So I wrote about my experience with the blandest bibimbap I’ve ever had. (see the picture of the bibimbap by clicking here.)

So I’ve been online, writing emails, checking for bugs, chatting with the Japanese developers (the game is originally a Japanese game, my company brought it over to the U.S.) days and nights… and I just couldn’t make the time to update my blog.
