Long time no post! Here’s an update on last week’s highlights. A separate post about our trip to Busan over the weekend is forthcoming!

Sometimes we need to spice up our daily cuisine, which led us to visit First Nepal, the local Nepalese/Indian restaurant, for another meal. This place is awesome. The chicken tikka masala is amazing, as is the tomato soup, garlic naan and banana lassi. I was enjoying my meal so much, that for the first time ever, I felt sick and achey after eating too much. I just couldn’t stop. Eventually I had to throw in the towel and take the rest home. It makes for okay leftovers (nothing like fresh naan).

Looking back on my photos from Monday, I really don’t have many to choose from for the day’s post. The best has to be the veggie chips. This is not something you can find in a Korean grocery store. Straight from Costco — huzzah!

Beauty is a huge industry here in Korea, but it doesn’t come cheap (and I’m not even talking about the plastic surgery market). Nail polish can normally be pretty pricey. That’s not too different from back in the States, though, where $8 for 1 bottle is normal. When I saw this 3-in-1 gradation nail polish set for 3,000 KRW ($2.68) I had to buy it, accepting the fact the quality may not be the best. There were so many colors from which to choose, but I went with sky blue.
Here’s the completed result (don’t mind my imperfections):
I don’t think the picture entirely does it justice, and I’m sure it would look even more awesome if a professional did it, but I love it! It may not be to everyone’s tastes but I’m about to buy stock in every color set.

Not much captured today. Walked into class with a little love note on the board, so that made me happy. They get extra props for spelling my name correctly. That’s very hard to do given the way Koreans pronounce my name. Those with English experience say “Ash-a-lee,” which is derived from the direct English -> Korean translation of “ay-syool-lee” or “애슐리.”
Thanks for reading and stay tuned for a post about our trip to Busan – Korea’s 2nd largest city!
