Hello, everyone! Thank you so much for supporting the My Korean Boyfriend blog for a year! It means so muh to me and Jimmy! However, I’m closing this wordpress blog now ‘coz we’re moving to a new domain! That’s right! We’re now on mykoreanboyfriend.com. We’ll see you there, loves~
I am neither a self-proclaimed foodie nor do I have a background on anything culinary-related but I must say that one of my favorite pastimes with the boyfriend is eating out. Honestly, prior to meeting him, I didn’t really have a knack for Korean food. I’ve always had this impression that they’re either just bland or just spicy. No in-betweens. No gays.
But he has since introduced me to the wonderful world of Korean cuisine (but my mom’s Filipino dishes are still more amazing IMO) and because we really eat out A LOT and Jimmy has literally been to almost every single Korean restaurant in the metro, I thought, it might be a fun idea to review the restaurants that we have tried! Maybe other Pinoys or tourists would want to know more about those as well…
Disclaimer: This is not a sponsored post and everything is based on OUR opinion and personal tastes.
And the lucky resto that we have chosen for our debut review is… PALSUN KOREAN CHINESE RESTURANT. Yup, you’re not alone. I didn’t know there’s such a thing as Korean-Chinese cuisine either.
Palsun Chinese Restaurant. Sorry but they don’t sell siomai and peking duck.
And for all the restos that I’ll be writing about here, I’ll be featuring a “featured dish” (redundant much?). Today, it’s none other than the famous 짜장면 (Jjajangmyeon aka black noodles).
Because when eating black noodles, it’s imperative that you try to look cute, even if it’s annoying. That’s like… tradition.

Everyone in the country knows who Miriam Quiambao is. Aside from the fact that she was crowned 1st runner up at the 1999 Miss Universe competition, she’ also a host and an endorser, not to mention, one of the most elegant women in the industry. If you’ve been living here in the past 10 years, you would know who she is. Well, maybe not if you’re Korean… much more if you don’t watch local TV.
And so that’s the premise of this post. Earlier today, we shot a Krimmy Couple video blog to celebrate our first “couple run” and somewhere during our “spiels”, Miriam Quiambao was mentioned (topic was about which is better, North or South and Ms. Quiambao’s from Lagro, bitch. 5 minutes away from my house). And Jimmy was like… “WHO’S THAT???” And I was like “HOW CAN YOU NOT KNOW HER???”
Fast forward to about 30 minutes later, after our run, while we were at the Media tent.
Jimmy: Wow! Jagi (자기 – sweetheart/honey)… who’s that ippeo (이뻐 – pretty)? Is she a celebrity? *points at a woman*
Kring: Where? OMGGGGGG!!! That’s Miriam Quiambao WTFFF. O___o
Kring: I was just talking about her while we were shooting!!! The Miss Universe from Lagro and UST!!!!
Dear destiny, you have pwned us.
Guess who’s ready for this Sunday’s run!!!
Now we finally have couple singlets! Whoohoo!
So the Krimmy Couple will be running at this Sunday’s Globe Run For Home. We haven’t done ANYTHING athletic together (wait, except maybe that time we played basketball for 15 minutes at his camp before I said “Fuck it! You’re cheating.” LOL when I actually just suck at it and I got tired already). So I’m super excited about this. I’m even thinking of doing another video! ^____^
Okay okay, that title is kinda misleading but it is true that I’m on Chalk magazine’s March 2011 issue. It’s a big deal for me, mmkay? Much thanks to the Krimmy Couple’s good friend (and awesome make-up artist), Carla Avancena for featuring my photo on her own feature. So it’s only like a passport picture and you prolly won’t even notice it if you blink. But I don’t care. I was still on a magazine, yo!
Also, the reason why I put this here instead of on my own funnysexy blog is because that said photo was taken by the namchin. I’m so proud of you, too, bebe! Did I tell you he’s a “good” photographer? No? Oh.
That’s meeeeeeeeee~ On Page 63!
Hey, guys! Wuzzup? How’s March treating you so far? Anyway, last night, Jimmy and I attended one of my mentors, Ma’am Faye Martel’s birthday celebration at Blacksoup Cafe and there was a free photo booth so we gave it a try. Pictures turned out kyot! And though I rarely photoshop pictures (mainly because chimpanzees have better PS skills than I do) but I played around with these shots. Just added vignette and and tweaked the levels and it’s th first time that I’ve done that! Not bad, huh?
Hope you guys like ‘em!
Those speech bubbles CLEARLY represent our values in life.
Okay so I haven’t blogged here in a while. Apologies, my friends… I was busy with uhm, hmm… err… I dunno. I’m not exactly busy. I just didn’t have anything to write about until now. Anyway, Jimmy’s back in Manila after being a prisoner in Lipa for two months. However, it’s not like it makes any difference. He gave up his condo in Taft already and now stays with his dad in…. BF Paranaque. Have I mentioned before that I’m from Fairview-Novaliches? And that that means we’re technically in a long-distance relationship? Yes, bitches. His house is 3 hours away from mine. FUCK OUR LIVES INDEED.
Anyway, that’s not the point of this entry. You see, more than a week ago, the boyfriend bought an iPad and over the last couple of days, I got a chance to play the games such as Cut The Rope, Angry Birds, Fruit Ninja and of course, Plants vs. Zombies. AND NOW I’m ADDICTED TO THOSE GAMES!!!! Grrrr… Sparttaaaaaa!!!!!!
You get addicted to this shit enough, you turn into a zombie your self. My photoshop skills pwns your face.
