I got a Korean name!

This past Saturday (August 12) I spent the day with five of my Korean friends. First I met with Haeyun for lunch. Haeyun was in my small group and she couldn’t come to the baseball game, so we wanted to get together before I leave. We went to an Italian restuarant and then I did some shopping with her at Insa-dong. Our time together was short but I’m glad we got to see each other again before I go back to Canada!
Then at 3pm I met up with three of my Korean friends I met in Toronto at Calvary church where I volunteered for a year and a half teaching teaching English. The names of my Korean friends I met up with are: Moonsoo, Sue and Lynn. We went to Can more restaurant and we ate pat bing su. Pat bing su is ice cream, ice, red beans and it’s topped with fruit (except we didn’t have any red beans this time). The restuarant we went to was really nice and all the chairs swung!
After we ate our pat bing su and hung out for a bit we went back to Insa-dong. Insa-dong is a traditional cultural street and it’s a great place for souvier shopping! I did all of my Christmas shopping there and mailed a box home for my family and friends. My friends helped me finish my souvenier shopping before I return home.
When we decided we had enough shopping we decided to look for somewhere to eat for dinner. Kay joined us for dinner. He is Moonsoo’s friend and they also met at Calvary church. Sue and Lynn thought about going to this specific restuarant but we couldn’t find it. After we walk around for an hour we decided to look for another restuarant. We finally went to this one Korean restuarant for dinner. Over dinner I asked Sue, Lynn and Kay what their Korean names are because I didn’t know! Sue’s Korean name is Phil sue, Lynn’s is Eun Hee and Kay’s is Ki hong.
Then I asked them what Korean name they would give me. They talked along themselves in Korean and finally decided on Eun ji. Moonsoo knows my nickname is Ange (my Dad calls me that and sometimes Angie), so it sounds a bit similar to my nickname. In Korea meanings to names are very important, so I wanted to know what my Korean name means. Eun ji means knowledge and grace. I really like it!
In Romania, I already have a Romanian name except for it’s pronouced a bit different with the rolled “r”.
So, now I have a Korean name and God gave me my Romanian name to my parents!
