That's what I'm talking about!

On Saturday we all went for pizza after Korean class and randomly decided it would be a good idea to go snowboarding! It was so last minute, and we were really unprepared, but it turned out to be the best choice! We are lucky the ski resorts are all less than an hour away from Suwon so was no problem getting there. We were also able to rent everything we needed and get all-day lift passes for relatively cheap. I do miss my snow gear though!
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.

Changing of seasons

I think it is safe to say that winter is officially here. Last night I witnessed the first snowfall, although it wasn't enough to amount to anything substantial. It is freezing though, and I can't wait to hit the slopes!
Here are a couple of pics of the beautiful Autumn colours, which are just about non-existent by now.

Snacks 'n things

I get some pretty interesting things offered to me at school by my students, like banana flavoured chips - which were pretty nice actually. And some not-so-nice things like this dried octopus leg...I graciously accepted but still can't bring myself to eat it!!

On Wednesday it was 빼빼로 day and my kids absolutely spoiled me with boxes and boxes of the stuff. I love my sstudents and I don't need to buy chocolate again for the next few months :)

Shop til you drop

So I've been very lazy with my blog lately. Partly because it's difficult&inconvenient to drag everything down to the PC bang, but also because there just seems to be no time!
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...
