I was somehow under the impression that the election is tomorrow.

We have another week of this sh*t?

I think minus tomorrow.  Apparently, there are no comedy programs on tv as it is a solemn day so I doubt they'd be allowed to blare out banging music.  Could be wrong though.

All is quiet so far, helicopter fly-by aside.

And the price is not outrageous... But the checkout line was last time I dropped in specifically to get it.

Itís hard to justify going there as the lines and sheer size of the place makes it unweildy, not to mention a piss-poor selection given its vastness (we couldnít even find saltine crackers :rolleyes:), but we were in need of bagels, Roman Meal bread, cream cheese, Tasterís Choice, and plain Yoplait. Without a Costco membership, itís all I got.

Almost right.  People were on the corners, but not as many as usual, and minus the banging music.

Same. I saw them out on the walking paths during my evening run, but nothing too aggressive (at compared to my aggressive cutting and juking between all the annoying walkers who dared not to get out of my way). Electioneering trucks were definitely revving their engines this morning, though.

Whoever is candidate #2 for my area has the most obnoxious campaign by far. At least the other groups advertising don't have music consuming the entire intersection area and people shouting at the top of their lungs

That's too bad. :p

As a NZer, who also grew up with Weet-bix, all I'll say is: Ewwwww gross D:
I don't know why people subjugate themselves to that soggy cardboard tasting cereal. :P
I also dislike vegemite and marmite :p

I'm surprised people have mentioned big crowds at E-Mart Traders.  Every time I have gone to the two near me (Ansan and Gunpo) I've actually been surprised at how quiet they were.  To the point I thought these places aren't going to last.  Maybe they're a mad house on weekends.  I go during the week, but Costco on a weeknight certainly has crowds.

The Ansan store is the one I walked out of.  Usually it isn't too bad. I often get lunch there.

I dunno. I ended up buying some and trying it for the first time. Tastes to me like corn flakes pounded into a dry phyllo dough.

I break them up and let them soak up the milk. More of a pablum consistency when they are ready.

I went to this place last year  in Jeju City called 화통삼. It was really close to my hotel at the time and had an awesome amount of side dishes and vegetables. It's a black pork place.

Ha. Just as we're preparing to head to America so I can take a nursing course in the fall, my wife applies on a lark for a good job with a major Korean bank's new fintech unit and, just now we learn, gets it.

When are you headed there? I am also in need of a few recommendations. I had a really good place some years ago, and it was about 60 for the 2 person course for the horse - about 80 after drinks and stuff. I think 2 people ran around 50 for the Jeju pork. If anyone knows of a place that does pork but also has some steamed horse or something on the menu, I would like to know. My wife doesn't want to eat horse again, but I do, and I wouldn't be able to finish the course mentioned above. I will see if I can find a name for you though HaLo. I will be heading there tomorrow afternoon, so have been looking around, too.

Last time we ate at a Jeju pork place called 나대감... You can find it on the map if you search 나대감 제주점.
I can't remember the name of the horse place.
