made the trip out to port moody despite the snowy conditions to meet up with a long time highschool friend. we had so much to catch up on; we started at a korean restaurant and migrated to a nearby cafe. she’s one of the few i keep very much contact with despite both of us living halfway across the globe. i cherish the friendship we’ve maintained throughout the years. it’s very ironic we both share some similar views and standpoint; no wonder we managed to chat for hours
it’s crazy to say that it’s my first time eating fried chicken since highschool. i normally refrain from fried foods; i made an exception today not only because it is the holiday week, but also because i’ve never tasted the korean fried chicken everyone boasts about. it tasted delicious as expected, and the crunchiness between my teeth was also to a high level of satisfaction. i don’t know when i’ll have it again, so i’ll savour every lasting flavour of the fried chicken dipped into the zesty sweet and sour sauce
today was a lot of learning from taekwondo to skating. i have a great learning opportunity to attend a seminar held by korean national team coach. the only hurdle is the grandmaster speaks and writes in korean. he has a wealth of knowledge to share; his teaching and training style is very different than the norm. although some of it is very deep and philosophical, it gives me a much better idea of how poomsae should be practice. i jetted immediately after to join the intermediate power skating class. the class is much faster paced; we did things i’ve never done before, but i was told i learn quickly
received my all korean mooto belt that i have been eyeing as my birthday present. the only condition is i have to keep up with the training up to and including nationals. i admit i have more belts than i need, but they’re all different and special in their own ways. this one will be highly prized and maintained mainly for competition purposes. it’s one of those things that needs to be kept in pristine condition and only worn at special events. i wonder how many i have left in me
korean market shows guide to buying the perfect steak just the way you like it. i never knew there were so many choices when it comes to shopping for some dinner. looking at the diagram makes it seem like a cow’s body part is even more complicated than that of a human’s. much more complicated than i thought when all i want is some red meat. how do you like your steak??
after having a single bowl of congee in 34 hours because of an upset stomach, here’s the all you can eat late night korean bbq to make up for the lack of appetite and food. the abundance of food felt like i suddenly went from third world country to first world country. i am sure its not the brightest idea in the world, but i will just go with the flow and see how much my body wants to absorb. so much meat…i haven’t had all you can eat for so long
