Bornga Korean BBQ

I was craving for Korean food, so we went to City Square, JB Malaysia for lunch on Sunday. You might ask, why go Malaysia? This restaurant has two outlets in Singapore – Vivocity and Star Vista. I am someone who can splurge on food BUT only on food that’s worth the money. The prices on the menu in Singapore are slightly too high for me. Due to the fact that I also have a boyfriend who can really eat, the bill will most probably hit 3-digits. I will just give an example, one plate of Samgyupsal cost $24 in Singapore but it only cost RM28 in JB (exchange rate 2.5, it will only be S$11.20). So now you know why I would rather travel to JB for Korean food, right?!

Ok let’s get down to the food part. I am pretty sure the standard in JB does not lose out to the standard in Singapore. When we were there yesterday, the Korean chef was walking around, helping out to make sure everything was in place. I saw a few Korean families in the restaurant too. We ordered 1 plate of Woosamgyup, 1 plate of Samgyupsal, 1 plate of Mansinchang and Chadol Doenjang Jjigae (this is a beef stew with rice). The barbeque comes with free flow of side dishes and rice tea.

Let the barbeque begin! Each grill is equipped with an extendable exhaust that vacuums the smoke produced while barbecuing. You will not have that BBQ smell on you after the meal and the shop will not be full of smoke too. The pork belly is fantastic, really. It is well marinated but taste light on our palate. It does not feel greasy at all. The service staff helped us barbeque and cut the meat; we just have to keep eating. We finished all 3 plates of meat and most of the side dishes. The beef stew was very good too. The bill was very wallet-friendly. I only spent RM129.80 (S$51.90) for all the food that we ate.

Bornga is definitely an above average Korean restaurant. If you are hoping to enjoy some good Korean food and do not want to burn a hole in your wallet, you can visit the restaurant in City Square, Johor, Malaysia. It is on Level 3, at the Inner City. If you do not want to queue, try to reach there before 12 noon on weekends.

《爱在灯火阑珊处》

在这雷雨交加的午后,我看着大雨疯狂地从天而降,黑沉沉的天就像要崩塌下来。这时的我被一集爱情速配的节目感动得稀里哗啦、泪眼朦胧。男生参加节目是为了找一位能让他心动的对象。女生非常勇敢地上台向心仪的男生表白。其实他们俩已经认识很多年,是非常要好的朋友,但一直错过彼此。如果女生没有鼓起勇气踏出第一步,他们俩还要兜多大的圈子才会在一起呀。

我在想,有时候,命运真的造化弄人。你爱的人爱着别人;爱你的人却默默地、静静地等着你。有些人说,爱情靠缘分。两个人相遇未必能相识;相识未必能相知;相知未必能相爱;相爱又未必能够留住彼此;就算留住彼此也未必能够白头到老。

有的人说,真爱难求。有些人在茫茫人海中寻寻觅觅那个自己所爱的人,却始终没找到。有些人转角遇到爱,几经波折,却始终回到了原点。到最后,冷静下来回首往昔的时候才发现,一直苦苦寻觅的人就在自己身旁,只是自己未察觉。很多人总说,要珍惜眼前人,可是有多少人能够明白。岁月不能倒流,自己的这出戏从一开始就失去回到最初的余地了。每一个人一生的剧本都是唯一的,无法改写,只希望你们能无悔的续演。

人生,疲惫,这才是真实的;坎坷,这样才能成长;错过,这样才会珍惜。听完一个故事,感慨一段人生。人总是在错过后才懂得回头看,但那错过的人已经无法再追回,曾经的梦也显得更加模糊了。也许某天某个人蓦然回首,会发现最爱他的她,就在那灯火阑珊处,等着他。放眼望去,如果现在你身边就有一位守候在灯火阑珊处的他(她), 请你珍惜吧,不要让爱在希望中等待绝望。
