I woke up at 9 AM in this morning and prepared cooking a beef steak which I had brought it at Tesco yesterday. Eunyoung and I usually like beef steak, but I haven’t try to cook it yet. Yesterday, I brought some beef and a source on the way back to home for today’s breakfast. I had sprinkled some peppers on both side of the beef and I waited for 1 hour for removing blood from it. After that, I cooked a steak and some vegetables such as a onion, a brocoli and a mushroom. Actually I haven’t cooked steak before, so I had to looking carefully at steak for prevent burning the beef. However, the steak was more good than I had expected, so Eunyoung and I could enjoyed a good breakfast.
Eunyoung wanted to buy a pair of socks, so we went out to the city centre after had a breakfast. Today is more warm than a normal autumnal day in Edinburgh. I wore less layer of clothes than last weekdays and Eunyoung and I walked slowly toward the city center. We suddenly met Shorty who is one of classmates of her college on the way. It was the first time I met her, and she seemed go to somewhere. After I said bye to Shorty, I asked to Eunyoung that where is she going. She said Shorty is going to the cafe in which exhibited some her works.
However, we found a strange scene at Princes Street. There was a big wheel next to Scot Monument and a small amusement park including a ice skating site. As I know, those amusements are things for Christmas, so I surprised when I saw them because there is so many days to Christmas.
Eunyoung brought two pair of socks and a skirt. She denied that she had any willing to buy the skirt even she had seen the skirt on the internet, but she decided to buy the skirt as soon as she saw it. Well, it doesn’t matter. The skirt looked good on her. Anyway, after that, we had a crepe on the way to the National Gallery of Scotland. Eunyoung had a good memory with crepe. When she have been in Paris, a crepe which she had on a street in Paris was tasty good, so we tried the crepe. But a good memory is just memory. The crepe which we brought beside the National Gallery was really bad for me and she said that it is the worst food we’ve had in Edinburgh. I agreed with her.
After we had eaten it, we suddenly met Eunyoung’s classmate – Sai and Laura – whilst looking at beautiful landscape of the city center. Actually I met Laura twice yesterday at ECA library. I didn’t have a good small talk with Laura because I was feeing awkward. I’ve always wanted talk with a native speaker, but it was really wasn’t easy when I faced with her. If I meet her again, I will try to make a good small talk.
However, we went to the National Gallery because Eunyoung haven’t been there yet. We’ve tried to go there sometimes, but we didn’t go there because of a bad weather or not enough time to visit there. There are many really beautiful paintings including Monet and Rembrandt. It is really a great thing that I can see these paintings whenever I want to see it.
Today I tried to another Korean food – Boodae soup: it is thick soup with a spam, a sausage, a onion, a mushroom, the Heinz Beans, a kimchi, a bacon, a minced beef and a Korean spicy source. I found a recipe on the internet and I really wanted to eat it. If I’m in Korea, I’ll go to restaurant when I would like eat it. However, I’m in Edinburgh now, so I have to cook it if I want to eat it. Although, It was the first time that I cooked this dish, it was so tasty good! It was really better than I had expected. And then, I was glad to add it on my cooking list.
