Tag Archives: Korean BBQ

Back to School..

Few months ago, I decided to do my degree.

It’s a challenge to work full time and study part-time.

Quite often, I find myself asking.. “Where did the time go?”

Sleeping in and watching animae/reality tv are luxuries now.. 🙂

This evening, I’m taking a well deserved break, cos I had an assessment yesterday.

After assessment, Blueberry and I went to Johor Bahru for shopping.

We had korean barbarque to celebrate.

(I knew I passed, but I wasn’t sure if I did well).

Bornga, City Square, JB

While waiting for our dinner… The paper place-mats to frame the utensils, making the setting look neat and tidy. Do you like to read the words on the paper places?

Today, the results of the assessment were released.

I got 78/100! :O

WHAT!?!

It took me awhile to accept the good report. I teared when the reality sank in.

During poly days, skills assessments were my nemesis.. I lost count of the number of times I failed, and had to re-sit for assessments.. In 3 years of school, I only passed 3 assessments.

When I learnt there was a module requiring skill assessments, I felt chills down my spine.. Thankfully, a colleague turned friend also enrolled for the program, and her presence encouraged me to press on.

I’m glad to live to see this day.. It’s encouraging to see something positive replace those bad memories. God is good.

Blueberry said I got a B grade.

For lunch, I treated myself to a burger.. cos B is for burger. Hahaha.

After work, I swung by the supermarket and bought a bottle of beer.

.. B is for beer.. and we shall toast to our blessings.

The celebration continues. 🙂

There was a microbrewery near the hotel we stayed in.

.. We were so excited when we found out they served Korean BBQ too.

Beer + Korean BBQ = Let’s go there now!

Pints of beer on cold evening is always nice.

Smooth.. clean.. citrus notes.. crisply refreshing!

I wish I had more stomach space for beer. Heh.

Seeing our non-BBQ orders served, started to make me a little impatient .. where is our BBQ coming?

I hope it’s served before we get too full.. :p

Then, the moment I've been waiting for arrived.. The waitress came and put a pot of burning charcoal in center of the table.. This is a sign that the BBQ is about to be served!

Moments later, our beef platter came..

.. normally, we would have beef and pork for BBQ.

We decided to buck the trend and ordered everything beef.. (I was craving for beef BBQ that day).

No one shall stand between a woman and her cravings.

Grilling plate was placed over the charcoal.. and we started cooking..

The sizzling of the meat felt like music to the ears.

Happiness on a plate..

With the large amounts of food, our stomachs almost burst at the steams.

It was a good dinner overall.. I just hope we wouldn’t be overeating again soon. 🙂
