In case anyone's curious, there IS such a thing as too much dim sum...


And a good evening to you from across the globe after another GREAT DAY in the Lion City. Day 6 at work, and so far every day's been better than the first. Fingers crossed that this trend will continue!

So Sammy the Bull learned a very, very valuable lesson today - when you are hungry but still have to work out, DO NOT GO TO THE HAWKER STALLS FOR FOOD. As I'm sure I mentioned, the hawker stalls are the outdoor food courts in the Sing where you can get GOOD food for CHEAP. Case in point, I ate there TWICE today (and had my usual Sugar Cane Juice, for the record - which I WILL take a photo of soon) - once for lunch and once for "a snack." And whilst the first did everything I needed it to, the second was, well, less than ideal.

Here was the scenario: it was 5 PM. I was starving. I knew I had another 2 hours in the office and 3 before the treadmill. And I needed something quick. What did I go for? FRIED DIM SUM, BABY. And not just ANY fried dim sum, I went with the extra special "we just fried these in 12 hour old grease and filled them with a yet to be determined green vegetable and also yet to be identified type of meat" variety. And whilst it was guuuuuuuuuuuuuuuud (peppy cheekies - Terrier, that was for you...and Pauly Shore), 10 minutes later I felt like a BRICK was sitting in the middle of my gut. Seriously, it's now 10 PM, and I am STILL full from those 10 little soldiers.

Also, whilst I don't think it went straight to my dunlop, the large t-shirt at the gym was so snug I looked like Tom Price in his cycling gear during a criterium. I'm upgrading to the extra large tomorrow - otherwise I might rip through the damn thing if I sneeze or cough too hard.

Not a whole lot else to report from here, other than to say it's been a SUPER quick week. And best of all, MUFFIN WILL BE HERE IN JUST 10 SHORT DAYS!!!!! YAAAAAAAY!!!!!!

In gym news, Sammy broke 25 minutes in a 5K for the first time in a while, which was a good feeling. On second thought, maybe 10 pieces of dim sum should be my next pre-race meal. MattPa - any thoughts on that one?

Okay, that's all the news that's fit to print. Chat tomorrow!
