Hope everyone had a wonderful time bringing in 2010! I turned a year older over here. Along with every one else in Korea. Their age system is quite different. When Koreans are born they are 1 year old. Then instead of turning a year older on their birthday, they all turn a year older on January 1st, the new year. Every time one of my students has a birthday, it's just a reaction for me to ask "how old are you turning?" ..and thats when I get a blank stare, "uh I'm still 7 teacher." It's just a weird concept. So I am pretty old over here - 25. (23 American age)
I thought I would share a little of what I eat every day at school. Keep in mind these are a few of the things that I eat. There are many odd things I don't eat, such as sardines, kimchi soup, rice cakes with red sauce (which tastes like spicy marshmellows) It changes every day and theres no schedule of whats for lunch - it varies between about 15 options. Every meal comes with rice, kimchi, vegatable of somesort (usually seaweed stuff or bean sprouts), a main dish, and soup. I never eat the soup though because it's usually tofu soup, or a fishy soup.
