Finally I've stopped in at the 7-11 outlet at Yio Chu Kang MRT Station to grab a freshly made waffle. For a dollar you get a freshly made pandan flavoured waffle. Taken plain or with a choice of filling- chocolate, peanut butter or kaya. Taste wise? A little too sweet. But it's got a light airy cake-like texture uncommon for a waffle and that's a deal for a dollar well spent.

And a quiet dinner with mum at the nearby Ang Mo Kio Block 628 Market and Food Centre. Xiang Ji Porridge. It isn't the 滑粥 (cantonese style smooth porridge) but it's a thick tasty gruel that has a value hard to beat.  

Fish porridge comes at a price tag of $2.20. Imagine that. At least 5 slices of thick fresh fish- might possibly spanish mackerel, and various tasty toppings of some fried dough stick pieces, fried shallots, spring onions, preserved radish and a dash of pepper. No additional soya sauce needed.

I survived yet another dental visit. Today's visit saw me nowhere near death unlike the previous visit but cost me an arm. Next visit will probably cost me the other arm and legs. So anyway, I don't hope for dreary weather everyday but today's overcast skies made it a perfect day to walk home.

A five kilometre stroll back to grandma's included covering the grounds of the newly renovated Bishan Park II. Therapeutic me-time. It's been a good day of slow morning jogs of 6km at the Macritchie reservoir cross-country trail and a ten lap cool off swim. It isn't a lot but it's enough. Endorphins from exercise. Feeling awesome has taken a while in coming. :) 

Starting over. On living.
