DMZ, Round 2

I’m at the DMZ for the second time with the lovely Leslie who’s visiting for two weeks.

I realize I haven’t actually written about Round 1 at the DMZ, but in short it’s a political amusement park. 27 more words

Some Coy Fingerplay

Found this beauty on a wall downtown.

Don’t even know.

In other news tomorrow I’m going to try ad sneak into the Doctor Who World Tour/willingly get scalped for a ticket! Wish me luck!!

Potatoes

Oftentimes as an ESL teacher, I like to offer more than just my language.

I also like to think I┬ámake available my cultural difference for answering various questions about the world (“Why are there black people in America and white people in Brazil?”), exposing them to indigenous cultures (Students: “Eskimo!” Me: “Actually, Inuit; Eskimo is offensive.” Students: “Eskimo!”), and letting them know about various international holidays (Me: “It’s Canada Day today!” Students: *absolutely blankness*). 1,256 more words

Fashion Watch, Downtown Cheongju

Found these glories whilst walking downtown. Both made me do doubletakes and I thought that made them worthy to share with y’all.

Pale Like Elsa

Saw this advertisement outside a cosmetics shop – not even surprised the Snow Queen is inspiring Korean makeup. Like many other Asian countries, pale skin is considered to be more beautiful. 39 more words

Nopedity nope nope.

Marketers, you be milking this – and I can’t say I entirely disapprove. Well played, ice cream company. Well played.
