Of Random Thing #222

Another post in less than 24 hours, that must be achievement since I haven’t been blogging for a long time. If you used to follow my blog before this space went on a hiatus, you may have noticed that I do watch Mainland drama series from time to time.

Go Go Squid

Jia highly recommended this Mainland drama series on her Instagram story. I transferred the first 20 episodes of this drama series into my iPad before my trip to London and I was hooked! If you needed something funny to laugh on, I would highly recommend this drama series.

My Girlfriend is an Alien

This is another Mainland drama series which Jia highly recommended too! I haven’t gotten round to watch this as I am still downloading the entire series. I do think that Jia has a knack of drama recommendation. Maybe you should consider setting up an IG account just for this? LOL!

OMG! It had been four months since I updated this little space of mine! Lots had happened in within these four months. My laptop broke down couple of months ago. It was sent back for repair in Singapore and I was computer-less for nearly a month. A kind friend was nice enough to bring in to the repair center and brought it back for me.

I went on a short Europe trip with Sister last month, came back with a sprained ankle and lost a wallet. Not much valuables were gone missing but identities which I managed to get them replaced shortly after I came home.

Nothing much exciting happened after I came home to my boring work, eat and sleep routine. Met up with some foodies and had a few foodies’ gathering in the process. We are even planning a cross bordering trip to Miri for some serious food hunting next month!

Anyways, I had been downloading quite a bit over these few months and watched a fair share too!

*blowing dust off surface*

Aloha! It had been more than a month since I last wrote anything on this personal space. I haven’t been writing much aside from the occasional post on my other co-sharing blog which I shall reveal when the time deems fit. In the mean time, I shall remain discreet about it in spite that some who knew me in person had known about it.

I had intended to blog about a mini foodie meet up which I had with @wandergirleats, @igcomesfirst and @venturingfoodie last Friday evening. Sadly speaking, my memory card broke down on me and I lost all the pictures! Lesson learnt, I should save them into my computer as soon as I could to avoid it from happening again.

Guess what? My less than one year old notebook almost crashed the other day. It took ages to boot and we found out that my D drive had corrupted. I had to send it back to Singapore for a hardware replacement because I did not purchase an international warranty. Another lesson learnt, remember to purchase international warranty if you are buying expensive gadget outside your residing country.

Anyways, enough of rant! Let us get today’s business rollin’.

As usual, this post is a write up of the drama series which I had been downloading recently. Despite I had been downloading quite a bit, I am more of a YouTube watcher recently. I love watching daily vlogs and especially the ones that involve meal preparation (I don’t do meal preparation though). LOL!

The website which I had been using to download Mainland series no longer updates. I had been looking for other links which allow me to download high quality Mainland series. I found two but seeds are slightly limited and the quality wasn’t as good compared to the ones I had before. Have you got any other websites to recommend?

22042019 / Kofe Bar

Kofe Bar, nestled inside HIVE Boutique is a locally owned cafe. The cafe has been around for a while and it was only recently I frequent them more. I had been to Kofe Bar some time last time and I had their Signature Iced Coffee. I must say that I only felt neutral about it? Perhaps cheese with coffee didn’t work out for me?

I was out running errands yesterday afternoon. The weather was freaking HOT and I was desperately in need of something COLD. Texted San Diann and he recommended me Choc Avocado Coffee from Kofe Bar. I was skeptical at first. Avocado with coffee, who doesn’t? Or was it only me? LOL!

Choc Avocado Coffee | B$5.70

As I don’t intend to sit back and relax, I requested my coffee for the go. I believe the drink looked so much better in this transparent plastic cup than their usual glass mason cup. Don’t you agree with me? Choc Avocado Coffee was served with iced shaken espresso and milk, topped with a heaping tablespoonful of their very own avocado crema and chocolate swirls on the side up of the cup.

This was how the avocado crema looked like in the drink. It was dusted with some cocoa powder. So, how does avocado with coffee taste like, you may ask? I must say that I was pleasantly surprised that both of them worked wonder together. I loved the texture of the coffee. It was smooth and tasted creamy at the same time.

Sugar level can be adjusted by further reducing the amount of avocado crema. And boy, I was glad that I didn’t request for less. The avocado crema was delicious. It wasn’t overpowering and it blended with the coffee just nice.

16042019 / Padi-Mas Restaurant

Having consumed quite a bit of wheat contained food last week, I was feeling bloated! Sister told me to eat as much yogurt as possible for my body to build up gut to break up the wheat. I could not find the type of yogurt that I like so I Google-d for other sources of probiotics. I was happy to know that Kimchi is a good source of probiotics too!

Without second thought and hesitation, I Whatsapp texted San Diann if he’s interested in joining me for a Kimchi Jigae dinner. It took him longer than usual to reply but he agreed and we invited King too! San Diann gave us heads up that he would be late so I placed all food orders and he arrived just in time when the food were served.

Kimchi Jigae with Rice | B$8.00

My main agenda for dinner that night – eat as much Kimchi as I could. LOL! Kimchi Jigae, also known as Kimchi Stew, served with a good amount of their homemade preserved Kimchi, sliced tofu, needle mushroom, pork belly and garnished with leeks. Red rice was served separately in a small metal bowl.

This is by far the most legit tasting Kimchi Jigae that I had in a while. I had some before and none was as good as this. It tasted salty (for me) and sour. If you have a low threshold for spicy food, fret not! My friend who has a low spicy threshold claimed that it was not spicy at all. This portion can feed three persons just nice.

Samgyopsal | B$13.00

Jumullock | B$13.90

Padi-Mas is the only non-Halal Korean restaurant in the Sultanate and they serve Korean BBQ! Of course, we wouldn’t give them a miss and ordered a small portion of Samgyopsal and Jumullock. We were served with lettuces and condiments like sliced green chilies, garlic and sauces.

You have the option of cooking the meat yourself or served cooked on a sizzle pan. I wasn’t keen of cooking and requested them to be served cooked. The three of us left the restaurant with BBQ smell staining our hair and clothing. I wouldn’t imagine if we had done the cooking ourselves!

Samgyopsal is regular pork belly while Jumullock is marinated pork belly. Jumullock was reddish in color, presumably marinated with red pepper or Gochujang paste. In spite of the color, it wasn’t as spicy as it looked. San Diann and I preferred Jumullock over Samgyopsal as the former had more fatty parts while the latter were leaner. My favorite way of eating them is placing a slice of both Samgyopsal and Jumullock with Kimchi on a lettuce!
