Teriyaki Chicken special that taste like oyster sauce chicken, some cauliflower + carrots and mutant chicken chunks, ice tea and a mandarin orange. Overall satisfaction: 5/10 Mao-style braised pork belly (毛式红烧肉, side of greens and tofu. Overall Satisfaction: 5/10 Gongbao chicken without the spice but lots of peanuts for texture, side of greens and kaofu […]

My first few canteen meals of 2011, during the first week back at work. I’m attempting to go easier on my carbs these days even though I love all forms of carbs. It doesn’t help that it’s freezing outside with subzero temperatures and I’m constantly hungry, but they all say your metabolism starts slowing down […]

One of the last few canteen meals for 2010…which were pretty good last week. they’ve been slacking off this week, I cheated and had chicken curry instead of a canteen meal. Chicken with sticky rice (new! and nice) with sides of winter melon and celery stir fry, white fungus soup. Yellow bun is corn bread […]

The food has been pretty good of late. Maybe the catering company is also preparing for their annual appraisal review for next year’s contract. We had 炒饼 (rice flour noodles sliced thinly and fried) the other day at lunch with greasy chicken skewers with some cartilage for a nice crunch. Stir fry of mixed vegetables […]

No one looks at this fellow at lunch, but he cracks me up. Setting the mood for our meals, we tend to look as enthusiastic as Mr M&Ms when we have lunch and sometimes dinner. Still nursing a bad flu so haven’t had the best of appetites. 辣子鸡without the chillies but spicy nonetheless, side of […]

I can’t wait to present my canteen diary project to those in charge when it comes to renewing the contract and proposing what we’d like to see more on the menu. The chicken fillets of late have been squiggy and I haven’t eaten much of it for fear of what they’ve been fed and injected […]

Forgot my memory card the other day, but I think the lomo effect actually makes it look better. Dumplings are always good, the side of fried glass noodles with bean sprouts are even better. I think the image looks better in a way, what do you think? (taken with my colleague’s S90. I kind of […]

Today’s canteen meal was a real bonus and I had to blog about it with immediacy (well not quite the VPN malfunctioned yesterday)! We had curry rice for the first time and it tasted okay, like those you find on the menu in pseudo Chinese restaurants in Europe. It’s usually called Singapore/Malaysian curry fried rice, […]

I have not been faithful to the canteen nor my life mantra of work/life balance. I have started leaving my computer at work which means I am no longer online once I finish work… and still I don’t gain hours. I don’t remember much of the lunch as I was half asleep having it. Sweet […]

I’ve neglected the blog for too long and my content is piling up, which defeats the whole purpose of blogging with the lack of immediacy. It’s 1am and I’ve spent 14 hours at work, but I am determined to practice the “what did you do for yourself today?” mantra for my work/life balance. I haven’t […]
