Kimchi Boy Military Update 1

Its been a week now. There is no news from him.

I've been texting with his mother but we have problems understanding each other. My Korean is really bad, and she cannot understand a word of English. Its amazing how we can still text each other. I'm still missing him, and still feeling the same sense of loneliness as the first day when he entered military. I wonder how he is doing.

Quick updates

As the end of semester approaches, I usually get busier hence the lack of updates!

1. Maxi, our "corgi" mix puppy is growing well. (we are still unsure of his true breed). He is now 6 or 7 months old, really playful and active! Luckily there is a garden in Kimchi boy's home for this happy dog to dig and run in.

2. Kimchi boy has finally been called to serve his military! He is 29 years old.. Can you believe the Korean system ?! So.. no contact for a month, but after the initially first month physical training, he gets to continue his service as a government worker (9-6pm job). Counting down to 15 Nov 2014!

3. Cannot wait to complete my undergraduate studies at NUS. Traveling 1.5 hours to get to NUS from Yio Chu Kang for the past 3.5 years is no joke!!! (3 hours a day just spent on traveling).
