Since I have been feeling under the weather, I have not gone to work for 3 days. In fact, I haven't even left my apartment. It was good that before I became a hermit, I "stocked up," as much as a single girl with no stove can, on food. I had plenty, until today. So on the third day, I went to eat and buy some more food.
When I returned there was this note on my door:
(I didn't answer because I was at the store buying food.)
I ran down to the manager's office, but she wasn't there. Her office was open and I saw my bag on her desk with my name on it, so I left her a note telling her that I took it.
I opened the bag up and took everything out and got ready to eat, even though I had never had it before.
The main dish is the biggest one. It is actually huge, in fact, I could only eat half and I was really forcing myself. The main part is a rice porridge, kinda like oatmeal, only made of rice. It is topped with dried seaweed, green onions and shitake mushrooms. In the porridge, though, is shellfish like mussels and clams. It was very delicious, but they give you more stuff. That little soup on the right hand side is cold, it tastes like radish and garlic. The small dishes, at the top are radish kimchi, marinated beef (which tasted like beef jerky), and chili paste. I think because the dish is on the hearty, more bland side, each of these dishes really "kick it up a notch." However, I happened to like the porridge by itself too.
Just when I think I REALLY hate my job, they do something nice like this and I have to go back. :)
