School and Its Challenges

School started three weeks ago on the 10th of August. Another phase of tertiary education has begun. I was eager to experience what university life will show me. I thought it would be similar to polytechnic education, but I was wrong. Never knew that university would be so difficult to manage.

In the polytechnic, as long as you revise your work, complete your tutorials and finish your assignments on time, it would not be difficult to score a decent grade. I had friends who only studied a month before their exams and still managed to do well. However, it is not the case in university. If you plan to just learn how to tackle questions, you probably be only able to pass. The concepts of the study is the most important which is why questions in exams and tests always change to test students' understanding. And unless you are a genius, you are bound to spend a lot of time revising and going through lecture notes.

Time is another challenge. Juggling time to study, time to rest, time to do outside activities like meeting friends and etc became difficult. Initially, I wanted to join activities in school but I was worried about the work load that slowly piled up over the days. I also started feeling sleepy in class which meant I needed more time for sleep. I would be hit with this thought on some nights, "Should I sleep? But I think I should revise a bit more."

These challenges are just the tips of many icebergs. It is an eye opener, it constantly reminds me of my priorities and the balance. I must also seek the strength of the All Mighty One. I must remind myself not to be swamped with work. How exciting! Thank God for such a wonderful experience.

If I see this, I will not buy their products. How will I know that it is a brand new set? Okay, maybe they are displays and if you order the furniture, a new set from the warehouse will be sent to your house.

I was shocked at the sight. Clearly not a very professional scene. The man then proceeded to use the small coffee table to read his newspaper after the meal.

When I walked past the display for the last time, I saw the bigger lady sitting comfortably on the white sofa with her back rested and one leg crossed over the other, checking her phone. 

I even saw a signboard on another sofa that said, "NO RESTING". Enough said.

Sate! (pronounced "Satay")

During my trip in Bali, we ate pretty normal things most of the time for our meals. There were reviews on the internet talking about two "must-try"s in Bali. They are Suckling Pig and Crispy Duck. Crispy duck was on the pricey side at 68,000 rupiah. Suckling pig was much cheaper at just 25,000 rupiah. Both had interesting flavours and was definitely worth the try.

On the fifth day of our trip, the group decided to break up and go do whatever we want or need. So it was the boys and the girls. While walking down from Seminyak back to Kuta, we walked past a stall along the street! With a stunning green signboard that spelt out SATEGULE. All I recognised was the word SATE. Satay!
Authentic street style! Bali style!

It is advised to eat from street stalls that cook your food on the spot. That way, you have more assurance that the food is safer for consumption as compared to ready-cooked food waiting to be served. We ordered ten sticks for chicken satay each, and a bowl of kambing (mutton) soup.

Preparation before the fire,

Into the fire!

The charcoal he used were small and easy to burn. Looked like charcoal chips! If you notice the uncle's fingers, I guess he got burned quite a bit. :(

The satay was served differently over here. We are used to seeing the satay and sauce separated from each other. But here, they will pour the sauce on the plate and use the ten sticks of to swirl and coat the meat.

The sauce tastes and looks different too. It is smooth instead of chunky peanuts in it. It has a nutty taste and a slight "burnt" taste too. Very nice! :)

And because it was so good, I bought another ten sticks to takeaway! Look at how they wrapped my satay sticks!

Newspaper wrapped satay with the sauce inside, like newspaper wrapped fish and chips! Oh boy!

I was blown away by this awesome dish! Delicious! Definitely unforgettable! I will highly recommend those going Bali to add this into their 'to-do-list'! The kambing soup was really good too! But the satay was just unbelievable. Lastly, a bowl of kambing soup and ten sticks of satay just cost 10,000 rupiah each! That is S$1.50 for AWESOMENESS!

Wind Portal

I was in Popular at Thomson 2 days ago, reading the Stuff Magazine on gadgets where I came across this awesome looking product! The interesting design made me want to read about it.

And guess what? It's a fan! Wooooooooooooooooooeeeeeeee!

It's a product from Dyson. A company that I first heard of it from Chris. Their first main product was a vacuum cleaner which did not rely on filter bags. Instead, it generates a mini cyclone inside the machine to suck up dirt. Because of that, the vacuum does not lose suction caused by dirty filter bags.

And this is their newest gadget! It's called the Dyson Air Multiplier. Probably inspired by jet engines. The vents at the base sucks in air, it then accelerates the air inside and forces it out! Resembles a Portal where things go through it get sucked into lightspeed! I showed it to Mum and she said cleaning would be easy!

I believe the price will be considerably more as well. If I remembered correctly, the small, handheld vacuum costs about $150+, which was about the same as the typical household sized vacuum.

The design is nice! The idea is fresh! Inspiring! :D

Should I be Mr Pringles?

Hmmmffff!! :)

If I how does the Pringles logo look like, I believe many will say it's the face with the mustache! Well, I thought of growing a mustache after I saw an advertisement by Louis Vuitton which is shown below. (It took me a long time to find this on the net!)

Look at him. So calm and collected. It gives me the "Shakespeare, classy, arty, high end" vibe. Hehe. Hope B is fine with it! :D Looking forward to no shaving for an indefinite period! Wee! Soon there will be 2 people in the family with mustaches.

My dear readers! What do you think of this?
