Since April 18, I’ve been running around occupied with work and meeting friends. It was fun and all, but now I’m exhausted! I’m just so glad I am not working tomorrow (Saturday) like the last two Saturdays I had to work . . .
My adventure in work and school can be broken down into the following:
April 18 (Friday): I met Momipie in my neighbourhood, and we went to Son’s Kitchen to have some Korean food. I am glad I finally met her since I didn’t have the chance when she visited Korea last time! I had a blast talking to her about our common interests (animes and mangas).
April 19 (Saturday): I had to work at the Community Easter Egg Hunt. Afterwards, I met up with Tessa, and we went to the Leeum Samsung Museum of Art. This is my second visit to the museum. During my first visit, I’d miss this cool stairwell, but this time I noticed it and took a picture of it. Then we had refreshment at Bricklane. Their cheesecake was fabulous.
April 22 (Tuesday Morning): My co-worker and I went to Dongdaemun Toy Alley so I could buy toys and goodies for the goodie bags I needed for this one programme I am in charge of. That alone was an adventure since it took us like 30-minutes to get parking and then I had to quickly choose fun items and then lug them all back to our workplace.
April 22 (Tuesday Evening): I met the infamous Amanda Chan! She and her fiance came to my area, and I took them to Sonmali Kimbap, Chansbros Coffee shop, and then we had churros! I had a lovely time with her. I am really glad I got to meet her.
April 23 (Wednesday): I met Bunny-unnie, and we tried this Thai restaurant called Chang Surin, a super small place, but with delicious Thai food. Then we checked out this new cafe in her area called Cafe Hooamdong.
April 24 (Thursday): After visiting the hospital, I went to Zelen, a Bulgarian restaurant in Hannam-dong, to try their special Polish food event. My friend, who is Polish, and I ordered the zurek (soup), the placki ziemniaczane z gulaszem (beef/mushroom stew with potato pancakes), and the pierogi z borowkami (blueberry dumplings). They were all delicious! I especially liked the zurek, and the potato pancakes were divine. I only wished this wasn’t a limited deal!
April 25 (Friday): Remember the goodie bags I prepared on Monday? The party for that was today. The kids and their parents got free pizza, punch, and ice cream. Who wouldn’t like that?
