A little while ago I was walking past Jogye Temple I saw this golden piggy sitting in plastic at the front of a Buddhist clothing and stuff shop.  I remembered that the “Year of the Golden Pig”  had seen pig-things all over Korea, and thought that this must be a leftover from 2008.

A little further down from this shop I saw another golden piggy sitting next to a lotus flower–cute!

I should have taken some pictures of all the pig stuff students had back in 2008: pig pencil cases, pig pillows, pig backpacks, pig hats–it was a pigorama!
