Giveaway, Seoul, Bella Naija, Food Friday

11 Feb

Wow.  It has been an awesome week.

As some of you may know, I won the Verastic Giveaway commemorating her 5-year anniversary.  I won with most comments and also won the first random generated comment.  I must have spent 20-30 minutes each day posting those comments all because I have a thing for one3snapshot’s designs.  If it had Gidan Nodza’s handbag eh, I would have paid a hacker to block other commenters and flooded Vera’s blog…he he he he….

Well, on other GOOD news… I won a cultural immersion grant to go to South Korea.  Oh yeah.  Soon I will be saying Ahn-nyung-haseyo  ( 안녕하세요) to people in Seoul.  I will be visiting an institution of learning as well as enrolling in a language school.  Can’t wait to taste real kimchi, kimbab and bulgogi.

I plan to graduate in May, go to Warrior Dash soon after and then take off for Seoul.  I have accumulated enough vacation time to add an extra week….maybe I will head to Bali for some R and R too… or go to Hong Kong or Beijing… I don’t know yet.

I am still writing my Transnational Entrepreneurship case project on Bella Naija.  I tried to get an academic interview but so far no go.  My professor said I could write the case around that and just cite my sources.  This semester is a semester for writing cases.  I have another Verizon vs. ATT case to write with some group members.  Oh well, just 10 weeks to go and am free!

And yes…for Food Friday, I had this delish Egusi and Farina for dinner on Wednesday.

    You really are going to Seoul? Oh my, I’m dreaming of when I can go to Asia. But India and China are first in the list.

    Did you not hear back from BN yet? I would have thought she’ll be OK for that.

    Congrats dear, I know about your passion for K-dramas, so it’s only fitting that you get to experience their culture first hand. Well done.

    I’m so glad you won!! Congratulations on your grant to go to Seoul. Tip for bellanaija, have you tried emailing ALL the members of her team? I think they have an about page or a post with all their contact info.
    They’re pretty good at responding. And try contacting her via twitter.
    BTW: I have a Gidan Nodza bag….AMAZING! I love that bag to pieces! If you know anyone going to naija, you should totally have them get you one, that’s what I did. Doesn’t your sis come to visit you? Ask her to bring you one when next she comes. It’s worth it.

    • lucidlilith February 15, 2011 at 10:44 am #

      My sister is coming in a week so Yes, i will let her know to get me a bag. Also – I did e-mail BN’s entire team but got no response.
