A Merry Christmas Party in Seoul....
With snowy mornings and dropping temperatures, December brings the Christmas season to Korea!
And with Christmas come the Christmas parties!
So, last weekend, some Filipino and foreigner friends and their families got together at Archie and Joy's home in Seongbuk-dong to share the Christmas spirit before everyone (including me!) flies out of Korea for some warmer weather.
Everyone brought Filipino dishes like kare-kare, adobo, pansit and lumpiang prito to add to roast pork (the closest we had to lechon) and other dishes whose names escape me, but whose delicious tastes do not! Ha-ha-ha!
A few Christmas games, exchanging gifts, videoke and an ambitious attempt to sing the classic 'Twelve Days of Christmas' filled the whole night of Christmas partying.
It has been a year since last year's Christmas party. And this one was just as fun, although we miss a few friends who have since moved to other cities like Cebu, Hong Kong, Rome, Dubai, London, Karachi, Vienna, Washington D.C. and Sydney.
And to you and to all my friends in South Korea and everywhere else in the globe, I wish you a Merry Christmas, and a lot of fun, food and fireworks during the holidays!
