Right to Brag- a theme of the day from word press

Tell us about something you (or a person close to you) have done recently (or not so recently) that has made you really, unabashedly proud.

For once, I would just wanted to say this is the first time when I register myself under SG blog awards and I got in as a finalist under the advertisers' choice under the best cooking blog. I have never expected that I would be in as a finalist since this is my maiden registeration.

If you guys out there like my blog, kindly vote for me daily for the best cooking blog  at for the best cooking blog award.

This has made me to be more inspired to get more recipes to cook. Next week, I will be doing wanton soup. I shall upload the recipe then.

Familial Feasts

Last Sun was Father’s Day in many countries. If you could dedicate a holiday to a more distant relative, who would it be — and why?

I guess will be grand auntie's days ....cos my grand auntie make fabulous rice dumpling which i could never forget....For someone who walks very wobbly, she is still so active trying to maintain her life through socializing. She never gives up and ensure that she gets a dose of social life even at her age i guess she is ard 70.

Verbal Ticks

Is there a word or a phrase you use (or overuse) all the time, and are seemingly unable to get rid of? If not, what’s the one that drives you crazy when others use it?

For me , it is you dun care about me to my bf . There are many at times when I needed him to be with him and yet he is appearing can't be bothered. I know men have the tendency to put career over relationship. However, at times I just need that listening ear from him  hoping that he could comfort me for a little while as we are in long distance relationship . I guess as a gf  I have been independent enough just that when I am down  I need that listening ear which he feels is too much of an overloading to him.

I seriously dunno how to maintain this relationship anymore . I have spoken to him about breaking up and he ask for the reason  and I cited to him and he did change for a while and yet go back. It is a relationship I treasured as it has been over 5 yrs...If he still does not intend to relocate, then breaking up without a sms to him might be the best way as I feel he never seems to treasure me.

Favourite mistake -Is there a mistake you’ve made that turned out to be a blessing — or otherwise changed your life for the better? Tell us all about it.

My favourite mistake is logging onto mirc. It was a mistake to know logging on to mirc yet also can be a blessing. Cos from there i got  one good friend and got to start dating. I never knew I could date cos being an ugly duckling I never believe I could date.

In there, I saw the most of the human nature...the sluttiness, the gayness, the pevert acts through the typing from others. It also helps me to do the research that I needed for my course work. I have submitted an assignment thru interviewing a gay for my assignment title For a man who loves shopping.

City Planners

 Daily Prompt- If you could clone one element from another city you’ve visited — a building, a cultural institution, a common street food, etc. — and bring it back to your own hometown, what would it be?

It would be malaysia's lok lok and also black pepper hot plate chicken noodles. The current lok lok version in singapore sucks big time. The black pepper hot plate chicken noodles is just nice cos singapore one not so nice.


Antique Antics

I guess the oldest thing that i ever owe now is my sony discman which i got it in the late 90s with my first pay check. It held memories of my teenage working life.

Here's a picture of it.

This is currently so out of date in current lifestyle. Now only hp,ipad ,tablet and ipod.

Terminal time - You’re at the airport, your flight is delayed for six more hours, and none of your electronic devices is working. How do you pass the time?

I would be taking a browse at the bookstore and get the book which i like to read and from there write out the reflections i learnt from the book

Binding Judgement

Daily Prompt - Does it ever make sense to judge a book by its cover — literally or metaphorically? Tell us about a time you did, and whether that was a good decision or not.

For me , I dun really care about the book's cover more I care more about the content that is in the book. Books that are of pretty cover page might take get the attention. However if the content inside the book is useless it will not help much.

Somehow or rather, I am glad that I have many books of treasures which i really enjoy reading after which i will write it as a review for it . I do love reading when I am reading subjected to having to read it at a aircon place.

Here are some of the titles that I enjoyed reading : the power to change your life by rick warren,  David by charles swindoll, the power of positive thinking by norman vincent peale and etc. I would not say it is a good decision or not in choosing the books cos it is up to personal preference.

In another retrospective point of view , what if it is coming from the legal aspect? Does judges judge just based according to the statue of laws or rather was there a component of compassion in them . It is really hard to say on anything.

Gone with the Windfall

Daily Prompt

You just inherited $1,000,000 from an aunt you didn’t even know existed. What’s the first thing you buy (or otherwise use the money for)?

Seriously, keep 70% in bank first.  Balance 30% go and get a place of my own. Cos 70% can get something else i like later on with some interest to be earn from there then go on a short trip.

Dream Teacher

Daily Prompt- You can choose any person from history to teach you any topic you want. Who’s your teacher, and what do they teach you?

For me, there are many teachers in my mind like Steve Jobs, Jim Rohn and Jesus. However, the ultimate teacher would be Jesus. It is so difficult to struggle with unforgiveness , hatred, anguish when people hurt us with their hurtful remarks. How to deal with it in a simple manner yet find it easy to let go , is just a matter of choice.

Choice as mentioned earlier, is something very personal. Sometimes , it can be frustration cos that person hurt you so bad enough that it feels so hurt that u never wan to see them nor forgive them. This is really something I want to ask Jesus for the power to be ability to forgive just like He did for me.

Breathing Room- An extra room has magically been added to your home overnight. The catch: if you add more than three items to it, it disappears. How do you use it?

The 3 items I would add to the room is my bed, a book, and a cup of ice mocha. It would be my special sanctuary where i want to be disappearing from home. I would want to disappear ...I think i disappear already also no one will know ....

Adding 4 items can get me a free disappearance from this ugly world is the best thing.


You are on a mission to Mars. Because of the length of of the journey, you will never be able to return to Earth. What about our blue planet will you miss the most?

If i will never be able to return to earth, the people i  think i will miss most is my partner veron, mom , bf and also my business.

Veron is because i found a confidante in her, Mom is because of her cooking , Bf is because of that I love him and my business is because it is a way of me trying to impact the world by helping others to build healthy lives and home.

Unsafe containers-Which emotion(s) — joy, envy, rage, pity, or something else — do you find to be the hardest to contain?

I find the hardest to contain is rage. Rage, not only consist of jealous and envy but  also anger.
Sometimes, rage is something I feel is to deal with anger management first. Thoughts are provoking.
It is something that can cause hurt and bitterness for the rest of your life.

For me, it was bitterness and rage when I was being abused by my dad. He caused the hurt which I could never forgive him. If he thinks that he has the right to abuse me whenever we have an argument, I think is utterly wrong. The two worst attempts were that he threw a standing fan at me which till now my chest still feel painful at times and the punches and kicks that he gave. It was so painful that I had to see doctor.

My own personal opinion is that if you are planning to have kids, make sure you know that you can love them instead of abusing them. Gals out there, make sure you find a partner who is not abusive and not useless kind of guy.

**Disclaimer- this is a fictious story from my imagination.

A true saint - theme of the day from word press

Daily prompt-In 300 years, if you were to be named the patron saint of X, what would you like X to be? Places, activities, objects — all are fair game.

For me , I wanted to be true saint of love. Love is a powerful source of energy. With love, there are a lot of things that you would do for the one you love. Like a mother lifting a car up for her child trapped in it.  The first and foremost thing for me is that when I feel that I am being loved, I feel I am refreshed , recharged and nothing can stop me.

Snapshot stories - theme for the day by wordpress

Snapshot stories for me are pretty few cos i rarely like to take photos. However, the one who makes me like to take photo would be the someone special whom I got to know a few years back.

Taking photos help us to engrave our memories with more meaningful rememberances when we are old and trying to reminiscence. Hmm... let me see which is the first photo I took.

This was taken on my 28th birthday
Something to remember about that I celebrated my birthday with my lovely cell of SM165.Besides me is my friend Dan Yang. Looking at the photo makes me think that I need to go and find that brown tee shirt to wear again. Haha, I have got too many clothes that I have only worn a few times and I chuck it one side. I think i really need to revamp my wardrobe again.
