December 5th – marks the day I had to take a test to see where my Korean level is at. Before that, a student I met yesterday, decided to have brunch together at Lotteria – a popular burger joint in Korea. There was a promotion, only 2900 Won for a complete meal with burger, fries, and drinks. Furthermore, we can order at the vending machine, so no speaking Korean required.
While I would like to blame my cold for my poor performance, I think at the end of the day, I must admit I was a terrible student. Somehow, I was happy the teacher didn’t put me into introductory Korean ( I was put in beginners Korean).
In the afternoon, my roommate and two others had to go to go Homeplus (which is like a supermarket) to buy daily necessities (생활 필수품 – saenghwal pilsupum) such as tissues, detergent, and all the fun stuff.
For dinner, my roommate and her friend decided to have Chinese-Korean food. Not wanting to order Jajangmyeon again I ordered Jjamppong 짬뽕, which is a spicy chili soup. We also shared a Tangsuyok 탕수육, which is sweet and sour pork!!
