Kiwi in Korea 12 - Seoul and bye byes

Hey spunky dunkies

hope you have all had a great weekend.  K and I went to Seoul on Friday night and came home Tuesday but went straight to Pusan as she had a flight first thing Wednesday morning home.  I will miss her.   It was so good catching up with my mate M again and meeting her lovely friends.   Unfortunately I drank more than I'm used to on Friday night and stayed up a bit too late so wasn't feeling so hot on Saturday - doh. 

M and me

Saturday we went to a baby shower.  It was the first time I had been to one and it was fun - hehe especially as I won some prizes - I won the nappy competition (putting on a nappy with my eyes shut) , and a magazine (in English - woot) that I read on the train home (the KTX rocks), I also won the comp about saying the word baby or mother (or derivatives of).  Basically everybody started the day with a safety pin and if you heard someone say those words you could claim their pins.  I had six at the end of the day (luckily I won back the two I had lost previously).  This was my prize -  Korean soft porn haha, and soju - excellent *touches fingers like Mr Burns

Meet Jeff da Maori

It is the rainy season so it rained most of the time we were in Seoul.  I don't mind the rain cools things a little.  This is the view from my mates officetel.  yay the sun came out

Sunday we went to Itaewon (like the reverse of Korean town, this is the place where Westerner's congregate) and K had her hair dyed and I bought some clothes.  Woot, cause the clothes sizes fit westerners.   In the afternoon we went to Lotteworld (but not on the rides) but we weren't that impressed).

Monday we went to Coex Mall and it was choice - more shopping (for K - eek it was a costly weekend).  We also went to see The Good, The Bad, The Weird when we were there - it is a Korean spaghetti western and K and I enjoyed it although we couldn't understand the dialogue.   The Wierd (Song Kang-Ho) was funny (the audience laughed at his dialogue and K laughed at his slapstick) and The Bad (Lee Byeong-Hun) was bad ass sexy.

Tuesday was spent travelling and packing.  I put K on the plane home yesterday morning .  She was supposed to meet a friend at HK airport but they missed each other and she spent 5 hours wondering around the airport.  Nevermind I appreciate my mate going.   Thanks  

I will get on to myfeeds and responding to comments as I'm a tad behind. 

oh and when I was in Busan after taking K to the airport I went to Home Plus to buy a cute Pink Panther toaster over (ah toast blissful sigh) these two young Korean guys were asking me where I was from.  I think one of them was asking for my phone number but I did the blink (dumb foreigner) look (thanks M for the tip), they were sweet though and I should probably just have said that I was old enough to be their mother but the English wasn't so good (and my Korean is terrible).

It's sad K is gone and you'll miss each other. But for the rest of your stay you can do things you wouldn't normally do as a mom or do things K wouldn't have liked. Make the most of it so it doesn't feel so lonely. Who's K staying with back home?

It's a shame K missed your friend at the airport. You know she'll be alright, she's wiser than most adults I've known!, she's been raised well. Hope you'll be okay :)

Sounds like a fun and packed weekend you had in Seoul. It's always great to get together with good mates. Did you get drunk on beer or soju? That soju can be pretty potent stuff. I want to see The Good, The Bad, The Weird too! I can believe that Lee Byeong-Hun is bad ass sexy. He's a fave. I'm so excited that he's going to be in a couple of Hollywood productions. You must be a sad Mum to send Kahurangi home but you raised a smart girl and she'll be fine. Have you worked out when you will be heading home yet? Pink Panther toaster sounds cute. Take a pic :D

I saw the Korean Folkcraft Winecup that you won, but where's the soft porn? I don't see it. I can't wait to see the Western....saw a trailer for it on Sung's blog, and I wonder when (if) it will be available here. I suck at that "don't say baby" shower game! Kudos to you for winning it. Hope K is well! Elena
