When done right, is just about the most amazing thing you can eat.
I had some last night after a failed workout with friends. We were supposed to do routine workouts every Monday, and for the second time in a row, we’ve accomplished little to nothing in terms of sweating, or calorie-burning. My recent dissatisfaction with my inner thighs, never fail to remind me of this fact.
Dongsaeng and I both brought our clothing this time, but despite having my pink PUMA sports bra in hand, we ran into some friends on our way to the gym and talked in the hall for about 20 minutes. In the end, we ultimately turned back around and dropped off our sports clothes to walk along Madison Avenue. As we walked briskly, I exclaimed: “Oh my god is that PRADA?” and ran across the street. We looked in the window, and admired. Then we decided to look into every window on Madison Avenue, it seemed.
We walked down a few blocks, which took quite a chunk of time due to our criticisms and praise of fur coats, sequined dresses, and sky-high heels. Looking for Salvatore Ferragamo, (which we never found) we looped back up and walked back, gawking at all the stores on the opposing side of the street.
Standing in front of Marc Jacobs, we watched the entirety of the latest runway show for this years Mercedes Benz Fashion Week, then headed back to school to order in some food.
Restaurant of choice: Korean Express.
The food is usually okay, but this time it was great, because I’ve eaten there so much that I know which dishes are typically excellent and worth the money. Opting to share between the three of us, we bought Ddukboki, Tuna Kimbap, Vegetable Kimbap, a side order of Kimchi Jigae for Dongsaeng and a side order of one of my favorite stews: Yook Gae Jang. Everything was delicious. The stews were both extremely spicy, but not in the way that makes you want to die or causes regret before you are done with the last bite. Even after we were more than halfway done, both our stews were still omitting steam. It was all just perfect, and I know it will be five times more wonderful when the chill of winter starts to set in.
Because both stews were so amazing last night, when I happened to pass by Korean Express on my way home from visiting Hunter on my day off from work, I picked up another side order of Kimchi Jjigae. (I’m lucky because my mom didn’t make dinner tonight!)
I am more than full right now after enjoying my stew along with a thick slice of sweet potato, and looking forward to what I hope is a full body workout next Monday.
