Chinese New Year dinner at Jody’s / Beer & food / Good times

Yes. We went to Jody’s house and ate like kings. Proper Taiwanese cuisine ( have a pic somewhere) . Everything from hot pot to barbecued banana prawns ( not flavour but that was the name of them). Washed down with Suntory, Sapporo and Taiwan beer. Me , Travis, Jody and her family had a great time. We then had a couple of drinks in Bobwundayes with Gareth and went home too late. I did wake with a hangover and will have to run hard later. But it was worth it. The night before incidentally we had yalitori near no4 park and again drank too much beer. I tell myself it is acceptable simply because when we are back at work the excessive drinking will stop and I should drop back down to lower than 75 kgs. I still feel my optimum weight is 70. But It’s hard to get there during a holiday ( too many temptations). Not sure what we will do today. I do know it won’t involve getting wasted.

Happy New Year!



Newcastles burst of form is over. Losing to Spurs thanks to Gareth Bale. yoan gouffran scored but was carried off later ( not a broken leg thank god). Arsenal ground out a one nil win tho. Leeds drew 2-2 with Wolves.

Movies & Books

After watching Black Rain yesterday I am in the mood for classic movies. I went thru a spell recently of watching proper classics such as ‘Hound of the Baskervilles’ with Peter Cushion.

I am reading Nightmares & Dreamscapes by Stephen King. It is a collection of short stories from the master. So far no classics but it’s good coffee shop reading ( sitting in Starbucks with a good book is heaven).

I think I will have to run this beer n food off later god my gut feels heavy!
