♥Korean Stew Budae Jjigae♥

Annyeonghaseyo! ✌ (is the formal way of saying Hello in Korean!) I just had another good lunch...it's actually DIY (Do It Yourself) Korean Lunch --Japchae and Budae Jjigae!♨ Heaven!

After a visit to Chuk Buk, my favorite Korean Store in Angeles City. I got Kimchi, glass noodle and shitake mushroom. I'm all set! :-)...In the end, my Japchae was okay, so so!... I think I overcooked my noodles! :-(... but my Budae Jjigae was almost as close to Salt's version! :-) 
Hotel Vida Salt' Budae Jjigae

Salt is the restaurant of Hotel Vida. My family loves hanging out in the hotel for swimming, gym and dining. We all have our own favorites in Salt. My son's enjoys eating the Frankfurter Sandwich, of course mine is Budae Jjigae. :-) The Kimchi of Salt is also one of my favorite Kimchi vs. various the Korean restaurants and other commercially sold that I tried. Salt's Kimchi is aged perfectly...salty, sour & hot! :-)...I do love my Korean dish hot & spicy! ✌

Budae Jjigae is actually a variety of Jjigae, which is a Korean Stew. What makes this type of jjigae more exciting to eat is because it actually has a "modern" feel because of its added ingredients, ham, sausage and what have you! :-) So for my DIY budae jjigae, I included our New Year's left over ham! It's just simply divine! :-)

So, this is me keeping my fascination for Korean Culture alive and burning! :-) Fighting!!! ✌

This does look good and I've recently become a fan of spicy food.

My photo

Wifey to JB and Mommy to Chasey :) It's said that one's eyes are windows to one's soul. True! My eyes twinkle when I'm happy, they light up with my smile. I’m no frills! I'm easy to read (except during Poker). I easily get teary eyed on practically both happy and sad things. I'm overly emotional! UP,Toy Story 3, and Glee made me cry with delight.My hubby is my source of strength. He balances that side of my personality. He made me a more self-reliant person.I love being a mom. But be it known that I tend to be OC, paranoid, and definitely see my self as a stage mom.I can't help but throw him parties every year.I love to read. If there is a lifetime membership to Book Lover's Club, I've probably signed in as early as Grade 1. I'm blessed to have a special relationship with God. He is my confidante. I practically talked to him anywhere and anytime about anything. I'm a Kapampangan and supposedly known for having culinary skills.This still needs to be found perfected, but for sure, I can say I'm a gourmand!I love to eat and it shows!Oh well!Beauty is in the Eye of the Beholder and Happiness is only a state of mind. From today onwards, I intend to live in a Happy Mode!Cheers!
