Have I mentioned that this week is our school's vacation week? Then after this week, we'll go back to about 1.5 weeks of actual class, half a week of review, and finals. Hard to believe our first semester is already coming to a close. It really flew.
To celebrate our week of freedom from school, we went on an impromptu weekend trip to Sokcho, on the eastern coast of Korea with the birth fam. I've got some pics and stories to tell when I get around to uploading everything.
But in the meantime... it's official! Emily and SangKwun's wedding will be in Seoul at the Sheraton Walker-Hill on October 3rd. Then, there will be a Chinese ceremony in Emily's hometown... which is *somewhere* in China.
It's amazing how much different wedding planning here is compared to back home. I went with them when they planned their wedding, and it took less than an hour. We went to a conference room, watched a slide show of the menu, picked out invitations, got a price list and TA-DA... the wedding was planned. There are a few other little details like a photographer and Emily's dresses to plan, but I have a feeling those decisions won't be obsessed over like at home. Also, in Korea (and China) the boyfriend (or his family?) pays for the entire wedding, so it looks like SangKwun's gonna have to work some long days to cover this event. :o)
Oh and the BEST.PART.EVER. about this wedding is that Birth Father said that both Mark and I will wear hanboks to be introduced to family and clients. Honestly, seeing Mark strut about in a hanbok will most definitely be the highlight of my year.
Oh and for those of you who aren't familiar, hanboks are traditional Korean clothes. That hanbok maker is going to fall over when Mark arrives to be measured! That'll be a video-worthy event, for sure.
