Who Am I?

My photo
It was back in 7th Aug 2002 that i first laid eyes on him. There was no 'turning back' since then. Through him i've learned so much, with him the world seems brighter and because of him i've found much more than love. Forever and always... Absolutely Bae Yong Joon ! 처음사랑 끝까지...

my new bowl of rice ^^

hehehe...

for whatever reason it may be or reasonsssss if there are...
ive started a new blog on korean food ^^

let's see why i did it..mmm.....
oh yeah bcos of some really nice korean lunch pack i saw last week



so i tot it may be nice if i collect/blog on the food...

i mean tho i may only post or repost recipe from evwhere, still i hv them kept in one place
esp when im such a lazy person i can just look thru my bloggy whenever i feel like doing K cooking ^^

i name it Yokee's Korean Rice Bowl ^^
if u know colloquail cantonese u'll ustand why i name it that way hahaha
and i like the way koreans say rice 'bap' (밥)

우리 밥 먹자 ! = wuri pam mokja ! = Let's eat !

since chuseok is just around the corner, i started with a recipe on songpyeon (송편) a traditional rice cake.

i personally prefer the gamja songpyeon (감자송편) which is most famous in the northern part of korea in kangwon-do. those gamja that yj had during his special diet was specially ordered from there too ^^

gamja means potato in korean.
ok...im not saying this bcos im korean crazy but really the korean gamja somehow taste better !
for those of u who hv been to korea n hv tasted the grilled potato sold along the street, u know im not lying rite?

so the next time u go korea...look for those hot n piping grilled potato...
taste especially best during cold days ! oh dear....my saliva~ :p

yongjoon....yongjoon nim....
its been quite a while that i din babble about him....
well...he's been quiet and sometimes being no news is good news....
the only 'news' we heard is that he's gonna work hard for the drama n will be spending time with his family during chuseok.

i was in seoul around this time last year...
many ppl were busy shopping for gifts to bring home for chuseok, from household stuff, food to clothing evthing is being packed nicely and beautifully.
so convenient...just buy and present.

u think he will be busy shopping too? ^^

since i was there at that time i did some chuseok chopping too n bought some really nice songpyeons.

hmm....i wonder if he also prefer the gamja songpyeon like i do too :p

i'll be having my own chuseok celebration with my family too tis weekend.
its gonna be homemade steamboat and im all ready with my kimchi and soju AND dried squids hehe...
happy chuseok evbody !! ^^

yokee said...

mmm...grilled potatoe. oh sounds awesome. another reason I should visit Korea, huh?

That lunch looked very good! Making me hungry!

Never did get to go this weekend to eat Korean so got promised to go this coming weekend. My mouth is watering! I am going to try some things you all suggested :)

yokee said...

hi mrs a...

make sure u go with an empty stomach so u can fill in more later cos there's soooooooooooooo many things to try ^^

have fun !

jaime said...

ummm yum yum yokee! A food blog?!You make me so 'mein mong', you can cook too? Did you make that lunch box? So beautiful and colourful, healthy too. It reminds me of Prince Yul making lunch for Cajun in Goong when they visited the Horticultural Center.

Oh so bap is rice, what about bibambap, so what does bibam mean?
Now I remember gamjatang easier knowing gamja is potato, so tang means soup, right? I love gamjatang and bibambap!

ok, pam mokja time!

bb said...

now at this point, i would like to warn all non-korean-speakers... be careful when ordering crab soup :p

coz... there's only a very slight difference [to my ears anyway] between crab and dog!!

mrs a said...

EEK...Thanks for the warning. I would want to come out of there barking about my experience, would I?

marissa said...

wow another blog to your list, so it's the 3rd right.

happy chuseok too!

jaime said...

woof woof! too late for me now, bb. good luck, mrs a.

yokee said...

hi jaime...

wah..u got me there. never cross my mind to find out what bibim actually means but according to the dict. it should mean the assorted vege that comes with the bap.

yep tang 탕 means soup which is the same in chinese. but normally the word guk 국 is used as in miyuk guk 미역국 (seaweed soup), mandu guk 만두국 (dumpling soup) etc...

oh tis is making me hungry..ok i got kimchi n ramyon n oh soju too hehe ^^

yokee said...

crab=ge
dog=gae

haha bb...hv u tried ordering them before?

maybe if i do next time i should also do the side walking action when saying the word ge just to be on the safe side..hahaha...

thanks for the reminder bb ^^

yokee said...

hi marissa...
