A Heap of Fried Rice


from Shanghai Seafood House

in my hotel room – Quest Suva

-Suva, Fiji-


Mission to Fiji, Day 6 of 8.

In Fiji to conduct a series of planning meetings and ocular inspections – Wednesday to Friday in and around Nadi, Monday and Tuesday in Suva – in preparation for the Fifth Meeting of the Asia-Pacific Parliamentarian Forum on Global Health, which will be held in Fiji in August 2019 and highlight the role of parliamentarians in addressing the health impacts of climate change.  This is the fourth such mission in advance of the Fifth Meeting (see previously 10.118 Awhi Farms…).


For some reason, Shanghai Seafood House has a secondary location right across the street (see most recently 10.046 Salt & Pepper Tofu), one block closer to my hotel.  

Portions in the Pacific are generally big, but this fried rice was something else entirely – I’d estimate 8 bowls of rice, enough to feed me through the end of my stay.  Alas, it was kinda greasy and otherwise flavorless.
