January 19: List 3 foods you ate today.
1. Hard boiled egg: I don’t usually eat eggs, but when I do they are either hard-boiled or scrambled. I’m a bit of an egg myself —white on the outside, yellow on the inside. I think I must have been born in Asia in a past life. Anyone who knows me will tell you I am more Thai than farang…..in many ways. After living in Asia for so long, I eat comfortably with the absence of a knife, prefer to sit on the floor, cringe when others wear their shoes inside, and live happily in a shoe box.
2. Cheeseburger: I can’t believe I am admitting this. I wanted to order the healthier choice –the chicken burger, but my friend had already ordered that. So, in the back of my mind I was thinking that if the cheeseburger is gross, I will convince him to swap burgers. Anyhow, I ended up enjoying every juicy bite of my cheeseburger.
3. Soft eating liquorice from Australia – strawberry flavoured: I went to a movie. That’s my excuse. I’ve always loved liquorice. My mom used to mail it to me when I lived in Thailand. Then I discovered soft eating liquorice in Bangkok. That became my new sweet addiction, and I am sure it made my mom happy! She no longer had to spend $20 to send me some Twizzlers. So, as I was enjoying the imported liquorice last night, I was getting sentimental recalling my nights in Bangkok, curled up in my futon with a good book, and my foreign treat.
