A Quiet Long Weekend

Last weekend we had Friday off (mercifully since work has been more hectic than usual this month). Originally we had planned to go on a trip with Dana, Curtis, Eddie and Gisela but things weren't going to work out. It was okay though since we had a lot of fun hanging out in Bundang. On Friday Dana and Curtis went to a big concert in Seoul but they left us the keys to their place so we got our fill of playing Wii and computer games. Yes, we are a little pathetic but it was so fun! Death Cab for Cutie were playing at the concert so I asked Dana to pick me up a shirt and she did. It's currently my favorite. The rest of the weekend consisted of watching episodes of the Office, eating yummy food and playing lots of games. We also slipped in a session of norae (of course!). One of the most exciting parts was stopping at a store that sells Western goods and scoring these rare and exotic items.

I am most excited about the Miracle Whip. There are not many things that I miss from home but Miracle Whip is one of them and we were fresh out of the supplies we'd brought from Canada. This is a pretty huge container so it should last us until we leave. Yay! We also picked up some mini Reese Peanut Butter cups (not pictured because we devoured them too quickly). If anyone is wanting to send a care package we are almost out of Golden Italian salad dressing, Dentene Ice Gum (the green package is the only kind I like though), taco seasoning packages and, of course, Reese Peanut Butter cups. Really I have to say I miss decent chocolate in general since they don't sell anything made by Cadbury here. Oh well, the price you pay for living in another country I suppose.

I miss real chocolate too. Homeplus used to have Cadbury chocolate. I found a small "foreigner" mart in Gwangju today, and bought some Cambells Chunky soup. hehe
