V-day, iPod Touch, and Kimchibokkumbap

Han Mania | http://hanmania.blogspot.com

My boyfriend went to Boracay Island with his family for Valentine’s Day. I preferred to stay behind for two main reasons. First, that dream vacation is waaaayy oouuttt of my league. Inasmuch as I would’ve wanted to hit the sack at the posh Boracay Regency, the whole trip would’ve cost me my iPod Touch. Secondly, their departure date (12th of February) coincided with my mom’s birthday.

Hence, I spent the 14th of February at home, not necessarily in loneliness, with my iPod Touch. I missed my boyfriend but the whole time he was away wasn’t exactly unbearable. I filled my ipod with k-pop mp3s, k-movie clips, and hundreds of pics (Bi’s, of course!). The four days I spent hibernating in my room was by far the most fruitful for me, in terms of internet use, that is. Well, who would imagine that the day would come when I would learn to download torrents, use video converters, or differentiate avi from mp4? I was the staunchest anti-techie you can ever imagine.

And as I allowed myself to be engulfed by my whirlwind romance with Steve Jobs’ iPod Touch, I learned how to prepare kimchi bokkumbap. Kimchi bokkumbap is actually kimchi fried rice. It is so easy to make –just day-old rice, kimchi juice, some kimchi (spicy!), some meat, sesame oil, and fried egg. Truly no-fuss. For those who haven’t tried it yet, you can use My Korean Kitchen’s recipe. My Korean Kitchen features easy-to-follow recipes on Korean food, be it traditional or fusion.

And so, when my boyfriend came home, he was surprised to find the repackaged me. Yes, a net-savvy version of the girlfriend he left behind. He was truly elated that I am no longer idiotic when it comes to internet use. He is such a darling, isn’t he?

And this, dear stranger, concludes my post on V-day, iPod Touch, and Kimchi Bokkumbap.
