food, friends & fun

If I were to sum up last week in three words, it would be food, friends and parties. Thankfully due to prior planning, heaps of discipline and some sacrifices (sleep), I got a lot of work done in the midst of all that.

This week, I plan to slow down a little. The heat in Kuala Lumpur is replaced by haze. The latter is as debilitating as the former. So it’s of utmost importance to keep myself fit through sufficient rest and nutritious food.

A few friends of mine (Rina and Ash) decided to do something different together. We signed up for a Mauritian dinner at PlateCulture, had home-cooked food and made some friends.
