kimchi

i finally get hold of "The Catcher in The Rye". after about 20 pages, i almost vomited of raw and straightforwardness of phrases. which is very refreshing (but, at the same time dizzying). i need to have a break. i'll catch on later on the Catcher...

made my first batch of Kimchi last night. i tried to get common chili flakes, but got Paprika instead, so, the greens look real red. and i cheated by adding rice vinegar. i love it sour (the lactic acid from the fermentation will make it sour, but i want extra). (i hope, it'll work). 48 hours to go!

ya. i should be writing about Cha Gio, Nuoc Cham, Pho... (and i will... ooo.. when?)

*************************************************************************
the "catcher in the rye" = very good. (2 days me in melancholic mood ~ according to mimi)- i didnt even realized the effect! duh!

the kimchi = not so good. after standing in room temperature for 52 hours. the acids more than my own liking. (next batch~ i'll add on a bit of binagongan, substitute for fish sauce. hahahha)

we'll try out a Vietnamese restaurant in KK next week. i have two in my list. (maybe, i'll eventually start writing of Cha Gio, Nuoc Cham, Pho.. etc.) iyalah..

Dy,
sorta kimchi. but it turned pretty good. too sour for my own liking tho... maybe next time, no vinegar added. and the paprika's hot!
