Five days #3: Winter or spring?

(+) Some photos, stories and memories that happened the past week, or the last “five days.” For me and G to look back for a moment, breathe and start another new week.

(+) 지난 일주일 동안의 사진, 이야기 그리고 추억들의 기록. 다음주가 시작되기 전에 잠깐 숨 좀 쉬고.

1302So the cooking more at home plan is still going strong. I like risotto, but find it very difficult to cook rice with a pan. I’m more used to whipping up rice in a rice cooker, which I also brought all the way from Seoul. So G’s in charge when it comes to any type of risotto.

집에서 밥해먹기 계획이 나름 착착 진행되고 있다. 개인적으로 리조또는 만들기 어려워서 G가 도맡아하는 메뉴 중 하나.

1303German food is heavy. This includes desserts. I’m more used to fluffier and lighter textures, but German cakes are very straight to the point. You want chocolate? You get a very dense chocolate cake, with chocolate filling, chocolate syrup oozing out and in, chocolate sprinkles and chocolate frosting. Ok, I exaggerated a little bit. The texture of the cake is never fluffy, it’s very dense and sometimes too much. Too sweet, too dry, too fruity. So I had no choice but to make one myself: a fluffy, easy and light chocolate cake. Note to self: Use better chocolate, not just anything lying around for snacks or hot chocolate. Will post the recipe after I try it one more time with better chocolate.

케익에 대한 사랑은 변함이 없는데 독일식 케익들의 특징은 뭔가 무겁고 퍽퍽한 느낌. 난 머핀이나 컵케익처럼 약간 공기가 있고 스펀지 같은 애들에 익숙한데 여기 케익들은 굉장히 헤비하다. 그래서 결국은 그냥 만들어서 먹어버림.

1305This was the weather outside my window around 9:00 a.m. on Monday. It was like this for the next ten minutes and after that, the sun came right up and it was as if nothing happened. Not kidding. Strangest weather ever.

월요일 오전 9시에 갑자기 우박같은 눈이 쏟아졌다. 눈이 오긴 올 모양이네 하고 있는데 한 십분뒤에 바로 해가 쨍쨍. 그러다가 또 한 10분후에 다시 우박이 오다가 다시 햇빛 쨍쨍. 날씨 이야기는 안하고 넘어갈래야 넘어갈 수가 없네.

1309I was out running and found a group of people taking photos of this tree. It was hell cold, so I don’t think it was spring beckoning or anything, but it was nice to see some life outside.

아침 일찍 뛰러 나가는데 사람들이 여기 앞에서 핸드폰으로 사진을 찍고 있었다. 아저씨 아줌마 오빠 언니 할것없이 다 팔을 쭉 빼고 찍고 있었음. 출근들 하세요.

1311음악은 자고로 비오는 날 차안에서 창문 닫고 듣는것이 제일 좋고 맥주는 운동하고 샤워 후에 마시는것이야말로 천국.

13010The lovely Stuttgart Opera Theater.

강수진이 하루에 발레 토슈즈 몇십개를 갈아치웠다는 바로 그 스튜트가르트 오페라 극장.

Happy Lunar New Year! 새해 복 많이 받으세요!
