Looking to do some good while you’re in Korea? From Seoul to Suncheon, Courtney “Coco” Tait shows us how to give back.

Once you’ve explored the local temples, tried all your neighborhood barbecue joints, hiked a nearby mountain or three, disrobed at the spa, and sipped one too many pints of draft Cass, you may be itching for some fresh experiences on the expat path. Volunteering opportunities in Korea are vast, varied, and surprisingly easy to coordinate: anyone with a few spare hours could soon find themselves rescuing a dog, serving soup to the homeless, or screening films on the plight of North Koreans.  Here are six suggestions to get you started.

Yeouido Spring Flower Festival

It's my first time to see Cherry Blossom flower aka Sakura, and boy, was I late! By the time I woke up, all of my friends were waiting for me at the lobby's apartment!

Now my outfit is not perfect without bright accessories for spring. :(

Anyway, the one that we went was in Yeoudo.
There a lot of Sakura's around Seoul and Korea, but we chose Yeoudo because:-
1. There's festival - performance, food, lots of people watching
2. It's the nearest, in Seoul!

And guess what, among all other important thing, I forget my camera.
Also, to make matter worse, my handphone battery wasn't in full bar.
Can you believe it?!
Do enjoy pictures from my limited handphone camera.

Busan e-FM Week 16: Technology

About 'Open Mike in Busan'

Introduction

Today I wanted to talk about technology in Korea. I graduated from university with a degree in Computer Science, and then worked for many years as a software engineer, so it’s a subject which is very close to my heart. I’m a technology geek... or ex-geek anyway.

Jangsan Running Spots - Busan Awesome

http://busan.cityawesome.com

Visit our Facebook page (and like us please!)

*I’ve been doing a lot of running since moving to Busan, and I’m looking to map out some of the better running and biking places people have come across. I’m starting with Jangsan because that’s where I live, if you’ve got any suggestions, let us know!

Jangsan is an excellent neighborhood for running. The toughest decision is usually whether you want the mountains or the beaches. For anybody living in, moving to, or just planning on visiting the Haeundae area, running can be a great way to get a sense of direction and see the area. Here’s a map and description of my three favorite running spots, all starting from Jangsan Station:

Support Sae Gil Women's Shelter Food and Toiletries Drive!

Date: 
Wednesday, April 13, 2011 - 23:50

The Saegil Women's Shelter in Busan needs our help!!!!!!  ATEK Busan Volunteers has begun a city wide donation drive. The donations that the shelter needs would include the following:  Canned foods, drinks, toothpaste, toothbrush, clothes, English teaching materials, toys, tissues, toilet paper, shampoo, soap, sanitary supplies, medicine, laundry detergent, utensils, etc.  

They are badly in need of said supplies due to the recent Korean law that restricts welfare for single mothers and children.  

We strongly encourage supply donations rather than in cash.  There are donation boxes located at the following places below.  

We hope that you participate in this year's drive event.  Stay tuned for weekly drink promotions and events at each of the bar below!


Sexual Harrasment on Intercity Buses

Of course, I’ve never been sexually harassed on an overnight bus myself, but then I’ve never seen it happen nor heard anyone ever complaining about it either. Are things really as bad as this article makes out?
