You are sooooo beautiful....

There are two sides to the argument about modesty. Argument A: boys can't control their eyes or their thoughts so girls must stoop to wearing shapeless, unflattering clothes so as not to tempt them. Argument B: girls are already insecure enough about their body - telling them to cover up will just make matters worse. Well, without blaming bad boys or guilty girls, I have an Amyzingly Creative idea, and I wrote it down just for you...

The Power of Lazy

I read a quote the other day which made me smile - "Organised people are just too lazy to look for things". Having made the switch from messy to organised only recently, I can totally relate. Being organised saves time, which I guess can be called lazy, especially if you're using a Lazy Susan!

Japanese Curry Rice

When asked by people in Japan, "So what's your favourite Japanese dish?" I would reply without missing a beat, "Curry rice". Then, staring at me with one eyebrow raised they would ask, "You know that's not actually Japanese, right?" Yes, I know. But this tastes SO GOOOD!
