Hello / Annyong!

Welcome to the new members of the group, and hope to see you at a meetup.

Tonight's Annandale Saturday Night - Il Mee has 10+ people going. Thanks to Casey for helping to make it a bigger event!

If you get there late, it's okay... we'll probably sit down at 6:45pm.

One item we won't be munching on are silkworms (peondegi)... see last article below.

News & Articles

- The South Korean Won, if you haven't seen the news, has dipped to 1500 for one US dollar. This means that people in S. Korea have to pay 50% more for US dollars than a few months ago, when you only got 950 or 1000 won for one dollar.

* Articles: Bloomberg 11/22/08 - Asian Currencies, and also in the Financial Times (yen)
