So, around 10:30am is when the action started. In Korea, the hospitals are similar in practice to what you might have seen in America 50 years ago - as soon as the gore starts, they kick the husband out.
I waited with her parents in the waiting room for a bit and then a nurse busted in and told me to "suit up" (um, I'm not going to mention the fact that they never once told me to wash/sanitize) /shrug
I was able to get into the delivery room to see the last few pushes (and Joo's tremendous effort), and to see our baby being born.
It's quite a surreal feeling. I really with I could describe it better, but I think that that is the perfect word for it.
So, at 11:32am on June 9th, Hannah Ha-Eun Foychuk was brought into this world in Seoul, Korea weighing 3.25kg (7.15 lbs). She's the biggest baby in the ward... and the "Whitest". lolGood luck little girl. The world is a tough place, but know that you're loved!

People talk a lot about how great HK is for shopping. Honestly, before I went, I really didn't believe them. I thought that it was probably only good for people who love the high-end brand-name type of stuff. Boy was I wrong. HK is not a perfect city, but the two things it does have going for it are shopping and food. We ended up getting all our baby needs (crib, high chair, clothes, etc..) for around $200. It would have been more than double that in Korea!
Ok, so now on to the food. I absolutely loved it there! Sure, a lot of restaurants don't have english on the menu, but when the food is this good and cheap, who needs english? I loved the smells and taste of the HK Chinese food. It's much different than the stuff in the North - not near as greasy.
One thing that kind of threw me was... what I found in a local supermarket. Whenever we go oveseas, Joo and I always love to check out the markets and bring home cool suaces and such. This time though, something jumped up at me.
Frogs! That's right, these little toady fellows were up for sale. So, what did I do?? ...
Yup, you guessed it, I ate 'em!
And what HK trip would be complete without going up to "the peak" and looking out over the city... actually, it got cloudy, so instead I hung with my main man Bruce.

Most people in Canada cannot realy understand it. When I talk to them about how life in the rest of the world is fine, and that not everyone wants to move to Canada, I get blank stares. So many people in Canada are taught from an early age that Canada is the best (and most humble) nation on the planet. That everyone is just dying to get in.
well... I'm not. And here's why:
The average Canadian family earned $63,001 in 2006 and paid taxes equalling $28,311, almost 45 per cent of its income, while spending 35.6 per cent of its income on food, clothing and housing.
Holy fudge! And what is more interesting is this:
Since 1961, the total tax bill for the average Canadian family has
increased 1,590 per cent, according to the think-tank. Meanwhile, the cost of
housing has increased 1,019 per cent, the cost of food 487 per cent and the cost
of clothing 447 per cent, the Fraser Institute said.
“Over the past 45 years, taxes have become the single largest expenditure
in an average Canadian family’s budget, with the total tax bill for a typical
family increasing by 1,590 per cent since 1961,” Veldhuis said

This is a little different though. I went for a comercial shoot a month or so back and it's running on TV. It's nothing major, but I thought you might want to look at it.
You can check it out HERE.
(Oh, and if anyone knows how to download from a video like that, post it here k)

Wow, I just watched this movie and I have to say ... Holy frickin' cow! This was visualy spectacular. The lighting and imagery were really impressive - especially on the IMAX screen.
I wasn't as comfortable with some of the "lessons" it seemed to be trying to teach though. Sure honor and loyalty to your country can be a good thing, but it just seemed a little too much for me .
This movie, minus the dialogue, would be perfect.

Well, we're over the half way point - and all is going fine. We've had more ultrasounds than I can shake a stick at, and all of them have come back good.
At this point we're seeing the 'bump' grow (and actually move from side to side on occasion).
Here's my Moonie looking oh so 'Moonful'
