The more you want it, the less likely you're going to get it...

celebrate good times.... c'mon!

This has been true for the past few months really. It always seems that the more I want it, the less likely I'm actually going to get it. Being indecisive at times hurts the decision-making process too. But well, at long last, everything is hopefully coming to an end. Less worrying about the output, now all we need to focus is on the input. Money, money..... money! Haha. :p

As again I believe, "Tomorrow will be a better day". And it surely is turning out to be so! Oh, I'm so happy! Haha.

Vote for your Favourite Seafood Recipes!

Oh I love cooking, which is why during my time out at home, I'd usually spend it by sniffing around for other people's recipes and try to make some modifications of my own. Haha. So, if you're into seafood recipes, I'm sure you're going to love the top five recipes listed at the chef's cook off at 2008!

Personally, I favour the "Pan Roasted Glazed Rockfish with Peas and Carrots" by Chef Tafari Campbelleven from Maryland, even though the other dishes such as the "Colorado Striped Bass Panzanella", "Texas Gulf Shrimp", "Mississippi Redfish Courtboullion with Seafood Dirty Rice" and "Louisiana Shrimp and Andouille Cassoulet" do look extremely delicious too.

Well, the reason I chose the recipe is because I love fish, and I can't really take shrimps, especially if it's the key ingredient in a dish. But if I were to cook this dish, I would most probably change the type of fish to ones that are more easily obtained here locally, perhaps salmon? Haha. Would love to try it out! Besides using domestic seafood is certainly going to be more fresh. And that's important especially when we're cooking seafood.

So if you're interested in delicious seafood recipes, why not visit the site and vote for your favourite recipe? You stand a chance to win a trip to New Orleans! Prize package includes two Southwest Airline roundtrip tickets, hotel accommodations, dining experiences and more! So come on and vote...

Lack of responsibility

Some people are just not cut for any duties that requires any sort of responsibility. How can you arrange me for an appointment when the person whom I'm supposed to meet isn't around?? What is wrong with these people?

Need a knock on the head to clear up some spider webs inside? Fancy calling yourself a senior executive when you can't even handle such a trivial basic things! How did you even get hired in the first place?

Find out if you're crazy or normal

I believe everyone has their own signature quirks that define their personality. But then again, the thing about quirks is that, most of it is just a matter of perspective. Some may see the behaviour as something odd, while some as plain ordinary.

So if you have been getting odd stares from people whom you may or may not know, perhaps it's time to see if you have one of those strings of weird characteristics. Yeah, to see if Are You Normal or Nuts? But hey, that aside, maybe it's just nothing at all. Maybe some will actually find the quirkiness cute! As I've said before, it's just a matter of personal opinion.

Head over to Reader's Digest's Are You Normal or Nuts? article, and you can have a fair idea of whether or not your quirkiness is just something cute or requires professional attention. I actually think I have this thing in me about using things till they become all worn out before getting any brand new ones. This is especially true for my sandals and my hair clips. From what I've read here, "...if you value things merely for their utility, then your example may prove something profound: You are normal, and the rest of us, in our mad materialist dash, are, well, mad." Oh, so true! Why waste when you can still use them? I don't think that is quirky, ain't it?

And there's one more oddity about me is that, I tend to have this feeling of jumping off tall buildings, especially off a balcony or something. It's written here in Reader's Digest Psychology Articles that it's just a fear of heights. Just like this case here, "I'm afraid to go to high places, like tall bridges or even the balcony at church. And it's not because I'm afraid I'll fall -- it's because I'm afraid I'll jump! I don't want to kill myself, but I do want to experience that sense of flying or floating." So it's not like I want to kill myself or something, it's just that inner subconscious self speaking because it's terrified of heights.

And if you're up for some laughs, why not head over to Reader's Digest Laughs to lighten up the mood on this Monday eh? Go read something funny and laugh about it!

Being taken advantage

Stop making yourselves look or even sound so desperate.
You know we're much better than that. So why bother lowering our standards, and in the midst of it, throwing your integrity to the dumps just for a few hundred?

We set the rules and they play the game. It doesn't matter if we're still a young organization. We're not cocky, we're not snobbish, but we have to protect our own interest. Allowing ourselves to be taken advantage by all those suckers out there is the last thing that I wish to be happening to us. I want us to win this game, but not at the expense of getting pushed around.

Please... think before you make any decision.
