I-90 West-end people driving on I-10 West-end.. Can’t believe last time I was around here was like 21 years & 3 months ago!!! –

Funny story but I do believe I remember the exact days I was here; because I was doing overbooking stand-by at LA (had to call airline’s reservation desk everyday mornings and nights) to get the seat confirmation.. [and I have been told that I was yelled a lot from office… ๐Ÿ™‚ but it was travel agency’s fault – and not mine, and I even saved the company’s money by staying at my friend’s place…]

Crazy amount of workload in recent days are breaking my personal records of work hours I set during the old days of consulting in Seoul. Those days, Beer at office desk, was a great energy boosting companion or at least a small escape from the treadmill.

As the record high working hours continues day by day, naturally, that habitual ‘escape’ has also come back. ๐Ÿ™‚ Beer is perfect for my Friday midnight oil burning – plus, a great energy/hope booster that I can enjoy the sweetest Saturday morning sleep & be unplugged for work on Saturday at least… ๐Ÿ™‚

The first stop of this visit to Korea: Myung Dong in Downtown. Just simply chose this location to meet up with old friends for lunch and also all various banks I need to visit have their corp HQs or branches next to each other. ๐Ÿ™‚

Old cinema near the bus stop have disappeared, the old catholic church is still there and still crowded with all downtown workers & Chinese tourists. (and also got reminded I have spent maybe more than a year of work across different clients at this street during my old consulting days in Seoul)
