View Sydney ... To the Beach & Flight to Australia on LaurenLolz's travel map.

I am just going to start of by say I am seriously tired. So Saturday, I accomplished .. little. I woke up, check out/in. The stupid girls in my dorm now, seriuolsy sleep till like 3 or 4. It's annoying as hell. Anyway. I went over to the food store, picked up some turkey, cheese, and bread. Then I walked over to WTC to use the computer, and bought tickets to the Sydney Tower and Aquarium. Then walked back to the hostel and made lunch. At this point, I did not feel good, so I went to lie down. About 4 or 5 or something I get a call from Mats, and he says to come hang out with them later. Ok. So I head over to there hostel, and they are telling about their roommate KC, who is from Singapore. Who showed up, out of no where, and was like.. do you like Asian food? Let me cook for you guys. So we're like okay?!?!?! Do we trust you? The kid was nice, and he's a chef.. we figured there's 4 of us, one of him, so why not.

So then we headed over to another hostel to use the kitchen. And like 5 seconds into this .. KC is tearin' it up. He has one knife. Pulls out a whole chicken .. starts cutting it up. Debones it with his hands ... and stuffs the meat back into the skin, rolls it up, wraps it in ceran and throws it in a pot to boil. Like 10 mins!!! Everyone in the kitchen is like ... what the hell is this kid doin'?! They're all making pasta and shit, and he's deboning a chicken. Then rice. Throws that on the stove. He pulls out a fish! What the hell. Scales the fish.. again, more on lookers. Starts filletin' the fish, rips out the bone with his hands, cuts of the head, places it all fancy like on the plate, and puts it buy the stove. Now, he's cracking eggs, for the rice, and chopping up scallons, ginger, and whatever else. Whips up egg fried rice. Going back and forth between the pots and burners and checking temps with his finger. At this point, we knew, this dude was for real. He put a plate of rice out for us to eat.. oh man.. it was AMAZING!!! So good. He puts another plate, and has the 3rd plate of rice cooking in the wok. He tries a little bit of it, and throws the whole thing it the trash! WHAT!! He said it was too soft, not good enough. What dude, we don't know, we'd eat it anyway! Pulls out the chicken, starts unwrapping that and cutting it up... Gets the fish out, throws some ginger on top and some soy sauce. And has another pot, of like boiled meatballs of chicken and fish. Seriously, this was awesome. Mats asked him, how much we would have paid for this if we ate at his restaurant. $70. FREEEEEE!!! For us! This kid was pretty cool, so to make up for it we go have a few beers. I was dead tired, so around 11, I headed back to go to bed.
