Happy New Year!
 
A lot has happened since we came back from Kuala Terengganu in late November. First and foremost, Cat and I contracted Covid-19 whilst on our trip there. We were tested positive on 26 November 2021, since we were classified as Category 1 patients were allowed to serve our quarantine at home. Brendan was negative and self-isolated himself in his room, thankfully he had a bathroom all to himself.
 
There was a time when my SpO2 (or oxygen saturation) levels dipped below 80%, and Cat was standing by to call an ambulance, but I managed to pull through after a few days. We eventually completed our Home Surveillance Order on 6 December 2021 and submitted ourselves to a check-up at the local Health Ministry's COVID-19 Assessment Centre on 8 December 2021. We passed our check-up, given a letter to certify that we had successfully served our quarantine and was asked to continue our recovery at home.

How was living with Covid-19 for the first 10 days? It was like suffering from altitude sickness, gasping for air at every slight exertion, non-stop diarrhoea, and inability to consume solid food. Cat did not suffer as much, since her CT levels were marginally lower than mine. I lost 8 kilograms in the first 10 ten days, and a further 2 kilograms since then due to lack of appetite.
 
How was the recovery? Truthfully, we are both still not where we were a month ago. Cat's sense of smell is somewhat affected, and she quickly gets out of breath each time she vacuums hour home. For a time, her voice sounded like she had a blocked nose, although it has improved. Food still mildly tastes like rust for me and walking 100 meters at a time leaves me gasping for air.
 
Okay, let's move on to a more cheerful topic. We first came to Kang San Ae amid the Hallyu wave craze way a decade ago and have been coming back ever since to celebrate birthdays and other special occasions. P/S Cat celebrated her birthday a day ago!

We were supposed to come here last night to celebrate Cat's birthday, but heavy rain deterred us. We changed our reservations since it was New Year’s Day and all, and as soon as we got there proceeded to order the 1Samgyeopsal, 2Dwaeji Galbi and 3Maeun Jjukumi Bokkeum for good measure; and as usual Brendan ordered his favourite 4Kimchi Jjigae.

1thick, fatty slices of pork belly meat similar to uncured bacon
2pork ribs seasoned with a typical ganjang-based sauce or gochujang-based sauce (chilli pepper condiment)
3baby octopus mixed with spicy sauce and vegetables
4stew-like Korean dish, made with kimchi and other ingredients, such as scallions, onions, diced tofu, pork, and seafood

It was a proper Korean feast that came to RM157.30 (approximately USD38/EUR33). For the amount of food served we would say that it was value for money, given that Korean cuisine in Malaysia is a novelty. We do recommend Kang San Ea to anyone looking for an authentic Korean experience that is as good as it gets in Kuala Lumpur.
