Korean friends told me that the weather in Korea is changing. In the old days, there will be a routine of about 4 days cold and 3 days hot in the late autumn. However, it is very hard to predict the weather now due to global warming. Koreans depend very much on the weather forecast to decide fashion and what to wear the next day. There is a saying in Korea that you will sense the changing of weather by just looking at the daily girls fashion on the street. Last year summer, the girls shortest skirt is up to 24cm above the knee. However, it was reported that the record has gone to 28cm during this summer. Good for guys. ^^ However, th disadvantage is that the sexy skirt may draw off your attention on the street and endanger you to the traffic around. Too bad, i cant provide you with Korean girls photos on the street. ^^ Korean girl can really stand cold. The girls like to wear shorts and mini skirt plus a layer of stocking during the late autumn or sometimes in the winter. However, they wear 3 to 4 layers on the upper part of the body. Quite a contrast^^ This might anger most of you cute ladies but my hypothesis is that girls tend to have more fat on their legs hence able to stand the cold. Wahahaha!
Attached herewith the photo descriping how serious is the global warming . Dont just 'talk' the global warming but 'walk' it. Only 48% are willing to spend additional money in gasoline taxes to achieve the goal in reducing US GHG emissions. It is convenient to blame the industry but most people are unaware that they are actually the source of the CO2 emissions. Some countries had made clear that they wouldn't sacrifice the economy development to CO2 emission deduction policy. So my humble first step in reducing Green House Gas is to wear sexy short pant in the next summer to reduce the usage of aircond; and stop taking bath for 3 months in the coming winter to save hot water ^^

No More Racist, i have my own 'pure' blood pride too---Drafting of law to prevent discrimination in Korea
South Korea is a country where people were taught to take pride in their nation’s “ethnic homogeneity” and where the words “skin color” and “peach” are synonymous. Koreans are very proud of their 'pure' blood. Most of the Korean parents prefer their children to marry with their own race. Once i talked to an 'Ajuma' (Korean middle age lady), she is the owner of my frequent restaurant. She told me that she prefer her daughter to marry with Korean man because international marriage brings alot of unforssen problems in the future. She also advice me to marry a Msian women instead of Korean lady. ^^ I was up-set at that moment thinking that i have my own 'pure' blood pride too. However, i understand it was just a normal judgement that international marriage might couse confusion for the future generation.
If by any chance i got marry with a Korean lady, is she willing to stay with me in Msia, a hot country and with its own discriminative law towards minority races like my race. Anyhow, i believe there are only two types of homosapiens, the good ppl and bad ppl. How good is good and how bad is bad? I have my own standard but it wont variant too far from what you expect. All and all, Koreans are nice ppl and i salute them for their pride and culture. Wish me luck so that i can meet my right companion here in Korea (no prejudice but only ladies are welcome, not men), the lucky place for me.
From the article, i've also learned that even today, the North Korean authorities often force abortion on women who return home pregnant after going to China to find food, according to defectors and human rights groups. For many Koreans, the first encounter with non-Asians came during the Korean War, when American troops fought on the South Korean side. That experience has complicated South Koreans’ racial perceptions, Mr. Seol said. Today, the mix of envy and loathing of the West, especially of white Americans, is apparent in daily life.
