While subtitling this we talked about what actually happened to the guy in the car accident. We searched online and couldn’t find out if he ever came out of the coma, but we did find a news article about the “missing Korean tourists”. One of those being my husband! He didn’t know until today that people had searched for him for 7 hours! Even though it was back in 2006, big thank you to those who searched and were concerned.
Here is a short video about when Han and Sophie (and baby Alice) visited us and we went to some of my home town’s tourist attractions. We have been staying with my parents for a few weeks before we move to Korea.
Hopefully you have seen this comic and know what my husband was trying to do and why he didn’t bring a towel. This time my brother and I were swimming and I didn’t think my husband was getting in the pool, so I didn’t make sure he had a towel. He joined us later and was still planning on using my towel! Luckily my brother knew what he was trying to do!
We move to Korea soon! But before we go, we are having one last meet up in Sydney. It will be on Monday 13th of January at Hyde park at 5pm. We will meet somewhere near the war memorial. You can bring food and picnic blankets and we’ll have some sort of picnic on the grass.
The other My Korean Husband blog couple, Han and Sophie will be there too. Hope to see some of you there!
The poor tree! It is dying because of a sewage problem and its roots are near some pipes… lets just say it was over fertilized.
Some of my brother’s friends who read this blog have asked him why he wasn’t in any comics (he has only appeared briefly before) so here you are! Hello my brother’s friends. He cut down a tree…

Whenever I tell other Australians this they always say, “Yes that is bad etiquette!”
It’s not fun getting out of the water, being cold, and then finding your towel is wet because it’s been used by someone else. Even if it was your husband… or maybe, especially if it was your husband! These days I usually go back and get his towel so he doesn’t use mine. He has a nice big beach towel to use – we all do – but apparently carrying it to the pool or beach is just too much effort!
Here is a bit of footage from our summer Christmas holiday. We’ve mentioned before that my husband is not a confident swimmer and a bit scared of the water. Korea doesn’t have a swimming culture like Australia does. However, it was great to see my husband gain confidence in the water while we were there.
First he baits me, then he mimics me, then he predicts exactly what I’m going to say. So nice!
When we were on the coast the cicadas were so loud. Deafening in some places.
Do you have cicadas in your country? Have you been to another country and realised they sound different there? Cicadas in Australia make a different sound to the ones in Korea.
Also, HAPPY NEW YEAR!
I’m sorry that I missed a few days of comics but I’m back on schedule now. Also we have filmed a lot recently so many videos coming soon!
I’m really happy that he is a lot more confident in the water now. Not as happy about having my ankles bitten while swimming though…. and he did it more than once!
We are back in my home town now as our beach holiday is over.
Kangaroo poo is a lot nicer than dog poo! My husband wasn’t as disgusted by it.
The kangaroos come in the evening and eat everyone’s lawns. We’ll try to film them while here so we can show you later. They are wild but very used to people.
