TTFN – Getting Ready for South Korea

By this time tomorrow morning, I will be in the “Land of the Morning Calm” to participate in the 7th DPI World Assembly and the IL Global Summit. I understand that 70% of the household in South Korea have broadband Internet access. The hotel that I am staying in have high-speed Internet access. Blogging from Seoul should not be a problem. It all depends on whether I have the time to go online.

My schedule at the conference is packed as I will be presenting 2 papers – The Independent Living Movement in Malaysia and Transportation and Access to Physical Environment: The Malaysian Scenario – apart from attending the other workshops at the IL Global Summit and meeting of the Asia Pacific Network on Independent Living (APNIL).

Can you believe that I am only half packed for the trip? Wuan is helping me. I have a ton of things to pack for this 1-week trip – diapers, clothes, toiletries, laptop and many other smaller items that I may need. I do not fancy having to go shopping for essential items in an unfamiliar land. Got to go now. So many things to do, so little time.

  1. All the best, Peter! 🙂
    And don’t get lost in South Korea!

    It is easy to get lost in Seoul, especially when most Koreans do not speak English.

  2. Boss, tell me the nice places to go in Seoul, ok?

    I was there for a convention, not for sightseeing.
