~Came across this article a while back~
There is really no need for any article to prove that
keeping a pet has all the benefits. I can think of
so many other benefits not listed in that article.
I guess I'm seriously considering to adopt a nice little dog,
even though I have so much going on.
But still, there's so much to consider about,
and the decision will only be made if I can be sure
I would have enough time for it.
I can never express how much I love my previous dog.
Even though I wasnt with her all the way to the end,
since I got married, moved out and all,
she was always there.
To greet me at the door.
To cuddle up in front of the TV.
To peek through the toilet door while I'm inside.
Even with all the ups and downs I've gone through,
my family was the only people who never judge,
and she was part of that family.
I still greet her every time I visit my mom.
Just like how she would rush to the door with those tiny paws.
I dont think she can ever be replaced.
But yet, I would love to provide for another fur buddy.
Of course, the decision will be on whether
there will be enough time (and also money) for it.
If these work out, be prepared to see my fur buddy
running around in my living room. =D

Well, I'm not sure if it's already old news.
But I believe it's still an issue many are concerned about.
Yep, I'm talking about the CPF here.
Probably sparked off since the lawsuit
between LHL and the blogger.
Since then, I've seen and read many
stories and articles about the CPF
and how those people cant withdraw the money
from CPF upon retirement.
I must say many of those are sad cases,
but what's worse is that there isnt much done in helping them.
Personally, I dont care what CPF do with the money
that got deducted automatically from my salary every month,
or the money that my employer is obligated to pay.
Neither do I care about the little interest that is given.
But since it's still our money, why do they have
that many complicated policy to prevent people
from getting their own money?
It's just like forcing you to contribute part of your salary
for an insurance, and change the policy as and when
they feel like it.
But still, I guess not much will be done to improve anything.
Really hope that I can be able to see the 'good intention'
that the govt have for us, when they did all these.

A little post away from all the bad things on Earth~!
I've been really into cooking recently.
Would try to make a point to cooking dinner
as often as I can, which is every other night when there's no classes.
The best feeling of having someone to cook for and appreciates it.
I'm thinking to compile a recipe book for all the food so far.
But with all the endless weekend event, it can be really difficult.
Still, I'm working towards it, and will most definitely see to it!
So, today I shall share one of my favorites. It is also
one of the most genius recipes I've come up with.
I was so excited when the idea struck me!
Curry Baked Rice!! (With Korokke~)
The Korokke was made a few nights back and kept frozen to be fried when needed.
Ingredients are really simple. Potatoes to be boiled/steamed and mashed.
Added with minced beef, seasoned and fried with some onions.
You can basically add anything you like into it.
That's the beauty of cooking at home!
I added some cheese in each Korokke and it was great~
Lastly, coat each Korokke in flour, egg, then panko.
Deep fry till golden brown.
I took recipe from this recipe, but not following is what I always do. =D
Curry Baked Rice~!! Totally yummy with all the cheese on it.
Was planning on making baked rice for dinner that night.
And it just struck me suddenly. (Maybe I was hungry for curry too)
I replaced the ingredients with simple processed meat.
Crabstick, sausages, cheese tofu.
Added in regular amount of white rice (200g) with a little more than 400ml water.
Added Japanese curry cubes to taste.
Ar-gar-i-ration is one of my worst weakness in cooking.
It is almost impossible to follow the recipe down to the very grain of rice!
Luckily, the food turned out to be good so far. =^-^=
After the curry cubes dissolved into the water, pour everything into the rice cooker and cook as normal.
After done, transfer to a baking pan, and shower with cheeeeeeeeese~
As much as you like to have, and toss it into the oven.
Lastly, garnish with preferred topping.
I think I baked at around 180C for 5 to 10 minutes,
and garnished with furikage as shown in the photos.
Totally worth waiting!
Not to mention that you can have some free time when it is in the rice cooker/oven.

Blogging at work, the best way to act busy to your boss.
(With all the typing on the keyboard. XD)
As the title mentioned, it's reflection time~
I guess it's more like a need for me to write this.
To make sure I have closure and truly move on with my life.
(Im not sure if that is really possible though.)
For the past year, I have been thinking a lot.
I guess it wasnt that easy to just take off and start brand new.
Especially after being 'trapped' for that long.
For what I know, the problem was there all along.
Probably with me. But he should be responsible as well.
I must admit that the thought of leaving was from way back.
I don't even belong there.
I could not see what future had in store for me.
If I continued walking down this path,
I was so sure it will not lead me to where I want to be.
I had no future with him, or that family, if that's what it's called.
I started heading to my mom's place almost everyday.
I simply did not wanna be in that place.
I was reaching out and part of me was running away.
Days were spent on nice breakfast outing,
learning cooking from my mom, baking treats, and guitar practices.
I simply wanna do people that I love and things that makes me happy,
instead of focusing on people who dont need me and things I cant change.
I guess at this point in time, I was trying to make my life a better one.
Maybe somewhere deep down inside of me, I was getting ready.
But honestly, it wouldnt end up like it is now,
if not for all these factors. Pushing and pulling me out of that place.
On that fateful day, what he did was more than enough
to push me over to the other side of the fence.
Looking into my eyes and telling me that he loves me
after the event is of no help at all.
Not when he treated me in such a way the whole time.
Having written this much, I'm not trying to say that
I wasnt at fault at all. In fact, I think that the fault was
mainly on me. But a marriage/relationship requires
two people to work together in order to be fruitful.
The same goes to breaking it.
