Naked cooking is risky.

Yeah I think those are the american variations of other peoples foods. I'm pretty sure hamburgers are German. I'm honestly not sure about fried chicken.

Wikipedia suggests that American fried chicken is an amalgam of Scottish and West African techniques (the Scots deep fried chicken without seasonings, while the Africans pan fried seasoned chicken).

Hitting the slow season now. Schools back in. No more sold out every night. Kind of sad really. Their really is so much less for me to do when we are sold out, but it does have its ups as well.

So it is almost an american dish. I feel like any dish that merges multiple cultures into one and then loses its identity could be considered american.

So I was supposed to visit the Company Secretary at another train station to pass around some documents, then I just had an urge to check out the shopping mall. Good idea too – I found a shop selling trekking gear. I didn’t know there are now gloves that you can use your handphone with – since one of my pet peeves is my paws freezing over every time I take out my gloves to take a shot with my phone camera. Since I lost my leather gloves in my last Japan trip, I’m thinking of buying a pair of these funky gloves. It’s only 59-71 F when I get to San Diego beach, I’m just more concerned about windchill factor, since seasides tend to be very windy places.

One more plus for the shop. When I expressed interest in the gloves and asked them for the right size, the salesperson didn’t try to sell me the wrong size. Since too big gloves means they don’t keep your paws warm. They asked when my trip was, the prevailing weather conditions for it, and after I told them it was in October, suggested that I came back in September when the new stocks, with XS size came in.

So they expressed genuine interest for my product requirements and get a thumbs up from me for not being pushy. I’ll probably visit the shop in September, maybe giving them a call to find out if the new stocks have come in.

Oh yeah I think I've seen those. The climate I live in does not come anywhere near justifying those gloves.

I’m vulnerable to cold. Very vulnerable. Where most people would feel its pleasantly cool, I’d be shivering. The last time I was in a place at 59 F, but there was strong wind, I was shivering. My gloves are for travelling, not for being in Singapore.

Apparently people are drawn from far and wide to see how I can cut such flawless curves.

As I told the delivery driver yesterday "it worked at Machu Picchu"

Edit: It turns out using construction techniques thousands of years old today is considered ground breaking and new.

I guess everything is cyclical! Time to have the kids start on the pyramid in the backyard I guess.

Edit 2: I should probably make sure I'm getting my ancient cities right, Machu Picchu is the one where the stones are cut so each one fits into the other, right.

Edit 3: And mom said studying archaeology wouldn't apply to modern day jobs, besides being an archaeologist, I mean, which isn't like Indiana Jones, she'd remind me, shows her, I already had to slide under a closing garage door (which was actually more like Gravity Falls because I was wearing my Dipper pine tree hat) and dodge a rolling boulder this summer.

I used to wear a trench coat when riding my old bike(which was also stolen) to get in shape. It helped me work up a real sweat and I dropped considerable pants sizes.

I was bundled up like a Grey penguin and still shivering. I didn't wear Long Johns under my clothes because I just came from the plane.

Due to public transport being the way it is, most people drive to work and everywhere else, which cuts down the amount of physical activity they get. Public transport in Singapore wouldn’t get right at your workplace, you’d still have to walk to train station/bus stop.

So I suppose in America, if you weren’t taking active steps to prevent it, it’s fairly easy to put on weight…

But in Australia, I know a crazy auzzie who walks 20 mins to work everyday.

Oh and getting overweight puts extra strain on your knees(especially when you get older), which makes you not want to get out even more to exercise.

Is this considered as political? *scratches head*

On the one hand, that's a pretty general stereotype for such a huge country. On the other,

  • Yes, Coke is cheaper than water pretty much everywhere you go, and
  • Yes, a large portion of the country considers deep frying an art.

  • As for portion sizes, it's pretty scary how much they vary. In Albany, Berkeley, and San Francisco, if you go to a steak house you can expect steaks ranging from a 6 ounce filet mignon (about 175 grams) to a 14-ounce prime rib (roughly 400g); all perfectly reasonable. Yet when Shiro took us to a steak house in Fremont, barely 50 km south of us, the smallest steak you could get was 500g, and the prime rib weighed in at a whopping 48 oz (1.5 kg), with a notice on the menu that, "No, we do not serve smaller portions, as we cook on the bone to ensure quality."

    It would have been a far more believable lie if they hadn't served my "medium rare" prime rib well past medium well and into well.

    And Fremont is home to Claim Jumper, where even the salads are 1500+ calories, and if you order a "normal" meal (appetizer, salad, main course, dessert) you'd be hard-pressed to eat it all, yet it will easily top 8000 calories for a single meal.

    It was 100% free until it became "too big of a thing" and Microsoft bought it. Microsoft, determined to ruin everything in the world, started charging $15 for it, but allowed legacy players (such as my kids) to continue playing, as long as they signed up for a Microsoft account so that Microsoft could spam them with incessant ads.

    And that is why my kids, at the tender ages of something around 4 and 7, got GMail accounts.

    I can't eat more then 200g of steak per sitting. 250g if Im hungry that day, but even 100g of steak is sufficient to satisfy me. You might want to watch your fruits if I'm around though, those really DO disappear in a hurry.

    I can put away a lot of steak. 12-16oz is a "normal" steak for me (usually a NY Strip - my personal favorite). I can handle a 24-28oz without much issue though. I haven't tried for something as obscene as 48oz.

    Never managed bigger than 20 myself, and that took two sittings, half for brunch and half for dinner. 10 is a full meal on its own and 8 a strong main course if there's sides.

    Taking pictures is not something I think about doing. I really do not like having my picture taken (I will do it when absolutely necessary), but I really have a psychological aversion to the camera.

    Zelda, on the other hand, will take a lot of pictures.
