coffee grinder! most locate! Depends on what you want and mattsid

Depends on what you want and how much you're willing to spend, but they are pretty plentiful if you know where to look.

If you want a cheap whirly blade thing (not the best), just go to any branch of Starbucks. Costs about 50 bucks. They also have a better burr grinder that is over 100 bucks which would do a fairly good job.

Many of the major supermarket chains sell wooden...

sorry it sucked.  i just offered my insight as far as i could.  if you want more concrete information, hire a translator or a korean friend, go down to the immigration office and inquire there.

Import tax and duty For anyone interested I found blackmint

For anyone interested I found out some info.

If the total cost (of item, shipping, insurance) is less then 150,000 Won ($120) you do not pay anything. If it's over that, for most goods is 8% Custom Duties and 10% Tax.

Import tax and duty More trouble than it's worth. Cliff_Dangers

More trouble than it's worth. Why post a 100P bike from the UK? For the same cost as posting your bike you could probably just buy a bike here. My wife just bought a new bike from Home plus for W100,000.

canadian couple in Busan need help with E2 visa up until a couple of years 143busan

up until a couple of years ago, foreigners could take a ferry to fukuoka, go to the korean embassy there, and have an E2 visa stamped in their passport and start work immediately,  but in recent years, maybe less than two, this has all changed.  the process of obtaining an E2 visa is much more complicated than this.

you've even got to have an interview at a korean embassy in...

canadian couple in Busan need help with E2 visa if its her first e-2 visa, barbel
if its her first e-2 visa, then it is true, she has to get her first visa from her native country. if it is her 2nd/3rd etc,then she can go to japan. if it is her 2nd visa, then the boss either doesn't understand about the laws of immigration or there is a problem with her paperwork.

my advice...as i've learned to do...find a quiet everyday place. i go to the local makgulli joint, and ask them to turn the tv on to SBS Sports. they never say no. go in with a couple friends and have food, beers, whatever.

Premier League footy That's something I'd like to LFCfanatic9
That's something I'd like to know too. Most likely as the Premiership is growing exponentially these days. Used to watch it at O'brien's at Gaya since I lived near the Nampodong area. Heard Craig left the business. Anybody still go there?

English speaking vet near Guseo-dong The place I go to is in Guseo Anonymous
The place I go to is in Guseo 2 dong and it is near Dusil subway stop. You come out exit 1 and there should be a McDonald's. If there isn't, find the subway exit that has a McDonalds. Go straight up the hill. You will come to a stairway. Go up the stairway, and cross the road. Once across, turn left and go straight. the vet is on that side of the road.. maybe a block/block and a half. The...

Looking for Hummus or Tahini Nampo~Sasang Anonymous
Tenorman, The best way to get from Yeongdo-Sasang is probably the subway on the weekends, unless you go early morning. You can take the 126 local bus which leaves from one of the bus stops along the main road that bisects PIFF arcade and Jagalchi Market, make sure you take it from the PIFF side of the street, I think the stop is near Starbucks-have a wander about to find it, but it's debatable...

Looking for Hummus or Tahini Thanks! How do I get there! Tenorman
Thanks for the reply!! How do I get there from Yeongdo (near 75 Park)? I can take the subway from Nampo-dong to Seomyeon to Sasang. Is there a better route or a bus? I love Middle-Eastern and Greek Food. To be able to make it (or try to) again really makes me very happy. Best Regards, Tenorman

Looking for Hummus or Tahini Tahini and chickpeas Anonymous
Hey you can get tahini and chickpeas in Sasang at Asia Mart, it's near the indian restaurant called Sangam. Just ask the owner of Sangam if you can't find it, his wife runs the store and they both speak excellent English. Sangam is right beside E-Mart. That's where I buy all my tahini, chickpeas, cilantro, and pitas.
