Charbroiled Fresh Scallops - Da On Korean Fine Dining

My favourite seafood - a luxury treat from Datin Su Wai Fun Day. She knows her food, as she is not only a chef trained by Le Cordon Bleu Academy but is also organiser of the annual Malaysia International Gastronomy Festival or MIGF.

"Gong Yoo’s Hotel Room in Taiwan Costs 20 Million Won?" as reported by Castko via Mycen Hotel's Hotels In The News

The South Korean mega-heart-throb and megastar of zombie blockbuster Train To Busan reportedly paid 20 million South Korean won a night for a hotel room in Taipei? That is something like RM 74000 or USD 17600 approximate a night. He is big in Taiwan, with thousands of female fans screaming outside the hotel. But still?

K Pop - Watermelon Ice Cream On A Stick

A watermelon on a stick ice cream was surprisingly satisfying. Was with Korean food and Korean pop culture enthusiast Zyneste who introduced me to some funky Korean ramen from the Asian supermarket too. I bought a can of Haitai Bon Bon Grape juice too. Quite nice all.

Hot Day At Little Korea On This Day Two Years Ago

I like the many Korean grocers at Little Korea, Ampang. Everything on a product's packaging is in Korean. The few things I can make out visually is the graphic on the wrapper of this watermelon popsicle.

Korean Seafood And Spring Onion Pancake.

One of the nicest things to eat at a Korean restaurant is a Spring Onion Pancake. At B Bap, it is fried with eggs, seafood and spring onions. It is both crunchy, fluffy, crispy thin and is cut up into slices like a droopy thin crust pizza. My favourite is from Taiwan House in Ampang Point mall. Spring onion pancake is also a traditional Chinese home cooked dish using eggs, scallions, Chinese chives or ku chai and onions.

Doenjang Jjigae

Brave Johnny Ong choice for lunch was Doenjang Jjigae or Korean Fermented Soybean Paste Stew with tofu. Plenty of accompanying knick knacks and soup to fill up the small table at Be Bap. Good thing, I brought a wide angle lens. The deceptively tiny GM-1 is a system camera with interchangeable lens mount. The cozy Korean sidewalk restaurant in Nu Sentral faces the busy KL Sentral Station or transit hub and was crowded with people during lunch time.

Korean Glass Noodles

Korean Glass Noodles

The Korean dish of glass noodles or Tang Hoon (in Hokkien) is pretty delicious, photogenic and affordable for two struggling artists like me and Johnny Ong.. Johnny` was forever helpful, in not only driving me there. but also lifting the noodles with the awkward steel chopsticks for me to photograph.

I placed an American made Litepanels portable light at an angle to make the transparent glass noodles glow a bit. Stir fried glass noodles with vegetables and chicken is known as Jab Chae or sweet potato starch noodles at B Bab the Korean restaurant in Nu Sentral.

Funny how an almost 20 year old song stays fresh in your mind. Fresh like mint. I ordered a Mint Soda at the popular Korean casual cafe and they brought a glass of raw mint leaves and a can of Schweppes soda.

Plant a seed, plant a flower, plant a rose
You can plant any one of those
Keep planting to find out which one grows
It's a secret no one knows
It's a secret no one knows
Oh, no one knows
