Korea Maritime University’s ship Hanbada berthed at Harbour Front Port . There was a dinner event organized for Koreans who graduated from the University and who are now working in Singapore. D was invited and i went along as a partner. D graduated from Korea Maritime University in Busan.
D brought me on a tour around the ship. Pretty amazing and the first time i get to visit a ship’s bridge. Also , i get to meet his friends , professors , captains and other Koreans who are working in Singapore and some are seamen.
Dressed in my favourite midi skirt again.
It is a simple and casual dinner in the ship. Because of the Korean conservative culture. I have to dress up abit conservatively and not too fanciful because there were alot of older and traditional Korean uncles and aunties attending this casual dinner event. Wearing a tank top and midi skirt is considered abit…..sexy. So after i went onto the ship , i covered up with a cardigan. No showing of cleavages and shoulders. Most Korean uncles and aunties are very conservative. I have to be careful with my manners , dressing , the way i eat , talk and also their culture. The way i dress, talk , look and manners reflect on D’s pride and face (面子). So if i make a mistake , it will be embarrassing for me and him too.
Fortunately , i understand and know the culture so its ok but just feeling uptight because this is the first time i met soooo many Korean seniors. I have to shake their hands, bow and greet 안녕하십니까 (annyeong-hasimnikka – formal greeting to people who are much older) or 안녕하세요 (annyeonghaseyo) .
