February 6, 2017 – Day 68 – Daegu
It is the start of another week!! I also signed up for a Barista Class with SangSang University, which is supported by KT&T, the tobacco company. In Korea, there are many cheap classes brought to you by large corporeations such as Homeplus, YMCA etc …
The class was all the way across town (about an hour away by bus) and … OMG, I think I am too confident in my abilities because I don’t understand a single word the teacher was saying at all!!! I don’t think I can cut it as a barista. Now, every Monday I will feel very nervous and insecure.
February 7th, 2017 – Day 69 – Gyongsan
I told one of the people working with Sangsang that I can’t go to this cocktail class on Tuesday because it is too difficult and too far. Instead, I stayed behind and ate at the 3900 won restaurant across the street from Yeungnam 🙂
February 8, 2017 – Day 70 – Daegu
Despite having a quiz on Friday, our class was super chill! It was actually fun! We learned about Gyeongju’s attractions and then made paper origami!
After class, my friend and I went to Daegu! On the metro, we found a place called Tokyo Dining, which is a Japanese restaurant! It was in a small alley and it took a while to find. However, we were shocked to find so many people inside … we actually had to wait for seats. We ordered a salad and tonkatsu. Both my friend and I liked the salad more … I think we really miss the vegetables.
We accidentally met up with my friend’s friend! She works here as a waitress and her Korean is perfect! She already graduated from Yeungnam language institute with a level 6.
More shopping ensues and in the end, we just rested at a coffee shop called T class. The coffee was a little bit expensive, in fact, the price of one drink was similar to the cake … However, the atmosphere was really nice and I got to finish my presentation for Friday.
February 9, 2017 – Day 71 – Gyeongsan
So I changed the date and did the cocktail class on Thursday instead! I don’t think it was a good idea… Korean hs not improved in two days … I was so nervous about the class that I didn’t take any photos … just the food I ate before class. I didn’t have the name written down fo the nth time. However, it was next to the D3 Cafe shop and the restaurant is almost an one-man show. He takes your order, make the food and takes the money after. The restaurant has a nice western feel to it too.
February 10, 2017 – Day 72 – Daegu Suseongmot
I was going to meet with a caligraphy classmate but I can’t write Korean so I said let’s meet another day inside of a little later. In any case, my friend and I (yes, I brought a friend!) went to eat at a very cheap place in Beomeo Station! It only costs 5000 won for an entire set (kimbap and Tteokbokk) ! It is a Kimbap place place just across fom Hanssim.
… then we went to Suseongmot to somehow the Korean person I meet somehow got my message and came by to Suseongmot. We settled at Angel-in-us and just talked … it was cold and windy but we made an appointment to go to Palgonsan together the next day!
…. and that was the entire week!!! Last week of school¬
