super awesome holidays

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!

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!

But I exceeded the limit for fried chicken for the rest of the year.

Totally sinful.

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.
