I just finished a book last night. Its name is Someone Who Will Love You in All Your Damaged Glory. It was written by Raphael Bob-Waksberg. This is a book that I never knew I was gonna like it this much, but it was a pure delight for me. Very fun to read.

Having a pink cover page is also a big plus.

        I finished the second episode just a moment ago. It’s surprising that the supporting cast has so many actors that I love. I like Shin Hye-sun but has never named her as my fav; she is nailing it here. I didn’t particularly like the ML but he is still ok.

        You mean River Where the Wind Blows?
        Oh.. Where the Moon Rises?

        But why do you need to celebrate it? Is it the spring time? Like your winter holidays?

          Lent is a approximately 40 day religious observance in the Christian calendar practiced by much of the Western Christian world in preparation for Easter. It starts on Ash Wednesday and ends, depending on your denomination, some time during Holy Week. It co-incides with the Northern Hemisphere Spring.
          Often observers give up something in a fast for the entire duration.
          I don’t know, Kiara can correct me, but the implication here is that Toki is giving up db, or perhaps all online social media, for Lent.

          And yes, /I/ mean River Where the Moon Rises, and I presume Kiara does too since we’re both in the Sageuk “club” lol.

            I see. Thank you @sicarius for a very clear explanation. Can you give up anything.. like a certain type of food too? For example, you can choose to give up ice-cream because you don’t normally eat it anyway.

            I don’t think I’ll ever be in that club since sagueks are really not my thing.

            @mmmmm For Lent, if a person so chooses to fast (give up) on something for the season, it’s typically something that the person feels they indulge in too much, not something they don’t use/have/eat irregularly

            2
            0

            @mmmmm there’s a lot to unpack in that question but I need to go to bed!!!!
            Uhm in short:
            A primary purpose of Lent is preparing your heart/mind for the celebration of Easter.
            Fasting is intended to refocus you by replacing whatever it is you’re fasting from and the time spent on that thing (whatever it is) with focusing on God- or in this specific case Easter, Christ’s journey to the Cross, His death and resurrection for our sins, and everything involved in that.
            And so the idea is you give up something that makes that worthwhile- something it is worth giving up for God.

            As for WHAT you give up (food vs other things) it really depends on a) what denomination you are and then b) what branch of that denomination you are… it gets quite complicated quite quickly.

            There’s a lot more than that but hopefully that gives you a general idea.

            @bebeswtz and @sicarius thank you very much you two. 🙂 After I posted my last question I also thought that perhaps it was about giving up something you normally indulge instead of something you don’t normally do or eat. I understand the general idea now.

            And good night Sic and I’ll see you sometimes in Discord bebe 😉

    Kudos to the SISYPHUS: THE MYTH stunt/special effects folks who pulled that scene off!

    I hereby declare that Sisyphus is a comedy. Not so sure if the actors alone will be able to make me continue watching. The show is boring, plot-wise (resembles Alice); makes me roll my eyes production-wise. Some good things about it are the actors and the message about past regret.

    🙄😒 I really wanna like it..

    Its saturday already in Jakarta, and we’re on our annual flood day. 😅😅
    I personally busy put up my stuff that placed at lower space into the top of shelf, cupboard, wardrobe and everything. The water went up just a few cm from our front door, so our house is pretty much dry. but still, just in case 😁.
    Dont worry to much tho, the water dried up already by now, and if its stay dry tonight and tommorow, our flood day of the year is pretty much over 😂😂.

      Oh that’s new to me @nilsche but do you actually have the flood day of the year? Oh my heart goes to you and I’m relieved to hear that everything seems under control.

      I hope everything goes well and you’re always dry! 🥺

      1
      1

        Theres ofcourse no such thing as flood day 🤣. Its a moonsoon flood, and happened pretty much around this date every year we’re not shocked anymore😓. Some years its just the areas near rivers (not riverbanks tho. Little further away from the river), some years its half of jakarta become water park. Some years it takes days to dry up, some dries within hours.
        This year’s flood is quite tamed in comparison of last year’s.
        Fun fact, if you search up the news in international newssites, they’ll emphasises the number of “victims”. But if you looked up the local news or sns, you’ll mostly find people making memes or having fun as if theyre in the waterpark or sth.

          I love the sense of humor of you guys! 🤣 I know that sometimes we have to see the funny side of everything in order to be able to bear with the situation (people in my country do that too.) But here’s hoping that everything will dry soon.

          Sending hugs your way from Thailand.

Kimchi-jjigae

When in doubt, cook. 👩‍🍳

I love the recipe from this website:

    I used ready-made kimchi and chicken broth instead of homemade fish broth. That one is too complex for me to make

      The only mistake is that I used soft tofu instead of the firmer one.

      I made some dishes from the recipes on her website and trust me Maq they were so delicious. I think I did this recipe, the one that was cold noodles with sweet, red sauce, kimchi pancake, crispy fried chicken and ginger honey tea I think. I love kimchi-jjigae the most though. 😊

        I’ve made one of her noodle recipes a while ago. However, I don’t ordinarily cook, so I haven’t had much of an opportunity to try more.

        Some of her recipes just look divine. Cheese bulduk and tteokgalbi each look amazing, for example.

          Ahh soybean paste stew! I tried making that once, but my conclusion was that I liked Kimchi jjigae much more. Doesn’t mean the deonchan one way bad though!

          1
          2

            I preferred kimchi jjigae more too but sometimes, when main dish is a little sweet I like the saltiness and nutty taste of soybean paste to balance it out.

            1
            0

            I see. I was gonna say that deonchan jjigae was a bit too salty to eat as one main dish. I think by having other dishes that are a bit on the sweet side as you suggested should balance the saltiness taste of it well too!

        Zora I’m a bit ashamed here but I ate the kimchijjigae for three meals and I finished all of that pot myself. 😭

        I ate half a kilo of pork belly within a day.. I’m in a bad situation now.

    Love Maangchi! I just made her fried chicken this week – so good. Her sauces are the best. I don’t eat pork, so authentic kimchi jjigae is out for me, but maybe I can make some substitution and get something similar.

    2
    2

      I believe you can substitute pork with something you can eat? But it’s so good 🥺. (Or perhaps you can try deonchan jjigae?) I tried making her fried chicken once but I thought it used too much oil so that was the only time I did that.

      Glad you enjoyed your chicken! 🥂

      Make it with tuna instead. I don’t like the mouth feel of pork in kimchi jjigae. I saw Eric Nam make it with tuna and that’s how I make it now.

      1
      2

        That sounds perhaps more healthy? But the flavor of pork belly in the kimchi soup was so mouth-watering I thought pork was the best part of it tbh. 🥺

        But perhaps I’ll try tuna sometimes.

          I have tried it with tuna and it’s really good especially when the kimchi is ripe.

        Ohh, that seems good! And I just checked, and it looks like Maangchi has a tuna version on her site too. Maybe I’ll get some tuna when I go shopping today. I definitely have some older kimchi in my fridge at the moment.

        1

          I hope you can make a delicious tuna kimchi jjigae. Though I prefer pork (belly), I am thinking that the tuna version should be good too. This is especially for some that prefer something other than pork. 🙂

        It’s lots of action. I don’t think I’ll know if I like it for at least 4 episodes. I’m committed though either way, so there may be lots of snarky remarks in the future.

          😔 I’ve seen it and as much as I want to have fun with you and Beanies, I think I’ll have to drop out. The first ep is so funny in all the wrong way for me: The village in a mountain looks like a hobbit village, and the king is on the verge of being mad and so on.

          The only good thing about it is costume. It’s visually pleasing. Kang Ha-neul is pretty too but he too looks too young.

          I’m now watching the one Jo Seung-woo is in though. It’s quite fun and I always have a soft spot for him.
