Anniversary: 150 Years - An Expedition to Korea
When one thinks of a General Sherman, one might think of the infamous march, or the giant tree in California... but I also think of a ship that tried to open up Korea, but find the country wanting.
My family somewhat-ancestral land is the battlefield of this little expedition, so the history is somewhat close to me. Basically United States found resistance, but met with constant practice from the Indian and Civil Wars, they absolutely crushed the opposition... and found the country not want salvaging... although... I guess they did found it salvaging, like, 80 years later... but what if we became the Philippines? Korea and Philippines has a star-crossed relationship.
Taft-Kimura agreement is one of those ominous agreement in the first decades of the 20th century, along with Sykes-Picot and so on. Something that feel very trivial, but did shape millions of people. Basically United States said to not to interfere with Japan taking over Korea, while the same thing in reverse for Philippines and the US.
It is odd to think about, but Philippines was part of the US for about 30 years, taken at the same time as Japan took Korea, and given up about the same time as well... and yet the perception is different.
I guess that's because while Japan looked up to Germany, United States was always uncomfortable about its empiric nature. Perhaps it's due to the fact that America was never meant to be an empire, like was Rome... but somehow Rome managed to form one. It somehow distilled the idea of empire into their city-state concept, while America never really got beyond Manifest Destiny. At some point, America decided to take off actual control to more implicit means of control, and now even that control is being wavered.
Sorry for not focusing, but these were the quandaries... I mean I can talk trivia, like the awesome (but bulky) bulletproof vest Koreans wore, but I don't know what to write here... I'll guess I'll end this.
ฉันมาที่นี่เพื่อเขียนข่าวเกี่ยวกับงาน Jeju International Citrus Expo อีกครั้งในวันนี้
Jeju Citrus Expo จัดงาน Citrus Expo ออนไลน์ในปี 2020
ก่อนที่ฉันจะดูงาน International Citrus Expo ในปีนี้ ฉันอยากจะมีเวลาสักครู่เพื่ออธิบายว่าเราจัดงานประเภทใดบ้างที่ Citrus Expo เมื่อปีที่แล้วและงาน Citrus Expo เกี่ยวกับอะไร
คุณรู้หรือไม่ว่า COVID-19 ส่งผลกระทบต่อโลกอย่างหนักเมื่อปีที่แล้ว
เป็นผลให้เทศกาลและการชุมนุมทั้งหมดถูกยกเลิกและบางครั้งฉันก็โดดเดี่ยวจนไม่สามารถพบครอบครัวของฉันได้ ในสถานการณ์ที่น่าสับสนนี้ที่ไม่มีใครเห็นครอบครัว เพื่อน หรือการเดินทางของตัวเอง ที่เกาะเชจู ประเทศที่ห่างไกล งาน Citrus Expo ได้ดำเนินเทศกาลไป
ความท้าทายมีชื่อเสียงใน TikTok ในปัจจุบัน
มีการจัดกิจกรรมต่างๆ รวมถึงปริศนา กิจกรรมส่งเสริมการขายโปสเตอร์ กิจกรรมการแก้ปัญหา การสมัครรับข้อมูล YouTube และการถ่ายภาพ
ปีนี้เป็นงานระดับนานาชาติ ดังนั้นฉันจะใช้ภาษาอังกฤษเยอะๆ โปรดตั้งตารอ
หากคุณเข้าสู่ YouTube คุณจะเห็นกิจกรรมที่ผ่านมา
มีวิดีโอที่คุณสามารถชมสถานที่ได้แบบ 360 องศา
มีการแสดงควิซโชว์ ฉันคิดว่ามันจะสนุก จะดีกว่าไหมถ้ามีแคปชั่น
ฉันตั้งตารองาน International Citrus Expo ในปีนี้ ซึ่งจะมีการจัดงานต่างๆ มากมาย
ต่อไปเราจะให้ข้อมูลเกี่ยวกับงานที่จะจัดขึ้นที่ 2021 Jeju International Citrus Expo ลาก่อนทุกคน!!
Day 3: Culture
Sorry the Commieburger one is so short. Was running out of inspiration and I still have a final essay to finish for a college class before work starts this week for me.
Kimchiburger: This was based off of what I just learned today while browsing Youtube for ideas. You can find the video here.
America didn’t know that chopsticks differed between Korea, Japan, and China, and thought he could learn how to use them to surprise SK. He ordered a set online, not really thinking, and showed them off one night to SK. Well... SK at least gave him an A for effort, but had to break the news to him that they weren’t the right type. America didn’t believe him when he said chopsticks varied in style between countries. SK (with help from China and Japan who gave him physical examples of the chopsticks in question), had to do a side by side comparison of the chopsticks for America to notice their differences.
For example, the lengths vary, Chinese being longest, followed by Korean, then Japanese. Korea also typically uses heavier, metal chopsticks (though wooden is still somewhat common), whereas Chinese and Japanese use wood and are lighter. Korean chopsticks typically are flatter, versus the rounder Chinese, and the Japanese starts out flat and wider at the handles and come to more of a point near the tips. He had to explain that food dictated the styles and structures of the chopsticks, like Chinese food typically being greasier and bulkier (thus thicker sticks and wooden for easier grip) and having large amounts of side dishes that are farther away in group settings (thus longer), Japanese eating more fried fish (more precision based) and having less side dishes (thus the shortness of the chopsticks), and the Korean chopsticks being more of a middle ground. He also had to explain how it was difficult even for other Asians to try using other chopstick styles (he knows for a fact China and Japan hate using his chopsticks because they feel difficult to handle and can burn your hands and mouth due to the metal heating up, whereas he doesn’t like Chinese because they are longer and rounder, making him clumsy with them). He also had to explain their was different etiquette to using them per country, such as Japan being very particular about how you pick them up and can’t point with them.
America soaked up all of this information like a sponge. SK loves teaching him different cultural facts because America’s facial expressions are some of the most endearing. Like he just has this child like wonder that SK finds really refreshing.
Then America tried daring him to eat with the different style chopsticks. That was the one dare SK was willing to decline, along with adding a pointed comment about how his skills in the other chopsticks would be comparable to America’s complete lack of experience with them.
RusNK: Place I found about Russian etiquette is here.
Ever since they first met, they’ve always done cultural exchanges of some sort, whether purely discussions or through gift exchanges and diplomatic visits. Culture shock was a big obstacle for the both of them. Like, Russia is more just curious and simply gets confused in a child-like way when there is a cultural difference. NK, he’s used to being calculated and planning ahead, he can’t really do that when he doesn’t know the culture and is more prone to sidelining and observing to avoid conflict. The cultural conflict between the two of them almost put them on the wrong foot before the idea of a romance could even begin.
In Russia, it is a common greeting for a bone crushing handshake, and to hold direct eye contact while doing so (just don’t do a handshake over a threshold). It is also custom to bring a gift of some sort when visiting and to be on time (men typically bring flowers). So imagine NK’s shock and bewilderment upon the first few meetings back and forth between the two of them when he gets his hand nearly broken each time and has to struggle with figuring out where to look (cause direct eye contact is not okay in his culture), as well as then getting seemingly random gifts and flowers from a country he barely knows. Then imagine Russia’s suspicion because Russian’s don’t like insincerity, and NK was seemingly giving off all the warning signs and appearing really rude, which also caught him off guard as he is used to the politeness of Japan and China.
It took NK finally asking Russia one day if this was normal in his country for it to finally click for Russia that the Korean wasn’t trying to be rude and he had merely forgotten about cultural differences. Once the air was cleared and they began discussion similarities and differences that they realized they both click and jive together really well. Russian’s value sincerity, NK tends to be more straightforward and honest. Both have strong family values and extensive families tend to live under one roof. Neither culture is inclined to public displays of affection. The more they find out about each other, the more each realized that they were more similar than different, despite geographic distance and different cultural influences. It helped establish a strong base not only for their friendship, but also helped in the long run for a romance to begin.
Commieburger: Any kind of cultural exchange between these two often gets... dicey to say the least. Considering a lot of either’s culture somehow winds back to politics and government, it is very difficult to avoid arguments or awkward tension. It doesn’t mean they don’t try, though.
One of the biggest ways they exchange their culture with each other is through the arts. Music, art, cooking, gardening, you name it, they’ve done it at least once. There’s a lot about a country or culture that can be expressed in their almost pure form through the arts that are produced. NK often finds and plays old tunes from even older eras from time to time for America, and America cooks a lot of food that NK wouldn’t have known were popular or had such deep roots in America’s history (and were pretty tasty to boot). It’s a lot of these finer, simpler moments that the two bond together over; something that politics can’t tamper or taint for the two of them. A chance for new, positive memories of each other to blossom.
