Hi! I'm trying again. Sorry for the trouble! Well, I thought your story about the connotations of yakiniku was interesting. :D I hadn't heard that before. It made me giggle because ... guess what kind of restaurant we went to for our wedding dinner? Yes, yakiniku! We had reservations for a good restaurant, but they lost our reservations! (>_<) (And they wouldn't seat us, even though we were in our wedding outfits still...that's bad service..!) Anyway, we wound up going to a nice-looking yakiniku place nearby. LOL! I thought it was a funny choice at the time, but maybe it was a good choice...

You're more than welcome! I'm so glad that you finally made it here.

So basic and primitive, yet great a choice, I'd say. I'm guessing you unconsciously made the right decision. ;-) Had I been in that situation, I would've definitely stained my wedding outfits with lots of gravy! Anyway, you made your wedding day a really memorable one. Thanks for RTing my blog on Twitter. Looking forward to your frequent visits.

Cravings for Open Flame

The article What's behind America's love of barbecue? I encountered while surfing online magazine Websites this morning has kindled my drive for giving further thoughts to my first Quick Write product. Felisa Rogers, the author of the article talks about why American people love barbecue so much attributing their cravings for this outdoor dining event to several factors with historical, technological, and human perspectives. One of the rationales discussed in the article that attracts my interest is the remark by James Beard which goes, "Eating outdoors is one of life's finest pleasures. It is not just a trick of the imagination that makes food smell and taste better under blue skies or under the stars. The fire in your grill and the freshness of the air add savor to every dish, whether it is served in a patio, a back yard, a picnic grove or on a stretch of sand or grass on lake, stream or ocean." I can’t agree more with this argument, especially regarding the part that the fire in a grill adds savor. Please don’t get me wrong, my dear readers. I’m not a pyromania or anything! This will soon be a relatable notion of yours, I believe, only if you recall a campfire on one of those school trips. The flame burning under the black night sky made you calm, relaxed, yet vitalized, didn't it? I’m kind of intrigued by the allure of a burning flame and why it works that way. Reminder; I’m not a pyromania!

In Quick Write 1 "Korean Barbeque", I state that Korean barbeque is a very primitive style of dining in a sense that raw meat is to be grilled over fire, which brings back us to the times when humans used to hunt prey, cook it over fire, and devour the meat in a dark, narrow, yet cozy cave. I conceive that the dining style of Korean barbeque somehow evokes our instinct that has been long dormant and left unattended, but surely exists deep down. Grilling what we’re going to eat over a flame is a basic and primitive way to prepare food, and thus, could allow us to become basic and primitive as well. That’s why, I assume, there has been a cliché that men and women who dine at a Korean barbeque restaurant have already gone "physical", a synonym for being basic and primitive, at least in my own definition. Oh? You’ve never heard of this? Sad, it must be what you ever call a generation gap! I remember this fishy-slushy theory was prevalent during the Bubble-Era when people were maddeningly spending their money on food, clothing, and whatever was supposed to be "valuable". Anyway, it seems to me that an open flame does affect human mind and awaken our feral instinct that has been tamed in the course of civilization. Whether it’s outdoor American-style barbecue or indoor Korean-style barbeque, we’re definitely drawn to the open flame dining style which gives us a legitimate reason to be soothed and bewitched by its instinct-provoking allure.


Should've been a romantic tune like "Eternal Flame" by The Bangles? Well... it's more like me, and is still very romantic!
