Saturday night, when the hacking and sniffles subsided, Aaron and I had a date night. We don't do this often and when we do it's a pretty special occasion.
This night's occasion? The Hangover was released in Singapore cinemas.
Ha. I'm not even kidding.
We were that excited.
I know it's not exactly a holiday, but we had just endured two months of reading our friends' comments about the movie on Facebook. It was almost like torture. It's like having all of your friends talk about Chipotle when you live in Singapore where it doesn't exist.
Oh wait. They do that too.
So back to happier things.
Our date night consisted of trying out the new Seoul Garden restaurant in Northpoint Mall. It's Korean BBQ and it's very delicious.
You pick out your raw food, veggies and spices. Then you bring it back to your table to cook it. Each table has this hole in the middle.
You simmer a soup in the center while your cook your food in the cast iron ring around it.
This dinner taught us a couple of things:
1) Ang Mohs aren't so good at making soup. There were no ingredients for potato or chicken noodle. We were at a loss.
2) Ang Mohs also don't know what 75% of the ingredients are at the raw bar in an Asian restaurant. I think I saw big, long things of okra, but aren't you supposed to chop those things up?
(Ang Moh is how the Singaporeans refer to caucasian people, by the way.)
After we finished the edible part of dinner, which consisted of meat, onions and peppers, we pretty much had to dump out all of the soup. Apparently, soy sauce and salty broth don't equal edible soup.
We had fun though. What we knew how to cook was really really good.
Next time though, we need to either bring a Singaporean with us or look some stuff up.
