Missbossy Meanders... SINGAPORE

Sunday 27-April-03

Training Ride: 75Km around in Singapore... I can take the physical punishment but the cars are bloody frightening. I can't believe I'm concerned about SARS when I put myself in harms way like this. Oh I'm doing this for Action for AIDS by the way...

Another charity ride group joins us... for orphans or something like that... Houses for Humanity? I don't remember. Something much more popular than AIDS...!

Our first food stop (not talking about the prolonged coffee before starting at McDonalds). Changi Village hawker center.

I'm in the process of learning that we're not so much
training as moving from place to place looking for good food.

This is more or less the place that I slipped, throwing
my fishball noodles everywhere. I'm a class act.

If you focus you can make out a bit of my noodles under the table. I'm suspicious about the fact I slept right next to a competitors stall...

Halfway across the island we find ourselves at another fried carb stop. This is some of the yummiest fried carbs going: prata. It takes a tougher stomach than mine, however, to eat 2000 calories of this and get back on my bike. So I pass.

Vote of approval for
the South Indian Meal.
No this is NOT PeeWee.

Second Prata meal of the day.
For the uneducated, prata is a kind of fried bread... oily, crispy.. like a very crunchy naan but fried. It's served with curry.

 

Stay tuned for choir practice... we're off to the Esplanade...
