Korean Cuisine is definitely not a foreign term for Kuchingnites. We were crazy about K-pop K-drama and down to falling in love with all the Korean related everything. I’m not sure about you but I am a big fans of Korean Food and were extremely delighted when Pullman Kuching launched the Korean Food Festival!
This is the first ever korea food promotion introduced by the hotel. For our fellow food lovers, the Korean Food Festival will be here from the 26th June to 9th July 2017 for a two weeks buffet style basis and after this two weeks, Korean Buffet will only be available on the weekdays but ala carte is served throughout. Specially thanks to our Korean Chef Lee Seung Joon for bringing us so much good food. And if you were doubting about authenticity, don’t worry! the Korean Food Festival is specially planned by the beloved Korean General Manager of Pullman Kuching, Mr. Charles Choi. #doubletheauthenticity
yay!! Korean Food!!! – the ultra happiness shown –
Lets take a walk through the buffet line: we have the side dish station, the main course station, the grilled station and the dessert station.
The all time favourite, side dishes! Korean Food Festival served more than 16 types of side dishes or you can call you banchan to go with your main courses. Among my favourite will be the kimchi, the tuna kimbap, jap chey and the silken tofu!
If you want more greens, here you go!
Proceed to the main courses for the night;
Dak Gang Jung | Fried crispy chicken thigh with sweet and slightly spicy sauce
I personally like the dak gang jung. The chicken thigh is fried with a very thin batter and coated with heavy sweet and spicy sauce. Meat is still juicy inside! Yums!
Beef Bulgogi | Beef slices marinated and stir fry in the special sauce
Saengseon Jorim | Pacific ocean mackerel, radish, leeks with spicy sauce
I absolutely love this dish. The sauce is not too spicy but it goes well together with the mackerel. Mackerel is fresh and its slight grilled before slow cooked with the radish. Radish is cook through and it absorb all the goodness of the sauce. Can’t stop eating it!
Beef Galbi Jjim | Premium NZ beef short rib, radish, carrot cooked with traditional soya sauce, onion & sesame seeds
This is the bomb. My favourite and highly recommended dish in Korean Food Festival. The short ribs is fall of the bone, juicy tender and so well marinated. You know when you ingredients were fresh and good. I had three rounds of beef galbi. Its just so addicitive!
Dak Bokum Tang | Korean Spicy Chicken stew with potato
Ojing o Bokum | Fresh squid, mixed vegetables with chili paste
Such impressive main courses! But there’s more; The grilled station!
Grilled prawns of the size of the palm
Grilled beef short ribs and chicken thighs
They also have bibimbap as per order.
Lets DIG INNNN!!!
No matter how full you are, there’s always a magic compartment for desserts!!
My favourite goes to the peanut butter cake, red velvet cream cheese cake and the dark brownies!
My tummy is so well pampered! Thank you Pullman Kuching for having us! And thank you my eating partner Jacqueline for making this food feasting time fun and full of laughter! We both enjoyed our time trying all the Korean food specially crafted by Chef Lee!

The utmost popular Sanrio Character — Gudetama has arrived in Singapore!! As promised, I’ll be sharing my awesome dining experience there! I missed out the chances to visit Gudetama Cafe in Hongkong and Japan but guess what, they invaded Singapore!! How to not go!! If you ask me whether the food is good, I can only say everything taste good in such environment! SOOOO CUTE!!!!
Gudetama Cafe Singapore is now opened at Suntec City Singapore. Being a Gudetama fanatic, I’ve been smiling though. I cant bare with the cuteness! Let me show you!! p/s: It was a surprise visit so I don’t have my camera with me, I haven have my new phone with me so all the pictures were taken with my half condemned Samsung Note 4. 🙁
I can’t breathe! Even when I’m writing it, I’m feeling the joy. Hahahaha!!
Here comes the food.
“i’m Cold” Smoked Salmon Eggs Benedict( SGD 26.90 / RM 86 )
Poached eggs with smoked salmon over mashed avocado on brioche toast drizzled with Yuzu hollandaise sauce, served with seasonal greens
Masu-Cha( SGD 11.90 / RM 38 ) Matcha Smoothies with Pepero Sticks, popcorns and marshmallows.
Gude-Pudding( SGD 16.90 / RM 54 )
Caramel, flan, with premium vanilla soft serve, caramelised bananas, apple crumble and a crispy sesame orange tuile.
I especially love the Gude-Pudding. Pudding is silky smooth and it taste like one of my favourite pudding in Japan.
How egg-cellent and egg-citing!! A place that makes all the ladies scream!! Its a norm to see everyone spending their sweet time or some took forever to snap pictures (just like me). A perfect place for a ladies day out so you can scream all your want and snap all the photos you love and if you are going for a date, GUYS PLEASE, bare with your girlfriends. Its indeed a never ending photo taking session before you can even touched the food!!

Oh! You do not want to miss the chance to take a pic with this cute Gudetama statue thing! I went during Easter time so here’s Gudetama Bunny! #meltanddie
When life give you lemon, made lemonade. Really? You aint treating me well these past few months. They have been the gloomiest few months that I am hanging on. Work interfering, sabotaging, dealing with perpetrators is something inevitable now. It used to be a serenity for me, spending almost half of my daily time here with beautiful people surrounded. But good things never last, bad things never dies. Its gone.
For those who have the practice to create issues during work, please remember that you will always be perceived as someone immature and unlikable. No matter how you strive in a negative way, you will never achieve a standard for your own.
I personally value working environment more than everything because the best creative work is never done when one is unhappy. If you don’t feel right anymore, leave. Its never worth your time if you are unhappy. I sometimes look back to my remedies, why isn’t it working anymore? I am a wanderlust, someone who adored freedom as much as you treasure your fanatic addiction. Being able to fly and see the world always make me happier, to be able to explore give me gratitude,knowing little bit more about the world and little bit less about myself.
Staring at this beautiful scenery of Yokohama, a small town i visited last February. Magnificent and majestic. I remember when I visited this peaceful small town in Japan, you have basically limited things to do but instead, you learn how they live their daily life, do what the locals do, understand their culture and it will bring your journey to a more fruitful and meaningful extent. This is how I magnified the beauty of travel and narrowed down the little negative issues in my life, or I say work. I want to let loose myself at some foreign land soon. Or maybe I should try to do something I like instead of following protocols in life. You know, you only live once so make sure you spend it worthwhile.
I guess I haven’t travel for a few months and it makes my head dizzy, drain my soul and freeze my inspiration. HAHAHAHAHA! OMG I AM SO UNHAPPY AND STRESS OUT THIS MONTH! Just let me whine a bit here can?!!
