Korean Garden

Yesterday John and I met for lunch at a new Korean restaurant in Huntsville, the Korean Garden. Judging from this one meal, the food is very authentic and the taste is almost the same as Korea. I have posted the menu below, for my korean friends to see the prices of Korean food in America. The prices here at this restaurant seem just about the same as in Korea, maybe 1 or 2 dollars more expensive for some of the smaller dishes. However, the more expensive meat dishes seem to be about the same or cheaper than in Seoul. Click on the menu to see an enlarged view.

Going Home

Here is my airplane for the Hawaii to Atlanta flight. All 8-1/2 hours long. I managed to grab about 5 hours sleep.

Chickens - Final Update

I was able to photograph the teenager chicken yesterday, as he came around for feeding time. I also made a short movie clip (here), but be warned it is about 50MB size.

Hawaii x 3

This post summarizes three short visits to Hawaii. While Hawaii is so nice and beautiful, after so many visits it loses some of its excitement. A bunch of misc. photos follow:

First, the chicken update. The previous chicks posted have grown to be teenagers. We still see them sometimes, they come by for the food S is feeding to the new babies. The teenager chickens are perfect size for soup I think...

Through an unusual set of circumstance, I accidentally ran into my favorite Korean pop singer Chae Yeon in Hawaii at the airport. I'll have to tell the story when I get around to updating my "K-Pop Series" of posts.

Bought a watermelon for work the other day. But driving up the mountain I was worried it would be all bruised if I put it in the trunk of the jeep. So, instead, I belted it in the passenger seat, where it remained very secure.

Blogger's Block

I have been having "bloggers block" for a couple months with no posts. This post will try to break the block, but mostly just features photos (no stories). The past couple months have been spent back and forth between Korea and Hawaii. I'm just going to lump all the Korean photos in this post, and put the Hawaii photos the next post.

To begin with, SY has quit her daytime job, and now only has a very part time job 2 nights per week. She has been theatening to take a long holiday to some tropical beach in Asia - I hope she does.

Here are a couple of my friends, enjoying some of the best Nachos we have found in Seoul.

I suffered a sore throat for a couple weeks, something I caught in Hawaii. But, after it healed, I was finally able to schedule an evening with my friends to include singing.

This visit to Korea included the frenzy leading up to and beginning the World Cup tournament in Germany. (I am waiting for someone to send me some good photo of me wearing that special shirt). I am glad to have been in Seoul cheering for the game that Korea won (against Togo), it was a very exciting night. The subsequent games that I missed because of my Hawaii travel perhaps would not have been so fun (they included a tie against France and a loss against Switzerland).
