    [–] These mushrooms served on a log. xavier_x007x 27 points ago in WeWantPlates

    Hi! OP here :) For everyone interested, this was at a restaurant called 齐民市集 in Reel Mall, opposite Jingan Temple, in Shanghai. They also had a organic theme going on, so they also had a small market section selling different kind of vegetables, as well as some of their homemade baking :)

    The mushrooms itself cost 48 RMB, which is around 7.20 USD. I don't remember for sure, but I think our meal costed around 200 RMB (30 USD) per person, and we ordered meat, seafood, noodles, meatballs, tofu, etc. For a hotpot restaurant in China, I think this price is considered slightly above average.

    The entire log - if you don't manage to finish all of them in store, you are allowed to cut off the remaining mushrooms and bring them home.

    It was! It had a very strong and fresh mushroom flavour to it, and it went very well with the seasoning in the soup base I chose :)

    Yup! A traditional Chinese hotpot would be exactly like what you described, but recently it has become trendy for restaurants to offer a mini pot for each person, and that was the kind I went to today :)

    [–] Wanna One - 1st Mini Album '1X1=1 (TO BE ONE)' Album Discussion xavier_x007x 15 points ago * (lasted edited 3 months ago) in Broduce101

    i just.... really did not like the way they redid Always.... it's not even like how ioi's rendition of when the cherry blossom fade sounded really different so it was hard to get used to at first but the way they rearranged Always just sounds really off... and weird... to me

    [–] Yongguk & Shihyun - 1st Mini Album 'the.the.the' MV Teaser #1 xavier_x007x 15 points ago * (lasted edited 3 months ago) in Broduce101

    from the small part they sang in the music teaser (0.11), i think maybe the.the.the. is how they chose to stylise 또 또 또, which is pronounced ddeo ddeo ddeo, and means something like again and again and again.

    edit: it could also be 더 더 더, which means more and more and more. my korean isn't that good but after listening to the lyrics more carefully, i think this interpretation is more likely based on the context.

    [–] Are conveyancing contracts non-negotiable? xavier_x007x 2 points ago in LegalAdviceUK

    Wow, thanks for remembering this thread and linking this article to me! We have since found another property which has a ground rent increasing proportionally to the Index of Retail Prices.

    If you don't mind me asking, since you had previously mentioned that you are an experienced UK home buyer, how do you think the plan to ban leaseholds could potentially affect the sale of leasehold flats from this time period in the future?

    [–] WANNA-ONE's Daum fan cafe reaches 100k members in 2 days xavier_x007x 6 points ago in Broduce101

    holy shit that's really impressive given the comparison with ioi and other boy groups????

    (also really impressed by tvxq at #2 did not expect to see them there after years of relative inactivity)

    [–] [Homemade] Simple Stir fried Spaghetti with mushrooms and spinach xavier_x007x 1 points ago in food

    I cook the noodles in a separate pot beforehand, then run them through cold water after I take them out so they don't stick to each other during the time it takes me to finish preparing the other ingredients.

    [–] [Homemade] Simple Stir fried Spaghetti with mushrooms and spinach xavier_x007x 16 points ago in food

    Around a tablespoon of light soy sauce, a sprinkle of sugar, a generous amount of chilli oil because I really enjoy spice, and a few drops of dark soy sauce for colour :) I also had some garlic in there to add to the flavours.

    Thank you! I thought it might be a bit bland at first because of the simple ingredients, but it turned out to be quite nice :)

    [–] Reactions to Dongho's alleged sexual assault? xavier_x007x 19 points ago in Broduce101

    Yes, I do acknowledge that Dongho could very well be innocent. I'm sorry I probably should have made that clearer, I think seeing a lot of the hate already on the internet really got to me, so I wanted to give the other side of the story some support too. I'm sorry I should have been more fair with my post and made this point clearer.

    [–] [RUMOR] Kang Dongho accused of sexually molesting a female student 8 years ago xavier_x007x 88 points ago * (lasted edited 4 months ago) in Broduce101

    As someone who has been through similar experiences, I really understand why she might have stayed silent for so long until finally deciding to speak out now. Because the nature of sexual harrassment in cases such as this may be quite unclear when compared to a more forceful assault, and that sex ed in Asia is not as advanced, she could have felt a lot of guilt and blamed herself a lot and thought that she had let it happen by not protesting it more directly at the time. Then to see Dongho suddenly come back into the spotlight and remind her of something so devastating to her self-esteem, to me, is enough incentive to wamt to do something about it now. Of course, there might also be another layer of maybe "selfishness" - not wanting someone you know is capable of doing certain things be glorified and praised by the public, and even that I think is understandable.

    Another thing is that evidence for this kind of cases are really hard to collect. I had reported to the police too about what happened to me, but it was only a year after it happened, after I spent so long deleting and throwing away lots of what could have been used as evidence in order to forget about it. Witness accounts, on top of being viewed as less reliable, would also be hard to come by. Again, when the incident is not something as "explicit" as rape, it is often much harder to prove that it happened, even harder to prove that it happened against your will.

    I came to really like Dongho after watching Broduce, and I really hope that this is not true. However, seeing lots of comments blindly shielding Dongho through excuses such as "Dongho is such a kind person he couldnt have done it" "Dongho was so young" "She just wants attention" really hurts my heart, because you guys have no idea how much it could hurt when you suddenly becomes the one who needs to apologise in a situation where you were the victim.

    I hope Pledis thoroughly investigates this, and if the allegations are shown to be true, I would be very very disappointed in Dongho.

    EDIT - spelling, grammar, and wording. Also just to clarify I don't think that Dongho definitely is guilty, I really want to believe that he's innocent, but I just hope people won't be so quick to jump to a conclusion and start spreading hate because it could be so damaging to the girl if her claims are found to be true.

    [–] Interesting videos fans captured at the live broadcast venue for the last episode of Produce 101 xavier_x007x 49 points ago in Broduce101

    It's not a fancam so maybe it doesn't count... but basically someone compiled all the clips of seonho hugging and comforting his hyungs from the bonus wanna one videos and it made me really sad... I swear he was almost in every video, jumping around and smiling, the way he closes his eyes and rests his head on their shoulders when hugging his hyungs really tightly, trying to spread warmth and happiness like the purest and smallest child. The next time they all get to spend time like this, if ever, he probably would have grown too much for him to still be comfortable with sticking to his hyungs like this. Honestly I wasn't a huge fan of Seonho previously, but seeing this really reminded me of why I really enjoyed the show despite all its drama and shitstorm. The small insignificant interactions between the different trainees revealed their individual personalities and friendships, and those were the moments that touched me the most. I really really really hope that each of their dreams can be fulfilled in one way or another.
