Yesterday (Friday here in Busan), as I mentioned, was my kindergarten's Halloween party. My wife and son came with me to work, and my son especially had a great time! He was alternately scared and laughing his ass off at all the other, bigger kids (although he's taller than a few of the 4 and 5 year olds).
Tonight, being Saturday, and with Halloween officially starting at midnight, there will be lots of dress up and drink and try to score type parties in the Kyungsung University area (the current hot party area for foreigners). Some parties at PNU, and likely the Haeundae beach area as well.
I won't be attending any of them, though. Sucks to be a father of a small child.
Back in Japan, before the little guy was born, my wife and I used to love to go to our local foreigner bar Halloween parties. In fact, it was at one of them where we hit it off and became a couple.
But anyway, I really just don't have the energy to head out in costume for a night of heavy drinking. Besides, my chances of getting laid if I stay home are 100%, and if I go out alone they drop to 0%. So I'll be staying in tonight.
Happy Halloween, everyone!
