    you know, this reminds mo one time of a documentary I was watching when I was still in Pinas. I was surprised to know that there is a Korean School for women who are marrying Americans. Teaching Korean women about American culture, food, clothing, etc. Even with this school, Korean women are still taught to be submissive.

    annabananing >> happy chuseok… galingan mo ha!

    sunshine >> i think i’ve seen that documentary… for korean women, that school is really necessary since their culture is really different from the west… anyway, single women in the family traditionally don’t do any household chore (unless they volunteer)… it’s only when they get married that they do…

    hi betchay…kumusta na…i read your blogs na pero wala akong maisulat… hehehehehe.. anyway kumusta na ang chuseok mo? i’m sure super pagod ka like others… ako na naman super saya sa chuseok… di kami umuwi sa probensya ng asawa ko but we did a week before… nagbigay ng pera at ano ano pa…. panganay rin ang asawa ko pati rin ang tatay nya so dapat nandoon kami.. pero parang iba ang utak ng asawa ko ayaw mag travel pag big holidays dahil nga sa traffic.. kaya OO na rin ang inlaws ko… so wala akong trabaho na kagaya nyo… so three family couples (pinays) ay namasyal sa amin and slept here… ganoon na lang .. kainan at kwentohan walang tulog till morning, mga asawa naman nag lalaro ng card kaya enjoy na rin ako…. see you soon na lang ok? ingat…

  9. This is first time i heard about Chu Seok, I wonder how do you feel about the pressure of preparing for chu seok?

    Wow,this is the first time I’m learning on Korean’s occasion. It sounds complicated but at the same times looks like fun. Although all the hassle that need to be gone through, I believe this is a good way where you can gather with all your family members and spends your precious time with them.

  11. I always wondered, when is the Korean Thanksgiving day? I often thought it was just an American thing.

  12. Jessica says:

    It is interesting to have such occasion where it is equivalent of Thanksgiving, and a time to honor ancestors with newly harvested grains and fruits.

    But i heard that this is more of social and function, where they look forward to seeing their families and friends. Kids dress up in new hanbok, or traditional Korean dress, that are picked out especially for the occasion.
