It’s fried tofu skins stuffed w/ seasoned rice (유부초밥) and decorated w/ seaweed and cheese. The cups in the fruit side are filled w/ dried seasoned radish (무말랭이) i didn’t have square fried tofu skins, so i had to make do w/ triangle skins, but argh, the hypotenuses don’t all go the same way or at least i should have thought to make the one that is off the middle one. The protein in this is also a little lacking (only the fried tofu skins), I thought about adding some chicken, but I didn’t have space in the end to put it around the rice. Maybe I should have done a little less fruit and filled that space w/ a boiled egg. I don’t particularly like the lighting, but I ended up bringing ingredients to school and making it in the school cafeteria because i fell asleep last night and didn’t have time this morning. oh well oh well.
Mini candy donuts http://youtu.be/YNlE4LIDO8A We made ittttt. After like 6 months of saying that we’d make this we finally did it. Molding and decorating meticulously was quite fun. The most difficult thing was to take out the individual sprinkle balls.
The pink one on the right was inspired by the Simpsons.
I did Luigi from memory and thus I messed up his mustache… And also his giant proboscis…. Maybe i could have done the Luigi death stare that he now has in the latest Mario kart, but the brows and the pupillary position isn’t quite right. The most time consuming thing of this was not Luigi but rather the mushroom and “red shell.” My apple skinning skills need a level up.
And main reason for Luigi = I had avocado.
If you care to listen, this is Psy’s new single, hangover. I can’t say that it’s catchy or all that musically appealing (I would not put this on my playlist), but the composition of the song and mv is fascinating to me. Psy is so very Korean. Even though the song is co-released in both the US and Korea, pretty much the only thing that is American is Snoop and the English lyrics. Culturally, it is so Korean.This reddit post explains the various locations and what they do, but what I thought was most interesting is how he incorporates Korean folk music—the clanging cymbals, gongs, drums, and oboe sounding thing that one hears during the hook and latter half of the prehook. Such music was played at working class (farmers) celebrations and was a way for the farmers to let loose during holidays such as pre/post sowing and harvest festivals. Nowadays, drinking is the let-loose-after-work—the modern day celebration of the working class (salary men). After work, bosses and coworkers will head down to bars and drink. And since it’s rude to decline invitations and drinks, drinking is an integral part of work life. Playing traditional Korean folk music while showing salary men getting drunk and contrasting the electropop with the folk music invokes the parallelism old and new working class relaxing and celebrating after a hard day/season’s work It is an interesting, yet cacophonous blend of cultures.
I made lunch for tomorrow. I’ve done a panda before, but w/e I wanted something cute yet not time consuming. so voila. (btw, ruiji, it’s not a sad panda.) Also, these cherries are delicious. Is it cherry season?
I’m a D2 already… Our “summer break” was only a week long. I’m not bitter at all….But the semester has hit the ground running. I was so busy last week that I had only 1 meal a day (dinner) ‘cept Fri in which i had an extra snack of pizza rolls. D: so so sad. I didn’t think I would stay at school so long beyond the scheduled class time having to work on random things. Also this waking up at 6:30 is just no good for me. I was so tired that whole week. But one plus is that my new denture patient is a very cheerful pleasant guy. Anyway, hopefully this week isn’t as tiring as last week was. nyam nyam
