Paying for Medical checkup and apartment maintenance/water

Could someone please advise their experience/knowledge regarding payment for medical checkup which is necessary to obtain the ARC.

I was charged 89,000 won which was deducted from my first salary.

I was also charged 35,000 won for water/maintenance on my apartment, which is going to be deducted monthly. Is this the norm?

This is my first time in Korea so not sure what is the usual. Would appreciate any feedback, thanks.

Welcome, welcome, welcome! The kind folks at For Foreigners are inviting you to the inaugral open mic night in their fine hostelry.

You can play guitar! You can sing! You can speak poetically! You are a funny motherlicker with jokes coming out of your speak box! What are you doing sitting on your ass wasting your talents? Come down for 9:30pm and indulge yourself.

There will be a 1st prize of a 100,000 Won bar tab, 2nd prize of 50,000 and 3rd prize of 30,000 plus drink promotions (for anybody who just wants to watch) between 9:30 and 12:00 (3,000 won for vodka, gin and rum mix).

University Positions- the dream job

Please, Give us a break!

Adverts should say: Moron with no self worth required to manage classes of variable quality

Qualities: loser with limited social skills; peon with few teaching skills or team ethic.

Qualifications: Master in Toss all

Job specification- to understand that nobody wants you there, globalization isn't important and neither are you. Therefore, you are an underling and will soon become a pointless relic. Do the bare minimum and know your place within the organizational structure. Do not have any ideas!!

Benefits- absolutely pathetic- esp the salary, housing allowance and travel. No doubt some sucker will agree to it.

Clinic/Hospital in Changwon?

Wondering what is a good Doctor/clinic or hospital in the Changwon area that has English speaking staff  ?

Friday, July 1, 2011 - 19:00

Come and celebrate Canada's 154th Birthday with all your favorite hoser, eh.
We'll be rocking out to some of the finest music and drinks Canada has to offer (which isn't much) come check out the ritualistic chugging of Maple Syrup and beaver chasing (pun intended) at your favorite Changwon hangout. I even hear Uncle Sam might clear out the bar to lay down a makeshift ice rink.......Uncle Sam?......well if that doesn't entice you maybe the drink specials will.

1. Canadian Club (from the great city of Windsor, ON) will be 3,000won for a shot.
2. Free indian buffet - starts at 7pm (Chicken curry with Nan)
3. Ladies get 2 free coupons (vodka, gin, rum only) if they order their first drinks before 11pm.

We hope to see all our favorite Canucks and adopted Canucks (Rudder?) out to celebrate Canada's 154th birthday. HAPPY BIRTHDAY CANADA!!!!!
