Cheating with Diet Plan and Buying Instant Meal

The other night my husband feel bored of eating the same food again and again from his diet plan so he asked me to buy him an instant meal and dumplings at the nearby convenience store but as usual I went out buying another food more than what is asked to me. I bought cheese dog because I have thought my husband will like it as a few weeks ago we are craving for cheese dogs, I also bought onion rings for myself while the soft drink in is a freebie from the meal.

GS25 Meal

My husband didn’t eat the cheese dog because he thought I bought it for myself, so I’ve eaten it the next day as well the onion rings.

Korean Street Food: Tteokbokki

There are times I am curious to food here in Korea, so the other day after shopping, when I passed along the student canteens across the elementary school, I return a little bit and decided to step in one canteen/food store and ordered a cup of Tteokbokki. Oh well I did great because I was able to pay the right amount, haha!

Tteokbokki, also known as Ddeokbokki is a popular Korean snack food which is commonly purchased from street vendors or Pojangmacha. Originally it was called tteok jjim and was a braised dish of sliced rice cake, meat, eggs, and seasoning. Tteok jjim an early variant of modern tteokbokki, was once a part of Korean royal court cuisine. This type of tteokbokki was made by boiling tteok, meat, vegetables, eggs, and seasonings in water, and then serving it topped with ginkgo nuts and walnuts. In its original form, tteokbokki, which was then known as gungjung tteokbokki, was a dish served in the royal court and regarded as a representative example of haute cuisine.

Korean Street Food: Sweet Corn

I am not active in blogosphere lately,  sort of busy and I have nothing to post, the ironic thing is when I am out of blogging world I have so many ideas on my mind to blog but once I log-in and plan to blog, nothing is left. Either I am empty on idea or it feels like it is worthless to share or to blog.

Jezz, few days ago I am craving for corn because it was a long time ago since I ate corn. I am craving because I always see corn in the food place near the gym so one day I bought  one packed for 3,000 won about 3 dollars maybe, imagine how expensive is it, in Philippines I can buy a bunch of corn with that money but the fact I am not in the Philippines  I have to eat the corn to the fullest..Haha!

Triangle Gimbap for Dinner

It just come to the point that I am sick of eating eggs and spam, its been my food since the last two days, so tonight I want  a change, I went to Family Mart to look for an instant meal but what is left is meatballs, I hate to say this but meatballs makes me sick as well, so the last resort is to buy gimbap to feed my hungry stomach and this is my dinner for tonight.

Hopefully I am not going to be hungry again in the middle of the night because I am also sick of of frying eggs and eating big serving of rice as if I am not going to sleep, two hours after 12 in the morning. Just wrapped these with gim (sea weed) and ready to eat. Yum!

Gimbap in Triangle Shape

Here’s a tray of my treats few weeks ago, gimbap and some chocolates. You know some of the gimbaps are spicy so I really need some sweets after eating a spicy one, I can’t tell what’s the flavor not until I open it because I can’t read Hangul. I love to eat gimbap today but when we visit Family Mart,  nothing has left maybe it is all sold out.

The flavor or other term varies to tuna, bugolgi, bugolgi hot and spicy, meat with kimchi, and many more.
