Cheok Kee Braised Duck Rice - Singapore

Laziness, Personified
I recently quit my job, pulled stakes in Paris and settled in Singapore.  I tell myself I'm in early retirement and will repeat it like a mantra until my money runs out.  With little to worry about I anticipated a blog creativity burst that never arrived. Rather, I've become lazier.  I can easily pass a day without doing a whole lot.  For hours I ponder deep questions such as "should I swim before dinner or after?"   Then I stumbled into Cheok Kee, where they take the bones out of the duck for you.  These are the types of incremental improvements that can jolt a listless retiree back into the blogosphere.

It comes smothered in a hearty sauce to which I mixed in some of their fragrant chili.  I impatiently dug in while Dodo was off buying drinks.

The slices of duck were super tender and with no bones to slow me down I ploughed through greedily.  As my stomach filled my thoughts turned towards the afternoon nap.  A good lunch sends me down to REM level three.
If you're lazy like I am, you should visit Cheok Kee.  Just make sure you bring someone to wait in line for you.
