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

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).
