We are at a holiday house with my family right now! We are here for Christmas. Of course Christmas is in summer in Australia so it’s nice to have a beach Christmas. We’ll be here for about a week. I will trying to keep a normal posting schedule while here but the internet is quite patchy.
Here is Mr Gwon with some Kangaroos at the front of the holiday house.
This is NOT normal in Australia, we just happen to be in a small coastal town surrounded by bushland. The kangaroos like to eat people’s lawns in the evening. You don’t usually see scenes like this in Australia.
Just to answer some people’s questions on the social media:
They are wild kangaroos but somewhat used to people. You can’t really pat them because if you come too close they will hop away. But they are a less timid than other wild ones since they move through residential areas every evening. They don’t mind people if you stay a respectful distance.
They are NOT dangerous. Kangaroo attacks for no reason are very rare so there really isn’t anything to fear. Even though there was one in the news recently – it’s still really rare. Also most of the kangaroos here are females, younger ones or joeys. We only saw 1 bigger male today. Kangaroos aren’t going around kicking and fighting. That behaviour is by males and only at certain times.
Anyway we are enjoying the sun and the beach before moving to Korea next month!
When we moved back to Sydney last year we both just came with suitcases but now we have this huge pile of stuff we have accumulated. We have sent a few winter things to Korea but we’ll only be taking to Korea what we can take on the plane. We aren’t shipping anything there. I look at all our stuff and wonder how we managed to get it all…
I’m going to keep on schedule with the comics for the next few weeks but it may be difficult with moving back to my home town for a month and because it’s the holiday period.
Hey guys! For those that might not know, I have another comic over on DramaFever again.
This is a regular thing so look out for my comics over there once a week! They are special ones that won’t be shown here! You gotta go over there!
Just Mr Gwon! I was originally going to go but……. very expensive dental work popped up and our original plans don’t really fit into the budget now. However, Mr Gwon, who has backpacked around Asia and Australia is going to have a Melbourne backpacking trip.
He has never been to Melbourne before and isn’t even sure what he is going to do there, so it will probably be an adventure. He will be arriving on the 21st and leaving on the 25th (November).
If you’d like to see him, hang out with him, show him something, get in contact!
I’m not going… just him!
Hi everyone! It’s Sunday here, so no new comic, but we have a cool announcement to make!
Mr Gwon has his own site now where he can share with everyone all the random stuff he finds online (instead of spamming people on Facebook). It’s called What A Nice!
Of course because Mr Gwon is Korean there will be lots of funny Korean stuff, but there will also be international stuff.
It’s also a place for all our blog readers to hang out and have fun! You can comment lots, have conversations with other blog readers and all that. We’d like to build up the My Korean Husband community and the What a nice site is a fun site where you can hang out.
You can make suggestions to Mr Gwon too!.
We are back in Sydney safely. Really need to sleep though. Not just from travelling but because we were pretty busy for the whole 3 weeks we were away. I’ll upload a new comic or video tonight.
There are a lot of comments I need to reply to but I’ll do it later when I’m not so tired so they won’t just be gibberish like this jafboafohnafnafnafbabcabvjaka.
Okay sleep time!
We had a really great time at the meet up. Thank you to everyone who came. We expected only a few people but I think it ended up being about 20 people. Everyone was so nice and we had an awesome time. There are a few photos on Facebook mostly from the second place we went to. We started at the cafe, then moved on to a restaurant and then some of us went to a bar and then finally another restaurant. So much talking!
I haven’t done a comic yet for today but I’ll try to do one later. I’m typing this while still in the hotel bed- I’m exhausted but trying to wake up properly because we need to go out and have EBS film us some more.
We go to Seoul today!
We are going to a publishing company that has offered me a book deal. I’m still not 100% certain that I will sign the deal yet, but we’ll see how things go.
We also have the Seoul Meet up tomorrow!
We’ll hopefully have another video uploaded later today, so check back!
In other news, if you’d like us to be invited to KCON this year please tell the KCON organisers. KCON is a Kpop convention in California. I’m not sure if we fit the type of panelists they are looking for as we aren’t completely about Kpop- but we do some Kpop stuff. You can recommend us on their Facebook Page or Tweet them @KCONUSA with the #kconfeedback tag/.
Hey guys, we will be at A Twosome Place Cafe near Sinchon Station (신촌역) at 4pm on Saturday (4th May). Sinchon is near Hongdae.
EBS may not be able to film inside (because it’s a chain coffee shop), but we might film a little bit on our camcorder, but there probably won’t be like a camera in your face, so don’t worry.
We will stay there for about one hour and then at 5pm probably go somewhere else, so whoever is still around can come (then EBS will film more).
We will be updating social media- the Facebook, his Facebook and Twitter and let you know if anything changes.
We look forward to meeting people who read the blog!
Hey guys, we will be having a meet up in Seoul on 4th of May. It will probably be in the afternoon, 4 or 5pm. It’s just a chance to meet people, meet us and others that read the blog as well. At this point it’s likely to be at a Twosome Place near Sinchon station.
EBS will be filming us for a few days and will likely film a bit of the meet up. I just want to check firstly how many people are likely to come, and if people are okay being filmed. Really it’s us being filmed so I think you’d be more in the background.
If no one is going to show up because there will be a camera, I want to check first haha.
We are heading to the airport soon and will be in Korea tomorrow morning. We have a stopover, so not directly to Korea
We will fly into Busan and then catch a bus to Jinju. From there Mr Gwon’s aunt will drive us to his tiny home town. So next time you see our faces we will be in very rural Korea!
We are having a meet up in Sydney on the 14th of April!
It will be at 4pm at My Sweet Memory near Town Hall. (95 Bathurst Street).
Everyone welcome. We’ll get some drinks, maybe eat some delicious sweet food and have a chat!
If you have a question you can ask here or on Facebook or Twitter.
Hey guys, I’ve mentioned before that we will soon be branching out into YouTube videos and we will start filming some stuff soon. For one of our upcoming videos we will be answering your questions. So if you want to ask us something, leave your question in the comment section! Questions can be as serious or as ridiculous as you want.
As it’s Sunday today, no comic but you can ask questions or suggest post topics. Just leave a comment here or on any of the social media.
Also, if you are interested in doing a guest post, please let me know at firstname.lastname@example.org. If you are in a similar situation to my husband and I and would like to share your experiences please let me know.
I’m still visiting my parents and I’m still in summer mode. I can’t remember when I last brushed my hair. Seriously it looks like this:
Yup that’s me right now. Unfortunately my husband is in Sydney working That’s one of the reasons why I’m staying a while in my home town, because he doesn’t have much time off at the moment so we wouldn’t be able to be together as much if I was in Sydney anyway.
So he isn’t getting much of a summer holiday, BUT we are planning on going back to Vanuatu later in the year. We are hoping to film that as well. We are working towards starting videos by April. We want to do things properly so we are taking the time to organise properly. We don’t want to just upload crappy home videos, we want to show you some interesting things, for example: my husband experiencing Australian culture, me experiencing Korean culture, what it’s like for Koreans living in Australia, interviews with Koreans here, lots of things. So that’s the plan at the moment. Fingers crossed!
