so the minute I claimed my luggage at JFK (yes luggage), i knew it was not as hot of an idea as when i decided to bring a huge luggage. it’s not filled to the full capacity, but i thought it’d bring a big one to fill later, than several little ones since i hand carry my dslr and laptop. for one i couldn’t even lift it off the baggage carousel. fortunately, a chinese guy helped me out. it’s a wheeled bag so shouldn’t be a problem even if i had to make a lot of detour to use...Read More

It must be the thrill of a long haul flight. The idea of going to the opposite end of the world. I could never sleep in one of these. I blamed it on in-flight movies. he he.

Daejeon Fall The main reason this province was part of our itinerary is because it was Candie’s hometown for a year as a cultural exchange student. It was supposed to be a stop over to visit Hannam University and her old professor for according to her, there were absolutely nothing of interest in this province.

Because we were slow pokes, it wasn’t until noon time that we left for Daejeon. Daejeon bound We arrived at the university around 4 pm. Candie gave us a tour of the campus showing us all the nooks and reminiscing her time there. She also pointed out the Little World logo she made for the international students’ lounge and finally introduced us to her teacher friend, Mr. Hwang. We arranged to meet at 6 p.m. to have dinner together. 7 years later What we thought would be a simple dinner turned out to be a major reception of 12 people (including us). It was hosted by the Career Service team chief, the boss of Mr. Hwang, and invited along the International Relations department of 7 people, including the coordinators for Japanese, Chinese, and English studies and their director. It was an extremely extravagant (really!) dinner with...Read More
