at MK/CS’s apartment
with MK+CS, TL, JL
Our first ever Movie Nite, which we hope to organize on a regular basis — this time featuring Whiplash and St Vincent — with the same core group of colleagues in the division.
For the occasion, I prepared a self-service bibimbap bar. The inspiration was a set-up that I had encountered at Incheon International Airport several months back (see generally 5.231 Bibimbap). The flavors turned out okay, as bibimbap usually does so long as nothing goes disastrously wrong. However, every component was kinda soft and mushy, even the egg*, lacking a contrasting crunch/crisp that would’ve provided a bright lift to the texture. In any case, the arrangement worked like a charm in terms of service, where everyone could eat as much or as little as they wanted, at their own pace, a single bowl in lap and spoon in hand, on the sofa as they watched the movie, easy clean-up.
