Pan Seared Foie Gras and 10K Sweat

There's this new Chinese restaurant at Hyatt, Taste Paradise. The restaurant got a very nice, strategic location in the heart of the CBD (where everybody flocks in for the whole weekend). It's a Chinese infused with French in a quite decent way. Think of lobster and truffle.


The monstrous foie gras in some juice I forgot. Monstrous because everytime I taste it in my mouth I'll think of cholesterol, saturated fats, and cholesterol, and some more fat. That's what it is, isn't it? And that's what I love. Sooo tasty! But true to Gossen's Law #1, after eating half of this liver my tongue and my brain already have enough of it. And the enjoyment starts to decline in proportion with the number of bites.

Less is more. Applicable to fashion too, don't you think?


The above fattiness would then translate into this - Adidas King of The Road Marathon 2012. Many many many thanks to this girl! Me and my SCG colleague can participate in this mini-marathon because she selflessly registered for me right at the racepack collection spot. Somehow I stupidly missed the registration deadline. Silly. Thanks Rosieeee



Accidentally met with a guy from Ancora Foundation. How surprising! Never expected to see him joining a race lol. Nice to see you Pak!


Also met my supa-smart internship supervisor at Allianz (back in 2010). I'm just glad he still got his hair.. actuarial work can be really challenging at times, ya know. So here we are posing for the completion of this 10 Km run. It was soooo much fun! Proud!!




Finish 10k in 1:15 hours. Next time will be much better and faster ]:)


Registration for Jakarta Race is already opened! I've been asking a lot of my friends to join but can only gather about 10 people so far. Join the 10 km! Definitely worth the sweat :)
