Don't scare me!

What a nice weather it is! Spring is just around the corner. Our tent is waiting for us to go and sleep outside. My hubby was inviting me to go out and take a walk this afternoon but I was too sleepy. I was playing with my nintendo game when I fell asleep on the sofa. It was already dark when I woke up. My hubby was inviting me to go out again for dinner but I was too lazy to change my clothes and put on make up. I told him to just order some chicken but he said he wasn't in the mood for chicken. Instead of going out, I just cooked his favorite kimchi fried rice (kimchi bukeumpap). Although it was too greasy, (I'm not sure if that's because of the meat or I put too much oil), he ate all. He must be hungry or maybe he just missed eating kimchi fried rice because I haven't made him that dish for a long time. Cutting the vegetables into small sizes takes too long time so I don't like making kimchi fried rice.

My hubby scared me while I was cooking. I was taking something from the refrigerator when he went to the room next to the kitchen and stood up holding the curtain and candle. I screamed and fell down. He laughed at first and then he felt sorry when he saw me shivering so he stood me up and hugged. I'm sure he would never do that again!

Oh gosh! Don't scare me if you don't want me to die early.

Who cares?

I was in a hurry this morning because I left later than my usual time. I've got a cold last night so it was hard for me to get up. I usually look out and check the weather outside before I put on clothes but I didn't care about it today. I was sick so I wore thick clothes and thought that I would be fine even it it was snowing outside. But when I was at the lobby, I was alarmed with the weather. It was raining! Goodness! It was out of my mind that it would rain because it's winter. I also saw the weather forecast last night and it even didn't mention about this rain.

I had nothing to do except to go back home and take an umbrella. I waited for the elevator which was on the 18th floor. Then I missed it again when I was about to go down. It also stopped three times because of the people waiting. Why are these things happened when you're in a hurry?

Well, enough for my complain! I was late again but who cares?

Korean Valentine's Day!

Valentines Day is coming! In Korea, it is the ladies who give chocolates to men. This day is not only for lovers but most kids also buy some chocolates to give to their friends, teachers or classmates. What is special to it, most of them specially kids are expecting this day because it's their chance to make chocolates with their parents. I went to the market yesterday and saw different kinds of chocolates on sale. Chocolates are too cheap so I stayed in that area choosing some chocolates but changed my mind. It's better to buy tomorrow because my hubby can see it so it's not a surprise anymore.

When I came home, I told hubby about the on sale chocolates in the market then he told me not to buy chocolates for him. Although he said that, I'll still buy. I don't wanna let this occasion passed without giving him anything. So, if not chocolates, what should I get for him? I don't wanna bother myself thinking on what presents to give so I'll just go with the chocolates and cards. What do you think?

Btw, how will you celebrate your Valentine's Day?

Korean government service

Yesterday, I've got a letter from the government office telling that all children from 2-6 years old or those who were born from January 1, 2003 to December 31, 2007 can receive small amount of money every month to use for their education. One of the reasons why most Koreans are afraid of having a big family is because of the highest education fee. It was also started years ago that the government gives some amount of money for a new delivered baby. I guess the government is finding a new way on how to increase the Korean population. If you asked kids now a days, most of them if they aren't the only child, they have a brother or a sister. For them, having three kids is too much! They think of it as a big family according to my High School student.

Last Seollal, my sister in law mentioned that in her son's school, there were only 6 new students which surprised my father in law because he said when he was young, there were always more than 30 new students in the class every year. Well, the government must be worried that someday there will be a shortage of Korean workers to work for Korean companies.

A Busy Life

I just want to update you guys on what happened after posting my previous post. I told you about my priority but all of our planned were suddenly changed. We were at home watching tv when my father in law called around 1 a.m. and he said that they were with her friend's house and we had to meet them the next morning. Our appointment with my in laws was 9a.m. but we couldn't get up. My hubby sent a message to my father in law and told him to make it at 10, instead. My father in law got angry when we met him. He said he can't depend on us if he was dying and need us on time. But my hubby said that was different situation.

We went to the mountain to bow down to my hubby's ancestors' tomb then we went to my sister in law's house. We had lunch there and had a talk about lots of things. Then my hubby suddenly disappeared. I thought he was in the bathroom then after a long time of waiting for him to come back, I checked him out and saw him snoring in one of the bedrooms. My inlaws also wanted me to sleep with him but I said I wasn't tired although I really was. I woke up my hubby at 4:30 because we had an important appointment around 5p.m. so we left my in laws. At night, we called my parents in law and said that they were already on their way home. I'm just glad that they can understand us. Oh, what a busy life!
