I’ve tried almost everything to garner comments on this blog and nothing has worked (I was sure the puppy would rouse interest), so now I will try a tactic that is very popular in the blogosphere (ha, I just wanted to say blogosphere).
Expose of dirty laundry part 1.
I am at work and have a terrible hangover. It’s Muslim New Year so it’s a public holiday for everyone but me. More truthfully it’s a public holiday for everyone but me and the other suckers who work for a certain multilateral organisation (here’s a tip idiots: forcing your staff to work on public holiday is not enough to counter allegations of gross inefficiency).
Last night some friends who work for a well known international NGO (that gives more annual leave and lets staff take public holidays) had cocktails to celebrate the beginning of a very long weekend. Of course I went. I didn’t come all the way to Banda Aceh for the work you know.
Anyway, long story short: too much gin=sick Sarah.
I trialled a new hangover food this morning and it seems to have done the trick. Behold the lontong:
The white chunks are a long stick of sticky rice chopped into pieces. The soup/sauce is coconut-y and curry-ish with peanuts and vegetables. There is also an egg in there for good measure. This is tasty tasty and maybe even more satisfying when I have a hangover. The only thing holding lontong back from being the primary hangover food is that it’s only eaten for breakfast so if I snooze too late I lose the chance to eat it. 3.5/5 stars.
