I hate saying goodbye. I always want to cry when I have to separate from people whom I
love and cherish dearly, but I know that’s a part of life. My
Korea University International Summer Exchange Program had just come to an end
and I have a lot of mixed feelings. I feel completely and utterly blessed for
having met the people I did in the program and it was by a crazy coincidence
that we all came together and became friends. I never expected my group of
friends to be as tight as we were and now having spent a fulfilling and
unforgettable six weeks together, I feel incredible sadness over the fact that
we all have to say goodbye. Because we are all from different parts of the
world (we were a very diverse group of people- from Sweden, USA, UK,
Netherlands, Japan, Canada (me), Hong Kong, China, to Singapore..etc), we know
it will be impossible for all of us to ever be in the same place at the same
time again. Thus, it makes it even more sad that this could be the last time I
ever see some of my friends (*crossing fingers that it won’t happen!*.
grateful for having met you during the ISC program and I will never forget the
wonderful memories we shared together. We came together so randomly but somehow
it all clicked and we were instantly bonded like glue. I couldn’t have imagined
a better experience in ISC and I cherish all of our wonderful quirky and weird
moments together. 😛 (CJ! What’s the clock? What the heck?! Aboout. US has 50
STATES!! Hanging out like hobos in front of GS25) Please don’t forget me and
find me if you are ever in Vancouver or maybe even in Hong Kong! If I ever
travel to any of your countries in the future, you will be sure to get a
facebook message or call from me 😀
the program, we decided to try out this Indian restaurant near our campus
called Bina. The owners are Indian so it is a very authentic Indian restaurant.
triangle pastries filled with potatoes. The green sauce in the back is sort of
like a mint sauce and it goes super well with the Samosas!
and Tandoori Chicken. These were
both very delicious and I was particularly impressed by the chicken. It was
very tender and flavourful!
Indian restaurant, I ALWAYS must order naan bread. If they have garlic naan bread, even better. Luckily
they serve garlic naan here so we ordered a few baskets of these 😛 On the left
is a Prawn Curry and it was my
favourite entree dish of the night. The prawns were extremely plump and tender
while the sauce was creamy and not overly spicy. My type of curry 😀
delicious as well.
night. I would’ve never thought I could get authentic, delicious, Indian
cuisine in the heart of Seoul but it is possible!Thanks Peter for recommending this place!
a fantastic last dinner at Korea University and I will miss you all!
are not forgotten! :D)
