We had an awesome weekend of soju and singing, eating pig BBQ wrapped in lettuce and kimchi!
First on Friday our boss Jay took us out for some traditional Korean cuisine. Some of it delicious: like the flavourful broth of the fish and tofu soup, kimchi and Korean pizza (egg and potato pancake with octopus and green onions) broiled fish baked in gochujang (hot red pepper paste) and boiled egg white soup! Yum yum! And some not so much: mussel soup, quail eggs and cold cabbage soup with brine flavoured broth... meh its all a matter of taste right?
Then after it was off to a no rae bong (karaoke rooms) where we got our own room for just our party (apparently that is how it is done) complete with couches, flashing lights, and a communal table which was constantly filled with delicious fruits, dumpling, cheese sticks (just for Matt I think ;-) and flowing rum and beer. Korean beer is light and pale. We sang and sang until one of us, Erica, got too drunk and the night was cut short.
Next it was time to get up (oh brother!) and meet Ashley and we cheated and had an Italian lunch at Lotte department store. Then we enjoyed a day of chilling and catching up, saving up our strength to rock the night away again, karaoke style, before crashing hard core! What a way to start the weekend!
