Before we were married, my wife used to say "partner"; people assumed that I was female as well.

:)

It might just be your soft features.

I have a Xiaomi Air 2 in the mail right now, as we speak, currently.

It's a present to myself.

They're great. If you live in a one room, your air will get super pure. If it's like a three room or something you might need a little more umph. Congratulations, though!

RE: air purifiers

https://thewirecutter.com/reviews/best-air-purifier/

I tried to buy this Coway (AP-1512HH Mighty) as it got good reviews on nearly every website I could find. I figured it's a Korean brand so it would probably be only slightly more expensive to buy here than anywhere else. But checking danawa.com, the cheapest I could find it for was 280k WON, the average being around 300k, despite selling on Amazon for around $200. I checked the Coway website and it's not even listed as a product there, nor do they have a purchasing page. It turns out that despite being Korean, it's an older model that they don't sell here anymore, so it must be shipped from abroad. I paid the 15k in country shipping fee and expected, based on the chart provided on the purchasing page from Auction that I would have to fork out another ~60K for international shipping, but the company texted me and said it would be another 105k, despite such a price not being listed anywhere on the purchasing page. I'm now trying to take it through Auction mediation, but they do not have a single English-speaking employee apparently and they are being less than helpful. Meanwhile, the vendor I bought it through has stopped returning my calls. :rolleyes:

Serious question. Why do homosexuals always say "significant other" or "partner" instead of boyfriend/girlfriend? The vast majority of (western) people do not care and are not going to be shocked.

Why is the ground beef here so grisly?  It has hunks of nastiness in it and it stinks when fried.
i buy this one. it's good

Wow. I just did the math on this.... it would cost roughly 31,000 won for one pound of ground beef.  Ouch.  No wonder I never buy ground beef here.   :cry: :cry: :cry:

I bought this one ( and a second for my inlaws for when my daughter is there).  It is designed for microdust.  What is more, it has a charcoal filter for smells, and both are washable, so you don't need to replace the filters and spend a small fortune once or twice a year.  It is the upgrade to the 5500-2 model, and that was recommended online in a few reviews as the best purifier for samll areas.  No app witg it, but the "plasmawave" means that the technology it uses emits no ozone or other harmfull stuff.

I like the idea of washing the filters vs buying new ones:

I think your maths may be off, 500g for 6900 + postage

A pound is 454g making this about 6300 + postage a pound, this is possibly the cheapest beef I've seen in Korea (unless my maths is off)

Just a referral to people who are interested, there's an FB group called "Clean Air Ideas In Korea" with many members who are on top of this sort of thing and are incredibly knowledgeable about what's currently available. You can take a look in there and ask more detailed questions. They're really helpful and are very good about answering questions in general.

Yeah. This is actually a pretty great deal.
It's also way better quality than my local butcher. I just buy a few packs at once and keep them in the freezer. If anyone has any links to other cheaper minced beef deals, feel free to post them...

This guy doesn't mince around.  Straight to the beef.  Lean as a butcher's dog.

I find out this morning that I'll have Open Class this Friday in my Afterschool Class, and there will be parents there.
We're off tomorrow, and I'm at my travel school Thursday.

I have a plan, but I wish I'd get more notice.  I guess I should be thankful I got told before Friday.  :rolleyes:

That's what I get for a quick glance instead of paying close attention. I just saw 100g next to the price.... I didn't see they list the price per 100g. Wow. So this is a great deal! I'll definitely be taking advantage of this! Thanks!!!! :-D

I have money on my gmarket account already, and don't have a coupang account set up. So it'll be easier for me this way :)
