It was the last meal with many of the teachers. As about 15 will move to different schools. My mentor teacher (main co-teacher) is also leaving, I was so sad but I’ve known for a while. She is really amazing and I will miss her tremendously!
Valentines Day here is a bit different than in the states. On this day Korean girlfriends give gives to their significant others. Whereas in the U.S. its equal exchange, depending on the couple 🙁
One month later on March 14th is White day where the reverse happens. The guy gives the gift to his significant other. Then in April is Black day, can you guess what happens?
This is the day where singles gather together and eat black bean sauce and noodles. Haha it’s kind of cute that they have so many days. I normally think “oh valentines day is so commercial and a waste of money!”
But here its different, well actually its just as commercials as in the states (an I’m sure other countries) but so what. Its fun to see all the couples in love wasting their money on chocolates they probably won’t eat anyway. (shrugs)
All the staff and teachers went out to eat for Spicy Fish soup. I think it was called ” Mauentang”. But I don;t remember. I am really bad at remembering the names of the foods here!
But I have come up with two solutions 🙂 I’ll share them in a different post.
Here are some pictures from the lunch!
What did you do for Valentines Day? What do you think about my lunch?
It was really yummy and very spicy. I love spicy food. It made my nose run which means it was the right level of spicy-ness :p
