When Hunger Strikes….

on May 30, 2015

When hunger strikes for me, the simplest of meal is always the most delicious!

I usually eat my only meal at 4.40pm not exceeding 5.30pm latest (possible when I am off work schedule).

Today I am ravenous by 4.30pm as I did a long walk from my car park to the event hall I was to attend an event today.

I had wanted to doggie back my “dinner” from the hawker stalls or make shift eating center on my way back.

The usual one is undergoing major renovations to enable a new wet market for produce and an eating center

But by the time I reached the center of this make shift area, 90% of the stores were closed and 10% of what was left opened, sold food that was unappealing to my palate πŸ˜‰

On reaching home, I rummaged my trusty fridge and found my left overs (actually extra portion) of brown rice, 2 slabs of fish cake and my egg omelette panfried with tomatoes and veggies.

Exactly what my stomach needed as I got the stove going for steaming all this and my Campbell’s cup of soup πŸ˜‰

In 10 minutes my meal was ready and boy oh boy, it was a feast to me..Yummy to the last morsel as I ate up every grain of rice and slurped my instant soup!

Yup! When hunger pangs hit, I appreciate my food even more. At this point, I am reminded of the less fortunate; Nepal quake victims and Rohingya migrants.

Whilst I have a choice of meals and the ability to eat as extravagantly or as simple like today, they have none – other than what they can get their hands on or rations donated by Mercy Relief.

I  am blessed. My simple meal tasted 5 stars and I am grateful for affording it πŸ˜€

    I don’t like it when hunger strikes at night. I am thinking of anyway to strike back at hunger without eating a lot….You know it’s almost impossible and probably throwing the fridge out of the window from second floor would finish the problem lol

    Sometimes some rice with sesame oil and dried seaweed is the quick gourmet meal I need to make it to bed time. And, I am always thankful for my meal. I have lived among desperate starving people and not one bite goes in my mouth that I am not grateful for.
