because that is how ??? ??? is directly translated into, PURE Goroke. goroke, or gorokke or koroke, is actually Japanese. fried on the outside and something soft and yummy on the inside. it can be cheese, goguma (sweet potato), vegetables.. you name it. it is normally round and so super delicious. I can never get enough. for a fussy person on fried food, I personally love koroke because they are usually not too oily and it is fried to perfection.
(many tourists may thing that eating Japanese food in Korea is an utter waste of time and money but believe me, this is totally going to be worth it.)
??/??? ????? ?? ??? ??? ??? ?? ??? ? ?? ??? ?????!
say hi to Paul!!! my long time reader from Philippines whom I’ve met up with when I first came to Korea. yes I treat my readers well =D. but I am so sorry if I had recently neglected many of your emails and all because I am sitting for my finals NEXT WEEK RAWRR.
????? ? ?? ??? ??, ????~
we’ve actually ordered the oyster goroke first but at first we were only hungry and this shop was so eye catching we decided to stop by and have a bowl of fried oysters which was.. BLOODY DAMN AWESOME. never had anything like that before. I mean, in the history of goroke’s that I’ve ever eaten, these are the best I’ve ever had. the one shown above is the prawn koroke. absolutely fabulous. it is made so perfect I kept craving for more. so from just a simple lets have a snack idea, we had almost everything that was sold on this store. BECAUSE IT WAS THAT GOOD.
they also serve udon but since we were going for dinner so we thought meh… but because it was cold and he offered us some Udon soup, THIS PLACE HAS AWESOME UDON SOUP RAWR. they put fried goroke flakes in it and a lot of spring onions which made it even more delicious.
?? ??? ?? ?? ?? ??? ??? ??? ? ?????.
this is what we had the first time! the fried oysters with awesome dipping sauce. not sure what it was but I guess it was mayo something with some fish eggs. but really, if you are a fan of oysters (actually, even if you are not) THIS IS PURRRFECT. for only 2,000won? what a steal! 4 freshly fried oyster goroke!
?? ?? ???? ? ???! ??? ?????!
and my other favourite, the prawn with cream goroke. actually, I still can’t make my choice. both of them are SO DAMN AWESOME. it literally tastes like bits of heaven. there is another one similar to the above which is called the potato goroke. the guy who sells goroke personally preferred the potato one but I’d say GO FOR THE PRAWN ONE. it is ABSOLUTELY AMAZING.
? ???? ?? ??? ?? ?? ???! ? ??? ? ???? ? ? ???? ? ? ??? ? ? ?? ?? ???? ???.
the potato goroke with seseme dipping sauce! this one was good too but I guess I am just not a fan of potatoes.
?? ?? ????? ? ?? ?? ?? ???? ??? ??? ??? ????? ??? ??? ??? ??? ??? ?? ????? ????!
this is how the store look like! it is located across the street from where I live hahaha. basically just get off Hyehwa station exit 1 and walk straight!! I’ve actually eyed on this store because their samples look so damn attractive but I had to rush to meet someone every damn time and eventually forgot about it. but I am so glad I tried it finally! absolutely heavenly!
? ??? ?? ?? ????.
an easier landmark would be Caffe Pascucci. it is right in front of it. or get off exit 4 and walk across the main street and you’ll see it too. hahaha.
??? 1? ???? ? ?? ?? ???? ? ? ?? ????. ?? ? ?? ????! ??? 4? ???? ??? ??? ??? ? ? ????~
I posted this more than a month ago on facebook. I hope that everyone will treasure not only your family but even your friends. and do not make the same mistake as I did. the truth was, I was so busy I had always told him that I’d talk to him later but I was always so occupied I barely even remembered. so dear all, I truly hope that you can treasure your dearest friends before it is too late..
here’s what I had posted:
There was a guy I met through my blog a little more than two years ago. He scouted me for a job because I knew a little Korean at that time but it wasn’t adequate so I didn’t get it. But he was very supportive and encouraging. He then invited me out for dinner and we had met a few times and eventually became good friends. I was stupid to even have thought that he had motives the first time despite the age gap but he turned out to be a really nice guy. One of the nicest guys I’ve ever met to be frank. His intentions were so pure and every time he treats me extra nice he would explain that he had no special intentions and that he just wanted company. I suffered from mild depression and when it got worse he told me that if I’m living and healthy then that’s the greatest thing. He told me about his condition that he’d not normally share with others just to make me feel better. And after so long I wondered why he stopped contacting me since he said he will definitely come back to Korea and we would go to Noryangjin to have loads of seafood. I suddenly recalled that he told me he is like a living time bomb and i got worried so today I finally went to his facebook profile to find that he has passed away. I regret for only knowing it after two months. Please forgive me my dear friend. I am truly touched by everything you’ve did for me and I was going to treat you as nice when I grow older like you too. But there’s no more next time and I wouldn’t ever get to be as nice to you as you were to me. So people, please treasure your friends and be as nice to them whenever you can. As heart broken as I am I wish you can rest in peace. You will always be missed, dear U Fu. A truly amazing guy who had reminded me that there’s still hope in humanity.
just noticed that I have never ever had a picture together with him. =/.
you’ll always be in my heart. :’).

Basing on my assumption with so much Kawai factor, Brigitte cosmetics is definitely a direct competitor to Majolica Majorica and both of them strives to capture young women hearts like mine.
Wait, before you start identifying me as an old hag, the latest press kit I have with me states Brigitte's Target Audience is 20-33 years old, so I'm still considerably young ok. Swee, heng, kawaii.
This time round I received a couple of new things from their latest collection, first let me go into this oh so fine! cream blusher.
Every blush comes in 3 psychedelically marble tones to give a gradual silky finish.
The formula is mild and light and is very easy to pick up the colours even thought it looks faint on the skin.
The trick to apply them is to swirl my finger tips on the blusher and blend mixture lightly on the apples of my cheeks giving it a clean subtle outcome.
Almost transparent but yet the tinge of blush is noticeable, here's an #LOTD with Brigitte Marble Creamy Cheeks in OR-01
When it comes to the eyes, nobody does it better than Brigitte.
When you see me looking at cute fluffy lashes, you know is time you strap that straitjacket on me because I will buy buy buy until there's a hole in my pocket.
Brigitte Romantic Eyelash comes in 6 different designs, 2 pairs in a set.
Each bristle is made so fine it'll almost look like your natural lash when you wear them on!
My top favourite aspect of Brigitte's falsies is the lash Bone, so transparent almost unbelievable that is fake.
I'm not only huge on lashes but also eyeshadows!
They contribute an important part to my entire look, here I have with me a similar palette to my already existing collection.
Brigitte Romantic Eyes is available in 9 different quads.
Almost identical to my existing OR-1, GD-1 comes across as a heavier dose in shades and pigments.
If you are looking for a complete smoked out look, GD-1 is the one to get.
Hope you like my Review :D

With a bloated tummy, I made my way from Sham Shui Po, Tsim Sha Tsui, to Mong Kok to meet up a colleague of mine in KPMG Hong Kong (back then). Just as we were wandering aimlessly at Tsim Sha Tsui, we spotted this small setup of Hui Lau Shan. The curiosity got hold of me and I suggested to try it out.
Hui Lau Shan's mango dessert with coconut milk and red glutinous beans
Tables were placed closely with one another. If you were any fatter, you would bang the tables down without even trying. Staff were bustling like trained bees, bringing in customers' orders like mine. The faint yellow portrayed in front of me was a bad omen. Such sourness was no doubt of young mangos or worse, the wrong mangos! That bland red glutinous beans gave me the impression that they forgot to put sugar in it. In summary, I think Hui Lau Shan in Klang Valley serves better one.
Hui Lau Shan's mango mochi
My friend ordered a dessert set which came with this mango mochi, which he offered to share. Such bright orange was too inviting to not devour. The outer layer was soft and chewy, in contrast to the crisp coconut flake. The mango filling was filled with mango cubes in thick mango lava. It was made in one-bite size which is convenient to pop one into your mouth and let the sweetness break lose in your mouth. Please help yourself with some.
1881 Heritage Complex in Tsim Sha Tsui
After a disappointing visit to the famed Hui Lau Shan, we took a stroll at 1881 Heritage Complex in Tsim Sha Tsui. Formerly Hong Kong Marine Police Headquarters with a history of 129 years, it is now housing a shopping mall, a heritage hotel and an exhibition hall. Well, needless to say, prepare a good buck if you wish to crash here for the night or grab a few bargain along the way.
Interior of the complex
We roamed around the courtyard in the hot afternoon sun, took shade in between while enjoying the sceneries and mesmerizing (maybe just me :p) at this new shopping concept which is new to me. It was when we came across this small tower, namely Time Ball Tower. As the name indicated, it served as a time indicator for ships coming in Hong Kong as their chronometers usually lost its accuracy after long voyages.
Australian Dairy Company's steamed egg
I must say if one wasn't shopping in Hong Kong, it would be eating. Entering Day 3 in Hong Kong, my legs were screaming for rest. As the clock approaching 3 in the day, we headed to Australian Dairy Company for some famous steamed egg. Being a sweet tooth myself, this bowl of steamed egg was densely packed with sweetness that I would gladly do with just a quarter. That aside, the texture was perfectly smooth. Total slurp slurp goodness!
Kai Kei Snack at Mong Kok
After loading ourselves with overly sweet steamed egg, we found ourselves back to Mong Kok again. This time, I did some shopping at Sasa. Just so you know, every Sasa I passed by was always full and almost everyone would be carrying few products in their baskets. Yours sincerely happily joined the sweeping force and landed few Shiseido products into my basket. It was hard to resist when you get 25% + extra 10%. Total damage: RM498.95. In Malaysia, you would probably spend over RM600.
Kai Kei Snack's curry fish ball (HKD 8)
A satisfied shopping experience was then followed with a little snacking. Curry fish ball is probably most down to earth kind of snacks you can find in Hong Kong. Simple, cheap and eat it while you stand. Kai Kei's fish ball was less springy and more of starchy side, almost resembling the cheap sotong ball you find in Malaysia. Curry was not too exciting either. Guess I am just too spoiled with chillies, curry, sambal in Malaysia.
Lee Keung Kee North Point famous egg waffle at Mong Kok (HKD 15)
Now that we were done with the savoury snack, it was time for the sweets again. Instead of heading all the way to North Point to have a taste of the famous egg waffle, I resorted to Lee Keung Kee's branch in Mong Kok. That smell of egg and flour surely gave way to its hidden crib. I ordered one and it was huge! Crispy nonetheless, I was half heartedly wished it would be more moistened inside and more flavour.
Little Sheep's yin yeong soup base - Ma Lat and normal soup base
It was a long wait between tea time to dinner as the weather wasn't really on our side. It rained twice, to be exact; once while we were at 1881 Heritage Complex, another while we were on the bustling street of Mong Kok. Everyone was scampering, trying to look for shelter in whichever form they may be. Two of us half ran half sprinted and went into McDonalds. Surely it was crowded, especially in this weather. After good two hours of hide in McDonalds, we headed to Little Sheep and have some steaming hot Ma Lat and normal soup steamboat.
The menu of Little Sheep or Xiao Fei Yang at Mong Kok
I must say it was quite a hefty price to pay for steamboat in Hong Kong. What costed us RM20-30 in Malaysia is at least double here (in my case HKD 160). Good thing was the meat selection here was of good quality and most of the items were refillable. Soup were good, just that I did not get to throw some scallops to make it all the better. Was it value for money? Probably not for a small eater like me who doesn't fancy seafood with shells.
Panaromic view from Avenue of Stars at Tsim Sha Tsui
Dinner filled me to the brim to the extent I wouldn't want to walk. Being all touristy, I was here at Avenue of Stars just to check out whose palms those were. To my amusement, the sea side view attracted me most. Feeling the breeze caressing my cheek while smelling the faint salt in the air, my night could have been better with less humid atmosphere.
Not sure if it was the norm but the dark sky was all cloudy. While the ferries busy manoeuvring to and fro mainland and Hong Kong Island, the light cast on the sea did have its own appeal. The sound of rippling waves, the ever changing neon lights, can someone send me a leaning chair with a glass of whisky on ice?
Here I was at Avenue of Star
The Avenue of Star was not alone in this humid night. Tourists, most likely from mainland China, were all chatty and excited about some stars they could relate to. As for me, it was nothing spectacular to spot palms on the famed walk way. Rather, I found this little girl liked my camera very much that she just had to interrupt amidst my photo taking.
My Director friend
I guess, being all touristy does mean you have to take a picture with you in it! Here you go, me with my director friend. At this juncture, I still don't believe all the circumstances that led me to this foreign land, which also happened to be my FIRST overseas trip.
Hong Kong style ice cream (HKD 9)
Life is a journey, you just can't stop travelling. In the meanwhile, have a cone of ice cream. This was another down to earth thing you must try in Hong Kong, i.e. that ice cream from the ice cream truck. Creamy vanilla in a crispy waffle cone, simplicity at its best.
Mrs. Fields Cookies at Tsim Sha Tsui MTR station
Life is like a movie, have some cookies. Could it be just me or that Hong Kong's sweet stuff is really double the sweetness? One Mrs. Fields Cookies and I was all done for the day. Psst... HKD 39 for 6 after 9pm. Go ease your bad days with some of these sweet and soggy cookies.
It was hard to believe that it was the final full day I would be spending in Hong Kong.
I am going to miss this place very much :(

Selfie time !!
# DO you know SELFIE is a word now in Oxford dictionery?
And this was the view from above our flight with Norwegian air~~
there are just so many ways to lose weight in South Korea. but the thing is are you disciplined enough. well me, I am not. but because of the increasing number of lazy fat girls like me, they came out with the best way. you do not need to eat less nor skip meals. all you need to do is replace your meals with Ottugi’s Cup Noodle.
why? because it is only contains 120kcal! I am not being paid to write this wtf. they have several flavour like the Udon, Jjimdalg, Prawn.. but my favourite is the spicy one. it is just so good. basically they are glass noodles in freaking delicious soup and a cup noodle like this only costs around 1,000won depending on where you buy it. I’ve seen it selling in Carrefour (Cheongdam) for only 890won wtf while some places are selling it for 1,200won. there is a bigger cup with slightly more calories for beginners hahahaha.
well of course it isn’t very healthy to lose weight this way. but these cup noodles (with collagen! everything related to beauty in Korea MUST have collagen.) are actually created to help you lose weight. they wouldn’t be 120kcal for nothing. and it is recommended that you take it through a week straight to see results. I definitely saw mine. in fact, my super hot girl friend with a super hot bod from my school (Sungkyunkwan and their hot girls. tsk. makes me sad.) recommended this to me and said that this is her secret to losing weight. well since I was really fat (and still quite plump now T_T. can’t diet. I NEED THE ENERGY!), I ate the cup noodles twice in a day sometimes. and I did it for more than 2 weeks.
I would sometimes substitute one of my cup noodle meals with this only 100kcal yoghurt. but since it is really bad to be taking less than 1000 calories a day (when you eat, you’d gain right away!), I eat a decent 500-700 calorie meal each day.
and I also found this absolute ramyun gem.
the instant japchae!!! and it tastes bloody freaking awesome. it isn’t available at most places and you have to go to huge marts for it T_T. so far I’ve seen it only at Grand Mart in Sinchon le sigh. I am pretty sure I’ve came across it at some other marts/supermarts, but I can’t recall.
this is how it looks. it is really really really good. and I reckon these would make very well souvenirs hahaha. but they are also a little bit more pricey compared to the usual Shin Ramyun which costs 850won. these are 1,350won if I am not wrong. well, it tastes good and it contains only 220kcal.
but also, I do devour awesome high calorie food like..
galmaegi-sal. Pig’s brisket meat or something. but they are so darn good. especially the ones at Kang Ho Dong’s BeakJeong ??? ?? and they are so cheap. 2nd cheapest. cheapest is Samgyupsal still teehee. it is my favourite part! how can my taste be so cheap wtf.
here is my hot friend even on candid, Wai Yan. she was really famous in lowyat.net so maybe you’d know her. hahahaha. and all of you who thought she was fat, I am here to tell you that she’s lost weight and is now hot as hell. =D. well bad thing about having a hot friend is that they make you feel low. >=(.
here’s a weird picture of me because none of them looked decent. Wai Yan was just snapping away and I was talking in all of it wtf. was cooking for Princess Wai Yan hahaha. I cooked well! right? Wai Yan?
