  • Chicheti

    This evening we went to Chicheti, an Italian restaurant near Arab Street, that I haven’t been to since a birthday party two or more years ago. They do a very reliable pizza, plus desserts, plus I had a bottle of beer and several glasses of wine. Luckily I’d been climbing beforehand so I had… an […]

  • A day without coffee

    I’m not sure why I thought I would stop drinking coffee this week. I suppose my breakneck pace of travel has stopped now, and I’d been averaging well over two cups per day recently, and I was beginning to feel that caffeine was only a crutch and not a performance enhancer. I could have tried […]

  • Back on the meat

    I stopped eating meat on January 1st, 1997 (although just to be contrary, I went beagling for the first time that day too) and since then I’ve mostly avoided meat. A girlfriend unwittingly served me lamb stew at university once, I ate a pork sausage on a Eurostar journey to Paris (it was in the […]

  • It’s a cracker

    At our office Christmas lunch today, one of my co-workers asked me what a Christmas cracker was. I was surprised that she didn’t know, but then more surprised at myself for assuming that everyone would know what a Christmas cracker is, especially as my co-worker is Indian and if Christmas crackers were a Victorian invention, […]

  • Fake fake food

    Last night, enraged that I couldn’t find my book or my hat, I ate so many Ruffles that I awoke today with a body that, like Lot’s wife, consisted mostly of salt. But at some point in that frenzy of rage and beach-related angst, I found the book, Power Hungry, and at least I could […]

  • Lunchtime burger

    Today we took some colleagues who are visiting Singapore for the first time to Lau Pa Sat, a hawker centre in the middle of the the central business district, so they could eat chicken rice and laksa. Since I can’t eat either of those, I went over the road to the food court at Asia […]

  • 4 weeks of eating

    I remember reading psychological research from a few years ago, that purported to show that people who photographed their meals enjoyed them less than those who did not. I’m not sure if that is entirely true (or if it’s biassed by groups of dieters guiltily photographing their lunches) but there was a great feeling of […]

  • Daze without sugar

    I cut added sugar out of my diet yesterday, after stopping drinking coffee a week ago. It’s only been by cutting sugary food out completely that I’ve become aware of how much there is to eat at the office. There’s the inexhaustible supply of chocolate in the microkitchen. There’s the gorgeous little doughnuts served up […]

  • Pizza the action

    After almost a year and a half (since a dreadful bout of food poisoning from badly prepared pasta sauce that she then associated with a pizza), La Serpiente has begun eating pizza again. She asked for it today, and we were too tired to cook tonight, plus I had a migraine and pizza is the traditional pre-run […]
