The Rain in Spain falls mainly on the Plain

Not a very exciting week or weekend. Haven’t felt like dressing up and nothing seems to be right in the world of my wardrobe.

Happy Father’s Day, by the way.

My weekend has mostly been spent in a freezing ballroom. My jaw was clenched so tight because of the cold, which then gave me a headache, which persisted because I couldn’t unclench my jaw because I couldn’t escape the ballroom for too long. At least I got to hear some nice jazz.

Today, I tried some new noteworthy things: Spanish paella and pork knuckles. Food porn ahead.

Yummy good stuff. According to wiki, paella is…

Paella (Spanish pronunciation: [paˈeʎa]) is a Valencian rice dish that originated in its modern form in the mid-19th century near lake Albufera, a lagoon in Valencia, on the east coast of Spain.[1]

Mixed paella is a free-style combination of meat, seafood, vegetables and sometimes beans.

I believe the one I had was a mixed paella. It’s nice and just a tad salty and hits the right spot. Who knows a good paella recipe and wants to share?

Things I want to do next week:

  • work (because work = money)
  • watch the karate kid
  • watch toy story 3 (DON’T JUDGE ME)
  • check out Ambush at Mandarin Gallery (I wanted to check it out today, but got there too late- ’twas closed!)
  • FIND THE PERFECT WHITE SUMMER DRESS (at this, I would like to say, ‘WTF why is it so hard to find one in Singapore???!?!?’)
