Now onto the past weekend... We have been taking it easy of late, saving the pennies (December is so expensive, the boys birthday, Christmas, 2 holidays: starting December-February) and also I have been experiencing some strange stomach pains (food allergies? alcohol allergies? will get checked when I go home, in Korea they just tell me, don't eat spicy food, hmmm). So this weekend was quite relaxed.
We checked out the wonderful coffee shop near our house. Korea knows how to do coffee shops well, independent ones are usually pretty quirky and cool, although many of them blast the Kpop which I feel ruins the ambiance. However, this one is perfect, traditional styling and atmospheric tinkling's of music, I love it.

Also delicious here are the bugers, especially at Gorilla Burger in Daegu. However, this weekend we made do with King Kong burger in Pohang. Pretty tasty.

We spent the rest of the evening at the cinema watching Social Networking which was pretty good suprisingly. The cinema is the one place you completely forget your in Korea as its the same as home and your watching an English film (with Korean subtitles, which I manage to easily forget about), then the lights come on and suddenly your a minority!
We then went to have a look at some christmas lights about the town, they really are great. Many of the trees around the town are lit beautifully.
Followed by some hookah and some arcade fun.
