I've been BUSY! This is the life people, I am so lucky and blessed!
Loving the winter season for the first time ever, and also ticking off a few firsts, like yesterday I did my first Bungee Jump!!!!! Finally :) It was only 55m, tiny compared to the 200 and something meters jump in South Africa. It was with out a doubt the scariest thing I've ever done, so I'm proud to say I actually did it, and it was the best adrenalin rush you can ask for!
I STILL can't upload photos onto my blog, so sorry, but those on FB will have to check the photies out there. Been having trouble uploading photos there too though...
Going snowboarding at Phoenix Park this weekend, one of the best resorts in Korea, so REALLY looking forward to that, just hope I don't freeze to death....people it's COLD here!

So there wasn't much snow, only one slope was open (plus the bunny) but it was perfect for my first day back on the snow after more than 2 years. And boy, did I have a good run, almost every time!! Faye and Martin, you would have been so proud of me!!
Looking forward to more snow and higher, faster slopes!! Can't wait :)
I tried posting some pics, but my blog hasn't been allowing it lately...not sure what's wrong. SO check out the pics on Facebook.

Well the good news is, I have finally finished my treatment at the dentist, so now I will have extra free time to do stuff - yay!
Also on that note, I am thinking about buying a laptop, so I can do my e-mailing and blogging at home...but need to wait a bit longer before I can do that!
Halloween last weekend was fun, although the festivities were dampened by a downpour of rain! The costumes were toned down and the big mission to Seoul was also cancelled :( we had fun anyway though, as per usual here in Korea!
Since it has turned COLD, and I am totally not kitted out for this weather, we went to Itaewon in Seoul today in search of some winter necessities. It was fun and exhausting and rather succesful :) I found a snowboarding shop which made my day too. I'll think about doing a little fashion shoot so you can wee what I got...

Last weekend, I had Friday off for the holiday, so Brian (Canadian teacher from Pyeongtaek) and I headed down to Asan to check out http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Admiral_Yi_sun_sin Admiral Yi Sun-Shin's shrine. It is the place where he lived and also where most of his family is buried. It was a beautiful, peaceful place, and I loved exploring the exciting story that was his life. Admiral Yi is a very respected figure in Korean history, and there is a statue of him in most of the cities around the country. For the first time in my life I can say that I find history fascinating!!!
