Hi loyal readers of this wonderful blog. Ja, I’m talking to you dear mom and annoying brother. I know I’ve been slow these past few days updating this blog, but what can I do? Chuseok, the Korean equivalent of Thanksgiving, recently passed this peninsula and you know how us myeonuris (daughters-in-law) puts on our slave hats during the three-day Chuseok celebration. We literally became part of our shiomoni’s (Korean mother-in-law) kitchen! Dankie Chuseok. See you again next year.
And to top it all off, after the three-day Chuseok event, which was October 5, was my Nth birthday. I had to muscle all of my strength or what’s left of it to celebrate it with my family and friends. Good thing our company extended our Chuseok holiday up to Monday. So, anyways it all turned out good so I‘m not complaining.
After that uber-busy occasion, Tuesday I went back to work and guess what? A monster of workload stared at me by my desk ready to devour my post Chuseok/Birthday-battered body. Now I know why my sajangnim (Korean company owner) extended our break up to Monday. He wants us to use that one day off to prepare our minds, kindda like meditation, for this week’s office work mayhem. I love you, my sajangnim; you truly care for us employees. Now about that raise…
Oh before I forget, thanks to the unnamed ghostwriter who wrote the first entry of this blog for this month of October (It’s located below this post). Thank you even though I don’t get it why you want to remain anonymous.
P.S. Fall in Korea has finally arrived. So, Ja!
