I went to my friend Haelan's show, nicely planned trip at Studi-oh! in Hongdae. She's showing some of her design work. I love what she's doing with used bottles and the work she's creating a way to deal with all the wires we have in our life.

bathrooms in Korea. Maybe it's because I continue to find things I just can't keep to myself. Here's one: the bathrooms at my job don't have a dispenser for liquid soap as many bathrooms often do. Instead we have a bar of soap on a stick. And another: there are no paper towels or any other method to dry your hands provided. Thirdly (I have to tell you this), while they don't have some important things, they do have bidet toilet covers installed in at least one of the stalls of each bathroom--with heated seats (good for the winter).

I miss diners and delicious decadent dessert.
It's not impossible to find in Korea, it's just that it's so easy to find these (essential) things in my favorite cities: New York, San Fran, Seattle... even Philly has enough strategically placed fantastic places to keep me knee-deep in sweet treats all day. I could really use some eats from The Pink Rose right about now. I'm hungry.

I love finding an unexpected funky installation, a clever sculpture, or a large scale mosaic on my adventures and jaunts. I found these sculptures in a subway station in Pusan. They are a great addition to this public space and really creative. The spiders were made out of umbrellas and the birds are from bottles. What great whimsical little creatures!

After spending a few hours at the Pusan Aquarium admiring fish and other underwater creatures, Jess, Jess, and I decided it was time to see what some of them tasted like. We found a nice restaurant that specialized in a seafood stew. It was enjoyable, but it was also a bit scary. I wasn't quite sure what I was eating, or if I was supposed to eat that part. I had to dissect everything and remove questionable bits and exoskeleton. Regardless, somehow, I stuffed myself.
The restaurant also had a side dish I'd never come across before, some kind of noodle slaw of sorts.
Survey says: not my favorite, but it didn't make me puke.
