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.
