I can't believe I have to work Saturdays! This sucks! I'm so bored and sat all on my own in the staff room. It doesn't help that I went out last night and didn't roll in until 4am...
So, last night was pretty good. Busan holds an annual fireworks show here at Gwangalli Beach, which is ace as its the area i live in! The fireworks were set off from the bridge and from boats in the water just infront of it. It was quite a big deal here in the city, with schools closing early, or some not even opening at all (mine did-loosers, but they let us go 4 hours early)...stores closing, roads closing...it was mental! It was estimated the over 1 million people were there, from what had happened last year...it was sooooo busy. You couldnt see the beach, there wasnt a patch of sand clear. The street was rammed and then there was us...lucky little madames I say. As we are sad enough to attend the same bar at least 2-3 times a week, we know the owners, bla bla bla...anyway, they gave us a table next to the window of the bar, for which they were going to charge 150 bucks for, but tehy love us so much we got it for free! As a kinda thankyou...purely selfish one i may add...we decided to spend good money in there by buying a bottle of vodka between us...which isnt cheap. So, at 6pm thats how our night began...there ended up being Me, Christine, Kim, Nic, Abi, Robert, Evan and James. We all had a good night and then a few of us headed over to the PNU area (Pusan National University) where we met a bunch of Spanish speaking Koreans...and apparently James and Nic speak spanish, so it was pretty cool. We ended up at a Soju bar (yep...I was dreading it the second i realised where we were heading)...I literally sat down, began moaning to James about how ill i felt and how i wanted to go home...got chatted up by a korean...i couldnt hear a word he was saying...not that even if i could i can promise i would have understood! so i decided to leave...grabbed a cab and headed home. I've really been trying with the whole learning the language thing abit more recently, and it paid off when i could perfectly direct the driver to my place in korea...woo hoo!!!
My camera has broken, but other people took some pics of the fireworks, and when they send them to me I'll be sure to upload them onto here. It really was spectacular...and apparently it cost a stupid amount of money. Ive never seen a display like it.
So, tonight the plan is to head over to Kyung Sung University area. I'm going to have dinner with Christine and then hopefully meet up with some really sweet Brits I met last night...Brits! Its so rare I meet people from the UK...
So, semi interesting things of the week:
1. I tried hot Saki at a new bar thats opened...boiling, strong...and, well..no. It comes in a huge cup too, and its 20%! I was the only one that hated it suprise suprise!
2. Went shopping to Megamart...the only trip I have made there since my horrific experience over a month ago trying to find cereal...I dragged Kim along this time, and it wasnt so bad I guess...the milk I bought was gross though.
3. I keep getting woken up by the guy that lives downstairs...he plays his TV well loud...but I take the mature approach everytime and just crank up my music at every given opportunity.
4. I've decided I may hire a cleaner...I have like the smallest apartment in the world, but no desire to mop the floor at all. I do it under sufference...
5. I really need to get my hair cut..but fear is stopping me...ive heard soooo many horror stories...maybe ill DIY it
Well, reading over that, it could qualify as the most boring 5 things ever...boo! Nevermind...exciting week ahead though (im lying)...we have a kindy outing! Yey! I get to come to work 3.5 hours earlier than i mornally do and not get paid for it! HOW EXCITING! The place is called Gijang, and all I know is the trip will involve picking sweet potatoes...great...
Well...I'll love you and leave you...hope you all have a great weekend, and I'll speak to you soon xx
