Autumn weekend

autumn leaves

It’s been a nice autumn weekend. Not too cold, not too hot. Perfect for an outdoor date, but I wouldn’t know anything about that!!

 

autumn patbingsu

Staff members were supposed to go on a hike up the local mountain. But my group decided we weren’t feeling sporty, and decided to take a detour. We only took a little walk around the park at the base of the mountain … but only after we had patbingsu!

Patbingsu at a chain called Sulbing (tagline: “a Korean dessert place”). In the far left of the photo is a bowl of pumpkin soup, and some little rice cakes. And then the centerpiece is, of course, patbingsu. It has pieces of cheesecake, AND powdered cheesecake! The little shotglass has condensed milk in it, for the patbingsu. And the three cylinders are cheese-filled rice cakes, topped with cheese and (I think) scallions.

 

kalbi

Kalbi (bbq beef) staff dinner. So good. Really tender meat. The other barbecues I’ve had have been tough, in comparison. I guess I’ve been going to cheap places hahahaha.

Also, the garlic+sesame oil in the little bowl is great. Have to be careful, though. Eating it immediately = boiling hot garlic paste sticking to your teeth.

 

interstellar

Went and saw Interstellar. Great movie, shit characters. According to them, love is a valid reason for space mission decisions, on the same level as math/physics calculations? Hell no! In the zombie apocalypse, they would be the first to go. (But maybe I’m just really cold-hearted and calculating.)
