Managed to squeeze in a morning combat before work and it gave me the extra boost I needed at work today! I find that morning workouts help me to be more rejuvenated and energetic and I’m more mellow when making decisions and clearing work.
Saw quite a touching scene today at the stationery shop I patronized—this old illiterate lady who didn’t seem quite well off bought a birthday card and asked the store clerk to help her pen a birthday message and to address it to “Jerry” , her grandson. For some reason I just felt a twinge of sadness and wondered if “Jerry” would appreciate the card or just toss it aside amidst his other expensive presents.
Went for a nice 5k run with the hubs after work; the weather was a bit chilly and the paths were not so crowded which made for great conversation run with the hubs until I decided to get a bit competitive on the the run back with an unknowing American couple who were doing fartleks on the opposite path. All I can say is that the few minutes pushed us out of our comfort zone!
Hubs surprised me after the run by taking me on a date night dinner seeing that he had a practice tomorrow night and I was busy Wednesday night. We went to Flam’s (a French-German joint that served flans) and the food was really good—light and full of flavours. Also, dinner after a run always taste so good!
A goat cheese-bacon-honey flan was shared, together with some Alsac sausages and a Shirley temple for me!
Not to be confused with the custard flan (dessert), the flan served here resembles a flat thincrust crispy pizza.
Nice, quiet & homely setting; perfect for a date night! Real classy joint!
Lovely sausages & goat cheese bacon honey flan! Goat cheese was added a strong flavour to the flan, balanced by the drizzled honey.

Me with Ms Shirley Temple after food was devoured.
Date night ended on a sweet note with chendol snow ice dessert; doused with copious amounts of gula melaka (caramelized brown sugar) and red beans.
After a night of great conversation & traisping through town on a quiet night, it is back to doing laundry and just chilling in front of a “Diners, Drive Ins & Dives” episode before calling it a night!
Have you ever tried a flan before?
What is your date night or night out like?
