Thursday’s Bento

Today’s gym session was utterly exhausting. The heat outside was so hot. People were still hanging out on the swings at Raffles Place that’s part of a Greening Singapore Installation.



Since it was pretty hot and mommy hasn’t opened the shop, I hung out at Starbucks with a venti iced shaken hibiscus lemon tea and to read “A tale for the time being” by Ruth Ozeki. Pretty interesting book that flips between Ruth in Canada and a girl in Japan named Nao who writes a diary that Ruth finds.


When I went to work, I was pretty happy when I found out that mommy was inspired to make Korean cold buckwheat noodle soup, or Mul Naeng Myeon. She made a clear beef broth and cooked the buckwheat noodles separately. She didn’t add any other garnishings but sliced beef. It was refreshing and cooling for such a hot day like today. There’s a recipe on Aeri’s Kitchen for cold buckwheat guksu if you want to try to make this recipe.
