"I got more views in one hour than I got in a month." -Mariano
The viet food trend seems to be catching on here as I can see NamNam at Dhoby Ghaut with many diners at each table each time i passed by.
Also happened to chance upon another great restaurant Wrap & Roll at Ion Orchard that allows you to wrap your own prawn rice skin wrapping dish... ( forgot the name ). The first time I see a restaurant that allows you to wrap it on your own, pretty cool i must say and the pork is delicious !
You just have to try it and I usually dislike the leafy taste in this prawn rice roll but theirs is pretty all right not too strong.
I believe the grilled pork rice should be pretty decent as well and will go try it the next time i visit the place. They also have a branch at Star Vista at Buona Vista so go try if you are nearby.
So, I went to the dentist today. Do you even consider dentists really doctors? I don't know.
I went to the dentist and guess who has five cavities? Yep, this girl right here. I am not thrilled, but what can I expect. When you puke several times a day, it is only a matter of time until your teeth are destroyed.
The dentist gave me the normal lecture that I hear annually. However, it was a bit different this year. You see, over the last year my eating disorder has really gotten crazy in the realm of purging. I go through phases, and that is just where I am.
The acid has created decalcification on my teeth, which are little white spots that appear almost opaque. This is a common sign of an eating disorder, however my dentist is not aware of that. Which I have to say I am very thankful for.
Currently, I am really into the BBC and their shows. If you haven't seen some of their shows or don't live in the UK (don't worry, I don't either) then you should at least see if these shows play where you live.:
Currently in hiatus (the 3rd season airs in January) Sherlock is a masterpiece remake of the classic Sherlock Holmes mysteries by Arthur Conan Doyle. Created by Mark Gatiss and Steven Moffat, each series contains 3 episodes lasting an hour and a half. Nominated for many awards including Emmy's and BAFTA's, the series stars Benedict Cumberbatch as Sherlock Holmes and Martin Freeman as Dr. John Watson. Each episode contains excellent production values, writing, acting and directing. My personal favourite episode is "A Scandal in Belgravia" the first episode of season 2. It involves as salaciously acted Irene Adler played by Lara Pulver who stuns as the evil villain for the episode who somehow makes the audience root for her in the end.

Today I got to meet my new counsellor. This is the free 'fresh start' cousellor that is supplied by the NHS (for non uk readers the NHS is like Obama Care without the insurance payments or Government shutdown)
Now firstly I would not want anyone to think that I am ungrateful or quick to judge. Free health care is hugely important, and as a public servant myself, I understand that often it is the system and red tape around you which prevents any real difference you can make.
But today I went with some trepidation. The thought of opening up to a stranger, about feelings, fears, insecurities...well to be honest its simply not British!
I had visions of either being made to lay on a long leather couch while someone with a sooting voice tried to relate all my problems to a difficult childhood. Or Hannibal Lector and my liver would end up as a side dish to a bottle of wine.
It was neither, in fact I never even made it inside the door.
They're not the same thing, actually, as Wikipedia so kindly educates us. Jealousy and envy are very similar in the respect that they're both feelings of discontent towards something that someone else has - so 'traits, status, abilities, rewards' etc., but envy is also wanting - desiring - to possess that something.
Oh. Well. I plead guilty. Again.
“And the king of Egypt spake to the Hebrew midwives, of which the name of the one was Shiphrah, and the name of the other Puah: And he said, When ye do the office of a midwife to the Hebrew women, and see them upon the stools; if it be a son,then ye shall kill him: but if it be a daughter, then she shall live.But the midwives feared God, and did not as the king of Egypt commanded them, but saved the men children alive.”(Exod 1:15-17,KJV)
Moses’ fame has defied the stubborn attacks of almost four thousand years plus now. Skeptics and critics alike have come and gone and their fame naturally dies with them but this man’s fame still stands intact.An entire Holy Book is often reduced to his name for I read it that Jesus in His parable quoted the speaker in heaven thus “they have Moses with them” (Luke 16:19) and scholars believe this to be a synecdochical reference to the Holy Book.
And so it is that no one denies it that Moses was a hero. After all did he not generously shower his punches on that cruel Egyptian to save a failing Hebrew brother and left the throne in favor of the bush for the sake of his languishing brothers and sisters (Heb 11:23-29? There is no doubt about it.
But my mind goes back to the women who let Moses breathe despite the government order to have Moses stilled to death, Shiphrah, and Puah (Exod 1: 15), rebels at their best! In a society that underrated and despised women and treated them as garbage, these two souls deserve an accolade for bravery. Standing up against “guns” and “machetes” of the king because of the conscience of right and wrong is something worthy of admiration to me!
A series of conversation topics led me to this question that I am now going to ask all of you:
Do women, after menopause, ever put in a tampon strictly for nostalgic purposes? Along side of that, do married couples after either menopause, vasectomies, or the like, ever use condoms during sex to get that nostalgic rush of when they used to have to wear them?
Obviously, these are personal questions, but reply if you feel so inclined. Seeing as I'm only 23, I have not run into the opportunity to try this out. Nostalgia is an interesting thing. I know I have done specific things to try and conjure the same emotions I once felt years ago.
some i'm dealing with some isues, completely unrelated to my blog. so instead of opening up about it, i've decided whenever i do get antsy and end up awake at 3 a.m. i will rant about something fashion related. so, here we go.
first off, i absolutely HATE the 20th season of Americas Next Top Model. i mean, it's cool that they decided to throw guys into the mix, but instead of choosing potential models, they chose 12 year olds that want to hump everything in their path, while crying, and starting drama over loosing challenges. awesome. and the girls aren't any better, but at least they can actually model. which is what the whole show is about anyway. it seems like this season, the crew was instructed to focus on what goes on in the house, more than on the photoshoot, which bugs the crap out of me, because it has never been this bad before. there was always a perfect balance between the two; a little drama here, a little smizing there. now it's all crying, screaming, complaining, and some stupid chick thinking gothic styles were somehow correlated with mexicans? like, wtf. ANTM had a great run in the first few seasons, and even the next few several (season 15 with Ann, my absolute favorite) and i liked it, because it opened so many viewers' eyes about the modeling world, and how cool it could be. but you know when a show is going rotten, once they decide to add american voters into the mix. because as we all know, America ( United States specifically) DOES NOT KNOW HOW TO VOTE ACCORDINGLY.we vote on looks, and personality, and literally everything besides the actual point. no typical american cares about talent. they only care about the idea of talent. the glorious outcome of pursuing a talent, and looking flawless while you actually engage in that talent. so apparently things were going downhill, and someone decided to make desperate moves (and i'm not blaming Tyra, because like in many leadership roles, other people around you,who really run things, primarily make most decisions(( *cough* *cough* much like our presidency and congress, but that's not important right?)))so yea. one of my favorite shows (former favorite,as of today) is now making a mockery of a beautiful industry.yea.i just needed to get my feelings out about this, because it's really been bothering me. other, more important things have been bothering me too, but this is a small step to recovery.sleep tight everyone.
