I love my instant noodles till death. Who doesn’t?

家常便饭 – 猪肉焖马铃薯 (Potato & Meat Stew)

The second week of school and work is finally over. It was kind of crazy, and I almost fell sick running (or rather, cycling) all around the central parts of Singapore. But all in all, I’m so glad that things went well, and the boy enjoyed his school and student care a lot, and he seems to be learning well and making friends in class as well. Hopefully, Covid constraints do not penalise these children too much and take away too much of what they deserve to have and experience as part of school life; hopefully we do not take any more steps back to how it used to be one or two years ago.

Naengmyeon 냉면 (Korean Cold Noodles)

Naengmyeon, or cold noodles, is a very classic Korean dish that one can easily find when one goes to Korea; a dish that one repeatedly sees being featured on Korean dramas and variety shows too. It supposedly originated from Pyongyang, North Korea, and became popular and common in the southern part as well. This dish is prepared with freshly pickled ingredients, buckwheat noodles and a light-tasting, icy cold broth cooked over time with beef and basic stock ingredients. It’s lovely to have this dish in summer to cool the body down, though interestingly, it may be best to eat this dish during winter because buckwheat, being harvested in autumn, is supposed to taste its best during the winter season.
