day 2161 – smoked salmon pinwheel

the best thing about coming home late is still having homemade food by my mom. these smoked salmon tortilla wrapped pinwheels taste is unmatched because it’s made with so much care. no matter what time of the day, my mom will gladly prepare food for me and make sure i don’t starve. i played up a big appetite after returning home from my sports activities and ate all of that

day 1971 – fried chicken

it’s crazy to say that it’s my first time eating fried chicken since highschool. i normally refrain from fried foods; i made an exception today not only because it is the holiday week, but also because i’ve never tasted the korean fried chicken everyone boasts about. it tasted delicious as expected, and the crunchiness between my teeth was also to a high level of satisfaction. i don’t know when i’ll have it again, so i’ll savour every lasting flavour of the fried chicken dipped into the zesty sweet and sour sauce

day 1383 – mapo tofu


my family is away in asia so we had our’s early. this is the perfect time to have some lomo time. i’m stuffed from our home cooked meal as tried our hand at making mapo tofu and siu mai. it turned out very tasty.  the only adjustments i would make for next time is taking out the black bean paste and the proportion of tofu to meat. we’ll be using each other as test subjects while i have the entire house to myself. the weekend passed by too quickly but it was a pleasant one

day 810 – rabbit roll

image

out eating late lunch and doing lots of catching up with a good old friend this drizzly sunday. ordered something new called rabbit roll which tasted pretty darn good. it’s a combination of shrimp, crab meat, salmon, crispy flakes, topped with sweet tangy sauce and masago all wrapped in cucumber instead of conventional rice and seaweed. i guess the good company and the food would take some of the focus off my ailing knee

day 793 – nacho feast

image

not much in the taco world is healthy but going in with an intent to stay away from as much oily fried food as i can – but this happened. i hope my digestive system and body won’t overreact too much after this feast. it’s been way too long since i had nachos i almost forgot how it’s suppose to taste like. it was flavourful and tasted awesome in many ways, but i will stay try to keep my distance

day 593 – freebie

image

it’s true dairy queen is giving out free kid size ice cream cones today and that alone is a good enough of an excuse to indulge in some ice cream. i almost forgot how good dairy queen ice cream tastes like and knew that lining up for it was well worth the wait, plus i don’t know many asian who doesn’t like free stuf, if any. guess where i will be headed tonight to make up for the extra calorie intake

day 351 – killed it at the gym

image

had a great workout today and couldn’t be more pleased that my knee felt really good even after all that i had done. it seems to be coming along in recovery as it should be. i then treated myself with a homemade blended blueberry protein shake – the best tasting post workout protein shake ever. mixing of milk and blueberries to add more flavour is definitely the way to go
