Movie and Octopus Dinner

Movie and Octopus Dinner

Last Wednesday to Friday were final exams.  I didn’t have any classes except I had to read the English to Mina and Seora for their exam.  And then they wanted to sing and dance with me so we had an hour of singing and dancing.

Gayong texted me that teachers often leave early one of the final exam days to go do something together.  She invited me to come along.  We went to the movies to see About Time with Rachel McAdams.  Oh.  My.  Goodness.  What an amazing movie.  You absolutely must go see it.  I laughed.  I cried.  I laughed and cried again.  Again, please go see it.  I totally want to see it again.

After the movies, we went to dinner.  This place was not MY choice.  It was an octopus dinner.  I took videos on my phone, but I cannot upload them for some reason.  It’s a Samsung, and I cannot for the life of me figure it out.  In the video, you would see that the octopus goes in the pot alive.  Yes, alive.  All wiggling about.  Slowly it dies as it gets hotter and hotter.

The octopus is hiding.  Yeah, I would be too.

While it’s still alive, she chops it up.  I’m not kidding.

It’s still wiggling.

One of my co-workers had the exact same feeling as me.  It was awful.  She didn’t even want to look.

All chopped up in the soup.

Also, in the video, you would see one of the guys take the octopus head and cut it open so that all the black ink comes out.  Their soup turned completely black.  It was disgusting.  With that, I thought of and finally understood in Finding Nemo, when Inky says, “Ahh. You guys made me ink.”
