When you completed your high school, you were expected to pursue ‘useful’ courses.
When you struggled to complete your degree, you were expected to graduate with first class honours.
When you finally get out of the school, you were expected to join the workforce and get a handsome pay.
And when you secured a good job, your boss expects you to hit unreasonable targets .
Recently, I realized that I’ve been putting sky high expectation on food ever since I started blogging.
I was told by someone that Loy Kee has the best chicken rice in town. Interesting enough, they even have an interactive website displaying the menu and the pix of celebs who visited their place.
Roasted chicken set meal for one ($ 6)
A plate of char siew (BBQ pork) with tree bark-like texture ($ 4)
All in all, the food was surprisingly normal. Nothing to shout about though it is acclaimed as having the best chicken rice in town.

“Boss, I’m overstressed and underpaid, I expect 10% increment by next year.”
*Stunned for 20 seconds*
“Goodness, we are facing recession now, have I not taught you how to manage your expectation??”
Yes, 8 months down here and the best thing I’ve learnt is to come without expectation and leave without disappointment.
