From Korea with Love

Kim Min Young  is a very special friend that  my family met  when we were living in South Korea.   She was introduced to me by someone  who work in the base   when she was looking for  someone who could teach her English.    I taught her  for several months  but then we had to leave the country.  We were all sad  because she is like a family to us already.  
Her English name is Amy and she is very tall.  When she walks beside, I look like a kid. hahaha..
My kids were very fond of her.  We truly miss you Amy, I wish that we could go back and visit so we can see each other again.  I am glad that she is keeping in touch with with me.

She sent us a package  last Christmas and they are so cute.  Thank you  (Kamsa Hamnida) Amy!  The box was tore up when it arrived but  the items are all okay.  I think the custom sifted through it thoroughly.
She said that the bag is for good luck, we hang it at our front door during the new year.  She calls it fortune pouch.  Next to it is a set of coasters.  She also sent   a set of pens with a traditional Korean character on the caps, and a  a very pretty pencil case.  From the bottom of our hearts, thanks a lot Amy!
I thank God for blessing us with good  friends!

Hi Rose!

Those gifts are great! Very Korea ang dating! :D

How long did you stay in Korea, by the way? My husband is currently working there, too. (He's Pinoy din.) I've learned quite a handful about Korean culture just by watching my Kdramas and Arirang. Haha!

I hope my son and I can go there one time. In spring particularly, when the cherry blossoms are in full bloom. :D

Hi RS. We stayed there for almost two years before we came back here in the States. I miss living there, there are so much to learn, see, and explore!

I, too, cherish my friends and, indeed, I am in India for a four moonth stay. A dear friend that I have now known 16 years ( met him when he was Royal Caribbean crew ) has opened up his home to me so I am blessed with my own Indian family.
