day 1498 – set lunch 

missed the vendor lunch and learn because conference call takes precedence. they saved the extra catered set lunch for me after their lecture. the question is why am i staring at the pretzel bun chicken burger past 1pm and have no appetite?? it wasn’t going to eat itself so i proceeded to take a few bites. what i managed to put in my mouth tasted good, but i only made it through the carrots and half the bun before i gave up

day 1301 – self conscious 

not moving much and not being physically active has made me become self conscious and i’ve let it take over with my decision making. it’s only fair that if i can’t do what i want, it won’t get what it wants either. can’t help but feel undeserving so i skipped a meal or two and waited out my appetite. as long as i occupy myself, everything becomes psychological needs

when suppliers offer the entire design team nandos for lunch. it’s my first time eating nandos food and i was excited based on what others have said. after trying it myself, i wasn’t sure why there’s so much hype about their chicken. i guess i eat chicken all the time and my mom makes them really tasty. their food was just average; i find it a bit too heavy, saucy or burnt

christmas trees and decor everywhere, it’s all over my house too. i am reminded christmas day is only twenty two days away. the festive season is the time to spend time with family and friends, even friends that i haven’t spoken to since last christmas. the onslaught of parties and gathering and endless food is about to begin but it’s the perfect opportunity to catch up on what happened in between the three hundred forty days

day 1121 – team bbq

my softball team celebration bbq with endless supply of food and plenty of alcohol. i stayed away from that and designated myself as the cook in charge of making food; i don’t think i’ve ever stood in front of a grill for such a long time. it got a little crazy after some downed a few rounds of shots, while i did play a little beer pong before i called it a night. i went home really tired smelling like oil, grease and smoke, but it was a good teambonder

day 989 – date night

a nice sumptuous dinner and night out in the neighbourhood for reaching our first little milestone together. having connections really does help; hooked ourselves up with some good fusion tapas at torafuku. the restaurant is not located in a prominent area, the decor does not wow anyone with its interior, but eaters are drawn to focus on the flavour and essence of the food. it’s been one heck of a month and i only look forward to all the times we’ll share and all the memories we’ll create

day 920 – stomach upheaval

how a chinese new year feast can throw me off my game. i am feeling sick after eating this meal since my regular practice is not accustomed to the grease. i do not wish to eat another one of these meals for a while, my stomach prefers my meal prepping more than ever. i guess that’s why i’m a picky eater and all i’m saying is i choose my food carefully
