KMMCS Reception

KMMCS stands for Korea Mathematical Methods for Curves and Surfaces. The seminar lasted 3 days where professors of some universities gave talk about formulae in curves and surfaces. Friday was the last day of the seminar and everyone who attended the seminar are invited to the reception. We went all the way to Boemil-dong to one of my lab mates' house to eat Sam Geok Sal [loosely translated as fried 3-layered pork]

A clearer view of the monument [too bad it was closed at that time]

what's this? It actually represents a fire, the spirit of the people fighting for democracy.

Finally, I got to eat Sam Geok Sal. I'm the last person out of the 5 trainees to try this food. It's quite delicious despite being one of the most unhealthy food in Korea [very oily]. Eating it once in a while wouldn't harm I guess. =P Billy, out.
