What’s for lunch today

I’m studying for my Korean Basic Level 1 test tomorrow and I decided to do a quick post of the lunch I had today… Salad!

I didn’t post it on my (rather private) Instagram account because I decided to stay out of this social media channel until I finish reading the Bible. 

So there, good things must share! My salad made up of lettuce as base and five other toppings — steamed sweet potato, olives, egg mayo, cherry tomatoes and strawberries. I included grilled chicken breast for an additional $1.50, which adds up to $6.90 for this big box of wholesomeness. Sauces you can choose include honey mustard, pesto and sesame sauce.

In a CBD area, this would have cost more than $10! 


Don’t expect a fancy shopfront because it looks just like a random wholesale fruit shop, with some fruits on display on carton boxes — I guess that’s how they save cost. They don’t even have seats, unless you can grab the two small tables that looked like they were randomly placed outside the shop. Expect long queues when you head there during lunch time. I guess nearby office workers do know where to get a good deal. If you are interested to know where to get this affordable box of greens, here’s the name of the shop:

Hello, March

Hello there, March. Wanted to say hello before my blog grows cobwebs. Haven’t had a post since November last year! 

I really should try to write more often. Because I think writing in a blog helps me reflect, and when we reflect, we learn. Some highlights in the past few months:

1. Seoul trip with DR’s family (Dec 2016)

2. Birth of Jamie – Shumin’s little girl ( Jan 2017)

3. Learning how to manage less-than-ideal working relationships at the workplace, and in the process, becoming “thick-skinned”.

4. Learning basic Korean with DR – 안녕하세요 (I typed this using the Korean keypad, not copy and paste from online, ok!)

5. Embarking on a major work project that I would like to seek God’s wisdom on. It is exciting but the scale of it is rather daunting. 

Anyway, so my last post was my then upcoming trip to Seoul to DR and his family. It had been a good trip where I had my first skiing experience at Jisan Forest Resort! Skiing is fun, probably because I learnt how to stop my skis rather quickly (remember: adjust your legs in an inverted “V”, as if you want to pee). Hurhur. Photographic evidence below. 

This was me learning how to ski. The challenge for me was to go up the slope with those darn heavy skis… I really don’t mind going to a cold place to ski again though I must make sure I do proper warm ups. I had such bad aches after skiing… -.-”

Alright, signing off for now… I will leave you with a picture of my favourite drink in Seoul’s winter – hot sweet potato latte from Holly’s Coffee (about SGD$7+). You need to have it with almond flakes!
