Alright none of it turned out the way I wanted it to be. You could probably tell by the lack of posts for two weeks. Almost immediately after the supplementary lessons, I got rather sick for a week. Then I left for a short break. I mostly rested at home and spent time catching up with people. It’s not the most action packed holidays and it is one of the happier ones too because I just took things slowly. The very brief walk at Anderson Waves is a nice end to this super awesome holidays I had. See you in school!
Squid Ink Pasta
It smells worse than dead fish. My lips and teeth were all black after that. I would say the taste was passable. It tastes nicer than it looks. But I got a kick out of eating something really strange for a change. According to research, squid ink is rich in protein and minerals. Plus, it combats cancer. I don’t know if this is worth it because that fishy smell is enough to make you lose your friends at the dinner table!
The other awesome thing I did was to have a steaming bowl of pork ribs laksa at the army market after running some errands. Pork ribs, prawns, cockles and all that laksa sauce – oh man, it was a fantastic end to this weekend. YUM!
Half a spring chicken. Trust me, it’s better than KFC.
But I exceeded the limit for fried chicken for the rest of the year.
You got to really careful reading this post because it is primarily inspired by a lesson yesterday. In the process of discussing the meaning of the word “bovine”, I shared with the class that I haven’t eaten steak for the last 15 years (and that was just a rough estimate). The truth is, I cannot stomach the thought or even the taste of eating a slab of meat. There is something carnivorous about it that makes me so ill and seeing that piece of medium rare meat oozing with meat juices instantly makes me ill.
