One of the plausible reasons why I never get hungry till 11am on a day when I don’t do manual labor is probably because I always over-eat at dinner the previous evening. On work trips however, I try to eat a little bit in the morning because I don't know what's happening and the only predictable sort of food I quite like can be found at breakfast. Very few things can go wrong with bread, eggs, cereal or porridge.
These few mornings at breakfast, I have absolutely no interest in the hotel’s rather extensive and appetizing buffet spread. The time spent eating and lingering over the food can be spent sleeping. Heh. So all I need is 10 minutes at the table for a chocolate roll, a glass of orange juice and strong black coffee. Then I head off for my 8am pick-up.
At today's meetings, I gleefully ate 2 curry puffs with the chilli padi. VERY NICE! It was a little embarassing, but hey, the snacks were tasty! I love curry puffs done well. There was also this green blob in a tiny cup. I was told it was kaya. I didn’t know what to do with that and I don’t like kaya, so I left it alone.
I managed to skip lunch altogether. WHEW. Lunch was all chicken, beef and rice. Never mind then, I rather not eat and sort out the stomach at dinner. So I spent lunch reading newspapers and all other matters of papers.
