A weekend of Going Away's

This weekend was all about going away parties.  Friday night, Robert and I celebrated his leaving for England with my loves from Cheongju and boy o boy.  It was a great time.  Before I knew it, I was already drunk bestowing smooches all over my love.  The shots were flowing and everyone was happy.  It was a great night and it ended happily (and luckily without me puking lol).  The night was spent at MJ's bar!

Saturday we did what we normally do.... nothing and movies... until we went out for dinner and met up with the Dawn crew for her going away party.  It was another night of interesting occurrences.  We had dinner at Frypan and it was glorious... chicken and Salad... nothing better than that!  Then we went to PJ where we had a few drinks and people watched for most of the evening.  Then came home to a looooong convo with the parentals lol!  

Instead of being my normal shade of sad at everyone's leaving, I was extremely happy.  I'm happy Rob gets to go home and finally see his family, I'm happy Dawn is going to live her dream and dive all over the Philippines,  and most of all, I'm just happy.  So glad everyone is moving on to bigger and better things.  And I am counting down the days until my own departure.

All in all...great weekend.  But I ate wayyyyyy to much so I am going to have to murder myself this weekend.  

Right after I finished these chips....

already drunk

Busan Shark Diving

 This weekend my honey and I got the chance to go diving with sharks in Busan.  We met in Daejeon so that we could ride the KTX train together and of course, as with everything that is Shaina and Robert, there was a little drama with seats and cars, blah blah blah.  Eventually we got squared away, calmed down, and arrived in Busan, right at the aquarium on the beach.  We checked into our hotel and finally relaxed in the most comfortable non sexy pajamas on the planet!!!

The next morning, we got up early and went over to get some breakfast before we took a nice little walk on the beach.  Too bad it wasnt warmer. :(  We got in, met up with our instructor and sat through a briefing about the dos and donts of the dive and then, as we were in the second group, we walked around the aquarium to have some fun before it was our turn. 

After some lunch and aquarium gazing we went in to put on our wet suits and get ready to go.  We learned all the things we should be able to do and then we were ready to go.  It was such a wonderful experience and it was even better to do it together.  One thing we can check off of our 2011 check list (which I think was the best idea ever and we might have one every year).  Anyway... here is the video, and if you want to scuba go here and have fun.  Then go get certified like we plan on doing because you will be hooked like we are!!
