Guess what can more be found at Costco? Previously, this couldn’t be found anywhere on the peninsula.

Anonymous asked: I started reading your blog and thought you were someone I knew but it turns out there's just more than one Binghamton alumnus gamer who moved to Changwon. Did you intend to start a migration?
Wait, really? Who? I knew of one other person in Korea (recently) from Binghamton - a girl that I knew of tangentially. Throw me another ask, who are you and who is the other Binghamton alumnus?
So, I recently ate a couple new things, and wanted to share them!
First, I had the wonderful 물냉면 and 고기. The first is “mool-neng-myun,” and consists of thin, grey noodles in an icy broth. It’s served with vinegar and mustard, both optional, both delicious, which are added to the broth. It’s served with a few onions and radish in the broth and a hardboiled egg on top. It comes with 고기, “gogi,” which means meat. Pork, in this case, I think. The hot and cold, acidic and meaty flavors mix really well and it’s an amazing summer food.
Second, I had 닭발 “dalk-bal,” or chicken’s feet. It’s every bit as gross looking as you might think, though it doesn’t taste too much different from chicken skin. It’s served in an ultra-spicy sauce with a ton of onions. It has sort of the same problem as wings for me - too much bone/hard to eat stuff, not enough goodness.
Last, I went to a yakitori place. Yakitori is Japanese for “goddamn delicious things on sticks” and the highlight was the chestnut stick. They smoke chestnuts, cover them in a little salt and a little sugar, and wrap them with 삼겹살 (basically strips of bacon). The texture takes a little getting used to, in my opinion, but it’s awesome tasting. The yakitori place also has chicken hearts (delicious), chicken skin (also delicious), and every kind of meat or veggie you could imagine.
I’m currently teaching Business English at Dong-Ah University, and have been for 2 weeks now. The pay is better than I’ve ever had before, and I’m only teaching about 14 hours a week. In other news, I just secured a deal where I’ll be self-employed from May through the end of July, at which point I need to have a working beta of my web dev project. I can’t reveal too much about it yet, but I’ll start a dev tumblr when the time is right. I’m still living in Dongnae, which is excellent because it’s so very cheap, and close to Tae Hyun. In the near future, looking forward to going to UMF Korea 2013, a music festival.
There’s an all-day brunch place with pancakes at Gwangan! It’s down towards the Homers Hotel, right on the beach. BrunsWeek, can’t miss it.
