TOTALLY KOREAN STYLE

Thursday, March 20, 2014 0 Comments
Living away from parent and family for almost 20 years make me living my own way.
Even though I am born in Malay family my way of living is too foreign for Malay Community.
I have my own way of interpretation in life.
Nothing to proud of anyway.
I feel lucky that my parent is one sporting parent who don't too emphasis in following the culture.
They are fine as long as their daughter live happily and don't cause trouble.
I remember when many times went back to my hometown converse in Malay with Chinese Slang since most my friend was Chinese at that time.What is my Mom reaction???? hahahaha she almost slap my face. My Mom were saying , Thank God! I never send you to England.kekekekeke..
I remember cook Chinese style food when my Mom ask me to cook. muahahahaha..... she just shake her head....what happen to my daughter????
I just gave her the look that...oho Mom! this is not my fault...I just evolve according to my surrounding....hehehehe

When talking about way of eating, I am more a mixture of all cultures.

For the past few years I am an addict to Korean Cuisine and sometimes try to cook some of their dishes.Yup yup..Korean Drama and Show effect!

Last Saturday, I went to Hartamas and this place is known as Korean Town too.
There is another Korean Town which is in Ampang One.

There three korean Mart at Sri Hartamas; Seoul Mart, Kim's Mart and Lotte Mart.
Seoul Mart located near Maybank Hartamas, Lotte Mart near Pelita Nasi Kandar and  Kim's Mart just opposite Lotte Mart.

I bought a lot of Banchan from Seoul Mart and Lotte Mart. I stop myself from visiting Kim's Mart because I am afraid of my greedy side and end up overstocked my Banchan and no space to my fridge.
Kim's Mart , I will visit you soon.....

KOREAN FOOD IN MALAYSIA

Bottom Right : Spring Onion Kimchi

HOW TO EAT LIKE KOREAN

Top Left : Perilla Leaves Kimchi (my favourite)
Top right : Cabbage Kimchi
Bottom Left : Lotus Root in soy sauce
Bottom Right : Spicy Anchovies

How to eat all those?
Being a single and live alone.
Most of the time I am busy working and don't even have time to cook good healthy food.
I will end up cook instant noodles.
Not good for health right?

With all this banchan stock up in fridge weekly. 
I just need to cook brown rice.
Boiled kimchi soup or soy bean past soup, then take out all this dishes and eat it with hot rice and soup.
Before hook to korean cuisine , I totally skip veggies.
But after start favor on Korean cuisine...my choice of food more towards veggies and grains.

Totally my style!

Tomorrow going for my first class....so nervous breakdown to meet new people.

THE JOURNEY

Tuesday, March 18, 2014 0 Comments
Have you watch 'The Journey'?
If you have not watch...make your way to nearest cinema.
You won't regret.
This is Malaysia Chinese Movie film directed by Chiu Keng Guan.
From the opening to the end, the movie will make you feel happy, warmth, touching your heart.
You will see the Chinese Culture meet with West.
It just a simple story line but yet meaningful in reality of life.
All the Actors and Actress really did their best with own characters.

Just go and watch and you know what I mean.

Somebody like me are very difficult to open my heart to Malaysian made movies.
The Journey is the first Malaysia Made movie I watch after almost 20 years.

The Journey won my heart....4 1/2 stars!

Chiu Keng Guan, DAEBAK!!!!!
Bring on...I am waiting for more good movie from you.

CHINGGU BIRTHDAY

Monday, March 17, 2014 1 Comments
Chinggu Birthday was on 8 Mar aka Women's Day too.
I have the advantage here...hehehehe...
His celebration was mine too...muakkss..

We decided for the first time to step in Tony Roma's.
Yeah! I admit that both of us are very thrifty to spend too luxurious food especially when their specialty is meat. Yup! those slaughtered one..

We both had that lamb ribs, appertiser platter and seriously...both have toothache after that.
Yup! that meat thing stuck on our tooth...so painful and worst both have to wait till reach home for flossing...Oh my....
Both repent and decided this will be the first and the last since both feel total ripped off with that ribs we ate.
We both keep consoling ourselves...at least we tried this before we die.WTH!

What a birthday without a cakes right?
Chinggu gave me the privilege and trusted me with the cakes selection.
hahahahaha...bad decision Chinggu!
My greedy and over creative part of me end up selected Tofu Cheese Cake and Wasabi Avocado Cake at Komugi.
Chinggu ate with frowning on his face and me ate one bite each and the rest of it....
hahahaha...both of us keep arguing on who should finish that overly creative cakes.

That is how two middle age people celebrate birthday...getting old and fighting all the time.

Today is Monday and my appointment with my dentist will be this evening.
Seriously....can't eat meat anymore.
I tried though!
but too painful for my tooth and stomach too!

Monday, March 10, 2014 0 Comments
Sad Saturday morning news to all Malaysian and whole world too.
Nobody expect what happen next....

Appreciate your love ones when they are with you...
Be thankful you are still alive living your routine life.

What happen to MH370 is still mystery until now.....
Whatever it is , I believe the related parties are doing the best they can to unlock on what happen to MH370.

To all the relatives and friend please be strong and be prepared to expect the worst outcome.
All we could do now is to pray for the less suffering to the effected ONE!

For those whose their life is not affected , please don't make useless conclusion and add to pain.
Just follow closely and quietly...don't criticize too much and make on assumption.Leave it to the expert!

May God Bless MH370 and hope for some light to unlock the mystery!
