Daegu Favorites – Coffee Myungga

I have been really slacking on updating here.  I have been so busy with other ventures, but I want to continue to share my thoughts on life in Korea.  I love life here.  So much so that part of me doesn’t want to leave, and I know I’ll be back.  Each day I get to see some of the greatest kids, and I get to teach them a little.  It’s a fun job that is also rewarding.  I can see many of them getting much better at English, and knowing I have been a little part of that is satisfying.

But I also love life here for other reasons as well.  I can lead a nice life. There is little stress here, and I have time and money to do as I please. My day usually starts late and ends even later, but I love that.

My favorite hangout before work is in the same building where I work.  On the top floor of the building, the 15th, is Coffee Myungga. I come here a lot during the week for my late morning breakfast and coffee before work. I was never a coffee drinker before coming to Korea, but ever since I tried it at Coffee Myungga, I really like it.

Many of my mornings start with a bagel and coffee (Americano). It’s a nice start for me as I usually sit with my laptop or just a good book to read. I am usually there when they open at noon, and I sit until I have to go downstairs for work at 2pm. It’s usually a nice quiet morning as well since they do not get busy during that time and many mornings I have the place to myself.

Coffee Myungga is just one thing I will miss about Korea.  No matter where I wind up, I know I will be able to find a similar place, but it will never be the same. However, I do look forward to wherever my path may lead me next. Whether that is back to Daegu or another city, I know I want to come back here to enjoy everything Korea has to offer.
