In Kuala Lumpur

We arrived in Kuala Lumpur this morning after staying in a small airport hotel last night. Taking the airport express train, we were carried from countryside through to suburbs and then briefly through the city until we alighted at KL Sentral, the main train station of the city.

After booking train tickets on to Ipoh for tomorrow, we found a taxi which took us in the central shopping and business area of the city, Bukit Bintang. It is also where we have reserved a room in a quaint guesthouse within sight of a large hotel we had been considering before our friend recommended otherwise. As we had arrived too early to check in, we left our bags with reception and set out to take a short wander around the locale.


Recognising Value in Korea

There’s a lot to be said for value. Much of what we value, or how we place value on something, depends on our recognition of the use and importance of the particular subject in question. Like a four day work week, which may have more value to a person who regularly works a five or six day week than to a person who only works three days a week. It’s all about how much worth we put in particular things.

Today is May 5. Up until around seven years ago this day meant nothing to me. There’s no reason to really celebrate May 5th in Ireland, other than when it is the first Monday of the month of May. In Korea, today is Children’s Day. In Mexico and the U.S. , today is Cinco de Mayo which is a day to celebrate Mexican heritage and pride.


Paddy’s Day in Seoul – March 17, 2012

It’s almost Paddy’s Day again. You won’t find a review of the day here, if anything you’ll get a promise never to do it every again! It could

When I’m not awaiting fame to find me I’m usually dig holes I can’t get out of. One of these holes is being chairman of the Irish Association of Korea (IAK). Our biggest event of the year is always Saint Patrick’s Day! We’ve had a few fine days over the years, and this year we are hoping on another memorable occasion. Our blood pressure has been nicely primed to burst over the past few months getting ready for the day, so do me a favour come along and have a good day out – bring the kids, the adults, or both - there’s plenty for everyone!

Click on this ould poster and it’ll take ye straight to the IAK’s website with full details of the event, plus plenty of other delicious Irish in Korea linkology!
