Transit in Taiwan

I am sitting in departure lounge of gate B4 waiting for the connecting flight from Taiwan to Bangkok, this become crappy flight, I thought I don’t have to get off the plane? Note to self, don’t ever take small connecting flight, such a waste of time. Even though there is a free wifi and my phone can roam here.

Inchoen airport

Currently sitting in the free internet lounge in Incheon airport. Surprisingly this is quite empty, not bad none the less. Almost the same as Singapore airport. Also talking to Hui on Skype via my mobile phone. I think I need to get a new phone that support skype better, like Iphone or something. Time to boarding now.

Last day working

Went to lunch with JK and Eungkyung, they took me to a small restaurant but they serve many things, start with sushi, assorted Kimchi, korean rice cake with chilli sauce, fried egg fried rice, and intestine stuffed with noodle in another chilly sauce, fried squid, potatoes. The lunch only cost w20500, amazing.
After the project wrap up, we all went with Shankar to a nice italian restaurant called Ian’s, Shankar thought the name was Number Nine, so we walk 10 minutes to this number nine, and found that there was a wedding reception held there, and then we walked back to office and take chances to find Ians’, and in the end we found it. The food was very fancy, all the entree served in small portion with nice decoration, we start with some italian bread and black squid bread, then an olive, cracker, and a tiny piece of crab meat served in tiny egg shell, then some carrots, tofu, asparagus served in a very fancy cut, followed by assorted fruits and yogurt, grapes and the like, then the main is spaghetti pasta with cheese and seafood, very nice indeed.
