Keep reading! I'm having a drawing one week from today!
When I heard about this company I thought:
"Wow, this is a GREAT thing for new people moving to Korea."
When I was invited to hear their sales pitch I went for one reason and one reason only - to help promote them to the "Newbies" moving to Korea. As you all know helping newbies is what I love to do and what a great idea especially for those folks that are just moving here that might be a little apprehensive to get out and explore this amazing city on their own.
I didn't think for even one second that I would ever use PCE personally...I mean I have lived here for almost 3 years (if you add up both times) and I am good at figuring things out. I mean I can speak pretty good Konglish, I even thought "heck - I should work for this company".
I left that informative session with more than information for this blog post....I left with a membership.
So you ask me, "Why, what is so great about PCE?"
PCE is not only great for the newbies, but for everyone! They are your Korean best friend. They can help you get things done EASILY. It is no secret that living in a foreign country can be hard at times and sometimes you just want to throw your hands up in defeat, but with PCE in your back pocket you don't have to. Just give PCE a buzz and they will help you get things done in just a few minutes - instead of many hours of research.
For example, a few things they have done for me:
Date night. You guys know Hubby and I like to go out every Saturday Night - what you don't know is that I spend HOURS and I mean HOURS scouring the internet and looking at expat magazines searching for ideas. When Paul over at PCE heard that we LOVE Thai food he recommended that we try out Yum Thai and then recommended a couple of places for us to visit after dinner - this was a whole new area of Seoul I had never explored! It turned out to be a great night and I didn't research a thing!
My Camera. The lens on my camera got stuck - I know I could have researched, found a certified dealer and spent the day getting my camera fixed (and most likely get lost along the way..). Instead I called PCE, dropped my camera off with them and they brought it back to me the next day 100% functional. Bam. It took me MAYBE 30 minutes instead of all day.
Translation: I couldn't read something - took a picture of it, texted it to PCE they translated it for me in seconds.
Buying stuff in Korea: What a PAIN in the arse it is sometimes. You have to have a special Korean bank card of some sort. I don't have one. I just want to use my debit card, but NO they won't let me. Hubby and I want to see Jason Mraz in concert - I want VIP seating - VIP seating wasn't available for me to buy - in fact there were no seats available - standing room only was available and I would have had to go somewhere in town to purchase the tickets instead of from the ease of the chair I am sitting in right now. SO what did I do? That's right, I called PCE - told them what I wanted. They were able to get us seats 2 rows behind VIP seating. (Don't ask me how they did it...they are magical...). They paid for it with their special little card and I paid them. Easy as that.
And this is just a tiny sampling of the things they can do for you.
