BBQ-ing boneless Bulgogi from Trader Joe's.

This stuff is pretty good. Not as good as the one with the bones, but Trader Joe's was out of it when I went shopping.

Making up for the lack of a decent lunch :9

*EDIT* I’ve been informed by one of my Korean friends that this is actually Kalbi. Bulgogi is loose meat.



kloh goes to White Castle

I have ALWAYS wanted to try White Castle ever since Harold and Kumar brought their fame west of the Mississippi and am glad I finally got my chance. Thanks to Google Maps I discovered that there is one just around the corner from the Marriott in Mason.

I got 4 sliders, fries, drink, plus 3 buffalo chicken rings and 3 ranch chicken rings.

I must say it's all as good as I thought it would be. This is one case where the high expectations were met.

EDIT: Since I'm not sure when I will be able to have these again, I had to go back for 2 more jalapeño cheese burgers. It's not exactly the model of efficiency as far as fast food is concerned, but worth the wait IMO.



Taking a new route to get Ramen today. #BMW #M3 #joy

Usually, driving to get Ramen is about a 10-minute trip. Here’s my normal route:
(enlarge for better view)

Today, however, the boy and I are planning to take a slightly different route. Sure, it’s going to take longer, but getting there is half the fun.

Live Oak Canyon Road is a favorite of mine to take every so often when I have extra time to get to and from work – again, much longer than necessary, but the scenery and twisties make the drive much more enjoyable. I haven’t really had a chance to drive Santiago Canyon Road yet so this will be a first in the M3.

Ramen and road trip. It’s going to be a good day.



Ojai Drive and BBQ with Andy

The boy and I drove up the coast to visit Andy in Ventura. He BBQ'd some ribs and put out an awesome spread. I felt kind of bad he went through all that effort, but it was well worth it. After lunch we took the M3 out for some driving through Ojai. The best part of the drive was some twisties on the way to Boccali's, where we stopped for some apple pie and ice cream.

Not sure I like the Flickr set integration using flash on Posterous, but I might as well give it a shot. Scroll through the photos above if you don't want to wait for the whole slideshow.

Here's a map of the entire trip (starting from the coast drive):

And this was the best part:

Here's an image to get an idea of the elevation change. The twisties mostly went downhill (right to left). The purple camera on the right indicates where the images of the car (halfway through the photo set above) was taken, and the purple pin on the left is where Boccali’s is located.

We had fun. Must do it again.
