Nathan was bored. So this happened.
My own take on a classic oatmeal cookie recipe with a colourful twist!
I just found out this morning that one of the two History teachers who coached us intensively for the much dreaded GCE ‘O’ levels has lost the battle to cancer and gone to somewhere more quiet and peaceful.
Dear Mrs Gill,
Even though I hated you so much for making us stay back after school to read texts and write South East Asian History notes, I admire your fierce dedication in wanting only the best for your students, going out of your way to conduct lessons after school and making sure we remembered the numerous facts so that we could ace our History paper.
And ace we did.
And now, just 10 years later, we have lost you, a great teacher.
You will always be remembered in our hearts.
Rest In Peace, Mrs Gill.
Sure, beer makes people do nasty and socially unacceptable things like having a good laugh with friends, passing out on the road and becoming extremely talkative and friendly to random strangers, but hey, who knew beer could make Indian people so good looking?
“Yaaay! Drink me! Drink me, Indians!”
Some fun facts!
1) I don’t know who invented beer
2) I had a taste of beer when I was four. My dad let me take a sip, and I found it extremely disgusting and swore never to touch that thing again. But look what happened.
3) Myth: Indian people beat up people when they are drunk. Truth: We don’t need to be drunk to beat up people.
4) While the rest of the world turns red from drinking beer (or any alcohol for that matter), Indians don’t turn red!
5) They turn into something more incredible, and that’s called the 50 shades of beautiful! Don’t believe me? Just see for yourself!
Here’s my friend Prema when she is babysitting the two monsters that she calls her children.
And here’s the same Prema when she’s had a few!
And here’s me when I’ve had no drinks:
Honestly I don’t know what I was doing. And water doesn’t work the same magic as beer does.
But here’s me when I’ve had a few drinks! (warning: images may be graphic and therefore, not suitable for children!)
Even when I was pissed drunk and puking, I looked amazing!
The only hint of me being drunk in this picture are my eyes’ inability to focus on the damn camera!
When everyone was drunk and turning red, I was, well, just being a happy fucker!
Girls just wanna kiss me! Okay kidding, those two were my ex colleagues. I don’t think they wanted to kiss me, though they must have very badly wanted to take this picture.
And here’s me on the train, going back home, looking happy and gorgeous. Nobody would have suspected that I was drunk!
So is that enough evidence or what, that you gotta take your beers more seriously? Results not guaranteed though!
And if you have pictures of friends who look extremely different when they are sober and drunk (ugly to beautiful, beautiful to ugly, or just them passed out) please feel free to share with me!
Adios and keep clinking them glasses! *cheers*
I am back from a hiatus!
During this break of a month, I did a lot of soul searching, mentally prepared myself for life’s unpredictable journey, bought several books at the airport bookstore to keep up with my reading list for the year (target: 24 books), breathed in a lot of fresh air and more importantly…
…I started writing! I am working on two stories at the moment; one is a short story and the other, well, I don’t know! But I keep writing as much as I can for the latter.
Guilty as I am, I really ought to focus on my writing 100%; I have the attention span of a goldfish, but I am slowly, slowly changing that. I hope.
On the other hand, life has generally been good.
Today I made this for breakfast:
Crispy stir fried tempeh and broccoli! As it turns out, this is probably the healthiest breakfast I’ve had in a long time because,
1) Tempeh is high in protein, and
2) Broccoli is RIDICULOUSLY high in Vitamin C!
All I had to do was to stir fry the tempeh pieces in about 3 tablespoons of olive oil, a heaping teaspoon of cumin powder, a teaspoon of pepper, and a generous pinch of salt. Once they turned brown and crispy, I added in my chopped broccoli, gave it a quick mix and left it covered for about 5 minutes to let the broccoli get cooked through, and tadaaa! Breakfast was ready!
Watch this space for more updates coming soon, and till then, adios!
The reason why I have been so quiet is because I have been busy researching on a few vacation spots; I am due for a short holiday in less than 10 hours!
Wanderlust? Let it begin!
