Time Bomb Bio-Clock...Tick Tick Boom?

I was at a gathering with a bunch of gal friends whom I have not met for a long time. My gosh! Boy, was it a long while, cos they turned up either with a kid in their hands or a kid in the stomach. Suddenly, I felt a horrifying wave of silence washed over me, followed by an ascending but clear, crips - tick, tick, tick.

Omigosh, is that my bio-clock ticking? Does it seem to be ticking faster with each beat? I felt like it was going to explode in no time. I look at the mothers and mother-to-be amongst my friends and realised how blissful they all are. Every thread of conversation was baby-related. As much as I like to participate, I can't help feeling slightly detached from the clan. Is that how future gal-pal gatherings would be like - mummy-focus group? I missed the days where we bitch about bosses, weird fellow colleagues or just some idiotic rumours running around our offices.

Sigh... My turn should come eventually. Just don't know when. But I hope the bio-clock will not explode before that...

Familiarising Myself With Chinese Herbs

I was trying frantically to figure out what the many plastic packets in my fridge contains. You see, that's the mother-in-law's fridge (I am just squatting at her place before getting our own). And, guess what, those plastic bags are full of chinese herbs. Sometimes 2 or 3 packets of the same ones... gosh, why does she need so much? can't she replenish when they are finished? Don't they have expiry date?

Come to think about it, I was raised with my mother's love-meals that cannot go without some form of herbal soup. That's Cantonese's pride. Now, it is time for me to take over the legacy...It is time to familiarise myself with all these herbs.

I scoured the internet and found this fantastic site of a fellow blogger - Cuisine Paradise Kitchen's Tips. These photos were my first step of the familiarisation exercise... 3 cheers for those photos!

Write What You Think and Make Money At

I chanced upon this great website where you can write reviews about anything and everything under the sun and get paid. This site pays you US$2 for every accepted review that you write and you can withdraw funds thru paypal once you reach US$50. That means 25 accepted reviews.

Don't fret if your reviews get rejected. You can always re-submit them and click on the 'accept bulk rate' check box and you will get paid much leser but based on what I read on the web, your review will almost always get accepted.

I personally just like this avenue of writing how I feel about particular product or service and sharing the experience with fellow netizens. I have a few reviews accepted already. Here are a few of my reviews... just to share...
