It’s a new year and a new day here in Korea.
Happy New Years to you all. I wish you all a fabulous year ahead.
It’s crazy how many things can change in a year. I am really looking forward to this new one as it will bring me back to Canada, hopefully back to school and back with my family and friends. I will tremendously miss Korea, but change and a new challenge is always welcome. I am ready to dive into this new year and see where it takes me.
My day started out with this…
Microwaved cinnamon apples topped with Go-Lean crunch, flax and almonds.
I had a lovely relaxing morning filled with laundry (ok, not so lovely), yoga and blogging. I have just started to give Jillian Michael’s Yoga meltdown a try. I have only down it twice this far and am digging it. It’s similar to power yoga; lots of movement, fast changes and long pose holds. There are two levels on the dvd, both are fun and the time flys by. I will definitely roll them into my weekly workout mix.
And then around lunch time I moved onto this…
My favorite weekend lunch. A veggie omelette stuffed with some peppers, onions, leftover barley and hot sauce. With a side of sweet potato. Mmmm!
A had a very very interesting afternoon, but I will save that story for another post. I’ll just say now, that sometimes a language barrier and miscommunication, can result in a very funny and memorable experience. Stay tuned for this tale.
We had a fun New Years Eve night with some friends. We grabbed some dinner and drinks and had a lovely time just shooting the breeze. We went to this cute little Italian place in downtown Gwangju that had a cozy atmosphere and decent food. Italian food can be quite hit or miss in Korea; this one was a little better than average.
As part of our meal we were served this soup to start. How cute is it? It’s like a this layer of puffed bread on the outside that you break into your bowl to enjoy with your soup. A nice touch, I think.
As well as this interesting salad.
The main course was a calazone and a seafood pasta. No, I did not eat this all on my own. It was a “couple’s set” that I shared with Adrian; all for $20 I might add, including drinks.
We went out for a couple of cocktails post-dinner and then headed home around 12:45. I am such a grandma when it comes to staying up late. I am just proud of myself that I made it to 12:00. i would much rather be tucked in my cozy bed than be out late into the wee hours, but that’s just me 🙂
A great night shared with great friends.
I hope you are all having fantastic time ringing in the new year.
HAPPY NEW YEARS!
