sujaebi megitang

We went to aunt's house. On the way to her house, we saw again the sign board of a restaurant serving Sujaebi Maegitang (Boiled Spicy Catfish). This is the restaurant that I have mentioned here last time. The restaurant is located in the farm, about three kilometers away from the highway.

The megitang is delicious but the restaurant is not famous because of its location. But once you've tasted it, you will crave for it and come back. Here's the restaurant which is too old.

The restaurant is built on the pond with lots of gold fish. There's some plastic floor where you can see the gold fish even when you are inside. The restaurant is also decorated with antique. Too old stuffs that Koreans used long time ago.

It is in Boseong which is famous for green tea so here's the green tea puchinggae.

And the delicious sujebi megitang.

Fried Octopus Legs

Octopus legs are what hubby's new favorite snacks. He started to like them when went on a trip and he had to drive until late at night. In order not to be sleepy, we dropped by at the rest area and bought coffee and octopus legs. They are delicious but too hard which is hard to bite and ches if you don't have strong gums and teeth. Hubby said it was his first time to eat octopus legs and he likes them. Since then, he started to crave for octopus legs when he's bored or when we watch a movie at home.

Here's what he usually buys. It's not as delicious as what we have eaten for the first time but it's not also bad. This leg is uncooked so we had to fried first before we eat.

Hubby cut them and fried. It's delicious but I felt tired after eating some. They are better and more delicious than chewing gum but have strange smell. It's not advisable to eat them outside. hehe...

Network cables

We didn't go out today. We stayed home all day long watching tv, lying down and using the computer. I can't imagine life living without any tv, computer or telephone at home. I've just thought about it because our computer didn't work well.

It's too annoying when you use the internet and then it suddenly disconnected. I always complained about this and I sometimes told hubby to call the technician to check it out. I sometimes do everything that they taught us when we are having trouble with the connection but it's still the same so the technician came over to my house and found out that there's a problem with the cable. It may also be the reason why the connection is very slow. I need to get Network Cables for fast, broadband surfing.

I already found low priced with high quality Cables. My hubby also like to get one because he can play with his Xbox or play station onto the internet for online multiplayer action. The internet cables are guaranteed and hassle free. We can even save over 50%. You may also want to check them if you need one.

Persimmon trees

We went on a camp. On our way to the camping site, we saw lots of persimmon trees.

I told hubby to stop the car and pick some persimmons. He refused at first but after bothering him for many times, I finally convinced him. Nobody owns the trees because they were planted on the roads near the mountains. It was another memorable experience for me. I had fun picking some persimmons and at the same time felt nervous. Although they were planted on the roads and I believed that nobody planted them, I was nervous to get something that aren't mine. I always looked if there were people or cars coming. I was like a thief. hahaha... Hubby tasted one then he told me to throw them away. hohohoho... They are still green and we need to wait more days.

These heart-shaped persimmons are eaten even when they are hard. They are delicious when they are red and a little bit soft but don't eat too much or else you'll suffer of constipation. hehehe...

I didn't bring those persimmons at home and now i'm suddenly craving one while posting this.

Strawberry milk for my breasts

Do you remember my post here? The next day I bought strawberry milk. I dunno if there's connection with my monthly period but everytime I drink some strawberry milk, i felt that my breast were getting big. Or maybe that's just my imagination, so I felt they really were.

I asked hubby if he knew why I bought strawberry milk. He said because I just wanted to drink milk. He laughed at me when I said the real reason of buying them. I said I saw on tv that strawberry milk can help enhance our breast. After drinking these 3 cartons of milk, I don't know if I still need to buy because I'm afraid that instead of getting my breast big, my body will get big. hehe...

Hmmmm...anyway, it's good for our health although it can't make my breasts big, at least I can stay fit. What do you think?

Have you ever tried the Himalayan Goji Juice?

We love food! We love delicious and healthy food! I also like trying different kinds of food. Whenever I go camping and see some trees with fruits that aren't familiar to me in the forest, I always want to try some. If hubby wasn't with me, I already did. What wonders me more are these Tibetan goji berries. They are similar to dried jujubes but look sweeter and more delicious than them. I'm really curious about the taste but I found out that they are berries that has been used in eastern medicine for a hundreds of years, or maybe even thousands of years.

How I wish I can also have a taste of this Himalayan goji juice. Sounds really interesting to me because i've been longing to visit Himalayas and trying the juice is the first thing that i'd like to do when I visit there. I heard that the dried fruits are also great in making tea. And here's another good news! You don't have to go to the himalayan goji juice distributor just to buy the products. Click here if you want to know more about the products and how you can purchase it for a cheaper price.

Oh well, i'm dreaming now! I'd like to have either the juice or tea right now!

Melamin (Melamine)

Because of Melamin (Melamine) that were found to be added to watered-down milk to boost its apparent protein content, many food companies specially China use this chemical. In China, the compromised dairy products are blamed for sickening 54,000 children.

Since I knew about this melamine I'm now very careful in buying some food products. I always look at the ingredients and aware of this made in China that is found on food which takes me longer time to stay in the market when I shop for food.

Melamine is described as being "Harmful if swallowed, inhaled or absorbed through the skin. Chronic exposure may cause cancer or reproductive damage. Eye, skin and respiratory irritant.”

And now to make sure that we buy healthy products specially children, they are now going to put green stamp for every safe snacks. I salute this idea! Thumbs Up!

Simple cooking and preparing food on a camp

Hubby told me not to prepare and bring many things. He said it's very complicated to carry lots of things specially side dishes. So like we did before we also planned to have chicken for lunch. But we had a hard time finding chicken restaurant in the rural area specially on the way to the Recreation forest. We found some but those are chicken and pizza house and hubby doesn't like them because chicken is not delicious in the pizza house. We are looking for a franchise chicken restaurant. We changed the route and went to the downtown area and there we found one. The Ttore Ore chicken.

We were hungry so before we set up the tent, we had lunch first. Here's what we had for lunch. Chicken and kimbap.

For dinner, we just boiled some water inside the tent because it was too cold outside and we ate kimbap again and "wang ttukong" cup noodles. The day has gone with this very simple cooking and preparing time. hehehe...
