PREPARATION

  • Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil. Reduce heat, carefully add tofu, and simmer gently until slightly puffed and firmed up, about 4 minutes. Using a slotted spoon, transfer tofu to a medium bowl.
  • Heat vegetable oil in a large heavy pot over medium-high heat. Add kimchi and gochujang and cook, stirring often, until beginning to brown, 5–8 minutes. Add kimchi liquid and 8 cups water. Bring to a boil, reduce heat, and simmer until kimchi is softened and translucent, 35–40 minutes.
  • Add scallions, soy sauce, and tofu; simmer gently until tofu has absorbed flavors, 20–25 minutes (tofu will fall apart a little). Add sesame oil; season with salt and pepper. Ladle stew into bowls; top each with an egg yolk and sesame seeds.

jonketo rides #BikeMS 2011

I got out on my bike for the first time this season. The ride felt really good and involved a beer and a burger in the middle, so nothing to complain about there. I am going to try out using strava to track my rides this year during training. Let’s see how it works.

I didn’t have too much luck shooting the perseids this summer, but that doesn’t mean I didn’t have fun staying up until 5am both nights in hopes of getting that one perfect shot.

Here is a photo of a plane that I wished was a meteor.

It was my friends first time in Squamish this weekend, so we went by all the classics. I was going to just let my friend climb Viper, but was persuaded to try some new beta for the start. It works surprisingly well!

I have video of my friend using the new beta as well.

I tried to take some photos of fireworks over the weekend and I realized it was hard! Not to mention the bad location outside of gasworks with a telephone pole in my way, but it was hard just getting ready to shoot with the lens. It was fun and I took some ok shots, but I really want to get some better ones next year. I feel like I was shooting stars except I got more than one chance. Makes me respect astro-photographers who shoot events that occur less than once per year.

jonketo rides #BikeMS

I decided to ride the BikeForMS ride this summer with coworkers at Accenture and Avanade. I am in the fundraising and training phase still as I have two months until the actual ride. The fundraising experience has been humbling to say the least. While I did not expect my friends to not donate, their donations and willingness to trade services/goods for donations has been overwhelming. I have already increased my goal twice and hope to do it a third time. The reason I keep raising my goal is that throughout this experience I keep meeting people who have or know someone with MS. I knew it was prevalent in the NW, but I did not realize to what degree. Being able to touch these people’s lives means a lot to me and it is a good motivator to continue. For most of the people with MS they can’t even ride a bike, so doing so myself and raising some money at the same time is the least I can do.

If you would like to donate and support me in the BikeForMS ride this summer please visit my participant page and click the donate button.
