I found it! A cheese slicer! So my breakfast yesterday was two wholegrain crisp breads from Ikea with sliced Norwegian brown cheese :D

If anyone is ever looking for a cheese slicer in Singapore; I bought mine at the supermarket Cold Storage, at sixth or fifth avenue or something. After a not so good dinner at Pizza Da Donato we went to this Supermarket to look for cinnamon. We could only find the whole cinnamon, so my search for cinnamon powder is continuing. The purchase of the cheese slicer had to be celebrated, so we went to buy ice cream at a place called Venezia. Two flavours – raspberry and dark chocolate – both delicious, and perfect together. They had so many flavours I wanted to try: mango, cherry, chocolate mint, macadamia nuts etc. So it is possible that we have to go back sometime..

So except from eating, looking for food and food equipment, thinking about what to eat, reading recipes, looking at restaurant menus and reviews, taking picture of food and blogging about food, what do I do? :P

Well, this week hasn’t been very adventurous. Yesterday was a normal day where i didn’t go on any sight-seeing. As usually I woke up with Desmond around 7.30 am. He starts work at 9.30, but has to leave for the bus at around 8.20. And then I usually don’t see him again before in the evening, around 7-8 pm. After he left I sat down with my crisp breads with brown cheese and the newspaper.

Around 9.30 I went for a swim, and swam 1100 metres. Then I showered, washed clothes and had a second breakfast, this time banana, muesli and cottage cheese. After that I sat in front of the computer the rest of the day, I had a lunch break, but that was it. I was reading news, looking for jobs, writing my resume etc. There is always so many things to check and read. Hopefully, later today I will send my first job application in Singapore.

Yesterday, I didn’t meet Desmond before around 8.30 in the evening. He was stuck in traffic on the way home. We went to the food court at the mall nearby and had a cheap and good dinner. I had yong tau foo. A soup dish where you choose the ingredients you want. So I picked different vegetables, beancurd, seaweed,  fishballs, and some other fish thing. They quickly boil it for you. And then they either put it in the soup, or you can get it like me: one bowl of noodles, one with soup, one with the different ingredients, and chili sauce and sweet sauce. I’ll take a picture of this dish next time. It’s good! We also shared a popiah, a big springroll, which I hadn’t tasted before, It was also very good. Then our plan was to go for a run, but it was getting late and we were very full, so we skipped it.

Something I was very excited about, was the German Film Festival 2010. It started on Wednesday and will last until next Sunday. So I was very disappointed when Desmond told me that most of the tickets are sold out. We planned to see a festival movie tonight, but then I guess we instead have to find a movie in the cinema. Any film recommendations anyone?

Tomorrow Desmond is having his first Norwegian class, 45 minutes with me. So I think I should start preparing for that.

Have a nice week-end everyone!! :D
