Christmas Day had just arrived and I was panicked stricken when I had no idea what to cook for Christmas dinner!
Luckily I found my old cook book that had saved my day!
I didn't want to mess up my kitchen nor wash up a sink of dirty pots and pans.
Hence, I chose BBQ dinner recipes which had resolved my problem.
On Christmas Day we had Garlic BBQ Beef with Mini Potatoes for 4 persons and trust me, it was a simple and delicious meal that we ever had.

I just made 3 sets of Christmas cards for my relatives today.
I didn't spend any money on this card.
Just recycle and reuse the old Christmas gift wrappers, old ribbons and color construction papers that I had from left over card projects.
Christmas Card is not hard to make at all. Just a few simple tricks to get it done in 20 minutes

I made 7 homemade Christmas gifts for my friends last year and they were delighted to received them with open heart.
Most people buy store bought gifts , Christmas cards and food which are expensive during this festive season.
Hence, I wanted to save money and time, cut down the rushing time to chase after suitable gifts for friends.
Glad that these handmade Christmas gifts cost nothing to me.

Do you read the latest posts of a writer's blog or the old posts?
Reading posts that interesting is one of my usual habit and passion.
I don't just read the latest and ignore the old post.
Then, those old post will turn into stale posts. It would be unfair, doesn't it?
I do really, really envy my pet's life.
All she did was lay down on the floor, hiding under my hung out laundry and enjoying life with nothing else to do.
She doesn't catch any rodents, pests or birds.
All she did was meow for her breakfast, lunch and dinner.
Enjoyed her life like there is no tomorrow.
I wish I was a CAT !
I always have the habit to save my articles links in ms Excel.
Do you keep your post links in your hard drive or external storage?
Some people find it unnecessary but it is a good habit to save them when you need those links to interlink in between your articles.

I love kids stories. Better than adults' fiction stories.
Kids stories are full of moral understanding that teaches us both adults and kids to behave the right way in our daily lifestyle.
Do you often find yourself sandwiched in between an adult and a crying kid?
Here is one story to learn
Kids tend to quarrel when they argue over toys, games or gifts.
It is a norm to watch his squabble but how often do moms interfere their quarrel ?
Some moms will stop them and find out the truth or the reason for the quarrel.
However, there are moms who blame each other and get into a big fight instead!

Do you know that you can like your own articles?
I didn't know that.
I thought it was not allowed by the websites but realized when writers mentioned that they can't like their own post anymore.
Do you like your own posts?
Language is a way of communication, how you can speak with another person that can understand what you are saying.
Malaysia has multi-national citizens, Malay, Chinese,Indians, foreign countries people but majority are English spoken although Bahasa Malaysia is the important language.
Funny though, majority Chinese speak broken Bahasa Malaysia.
here are the languages i can speak

But now, it is risky just to rely on hardisk because it may kick the bucket anytime.

Writing online is a big task.
The important thing is to earn money.

Quite a disappointment for me.
Anyway, I am glad that my post value didn't drop to a few cents !

During my childhood days, there were 3-4 big bullies who had bullied my younger brother in the school bus.
Nobody dared to speak up or reason with them.
They were taller, big size and were darn naughty.
I just couldn't stand them bullying my brother. I had to do something and I did.
Guess what I did?
Punch them in the nose?
here is how I deal with them

Here fishy, fishy fishy...
Wait, what about kids?
How do you teach your kids to fish?
Not about real fishing but moral.
Use the phrase, teach him how to fish, not fish for him.
If you keep fishing for him,. your child will never learn how to fish on his own.
If you don't know how to cook well, fear not.
As long you can fry an egg, you can fry a plate of Tuna Fried Rice without any problem.
Just grab a canned of tuna, brine or sunflower oil, some onions, garlic, chop them up.
Then, use overnight rice, better than freshly cooked rice because you need a "DRY" rice, not moist or wet.
Otherwise, your fried rice will be sticky.

Bubblews had made some changes, HUGE changes that everybody is ranting about at this site.
Some didn't get paid as I was and some get paid less than 28 days.
Now, the new rule is International writers had to wait 60-90 days to get their money.
Whereas, UK, USA and Canadians get paid in 30 days.
Yeah, I managed to get my August payment just a few days ago, November !
Imagine, waited 66 days to get a $55 dollars!
here is what i did
Since the Bubblews recent constant updates, earning money at this site isn;t easy for anyone.
Some people earned 20 cents per post while other earned 30 cents but they do write 3-6 posts per day in order to reach $1.
I don't want my post to value that low, so I did lots of interacting that took me 7 hours to earned a dollar for a post.
Is it worth the effort?
Here is how I did. Tell me, am I WASTING MY TIME?

You gotta eat those stinky onions because you will understand the benefits that will prolong your life span by reducing the high risk disease.

My old neighbor was worried that her old house was left vacant without any new buyers.
In fact, her old house had overgrown tall grass, worn off paints and old stuff left on the car orch which made the old house looked a little scary.
Later , I told her some upgrade tips which had helped her old house look better and new. She got some buyers and sold off in a week!

I love to write short notes and ideas that pops into my mind in more note pads.
Problem is, my kids don't because they are hooked onto electronic gadgets !
I believe that had forgotten how to hold a pen by now!
Anyway, I managed to motivate them by tricking them into holding crayons, pens, pencils with these tips:
Here are the tips
I am an old fashion type of mom, always believed old wive tales on how to deal with First Aid using kitchen ingredients.
Actually, if you did it wrongly, it will cause the wound even deeper scar and takes a longer time to heal.
Bleeding, what do you do first?
a) clean with a cotton, apply Yellow Lotion and bandage with a First AId Band?
b) Scream for your mommy?
c) Wash the blood off under cold running water?
d) Di your bloody finger in ice cubes?

Is your working place a smoke free environment?
What about public places such as shopping malls?
Here in Malaysia, nobody is allow to smoke inside restaurants and shopping malls but smokers are allowed to smoke outside the premises.
Same goes with the hospitals.
The good news is, work places such as offices, factories are implementing no smoking in or out the premises.
What do you think of that?

I love making handmade gifts for my family and friends.
These gift ideas are ideal for Valentines Day and Birthdays too.
I used recycle things from home, none of them are store bought.
here are the gifts idea
I had tried everything that were listed in the website!
Lemon grass, garlic, pesticides, red chillies but none of them could get those house lizards / geckos out of my kitchen!
Yes, I left a bulb of garlic on the kitchen tabletop, behind the cabinets but I did a mistake.
I should have CHOPPED the garlic !!
This is how I did it
I have at least a whole generation of geckos in my house!
It is an old house.
Hence, you might expect pests such as lizards, flies, mosquitos, cockroaches and termites running through the door or may I say, ANYWHERE !
Geckos are the worst.
Eats up fresh food on the table and fiddle around breads if not tied up tightly.
What is your random word for today?

Try to talk yourself with happy thoughts and positive points to calm yourself from doing anything wrong or stupid.
