Happy Children’s Day

:

Well today is Children’s Day which means…no school! This week is like having 2 Mondays, but also having 2 Fridays. Not bad!


Lotus

I got free tickets for the auto-show thanks to eFM, and so a group of us (Matt, Shinwoo, Chad, Hyesung, HyoJoo, Brian and I) headed to BEXCO for the 2010 MotorShow. I clearly wasn’t thinking when I decided for us to go this day because it was SO busy. You could move around, but not without bumping into lots and lots of people.

The show itself was decent I guess, I’ve neve rbeen to a Car Show before so I didn’t know what to expect. Almost all of the cars were Korean made (Hyundai, Kia, Ssangyong, Daewoo, Chairman (never heard of it before) and Samsung.) Uncle John, they did not have Scion there. They also had Porshe and Lotus there as well.

The Crowds

In typical Korean fashion, each car had a girl draped over it an men stood in line to take pictures of the car (girl). It seemed like the more expensive the car, the prettier the girl and the fewer the clothes (big line near the Porshe booth). To me I’d say 85% of them looked malnourished.


SsangYong

Most of the cars were “blue” cars…or what we in the west would call “green” cars. They also had some new energy efficient buses on display.

After the show, we went out for Vietnamese food and then over to Chad’s place for more food, drinks and an amazing concert that was put on by friends of a friend. A Chinese/American and Korean just sat down and started jamming out with their traditional instruments (Danzo, Gayagum, PeePod (??), Violin and vocals).

A really great Children’s Day!
