Kimchi Making Day and World War Z

Wednesday, July 03, 2013

Finally meeting up with friends back home and what do we do? Make Kimchi!

Kimchi (Korean: 김치 Korean pronunciation: [kimtɕʰi]; English pronunciation: /ˈkɪmtʃi/), also spelled kimchee or gimchi, is a traditional fermented Korean side dish made of vegetables with a variety of seasonings. In traditional preparation Kimchi was often allowed to ferment underground in jars for months at a time. It is Korea's national dish, and there are hundreds of varieties made with a main vegetable ingredient such as napa cabbage, radish, scallion, or cucumber. Kimchi is also a main ingredient for many Korean dishes such as kimchi stew (김치찌개; kimchi jjigae), kimchi pancake (김치부침게; kimchijeon), kimchi soup (김칫국; kimchiguk), and kimchi fried rice (김치볶음밥; kimchi bokkeumbap).

While waiting for it to ferment, we went to watch World War Z! World War Z is a 2013 apocalyptic horror film directed by Marc Forster. The screenplay by Matthew Michael Carnahan is based on the 2006 novel of the same name by Max Brooks. The film stars Brad Pitt as Gerry Lane, a retired United Nations employee who must travel the world to find a way to stop a zombie-like pandemic.

 A really trilling movie that the first zombie that appeared made me jump out of my seat. Although the story line is a little predictable but overall the movie was an entertaining and fun movie to watch with friends. There was one zombie that really kept making me laugh.

Overall it was a great day out with friends. Really missed them during the time I was at Kelantan.
Anyways, tata~
