Korea day 18 breakfast

I’m getting larger. I need to trim back where I can do I don’t have to refuse tasty treats later. Thus I give you …

The healthy breakfast: egg white asparagus omelet with more asparagus on the side, not one but two salads, fruit, yogurt, and such.

Notice the bread in the background? Untouched.

Korea quarantine day 13 dinner

Finis! The last meal of the quarantine is upon us!

Looks like chicken 🐔 nuggets, potato 🥔, pasta salad, jalapeño 🌶 , pickled cabbage 🥬 , and pineapple 🍍

😮 And a mysterious green mini sized treat.

What is it? Damned if I know.

What does it taste like? Shoulder shrug 🤷‍♂️

I think it’s a biscuit/cookie, but would not testify to that. It’s dry, crunchy, dusty, and bland.

Would I eat it again? Probably not.

And with that we wrap this series up! 🎉🎊🍾🪅🥳👏

Stay tuned for what comes next.

Korea quarantine day 13 breakfast

Last quarantine breakfast!

Let’s get to it!

You know what this means, Dear Friends. It’s breakfast sando time!

As one should expect in this setting, we’ve lapped the meals. I do like the eggs in their own container but I wish they were less stodgy with the salt.

Of course, tomorrow that is other inmates’s problem.


Korea quarantine day 12 lunch

Another repast repeat:

  • Ham
  • Boiled white fish
  • Rice
  • Soup
  • Pickled veg

Making up for the delayed meals yesterday, lunch was dropped off a full thirty minutes early.

So far today I’ve been oddly productive. I did some lite work. I’ve been doing maintenance on my site, an overdue overhaul of my RSS feeds, and some laptop cleanup as space is an issue (& I forgot my USB drive).

Later I’ll be tearing into my Emacs & Org-mode config to make it more conducive to writing and less to programming (which I don’t really do much of anymore).

And, of course, a bath 🛀

Seoul from my sick room window

I enjoy peeping these hidden rooftop spaces from my wee room on the eleventh floor.

First up is a space that epitomizes what I’m talking about:

This one seems sadly underutilized and a bit messy

Next we have a space looking like maybe it’s under construction:

Now we’re back into the better appointed spaces. This one says, “Party!”

Hard to see in this picture but there is a fence done up in green to keep people from the next building spying:

Here we have a more utilitarian patio:

This one reminds me of a boat with all the aquamarine and metal ladders:

When I shopped for housing in Tokyo five (!!!) years ago I wanted a place with a space like these in an older building. What I got was one of the best views of Tokyo from a high rise away from the city. I would not have chosen any differently. I still dream about that apartment on a regular basis.

H/t to the iOS camera app Obscura. The focus control made these pictures through the dirty window and screen possible. Maybe you can play with focus in the stock camera app, but I haven’t found out how.
