Happy Birthday Korean Style

I didn't really know what to expect as I prepared to turn 27 in this far, far away land, but other than missing friends and family, I had an outstanding birthday.

After my first period class, some of my students came and escorted me toward the cafeteria where they had assembled a mound of Korean treats, including two with lit candles. They preceded to sing happy birthday and cheer like mad. It was pretty cute.

My birthday haul!

Then the English teachers had cake for me.
My awesome cake.

Cake with chopsticks!

Fellow teachers.

After school I trekked to Ansan to meet up with some friends for dinner at a sushi restaurant. My experience with Japanese food, sushi especially, is very limited. But it couldn't have been better.  I can't wait to go back.

Tempura and side dishes

More appetizers

My volcano roll - so delicious

All in all, it was a good day!
