M y journey began in a small place called Haenam, tucked quietly beneath the mountains in the deep south of Korea: Jeollanamdo, the backdrop for my awakening. I arrived in the heat of summer, to cracked uneven pavements, run-down apartments, and the pungent odour of open drains and festering refuse.<br><br> My baptism had begun! I was about to embark on the journey of my life! Boseong Green Tea Plantation Boseong, a two-hour drive from Haenam, is simply stunning.<br><br> Squirrels and native birds dart around in the trees and green tea blankets the fields as far as the eye can see. Our Korean friends showed us the beauty of Korea. We strolled up the green hills, taking in the 8spring breeze 9 and the 8green tea-laden hills 9, stopping only to catch the stillness and peace of nature.<br><br> After walking to the top, we made our way back, chuckling at a foreigner hugging a tree, singing a lullaby and looking like she was thinking of home. She laughed, and we laughed too! Before long we were all seated at a green tea restaurant.<br><br> We enjoyed complimentary green tea, served on tree trunks carved into tables. What a view! The mountains and the ocean retreating into the mist and the light refreshing taste of green tea and good company.<br><br> Everland 3 Amusement Park After some incredible cultural experiences in the deep south, we were ready for the thrill of a big city , so we made our way to Seoul, Everland 3 an amusement park with a difference. Sure, it had the usual attractions, hanging coasters, log flumes and fun rides for young and old, but what makes it stand out is the zoo and safari-style adventures. There were white tigers, pythons, polar bears and monkeys and live animal shows as well.<br><br> This allows the discerning traveller the opportunity to bypass the madness and mayhem of endless queues and relentless rides for a quiet sojourn with nature, just man and beast. Yangsan Valley 3 Ski Trip A short, sharp, shock! It 9s always amused me that in the course of a foreign journey one will encounter many new things, and this would be no exception.<br><br> My son sat comfortably next to me on the ski-lift, completely unaware we had just by-passed the beginner 9s slope, were approaching treacherous territory and on our maiden voyage would screech wildly down the steep winding inclines of South Korea - screaming euphorically. We did it! People But is a journey to a foreign country only about rollercoasters, drinking green tea and skiing the snow slopes?<br><br> If we can learn anything at all about journeys, we learn that without the people 3 our journey is meaningless. The real treasures of travelling can be found in the simplicity of everyday life : the warm aroma of sweet potatoes baked in old steel drums; old ladies selling live fish, fresh fruit and vegetables on the sidewalks; streetstall owners serving hot cinnamon pancakes to combat the winter-chill; an old- man repairing shoes in a makeshift shoe-stall; people gathering cardboard trundling along with their makeshift trolley 9s; an old man rolling down the hill on an old black bike, and an old woman doubled-over rifling through clothes stacked near a run-down apartment; and yet, most of them smile, a wry toothless grin - this is the magic of Haenam 3 this is the marvel of travelling abroad in diverse Korea. by Allen O'Halloran Meet the People Kristy's Evening Korean Class Brenda Rodgers " A1 My name is Brenda Rodgers and I am from the east coast of Canada.<br><br> My husband works for Atomic Energy of Canada Limited. " A2 Participating in the language class has taught me that Korean is not as difficult to learn as I originally feared. I recognize all the vowels and consonants and I know the sounds they make.<br><br> I can read the words but I don't always know what they mean. Each week I am adding more words to my Korean vocabulary. " A3 The most difficult thing about learning Korean is speaking it.<br><br> I am very slow when I say the words and I feel like a young child just learning to speak. " A4 Our teacher, Kristy, is very good at what she does. Her English is excellent and I can easily understand her explanations.<br><br> She challenges us to do better and encourages us to practice, practice, and practice. I respect that she is sacrificing time from her family to help us and that inspires me not to give up. " A5 Even though our classes finish at the end of June, I definitely want to continue learning.<br><br> I have met some very nice Koreans and I would love to be able to have a little conversation in Korean with them. " A6 Brenda loves Korea. Harilal Thankappan " A1 My name is Harilal Thankappan and I am from Singapore.<br><br> I am working in HHI Shipbuilding Division. " A2 The important change is that I am able to read Korean words now. Also be able to express what is required in Korean restaurants/traditional markets.<br><br> I have learned basically the rules related to Korean writing and reading. Now I am able to express commonly used Korean words & important messages. " A3 Regular practice is the important thing in learning Korean language.<br><br> That is also the most difficult thing due to time factor/ other commitments etc. " A4 Classmates are very nice and everybody took the class very seriously. Everybody is very punctual, no late comers.<br><br> From answering the teacher 9s instant questions, we can easily notice that everybody spend time to practice at home. The teacher is very good. She put all her effort to make us understand what we suppose to know about Korean language, history & culture.<br><br> We appreciate her not only for teaching the Korean language but also for sharing the history, geography and current affairs of Korea. " A5 Yes. Sure.<br><br> Bama Dasgupta " A1 My name is Bama Dasgupta, Indian and I am working at HMD as a site manager for AMC 8 F LiK evening Korean Class was held every Wednesday night between March 18 th and June 24 th at Seobu HFC Clubhouse. Almost all of the participants had no Korean learning experience but they were all very energetic in learning a new language even though they have to come to the class after work and review it by themselves during the week. About 20 people participated and more than half remained until the end of the class building up language skills through which they can make basic sentences by themselves.<br><br> The class was meaningful to me as well since it was my first time teaching adult students. I 9d like to deliver my sincere thanks to all the participants who have shown their passion in learning Korean and to say, cSlow and steady wins the race, especially in learning a foreign language. d FLiK would like to introduce our class to readers. Here are some quetions & repsonses from our classmates.<br><br> Q1. Please introduce yourself briefly. (Name, Nationality, Company, Etc.) Q2.<br><br> Please tell us about your change after participating in the class and also tell us what you learned the most through the class. Q3. What was the most difficult thing about learning Korean?<br><br> Q4. Please write any comments about the class and the teacher. Q5.<br><br> Would you like to continue learning Korean after finishing this class? Q6. Please make any sentence in Korean.<br><br> by Kristy Choi / SEAARLAND a German/Italian company. I shall soon be shifting to HHI for a new project. " A2 As I have been coming to Korea over many years I can speak Korean a little but mostly without proper grammar and definitely not with proper tense.<br><br> But I never learned to read or write Korean until now. This class helped me to read Korean though not very fast but not so much in writing due to my lack of practice. " A3 Difficult parts were and still are the vowels (combined type) and their pronunciation followed by the markers for subject and object.<br><br> " A4 The duration of the course was very short as a result of which the lessons were little hurried. People with no previous knowledge of Hangeul will have tough time to pick it up during this short time. I would have to join again for the next session, if any, to brush up on the lessons taught.<br><br> " A5 Yes. Definitely " A6 Thanks to FLiK for Korean Class. \mÐ t?ðÐ t \xcÐ?<br><br> 0¬iÈä. Sandhu B.S. " A1 Sandhu Balvinder Singh, Indian and working in Offshore Engineering Division of HHI.<br><br> " A2 After attending the class, I can little bit understand and few words speak in the market, when I go for shopping. " A3 Many words resemble in speech/ pronunciation but with different meaning. " A4 Class teacher is very good and caring of every student.<br><br> But class should be twice a week. " A5 Yes, I am interested in further advance study. " A6 Juni is eating bread.<br><br> Mathew Varghese " A1 My name is Mathew Varghese and I am from India, Delphis. I am working as an owner supervisor. " A2 After attending the classes, I feel confident that with more effort, I can achieve a preliminary working level knowledge of Korean.<br><br> " A3 Pronunciation and vocabulary. " A4 The lessons are well structured. The teacher is dedicated and has good support with students.<br><br> " A5 Yes. " A6 The teacher is reading a newspaper. Caro Sandrine " A1 My name is Sandrine and I am French.<br><br> As a French teacher for foreigners, I am always interested in learning other languages and learning in order to understand the culture of the country. " A2 I can speak with taxi driviers for example or I can go shopping at the flea market. " A3 Pronunciation.<br><br> Because when I try to speak Korean, nobody understands me. " A4 Kristy is a good teacher. We learnt useful vocabulary and we have fun together.<br><br> Thank you to Kristy who is teaching us during her free time. " A5 Yes. I do.<br><br> Of course. " A6 I am Sandrine. Violet Wu Jacobsen " A1 My name is Violet Wu Jacobsen.<br><br> I am from Taiwan. " A2 When I meet the Korean people or take a taxi, I can speak some Korean with them. Now I can make some sentences, not only words.<br><br> " A3 Grammar is the most difficult part for me " A4 I really think Kristy is a very, very good teacher. I have learnt a lot from her. Of course the class is wonderful too.<br><br> " A5 Yes. I do. I hope Kristy can still be our Korean teacher.<br><br> " A6 I am Taiwanese. Ramachandran S " A1 My name is Ramachandran S and I am an Indian. I work for Anglo-Eastern Technical Services Hong Kong and the project I am working on is six 2550 TEU Container Ships for Delphis, Belgium.<br><br> " A2 Before the class, the Korean language was just like pictures to me, with no special meaning. After participating in class, I am able to somewhat read it and make myself understood. Now I feel good while going out, as I am confident to read Korean and communicate in a small way.<br><br> " A3 The difficult part of the Korean language is: (a) Use of correct vowels in words, as many vowels have the same intonation. (b) Pronunciation when there are double consonants. " A4 The class was conducted in a very systematic way, right from the basics, with lots of day-to-day examples.<br><br> Everyone had hesitation to talk Korean, but the teacher ensured that each and everyone spoke in the class. This also helped us correct our pronunciation. Altogether, it was a pleasant experience.<br><br> " A5 Yes, I would like to continue the study. " A6 Where is the dog? 9 10 À Having fun on a ride I had so much fun.<br><br> The rides were fantastic. I really liked the Turbo Twister.

Anchae literally means 8a part of hanok 9 (a traditional Korean house) where upper class ladies during the Joseon Dynasty would spend their time.<br><br> Anchae is next to the fitness center in Bangeojin NFA (B1). It has a video player, TV, a tea table, and a playing area for children. All NFA residents can use Anchae any time with reservation at the Information Office on the first floor.<br><br> We sincerely hope Anchae will serve as a place to encourage communication and interchange among residents and all foreign supervisors and their family. B efore I started my career in the Housing Administration Department, I had been working at the Human Resources Development Institute for eight years for 8Lifelong Education for Employees Families. 9 HHI provides a variety of educational programs for employees 9 family members. From the premise that a happy family is a prerequisite for improved work performance of HHI 9s employees, HHI provides lifelong education for family members to make houses happier places to live.<br><br> Throughout my work there, I have met more than 3000 life partners of my colleagues. Every time I met them, I couldn 9t stop thinking that to make happy family really depends on how housewives are doing. Also I learned in person that to make that happy family, each wife is doing everything she could do.<br><br> Harvard University Professor, Tal Ben-Shahar opened a 'Happiness Lecture.' not as a regular class, just as 'Positive Mindset Seminar.' The class started in 2002. In the first year, just eight students enrolled and two of them dropped out. But, the next year the enrolment rose to 380 and 855 the year after that, making the class one of the most popular classes at Harvard.<br><br> It was unusual that many Harvard students who are regarded as the world 9s smartest and seem to have everything they need such as intelligence, high educational level and a high-paying job after graduation, rushed to take the 8Happiness Lecture 9. Following the professor 9s Happiness Lecture, he published a book named cHappier d in 2007 and it was translated into Korean too. In the preface of the book, he quoted Hermann Hesse as saying, cWe are all born to be happy d Sure, that is true.<br><br> We are born to live a happy life. I savour this sentence from a different point of view. All international supervisors living in Hyundai Foreigners 9 Compound came to Ulsan to live a happy life with their family.<br><br> Then, how can the Housing Administraion Department make the foreigners 9 compounds happier places for them to live? My eight-year-experience as a family educational manager in the Human Resource Department taught me that wives are the main pillar of home, so it is very important to have an environment where they can live happily and comfortably. That is the undeniable truth in all ages and countries.<br><br> There are many family members who came to Ulsan with their spouse. We focus on the family members and relatives who have come along far away from their home countries. Can the foreigners 9 compounds be nicer places for them to live?<br><br> Then, what can we do to make the compounds more Enjoyable, Convenient, Homelike & O.K., a home away from home? The opening of Anchae started from this idea. We thought that it would be good to provide a space for housewives so that they can chat, drink tea, listen to music and play with their children after their husbands go for work.<br><br> This place might be the thing foreign housewives need the most during their stay in a foreign country. What makes me so sure about the importance of Voices of Housing Department by Cho Jae-kwon Anchae, a New and Comfortable Space for Bangeojin NFA Residents Notifications 01. The Administration O33ice o3 Bangeojin NFA is relocated to the entrance o3 the Multi-purpose Room in the NFA Clubhouse.<br><br> 02.

Every time I meditate within these temples, the solace and tranquility seeps deep within me filling every cell of my mortal being.<br><br> This has been an unforgettable experience. In the many independent and brave tours that we undertook in Ulsan and invariably got into a mess, we always found a very kind Ulsanian going out of his way to extend a helping hand. With the limited interaction I have had, I have found Koreans very lovable and peaceful people who have great respect for foreigners and elders.<br><br> I would also like to mention the very good work undertaken by the FLiK team. They are doing a great job and perhaps the only one of their kind anywhere in the world! They conducted tours to all the important sights of Ulsan and provided a good guide and inspiration to further explore the region on our own.<br><br> I should also compliment the FLiK team for being so youthful, dynamic, energetic, friendly and approachable at any hour and ever willing to lend a helping hand. After overcoming some initial teething troubles, my daughter thoroughly enjoyed her stay making some great friends at the HFS. Within the constraints, I think the school is doing a great job, promoting a very family-like atmosphere where the children feel very safe and secure.<br><br> The curricular and extra-curricular activities are reasonably good for the child 9s overall development. I would like to thank the school management and the teachers for their support and encouragement all through. My wife and I wish to express our sincere thanks to all the people we have known and interacted with here in Ulsan for making our stay pleasurable and memorable.<br><br> God bless Ulsan and the people of Korea! by Mr. R.<br><br> Rangarajan W hen we closed down the office and all my colleagues left last week, I had this sudden 8realisation 9 that my days in Ulsan were limited. I had this sinking feeling as though I was falling down a deep ravine, I could not control. It took me almost a couple of days to extricate myself out of that abysmal pit, but I still have a 8heavy 9 heart!!<br><br> We came to Ulsan last September. I was part of the Umm Shaif ADMA project commissioning team. It was a very tough decision for us to relocate from Abu Dhabi to Ulsan as my wife Usha had an enviable job and my daughter Sunaina was enjoying her school.<br><br> Also being humans there is always this natural resistance to change especially when everything around you is going so good. We did not have great expectations from this place although we thought we could sail through this year with the help of some good friends and HFS. When I sit back and reminisce the days I have spent here, I feel so good and lucky to have had the opportunity to be here.<br><br> I wish to relate and share some of my experiences and observations. To start with, we found a nice apartment with a good neighbourhood and close to the school/Hyundai foreign compound. Ever since we came here we have attended innumerable gatherings and parties with our friends in the foreigners 9 compound.<br><br> Notable ones have been the Diwali festival, many birthday parties and the group picnics. The residents of the foreigners 9 colony who come from different parts of the world live like one big family and rejoice all occasions together, exchanging, enjoying and accepting the uniqueness of each culture, lifestyle, food and tradition. Most residents have a short tenure of around a couple of years and new faces emerge every now and then.<br><br> Despite the frequent change in composition of the people, the bonhomie, camaraderie, vibrancy and the spirit of oneness is retained. It has been a great experience to be part of such a wonderful family!!! We soon discovered how well the Indian community has adapted themselves to a place with meagre resources in terms of availability of Indian food or TV channels.<br><br> It was amazing to see that most Indian women in the colony were adept at their culinary skills. They had discovered many useful web sites providing info on great Indian recipes which gave step by step instruction on methods of cooking. Again technology was put to use to view channels/movies which were otherwise inaccessible.<br><br> This was my first experience working with HHI or Koreans. I found them very polite, focused and hard working. They perfectly follow the line of command and once the job scope is clear, no force can stop their fierce speed of work.<br><br> They constructed three platforms for us in a very short while and proved their mettle. Although we did have some dissatisfaction in the engineering phase, I am still leaving this place with many personal lessons learnt (mostly good!). Ulsan is a mystical place with peaceful coexistence of humans and the surrounding nature wherein they both seem to understand and appreciate each others needs.<br><br> This place is so abundantly bestowed with nature 9s beauty - innumerable mountains, changing seasons, great weather, rivers and pine forests, the oxygen content seems to exceed 21%, and the lungs feel so good. The Ulsanians are equally caring and disciplined enough to keep the city clean and beautiful! I have always enjoyed the Buddhist temples in this place.<br><br> They are 14 Zoom in Korea by Kavita Verma Haeundae Beach and Busan Aquarium Haeundae Beach to this place on the seaside board walk with lots of sightseeing points and a hanging bridge is itself a romantic experience. Along with all these great features the beach also houses the famous Busan Aquarium where a total of 35,000 animals belonging to about 250 species are displayed. The Busan Aquarium is bigger than the hugely popular COEX Aquarium in southern Seoul, yet its admission charge is cheaper.<br><br> The new aquarium, spread across two levels, has thousands of tropical freshwater fish. The main tank on Level Two houses sharks and rays and thousands of other fish in 3,000 litres of water. A seven meter tall concave tank with a window 22 millimetres thick can be viewed from both levels.<br><br> Among the 40-plus exhibits, notable attractions include the Asian small-clawed otter, jackass penguin, electric eels, and deep coral reefs. Of special interest are the 2 ½ meter long shark and giant sea turtles. Other facilities include a resting place, outdoor park, and parking lot on the ground floor.<br><br> A simulator, theme restaurants, resting room, and souvenir shop are located on the first underground level (B1), while the aquariums are located on levels B2 and B3. One of the strangest moments at the museum is the simulator ride - which from the advertisements seemed like a cJaws d show/ride - but is actually a really cool amusement park ride in which we felt like we were in a pinball machine! It is a really good 3D show/simulator that rocked and nearly knocked the wind out of us a few times, but it had nothing at all to do with the sea, fish or water in general.<br><br> Plan a trip to this place any time this coming summer and I am sure you will fall in love with the surprises and unexpected encounters in the aquarium and at the Haeundae Beach. S ummer 9s knocking at the door while I am writing this article. It 9s time is for plenty of water and leisurely spending days and beaches are certainly good choice.<br><br> Our neighbouring city Busan is famous for its sandy beaches, which include Haeundae Beach, Gwangalli Beach, Songjeong Beach and Dadaepo Beach. Let me take you to the one of the finest beaches in the world and just one hour away from us to the Haeundae beach. Once known only for its hot springs, the narrow strip of sand around Haeundae has become Korea's most popular beach.<br><br> During the summer, especially on weekends, the area becomes a wall of humanity. Because of its easy access from downtown Busan and anywhere else in Korea and the famous beautiful beach atmosphere, the beach is busy year round with several kinds of beach festivals and visitors from both inside and outside of the country. The beach is regarded as one of the finest beaches in the world with its great night view, beautiful coast line, white sand, green pine trees, hot spring, and five star hotels.<br><br> During the hot summer months (late July to early August which is the time for summer vacations in Korea), Haeundae Beach becomes heavily crowded, turning into a virtual human wall with thousands of people and parasols packed into a mile of sand. Nearby is Nurimaru (pure Korean meaning for nuri is 8world 9 and for maru is 8peak 9 or 8top 9), developed in preparation for the 17 th APEC (Asia Pacific Economic Cooperation) summit in 2005, as the conference hall for APEC. The building is three stories high and is located on the tip of Dongbaek Island, which is famous for its scenic beauty.<br><br> The ceiling of the Nurimaru is modelled after Seokguram, the famous Buddhist temple in Gyeongju. The walk from 15 L ast week I saw 8Lendvay and Friends 9 and the Hyundai Arts Centre. Special thanks to Minnie Lee for letting me go with her.<br><br> She always organises great events. The performance started at precisely 8 p.m. with Jozsef Lendvay leading the group out.<br><br> He was born in Budapest and attended Bela Bartok Conservatory and the Frank Liszt Music Academy. He won his first violin competition at seven and plays a violin made by Giovanni Tesstore in 1777. The second violinist was Nicolae Taracita from Moldavia.<br><br> When he was 20 he won first place at an international contest in Cita di Stresa in Italy. Nicolae has been a member of the Philharmonie der Nationen since 1977. Peter Menyhart learnt viola in Hungary and Austria.<br><br> He has played in many symphony orchestras as well as the Graz Chamber Opera Orchestra. Most recently Menyhart has served as viola soloist in the Philharmonie der Nationen since 1996. Double bassist Corneliu-Cosmin (Cornelius) Puican was born in Transylvania (to the audience 9s ooohs and ahhhhs) in 1970.<br><br> He won the 8Premio Speciale 9 prize at the Bottesini Bass Festival in Crema, Italy. He is now section leader of the Philharmonie der Nationen. Alexander Bagrintsev hails from Minsk, Belarus.<br><br> He won his first international competition for young cellists in Czechoslovakia at the age of 14. After graduating from the conservatory in Minsk, he continued his studies in Berlin and Hamburg. He has been first cellist and soloist with the Philharmonie der Nationen since 1990.<br><br> One of the pieces the group played was called 8Moscow Nights 9. I imagine a crowded dance hall like something out of the opening chapters of War and Peace, with young and old dancing (or trying to dance) and making idle chatter. One young woman spies a handsome young man in a corner with his friend.<br><br> This young man is oblivious to her glances though. There is also someone hurrying to get to the dance hall in time, before all the guests retire. But he is staying away from the main roads, where prying eyes might catch a glimpse and recognise him.<br><br> He is using the shadows as cover, trying to remain unnoticed. Perhaps he has been forbidden by some patrician from joining the festivities, for he is handsome and wealthy and there may be some controversy should he attract the attention of the wrong people. He approaches the door of the hall and the doorman notices him, his steps slow and the music fades away as everyone turns to face the mysterious stranger.<br><br> Another piece was the 8Hora Transsilvania 9, a traditional Transylvanian dance performed by Cornelius. He amazed the audience with his fantastic dancing. 8Flight of the Bumblebee 9 had me almost imagining there was a real bumblebee buzzing around during the performance.<br><br> But by far the most entertaining part of the night was the bird impersonation battle between Jozsef and Nicolae. It was like sitting under a tree during spring with two birds showing off, to attract a mate. Peter had no response when the violinists challenged him to make an animal sound.<br><br> Alexander impersonated an F-1 race car and ambulance complete with Doppler Effect (perhaps the race car crashed?). Poor Cornelius could only muster a ship 9s horn, but he drew the most applause. Moonshine by George Deftereos Lendvay and Friends Chinese Takeout Night H i, everyone.<br><br> We had a wonderful Chinese takeout night May 22. Maybe some of you still cherish the memory of the delicious food. Which do you like the best?<br><br> Sweet and sour chicken, fried rice, pork stew or Chinese baozi? No matter which one you like best, I would like to say each dish you 9ve got on that day was not only a dish, but also a labour of love as each dish it contained many ladies efforts. These ladies were Violet, Annette, Blandine, Sarah, Bella, Nienke and Yuying, and my mum who came especially for the Baozi.<br><br> Holding the number of order, we were both excited and worried. Such large quantities, it was like cooking for the cafeteria. With the ordinary family facilities, how could this task be accomplished?<br><br> Luckily, we had these nice ladies who came to help as volunteers and that made this work much easier. Nevertheless, the chef we had was not only full of talent, but also diligent. In order to save more time for the day time, she stayed up one night before to cook the pork stew which saved lots of time for the next day.<br><br> When all the ladies came, a real battle was going to start. Chopping was the biggest task for all the dishes. What 9s more, different dishes needed to be chopped into different shapes.<br><br> For a while, everybody was chopping. During this process, we didn 9t need lots of explanation, or even to ask for a task. Just on sight, we get what to do next.<br><br> Everyone is a good cook with great talent. In the end, thanks to all the people who took part in this Chinese takeout night held by the Orphanage Committee. No matter if you were the one who did the cooking or you were the one who brought the food, we truly believe that giving is receiving.<br><br> With your generousness, the baby department and Onsan families with handicapped children will be well looked after. by Cindy Lee 16 A Letter from Hyundai Foreign School Storytellers Boomerangs, Clapsticks and Didgeridoos T raditional Australian Aboriginal music resounded through the school with the annual visit of Australian artist, Roman Schatz and storyteller Morgan Schatz Blackrose. On previous visits they have conducted printmaking workshops, overseen the making of a textile sculpture and curated an abstract art exhibition.<br><br> This year they assisted students in painting didgeridoos, boomerangs and clapsticks, which were featured in a whole school performance at the end of their week residency. Morgan and Roman believe that the combination of oral, visual and musical storytelling is ideal for communicating ideas across cultures as well as being a celebration of both cultural identity and global citizenship. They worked with students in an exploration of visual, verbal and performance aspects of storytelling.<br><br> This included symbolism, colour association, rhythm, dance and sign language. They applied the collective process of traditional Aboriginal artmaking and storytelling to culminate in a concert where every student from Reception to Year 9 participated. Diary T oday was the first day of storytelling week...well it wasn't just storytelling week, it was arts and crafts week as well.<br><br> Today was when we met Moriah who is the daughter of Morgan, the storyteller and Roman, the artist. Speaking of Roman, we made Didgeridoos with him. What is a Didgeridoo you ask?<br><br> A Didgeridoo is an instrument of the idiophone class. Idiophones are blowing instruments that cannot be tuned. Anyway, we tried to blow in the PVC pipes, (that 9s what we made Didgeridoos out of, but real ones are made of wood) but too bad, no one got the right sound.<br><br> We tried painting a background, I painted mine yellow because I was going to make a cheeseridoo but it turned into a cheetahridoo. After we made our didgeridoos (or Cheetahridoos for me) we heard a short story from Morgan. " June 9 th , Abhijat Verma Year 6 I t was storytelling week.<br><br> I bet you that it's not like last year. Mr.'O' told us that we were going to paint a didgeridoo, and play it in a performance. In the afternoon, we saw Roman and Morgan.<br><br> Roman showed us the uncolored didgeridoos. Morgan gave us the paintbrushes and a box of paint. Abhijat got the best shirt (oh, gosh).<br><br> Well, never mind that. We started painting. Roman stopped us and showed us some designs on didgeridoos.<br><br> He showed us what year 5 did as their designs. It was . .<br><br> . weird. Well I started painting with yellow.<br><br> Ok, I'm not gonna tell what I did, make your own! When I finished I put it outside to dry out, I put it near Abhijat 9s weird cheetah didgeridoo. Hans made something like fire.<br><br> The next day we did it again. In the afternoon we went to look at our didgeridoos. Before that, we listened to a song from Morgan.<br><br> The songs name was Inaneao (hope I spelt it right). Then we went to pick up our didgeridoos, they were dry! Then we made some more decorations on our didgeridoos.<br><br> Then Roman told us about the longest didgeridoo. It was a mind annoying 3 meters long. When we finished our didgeridoos we started to put beeswax at the top of our didgeridoo.<br><br> It smelled really bad, but it makes your mouth smooth and it sticks to the didgeridoo. Then we put on some colored tape. Laura made a crazy pattern; it was red, yellow, red, yellow, red, yellow, and finally stopped, for some reason.<br><br> Then we finished the other didgeridoos and left them to dry again. On Friday, it was time for our performance. We brought our didgeridoos from the art room, and sat on the floor, in a square.<br><br> We learned some signs from Morgan. When she pointed up, we had to put our didgeridoo upwards. When she pointed down, we had to be ready to play.<br><br> We turned off the lights and the little kids came in. The Reception - Year 2 had clapsticks, and Year 3 had boomerangs. Then Morgan played the song and the Year 3 made a dance with the boomerangs, and the little kids started playing the clap sticks.<br><br> We remembered when we had to start to play, and it was brilliant. Everyone started playing weird sounds with their didgeridoos. Everyone loved it.<br><br> When we finished, Morgan and Roman said we can take whatever we made home. I took my didgeridoo home with my 1 ton heavy bag, with tons of books in it. We had a fun week.<br><br> I wonder what we 9ll do next year, only if I'm going to be here next year. " June 9 th , Ashwin Jawalikar Year 6 T he story tellers came to H.F.S. I felt so excited because last year when the storytellers came we made beautiful friendship books, I wondered what we were going to make this time?<br><br> After a few minutes we finally went to the art room to meet the story tellers. We found a seat to sit on and the story tellers told us that we were going to make didgeridoos. At first I didn't know what a didgeridoo was but as she told us some stories about didgeridoos.<br><br> 17 I knew what a didgeridoo was. We got a didgeridoo and we started painting them, I painted mine green. I didn't have time to finish my didgeridoo so we were going to do it the next day.<br><br> (June 9 th ) ........................................................................... Today we went to see the storytellers and we finished painting our didgeridoos. Morgan, our storyteller told us a story of how a long time ago elephants had short noses, then we practiced playing our didgeridoos.<br><br> (June 10 th ) .................................................................... Today was the day to do our performance. I was so excited, but before the performance we took lots of pictures of us holding didgeridoos.<br><br> It was time for the performance; the little kids made clap sticks and the younger kids made boomerangs. The storytellers told a story about a mouse called little mouse dear, then the boomerangers danced and the clapstickers clapped and the digeridooers blew. It sounded so beautiful and it was wonderful to see the boomerangers dance.<br><br> It was a very fun time with the story tellers. (June the 11 th ) " Jenny Bray Year 5 Storytelling O n Tuesday the story tellers came and I was very excited because last year when I was in year 4 Morgan told me wonderful stories and Roman did art with us, it was awesome. This year I was waiting for another awesome story and I was looking forward to do art with Roman.<br><br> I was wondering what I was doing for art and what story Morgan was going to tell me. I went to art with my year 5 class and Roman said we were going to paint didgeridoos. I was really excited but they weren't real ones made of wood they were made of plastic but they still sounded like real ones.<br><br> So then he gave me a didgeridoo and he showed us his didgeridoo he had painted; it looked fantastic and cool, his design was a cherry blossom tree. Then we got to paint the didgeridoo; first we had to paint the coat of it. When we finished Morgan told us a story and it was about how the elephant got its long nose but there are a lot of different versions of, it was really funny and everybody laughed.<br><br> Then the next day we got to design our didgeridoo. My friend Nick did scorpions for his design; it looked superb and they all looked really cool. Then we finished them and we let them dry.<br><br> On Friday we got to practice on our didgeridoos because they told us that we were going to do a performance; it was really fun practicing because they made funny sounds. Roman was very good and we were not so bad. We started at 1:20 p.m.<br><br> and Morgan played a song called, Inanea. year 1 to year 2 made clap sticks and year 3 made boomerangs and year 4 to year 9 made didgeridoos, and when she played year 1 and 2 played their clap sticks and year 3 did a boomerang dance and we played our didgeridoos. I liked the performance heaps and I think we did well.<br><br> When the performance ended the story tellers had to go and I had a great time with them and I can't wait for next year. " Oskar O'Halloran Year 5 O n Tuesday the beginning of story telling week began, most of the students were pretty excited. When the story tellers got here we had no idea about what we were going to do.<br><br> When they got here we found out their names were Morgan and Roman. Later that day we painted didgeridoos and the year 3's painted boomerangs and the other kids painted clap sticks. It was really fun and hard getting the perfect designs on the didgeridoos: their like long tubes are made of wood in Northern Australia but we got plastic.<br><br> When we were waiting for our didgeridoos to dry Morgan told us a story about how the elephants got their long noses in Australia but there are lots of stories about how they got their long noses and I know one and it goes like this: Once upon a time a herd of elephants lived in Australia and they only ate grass and small bushes, but one day there was a forest fire and the elephants were scared and the bees were scared too so the bees had an idea, so the bees said to the elephants 3 cwe know where the safest place is for us, we will tell you how to get there. d cOk get on our back" said the elephants. "How about up your noses where it is damp and moist" said the bees. "Ok" said the elephants, so they got up their noses and told the elephants where to go .<br><br> When they got there the elephants told the bees to get out but they didn't want to get out so the elephants blew and blew and their noses grew longer and longer and the only way to get them out is to smoke them out because bees don't like smoke, so they got the bees out and the bees found a new home and lived together in harmony. On Wednesday we got to make the designs and I got to make scorpions and snakes and dots on mine and Oskar put a big snake and dots on his and I think it looks really cool and it was really hard to paint on a long tube. On Thursday we were waiting for the didgeridoos to dry and Morgan told us a story and after that we were practicing for the performance so we used the ones that hadn 9t been painted.<br><br> It was the big day to perform in front of the parents. The clapstickers were ready and the boomerangers were ready and we were ready. Before we started the song Morgan told us another story " Nick Ryan Year 5 18 Whale Watching Cruise The only whale watching cruise in Korea begins July 4 th at the Jangsaengpo Harbour and is presented by Namgu council in Ulsan.<br><br> The schedule will be flexible for the season because the unpredictable whales are constantly moving in search of prey. From April to June and from September to October, the cruise runs three times a week following the whales 9 food, schools of herring and anchovy in the spring, and schools of saury in autumn. Also, in these whale watching seasons, the cruise will expand its coverage, from Jangsaengpo Harbour to a spot ten kilometres away from Ulgi Lighthouse, where whales appear the most often.<br><br> In November, September and March, the odds of encountering a school of whales are the lowest of the year. During these months, only the Night Watching cruise will be available. This Night Cruise offers a fantastic view of several harbours, shipyards and the surrounding lights of the area.<br><br> The Whale Watching cruise runs every Wednesday, Saturday, and Sunday at 10:00 a.m. for three hours from April to October. The cost is W 25,000 for non-residents but W 20,000 for residents in Ulsan, and the price for children is W 13,000 for non-residents but W 10,000 for residents in Ulsan.<br><br> Although the chance of encountering whales is relatively low compared to other countries 9 whale watching cruises, it will nevertheless be a good experience to blow off some hot summer steam.
