I have changed the basis of this blog. It will continue to have some mix ramblings. I think I will try to focus on Korean Food, Music, Movies, and Dramas (TV shows)

Hot Hot Hot!!
Yup, Im in California! This is my first trip ever. It was 110F today!! I arrived in California on Sunday, and now Im in the Sacramento airport.
Here is my awesome rental car...definite upgrade from my silverado.
Sight seeing: In case you were wondering..that is the golden gate bridge...personally I was severely disappointed. Its a lot smaller then I expected. Anyways, that wasnt the highlight of my tour. I was actually on a quest to find a Korean restaurant. Supposedly there are a lot of Koreans in the Bay area.
I must be addicted to Korean food because I spent about 2.5 hours looking for a Korean restaurant in particular....I never found it. However, I did find another Korean restaurant. It was filled with foreigners from Europe, and I was like "oh oh"...however a couple Koreans did wander in later. Anyways, pictures of my dinner: Nice selection of Banchan:
Then Kimchee Cheon:
Then one of my favorites Sundubo (spelling?) chigae:
It was about 9:30 PM by the time I got this food and I hadnt eaten since 10:30AM that day, so I was starving! I ate the sundobu so quickly that all I can taste in my mouth right now is a tingling sensation of a burned tongue :(
Anyways, it was fairly good. The sundobu was good, the kimchee cheon was too salty and a bit too greasy and over cooked. It also didnt have enough of the batter in it. But Im not one to complain when Im hungry. and yes, that is a Hite. I decided to have one for old times...even though its pretty watered down beer. actually the Hite was excellent combination with the salty and greasy cheon...lol
At least I was able to have a Korean fix while I was near San Francisco. The best part is the whole trip was paid for by someone else!
Anyways Im in the airport getting ready to head to Detroit. I dont arrive until 7AM tomorrow evening!! Then I just stay there until my flight to St. Louis at 3 PM!!
I am a Korean Adoptee. I was adopted when I was 5 years old.
I am am a process engineer (chemical engineer) for a major oil company, and I am currently working on my MBA in the evenings. Needless to say, I don't have much of a life....lol
