What's the beef ?

I haven't posted for a while due to the fact that I've actually been busy for once in my sad life. I've been meaning to say something about American beef , but kind of missed the whole boat with that. Suffice to say that's Korea is having one of it's little social burps and it'll all soon pass. So instead of giving my opinions on the inherent xenophobia, racism and anti americanism so blatantly displayed by the recent mind fart the Koreans are having , I'm going to talk about "Korean bbq".

Personally I can't wait for it to pass so that one could actually get some decent and cheap meat around here. Where I come from(the glorious country of South Africa) we stuff ourselves full of the flesh of innocent animals frequently as a cultural ritual known as the braai. Koreans pride themselves on the whole bulgogi/galbi/sam gup sal barbecue thing...but a braai in comparisson makes the whole country look like a nation of vegitarians.

For an introduction to the braai and just about everything you need to know about South African culture and life, you could be worse off that watching this video.



or this..



compared to this...




And that's all I have to say about that without swearing.

Whats up big guy. Stopped with the postings. Anyways, just to move you off. I have changed my site to a dotcom.
www.eslteachertime.com

Check it out. Leave a couple comments and enjoy. Keep on blogging. I know it seems like an uphill battle but soon enough you will find some English teachers that hate you too.
