Feeling all giddy again

My course work is increasing more than ever. They are enjoyable, yet pretty much endless and your routine may get repetitive at times. So this coming weekend I plan to give myself half a day off to visit the Birmingham city centre Surprised

I don't normally go where ever I want without an objective, of course.
This time, I will first head to Waterstones and get 2 books:

Anthropic Bias: Observation Selection Effects in Science and Philosophy (2010) by Nick Bostrom

Sounds really promising. If to generate knowledge we construct our worldview based upon our evidence pool in a rational manner, this book looks the opposite direction. What if, unbeknownst to us, the worldview that we have affects the way we interpret our evidences?
This blue fellow will probably become one of my bedtime readings.

Kimi ni Todoke (From me to you) (Volume 1) by Karuho Shiina

A shoujo manga Embarassed, no but it's very light and cute. It is the first shoujo manga that I read and it just became by favourite. I can't get the whole collection at the moment, there just isn't enough space for me to put them. But I really want to have a shelf for this manga once my life has settled down at some quiet place. I would have a rocking chair by the balcony, sipping an Earl Grey while pondering the meaning of life or why I am even pondering about it.

Anyway, enough fantasies and back to Birmingham. So I am going to purchase these 2 books, possibly do a little bit of shopping, and I'll end this short trip with Topokki, a cute little Korean restaurant Surprised

I can barely eat anything that is even a little bit spicy, however, and that narrows down the Korean dishes that I can have quite a bit.
But I've always wanted to try Tteokguk (떡국, a rice cake soup), one of their rice dishes with chicken (don't know what they are called), and rice punch (식혜 (Shikhye), a sweet beverage).

A train ride home with full stomach and books that will occupy me for some time to come, and I'll be set to get back to work again on Sunday Smile
Now I am feeling like this is a more typical sort of thing that one would expect from a blog Cool

Those dishes look great. I love Korean food. I got to eating loads of those when I was living in Vancouver, Canada. I like it when they make their chicken soup with rice from scratch.

But where we differ is I like spicy. Surprising thing though when I went for a holiday to Vancouver in August was I found the Korean and Japanese food I used to like much too salty. Looks as though I prefer my own brand of spicy cooking instead. On Sunday I REALLY lucked out. I found a South African Peri-Peri sauce from Nando's - a large chicken fast food chain. And tried the medium Peri-Peri Sauce out, now that's spicy and really great. I'd hate to think how spicy the Hot Peri-Peri Sauce is:

Ahh, we have Nandos over here too Smile
One of my friends is really into spicy food and we went there together last year I think.
Only remembered getting some random burger from the menu as I have no idea what I should be getting, but my friend sure had his time with all the different sauces they have XD

Was it a chicken burger? As the Nando's I know serves up large chicken portions, like whole chicken, half chicken or quarter chicken. I had some when I was in Vancouver, Canada in August. My very first visit to a Nando's. Didn't wow me as much, but at least it was good value protein wise, filled me right up.
