If you are working, you will find that you really are at the mercy of these joints because you just get bored eventually by the choice of food that you have at lunch time.

On the menu today, so far (it's only 8am and not all of us are in the office yet) is steaming white rice, spicy "kung po" chicken and sambal squid.
Now the challenge we face, is keeping the food away from two hungry wolves who have a talent for devouring food in a blink of an eye.
