Hey guise!

If you couldn’t tell by now by our last two videos, we’re in Canada now! Woohoo!

Now, we didn’t announce it to anyone at all because we wanted it to be a totally surprise to our families. See, we usually go to Canada once a year during the summer, but we didn’t go this summer, which was kind of sad for us and our families. We told them that we’d be coming for Christmas instead, while – really – we had planned on surprising them now. Woot! So we couldn’t announce our trip to Canada anywhere because, well, our families follow our site (hi moms and dads and siblings!).

Anyhow, long story short, this is the video of us surprising our families! It’s a bit long, because we did five different surprises for everyone. EVERYONE WAS SEPARATED! WHYYYYYYYY?! We had planned on surprising Martina’s parents together at Starbucks, which they regularly go to in the mornings, but – of course – they had a random change of schedule for that day, so that plan got a bit ruined, but we improvised! Also, Simon’s father was supposed to be home when we came there first, but he had won a Bronze Life Master standing for bridge just the day before, so he was out doing something bridge related at that time. So instead of three videos we have five. YAY!

So, we’re in Toronto until the 5th of November, and then we’re heading back to Korea. We’ll be filming our Music Mondays in Canada until then, but next week we’re just going to be doing vloggity vlogging around Toronto. Yeah!

Also, if you want to stop by and hang out with us while we’re here, you can meet us at University of Toronto on November 3rd.

Woot! We’ll be there for a bit to talk about living in Korea and whatnot, so stop on by for super fun times! And there will be cake! Actually, that was a lie. There will be no cake. But there will be Spudgy! :D

  15. This has to be one of my favorite videos from you two.  Probably cause I’m a sucker for all things family-related.  Definitely enjoyed this and hope that you’re enjoying your time at home. :)

  16. Let’s put this simple. While I watched that video, my mom suddenly asked (from the other side of the house): What are you doing? So, for the first time since I started watching your videos, I told her about you and while my mom is very much against sharing privet lives on the Internet (I dunno how she will feel about my blogging ideas), 

    In any case, while I found your video hilarious (secretly scheming to do something like this when I start working, because I hope and study to work abroad), she had me sternly promise not to do something like this to put up n youtube. Oh dear mom… don’t you worry, there are more ways than one to secretly prepare sneak attacks… *just thinking sneaky Christmas gifts for the eh… what is it now…. 5th year in a row).

    • I think the best were the mums! They both had to have a second, even a third look to recognize their children! :P

  33. A long comment, hope you don’t mind !
    Thanks for this super-site and article. ( I posted in another topic too today)

    I am from the Netherlands, Europe.
    From my wife’s side, we have family near Toronto, direction Niagara Falls. That has become a warm bond, we have visited them several times through the years

     A Canadian forum-buddy who lived in Korea in 2009 put me on the Korea-track in that year.
    Out of curiosity, I watched some Korean drama and movies, and I became hooked ever after.
    And an admirer of Korean culture in more ways.

    I only found this site this week, searching for information about Korea in Toronto, because we hope to be able to travel again in June this year. This time we want to spend some nights in the city, in Chinatown and Koreatown,  The information on your site has been very useful, for making more detailed plans for our visit.
    Kam sa mi da !
