SUITING UP – AND COINCIDENTALLY APPEARING ON TV (?)

So the other day, I had to suit up to attend an Oil Hub Conference at Lotte Hotel here in Ulsan. It was an annual event if I’m not mistaken, aimed to build relationships and exchange information amongst industry players as the country pushes forward its plans to create a North East Asian oil hub.

As the event was co-sponsored by my university, and as our major is in the oil & gas industry, we were required to attend the event and participate.

I arrived early, so I got to take photos of the venue

After the event, I went to my part-time job. And after that, I met with my classmate Junyeong, and his acquaintances. We had a fun time drinking soju, having chicken. They even bought me makgeolli so that I can try that traditional Korean alcohol for the first time. It was surprisingly good!

Then we went to a noraebang! Hahaha.

I had sooo much fun that night. ๐Ÿ™‚ Alcohol and karaoke? And making new friends. Please. What more could I ask for?

P.S. The next day, I woke up around noon only to get some messages from my Korean friends (and students) that they saw me on TV! Hahaha!

The celebrity in me (lol)
