As I attempt to increase the frequency of riding the bike to work this week, it has introduced a new problem: lunch. Or rather, lack of ability to carry lunch to work. 🙁
I believe that in life, one has to always try hard to adapt to the changes that surrounds the person. After all, nothing stays the same forever, and getting too attached to habits of life can only bring in complacency. Last week, I just bought lunches at work cafeteria. There are two problems with this.
- Food taste and selection is terrible! It just plainly sucks.
- It is too expensive! Trying to eat healthy, chicken salad cost me $7 last week! 😮
I usually pack turkey sandwiches but the plastic container it resides in is too big! That definitely did not fit in my medium sized messenger bag that I take with me to work. It already contains my change of clothes on top of other sundry things.
To really make this healthy, green, and cost-saving habit to take full life, I had to make this lunch happen! Then this morning, it occurred to me. I could just pack individual sandwiches in its own smaller containers! It’s thinner (half the thickness) and would allow to be compact! Engineering at its finest! 😀 So I don’t have to spend too much money to buy lunch at work now! Yeah!
Even in engineering, you have to constantly adapt to different challenges, as new problems always ensue. Here’s to successful biking to work three times this week! Depending on how well this week goes, I may just bike to work all 5 days next week! Here’s to your health.
And for the last part, I wanted to thank all those that cared about my health and thus kept pestering me over and over and over… and over! 😛 That means thanks goes to Soojin, my dearest wife, my mom, and my mother-in-law!! Ha ha ha… Thanks everyone.

That’s the most brilliant idea I have ever heard! The next leap in lunch technology would be to make a turkey sandwich pill. Of course, it’s been done in the movies but not for real. I’ll get started on it.
hey.. how about you just take all the materials you need for a turkey sammich at the beginning of hte week and store in the work fridge (you have one don’t yall)… you can take it on the few days you drive to work and then just make it at lunch time~ 🙂
While I had thought of taking all the things to work and store it there, we’ve known to have people taking other people’s food!! That’s so wrong… and don’t want that happen to me… 🙁
