Odd that they didn't actually change anything from when it was Pataya. The giant Pataya sign is still on top of the building and there is even a little sign on the pillar inside that still says "That Cuisine".

Went for a milkshake today near Noksapyeong station. The place has been there for a long time (relative to a lot of the other places in the area) but I've never gone in.

A Jebena is the traditional Ethiopian clay coffee pot. It is also the name of an Ethiopian coffee shop in Hyehwa, Seoul.
The entrance on the 5th floor.
Displays along the entryway.
The interior is all Ethiopian. It is a bit of a museum.
Traditional Ethiopian stringed instrument.
Solid wood chest. They keep some of the tools for the coffee in there.
You can order the usual coffee drinks or experience a traditional coffee ceremony with the full three rounds.
Very cool wooden table.
Very cool wooden stool.
Chairs? They use them for people to put their bags on at the tables, if needed.
Looking towards the entrance.
Roasting the coffee beans.
They ground the beans at the counter.
Add sugar and stir.
A perfect little cup of coffee.
It is definitely worth seeing if you haven't before.
Chatting with the owner.
Will definitely go again.
To get there go out exit 1, Hyehwa station. About 50 m or so it'll be on your right. It is on the 5th floor of the City Valley Building, above Bennigan's.

Early last week the sun was shining and the air was warm. Walking down the hill from work on my way to the subway train I rescued a pretty little butterfly from the road.
"Spring!" I thought. It was an odd little butterfly. I noticed it had a good grip on my finger. Then I noticed it was gripping with only four legs. I looked and sure enough that was all it had. Not even stubs or scars where the other two legs should have been. Odd. A mutant butterfly.
I walked a ways down with it clinging to my finger then put it into a small patch of plants off the road.

This is my example for Halloween treat bags that I will make with my first grade class. I figured since we will make pumpkin lanterns later it would be good to have them decorate their bags with something else, like a cute ghost. :)
It's very simple: a paper lunch bag, white and black construction paper, crayons, and glue.
I got the idea for the face from a craft I did with kindergarten students a couple of years ago.
The site that I originally got that craft from, I cannot find. I did find the same one here.

After work today I went with a friend to Cafe Bene near Sungshin University subway station to chat while she killed time before making an appointment.
