It's bound to be a great day with a perfect date like 10.10.10! The highlight today was the fantastic Korean barbecue I had after church. One of the guys in my small group treated us to a wondrous feast at San Soo Kap San in Flushing. His girlfriend, who is a Hong Kong television actress, was in town visiting, and I can only assume we are also partly indebted to her presence for the lavish showing of excellent cuisine and generosity, in addition to her luminous company. The food was absolutely amazing. We went all out with samgyeopsal (pork belly) and kalbi (beef spare ribs) grilled right at the table, plus japchae (stir-fried cellophane noodles), dukbokki (spicy glutinous rice cakes) with octopus, seafood and kim chi pancakes, and of course the plethora of side dishes.
The lunch was so tantalizingly good, but here's the bad news: I didn't bring my camera, so I did not get any photographs of this terrific spread to make your mouths water. I've been feeling the need to get away from my camera after toting it around literally everywhere I go, so I made the executive decision to leave it at home today. I do regret not being able to document the meal, but it was also strangely refreshing and freeing not having the weight of a camera bag on my shoulder.
In the evening, I again took some time to relax at home. I got some laundry done, then invited the two kids in the house to watch the movie Prince of Persia: Sands of Time on my laptop with me. It was the perfect mindless film with some surprisingly awesome and beautiful action sequences and an outlandish plot that wasn't too difficult to follow.
