Tour of Pyunkang Oriental Clinic: It is NOT October but November

Our sincere apology: In our invitation faxed to Your Excellency, we inadvertently wrote October instead of November which is the correct month.

The invitation is for the Excellencies and Madams to a Luncheon and Tour of Pyunkang Oriental Clinic for the exploration of possibilities of cooperation between Korea and your esteemed country in Oriential medicine through the use of Pyunkang Clinic.

The meeting place is the Diplomatic Center in Socheo-dong where the Uzbekistan Embassy is located, the time is 1000 hours 12 November 2014, Luncheon at 1200 hours and tour of Pyunkang Oriential Clinic 1300-1500 hours. Whoever wishes a quick checkup and diagnosis for diseases, especially respiratory diseases that are rampant in the changing times before winter, Your Excellency and/or Madam are most welcome.

It is an interesting tour good for the health of the people in your country as well as Korea, and I recommend that Your Excellency not miss the opportunity as it is only for several hours on that day and also in Seoul instead of the countryside.

The following stories by The Korea Herald and The Korea Post would give Your Excellency an idea as to what to expect from the tour:

Here is today’s ration of humor from a Korean-language business daily of this morning:

Seoul Kyungje

There was a young woman who was very much interested in marrying this wealthy old gentleman.                                                                         

After he proposed, she suggested, "we might even have some children!"                                                                                                      

The old gentleman replied, "Oh, no, my parents won't let me."

"What do you mean?" asked the young woman

"Who are your parents?" He replied, "Mother Nature and Father time."

Mrs. Yan Donko (wife of the former Austrian Ambassador in Seoul) has adopted a new ‘family member’ named Asahi (Morning Sun) which is a very cute little cat. Mrs. Donko put her story and her photo with Asahi on her Facebook timeline, and immediately she got congrats from many wives of the former and incumbent ambassadors, including the wife of the former UAE ambassador. Meet the former ambassadors and their wives at the Facebook space of The Korea Post, including former Ambassadors Koirala of Nepal, Tran of Vietnam, Al Mainnah of the UAE and Andonov of Bulgaria (incumbent).
