Maedeup Monday!


This is a bookmark that I made while living in South Korea. Su-Mi, my maedeup teacher had me make a bunch of maehwa (plum blossom) maedeups. I then strung them on a 1mm cord using wae dorae maedeup to keep them from all bunching up. The funny thing she had me do beforemaking the maehwa maedeups was remove the white filler inside the cording. It made the maehwa a lot smaller and less bulky. I also added some silver garakji maedeups. The chilbo piece is one I had purchased from my chilbo teacher.
Rocketman called yesterday from Korea and said he went with Hannah (my Korean girlfriend) to get glasses in Seoul. He needed some to get him through this time during which his eyes are still healing and adjusting. The Korean optometrist was very thorough but it was a much different experience than here in the USA. Instead of looking into a dilator, the optometrist attached one to his head.
After he made the adjustments he wanted Rocketman to walk around the Home Plus (like a Super Target) to see if it was alright. Rocketman had some dizziness which was expected. He refused to do that and just walked around the office a little. The glasses came to 170,000 won which is about 150 US dollars. Quite a savings. I can't wait to see what he picked out.
