Four things I’m looking forward to eating when I’m no longer pregnant and no longer have gestational diabetes. Beautiful soft blue cheese, crappy instant noodles filled with carbs and MSG, carb laden pasta (or more specifically a giant bowl of spaghetti carbonara), and peanut butter Lindt chocolate balls. Just waiting waiting waiting.
C is for carbohydrates, which I have to be very careful with at the moment due to my annoying gestational diabetes. I still have to eat them for energy, but can’t have too many or push my blood glucose too high. I’ve been experimenting with different types to what I normally eat (I’m normally a whole meal bread and white rice kind of girl) in different quantities. Tonight it’s a small portion of buckwheat soba noodles.
We went over to my parent’s place for dinner and my dad made beef ball vermicelli noodles. Great on a cold day.
One of my workmates is getting married in October and she’s decided to go to Japan for her honeymoon. We got married in October 2010 and went to Japan for our honeymoon as well. We’ve been talking about it and where my favourite places were to go and it’s brought back wonderful memories.
I’ve dug up some photos for this Japan series. It was about 6 months after I got the DSLR as my engagement present. I wished I had taken more time to get better photos, but there was just so much to do and see. I can also see that I’ve improved so much since then, but no matter how good photos are, they’ll never replace the images I have in my memory.
Part 1 is of Tokyo. Tokyo was such a bustling city, with amazing things to see where ever I looked. The people were polite and friendly, I never felt unsafe, and the food was just amazing. My first meal in Japan was ramen noodles in Suidobashi and I swear I would fly back in an instant just to eat these noodles again. I miss Japan and would love to go back one day.
Dinner tonight with one of my cousins at Noodle Kingdom. Spicy mutton noodles. So cheap and so tasty. And no, that wasn’t all just for me =p
Happy Chinese New Year! A great year of eating in the year of the dragon!
