We had decided that this first day dealing with jet lag would be a good day to relax and get familiar with our surroundings, so the very first thing we did was to take a little walk over in the direction of Homeplus. We were wandering around minding our own business, oohing and aahing over Koreaness and Fish heads when we couldn't help but notice a gaggle of older Korean women all but fighting over the contents of a large box.
Of course we were going to head over there and see if we could get our hands on some of that too, or at least figure out what was causing all the commotion!
Upon our arrival we discovered... watermelon; gigantic watermelon the size of... the size of, well, a gigantic watermelon, and on sale for W 5,ooo! We forged into the gaggle, and snagged our self a prize and the watermelon party was born!
That night Ricki and I lugged the beast downstairs to Fish'n'Grill where the Watermelon/ Tara's Birthday party was going down.
...and truly a beast it was. This is a mere 1/8 of the original size!
We chopped it up, posed for pictures and served it up to my wonderful fellow co workers at SLP.
Before I knew it, my family were virtually local celebrities! Clever of you parents, very clever.
If I'm not careful, soon my friends are going to like my parents better than they like me!
HAPPY BIRTHDAY TARA!!!
Hope you had a wonderful birthday, and that your trip to Thailand is awesome!
