Liz’s sushi birthday party was indeed spectacular, we got party platters of prawns, plus salmon and eel sashimi (covered in gold flakes), since we’d called ahead with a reservation! All the food at Green Mong was delicious, and those that joined us (Rachel – our co-teacher, Brian – another American teacher who lives in our ‘hood, Esther – one of Korean co-teachers, Minji – one of our secretaries who is an English Lit student in Seoul on winter vacation, plus Jay and Joey – 2 Philosophy students at Pusan University that we met out at The Basement where Anderson DJs) all had a great time. Minji brought a tasty cheesecake/poundcake from her Black Uncle, and Liz also got some nice fashion accessories from Rachel and Esther.
Rest of the weekend was fun, too, more DJing by Anderson, etc. His knee is still hurting, so no soccer, but the healing process is gradually having some effects. Not that it mattered too much, the game was hardly one, according to a teammates post-match report.
Food’s still great, as is the weather, time is flying by, though payday this Thursday will be quite exciting (particularly for Anderson’s parents :-).
Luke is coming to visit in a month, which we are quite excited for, since it’s been a while since we’ve seen a familiar face. Lots of friendly faces here, but familiarity is a non-factor.
Our cat-sitting gig is almost up, Kester is back in town but hasn’t emailed us yet, so we’re enjoying our last few days with Jonesy, the best cat ever. Shame he isn’t ours…
