I made this with Rakuga-cute program ^^
The Camwhoring does not stop here...
...End of session... hehehe^^
[Meanwhile let's start with what I did on Saturday]... I went to Town Square for dinner at Brio. It was my first time dining there and I had always wanted to try it... I tried to go before but it had failed since the wait was way too long. This time it was a 35 minute wait. I couldn't pass the chance again so I went ahead and waited.. Luckily, it only took 15 minutes before our buzzer went off. Anyway, Brio is a Tuscan grille restaurant~ I heard nothing but great things about this place.
Such a nice elegant restaurant..
It was freezing outside so nobody ate there... They have large fire pits on the other side... I saw a couple sitting there sipping wine... But it was way too cold for me.
There were several cute little Christmas Trees near the entrance doors.
The decor was beautiful and cozy!~ it was also such a big place!
...View from my dinner table~ Table for 3 ^^
Delicious bread and butter
My favorite soup of ALL TIME: Lobster Bisque~ While I was enjoying my soup, I realized that I forgot to take a picture hahahaha!~ Yes..I did it after it was almost all gone.
I love chardonnay~ This one is an Italian white wine.
Can't go wrong with Blue Moon Beer (Wheat beer)...hehe
Crab and Shrimp Ravioli with tomato base Lobster sauce (my dish)
Medallion Medium Rare Steak with Grilled shrimp and rice
Brick-Grilled Shrimp with Rice (Sorry for the darkness. I didn't edit my pics~ Got lazy) haha
After dinner, we took a stroll around Town Square.
Beautiful Extra Gigantic Christmas Tree
It lights up different colors!!!.... That reminds me.. I have to put up my huge pink Christmas tree too haha
Santa's House~ I took a peak in it....So made me want to go in and Sit on his Lap!~ Hahaha! He looked so cuddly!~ However, I know that underneath the disguise, he's probably not who he appears to be. lol
It was cold so ended the day with hot Rose Milk Tea to go~from Tea Station. (my fav)
[Today~] my last day of cooking class!! it was the day of our practical! It was basically like iron chef! You are given a time limit to make a soup, salad and entree, and given three random cooking methods. You are then required to apply those cooking methods to the surprise basket of ingredients that you'll have to use up. In my team's case, we got [Poaching, Grilling, and Marinate]. We had to apply that to a bunch of veggies, pork, and shrimp. I had to be the leader of course -___-.. Anyway, it was so hilarious as there were at least 5 people that came in late.. They were all required to do 20 push-ups~ Hahaha~luckily, all the late ones were males.
Took a quick snap of my fellow classmate in action LOL
Anyway, with all the hectic stuff going on with the menu & preparation planning, this is what we came up with.
Pork stew with carrots, potatoes and sweet potatoes for our soup (messy plating, that's because we started plating early and realized that it wasn't time to plate yet.. afraid that we would loose points for that, we dumped the soups back in the pot and later re-scooped it) lol
Grilled pork salad with crispy onions on top and a Japanese salad dressing (Sesame oil, Mayo, Shoyu, Hot sauce)
For our entree, we did skewered grilled shrimp and vegetables on top of garlic fried rice and softly poached asparagus.
Cooking class was a great memory~ I'm going to miss this class since we all get along and interact with each other so well. Here is last week's reminisce.
Instructor gave us our directions in class before we head out to the kitchen. (See my leopard jacket? haha~ That's right.. I sit in the back with the cool kids~ lol)
Topic of the day was Deli food (Salads and Sandwiches)
Other team's pressed panini & Sweet potato fries (my professor said that this plate was a boy) hahaha
Burgers for the vegetarians~ Portobello mushroom burgers haha
Thai salad from another team ^^
Lastly, this is from our team~ Grilled chicken salad topped with delicious toasted almonds
Anyway~After my 2 classes today, I headed over to my workplace (Q studio) because my co-worker/friend needed me to correct his English paper and do some peer editing. He has gotten A's all throughout the semester thanks to my help~ That is why, he promised to treat me out for Sushi tomorrow after work. haha *Can't wait*~ I took some pics of my friends while they were eating hahaha
behold~ Yo-sub and Eric
They seem to be having such a nice conversation over dinner hahaha
Eric giving me a dirty look~ With that threat, I decided to whip out my pudding camera program on my iphone and take some artistic shots lol
Thanks for being my male models~ haha
Anyway, you guys should really download the Pudding Camera app. It's so awesome
It's my favorite app so far. It has various cameras that you can choose from and different filters as well
Anyway, after I was done, I went to the market because I ran out of Shampoo, Conditioner and Body Wash at home... however.. I ended up buying a lot more -___-
**sigh** this always happens.. hahaha.. Let's see some of the newly purchases up close...
Liante Fruit Essence Conditioner....Apple and Kiwi~ Literally smells like green apple candy starbust~ Love it!! should I try to taste it? hahaha
Silk Shampoo...Mint~ leaving a fresh tingly feel on your scalp ^^
Silk Body wash.... I love Kracie brand~ this is such a foamy body wash! ~ Makes you feel 100x cleaner hahaha
Makeup remover wipes~ nothing like the scent of roses on your face ^^
Strawberry air freshener for my car <3
toothbrush and tooth paste holder~ Yea I know, I should have owned one a long time ago haha... I got tired of my toothbrush and toothpaste laying around the sink area.~ Need to organize!
Delicious and great for your skin~ Aloe Vera drink w/ little bits of Aloe Vera jellies inside.
Can't live without Edamame.. especially while watching late night movies and dramas!
Instant Jajjangmyun *Delicious* this is my favorite brand. I like it because it is more flavorful than the other brands, although the black bean sauce is in powder form... Some may prefer the liquid form. But either way, it becomes liquid after you mix the packet with the other sesame oil packet.~ Omg typing this post at 2am and my mouth is watering~ *FML*
Little cans of ice coffee to start off my busy daily schedule!
cans of Red pepper tuna recommended by Yo-sub and Eric haha!
Green Tea Pancake mix ^^
Korean style pre-marinated and non-marinated pork belly for later BBQ's
Super ultra delicious roasted seeweed~ I prefer the korean kind as opposed to the Japanese kind~ try it and you'll know what I mean. The seeweed sheets are thinner and crispier~ However they're a bit oily. But it's so delicious!!!
Lastly, Spicy raw oysters~ so good!!! especially with rice!
That is all for today's activities haha.
