Oh Look, Krill!

Oh don't worry. Whales don't eat clownfish, they eat krill.

Good food vs comfort food, a journey.

I realised that since I’ve met Dude, I’ve refined my palate somewhat.

I didn’t use to enjoy salmon, and would refuse to eat sashimi. But now, I enjoy salmon head in soup, pan seared salmon and especially raw slices of salmon. The only requirement that I have of salmon is that it must be fresh. Really fresh. I don’t know why most people can stand to eat salmon that isn’t fresh. Do they not smell the rancid fish oil that marks a not so fresh salmon?

It’s this scent that always turns me off from salmon. Some people say that I’m picky or have an expensive palate. I don’t. I just like good, fresh food.

Gong Cha vs KOI coffee, the one where I’m late to the party

Koi and Gong Cha have been around for a while now and I’m a little late to the party, mostly because these two bubble tea companies were not easily accessible for me, where I live. It was only when both companies opened an outlet near my work place that I had a chance to try both on a semi regular basis.

Of all the different types of drinks available, I prefer their coffee drinks as that are less likely to be overly sweet, even when no sugar is added.
