that. I thought I could just carry what stuffs are available at home. I knew that the stuffs that is used for a camp are smaller, lighter and very much comfortable to carry and use. Big things are also light and easy to fold.

When we bought the sleeping bags, we thought we had enough. We already have everything but when we arrived in Jangsu Recreation Forest and Gucheondong Recreation Forest, I realized that we are still lacking lots of things. Expert campers also have a table, benches, swing, grill for barbecue, woods for campfire, shade to cover the front area of the tent, heater (mostly for those who have kids), net use to dry the dishes, and a lot more that we don't have, yet. Goodness! Look at our neighbors' tent in the campsite.

Not to mention that some of the campers have camping cars like this. Waaahhh...

Oh well, let's just enjoy the nature and see what we can do here. Oh yes, they are playing badminton so we have to bring our badminton next time. The kids are playing and fishing in the cool and beautiful but not deep valley.

We slept for a night there and left. Bye Gucheondong, it's time to move to another Recreation Forest.

Caught in the act!

They are students who asked some money to other kids and students. They were caught by the video camera of the building. These pictures are posted at the bulletin board at the entrance of the main door of the lobby and on the elevator so I always see it everyday. Their pictures were posted with the note under telling that if you saw them, please call *---* (the number of the security guard house). Now, they are wanted for doing things illegally. Good for them! They are still young to act like that so it's better to teach them lesson earlier.

Instead of the elevator, they are using the stairs to go up and down the building. They think that the camera is just on the elevator. hehehe... And beside from the doorbell of each apartment, there's another doorbell that visitors use before they can enter the lobby so these students are brave enough to enter the building and do illegally when there are cameras all around. Sorry guys! You entered to the wrong place!

Jangsu Recreation Forest

I told you, i'd be away for 3 days and 2 nights but again the plan was changed. We came home last night and that's better I think because when I woke this morning, (around 10a.m.) it was raining. The plan changed not because of the weather but because of the Recreation forest that we've been to. First we went to Jangsu Recreation Forest. If you know the program, 일박 이일 (2 days and 1 night) starring Lee Seung Gi, Kang Ho Dong, Mc Mong, Kim C, Lee Soo Geun and Eun Ji Won, you may be familiar of the place because they took some film in Jangsu.

Jangsu is famous of its delicious apples so you'll see lots of apples planted in the farm which is just by the road. My hubby wanted to buy some but we still have many apples in the refrigerator that we received last "Chuseok" (Thanksgiving Day)!

There are also these art of apples which is a sign of delicious apples in Jangsu.

And here's the Recreation Forest in Jangsu which is big and was already crowded by people when we arrived there.

We stayed there for a short time and then we decided to leave the place. We were going to the Recreation Forest to get enough rest, enjoy the nature and relax. We thought it wasn't the right place for us because the place was crowded with many kids and the tents were built anywhere. Unlike other Recreation forest that we've been to, there are areas where you can set up your tent but here in Jangsu, people will choose and cover the area as big as they want. And the one who's next to us built two tents. Just wondering if he paid for two. Anyway, we left the place and went to Muju. And that's for my next post. hehe...

Another holiday on Friday

Only one more day left to work and we'll have another holiday. On Friday, October 3 is National Foundation Day- This day marks the traditional founding of Korea by Tan'gun in 2333 B.C. I know most of the holidays because I always check out and wait for the red marked on the calendar. It's Friday that's why we were planning to go to Jejudo but unluckily we couldn't make a reservation in advance. There was no seat available on the plane or boat when my hubby called last week. We should have made a reservation earlier than that. So instead of Jejudo, we are going somewhere on Friday. We don't know where to go yet but we'll be away for 3 days. We'll leave on Friday morning and come back on Sunday.

We are gonna use the sleeping bags that we bought last weekend. I hope it's not too cold or else we'll come home earlier than our plan.
