Going to Taiwan

I didn’t go anywhere during winter vacation, so now I’m going on two vacations! My Malaysia trip has come and gone, and tomorrow morning I’m headed off to Taiwan.

My Mandarin is really bad, but I’m going to try really hard!

KIIP Level 3

Registration opened at midnight on the 16th, and the KIIP website immediately slowed to a crawl. I saw that people were registering slightly before midnight, but I thought I’d wait until after, just to be sure. Occasionally, you see notes on classroom listings that threaten to kick out people who register too early. You’d think they’d build it into the system.

But anyway. I’ve registered! I’m going once a week for 8 hours, every Sunday, from September 04 to December 04. Three months! But it’s only once a week, which should be a cakewalk compared to last semester’s Sat/Sun, 8 hours a day classes.

Incheon Airport observations

Some funny things I’ve noticed at immigration clearance:

  1. Two screens playing only SM Entertainment music videos, one after the other.
  2. Another screen on the wall next to the immigration counters, mostly advertising … LG plasma screens.
