Noodles with Kim-chi(Kim-chi guk-su)

Please don't forget to enter the Perricone MD giveaway (click here to enter)! It ends February 20th at 11:59 PST. :)


Happy belated Valentine's Day! I hope you had a great day. Even if you're single, you could have celebrated with love ones... hehe~ ;) Also Happy belated Chinese/Lunar New Year!!! I hope you had rice soup (click here for the recipe). It's a Korean tradition to eat this. :D


Speaking of recipe, this is a long waited post... lol~ I haven't made this in awhile, but it's been in my folder for months. :X I think it's time I post this... hehe~ :D

If you need some guidance with the ingredients, you can check my Korean Cooking 101. ;)

Ingredients:
cabbage
cucumbers
kim-chi
noodle (any type that is white and thin)
red pepper paste
sesame sauce
sesame seed
sugar

Step 1:
In a big bowl, cut some cabbage and cucumbers.
It's best to cut kim-chi that is almost bad. The fresh ones doesn't taste as good... hehe~ Cut kim-chi into small pieces and add the juice that is left over on the cutting board.
Boil the noodles like you do spaghetti. It can be any Asian style noodles like udon, somen, and so on. Then drain the noodles and then add it to the big bowl. Add red pepper paste (start with one spoonful and add more when you need it), sesame sauce, sesame seeds, and sugar. Mix!
I top the dish with thin, strip of cucumbers and an egg. :)


I'm going to end this post with looks from the Maybelline EyeStudio palettes. I bought two recently, I guess not that recent more like couple of weeks ago... hehe~ The first one I bought from Target during their sale.
This is how it looks on the outside. It's also a palette I've been wanting since it first came out end of last year (click here to read my post on these palettes).
This one is called Green with Envy. It runs from light brown/tan-ish color to dark green.
Here is the swatch to the eyeshadow palette.
This is what I came up with.
This is the other palette I bought. I bought this from Rite-Aid during their 40% off deal. This one is called Give Me Gold.
Here is the swatch from left to right.
Here's what I came up with.

How was your Lunar New Year/Valentine's day celebration?

Green With Envy reminds me of Majolica's GR750! The colours are a bit off though, and I prefer the golden green in the Maybelline palette instead of MJ's olive green.

I like your gradation EOTDs! You blended everything perfectly :)

The Mango body butter has a super strong smell! Kind of a sweet chemical scent? Idk if it was a trick of light (I have yellow lighting in my room), but my legs looked mighty yellow after I applied it haha XD

That dish looks yummy! I love "eating" Korean food but I suck at cooking hehe

I have been eyeing those maybelline quads too but have yet to pick any up yet :)

miemiemie said...

haha you're always too nice. blogger ladies are way too nice to me. people i know wouldn't say nice things like that..that's one reason why i love the web more than real life..hahaha

i have to wear bb cream, well it does count as foundation right? i need some spf and some evening out..my dark undereye circles look so much worse in real life..photos can be deceiving..sometimes i wish i knew how to do photoshop so my photos would look amazing..but then who would read a blog that's all about faking things right...or maybe i could photoshop myself in real life..haha no more circles

Happy late V-day Alyssa!

It's very cute and loving you took your dad out for V-day.

Yay, I love your Korean Cooking 101 class. ^^ Kim-chi noodles look so yummy, especially with the egg on top.

Your green EOTD is gorgeous! Everything fits so well together. The Give Me Gold look is awesome too, something a eyeshadow newbie like me can attempt... maybe lol.
