Cavalock and The Ramen Game Rant

Finally there's no long queue at Konjiki Hototogisu, the latest popular ramen joint in town. We were at CHIJMES for an early dinner and lookit that, no queue at 5.30pm. Hah! Early lunch and dinner have been a thing with me since I started working out again. Anyway, absolutely enjoyed the broth from my shoyu hamaguri ramen. The hamaguri clams, pork and everything that's in there just came together perfectly. The menu says homemade black truffle paste there too but don't go expecting a heavy truffle aroma like some western dishes are fond of producing. It's pretty subtle here as it should be.

Harking back to my previous post bout soccer and now folks here are lamenting bout how much the country sucks at the sports. But I'm like "So what? Why are locals getting upset bout our national team or the entire country sucking at soccer? There are other sports that we are good or even great at, like swimming. No country can be great at every sport. I bet we suck just as bad at basketball and tennis but why aren't anyone making a ruckus bout that? Just accept the fact that we suck at soccer and move on."

My friend said, "S-League is crime prevention." Which I thought was rather amusing, well, maybe politically incorrect but it still got a chuckle out of me.

So what have I been painting? Almost finished these bad boys and so far this month, I have played 12  different boardgames and miniature war games. Played two rather heavy Euro games for the first time recently, Lorenzo il Magnifico and Great Western Trail. Both very popular among serious boardgames, each game about 2 hours long. Loved the former, hated the latter. Great Western Trail was a mess because no one knew the rules and we were reading them and playing at the same time. Got more than a couple rules wrong. Anyway, am always up for a boardgame or two, if anyone wants to, just let me know.
