Spicy Squid & Bean Sprout Stir-Fry with Rice

1.75

on Korea Air – KE 623

-Nadi to Incheon to Manila-

solo

Mission to Fiji, Day 4 (see previously 9.286 Kokoda with Grilled Prawns).

Leaving Nadi/Suva.  Attended a series of planning sessions – Wednesday to Friday –  in preparation for the Fifth Meeting of the Asia-Pacific Parliamentarian Forum on Global Health, which will be held in Fiji in August 2019.  On my way back home.

Lunch in flight from Nadi to Incheon.

Dinner in flight from Incheon to Manila.

The octopus thing was dry and flavorless.  But I’m glad that the carrier is trying to expand their menu – in fact, it may have been my first in-flight octopus.
