[CC cooks]: Life in meals 1

Procrastination is at its peak today...and everyday, in fact! ><! Anyway, as you all know, I love being in the kitchen. Whether it is baking, or cooking, I just love to let my creative juices flow! Sure, they may sometimes be really odd combinations, but they actually turn out to be quite tasty! Well, usually they do. Now, if only I actually wrote down what I did for them =.='

Since living away from home, I've had to prepare every single one of my meals. Sometimes it's tiring due to my schedule, but I always enjoy it because it means I get to eat what I want.

[Eating out]: The Gaya - Applecross

Just recently, I have added my blog onto Urbanspoon. In a sense, it was a way to get me to blog a bit more regularly (not sure where my logic comes from!). Anyway! I was pleasantly surprised to receive an invite through Urbanspoon from Leo, the owner of The Gaya in Applecross. 

Initially it was just a table for 4, but given how busy I will be in November, I figured it was a good chance to just treat this as my birthday dinner. Yes, it's very early and for the first time in 8 years, I won't be whipping up a birthday feast. Instead, I let The Gaya do that this year =P

[CC Cooks]: Vietnamese beef stew


Tuesdays are my exercise & dinner days with one of my good friends. I did tell you that I need to get fit for summer, didn't I? =P Well, after we both practically die from the workout, we seriously need some sustenance. We usually eat at my house, and we just buy things together to share the cost. 

What did we have this week? Vietnamese beef stew!

[Eating out]: Dae Jang Keum - Northbridge

With the warmer weather settling in, it's time for me to get my beach body! Haha, who am I kidding...I'm just embarrassingly unfit and want to get fit so I feel less guilty when I eat like a pig. Also because I want to train my long-distance running!

I met up with a close friend, GF, the other day for a short run at Langley Park then for dinner. He had never eaten Korean cuisine before and when he said he wanted to try it, I knew just the place to go!

[CC Cooks]: Happy Father's Day!

After being introduced to 8-flavour pork belly in Melbourne on his recent work trip (err back in August ><!), my Dad has taken a liking obsession to that. It's so odd because he rarely eats samgyupseol when we go for KBBQ! Anyway, we (the kids) were going to take him out for dinner on Father's Day this year, but Dad chose to have a bbq instead...in the rain =.='

Why a bbq? especially risking the wind and rain? Well, he wanted pork belly...so pork belly it was!
