Dental hygiene is one of the most important things that we need to take care of. Few days ago I had to get my teeth washed and the ordeal was awful. I had 2 of my teeth filled too..I'm now afraid of the drill =p hahahaha

Back to Korea..the second day...we went to Insa Dong to look at traditional stuff but people told me it's only a tourist spot...well it's not really traditional, it sold stuff, cute ones and that's about expected Tae with his new SLR, we took a pictures ^^ But first!!

Winter Break Part I

The first drop of snow in Mid-December symbolized a whole month or more of rest for the hardworking students of IIT. It meant so much to me, it was a joyous occasion as finally a semester of bitterness ended and my holiday begins.

I feel so good now..shedding all my bad memories and hateful emotions wrapped around my distorted mind. Inevitably, there was a tingling of sadness as friends whom I had got acquainted with left for good. Knowing that I will be returning to one last semester of knowledge seeking in IIT, I left for South Korea with a HUGE sigh of relief.

My first time flying 14 hours straight after two years was with Korea Air was awesome...would have been better if there wasn't two obese Canadians sitting beside me, I mean I would have more space and more freedom to you know..answer nature's call. I am now officially biased towards United Airlines >.<

Upon landinf, I was greeted by Tae Hoon!! Spotting a White Sox cap and padded jacket, he barely changed. In the hour long ride, we talked about all sorts of things (also bitched about Calvin and James).

Before retiring in his mansion, we dropped by a sang-gyub-sal restaurant for dinner!
It was sliced pork dipped in a special (soy) sauce and then grilled to juicy perfection. We then wrapped in around different types of vegetables (usually lettuce) with rice and different types of spices and eaten with one big mouthful. MMm..yummy...of course the dinner would not have been perfect without....a bottle of Soju!

With our tummies full, we head back for some starcraft after a year. Thats all for now, part II will come sooner than expected ^^
