6am, clear blue sky,
A cool 20 something degrees,
A pretty news anchor with an attractive voice was on TV,
A very sleepy Jason, sitting against the headboard of the bed, staring at the TV
With his half opened eyes, awaiting to wake up from his dream ...
(Ywan!!!) So cold! Why do I have to get out of bed at this hour! Why do I have to be hungry at this hour for the past WEEK!!! (well most days of past week) I blame the weather, the evil cold spell! I have no heater at home so it was always a struggle to get dressed on a cold morning with non-wooden flooring at home! There were 2 options, (1) I either RAN to the bathroom or (2) I had to tiptoe! (perhaps a pair Ugg boots for HOME USE only?)
The longer I stay home, the more I want to jump back into bed! Best solution was to get out the door and enjoy a relax and hearty breakfast! I did mention the morning hunger lasted the whole week right? Sigh! Tuesday - Friday!!!!
I did not have anything on Monday for breakfast, just a cup of coffee but I did get up early. I felt so guilty for not using the early morning for more food the day before so I rewarded myself something hearty warm! Instant Noodles with Sunny-side-up fried egg and sausages!
- unpretentious crowds, friendly staff, free refills of coffee
- MSG! Food Coma at 10am!

My breakfast yesterday filled my stomach til well over 2pm so I went for something lighter and healthier. Oatmeal and Egg Sandwich at the Swiss Cafe. Oatmeal was bland and require adding of sugar yourself. A healthy dish indeed but with 3 spoonful of sugar I added ... sigh ... I am a very sweet person! *blink blink* The eggs were good, thick and slightly creamy. Not much butter flavor so I assume it was cream or milk they added perhaps to get that texture??
- very thick and creamy layers of eggs
- full cream / whole milk in bottles!
- oatmeal was bland by default, have to add sugar yourself. Healthy indeed!

After Wednesday slightly more healthy breakfast, it was time to go back to a more hearty breakfast to warm my body up! Satay Beef instant noodles with scramble eggs and bun at Tsui Wah. The eggs were a bit watery but with strong flavors. The satay beef was good, tender as a result of baking soda as always! Definitely a bit heavy for the morning but it made my body all warmed up! The size of the breakfast was rather huge for me that could not finish the bun.
- satay beef, rich flavors and very tender
- sweet bun I like
- scrambled eggs were too watery

TGIF! Still a very cold morning! Since I had a rather heavy breakfast yesterday morning, I opted for something lighter, relatively lighter of course. Minced Beef Food Rice Roll ( 腸粉). Not the best I have tried, the rice roll layer was rather thick but it was hearty enough for me on this morning. While it was hearty, it wasn't enough in terms of quantity!
So my friend (whom I forced him to join) and I ordered another Corned Beef and Egg Sandwich. I love corned beef as much as I love my spam! (well ... it was still lighter than instant noodles right? I believe it was and I will continue to believe so!) It was a very satisfied Friday morning!!!!
- Corned Beef and Egg sandwich
- Plenty of minced beef in the rice roll with sweet soy sauce (MSG anyone??)
- The sandwich bread a bit too dried
