Vegetarian Nyonya Laksa

Vegetarianism! Seemingly, for whatever reasons maybe, is a big trend these days? Why, if you are asking me? I think we did speak about this before, but nevermind, sometimes its good I repeat myself like a parrot. Personally, I really don't have the answer, but I think for health reasons or reaching out to god. What about me? Me vegetarian? I am definitely not a vegetarian. Of course, into our food picture, the once a week being a vegetarian due to my other half-half. He believing in vegetarianism for his religious belief and I? Like what? No point rocking the marriage boat just because of a vegetarian meal right (Mee Siam Kuah Vegetarian, Maggi Goreng Mamak Vegetarian, Chinese Vegetable Noodle Soup, Vegetarian Chow Mein, Vegetarian Mee Hoon & Chinese Vegetarian Noodle Soup)? What's there to fuss about anyway? No point. I am the chef at home, and can you imagine cooking a vegetarian meal and then cooking a non for yourself? Duh!

Nuwara Eliya - Sri Lanka (Nava K Seen)

Gosh-Graciously! I slept through like a little baby for at least 4 solid hours. I did. Sincerely. Previous day of heading from one place to another (Negambo & Kandy), and for all the walking I did, inclusive of van travelling, trust me, hours in the van, sitting still or slouching till butt stiffness, can get to you as well, I think socked me up for my lullaby time. Up from bed, by 6.00am, an hour of my pleasure to showering and ensuring I am not leaving behind anything. Checked, rechecked, over and over again. Sometimes this memory failure or non-thorough checking of mine is scary. The last thing I want is forgetfulness. Especially, trust me, hand-phone, camera, laptop and for them their gadgets are the most important. Luggage locked and carried with me prior to handing over to our tour guide, and breakfast tucking in. Tentatively by 9.00am, we hit the road again on this third day.

Thai Green Crab Curry

Thai Crab Curry. The green style crab curry. The dry style curry. And when we speak about Thai green curries, much we have already spoken and I have shared as well? Remember? Otherwise, maybe best you flip to the recipes (Thai Green Fish Curry & Thai Chicken Green Curry)? Will be good as well because you can actually find out that, there are also the different types of Thai green curries. In fact, you can even make a vegetarian or vegan style by, of course, giving a twist and turn to the recipes, and you would have maybe coined your own version (Thai Vegetable Curry & Thai Yellow Chicken Curry).

Indian Style Crab Soup

Don't give me the crab. No, no, seriously, its obviously a crab food story today and definitely an Indian crab story. By the way, have you heard of the Indian crab story? One Indian or the whole lot of Indians pulling down another Indian because he or she is more successful than you? Think about it and I am certain you must heard of this Indian crab story. Quite known amongst us Indians and the whole moral to the Indian crab story? Sadly, we Indians always want to be the best and we, somehow, even to the extent of back stabbing or front stabbing, we will bring down those who are more better than us. Oh Boy! Suppose to be a recipe and I took you around the Indian crab story. Then again, in tandem right because its really Indian Style Crab Soup today.

Kandy (Rambukkana/Mawanella/Kandy) - Sri Lanka

Negambo to Kandy. Indeed, the clear route for the day, but its not gonna be none more except just straight, all the way to Kandy straightaway. Two stops already plotted on our itinerary, the main highlight for most people who embark on the same route is definitely Pinnawala Elephant Orphanage. Pinnawalla Elephant Orphanage, as far as I know, has already been crowned as a clear winner. Recognized as a must experience. If you are asking me, if my opinion matters to you, whether you should include Pannawalla Elephant Orphanage, you might as well. Why hold yourself back or what should by the way hold you back? Coming this far and not covering this world known and world famed tourist spot? To those of you who potentially will be tour travelling Sri Lanka, do make it a point in checking if your trip is inclusive of Pinnawalla Elephant Orphannage. I somehow reckon it will be. Unless your travel agent is a nut case.

Rosken Skin Repair Feet & Heel Balm

Hello all you great people,
For the next 5 minutes, let's say at least, can we forget about beautifying our face? Instead can we pay attention to our feet and heels which I think we tend to neglect (Ellgy Plus Cracked Heel Cream & DU'IT Foot And Heel Balm Plus)? Am I right or I am wrong? Does it ring the bell? We conveniently ignore the wear and tear of our soles? Mind you, our soles, the foundation to our mobility and our stronghold fort support, supporting our whole body for walking us wherever we want to or have to. To those of you who have been taking care of your feet, well and good. Well done. Millions of claps from me to you. But the rest of you, fret not. Its not the end of the world yet. We can still start somewhere. I am no feet angel by the way. Years of, lemme me conveniently blame it on my ignorance, laugh if you have to on my silly excuse, only two years back I realise I better do something. Otherwise, most probably, I may end up paying the doctor instead. Right now, lemme tell you where you can start. Indeed, obviously, a feet cream and Rosken Skin Repair Feet & Heel Balm (RM22.88), packaged in an opaque white plastic tube with a twistable cap is my latest discovery for the last one month or so.

L'oreal Revitalift Anti-Wrinkle & Firming Eye Cream

I agree. I must in fact. Age is just a number. I also really must agree that age shouldn't be an excuse for us for not striving positively in life. Neither, should we behave as though its the end of the road for whatever we wanna achieve? Nooo!! But the real reality we should accept is that age will definitely take a toll on our looks. It will, can you trust me please? Age by far, as far as I know, undeniably can run down your beauty. It will. Still, my question to all of you is, must we speed up?  Must we let go of ourselves or pretty much, allow age to walk over us? We giving up by not doing anything? Of course not. Listen. I know we can't possibly turn back the clock to back then even 5 years ago, yet, there is such a thing as aging gracefully and looking good for our age. Yes please. Yes, and yes and yes. All the yesses please.
