Lazy Days

Today I went to the COEX, shopping mall. It is huge. We did not get through all of it, it is one of the largest malls in Asia and it is all underground. Amazing. There is also an aquarium in the mall, we didn't go to it but eventually I will. This picture is of the Trade Center. I don't know if you can tell but the two tiny specs on the left side of the building are window washers. I know you can hardly see them... but I don't have paintbrush to circle them with. One spec is in line with the red time and date stamp on the photo. Maybe click on the photo and that will blow it up a little bit so you can see, the point is though, that it is one huge building.
Okay and this is what I ate for dinner. I don't remember what it is called but I remember what is in it. (Now I think it is Sashimi) I will start with the bottom layer and work up. Lettuce, peanut butter, capers, raw salmon, pieces of sprouts and radish, sweet pickle, fish eggs, then a cherry and an olive to top it off. At first I was like "Why did I order this?" but it was actually delicious! This is more of a Japanese dish than a Korean one, by the way.

yuck, I know I am not very adventurous. Hey maybe I should come over, I bet I could lose some weight. On 2nd thought you did say there was a coldstone creamery.....

Erica, actually the peanut butter wasn't overwhelming, could hardly taste it...it's needed to balance out the many other flavors I think. But I already decided that if/when you come I am taking you there.
Jill, yeah, I was worried about it too and I'm not feeling 100% today but that could also be because I was out 'til 8 last night errr this morning partying...
Aunt Debbie, yeah, I am not gonna lie I was scared at first, but I was like what is the worst that could happen? I hate it and don't eat the rest? I throw up? I've done both before and am still alive to tell the tale...So I ate it and it was very good. On the weight loss thing, you can get pretty much any American food here: McDonalds, KFC, etc. so if you hated the food you could eat at one of those places. But in general my new friends don't eat at those places a lot...So not only am I hesitant to eat the food but if I am starving I have to use chopsticks and that is difficult, for me. Probably the most effective weight loss ever, because if you are willing to try the food you still struggle to feed yourself.

Ok, leave the salmon and fish eggs off and it sounds like something I might like! Hmmm partying until 8 this morning? Guess that's why there is no new post :)

Love, Mom

Mom, when/if you and dad come to visit I am also taking you here and you will try it and you will like it...But you will love it here there is coffee like everywhere you go! And yes, the reason that there is no new post today is becasue I spent today trying to be a human being again and not just mush. Some of my friends party a lot here...
