If you have a fear of flying, spending an extended time living at an airport hotel might make you feel more at ease. With over 1100 flights in and out of just Hong Kong it makes it more apparent that flying is very safe. Watching flights take off and land all day long was something we used to love to do pre-Covid. Right now is it eerily quite around here. I hope things start going back to normal soon before Covid Pychosis sets it.
We are currently staying at The Regal Airport Hotel which is adjacent to HK International Airport. This isn’t the first time we lived here; we stayed for over 2 months when Kevin first got the job here in HK. I like it here, the staff know us, there is a bit of community as the majority of guests are other airline crew.
But after 4 months of hotel living we have decided we need a change and are heading back to Canada. We have been lucky to have been able to spend this time together as a family. We know a lot of people who have been separated from their loved ones for months. But for the sake of our sanity and our kids we have decided to chance it and go home while Kevin stays here to work and commute. Hopefully a commuter schedule will work out with all of the quarantine rules and rules changing almost daily it seems.
Alright, back to food because thats more interesting anyway….
A big way to avoid bad ingredients in your food is to make your own condiments. At first it seemed intimidating, there’s already so many steps in putting together a healthy home-cooked meal. But like all things, after a few times it becomes a part of your routine.
Chicken Fajita Sauce Mix
2 tbsp chili powder
1 tbsp paprika
1 tbsp cumin
1 tbsp oregano
1 1/2 tsp onion powder
1 1/2 tsp garlic powder
1 tbsp sea salt
1 1/2 tsp pepper
1 tbsp arrowroot powder
Mix together in a bowl and add to your fajitas just like you have done with the store bought mix. I use about 1/2 cup of water, I think the store bought mix says 1 cup but I find there is usually water from the peppers already.
