English Speaking Dermatologist - NEEDED!!! Please Help! If Dr.Choi doesn't work out Anonymous
If Dr.Choi doesn't work out for some reason, you can also try Dr.Park -- Yeonsan-dong subway, exit 16. Right outside of the exit, the building on your right-hand side, 4th (or 5th?) floor, called Su Clinic (Su Pi Bu Gwa in Korean). He speaks English very well and is a great guy to boot! Good luck!

Why?!?!?! - Pet Adoption And remember... sub
...that if you decide to get a pet and want to take it back home with you, traveling with one can be expensive/troublesome; especially if you'd like to visit some places on the way home! I agree with the original poster, it's pretty unfair to the animal and pretty selfish on your behalf if you plan to leave your pet behind. You could have a valid reason though, but it's always a good idea to...

Why?!?!?! - Pet Adoption there are many ways to not be lonely... Anonymous
a pet is a commitment no matter what part of the world you are in...if you have no intention of keeping the pet then don't buy it. My cat is my baby. I paid for her to come with me to Korea and i will pay for her to go whereever I go after Korea. I cannot imagine my life without my cat. Nor can I imagine how someone can part with their pet so casually. If you're lonely, pay someone to keep...

Do the oki-dukkboki Don't give up yet! Anonymous
Before you give up on deokboggi completely, please please please go to the deokboggi restaurant in Nampodong. From the main road, go straight through the Nampo Book Store/Art Valley building to the street on the other side. Turn left. It's a few shops down on your right. It has a bright orange sign with a cartoon of the owner holding a pot of deokboggi. Order deokboggi with extra ramyan (if...

Why?!?!?! - Pet Adoption I agree mostly, it's not very Anonymous
I agree mostly, it's not very thoughtful to purchase a pet when you know you will have to find a home for it when you leave. I would love to have a pet to keep me company around the home, but it would do my head-in to have to leave it here when I complete my time in the trenches, not knowing whether 'Tom or Jerry' will be all right. That said, let's not forget some people find abandoned animals,...

Why?!?!?! - Pet Adoption I agree, its not really fair kristindanks27
I agree, its not really fair to the animals. Cats and dogs can become very attached to their owners and its not easy for them to have to leave after a short while and end up with someone else.

Where can you purchase international return postage? PrePaid Postage Anonymous
I had experience w/ the Consulate in Chicago. They would mail my passport back to me if I had an account with UPS or FedEx. They could just use the account no. and print out the shipping label. See if Atlanta has the same.

I Am a Fat Expat. Hear Me Chew. Why have you given up? sinfonian
"it follows that female expats tend to be fat, loud, opinionated, ugly, bitches who are completely unmarriable."

What are you trying to prove here? You're only reinforcing the stereotype.


"Oh, I just stopped trying."

Why have you given up? This only reinforces the lazy expat stereotype. You mentioned many expat women are fat. In Korea, being fat is associated...

Waves in Haeundae Beach nice to see response! Anonymous
Nice that others have a little to say! Most say I'm an ungrateful "foreigner" and should learn to adapt to Asia. Well, been in Asia for 8 years. Anyway, wish the people in charge would give more credit to people with abilities. Most foreigners CAN swim, with just the opposite being Asians. But when they don't even let them in ankle deep water!! If I never hear another whistle it will be too...

Waves in Haeundae Beach waves last week dcross

Yeah, I think the most frustrating thing about the surfing ban is the arbitrary enforcement and just the unreasonable  and unflexible enforcers. We surfed good mipo on sunday and even gwangali was looking fun.  With the growing popularity (take a look at the out of control "surf zone" at songjeong) maybe we can come up with a solution or compromise.  Why not do what...

Waves in Haeundae Beach surfing allowed, only for the early birds mattytown

Swimming was banned all day but surfing and body boarding was allowed before 9AM. The waves were all time, perfect swell window.  Im still on cloud 9.  Being from San Diego I am starving for a decent wave in this city.  I got my fill, pretty much had my pick of every set.  I guess I shouldn't be surprised that Koreans can't surf when the waves are good. ...

Waves in Haeundae Beach waves in Haeundae Beach Anonymous
hockeyrick, The reason for this is that a huge proportion of the people at the beach would get into trouble if they were allowed to swim in anything remotely resembling a swell, it's sad but true, if you spent much time in any of the swimming pools around Busan you would quickly come to this realization. Really mate, if you wanna catch some waves you'll have to wait until September and October,...

TESOL Diploma TESOL, if I’m not mistaken is Anonymous
TESOL, if I'm not mistaken is an official certificate for teaching ESL. ESL certificates can be generic and unrecognized. I'm pretty sure for an institution to be authorized to grant TESOL certificates, their programs have to be accredited. The schools that offer just general ESL certificates probably just give you a lesson in teaching English their way and give you a piece of paper for your...

You think guys stand in the corners of bars and rate women on their marriagability? As in, "Hey Bob, check out that one. I wouldn't marry her if my life depended on it." Sure. Whatever.
