Humor from former Ambassadors in Korea:

The following humor was contributed by a kind-hearted and generous-minded former ambassador to Korea from a Central Asian country and a Kenyan doctorate candidate in Seoul:

Absolute Classic!!!

An attractive young woman on a flight from Ireland asked the Priest beside her, “Father, may I ask a favor?”

Of course child. What may I do for you?”

Well, I bought my mother an expensive hair dryer for her birthday. It is unopened but well over the Customs limits and I am afraid they will confiscate it. Is there any way you could carry it through customs for me? Hide it under your robes perhaps?”

I would love to help you, dear, but I must warn you, I will not lie.”

With your face, Father, no one will question you.”

When they got to Customs, she let the priest go first. The official asked, “Father, do you have anything to declare?”

From the top of my head down to my waist, I have nothing to declare.”

The official thought this answer strange, so asked, “And what do you have to declare from your waist to the floor?”

"I have a marvelous Instrument designed to be used on a woman, but which is, to date, unused.”

Roaring with laughter, the official said, “Go ahead, Father. Next Please.”

Kenyans in Diaspora...

A father in Kenya calls his son in South Africa a week to Christmas and says, “I hate to ruin your day but I have to tell you that your mother and I are divorcing, forty five years of misery is enough.”

“Dad what are you talking about?” The son screams.

“We can’t stand the sight of each other any longer,” the father says. “We are sick of each other and I am sick of talking about this, so you call your sister in UK and tell her.”

Frantically the son calls his sister who explodes on the phone like hell>

“They're getting divorced?" she shouts. “I'll take care of this.”

She calls home immediately and screams at her father, “You are not getting divorced. Don’t do a single thing until I get there. I 'm calling my brother back and we'll both be there before Christmas day. Until then don’t do a thing. Do you hear me?” She hangs up.

The old man hangs up, too, and turns to his wife.

“I TOLD YOU, IT’S DONE! They are coming home for Christmas.”

*         *         *         *         *         *

Only for Friends!

Two 90-year-old men, Mike and Joe, have been friends all of their lives.

When it's clear that Joe is dying, Mike visits him every day.

One day Mike says, "Joe, we both loved cricket all our lives, and we played cricket on Saturdays together for so many years. Please do me one favour. When you get to Heaven, somehow you must let me know if there's bat and ball there."

Joe looks up at Mike from his death bed, and assures him, "Mike, you've been my best friend for many years. If it's at all possible, I'll do this favour for you.”

Shortly after that, Joe passes away.

At midnight a couple of nights later, Mike is awakened from a sound sleep by a blinding flash of white light and a voice calling out to him, "Mike, Mike."

"Who is it?” asks Mike sitting up suddenly. "Who is it?"

"Mike, it's me, Joe."

"You're not Joe. Joe just died."

"I'm telling you, it's me, Joe," insists the voice.

"Joe! Where are you?"

"In the Heaven," replies Joe. "I have some really good news and a little bad news."

"Tell me the good news first," says Mike.

"The good news," Joe says," is that there's bat and ball in the Heaven. Better yet, all of our old friends who died before us are here, too. Better than that, we're all young again. Better still, it's always spring time and it never rains or snows. And best of all, we can play cricket all we want, and we never get tired."

That's fantastic," says Mike. "It's beyond my wildest dreams! So what's the bad news?

"You're in the team for this Saturday's match!!!"

A letter from Ku Su-jeong of the Korean-Vietnamese Peace Foundation

The organization behind the “Vietnam Pieta” bronze statue is the Korean-Vietnamese Peace Foundation, as it is tentatively named.

Indeed, the visits could prove a turning point for the sanctions.

Students guarding comfort women statue endure a cold watch

Large flakes of snow fell from the Seoul sky on the evening of Jan. 13, prompting the young students performing a sit-in demonstration next to the peace statue in front of the Japanese embassy in Seoul to cover their heads with plastic sheeting and car covers. What they could not do was enter tents to avoid the snow - an action disallowed by police.“Early on, I was just wearing a hat, and I couldn’t take it anymore,” said 21-year-old Jeong U-ryeong.

Now the matters appear poised to cross the line and hurt Seoul’s and Washington’s ties with Beijing,.

Ambassadors, senior diplomats visit Handong Global University in Pohang

Ambassadors NatalliaZhylevich of Belarus, Kouassi Bile of Cote d’Ivoire, Jorge Roballo of Argentina and Mohamed Abdi Gello of Kenya and 20 other senior diplomats, including the charges d’affaires, visited Handong Global University in Pohang City on the Southeast Coast of Korea on Nov. 12, 2015 at the invitation of President Soon-Heung Chang of the University.

The tour, organized by The Korea Post, included also a visit to POSCO and a cruise ride around the harbor of the Pohang City.

The Korea Post has been organizing tours for the ambassadors and other senior members of the Seoul Diplomatic Corps for the past 30 years, but it must be said that the one hosted by Handong Global University is one of the most impressive in terms of the interest on the part of the host who met the guests with a true heart and warm welcome.

President Soon-Heung Chang of the University made such an excellent arrangement out of respect and special regard for the distinguished international guests by asking his Vice President Simon Kang(Administrative Affairs) and Professor JinwonAhn (School of Management and Economics) to come all the way from Pohang to Seoul to welcome and escort the ambassadors and other senior diplomats to comfortably visit his University.

The tour of the Handong Global University was a truly memorable one where many outstanding features of the University continuously surprised the visiting ambassadors and the other senior diplomats. For further details, visit: /news/view.html?section=161&category=181&no=1119
