1 OCT 2009: Went for Korean dinner with friends few days back at Seoul Garden in Kuchai Lama. Ordered some BBQ stuff and some Korean famous dishes as usual, and the food was pretty OK la. However, the restaurant was empty most of the time except us and 2 more tables for the whole night. I couldn’t help but wondered how could they survive with such a bad business. Perhaps it was weekday though.

Anyway, the weirdo me isn’t a big fan of Korean food. But what I like most are those small and colourful side dishes. Love the kim chi, pan cake and anchovies.

How much do you like Korean food? And what do you like most?



And today is my niece’s 2nd birthday. I’m thinking to put on a small celebration for her. Perhaps a simple KFC meal with a ladybird cake from Secret Recipe.

SK: I think the BBQ is kinda ordinary lo. The side dishes are yummy though. Too rush to buy her anything now, maybe will drop by Jusco after work to look for a little doll.

An Yeong Ha Say Yo!
You go take a look at Seoul-Korea Restaurant in Taman Desa. Diners have to queue up every night for tables! The price is cheap and the food is good. The feng shui is also good of course. Wanna treat me, anytime! Kamcha Hamida in advance!
