Eating, Running & Living in Singapore
Eating Food, Glorious Food
It is no surprise that I find myself obsessed with food – after all, I am a Singaporean. We are a people who hold animated conversations about food while we are eating, who would comb the island far & wide chasing the promise of great food!
I find myself faced with the challenge of cooking for four people with very different palates. Being mostly vegetarian, it is interesting feeding Carnivorous Husband & Daughters.
Running out & about Singapore
Loving Husband & I joke that we run so that we can continue to eat the things we enjoy. The reality is that our metabolisms are not what they used to be and so we help it along any way we can. That said, we do enjoy being out there and hitting the pavement, albeit very slowly in my case. I also enjoy running for the Me-time it affords.
Living the Reflective Life
The Instagram & WordPress communities have transformed my thinking about my approach to food, running & to a larger extent, life. I have become more reflective and purposeful in the things I choose to do each day. I choose to leave a pile of laundry so that I can colour with Younger Daughter. I choose to heat up leftovers instead of cooking a complicated meal so that I play music with Older Daughter. I choose to give up a lazy evening watching a movie so that Loving Husband & I can run together. It’s all about purposeful choices.
In the attempt to give back a little of what these communities have given me, I have committed to this blog so that I may share what I have gained and hopefully, to encourage someone else on their journey.
Come along for the ride?
