After a great spinning class, I made myself a piping hot bowl of homemade comfort. Ground pork porridge (aka congee) with scallions, garlic and fried shallots. YUM! A perfect end to the day, without compromising my good workout! :D I'll consider making this more often. As a child, porridge was always seen as a meal taken when I'm sick. But as I get older, my appreciation for a good piping hot bowl of porridge is greatly appreciated!
The secret - use old rice! And I like to season the meat before cooking and throw in the rice after the meat is half cooked so the juices will soak into the porridge, rendering it tasty! :) And my favourite toppings? Scallion and a must-have, deep fried onions straight from the motherland!
So I went to CVS and on a whim decided to check out a self spray tanner. Lo and behold, my 1st attempt was splotchy and patchy. Hahaha..so much for spray tanning in the bathroom...Time to exfoliate!!! :D And perhaps next time I'll opt to go for a moisturizing cream-type or just go pro ;)
Either that, or I'll simply embrace my porcelain pale complexion.. :P
Ah, its good to have some quiet time. It's been a busy the past few weeks and I'm finally
alone in my apartment and I'm enjoying it.
A little packing, organizing, cleaning and pottering around the apartment is something I never thought I'd enjoy. Ha! But look at me now! Surfing Crate & Barrel, West Elm and Etsy.com for cute pieces I can add to my new home
I merchandise by day. I consume fashion & beauty by night. I live to eat/shop/travel. I'm Bi-Coastal. Shoes are my biggest weakness as are puppies & ponies. I never say no to Love & a good bowl of Laksa.
