Any good salad bars in Busan? Re: Any good salad bars in Busan? chinesewoman

So, I went to this Salad Bar in Nampodong I mentioned with my friend...

I would say, if you don't like seafood that much, don't go there.

It's said to be Italian but don't expect it will be authentic.

Plus they don't serve dessert...

$20 is not cheap for a salad bar like this in Busan.

Lotte Department Store "Receipt Raiders" Re: Lotte Department Store "Receipt Raiders" lee-bum-suk

This reminds me of the women that camp out when a new store opens just to get a free plastic bowl or three rolls of toilet paper. No wonder why krispy's stopped giving away free donuts. Anyone who waits more than a minute in line to get anything free apparently doesn't have anything better to do and should just lie down and return to the earth. .

Is this a bad situation or not??? please help. Re: Is this a bad situation or not??? please help. lee-bum-suk

I never said you didn't teach them, you have, so have I but just not year 3 or 4 because it doesn't exist in these programs. According to you these people come out of a school with a BA degree in hairdressing, skin care and my personal favorite; animal grooming?  

Just show me that they have 4 year programs in these and I will let it go.

Is this a bad situation or not??? please help. Re: Is this a bad situation or not??? please help. Dogarse

Well LBS I have personally taught at one of the universities mentioned and I have personally taught all of the majors I mentioned but if my word is not good enough for you then that is your problem not mine.

If it's that important to you perhaps you could ask your wife to make a phone call and verify it.

Is this a bad situation or not??? please help. Re: Is this a bad situation or not??? please help. lee-bum-suk

I should also mention that in class 2 on the back of my handout sheet i make them put away everything off their desk but the paper and a pencil/eraser and like a test setting I tell them to draw the Korean flag.

When they properly draw the flag correctly I let that student leave. Initially, I think I had 2 out of 22 students that drew it correctly the first time and...

No they don't offer 4 year programs in those fields. Show me the links to where it says such, until then it's you who's full of it. I asked you before to provide proof, which you haven't and I;m sorry but your word just isn't good enough.  

As for the map, they draw it themselves on the back of my opening class handout sheet and I in turn draw one on the board. I write...

Full of it as usual LBS.  Youngasn University and Tongmyon university both offer 4 year degrees in such subjects and there are probably other that I don't know about.

On the original point about geography would you be kind enough to send me a copy of the quiz you gave your students.  I would love to see how my students compare.

New Indian & Nepali Restaurant in PNU-MAYA Re: New Indian & Nepali Restaurant in PNU-MAYA ianjkim

maybe... everyone have different tastes.....

So.. even I've never found good taste of Indian restaurant in Korea....

I got it in India ONLY.... for my taste.....

However, I just suggest that Maya is really similar to India.

Some other guys don't agree, OK.. that's their tastes...

Actually champ I think it might be too late for you. I believe you have to do it on the same day you purchase the camera!

Lotte Department Store "Receipt Raiders" Re: Lotte Department Store "Receipt Raiders" SolidChamp

In general, department stores like Lotte and Shinsegae are absolutely more expensive than smaller independent shops.  The Omega Seamaster I bought was roughly 400,000won cheaper at an independent dealer.  Also take into account that some dealers you can buy goods second hand.

As for this Nikon, I just wanted a mid-range starting camera, and they had this one on "sale",...

Is this a bad situation or not??? please help. Re: Is this a bad situation or not??? please help. lee-bum-suk

Name changes, combined programs, this that, exactly my point Helen. You can't get a 4year college degree in hairdressing or flight attendent. Those are 2year programs with an option in a BA if you continue within an arts program.

Koreans didn't invent this system Helen, we had this certificate program that can lead to a BA 20 years ago. It's a scam to keep people in school...

Lotte Department Store "Receipt Raiders" Re: Lotte Department Store "Receipt Raiders" Mr. Bascomb

My wife just got a free pass to Spaland at Shinsegae worth 12,000w by showing her receipt that she had spent more than 10,000w.

The department stores are really expensive but often they sell different model that are not offered at other stores or online.  For large ticket items you should ask for discounts or other freebies.  The salesperson has some flexibility in what...

Lotte Department Store "Receipt Raiders" Re: Lotte Department Store "Receipt Raiders" mattsid

A little off topic. To the original poster. How do you find Lottes prices compared to say a small independent shop or online shops like gmarket. I always presumed they would be more expensive.  But never really looked into it.

Lotte Department Store "Receipt Raiders" Re: Lotte Department Store "Receipt Raiders" Paul Gaasenbeek
They get points or even cash coupons back in return. I recently bought a teadmill from the mall and we got like 30 buck voucher to be used whenever we want. So it is a free 30 bucks. You can get gifts, passes to movies, saunas and so on. You dont have to give up your receipt to get gifts either. So in the future, you should go to customer service spots and get your self a free gift or certificate...

Lotte Department Store "Receipt Raiders" Re: Lotte Department Store "Receipt Raiders" erikanim

The reason they are doing that is because the department store offers free gifts for a certain amount that you spend. Obviously the more you spend the better the gift.

Cable TV/ Internet package? Re: Cable TV/ Internet package? crudler
My basic cable and broadband internet (including modem rental) is only 30,000 per month.  I think it's with TBroad, in Namcheon.  To see what's available in your area, you could walk around and look for flyers.  If you're in a major apartment building, you may be stuck with whatever they offer.

That's exactly what your students in your class would say when you talk about the Geo. If you want to know the latest name of those colleges, Naju univ. which is about to be changed to Kokuryeo college holds 항공운항학과 as a combined 2 & 4 yr program...

''Bumsuk, you say you only see Koreans in your Korean place. They look so Korean; how did you see their passport-''

If it walks like a duck and quacks like a duck, it's a duck. How could they be anything else but Korean- if they are something else then they are the most bi-lingual illiterates(can't read or write in two different languages) on the planet.

Helen, you are telling me things that I all ready know and understand.

Pu-kyung university doesn't teach hairdressing, or flight attendants or any of the other majors that were mentioned. Those are 2 year college programs at junior colleges. List me one 4year college that teaches this. They might teach something of the like in the dept. of continuing education but you certainly...
