Last August I went back to Hong Kong alone to submit more requirements to the Hong Kong immigration. I had to go back to their offices three times and finally the kind immigration officer gave in to my request of for an extension of stay for another two years.( I’m a Hong Kong resident.)
I was so happy that I went to Elements Mall to celebrate with a meal. A non-diet meal! I chose to eat at Nahm a Vietnamese and Thai restaurant.
Even though I knew I was going to break my diet I still chose food that was allowed in my diet and that meant no carbs. I had the set lunch that was very affordable at HK$88 and included a salad and a main course.
For my salad I chose the Vietnamese chicken salad made with cucumber, cabbage, peanuts, mint leaves and a light vinaigrette. It was absolutely delicious! And to think I used to hate cucumber and raw cabbage. This dish has totally changed my mind. I ended up taking this home since the main course was more than enough to fill me up. I had this for dinner. It wasn’t as crunchy but still very good.

If I weren’t on a diet I would have finished all the rice. The sauce was heavenly. It was rich with coconut milk and just the right amount of curry and it wasn’t spicy at all. The sole fish was thick, meaty and tender. It could have passed for chicken. I was very, very happy with this cheat meal.

On a side note:
My first Apple device was the 1st gen Nano. Before that I tried all kinds of mp3 players not wanting to give in to the iPod. I just couldn’t ignore the fantastic form factor of the first Nano. My next Apple product was the iMac. My friend Deb finally convinced me to try the iMac. Since I was fed up with viruses and spyware I gave in.
After that I was an Apple fanatic all the way. An iPhone 3gs followed, then a Macbook Pro, then an iPad. Sold the Macbook pro and now I’m a happy owner of the ultra light Macbook Air. My iPhone is nearing the end of its life so I can’t wait to buy the iPhone 4s. Thank you Steve Jobs for all the wonderful devices you and your team have dreamed up. I can’t imagine my daily life without an Apple device. I’m sure your legacy will live on.
