Coffee and cigarettes: best combination in the world.

I've been to England twice, but still haven't seen London.

I came across your blog because I'm moving to South Korea in about a week, so I thought I would say hello.

So, hello.

Yeah, you're absolutely right!
I've just been to your lovely blog, which has got the picture of "Coffee And Cigarettes" in title. That movie is just what I crazy about! I've seen it again and again and again, and put into my iPod to see it at anytime!

Anyway, good to meet you, as you're the first person who left the message. Actually I've just started blogging. zz

Are you coming to Korea?
Then I'd say hello and very warm welcome you as well!

It's a truly great film. With a truly great subject.

Thank you very much for the welcome. I will be there soon. Very excited.

Are you back in Korea now? How long were you in England?

Your photos are great....

I've just came back to Korea about 2 months ago. I had been living in London for 10 months to learn English(as you might have had a guess). But sadly my English doesn't show that I've been in England for that much of time.;;;

Anyway, can I just ask you the reason for coming to Korea, if you don't mind? Well, I can see a foreigner here more often than before, but I was just wondering. Have you got a anything exciting? :)

Well, I was working as an "English as a Second Language" teacher at an art university in Brooklyn and I had so many lovely Korean students... I thought I would go to Korea for a while to teach, see how I like it. Just to be somewhere besides the US, travel a little.

I'm pretty nervous. But more so eager to arrive and start exploring.

Also I see you like The Dreamers. I think I have every line in that film memorized. You have very good taste in film.... according to me, anyway.

I had a right guess on that point then. Here, there are such a tough competition for 'success' in everywhere. The competition is extremely high, so you might feel strange, I'd say. Even for me, it's really crazy so I cannot convince myself sometimes. Speaking good English is the most important thing they love to have. (I guess you know what it's like already) It's gonna be long story anyway, so I don't wanna get you bored.

Something to tell you about The Dreamer...
I saw it many times too, and it made me think of many things I'm facing. I think it's the film that everyone should watch!

I'm not sure if I've got good taste in film though, as I can't say that I understand what I'm watching all the time. -_ -

Enough from me, I've just been on the way from dental clinic, it's really painful.;;
It would be great if I can keep in touch with you:-)

If you understand everything you watch the first time, though, there is no reason to watch it over and over right? I think the best films are the ones you understand a little more every time you watch.

Oh, the dentist! I hate the dentist. Scary.

Please do keep in touch. I think we have a lot in common. My email address, by the way, is imnopicasso@gmail.com. Just in case. But stop by and say hello sometimes!

You're absolutely right again, as I have to say that I agree with you on that point. Good movie cannot be understood easily sometimes. (good movie doesn't have to be difficult to understand, though)

Meeting new people on the Internet is something I rarely make, but strangely, now I feel that we could be a friend as you mentioned. I'm so pleased about it.

Bye for now, then :)
