Warehouse Sale Shopping

Image

 

I know It’s Black Friday but there aren’t really good deals around me. This Black Friday deal thing only came about here like 2-3 yrs ago and it’s only now gaining a bit more popularity around town. So instead of hitting the mall since I don’t have any targeted purchases I went to a warehouse sale that happens bi-annually and I picked out some new things to try and play with. Yay! I get to be all artsy with myself again.

Makeshift cooking: Cilantro and Almonds?

Image

“This is so ridiculously vegan” was the first thought that hit me when I found myself blending away roasted almonds, ginger, coconut milk and soy sauce together for this odd ball recipe. This is all very unique but at the same time “blegggh”.  I’ll think of is as a fun experiment but I don’t think I’ll be making this ever again. The cilantro looks pretty though…. I was suppose to use udon noodles for this but I had none. Maybe if I were to actually follow the complete instructions it wouldn’t have been so bad.

OMG OMG 2ne1!-그리워해요 (missing you)

Huge fan of 2ne1 since like way back in 2009. It always excites me when they have a new song/ MV. This new song is kinda surprising because I’m more used to there upbeat bad ass style. I like the intro but I don’t think this one is quite sinking in my head as much as their other songs.

[English  lyric translation ]

Dont be so comfortable like that
Because we’re still strangers
Don’t rush me like a child
Because it haven’t started yet
I dont like the youth’s love like playing with fire
I’m just shaking a bit, but I’m okay
No, the truth is
I still hate you, you who left me
My cold heart is still
Missing you
Missing you
Missing you
Missing you
Missing you
Don’t be so bright like that
Because the world is dark
How can I smile brightly (what?)
If you’ll look closely, I am sad
I know I’ve been there before
I dont like the calculative love of adults
I’m just tired but i’m okay
No, the truth is
I still hate you, you who left me
My cold heart is still
Missing you
Missing you
Missing you
Missing you
Missing you
The love of my young days is ending like this
You have to be happy
Even if a long time passes by, we’ll still remember each other
Those times when there was still “us”

This should have been posted like a billion months ago…what has it been doing in drafts T_T fails

The Break Away Japanese Kitchen: A skim

Last Night I decided to try out a few unique recipes from Eric Gower’s “The Break Away Japanese Kitchen”. A very unique fusion cook book. This book at first read sounds bizarre, almost all the recipes are combinations of food I would have never imagined together. I picked out two recipes t try last night and they were the Shiitake Ginger Pasta Salad with Raddicchio and Mashed Ginger Sweet Potatoes both of which came out really well. I like the fact that there’s pictures provided for each recipe so I know what the end result is suppose to look like and nothing was too wordy making it fairly easy to follow.
