We splurged a little on the weekend and bought ourselves a camera with lots of buttons. Sung Hyun has wanted one for awhile now so we finally made the big purchase. I don't have enough patience to figure it out. But maybe one day........
Till then I'll let him take pictures of me

And I'll just keep taking photos with my in-perfect-working-condition point and shoot camera

Where's Amanda and Goodman?

The happy couple is getting married this summer in the States. I'll be in Korea working my butt off but I'll certainly be thinking of them on their special day. Hugs to you both from Korea ;)
Can you spot them amongst the delivery ads?

Picnic in the park

On Sunday Sung Hyun and I joined some friends for a picnic in the park.It was a beautiful day. Notice Sung Hyun wearing a sweater; he's always cold!
Children were playing in the water fountains
Ooooopsss, guess I should check the zoom next time

A great way to spend a Sunday

A blanket of snow

I took these beautiful pictures a few weeks back on an afternoon stroll around Yeoido. There is a select opportunity every spring, say 10 days give and take, when you are able to witness the cherry blossoms in full bloom. AND SPRING IS DEFINITELY HERE!!!!!

My favorite one! Cherry tree in front of the 63 building!

My dear friend Charlie..........

Charlie was one of my first Korean friends. The number of times we met could be counted on two hands. Regardless, he is just one of those people that you can't forget. Our talks, always so deep and passionate -- straight from the heart.

I met Charlie my first year in Korea, about a week after I met Sung Hyun, when all things in Korea were still new and fresh to me. I haven't had the opportunity to meet Charlie for the past 2 years since he's away doing his mandatory military service. A lot of time has passed since then. I think about him though -- where he is in his life, how much has changed since we met last.

I hope our paths cross again!!!

Charlie if you're reading this..............I MISS YOU ;)

One love, Two hearts, Forever Always.....

As of today, April 15th 2009, 11 am (Korean time) .............
I'm MARRIED!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Sung Hyun called me wife 5 times within the first hour. We both laughed! This is so weird.

Wedding cards!!!

Sent out most of my wedding cards. Most, but not all. The procrastinator in me works to my favour in this case since it's common to receive wedding cards only 2 weeks in advance. It's two weeks just now so I'm doing good!!!!

I even made a list mom!!!!!

Last full day with Kenda -- Tuesday March 3rd

Played the Game of Life with Kenda during my lunch break
Then she got all packed up and went for our last dinner together...boohoo
Shabu shabu
first eat the meat
second the noddles
third the rice
Happy to have Kenda experience my life in Korea. Sad to see her leave!!

Uneventful Monday

Monday was pretty chill. We were so busy on Sunday that it was nice to just sleep in and enjoy the day off with really nothing in mind. I had the day off because I used one of my personal days, so not worrying about work was nice too.

Stayed in bed all day and then headed out to meet up with my friends for dinner.

Yummy Korean BBQ

Galbi and kimchi
Then we went to a board game cafe to play some games. Sung Hyun finished English class in time to join us for a round of Monopoly
Kenda checking out the board game menu
Hard to win if no one lands on your property. Poor Shane invested so much in those houses however we always managed to skip around them

And Kenda won!!!!!

Sunday with Kenda

Yup I'm about 2 weeks behind on my blog......ughhh! But I guess that happens when you have a full time job and a full time life outside of work. Haven't been getting home until after 10 usually each night which leaves little time for computer fun. I'm looking forward to having some time off for myself during the week of my wedding. Which, might I add, is only a couple weeks away. More on that later though. Enjoy the beautiful pics we took on Sunday together. Our day was jam packed with good times:

First a stop at Krispie Kreme doughnuts for some goodness. Then off to a palace to watch a changing of the guards ceremony
Got to try on a hanbok. Amanda was right.......pregnant mushroom comes to mind when looking at this picture. Hopefully my wedding one will fit better
After the palace we did some walking since the weather was so beautiful
Then ended up at my favourite little Indian joint for dinner
Kenda tried everything but didn't really like any of it (except the bread)
Then off to Seoul tower to check out the bright lights
and the love locks
Then to Myeong dong for some more late night shopping
hello pretty boy
Then to the convenience store to gather goodies for our taste testing adventures

An awesome exhausting day ;)
