So bloody sweet.


Lemons.

Sometimes life just suck for you. 
Ya, It really just gets to you and blows your mind off BAD!

So what do you do?

You take a deep breathe and wait for the moment where you can sleep it off. 

Seriously.

How can you amend disasters? It's always adviced to solve your own shitty problems. But sometimes you just need to walk away for awhile and come back facing it when you feel clearer and refreshed. 

Fact.

The inevitable questions.

Why do people like to ask soooooo many questions?

When your a kid, the questioning starts. NO! They are not good conversation starters and now look at where questions bring us to?

How's school?
How's your marks?
Why are you here?
Why are you NOT here?
Why do you always go out?
Why are you attached so young?
Who is your boyfriend?
Why are you single at this age?
Why are you not married yet?
Where is your husband?
When's the good news?
When's #2?
When's #345678910???

And then the universe doesn't stop there. Your kids get the hit next. 

Where's your kid?
How is their school?
.... And the list goes on.

Are these questions be really necessary?
Why and what's the purpose of asking really especially since you are not even from the family??

Nothing really changes if you knew the answers anyway.

Just hate questions. 

AND NO. NO BABY NOW. NOT UNTIL 30 YEARS OLD PLS.

Having dinner at home.

Home cooked meal vs. Takeaways - I am a firm believer of having at least one meal a day to be prepared at home.  At least I know and I ensure my family has had that 1 portion of vegetables, meat/fish and fruits.


Where got time?? - On normal busy weekdays that meal would be dinner. I prefer to cook something less fancy that requires not more than 15 mins after a long day. Weekends of course are meant to play/experiment with time food. Since we have the luxury. 

Cook?? I only know how to boil egg and make instant noodles - I definitely don't think it is difficult to cook. Anybody who knows how to cook instant noodle or boil an egg, should be 'qualified' enough to make their own or their family's meal. I will start showing u how easy it is and hopefully more people start cooking their own dinners. :)

Recipe?? - it's not something you should fear. Never ever follow a recipe from A-Z. The keyword is read. Understand. Improvise. Recipes should be guides or inspirations unless you want to learn a basic technique. 

How to start?? - start simple. I'm not even chinese and I cook Chinese style very often. Here's how below. Good luck. 

Chinese dinner:

1) stir fry vegetables in garlic and soy sauce 

Ingredients:
- oil
- garlic; sliced or chopped 
- soy sauce
- Kailan or any leafy vegetables you like

Method:
stir fry

Garnish:
fried onions

Improvisations:
Try different types of vegetables.
Try adding shiitake mushrooms.
Try using oyster sauce.

2) ABC Soup

Ingredients:
- carrot, diced
- potato, peeled and diced 
- chicken/pork, sliced
- soy sauce/salt to taste
- water

Method:
boil till carrot and potato turn soft and breakable. 

Garnish:
fried onions

Improvisations:
Try adding celery/ lotus shoots or any of your favourite vegetables. 

3) omelette

Improvisations:
Try adding prawns

Garnish:
Spring onion

4) steamed fish (for those who have extra time)

Ingredients:
- fish whole or fillet; cleaned
- garlic; sliced
- ginger; sliced
- soy sauce/salt to taste


Method:
steam over boiling water. (Tip: I prepare this while cooking rice or while cooking soup)

Garnish:
spring onion

Improvisations:
Try with prawns. 
Try adding sesame oil.

Pink & purple ombré nails

Pink & purple ombré nails anybody?
Let me teach you the easiest way to achieve these:

Step 1: Apply a light base colour to your nails (i choose baby pink) that will contrast nicely with the darker colour (I choose purple) which you will use for the nail tips or nail ends (whichever you wish the gradient to start from, I did purple to pink gradient). Wait for it to dry (nothing too difficult yet? It gets easier)

Step 2: Grab a makeup sponge or a cloth that's porous, you need a sponge or cloth that's porous so you can create the sponge effect (doesn't work with cotton bud/wool/tip). I used cloth. Next pour small amount of the purple polish onto the and dip the corner of the sponge into the polish. Now dab the sponge onto the tip on the nails, and continue dabbing down to a about a third of the nail, making sure the majority of the polish is on the tip. You want to create a gradient look where the dark eventually fades out toward the bottom of the nail.

Step 3 - Apply a colour that's inbetween the contrasting colours and dab where the two colours meet. This will help all the colours to blend into each other. For this look you can use a dark pink. I left this out and blended both nail colours.

Step 4 - You can finish off by applying a layer of glitter polish over the top and use this to set my gems and fimo clay stars/flowers. I omitted this. Lastly i applied a thick coat of clear polish over the top to seal everything in. Finally, clean up the edges with a cotton bud and varnish remover.

It really is that easy! I was quite pleased as to how it turned out, considering i have never done this nail effect before. I'm looking forward to doing this again in more colours!

Disclaimer: Sorry for the unprofessional picture. It honestly look better than the picture, I swear!
