What I Ate on Wednesday (18) WIAW

WIAW is the perfect chance for me to test out my new Canon EOS 1100 / Canon Rebel T3 one of the most affordable DSLRs on the market. The previous camera I used was actually my mum’s and beginning this year, she has to bring it to work everyday so I figured its time to get my own.

.

But no, I didn’t eat much veggies.

.

A typical Singapore breakfast of fried rice noodles and yellow noodles, topped with complementary veggies and eggs.

.

3 mini  toblerone dark chocolate bars and a white bean bun to satify my sweet tooth. My brother bought them but absolutely hated their taste. Now they’re mine.

.

Rice with stir fried cabbage, stir fried heng cai and fried pork with potatoes.

.

Cleaned Egg Shells

.

My SGD$10 watch

.

My mum’s notes

.

These photographs definitely took less time to edit!

What I Ate on Wednesday (17) WIAW

Dad testing out new bluetooth

Daddy: Eh, S.M, call me now, using the house phone.

Bro: (Grunt) Okay. (calls dad)

Daddy: (whispers) Can you hear me? Repeat what I said.

Bro: Repeat what I said.

Daddy: Repeat what I said.

Bro: Repeat what I said.

Daddy: Repeat what I said.

Bro: Repeat what I said.

Daddy: Repeat what I said.

Me: (laughing and shouting at the idiots) S.M. IS repeating what you said.

Bro: That was the lamest conversation I’ve ever had in my life. 

.

There you have it. The only sort-of-happy conversation in the last 3 days. My mother is giving everyone the most horrible time complaining about practically everything from my her workload to where the bananas my dad had bought was grown. Dang. PMS is fine once a month. But it makes life suck when it takes over.

.

Anyway, its What I Ate on Wednesday again. 

.

.

I made fried rice because there were so many ingredients left in the fridge for breakfast and dinner. (a giant bowl for each)

.

.

And the same ol’ blueberry bun. For ‘breakfast’. 

.

.

Need advice: How do you  deal with your mom’s PMS?

What I Ate on Wednesday (16) WIAW

I’m sure I’m not the only one who wonders how my parents met after (or even without) watching ‘How I Met Your Mother’. 

I could ask “Where does the moon come from?” or “Who invented dust?” or “Where did I come from?” (answer: you burst out of a rock) and there would be an answer, but the answer to the question “How did you meet?” never managed to escape my tight-lipped parents.

.

A decade ago: (yes, I still remember. No one sane forgets what their parents tell them about how they met.)

Me: How did you and daddy meet?

Mum: We were at the seaside.

Me: Together?

Mum: No, separately.

Me: Then how did you meet?

Mum: He kicked a stone at me. It hurt. He said sorry. We met.

Me: Really?

Mum: (silence)

.

A few months ago:

.

Me: Daddy, how did you and mummy meet?

Daddy: I was in university. She was teaching kindergarten kids.

Me: So how did you meet?

Daddy:  She was teaching kindergarten kids.

Me: Mummy said something about the beach.

Daddy:  She was teaching kindergarten kids.

Me: So she was teaching kindergarten kids at the beach?

Daddy:  She was teaching kindergarten kids. (continued to ignore my question)

Me: (gave up and went to the more ‘reliable’ source)

.

1 minute later…

.

Me: Mummy, how did you and daddy meet?

Mummy: He was in university. I was working in a factory.

Me: (confused) But daddy said you were teaching kindergarten kids.

Mummy: No, I was working in a factory.

Me: Okay, didn’t you say you met at a beach?

Mummy: Huh? What beach?

Me: So how did you meet?

Mummy: Can’t remember.

Me: (walked away sadly from the ex-more ‘reliable’ source)

.

I’m sure you’ve had had better luck than me. If you were wondering why I didn’t push harder, it was because they were looking away from me and seemed to be thinking about something else which I presume was not regarding how they met.

Today, I spent 10 hours baking new year pastries… from scratch. Its my first time baking so many so I was kinda slow. Its amazing that when I’m doing something I really like, time goes by so quickly. Everything comes so easily. Like my hands automatically know what to do, where to go next, what action to perform. I wish I could say the same about my academics. I may or may not have watched 20 episodes of a Taiwanese TV programme at the same time (as baking).

.

Here are the products! (Save for the 30+ that went into our tummies) Too bad some cracked. 😦

More about these tomorrow! 😀

What I Ate on Wednesday (13) WIAW

.

I’m a hazard to myself.

I dunk piles of chili onto my rice knowing it would give me a bad stomachache and runny nose. (Its delicious.)

I ride my bike along the road at maximum speed knowing its dangerous. (Try it! But of course make sure the road is empty)

I swim in a thunderstorm (not for long though… the lifeguards make sure I get out)

I cycle in the rain. (What can I say? Its fun!!!)

I grab stuff from the oven without an oven mitt. (Total accident)

I wash a knife treating it like a spoon. (How else do you wash a knife???)

.

My brother is a hazard to himself

He plays basketball.

He plays basketball and gets blue-blacks in both eyes.

He plays basketball and gets blue-blacks on his thighs.

He plays basketball and sprains his back. 

He plays basketball and sprains his arms.

He plays basketball and sprains his ankles.

He plays basketball and gets kicked in the ass.

He plays computer games and makes himself numb to gross blood-splattering violence.

He plays computer games and gets himself kicked in the ass by yours truly.

And no, I have nothing against basketball. It did a terrific job making my brother look completely different from me (seeing the ‘good job’ resulted in him becoming horribly popular and attractive to girls who think he tastes better than chocolate cake what the hell are they thinking????)

What I Ate on Wednesday (12) WIAW

Remember My Brother’s 11 (Really) Stupid (but perhaps logical) Rules for Harmonious Living? You have no idea how true that list is.

Here’s mine.

My 8 (Really) Stupid (but perhaps logical) Rules Beliefs (?) for Harmonious Living

.

  1. Yellow always looks best
  2. Never waste time not doing anything, i.e. staring into thin air (sleeping is not counted unless its an afternoon nap)
  3. When choosing clothes/shoes, comfort >>>>>> design. Duh.
  4. One should not go googoogaga  over mascara-wearing Korean guys whose gender, at first sight, normal people cannot really tell.
  5. Taiwan is a country. (No argument allowed)
  6. Do not eat weird animal parts including but not limited to animal intestines, eyes, heart and liver. Eat only the meat portion.
  7. Don’t do what you don’t like.
  8. My brother needs more muscles. (Ha!)

There’s only 8… I’ll get my bro to draw up my list for me next time…

.

Going on, I haven’t done this in ages, but here we go…

.

.

I made a Reduced Fat Peanut & Orange Frangipane Pie yesterday and had a slice for breakfast.

.

Packet rice with Bitter gourd cooked with egg, black pepper lean meat and a green veggie whose English name I do not know. Same type of packet food as that above.

.

Another slice of pie. Pretty consumable for a failed pie.

.

And a handful of party snack mix.

.

A pretty boring snack day I guess. Not exactly the healthiest day…
