Kimchi Jun 1
Alhamdulillah… Thanks God… everything went well for my “big project” *though it’s still in the early chapters :D - but I’ve worked hard for them*, so I can spend little time to write a recipe for updating my blog *yay!!!!* --> it feels like a reward for me :D.

Phew… Not much I can tell you about what I did recently except “dating” some stacks of books in the library regularly hahahaha *LOL* plus terrible fever, flu, sore throat, cough, headache --> aaarrrgghhhh. Ow, my sleeping habit also has changed now. I used to suffer from insomnia and fall asleep after 3 am. But, now I have to go bed so early – at 7.30 or 8 pm *after Isya’* for I have to stay awake from 1 am ‘til morning doing my “big project” :D. I can’t work or study at the normal time in the night since the situation in my boardinghouse hohohoho is always sooooo noisy! Loud music, cacklings, tv, etc etc etc, aaarrrgghhh…. I’m one who cannot bear any sounds distractions when studying – those sounds are totally a big destroyer for my concentration. Staying awake from 1 am ‘til morning is actually almost the same with insomnia, but at least I have slept before. Working at a time when all of my boardinghousemates are falling asleep is much easier for me - the situation is completely so quiet and peaceful, and the air is so fresh *I like to open my room door when I’m studying, and that fresh morning air filling my room is just like natural AC hehehe*. Sometimes, I was also entertained by a frog family which was happily singing for me on a little Koi Fish pond on the base floor *their songs are better for me than my friends’ noisy singing concerts ha ha ha*.

Kimchi Jun 2

Okay, now I come across with Kimch Jun/Jeon aka Kimchi Omelet/Pancake for my Korean Food Parade. This is my most favorite Korean Food version using Kimchi. I always love the idea of mixing eggs with any ingredients to make omelet – and no exception with this Kimchi omelet idea. I fried the omelet by using my little non stick pan – it resulted thick omelets that I really loved. For the dipping, instead of following the one used in Kevin’s blog which uses some sounds-from-fairy-land ingredients, I made my own simple version *but I’d rather to call mine “sauce” than “dipping”. I had my Kimchi Jun while reading Anita Woolfolk’s Educational Psychology hehehe. Hello… Its not only my brain which needs to be feed with knowledge, my belly also needs to be feed with snackie :P

Kimchi Omelet

1 glass Rolled Kim Chi (with the liquid), drained first then chopped
1 tbsp gochujang *opt*
3 tbsp all purpose flour
2 eggs
A little pinch of salt to taste
Oil to fry
Green onion, angled-sliced to garnish

3 tbsp sweet tomato sauce
2 tbsp hot tomato sauce
2 tbsp pure honey

Gochujang (REMEMBER --> You only need 1 tbsp, you can save the rest in the fridge to make Kimchi Jjigae and Bi Bim Bop):
1 ½ tbsp soy sauce
1 tbsp sesame oil
1 tsp palm sugar/javanese sugar
1 tbsp chopped green onion,
1 tsp toasted sesame seeds

1. Sauce: Mix all ingredients.
2. Omelette: Mix all ingredients except oil and green onion. Heat oil on a non-stick pan, pour the batter and cook until its both sides are golden brown in color and done.
3. Serve with the dipping and garnish with green onion.
