Doenjang Jjigae with Napa Cabbage & Egg


by me

in my apartment

-Ermita, Manila-


Confirmed, the poached egg really does work (see generally 5.303 Doenjang Jjigae with Egg).

The other day, when I was explaining to a colleague that the vast majority of my meals are eaten in restaurants these days, she asked whether my blood pressure were okay.  Eating out doesn't necessarily entail junk food, but it does surrender control over preparation, high salt content being a particular danger, so the point was well taken.

Then again, home-cooking with packaged sauce bases isn't that much better.

My blood pressure is in fact somewhat high, but it's got nothing to do with food.

Preparing for a trip to Australia next week, some of the training materials that I'll be taking, including Addressing the Harmful Use of Alcohol, a Guide to Developing Effective Alcohol Legislation--get it?


  1. No I don't really get it. Is it an ironic reference to the fact that you're enjoying an alcoholic drink while going over your anti-alcohol training materials?

  2. FYI, WHO's stance is not "anti-alcohol," but rather it's against the "harmful use" of alcohol, leaving some space for small consumption amounts. (by contrast, we are against tobacco use entirely.)

    i meant that the high blood pressure is probably due to booze, not food. the "get it?" wasn't really supposed to be taken very seriously, didn't even think that anyone would notice. can't get anything by DC, my most intensive reader.

  3. That's funny. "Intensive" is not a word I would use to describe myself at this juncture in my life!

  4. where english is concerned, i;m sure that you'll be intensive until the day you die.

  5. I don't know, kids have made me scatterbrained
    The other day I actually caught myself in an email where I typed, "It's they're problem." The horror! God, the horror. I'm definitely slipping.

  6. its not the kids, its you're age.

  7. No, kids drain your mental acuity. If I didn't have kids I'd be way more alert

  8. maybe it's a mom/dad thing. moms seem to find kids more draining, maybe because they get more invested.
