Recently, mom took a snapshot of us (me, bro and sis-in-law) playing mahjong in our most hideous outfit and expression and uploaded it to Facebook, tagging us along the way.

Naturally, I told her off because of obvious reason:
  1. we don't look good
  2. we don't look good
  3. we don't look good (and we were obviously gambling, hur hur hur)
Mom being mom, she goes all , "It is nice-maa... nothing wrong with the photo-wat~"

Fast forward couple of days later, she eventually got a taste of her own medicine when my bro decided to snap, upload and tag a photo of mom dozing off like a pig - hur hur hur... (this was 2 days ago)

That's when she went berserk, complaining and yelling every day/hour/minute/second that it was such a horrible photo, there goes her reputation, blah blah blah yada yada yada ...... until now~! Gee... how touchy...

NOW YOU KNOW MOM...

Now . You . Know  :D

20 grams of meat protein in a single day

That's the number I need to remember. 20 grams divided by 3 portions (3 meals a day), thats roughly about 6 to 7g of meat protein I can take per meal (which is about the size of a matchbox OR the portion of 1 whole egg). I roughly checked through some sites and it seems like every 100g of meat gives a +/- 20g of protein. That's like 1 and a 1/2 chicken drumstick IN ONE FWAKING DAY! Oh dear, that's very little... (order KFC Snack Plate also gotta think twice now.. eeeks)..

I have been cutting down alot of meat in my meals for the past 1 week - replaced with either more carbs, snacks in between or fruits and vegetables to fill in my extremely hungry stomach.. which sadly doesn't really help! It is just not satisfying! I just realized that I am more carnivorous than I thought... *sobs* I might as well turn vegetarian

Suddenly, KFC became my worst enemy~
Suddenly, mata kerbau doesn't sound appealing anymore...
Suddenly, I have to bid farewell to beancurd... (no more agedashi tofu)



and MOTHER of ALL SUDDENLY-s, roti kosong became my favorite choice of supper...

20 grams.. hmm...

Was at Burger King the other day and this caught my attention.. 

I wonder who did the translation. How on earth is "INGAT" = "THINK" ... and 'keep Lock Always' is just classic! Does that mean I have to carry and keep a lock in my pocket all the time?  I also like how they keep the 'k' from 'keep' as lowercase while 'L' and 'A' from 'Lock Always' get the uppercase treatment. LOL it made it sound like I have to keep a person named  'Lock Always'..

 Burger King, you are just so so cute..

How do you guys pronounce 'Pistachio'?

I always thought it is pronounced as 'Pees-ta-CHEE-oh' ... until Natalie Tran proved me wrong in her latest video as 'Pees-ta-KEY-oh'. So I google up the word and 'OMGWTFBBQ! it IS pronounced as 'KEY-oh' .... I've gotten it wrong all these years. Eeeks, so embarassing..

But it does make ALOT of sense now reading it as 'Pees-ta-KEY-oh'. Just like macchiato - 'ma-KEY-ah-toe'. Italians..... LOL

And then today, I read a post on FB and apparently 'hiccup' isn't really spelled that way. It is 'hiccough' but the '-ough' pronounced as 'up'. Funny Funny English.. According to wiki, '-ough' has up to TEN(10) pronunciations.

/ʌf/ enough, hough, rough, slough, tough

/ɒf~ɔːf/ cough, trough
/aʊ/ bough, drought, plough
/oʊ/ dough, furlough, though
/ɔː/ bought, brought, ought, sought, thought, wrought
/uː/ brougham, slough, through
/ə/ borough, thorough
/ʌp/ hiccough
/ɒk/ hough
/ɒx/ lough

And to think we use these words everyday... I didn't even realized they are all read differently.

该怎么说起呢?现在的生活过得很矛盾。

我是一位工作狂。以前是。现在也是。但自从知道身体状况不佳时、整个人就好像失去了方向。

不想再拼了。不想谈梦想了。更不敢对自己有什么期望了。什么买房子呀,什么高薪职位呀。。统统都变的不再重要。根本就提不起劲儿。

问题来了。过的那平平无趣的生活、我又觉得不充实。我根本就不是那种可以随随便便找个"几千块"的工资就满足的人。

想往上爬、怕心有不足。明知道身体状况多多的根本就做不久、活不久、就更让我想打消这念头。想慢下脚步放个轻松、又觉得这不是我个人风格!金钱上也绝对是个绝大的问题!

朋友都以为我过的好轻松。家人都觉得我过的好潇洒、轻轻松松做个Freelance就觉得我会很满足似的。好无奈。有烦恼时,也不知道该往哪唉声叹气。。

唉。。

I've seen and met a lot of men who brags about how brave they are, how daring they are, how they would handle situations if they have the authority to do so, how they would beat the hell up people who go against them and etc. But more often that not, their character does not live up to what they were bragging about - usually quite the opposite.

I'm a very simple person who believe in 1 thing. If you can't handle the smallest of things in your daily life, you can't handle anything at all. So, stop bragging about how good you are and how good you can be.

Real men are those who can get the most miniscule job done. Even washing your own cup counts!

Don't waste your energy telling me how you can manage a business when you can't even pay the phone bills ON TIME every month.

Don't waste your energy telling me how brave you are, you can swear and fight off road bully when you can't even pull yourself together at the sight of a smallest drop of blood.

Don't waste my time telling me how GREAT and MANLY you can be when you can't even get hold of a waiter in a busy Chinese restaurant - your very timid voice whispering "ex..cuse me..." pisses me off more than anything in the world! Man up!

All talk and very little action makes you close to wimpy girl..... -lor! You can say and brag about anything you want but sorry, you aren't getting any respect from me.

Brag brag brag brag macam sam-seng!

One should not simply use statement like:

"OK-lor, since all of you said that, ok-lor. Can-lor!"

It sounds really aggressive, as though we're forcing you to agree on things. And the fact that you're saying that in a high pitch tone with that fucked-up-face is absolutely annoying. C'mon, if you have something to say, by all means, say it out loud. Let your concerns be heard!

I really hate people who has alot to comment but gives no solution. If you can't accept something, give alternatives, be honest and say it in a way that everyone can comprehend. Tell us what do you think, why don't you think it's a good to do so. Not just ' OK - lor ' . Why do you think we asked you for your opinion in the first place? Because your opinion matters!

And when everyone gets frustrated over your passive aggressive ' OK - lor ' , you start raising your voice and in turn asking us why we were sighing and giving you the shitty look. Seriously, have you no sense at all?

What I experienced:
  • iTunes kept cancelling my iPhone Wi-Fi sync
  • iTunes couldn't detect my iPhone over USB cable
  • iPhone kept asking me to 'trust' my computer
What I did:
  •  Re-installed iTunes
What happened next:
  • iPhone no longer asking me to 'trust' my computer
  • iTunes finally detected my iPhone over USB cable
  • iTunes continue to cancel my iPhone sync (both Wi-Fi and USB sync)
What I did:
  • Sync new songs 1 at a time and see which causes the problem
What happened next:
  • As predicted, 1 of the new songs seem to be the problem
What I did:
  • Removed the Album Artwork from the faulty song file
What finally happened:
  • Finally got to sync all new songs

iTunes. I didn't know you have preferences over album artwork.
