My birthday celebration

My birthday celebration

So I turned 41 a couple of weeks ago. What? What? Wow. 41. Definite reason to PAR-TAY!

I organized a little birthday shindig at a Mexican food restaurant in Dunsan, Don Enrique. Now it’s not my Tex-Mex, but it was good. If you’re wondering what Korean Mexican food looks like, here you go. Notice all the cabbage…

I had a really good group of friends show up. I am definitely blessed in the friendships that I have made here in Korea. Honestly, I was a little worried before moving over here if I would make some good friends. I didn’t need to worry at all. Thank you God!

So because it was my birthday, the owner of the restaurant came over and gave me a tequila shot. I have never in my life had a tequila shot. I know. I know.
So…what better place than to have my first tequila shot?
Emily said I was a pro. Is that a good thing or a bad thing?
After dinner, I persuaded (I didn’t have to beg too hard) several friends to go to a norebang with me. James, Alicia, Michael, Katie, Emily, and I found this little norebang near the restaurant. None of us had ever been there. It was quite an interesting place. There were drawings of naked women all over the place. Interesting, I tell ya. We didn’t pay much attention to them though because we were too busy singing and dancing!

We paid 30,000 won for an hour and a half, but the dude kept giving us more time. And more time. And more time. We got there I think at 9:00. At 12:20 am, he gave us yet another hour. But it was after midnight, and we all had school the next day. We probably could have stayed there another 2 hours for free. Oh well. There’s always next time! And yes….there will DEFINITELY be a next time!

It was one fabulous birthday. One that I will never forget!
I’ve been here in Korea now 8 months. Can you believe it? I only have 4 months left, and I plan on living it up as much as I can!
