Today I went to see the first sunrise of the year (Korean custom)!
5.30am - Woke up, put on 4 layers of clothes (cotton long john, Uniqlo heat tech turtle neck, Uniqlo flannel turtle neck, purple flannel hoodie) and my winter jacket.
6.15am - Left the dorm and met up with my friend to walk to Gwangan Bridge, which is just 15 mins away from my dorm!
6.35am - Met up with another friend and started to ascend the bridge. The Gwangan Bridge is only open for pedestrians 2 times a year - NY event and the marathon.
6.50am - Reached the midspan of the bridge and started to wait for the sunrise.
7.20am - "Why no sunrise yet??? Are the clouds/fog blocking the sun to come out?"
7.32am - Finally, the golden red ball of fire emerging from the horizon. The first sunrise of the year!
7.40am - Got interviewed by Busan 90.5FM radio station... hahaha
8.00am - Ate McDonalds Sausage McMuffin
8.30am - Back in my comfy dorm room... continue zzz...
Happy New Year 2011 everyone!
Mercy and I on the bridge. She is from Tanzania and we have been attending Korean language class together for two semesters now. Her Korean is better than mine, I think!
All three of us foreigners were interviewed by Busan 90.5FM... hahaha... just a short clip of us saying our NY wishes ^^
Also, my first time using HOT PACK - shake shake shake and put the hot pack inside my pocket to keep me warm... ^^
