I’m always in the habit of choosing my in-flight meals before flying long distances. The primary reason for this is due to dietary restrictions (I must opt for either NLML, LFML, or any other healthy alternative), but the convenience of both receiving my meals first and not having to shout over plane engines is also a plus.
The following were taken yesterday and today on a long, painful flight from New York City to Hanoi via Singapore Airlines (Economy Class). I skipped the Singapore to Hanoi meal, but did manage to eat my New York City to Frankfurt and Frankfurt to Singapore meals. I’ve no complaints at all about the quality of food from Singapore Airlines (it’s my favorite airline), given how much of it must be cooked before and served on a flight.
Saffron Rice, Grilled Fish, Grilled Vegetables, Rice Cakes, and Fruits
Squash, Zucchini, White Rice, and Chicken Breast
Fish, Potatoes, Greens, and Fruit
I must miss Vietnam to eat this for breakfast. Leaving the States tonight and landing back into Hanoi this Saturday. I can’t wait to be home.
Cold Bún, Shrimp, Pork, and Fried Onions
I’m pretty sure Greek yogurt is my favorite type of yogurt. After eating the following yogurt for breakfast I proceeded to purchase even more (Chobani) at Duane Reade, which seems to be located on every single corner in this city.
Greek Yogurt Honey Parfait
Not the prettiest meal I’ve plated but the taste more than makes up for it.
Hummus, Stuffed Grape Leaves, Eggplant Salad
One of the perks of currently being in the United States for Automattic-related travel is that I am able to take advantage of having things easily shipped to me (import taxes in Vietnam can be quite steep).
My coworker MT, whose work and overall swagger I both greatly admire, sent the following business cards to New York City for me this week.
The coolest part about the cards is the QR Code, which when scanned (on paper or on screen; try it!) with an application like Scan links directly to my Gravatar profile.
