Voila Hotel - Dinner, Day 2 & 3

The first day at client's office was kinda challenging with 'major hiccups'...
Anyway, I managed to brace thru them and hence, I must reward myself with good food after goin thru a hard day.
I revenged the Client by ordering the most expensive item in the menu (not me paying anyway!)
the sirloin steak
look at the thick cuts, i like it medium rare with blood oozing out!
wuakakaka!
*carnivore mode ON
alrite, this slab of meat is well-marinated, but is too meaty & heaty
went back room to brew some 'ho yan hor' else tomorrow sure fall sick
 
The following day
If you have read my previous post, the office that I was stationed has its own cafeteria and in-house chef that prepares healthy meal. Usually it serves 2-3 items in the menu for the staffs to choose.
During my first day, I was given the menu chit for the week and the following week. Basically I have to tick my preferred option and they will key-in into their database. They will put a 'mark' once I have eaten/claimed my meal from the cafeteria.
Unfortunately the menu were all in French, so I have to make do with my limited French to guess the food item.
On the 2nd day, I had beef steak for lunch again...but this was a more decent steak with no blood oozing...
It was served with a generous portion of French bean and mashed potatoes...
drinks in the cafeteria consists of free-flow coffee, tea, hot chocolate, soft drinks as well as the usual drinking water...Yea, just take a cup/glass and DIY from the machine.
During the evening, i hav enuff of beef and tried the chicken Milanese in the hotel
they use chicken breast for this and was a bit dry....Would prefer it to serve with salad than fries.

The food looks good though nowadays I prefer the doneness to be medium well to avoid having the red liquid oozing out. Can use app to translate the French words.

Mun: lol, playing safe yea? I dun mind with those red liquid, though it might look disgusting. I wish I can use app to translate but I was only given 2-3 minutes to decide what to eat for the entire 2.5 weeks and it was a hardcopy form. Really no time to type out the words ;-)

Whoaa!!! You even brought Ho Yan Hor for the trip! I thought I was crazy to carry Po Chai Pills when I travelled. Now I must bring Ho Yan Hor too!

I dare not eat any meat that still have some blood visible after reading all the horrifying bacteria stories.

Twilight Man: I tink whoever who is goin abroad for long would definitely bring any of these, just to prevent falling sick in a foreign country. Bloody meat..haha, u also playing safe yea...

Yes yes don't dare to risk getting sick so playing it safe. No locals to help you translate to decide what to tick on the lunch form?

Mun: we were 'confined' in a meeting room, not yet introduced to the staff that time.
