All good things come to an end, but that also applies to this stupid video series from my Tokyo holiday. BBL, in withdrawal.
Tonight’s video features a walk around inside a Family Mart with other humans!
I think I’m getting used to making these. I might even be having fun. It always happens that halfway through these holidays, I think, “Hey I should keep making videos even when I’m back home!” But it doesn’t happen. Anyway, I think this is the best one yet.
With a brief followup on yesterday’s haul: the lobster flavored crisps were rubbish, and the Mt. Rainier coffee didn’t rot my teeth!
The tradition continues…
A little over a year ago, I was eating a KFC rice bucket (it’s popcorn chicken and a cream sauce over greasy Singaporean chicken rice for $4) when some friends on holiday sent photos of themselves by the pool looking trim and fit. Major mirror shame. That same day I started on a diet and ultimately lost about 10 kilos over the following months. Not knowing anything, I did the most logical thing and went with calorie counting. Over a few weeks and several conversations, I worked out that it was far better to eat protein-rich salads, embrace fats, cut down on carbs, and eliminate unnecessary sugars.

Tried out an Indian restaurant near work today on the occasion of a visiting coworker’s farewell (amusingly, he’s going back to India and another Indian coworker felt it appropriate to suggest this place for lunch — we suggested he was feeling homesick himself). It’s on Boon Tat street and quite good, although it’s probably best to come closer to 2pm; we stood outside for close to half an hour. I had the chicken tikka which was mildly spiced (if you’re a wimp like me and like to avoid discomfort).
