Kimchi Day!@The Lord’s Covenant Church fellowship outing

image

Korean food is becoming one of the most popular cuisines amongst Malaysians now and since we have two korean families at TLCC, what more could we ask for than to learn from true live experts themselves?

It’s kimchi day today!

The 3 lady iron chefs started cleaning, chopping the cabbages and marinating them. Tubfuls of cabbages!

image

The next station: tears of joy. Only brave eyes can withstand the onion effect as even those of us seated far away from this table were already tearing. These are surely kongpowpowerkick onions alright. Chop cho chop chop…the garlic, onions and spring onions.

image

Eldress Um (lady iron chef 1) said that this is….”the secret sauce.” For the pork. Ooooooooooooo…. tummy growling already.

image

Lady iron chef 1: showing us her kungfu slicing skills. We don’t want to mess with her when she’s with her knife. Seeing her slice those radish and onions was like watching a martial sword master displaying his skills.

image

Here comes the student. Attempting to overthrow his master’s title. We were frankly worried for his fingers seeing how sharp the knife was.

image

Then comes “coach 1”. Super good in coaching badminton and ping pong but never knew he had cooking in him too. He was giving the student some tips on slicing radish.

image

Now comes “coach 2”. This coach was the husband of lady iron chef 1. Accredited coach, so his tips mayyyyy be more reliable than coach 1.

All in all…this is a sight all women want to see. Men getting their hands on preparing a meal. Now they will appreciate their wives’ cooking even more.

image

The young”-er” ones, who rarely cook and eat out often, as expected ended up diverting away from kimchi class and went for pingpong instead.

image

The game got pretty intense with some killer smash stunts going on. Enough to convert this hardcore badminton players to table tennis? Hmmmmm…

image

The kids were also having their fair share of fun too! The pool has a water slide. It was so tempting for me to hop in!

image

After 4 hours, the kimchis were ready! I had never seen so much kimchis at one serving in my life. Freshly made. Tummies were growlinf already.

image

To help emphasize how much kimchis were made yesterday, this was just one of the tubs used and the tub is about 60-70cm in diameter.

image

image

Remember the secret sauce? They were used to stew them tender juicy pork until the meat fully absorbed in all the deliciousness. And I shamelessly ate easily 500g of it or more @_@. And…packed some back home too (shameless me!)

image

They cooked miso soup as well! Healthy, tofu, vegs, nutritious. Mmmmmm ๐Ÿ™‚

image

More kimchis. I believe we will all have good bowel movements tomorrow.

image

Elder Choi told me that this white carrot kimchi will strengthen me and I can increase my badminton smash power muahaha. I took a mountainful of it seconds after listening to his advice.

image

This was only round 1 for me. Round 2 coming right up!

image

It was an awesome fellowship time and we all had fun getting to know each other better, and even learnt a few new things about one another!

image

Ok. I confess I was a horrible student. Went for pingpong instead of being a good and hardworking woman to learn how to make kimchi..who knows maybe Sojisub will be my date in future! Here is the recipe! Guarantee any woman will win the heart of a Korean man with this!

image

Now….after a long and fruitful day….time to unwind with Memoro. 2 weeks off from alcohol. Each sip was memorable. I knocked off after 1 glass. More for me tonight then!

Carbohydrate binge@Free Mori, SS2 PJ

image

I was introduced to the delicious Free Mori bread slices from my close girlfriend, Anjoe in The Lord’s Covenant Church. However, there aren’t many outlets available around where I usually travel to hence I did not have a chance to visit the bakery on my own until I saw an outlet here after having spicy chilli pan mee at Jojo, SS2.

Honestly speaking, the feel of the bakery was fresh and vibrant and for some reason,ย  the way their pastries and bread are packed for sale or displayed gave a freshly baked feel to each item and attractive to the eyes also.

Obviously, I failed resisting from a carbohydrate binge, and ended up buying 2 types of bread for the night’s meal and for breakfast the day after.

image

This multi grain bread: with cranberry, sunflower seeds, sesame seeds looked amazing on the display and tasted amazing too! Full of flavours! They do cut your bread of choice into slices if it is of your preference. This is one of the best seller items for Free Mori.

The bread was soft, and nutritious! Filled with the natural sweetness and gave aย  nitty gritty bite from the seeds. Amazingly yummy. It is more worth to buy two of these (each piece was about RM 4.80) for the portion and the kind of service we were getting.

image

The cheese bread slices were less favorable compared to the multigrain but they did taste pretty alright. The chopped orange and yellow squares were actually the cheese.

The bread was a little too salty for me, but for those who enjoy savoury bread would find these delightful. The bread had a slight kick of spiciness as well, from the additions of the black pepper I suspect.

The bread was about RM4.80 as well. Quite worthy breads as each bread can yield about 6-7 slices and they are definitely a sure fire guarantee to keep you full.

I know I will be re-visiting this bakery soon to get hold of another multigrain bread! Yums!
