    I used to love wongfu. Enjoy their sketches and WFWs. But somehow my youtube suggestion stopped notified me, and well, i stopped watching them. Fastforward, i found this sketch, and… not really liking the story. Maybe im just getting old and getting passed their audience age range 😭😭

I’m all puffy this morning from eating failed home-made noodle experiments last night. I regret nothing. The quest continues!

    I’m looking to eat some good beef noodles from over 2 years when a Chinese restaurant closed here. Unfortunately authentic Chinese cuisine is so rare here that it’s hard to find another. This looks delish and I’m craving them again but this is tooo much work, I’ll pass 😅. How long does it take you to make them? The noodle making process is an art of itself, I doubt I can elongate the dough without breaking.

      It’s so much work, and I have neither the right tools nor the right ingredients, so failure is assured 😀 But I am loving the process. I keep ending up with noodles that are more like udon, sort of?, which is totally ok with me.
      Last night it took me about an hour, maybe two… But I was using leftover tortilla dough (just flour, salt, oil and water) that had rested in the refrigerator for a day, simply because I had it on hand. Resting the dough even more seems to help a lot – the second batch of the evening was much better, although I still ended up folding and cutting first, then pulling, and there was still a fair amount of tearing. They were definitely not hand-pulled, but also … not terrible? I ate them like cold soba, with a soy dressing and also toasted walnuts just because. I wish I thought to take a photo before I ate everything!

        If you’ll try again, I’ll be looking forward to the picture. You love the process so you will come through eventually but from your description it seems you did great already.
        The broth in this video seems to require extra time too but honestly the broth is the main thing in the beef noodles, I’m sure I might screw that because of limited spices or lack of patience 😂 your meal sounds delicious though.

          I haven’t even really attempted broth! I’m vegetarian, so I use different things to get the umami flavor and protein. I usually have homemade veg broth of some kind around, but yesterday I didn’t, so simple soy it was.

    Ah, the life long quest for delicious noodles of every kind. You’re absolutely right; regret nothing and move on!

    Traditional Chinese handmade noodles (regardless of type or style) is definitely an art form and is also becoming more and more rare as the years go by 🥺🥺🥺 (as is with most traditional ways of making things, e.g. the traditional way of making rice cakes in South Korea)

      There are so many things we will really miss if we lose the knowledge. There’s so much pressure on young people to pursue some modern definition of success, and I’m only finding out now in my life how happy I would have been as a noodle apprentice or a vegetable farmer. <3 Well, I am not dead yet! Maybe there's a way…

Some days you just need to watch people make noodles, and then everything falls into place.

    HASGHSDFGSH YES!!! when i rewatched the show i think you can see him falling for her earlier even from the first ep– he constantly picks on her (when he kneed her and called her ugly). i think by ep 3 when they were in the alley i was like wait does he like her but by this scene i was totally CONVINCED *insert me swooning*

    also if you ever want to talk abt r88 for literally ANYTHING PLEASE TAG ME I LOVE IT!!

      But there’s also Team Taek, and how is he so adorable? I love how they all look after him.

      And I’m shipping Taeki-appa and Sunwoo-umma soooo haaaaaard! I just want them to be happy and taken care of. They work so hard to take care of everybody else.

      AND AND AND OMG Can we take a minute just to appreciate how MAGNIFICENT Bora is?! She is incredible. Terrifyingly awesome. So glad that she kicked that “I already apologized, what do you want? You’ll never get a man with that temper” bf hard to the curb. She needs someone who respects her passion and is like “Girl u shine so bright I gotta wear shades at night and also u look cute in round glasses and pls wear skirts more I dig it” aaaaaaand enter cute devoted neighbor boy YES PLEASE.

          HASDGDFSG listen i finished this show in january and am STILL OBSESSED u have no idea!!! bora is super fierce, in the initial episodes i thought she was too mean but she does have a softer side and i ended up really loving her badass nature. and YESSSS the thing i love most abt this show is how warm each relationship is, it made me feel like i was part of the neighborhood not watching a show!

            I have laughed out loud so much watching this. How they all tease each other but are totally ride-or-die at the same time is just awesome.

            Also Mrs Cheetah: I’m a fan for life. Really all the adults – who are closest to my current age – love them so much!

            That was something I liked about My Ajusshi, btw. It’s not part of the main plot, but there are a lot of side characters who make up the neighborhood where Ajusshi lives and grew up. It may only function to draw the contrast between the two leads’ environments, but ohhhhhh you just wanna curl up there. Can I be reborn in a Kdrama alley full of families?
