The ddeok mandu guk (ricecake + dumpling soup) I made turned out TERRIBLE. I threw a tantrum because I was so disappointed in my efforts, but I followed the recipe.. WHYYYY It seems I'm not as good as cooking as I thought I would be :(
Here are some of our meals:
kimbap made by david's mum
shitty ddeok mandu guk, lamb and fried rice prepared by mum LOL
pancakes made by sis and james.. yum
pasta, quiche, lamb and sausages, broccoli
broccoli, wonton+dumplings, rice noodles

David was an awesome boyfriend and took me to work every day that my parents weren't here. He also has had to work at my work more than usual because the optom is on holiday. On Friday we were even able to have lunch together! We ate at Cafe Baguette, which is a French cafe close to the work place. I got some Angus Beef baguette thing and he got some salami one. Angus beef one was so yummy!!

For dinner after work we decided to go to Shou Sumiyaki! One of my FAVOURITE restaurants. I was a bit hesitant to go because it's quite expensive and last time it was a bit disappointing, but I did sort of feel like it so YOLO. This time instead of just going for the $129 couple set we decided to order individual dishes. It was so fucking good!!!! Seriously, eughhh so good. Only bad thing is that we took a bit too long to eat the meat so it got quite salty towards the end LOL
- Salmon sashimi
- Wagyu beef tataki salad
- Kaki fried: deep fried oyster
- Kani korroke: deep fried crab cream
- Premium wagyu Kobe M10 scotch
- Wagyu oyster blade
- Wagyu scotch chuck roll
Most of the 'entree' dishes were the ones that come with the 'couple set' but I wanted them anyway so we ordered it hahahah. The meat this time was so good.. the kobe scotch MELTS IN YOUR MOUTH!!! SO GOOOODDDD. I would probably recommend everything except the kani korroke, but that isn't bad either.
It's okay to splurge once in a while on food HAHAAHA Shou Sumiyaki did let us down last time, but this time.. I just cry because it was so delicious!! Can't wait to come back to this next time, but probably not any time soon because the meal was like $150 LEWL But we were overly food.. probably don't need so many entrees and maybe 2 different meats is enough LOL

David worked at Specsavers again! Too bad I got sent over to the other store and could not see him much, but we did go out for dinner with our friends, finally we got to try ABC Chicken! Work people had been talking about this for ages, and I never really liked chicken that much.. mostly because a lot of the time fried chicken is just bones (i.e. Hudadak.. I would not recommend that place).
Anyway, ABC Chicken was so goodddd because we got 2 boneless dishes (I hate bones), and even the one dish which wasn't boneless.. it was so good and meat came off the bone so easily. The meat was so soft and tender and wasn't dry.. I CANNOT PRAISE IT ENOUGH! Can't wait to go back there hehhehe. Only dish that wasn't that great was the seafood pancake.. so thick and floury.. my favourite pancakes are still at Joomak!
I think that this place has really changed my perspective on Korean fried chicken HAHAHAHA before, I was always like: nahhh, I don't really like K-chicken that much, but now.. I'm like *v* droool when I think about it HAHAHHA
I even told David beforehand that he had to sit next to me so he could eat the meat off the bones (usually I just eat the skin and meat which are easy to eat and I leave like the meat near the bones LOLLOL), but there wasn't even anything left on the bones (not that we even had many bone dishes in the first place HAHHA)
- Seafood pancake
- Sweet chilli chicken (with cheese $2)
- Carbonara chicken
- Half soy garlic chicken
- 3L of beer
After that hung out at Pua's house. I rolled my whole dirty body over his bed LMFAO and fell asleep. But then I woke up and we talked about some stuff then before we knew it was 2AM. Can't wait to see my friends again! :)
