Whoaaaa......I'm kinda lazy to update this blog lately, also it's been long time I never take any food photos :(. I seem lost my interest on food photography :(. Yea, I admit that "sceneries and people" photography are catching my attention now.

Anyway, as now is 2010 already, so I think I should, at least, update my blog *that abandoned for a while*, and this will become my first entry for 2010 :).

All these times, I only enjoyed the photos and recipes of bakmoy from other bloggers. Frankly speaking, from the look it doesn't attract me at all. In my mind, everytime I see bakmoy, I only can think of rice with soy sauce meat which is 'too plain' food for me. Until, few weeks ago, Christine told me that she wants to cook bakmoy, and at that time, I asked her a bit about the recipe, then since I have no idea what I should cook for our meals, so I give a try to make bakmoy as well.

So, right after I chatted with Christine that day, I googled the recipe. There are plenty of bakmoy's recipe with lots of variance. After searching lots of recipes, at the end I decided to combine 2 recipes from Ine and Esther's blog become 1. And as the words saying, "Don't judge a book by its cover", same with bakmoy, this dish is really good!! Yea, it is a very simple food but rich with flavor :).

And, guess what??? My hubby likes it!! So, yeaaa I think I would cook it more often now ;).....
