New term: shabu shabu - the sound of thin slices of beef swishing in hot broth
Was at Waraku with Na yesterday..
Na: Put those difficult to cook stuff first..
mf: This is hard.. *poke poke* Radish? .. What is this?
Ok, put them in.. 5min later, our radish looked swollen.. I took one. Didn't feel like a radish.. Turned out to be a rice cake *.*
Word du jour: nira - Japanese for leek
I stupidly put udon in my mouth right after taking it out of the soup. Couldn't close my mouth. Soup dripped out.. Then, I spit out some food cos it was too hot.. Was it the same incident? Can't remember.. :p
The soup turned so thick that when I mixed it with some green tea (:p) the taste of the latter was totally eliminated by the soup. Think we OD on sodium..
Dessert included frozen strawberries and a ball of choco gelato. Cut gelato into wedges and stuck one into mouth - brain freeze *.* Na dumped one strawberry in her mouth and tried to show me the condensation.. My turn to eat strawberry whole..and I spit it out - too cold and I couldn't bite into the round thing!
So poor Na had to watch me spit food twice - yeeks :p Nvm, get used to it if we're going to share a place! Oh, we'll get the necessary pots etc to do our own shabu set :)
Amid all the funny incidents with food, we had a really nice chat. Ohisashiburi ne! :) Think the last few times we met, we were either at some nightspot or with the rest of KLK - difficult to talk.. We should chill like this more often.. Eh, you move to Tomato Town la! :p
Met Siok this am to pass her guide book on central Europe. Heard a shocking news that she has been posted to another division! So sudden =( Hey, have a good trip and see you in a month's time!
