PKNU Cultural Exchange – 3.1.2012 (Part 1)

January 16th, 2012 · 4 Surrendered

Our seconda day of class…

Started with breakfast at the dorm’s cafetaria. Love this milk! Every morning, we will have heavy breakfast. Rice and kimchi are always on the menu. You’ll get kimchin 3 meals a day.

Our first special lecture was about Korean Wave. Entertained by various music clips, drama, and movie clips. Opsss… Repeated photo ;p We were given a taste of Korean dessert, some type of sticky cake wrapped in leaf and it has red bean paste inside. Sorry, no idea what it’s called. I’m still very much blur about the things epsecially the food’s name here. There’s no English menu so it’s a problem for me to introduce the dining places I’ve been to for this 3-week stay. -.-” Expect to see photo and general name of the dishes in coming posts.

After lunch, we went for Dado (Korean Tea Ceremony).

Here we are… No idea of the name of the place hahaha…

We were taught how to bow. These are just some of us. There’s 80+ participants (Korean+Non-Korean) in this cultural exchange programme. We were splited into 2 groups. I’m in group B. This is actually group B’s dado’s session. Group A went for it few days later.

Learnt to make tea with the help of my buddy.

Left: We had fun!
Right: The two lucky girls who got the chance to wear a hanbok.

Lastly, group photo before we headed back.

    Hi Uncle Lee!

    I’m fine here, having fun and enjoy every moment of it! Too bad it’s ending soon. Going back this Sunday but will only arrive Adelaide on Tuesday morning. Such long travel time, at least 26 hours just to get back due to long transit.

    Enjoy the coming Chinese New Year! 😉

    Great Korean trip. You are learning their culture. I dont really fancy kimchi. Hardly touch them when we were in Korea 2 years ago but I got the chance to make one. :p
