Why, hello there!
Long time no talk. I need to fix that.
Last time I posted, I was still in San Francisco waiting for my flight to Hong Kong.
I arrived in HK without a hitch (minus some turbulence over Japan – which I feel has been getting worse over the years..) and pretty much have been crazy busy during the day and then when I finally make it home at night I’m too jet-lagged to blog because I’m so incredibly sleepy and cannot stay up past 11pm. Two nights ago I finally stayed up past midnight, but it was because I didn’t get home until a little past 11pm. Otherwise I’m sure I would’ve been in bed by 10pm.
I arrived to a gorgeous evening in Hong Kong, around 6:30pm just before the sun began to set.
Busy times means breakfasts and lunches have been quick and easy. The first morning I was here I was craving something warm and made oatmeal with whatever else was in the kitchen.
I ended up finding and apple, chopped and cooked in a small pot with a tiny bit of water and generous sprinkling of cinnamon until softened. Then I cooked up my oats in some almond milk, topped it with the apples and added some drizzly roasted almond butter. It’s been so long since I’ve had oats and it hit the spot!
Another morning I had some almond butter over a baguette that I picked up from L’atelier de Joël Robuchon which was preeeetty delicious.
Wouldn’t it be wonderful if baguettes had the same nutritional value as broccoli? But its doesn’t. Womp womp.
And lunches have looked very much like this.
Tuna and/or veggie salads from Pret. Both because it’s quick to eat and because lately it has seemed harder to eat a balanced diet. Lunch seems to be my best bet in sneaking in veggies.
Last night I left this scene behind and headed back to the airport for a midnight flight.
And now I’m over half way to Rome (7 hours down – 6.5 more to go!) where I’ll be spending a night before taking the train over to Civitavecchia - the port for Rome – tomorrow to embark on our cruise. I’ll be publishing this once I touch down and find internet.
I’m looking forward to some good italian food at one of my favorite restaurants here tonight and of course, gelato! I just hope I can stay up late enough for dinner since Hong Kong is 6 hours ahead of Rome and I can’t seem to settle on a timezone yet. Our plane lands a little after 7am so I still have a full day ahead of me. Must find some caffeine today!
I’ll try my best to continue to update, but I’m not sure how the whole internet situation is yet. So hopefully I’ll see ya sooner than later!
Do you get freaked out by turbulence?
What have you been eating for breakfast or lunch lately?
