So my Boyo has “moved in” to our “new” house. Yup, he’s firmly lodged into the semi-completed space – random items of varying use and interest floating about the place – his Gundam kits and paint already seem to be taking prime position – the position of being messily sprawled over his desk. Ever since we got back from Taiwan, we’ve been working non-stop on small improvements to the house – from adding a small hair-dryer-holding rack to hack-sawing an entire shelf out of the under-sink pantry, we’ve been tweaking the environs until we’ve become marginally more pleased with the fit-out.
No, we still don’t have a sofa.
On the upside, I am now the owner of one ridiculously large lamp.
Cliff’s classy socks and shorts combo.
Well, even without our abode being completed, we decided to hold a tiny little BBQ to celebrate the Boyo “moving in” – we haphazardly invited a few pals over, perched our tiny Webber BBQ on a stool on the upstairs balcony, using an old shelf as an impromptu tabletop (not the aforesaid shelf, a different discarded shelf), and started grilling random flanks of animals that we managed to purchase from the local Korean butcher.
Chinese sausages, on the grill.
Our local Korean butcher also sells wagayu, actually. Oh yes, and short ribs. Lots and lots of short ribs. Om nom.
The cook at work. Where we can stare out at your neighbours (our place is on a slightly elevated piece of land).
Kathy provided us with a generous serving of greens – carrot, sun-dried tomatoes, thinly-shaved cheddar dosed with a light olive-oil vinaigrette – delicious!
Beer, because what’s a BBQ without beer? Not a BBQ, that’s what it is.
Condiments of all forms – and our collection continues to grow – but not with Cliff around – where condiments are incitement to slather every item of food with three different types of Tabasco and rose salt. Oy. Also, hark! It’s a my retro, $2 carved bowl from Salvos. Doesn’t it a do a great job at keeping my saucy deliciousness together? And yes, that IS a robot in the background. I’m finding robots randomly left around the house. It’s basically robotville in here.
