Get a load of SPAM!
SPAM is sorta of a legacy from the American troops as they carried it around as combat rations during WWII - which probably explains why its almost a staple diet in certain Pacific islands like Hawaii, the Philippines, Guam and Okinawa. [You can read more at the tsogb link] Believe it or not, there's also a world-exclusive SPAM fast food outlet in Manila. A pity I won't get to try it this year (have shelved plans for a visit) :(
And now here's an article about the status of SPAM as a classy present in...South Korea. Bae Yong Jun fans, you might want to start investing in a few more cans of SPAM instead ;)

3 course meal...
Lunch - Salad (mango, prawn, lettuce topped with pine nuts) & Spicy tomato chicken & baked beans on rice.
There are simply too many fantastic photos at Flickr and I've developed the unsavoury habit of reading food blogs or checking out professional looking pictures of food just before lunch. Needless to say, my lunch always tastes delish - even if its only microwave-cooked noodles ;)
Mom has also taken to preparing Thai inspired salads with seasonal fruits - last week it was the leftover pomelo from the Mooncake Festival...and for dinner last night, we had mango. So lunch today was deja vu...but you won't be hearing any complaints from me!
The second highlight of today has to be the publication of my very first scientific paper in the Journal of Agricultural & Food Chemistry...woo hoo!

Have been busy setting up my Flickr photo website account....sowing my photos all over the Net ;) Its one of the best - perhaps the best? site if you have photos that you are super proud of and wish for all the world to see There are tons of fantastic photos posted there too - great place to gain inspiration and new angles for the next vacation!
Grew bored waiting for my samples to finish spinning yesterday. So I decided to play around with the coloured primer tubes and other stuff in the lab :) Sigh...really must get out there and practice what I learnt at the photography class.

Caught up with my cousins and all over the sumptuous meal; the highlight of which was the chilli and black pepper crabs :) I still prefer the version by Jumbo restaurant though! Last I checked, no one suffered any ill effects.
Mom is never short of comments ;P With 3rd & 6th aunt.
