seoulitary confinement

another great example of korea's cultural illiteracy. read about it at: seoulitary confinement I think this blog of mine will end a little after i get to korea. i've mostly written about what ive been going through during my job search; and after i arrive, i'd like to post about getting an arc card, getting my cell phone, exchanging money for the first time, finding my own place to live, etc. But after that, i think i will start a new blog, about the Seoul Sister living in korea. im sure i will see many examples of korea's cultural illiteracy... and i'm sure i'll have a lot to say about it.

seoul sista,

You don't have to stop blogging. Once you arrive it will just naturally evolve into a blog about 'living in korea'. just a thought. On cultural illiteracy just wait 'til you see "the black people tooth paste" try not to flip your lid when you see the logo. white man in black face with a top hat, sambo style. it's the most popular brand in asian counties.

hi anonymous, yes ive heard of that toothpaste! ive heard also of the darkie/darlie toothpaste. recently i was introduced to one in japan by my friend harvey (japannewbie.com) on his website he has this crazy commercial for it... apparently we're really skillful in climbing any vertical structures in record time. anyway, i think i still want to end this blog soon, i think it serves well for the beginner and i'd like to just keep it like that. if i continue to blog here, it'll get too big for that. a new blog will pop up, still me, just different page.

It all started when..... said...
