To eat or not to eat outside?

Cooking dinner can be very time consuming. I mean you go to work in the morning and spend almost the rest of the day in the office. And not to mention commuting to work and back home which most of the time the traffic is congested.

So by the end of the day, you just want to simply tapao food home or have dinner with colleagues or friends somewhere nearby your workplace.

I always have this habit of eating at the same place (or few places) all the time for my dinner. I don't like to go to fancy restaurants or to the recommended places in food blogs. I simply enjoy simple and familiar food (that suit my taste) without burning hole in my pocket.

However when eating almost the same thing for every dinner can be very boring. So, sometimes I'll just cook simple meal. And today I'm all alone in the house cooking some bacon, baked beans, sausage and egg with some lettuce for dinner. With self made minty jelly and two episodes of Gilmore Girls, the evening can still be very appetizing too.

Meme: Chinese New Year's tradition

I've got this meme from Dora which is right at this time before Chinese New Year.

What are some of your new year’s good luck traditions?

Rules :Copy the person and persons’ names that sent it to you and add your own at the bottom of the list.

*My mom used to collect some coins and when the new year comes she put the coins in a bowl and shake it to create sounds. She said its good luck for money throughout the year. And also wearing dotted dresses on new year don’t know why. CC/chalyza/keep

*My old folks always told us to avoid spending money on new years day. They said, once you spend on the first day of the year, you like to spend the rest of the year.Behind d Scenes of ME/ Retchel’s Pure Life/ /A little bit of me

*I grew up believing that if you have some money on your pocket (whatever you’re wearing) come New Year’s eve it will ensure steady flow of income throughout the year. The other belief is that the main door of the house should be wide open come New Year’s eve so that good luck will be ushered in. Juliana of MY WORLD and JULIANA’S LAIR.

*I don't have any traditionals during New Year. Juliana RW

*I have keep a RM50 note which the serial number is begin with number 8 and end up with number 8 also, between the number, it’s not encourage to have number 4 and number 0. By doing this we will have steady income throughout the whole life. It’s not easy to find such note. Another ways is to keep your “Ang Pao” in your pocket or put it inside your pillow on the New Year eve before you sleep. Hazel

*I must make sure our house is clean & tidy on CNY Eve because the God of Prosperity will only "visit" a house which is comfortable to stay with! And I must not sweep or mop the house on First Day of CNY or else the wealth may be ruined. Dora

I've written a similar topic before in this post and I'm going to paste one of the tradition here:

Eminem exceeds 200 lbs and rushed to hospital due to heart problem

Everyone is so concern about weight and yet the majority of us never determine enough when it comes to losing weight. And that includes me.

I always give the same excuses, that I don't have the time to cook and when it comes to eat outside, I can't get any healthy food. And going for an evening jog is almost impossible as I usually work late. The excuses can go on and on.

Many people are finding it hard to make that decision to take action to lose weight. Even celebrity like Eminem knows he is getting fat back in the year 2006. The rapper hasn't been serious about hitting the gym.

And today, he is in the news for having complications from pneumonia. It is said that his weight has exceeded 200 lbs and having serious heart condition and severe pneumonia.

He has been released from the hospital now and resting at home.

(btw, this is a photochopped picture of Eminem that I came about in the internet)

The media will kill Britney Spears

Personally, I love Britney. Or to be specific the old Britney when she first rises to stardom.

She couldn't handle her personal life well, what more her public life which is widely exploited by the media. Even Dr. Phil wants to get a piece of her stuck up life (although I'm glad he cancels Britney show).

She's divorced, lost her children's custody, get caught many times during her lowest points, has been accused for having mental problem and was recently hospitalized after appeared to be under the influence of an unknown substance.

Honestly speaking, history always repeat itself and certainly we do not want to hear the same thing happen to Britney as it happened to some of the dead celebrities like Anna Nicole Smith and Elvis Presley. Perhaps Britney should seek opinion from people like Mariah Carey on how to overcome emotional breakdown and come back stronger than ever.
