hey hey girlies!

i’m soooo excited that this weekend is finally here! my mommy is coming back from korea! is it horrible that i’m most excited about seeing what she brought back for me? 😀

i was already informed that there are no clothes for me cus apparently everything they sell in the street markets come in one size which i’m assuming is extra extra teeny tiny small 😦 i’m planning on going to korea in the fall and i’m crazy scared. my people are so judgmental yo! at least this is totally motivating me to go to the gym everyday even though i am SOO sore! (i really need to learn how to properly stretch before exercising) 😦

ANYWAY.

i actually took pics of my meals today. well. not everything i ate. but it’s an improvement!

in the morning, i had a couple bites of taro soup before going to the gym. and then afterwards i found myself stopping (arghh!) at a tea shop where i got a passion fruit kumquat green tea with boba.

🙂

what a lame picture. you’ll have to trust me that kumquat green tea is super yummy! and the boba was soft and chewy and wonderful like it always is in the teashops in cali!

when i got home, i had a bagel with PB and blueberries! organic blueberries at H-mart are $.88 right now! stock up!

isn’t melty peanut butter so sexy? mmmm!and then for dinner, i had every non-korean’s favorite korean dish! bibimbap! i can’t tell you how many times someone has said…OH MY GOSH! you’re korean? i LOOOVE bibimbop! which i think is a hilarious…especially since

*confession* i don’t even like bibimbap! the name basically translates to mixed rice…and i’m not huge on rice to begin with…and i prefer to eat everything separately!

anyhow, i thought this meal would make a good picture so i ate it! plus, it’s probably healthier than anything else i would have chosen. i’m such a dedicated blogger!

so what we have is brown rice surrounded by zucchini, carrot, radish, tofu, some kinda sprouty veg, bulgogi (bbq beef), and bean sprouts. and a blob of red pepper paste.

isn’t it pretty?

then you mix it alll together until it looks like this:

except a “real” korean person woulda used like 5 bajillion times more red pepper paste than me and their rice would be RED. but i don’t like the paste…which is another reason why i don’t like bibimbap all that much 😛

well, there you have it! i updated 3 days in a row guys! GO ME! i will stop with the rambling posts soon once i’m settled into regular blogging again. i promise. thank you soo much to you girls who didn’t forget me!

    i totally know what you mean about Korean people and judgmental. I really want to take my boyfriend there to meet my family, but I’m not exactly the slimmest person. 😦 It just makes you feel so self-conscious!!
