Smart Substitutions!

Tuesday, January 17, 2012

I was really craving a McDonald's Chicken Prosperity Burger. I also liked the curly fries and orange McFizz that comes with it but while the burger by itself is not so bad, the drink (the McFizz) is sugar laden and the fries, well, you know, is full of fat.

Normally, I would walk to the McD's (30 minutes walk) but the wheather is soooo hot, you wouldn't believe! So, I decided to call for delivery!

I waited for like 20 minutes and my burger was here! Oh, I decided to order just the burger only. The chicken was so soft and yummy with the delicious black pepper sauce with slivered onions, in a sesame sub, mmmmmm!

I made myself some orange cordial to sub the McFizz and popped some popcorn (the last of my popcorn) in the McD's paper bag to sub the fries. I decided not to order the fries becoz in delivery, they get soft, and I also decided not to get the McFizz because of all the sugar.

All in all, a very satisfying lunch! And not as unhealthy as the Prosperity set!

CNY festivities! (including foods!)

Monday, January 16, 2012

Well, Chinese New Year is next Monday and my Mom's larder is bursting with fatty (and delicious) snacks! I know I promised myself 'no mindless munching', but it's kinda hard when it's so in your face!

Already I've been munching handfuls of my Mom's famous fried peanuts and having a few bites of pineapple tarts in the days leading up to CNY! What will happen next Monday? when CNY is officially here and the bottles of goodies are opened!?

Oh my!

It's getting harder and harder to get my brother a gift!

Sunday, January 15, 2012

My brother is in his mid-30s and yesterday was his birthday. It's just getting harder and harder to get him a gift that he would like now. When we were kids, it was easy, he loves those little cars that kids play with and adults collect.

But I don't know what he likes now. Maybe next year, I'll just cut all the trouble and give him cash instead! This year, I got him a nice bag of mixed nuts, peanuts, almonds, macadamias and cashewnuts. But he won't accept it. I just left in on the table hoping that he'll take it, but after a week, if he still ignores it, I may have to take it back to avoid wastage.......sheesh!

    I take back what I said - maybe just let it be. Give as you desire. Someone I met said gift-giving it's more about your expression of love for the other person, not an obligation. Cinnamoncat9 is right that if he doesn't accept it, that's his problem.

    I would talk to him. How cruel that he would not thank you, accept the gift, and move on. Really! This is his problem, not yours! How kind to get him a gift!

    Wow, why wouldn't he accept your gift?
Try getting him a book, but ask for ideas or do gift card.

    Depending on your budget, electronics can be good. Like headphones (earbuds), mp3 player, or tablet. Another idea is a gift card or like you said, cash. No one turns down cash! emoticon

    Why don't you just ask him what he would like? That way he gets something that he likes. Make sure that you get at least several ideas and then pick from them.

It's true, use only official ink catridges!

Thursday, January 12, 2012

I made the mistake of buying refillable cheap ink catridges and inks and now my printer head is spoilt! It has cost me more than RM100 to get my printer repaired. I will have to use the expensive original catridges now. And that means less printouts. I can only use my printer if it's really important.

I can' t use it to print DVD covers or fun stuff anymore. Sigh!

CNY is coming soon!

Wednesday, January 11, 2012

Well CNY (Chinese New Year) is coming soon! And this year will be the year of the dragon! As a Christian, I don't believe in Feng Shui and all that stuff, so I don't know much about those horoscope stuff, Chinese OR Western!

Well, most Chinese homes are full of mandarins (healthy) and fatty snacks now (not so healthy). My Mom said that she wouldn't be buying the fatty snacks, but she caved in and bought some anyway. Sheesh!

Anyway, for this CNY, I've promised myself to stop the mindless munching and I'm actually aiming to lose some fat, not gain, this CNY!

    You don't look like you have an ounce of fat, but we all know our own bodies. Way to go!
