Vacation Time - Yippeeee!

It's 7 more hours before I leave for the airport and fly off to Chengdu, Sichuan in China. And as usual, the past few days have been a total whirl of activity at work and in preparation for the trip..... my excuse for the lack of posts in the last couple of days :P

A group of friends, my sis-in-law and l will be visiting Jiuzhaigou Valley in the north of Sichuan Province, which is reputed for its breathtaking natural scenic beauty. We're pretty excited and can't wait to capture as much as possible of its enchantment in photos and video.

In the meantime, word has come through that the dining fare up in this mountainous valley is not exciting and may be fairly challenging to the Singapore palate used to spiciness. Thus, you see below our vacation emergency food supplies, comprising cups of noodles (in tom yam, curry and various other flavors), instant coffee mixes, tea-bags etc. Another friend will be bringing bottles of chilli sauce... okay, okay, you must thinking, that's the 'kiasu' Singaporean going overboard... sigh! when it comes down to satisfying that hunger in the night, better safe than sorry, right?
Anyway, with some foodies in the group, we have promised ourselves to attempt as much of the local cuisine as humanly possible within reasonable limits (i.e. bugs and unknown unappetizing looking items are outside these limits)!

Come back in a week's time for reports.. hopefully, we don't have to make too much of a dent in the emergency food supplies!

Alot of interesting comments on this blog, I was searching for some doctor related info and some how came across this site. I found it pretty cool, so I bookmarked. I'll really liked the second post on the front page, that got my attention.

My site is in a bit different area, but just as useful. I have a cat diabetes related site focusing on cat diabetes and mens health related topics.

I skim a lot of blogs, and so far yours is in the Top 3 of my list of favorites. I'm going to dive in and try my hand at it, so wish me luck.

It'll be in a totally different area than yours (mine is about 1 diabetes type) I know, it sounds strange, but it's like anything, once you learn more about it, it's pretty cool. It's mostly about 1 diabetes type related articles and subjects.
