Too distracting

It's too distracting being at home. Some friends are coming over for dinner tonight, so I went to the market to get some fresh meat in the morning.

I wanted to put everything away in the fridge and head to the office. That's when it all started. Since everything is so fresh, I might as well prepare chicken curry in the morning so I don't have to rush in the evening. Sounds like a great plan. It wouldn't take too long anyway. I'll be in the office in no time.

While peeling potatoes by the kitchen sink, the washing machine caught my eye. I might as well put the clothes in the washer while I'm cooking. Then I make a cup of coffee and steam some buns for breakfast. Rusty comes along and I give him some food.

The curry is now simmering away. I clean the stove and find the kitchen floor too oily, so I give it a good wash. Now everything's spick and span. I should go shower.

Wait, let me get some curry leaves from the garden first. The sun is shining brightly, I should water the plants. While I'm at it, I think the patio floor needs cleaning too. The garden is looking good again. I walk into the house and forget all about the curry leaves.

I bump into Rusty near my bathroom. He looks like he needs a good scrub down too. He gets his bath and scurried out to dry himself on the rug. Since I'm already wet, I might as well wash the toilet. Finally I shower and get dressed for work.

It's now 11.30am and I'm still at home. Maybe I should eat lunch before I leave. Or perhaps I should just work from home today...

EE- Chicken curry, ngoh hiang, cereal prawns, tom yam soup and stir fried vegetables.

He sent an sms earlier: "Go easy on the abalone and sharksfin tonight. Don't overdo the wagyu."

I was tempted to cook nothing but vegetables tonight! :-)
