Orange Jelly

Trying to make orange jelly for dessert. Things needed: jelly powder, mold, orange juice, measuring jug. Spent about an hour preparing the jelly with mum. If they don't turn out well, everyone can just have orange juice for dessert.

I remember what that skin disease is called now. Leprosy (I think). Hope it isn't airborne. I'm so tired from all this spring cleaning for the upcoming Chinese New Year. The house is super dusty thanks to the construction work that is going on, on the opposite. 

Sunday, January 19, 2014


I was seated behind a man with skin disease ("thy ko" - forgot what it's called in English) on my ride home. I didn't noticed it initially. As the journey began, the man seated in front of me reclined his chair. When he did that, his dead skin flakes fell all over me. I didn't think much of it. He then kept adjusting the pillow that was provided. Whenever he did that, more of his dead skin flakes landed on me. It was when he was fidgeting around, adjusting his pillow that I noticed he had skin disease. I started to worry. Would I be infected by him? I was wearing a long sleeved top with a rather big neckline. His dead skin flakes started to gross me. I quickly reached into my bag to grab my sweater, which has a higher coverage and a hoodie. That man adjusted his pillow again. It was like snow falling onto my pants( which was black and that's why it was visible to me that those white spots which were not there earlier started to multiply). Because my top was light coloured, I couldn't tell whether there are dead skin flakes on them. I hastily put on my sweater. Another gush of dead skin flakes flew towards me. I immediately pulled the hoodie over to cover my nose. That man kept fidgeting, and reclining his chair. Each time he did that, I would inch away ( more like avoid (but that'd was no where to evade) the flying dead skin flakes). Just then my phone rang. There was a message. I bent over and reached for the phone which was in my handbag on the floor. The thought of being closer to that man gross me out. I related the incident to the sender. The sender told me to quickly switch places, but the coach was full. The sender then told me to hold my breath, so that I don't inhale disease laden dead skin flakes. How is that even possible? Anyway, not long after departure, food was being served. That man adjusted his seat back into seating position ( thank god). But that move itself cause snow fall. Eew. Shortly after the meal was served, the drinks were served. I daren't place my drink on the tray. I was holding the cup of hot drink really close to my chest, like some crazy famished person,squirming each time the person in front of me moved. If an accident were to happened, I would have been scald. I soon received another message from sender asking whether I ate. How am I to eat? The thought of eating the rice with additional topping (a.k.a dead skin flakes) really disgusting. That was pretty much how the entire trip went. Kind of paranoid now.

                                                                                 Those white spots are the dead skin flakes. Too bad My phone couldn't capture sharp images of the severity of the snow fall.

Animal Hater

Woman 1: You don't like animals, do you?

Woman 2: Why would you say that?

Woman 1: You keep washing your hands after you touch the dog.

Woman 2: (bewildered)

Of course every person who cares about hygiene will wash their hands after handling anything. Even more so if it involves animals, especially those that don't get washed often. Just because someone washes their hands after being in contact with an animal, doesn't make them an animal hater. You still need to be hygienic even if you are obsessed with animals.

Happy New Year

Happy New Year. Welcome 2014. Spent the last evening of 2013 eating non stop. I consumed more sugar last night than I do in a month. From coffee to durian cakes to ice cream. Not forgetting the sour plum seasoning for the guava. Oh and also the pumpkin soup. Since the week before Christmas up till the 31st, I have been indulging on sweet stuff. (Guilty). I'm not even fond of sweet stuff. Took this image from Google. Noticed that they have been really creative with their animation for different occasions.

My new year's resolution for 2014 is to be happy. May I find happiness in everything and may happiness be mine to keep. As for others' resolution for me, is that I be married. Well, keep our fingers crossed and hope that I do find Mr Right this year. Cheers to the New Year.

Happy New Year!
