[Life Update] New Job + Osaka Trip

Hello all!
I am so sorry! I fail so much at keeping this blog updated! I have so many posts in the "draft" section of the blog, you have no idea. It's just a matter of having the time/energy to sit down and really write that eludes me.

I have a bunch of great restaurants I just checked out, too. Such a pity!

I started a new job in August and then suddenly got bombarded with freelance translation projects from my previous company, combined with all my editing projects, and lectures, it was just a crazy last three weeks.

As you might know, it's currently chuseok (추석), which is kind of like Korean thanksgiving, I guess. It also corresponds with the harvest festival in the Chinese calendar.

This year, it luckily falls on a Wednesday, so we have a super extended weekend. Wednesday through Sunday off.

I decided last minute to go to Osaka for the weekend. This is about time for me to update my Japan knowledge...I haven't been back since I moved away in January 2014~!

My current plan is to go to Kobe right away tomorrow morning and then go to Osaka in the evening to meet up with my Japanese friend. Then we will go around in Osaka one day and then Kyoto one day and then I'll be back in Korea by Sunday afternoon.

I'll be flying Eastar Jet again, so I'll give some info about that flight later :)

I recently went to Jeju on Eastar Jet for work. The flight was fine, no complaints. The flight was about 39,000 one-way. My coworkers complained because we didn't get meal service, but the flight is less than 1.5 hours, so I can't see how it would be physically possible for them to give us anything other than water/beverage service.

I have flown it before and no other complaints yet, keep you updated later!
