Chocolate Calculator

Don't tell me your age, you probably won't be honest anyway. BUT.. the Hershey Man will know your age by using the 'Chocolate Calculator'! Hee. This is pretty neat.

DON'T CHEAT by scrolling down first! It takes less than a minute. Work this out as you read..

1. First of all, pick the number of times a week that you would like to have chocolate (more than once but less than 10).

2. Multiply this number by 2.

3. Add 5.

4. Multiply it by 50 (I'll wait while you get the calculator).

5. If you have already had your birthday this year add 1759.
If you haven't, add 1758.

6. Now subtract the four digit year that you were born.

You should have a three digit number.

The first digit of this was the number of times you want to have chocolate each week. The next two numbers show YOUR AGE! Lol. Something fun to clear away the Monday blues. Hope you had fun ;)

*Note: This is the only year (2009) it will work, spread it around while it last!

A Joke A Day Keeps The Doctor Away‏

A Russian woman married a Canadian gentleman and they lived happily ever after in Toronto. However, the poor lady was not very proficient in English, but did managed to communicate with her husband. The real problem arose whenever she had to shop for groceries.

One day, she went to the butcher and wanted to buy chicken legs. She
didn't know how to put forward her request, and in desperation, clucked
like a chicken and lifted up her skirt to show her thighs. Her butcher got the message, and gave her the chicken legs.

Next day she needed to get chicken breasts, again she didn't know how to say it, and so she clucked like a chicken and unbuttoned her blouse to show the butcher her breasts. The butcher understood again, and gave her some chicken breasts.

On the 3rd day, the poor lady needed to buy sausages. Unable to find a way to communicate this, she brought her husband to the store...


Hellooooooo!!! What were you thinking? Her husband speaks English!

My Dream Home

When you were young, do you have a vision of the kind of house you want to live in when you grow up? What style will it be? The color of the walls? Scent of the room? For those of you who are already living in the home of your dream, lucky you! I want mine to be a French/ Swedish country style, complete with wood flooring. These pics pretty much make up the look of my dream home. Welcome to 'my' house! :D

This living room.. so simple, so sweet. There are too many to choose from decorology. I had a hard time picking just one.

Bedroom, kitchen and dining area from fryta198.

Sweet kitchen wares.

Bathroom by Housetohome. Boy, I can't decide on the mint or violet one so I chose two. One for each bathroom then. Hee.

I love to read so there has to be a corner for reading. Checkout more inspirations for your home at eschatology.

Workspace and cabinet from Mudrick. Think I'll get really paranoid painting/ drawing at this lovely white desk.

These cool pics feature the home of an Interior Designer Shannon Bowers. Nice soothing colors.

I want Angels and Fairies in my home too! You can get these pretty figurines here.

Thanks for visiting! :)

Question & Answer Session

Q: How can I calculate my body/fat ratio?
A: Well, if you have a body and you have fat, your ratio is one to one. If you have two bodies, your ratio is two to one, etc.

Q: What are some of the advantages of participating in a regular exercise
A: Can't think of a single one, sorry. My philosophy is: No Pain ... Good !

Q: I've heard that cardiovascular exercise can prolong life; is this true?
A: Your heart is only good for so many beats, and that's it. Don't waste them on exercise. Everything wears out eventually. Speeding up your heart will not make you live longer; that's like saying you can extend the life of your car by driving it faster. Want to live longer? Take a nap.

Q: Should I reduce my alcohol intake?
A: No, not at all. Wine is made from fruit. Brandy is distilled wine, that
means they take the water out of the fruity bit so you get even more of the goodness that way. Beer is also made out of grain. Bottoms up!

Q: Aren't fried foods bad for you?
A: YOU'RE NOT LISTENING!!! Foods are fried these days in vegetable oil. In fact, they're permeated in it. How could getting more vegetables be bad for you?

Q: Is chocolate bad for me?
A: Are you crazy? HELLO ... Cocoa beans! Another vegetable!!! It's the best feel-good food around!

Q: Is swimming good for your figure?
A: If swimming is good for your figure, explain whales to me.

Q: Is getting in shape important for my lifestyle?
A: Hey! 'Round' is a shape!

Isn't it wonderful if these are the answers from your doctor? We can eat all the chocolate we want! :D

New Moon

Calling all TWILIGHT FANS!!!!!!!! New Moon will be out in cinema this November!!! (screaming and jumping around like mad). Here's the trailer!

Honestly, I was a little disappointed with the werewolves. The book described the size of the werewolves as, 'big as a horse' and in this video they look more like foxes. But still, I can't wait!!! November please come faster!!!

I also found this beautiful tune on youtube while searching for more New Moon videos (think I've watched every single Twilight/New Moon videos on youtube). There seem to be some confusion going on with the songs in the soundtrack. Some said this track was in it but some said it wasn't. To solve the little mystery, I visited it's official site for an answer. Sadly, this track wasn't in the Cd. :( I'll share it with you anyway.

Enjoy to this nice one by Yiruma, River flows in you.

Cute Cute Cute!

Checkout SPCA Singapore's latest Ad campaign! Aren't they sweet/cute??? The last pic makes me giggle out loud. Picturing my Nono doing that to me, I think I will freak out. lol

Many dogs today are purchased and abandoned later when the novelty wears off. Worse still, some of these poor dogs are being abused. Look at these cute faces once again and tell me how can anyone be so heartless to our best companion? I hope these people get tortured by dogs in their next life! Opps sorry.. didn't mean to curse, I just can't help it.

If you are an animal lover or you have a pet yourself, don't you think it's time you do your bit to help these poor creatures? For more information, please visit SPCA International site here or SPCA Singapore here.

"An animal's eyes have the power to speak a great language." ~ Martin Buber

"If having a soul means being able to feel love and loyalty and gratitude, then animals are better off than a lot of humans" ~ James Herriot

"A dog has lots of friends because he wags his tail and not his tongue." ~ Anonymous

"The greatest pleasure of a dog is that you may make a fool of yourself with him and not only will he not scold you, but he will make a fool of himself, too." ~ Samuel Butler

I couldn't agree more with these quotes.

To my beloved Nono: ''Even though you really drive me nuts sometimes, I LOVE YOU all the same! (just try not to poo/pee too many times a day).''

The Nightmare Is Here

Hands up for those of you who haven't get a chicken pox! Good to know I'm not alone (my hand was up as well). :(

My brother got the pox last Sunday.. Instead of quarantining himself, he had been walking all over the house without a shirt on! He even came into my room several times a day to update me his condition. And each time before he left, he added, ''The doctor says you have 98% chances of getting it.'' Right! Thanks but I don't need the reminder! I could have scream at him to keep a hundred metres away from me but then I thought since I'm going to get it sooner or later, there's no point in avoiding. No, I don't just sit at home everyday to wait for the pox attack, I carry on my life as usual.

This reminds me of a funny picture when we were young. Several of my cousins got their chicken pox all at the same time, but instead of hiding away from them, we continued to play with them. I wanted to get the pox so badly after the adults told us that the older you get it, the more painful it will be. I even run to hug my cousin! Sadly, I still did not get it. lol. Is there a possibility that some people might never get a chicken pox in their lifetime? I hope I'm one of them..

During this period of time, my friends have been checking in to see if I've shown any signs of chicken pox. They seemed more concern than me. And I joked that I shouldn't be getting chicken pox since I do not consume chicken! (I'm a pescetarian). lol. Don't worry my friends, I'm still feeling strong and energetic! hehe. If I get it anytime soon, I'll update again.

This weekend I'm hoping to head out to the beach. Please pray for a pox-less weekend for me. Enjoy yours too! :D

Holly Rocks

My very FIRST purchase from Etsy! I've always like necklaces.. all kinds of necklaces.. funky ones, cute ones, elegant ones.. (one day I should take a pic of them all and show it off here). Anyway that's beside the point.

Two weeks ago, I decided to take a little tour around Holly's store and found this lovely vintage key necklace. I dropped her a message hoping she could make a longer chain for me, that I would pay a little extra. Guess what was her reply? She said she could do it at no extra cost because.... I AM HER BUDDY! Did you hear that? She's calling me, 'BUDDY'! (I hope she don't just call everyone her buddy).

You might be curious how Holly and I came to 'know' each other. Holly was one of my very dear faithful blog readers (of course I am hers too). This sweet lady would always be the first few person to visit my blog each time I made a new post. After frequenting each other's blog for a period of time and interacting through blog comments, we got to know each other better. That should be how 'buddy' came about. (Anything you wish to add on, Holly?) Not only that. Holly discovered my passion for music through my blog and so, she included a cute music note keychain to the package. How sweet is that! :) (Sorry Holly, I hope your customers are not going to start pressing you for free gift after reading this).

I really like the contrast of the silver chain and the key.

Please visit her store, Hollyrocks (notice her cute store name) or her blog here. I swear you will never get bored reading her blog.

Once again, thank you for the extra effort my dear buddy. You rocks! ;)
