ANNUAL SIZZLER WORSHIP POST


No trip Down Under is complete without a gut-busting, free-flow salad buffet bar meal at Sizzler's, aye? Similarly, this blog as well as my very soul and physical being would not be the same without the imperative post-feasting blog post.

Prepare thy corneas, y'all. 'Bout to drop some serious food porn up in this bitch. Like SEX on deck. Unfff.

ok i need 2 st0p


DEATH BY SALAD.

Seriously doe the variety of dishes all taste amaaaazing and you can only imagine how filling it all is, what with all the fibre and stuff.

Really went all-in on the unlimited cheese and bacon bits TEEHEE. Sundried tomatoes were A+, too. Those things aren't cheap at all, so obviously I had to help myself to A Heaping.


complimentary CHEEZ TOAST appetizers!! sorry the picture is so butt fucking ugly lol but rest assured that it was nothing short of crunchy, aromatic, and oh-so-cheesily DELISHIUS <3 (may i interest u in viewing the pic of it from this post instead)


My main dish: grilled chicken with swiss cheese, bacon and onion tomato relish.

It was ~aight~ I guess but I cannot for the life of me believe that they would just serve me da tomatoes in that state.......like. Cmon fam. They ain't even CHOPPED, much less diced!! Wth is this chunky mess of GR0SSNESS.


My lil sis with her delectable kid's meal nuggets.

You can really tell that everything on her plate tasted awesome from the way God himself decided to bathe it in love and light.

Sizzler's nuggets: one of the best nuggest I've ever tasted, hands down. Something about their crunchy and flavourful breading is just phenomenaaaaalllll~~ <3


Tried to be my own Mexican cuisine master but I failed. Oh, how spectacularly I failed.

Nachos were on POINT, as always. Due to the sheer deliciousness of the tomato basil salsa + shredded parmesan, which no one would be able to fuck up anyway.

The colossal dollops of sour cream and VERY non-avocado-containing guacamole though.......


I also don't know wtf I was doing layering all dem jalapeño pieces in my beef and cheese taco. Like. Forreal, you eat a bunch of jalapeño-filled sandwiches from Subway and you suddenly think that those piquant little shits can do no wrong. But my creation was SO FREAKING WRONG!!!!!!! /SCREAMS/


Desserts provided a good recovery, coz they were pleasant all around~~

Chocolate mousse and salted caramel panna cotta with a nice mug of cappuccino, woohoo!

I really am not a fan of coconut shreds, man.


Scooped up from a new batch of piping hot apple crumble fresh from the kitchen, with some vanilla soft serve.

Bruh.

GET IN ME

我会好好的。

不要说你爱我,你想我
don't say that you love me, that you miss me
如果你的心里没有这么做
if it's not true within your heart
只是勉强的敷衍我
reluctantly just to pacify me
我知道了会很难受
i'll be deeply hurt if i find out

我要你默默走,不回头
i want you to leave quietly, without turning back
我会清楚明白你要的是什么
i'll understand clearly what it is that you want
不许勉强的安慰我
no need to force yourself to console me
说奇怪的理由
by telling me strange reasons

到现在还是
up til now, i'm still
深深的,深深的
deeply
爱着你
loving you
是爱情的,友情的 都可以
be it of romance or friendship

那是我心中的幸福
it's the bliss that lies within my heart
我知道它苦苦的
i know that it feels bitter/difficult

the impact of revisiting a song that was first introduced to your life during childhood.
usually not by choice.
maybe your parents played it in the car long road trips,
maybe an older sibling was blasting it on their walkman and you listened in because you had yet to know any music of your own discovery.

these mandopop songs were brought to my life courtesy of my cousin, 8 years my senior.(coincidentally the same age gap i have as my little sister)
he hung around so much, we practically grew up together and he was like a brother to me.

throughout my childhood and pre-teen years, (his adolescence)
he listened to so much great music in my presence.

i absorbed it all like a sponge.

2001, 2002, 2003 and so on. for about half a decade


thank god for technological advances now, how easy it is now to google a certain string of lyrics and find out about a long forgotten song i used to constantly have stuck in my head

this cyndi wang track, for example
is so tragic lol i can’t.


the lyrics are beyond beautiful. i always feel that chinese songs are akin to poetry.
how do a small handful of characters and single-sounding words come together to sound so perfect,
yet hold so much emotional meaning and colourful stories behind them??

makes me wish i was that much fluent in chinese to be able to create such art.

ok i’ve rambled far enough


pls enjoy this touch of emo love song goodness lol

listen to the song too or i’ll beat you with a bat simply coz it’s a gr8 little tune and i highly recommend it but no biggie if you choose not to!!1

note: somewhat irrelevant but kpop taught me that u don’t need to experience love to produce/perform love songs. those idol group members aren’t even allowed to date, ffs.
anyway. i wonder if this applies to mandopop artists as well? hehe

i know it for sure doesn’t mean that i can’t belt it out with more emotion than a thirsty hippo 1 week before its period*, despite my never being in love before. ever. in my life.

:’))

ok bye

*horrific analogy. i’m sorry lol idk what i was thinking

SMTM 5: Gil + Mad Clown

These 2 are so gosh darn adorable on the show, ALWAYS supplying the laffs amidst hip-hop excellence and intense K-variety drama. Obviously I had to do a lil tribute of my fave moments lol


Before we start:

Check out Gil's musical genius in 눈물 (Tears), one of my all-time favourite ballads. Your heart will BLEED the fuck out. English subbed music video available!!

Some choice Mad Clown offerings include Stupid In Love (VERY emotional, you will cry) and Fire. And, of course Without You, featuring Hyorin my queen. And which I already wrote a whole post about back in July 2015 lmao THE LOVE IS REAL

K, now that I trust the above tracks are looping in the background as you read the rest of this post, lettuce proceed! :D




FUCKIN SAVAGE



lol



GET REKT!!!!!!1



Jessi having absolutely no chill as well lmao

That collab was FIRE tho!!!!!!!!! holy shit

Gunhee dug deep into the pain of his failed relationship lol damn





Same tbh HAHAHA



How fuckin cute can Mad Clown get tbh


This is Mad Clown expressing how grateful he is for the chance to produce alongside Gil as a team, coz he used to listen to LeeSSang's music from way back when Mad Clown first started his hip-hop career.

Touching stuff, yo.


Followed by an awkward high-five attempt. OF COURSE lol
