It's Alive!

So, we just went out to dinner with our coworkers again.  Not quite sure what the occasion was but hey, nothing wrong with a good dinner with fellow Koreans right? We got in a couple of cars and they drove us to another part of town, Da-Dong or something like that.  It seems that a lot of our co-workers are related, our managers sister now works there and the other manager (who just started) is the sister of someone who works in the office downstairs.  Anyway, it was a dinner of raw fish.  It wasn't sushi or sashimi, although those were some of the sides, it was eaten like all meat wrapped up in lettuce or sesame leaves with a spicy red pepper sauce and lots of raw garlic for me!  There were also a couple of live things that were brought to the table.  The first round of live shellfish neither Mike or I had the stomach to try.  But then they brought out octopus  tentacles that were still moving.  Mike had the guts to try these ones, and said they were good.  I just poked at them but couldn't get myself to try them.  However, it was all very tasty and now we're off to hang out with some other wayguks (foreigners)!

Whoa, what a dinner - things still moving and all = hmmmmm, good way to stay on a diet!!! Michael, I'm glad to know you were daring enough to try the moving octopus -- like I always said when you guys were younger "just try it, and if you don't like it you can spit it out" -- see -- you can't always tell a book by it's cover:) - Sounds like a fun experience!!! Chris & Courtney's 1 yr anniv is on Mon 16th:) - already a year!!! Love Maw
