Leaving – Part 1

You may have noticed I haven’t updated my blog in any meaningful way for quite some time. This has been due to a combination of things. Firstly, I’ve been incredibly busy preparing my post-Korea travelling schedule, and secondly, I simply haven’t been doing anything interesting. I’ll give you a quick rundown of the last few […]

Children’s Day

Today is Children’s Day, a day when Koreans stop work and……..celebrate children, I guess. All the kids get taken out on nice trips by their parents, usually to a theme park or the cinema or for a picnic. As such I shall most likely not be venturing out, because everywhere will be closed or gridlocked. […]

Graduation

Saturday before last we had a sort of open day for our Hagwon so the parents of prospective students could visit, see a little presentation from our Director and Principal, and look at Dave and […]

The Kids of Kid’s Club Part 6 – Thomas

Name – Thomas Age – 4 Class – Cherry Favourite Phrase – “Yes. No no no no no!” when getting yes and no confused. Favourite Class – Reading Additional Information – Thomas is something of a tragic figure due to being so incredibly smart in a class full of jabbering idiots. He tries his best […]

Pepero Day!

This past Wednesday (11/11) was Pepero Day in Korea, a national holiday not to honour the war dead like in Britain and America, but to eat a particular type of sweet called a Pepero (Pocky in Japan), which is a little biscuit stick dipped in chocolate. For about a fortnight before the day people kept […]
