Deprived No More!

Well, it has been a long time since this little Newfie boy arrived in Korea, and you would think I would be done with missing all those little conveniences and comforts I had to trade in for this worldwind life of fame and adventure in Asia. After all, this is a modern, technologically -advanced country with a great range of consumer goods, restaurants, and cultural offerings - much much much much much more so than when I first came here.Yet there are still those little yearnings that refuse to go away, even as I have come to love and appreciate this country in a way all those sub-decade neophytes cannot understand. I still pray for the day when I will have just a few more simple comforts available here in my own neighborhood: dill pickles, long-handled brooms, a real clothes dryer in my place, pay-per-view porn (joke), oxygenated air (no joke), and a BATHTUB!
But wait! Today, I just to a step back into the warm womb of comfortable North American life without having to leave good 'old Daechi-dong. Yes, they now have portable bathtubs available on home shopping for only 71,000 won, delivered right to your door. Simply take off the plastic wrap and plop 'er right down in your water closet squeezed in between the toilet and the kimchi pots.

Take heart therefore, all those of you who like, as did Napoleon once, to plot your next battle ensconced in the liquidy warmth of a nice hot bath. No need to show your fat white butt to the ajumas and ajashis at the sauna any more. Bathtime is bere.

bored...messing around on facebook...came across your blog....now, craking up...thanks for the laugh...if you could detach your legs then it would be just the right size...all though, I do remember the time when I was trying to substitute the biggest kimchi making bowl for a bathtub...never quite worked out.

Good day, sun shines!
There have been times of troubles when I didn't know about opportunities of getting high yields on investments. I was a dump and downright pessimistic person.
I have never imagined that there weren't any need in big starting capital.
Nowadays, I'm happy and lucky , I begin take up real money.
It's all about how to choose a proper companion who uses your money in a right way - that is incorporate it in real deals, and shares the profit with me.

You may get interested, if there are such firms? I'm obliged to tell the truth, YES, there are. Please be informed of one of them:
