People in Korea really love practical gifts like this and especially ones that can be eaten. For example, management at one South Korean company presented their employees with food baskets.
The Korean New Year usually takes place in January or February, depending on the time of the second new moon after the winter solstice.
South Korea is home to the most visited church in the world with a parish consisting of over 1 million people a year.
There's an established gift-giving culture in Korea with certain rules. For example, big gifts to teachers or public officials are considered bribes. And when somebody visits your home in this country, you can be sure that they’ll bring a drink, dessert, or fruit.
In Seoul, there's a subway train dedicated to a comedy animated series called “Larva”. It runs on the green line 8 times a day and features two of the cartoon’s main characters in every car.
Koreans are not very familiar with Western traditions, and they don't even have geography at school. At the same time, they'd be happy to tell you anything you want to know about K-pop singers and bands.

The bus trip in Korea is quite an experience, first time ever I was on a bus drifting on a curve down Hallasan mountain on Jeju island. And in general this pedal to the metal, and break so hard that wheels block and slide is crazy.

as much as I been on subways in Seoul and Busan, never seen any themed car whatsoever.
trash bins are very rare, true, but super tidy is quite an overstatement.
I'd recommend to visit other countries yourself before telling people what other countries are like.
글쎄 ㅋㅋ 공감되는 것도 있고 좀 억지인것도 있고... 개인적으로 임산부 배려는 아직 완전히 장착된 문화는 아니라고 생각함. 일단 깔고싶은 전제는 한국의 젊은층은 변화에 대한 반응과 적응이 빠른 편(주관적 의견). 임산부 배려석을 예로 들면 사실 도입된지 오래되지 않았음. 불과 1-2년 전까지만 해도 익숙하지 않아서 아무렇지 않게 앉는 사람들이 많이 보였는데, 요즘은 배려석이 만원 지하철에서도 비어있는 모습을 꽤나 자주 목격함. 그러나 여전히 지하철 문 열리자마자 그 곳으로 급하게 걸어가 앉는 사람들은 있다... 이러한 이유로 완전히 장착되지는 않았지만 변화가 빠른 편이라고 생각함. (나는 배려석에 절대 앉지 않음. 솔직한 의견으로 처음에는 군중심리에 의해 압도당함.)
유치원 유니폼은 진짜 귀여운듯 ㅋㅋㅋ 어린애들 줄지어서 노란옷 입고 다같이 손잡고 걸어가는거 보면 너무 귀여움 그냥 ........ 보통 눈에 띄는 색이라 선생님들이 찾기 쉽고.
그리고 교회에서 물티슈 나눠주는거 왜케 뻘하게 터지짘ㅋㅋㅋㅋ 나는 아무런 종교관도 없는 사람인데, 교회에서 왜이렇게 전도에 열정적인지 사실 궁금함. 며칠전에 카페에서 일하고 있는데 6살 정도 돼보이는 애기가 들어와서 교회 이름이랑 번호적힌 건빵 주면서 하나님 믿으라고함 ㅋㅋㅋㅋ 강요하지만 않으면 나쁘게 생각하지는 않는데 왜 이렇게 전도에 열정적인지 궁금...
고등학생들이 미드나잇까지 공부한다라 .. 🤔 내가 학구열 높은 지역에서 자라지 않아서 그런가(수도권) 2014년에 고등학교 입학했는데 처음부터 강제 야자 없었음. 그냥 신청자만 모아서 했는데 사람이 너무 없어서 1학년 14교실중 교실 2개에 몰아서 자습함 그마저도 꽉 안찼음 ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ 내가 개념이 좀 없었던건가 7교시만 끝나면 집가느라 바빴는데.... personal life, hobby 즐길 시간 많았음 (대학은 어찌저찌 인서울로 합격하긴함) 그리고 초딩이 9시 쯤 부터 수업해서 저녁 6시에 끝난다는건 대체 어디서 날라온 정보임 ? 9시 수업 시작은 맞는데 정규수업으로만 따지면 초딩은 6교시가 끝 아님 ??? 그리고 주에 1회 이상씩 4교시 있지 않나요?
아이템으로 표현하고 싶어하는 커플은 잘 모르겠고.. 모솔이라..
그리고 한국이 서양문화에 있어서 생각보다 동떨어져 있다는건 진짜 개소리 같은데? 학교에도 지구본.세계지도 같은 geography 가 전혀 없다니..? 12년 학교 생활 하면서 지구본 있는 반도 있었고 세계지도 붙어있는 반도 있었고 세계지도가 아예 그려져있는 칠판도 있었음 필요할때 열어 쓰는거. 지도말고도 원고지, 악보칠판 있지 않았나요..? (ㅈㅅ 용어모름) 그리고 팝송도 어딜가나 흔하게 흘러나오고 저기에 음식이 언급되지는 않았지만 서양식 식단이 우리들 식단 꽤 차지하지 않나 🤔
한국인들이 커피 좋아하는건 사실인거같다 특히 아아
그리고 쓰레기통 진짜 없음.. 이건 솔직히 불편하다고 느낌.
보신탕은 진짜.... 한국 싫은데 논리적이지 못한 애들이 너네는 개 먹잖아~! 이 말부터 하곤 하는데 내 주변에 보신탕 좋아하는 사람 정말 드물고 보신탕 집도 이제는 흔하지 않은듯 ...
그냥 영상보고 느낀 나의 주절주절 ㅎ
Number #4 is So wrong

F or 25 years we have provided deluxe wilderness outpost fishing trips from our Armstrong location into beautiful Wabakimi Provincial Park and surrounding lakes.
Yes, we take you where the fishing is extraordinary , but there is more than fishing. Yearly family gatherings sharing a wilderness experience in comfort. Father - son (or daughter) bonding trips or Husband and wife celebrating a second honeymoon with the added spectacular outpost fishing or `the buddy trips where the tall tales get taller.
Its a big time stress reliever! . how do you think about anything else when you are fighting a fish?
Greg and I had a great week. we caught over 1000 walleye. There were well over 200 in the slot size (>18"). This is the most large walleye that have ever been caught on a trip to whiteclay for me. The slot size protection is working. It seems that each trip has more large fish being caught. Our largest northern was 43". It was caught on a jig while walleye fishing.
Greg and I sent see what you missed letters to about a dozen folks. Hope that translates into a large group for next June. . Fran and I are looking forward to the August fishing trip .

Received your card. Congratulations on 25 Years! We speak often about the great times we had at Ogoki! A Tribute to you both!
Best Regards, Rich Craddock.
What a nice surprise to find your post card in my mail yesterday. Twenty-five years is a long time to do anything; much less a business like yours with all the uncertainties of weather, exchange-rates, two-country economies, etc. There is a reason why your business has survived and (hopefully) thrived. you do the wilderness fishing experience better than anyone in the outdoor sport vacation business.
Dear Judy and Paul,
Congratulations on 25 years. I have many fond memories of my time with Jack at Ogoki. Hope all is well with you.
. . . Nicole will take you on a guided tour!
This website will take you every step of the way for a worry free fishing vacation!
Let us introduce ourselves; Judy & Paul Boucher and family. Weve been doing this for 25 years and have learned a thing or two on how to take the worry out of the wilderness experience. Our staff will help you with anything you may not understand or solve any mechanical glitch right away. In short: we treat you like family!
Just a note to let you know our recent fishing junket to your Mojikit South Outpost.
Ive been coming to Armstrong area since 1972 and have probably flown in with 6-7 different outfitters over the years to numerous outposts. Your Mojikit South camp is clearly the nicest camp I have been to. The cabin is beautiful and roomy. Great kitchen and dining area. Beautiful screened in deck and outside porch overlooking the channel. Large chest freezer and a frig that actually keeps things cold. Screened in fishing cleaning house with running water. Bedrooms that are roomy. Vaulted ceiling the the cabin is a plus. The cabin is centrally located to both the lake and the Ogoki Reservoir.
The boats are the best that Ive ever experienced at an outpost. The inside bottoms consist of flat carpeted panels. easy to get in and out of. 1st time Ive fished an outpost with "dry" feet. The boats had comfortable swivel seats and 15 & 20 hp 4-stroke engines that worked great.
We will definitely be back. Everything about Ogoki Frontier was quality. My two grandchildren had the time of their lives, as did the other 2 members of our party. Thanks for the memories.
