Duck Noodle in Chinese Wine Sauce and Mini Magnum Ice Cream

My parents tapau (Chinese for “take away”) this for my brunch today. It’s duck meat noodles. The sauce tasted like it was cooked with Chinese wine and it’s fragrant.

This was for dessert – honeycomb chocolate ice cream. It came in a Magnum mini size. A bit small and would have liked more to saviour but also good in a way as it limits my sugar intake.

I Don’t Need To Deal With Your Shit

From my post yesterday, you saw how the drink caused me allergies and creates the disgusting sourish sweaty smell after drinking it. I have one of this drink in a different flavour that has been sitting in my fridge because my sister gave it to me during Christmas about 5 years ago and my allergies were more severe that time so I didn’t want to drink it. I have no problems with not having something if I don’t want to, even if it has been in the fridge and staring at me every time I open the fridge, which is everyday and a few times a day.

 

Unwanted apple cider

 

Only when I want to, I will drink it. It’s because I can drink alcohol after testing, that I was ready to try this cider at that event mentioned in my previous post but it’s definitely not suitable. As for that cider sitting in the fridge, I definitely won’t drink it and giving it back to my sister. After so many years and I’m not even going to look at the expiry, it can be thrown away or whatever that should be done with it, I don’t even give a shit. It causes me allergies and I don’t want it.

 

This shows that I really do have discipline. I realised my discipline is in-built and it comes out when I think I need to be, without me realising. I don’t know why I always think I’m the least disciplined person. I guess it’s when I don’t want to do or don’t like something, or maybe I think I need to have some fun, then I won’t be disciplined. Even my favourite beer, Heineken that I got previously is just sitting there in a carton and I don’t drink it because I want to heal my health first. Then my favourite Rosé champagne is also sitting here in the cupboard, I just keep it and let it age with value. I don’t simply drink it. You can’t force me to do anything that I don’t want and especially if it harms me, it can really fuck off. At this age, I already know that whatever people in the past have forced me to do, I just won’t do it well unless I want to do it. It’s not that path that I want, then I won’t thrive in it.

 

Delayed gratification, I have no problem I can see. However, don’t just buy into this concept blindly because I have seen many opportunities go by, thinking that it’s better to wait but hell no, years go by,  you age and you don’t get anything out of your wait. Like Confucius’ statement that goes something like : “eat when hungry, sleep when sleepy”. Don’t complicate your life. Some matters can wait, some matters don’t delay gratification because you won’t get any enjoyment or benefit after some time.

 

It’s not being stuck up, I just have standards and  I’m better than just accepting shit and nonsense from others. Especially when I can just get rid of people that’s basically useless and irritating or have cause harm to me, without any feelings, I don’t have any problems with not wanting to use or consume anything that will cause me allergies. I’m bringing bitchy back. No, it doesn’t mean I want to bring a female dog or a human woman that’s bitchy back; I am that bitch. I’m not going to accept people giving me shit for no reason or be mistreated and expect me to be understand. I always have that bitchy side to me. I don’t go around being bitchy 24/7 but sometimes that bitchy side needs to be shown to some people so they don’t think they can step all over me just because I can be nice. That being said, I don’t need anymore bitches near me as bitchy and bitchy just don’t go together. Some people just get along well, some just don’t.

 

There are some people that are just so unpleasant to deal with, I would rather not. It’s going to make it futile having to deal with people you can’t get along with, it will make you not like your work or business and that will defeat the purpose of doing what you want to do in the first place. Gotta do the Marie Kondo‘s way of cleaning by having more of what “brings you joy” and getting rid of what don’t. Some say that running a small business, you have to be nice. It’s not true. I came across a few not nice business people who are still doing well in their business. Maybe they have became unpleasant due to protecting their business or maybe they were just born not nice. There are many nice business people as well that I have met. One thing is for sure – they need to speak up and make their stand especially when they/their business is being affected. No time to play pretentious nice. It’s fine being diplomatically straightforward but when some people are just not polite themselves, then don’t expect me to be.

 

I end this post with my Mummy’s healthy rice and dishes. She cooked herbal chicken dish today. The sauce that comes out of steaming the chicken is super sweet and delicious, and definitely healthy. Definitely better than shit.

St. Patrick’s Day Festival 2019 Ball

I attended St. Patrick’s Day Festival 2019 – The Ball which took place last Saturday (9 March 2019). It was held at Eastern & Oriental Hotel (E&O) in Penang, in their Grand Ballroom.

 

This is a foreword from Penang Irish Association :

“St . Patrick’s Day is a global celebration of what it means to be Irish; the spirit, the determination, the creativity and that indefinable something that makes us who we are. Ireland is capable of great things and every year, our embassies and Consulates use St. Patrick’s Day to show the world just what we can do.

 

One of our great strengths as a country is our people.

 

We celebrate our rich culture and heritage and we’re proud of its influence on world literature, art and music. St. Patrick’s Day is a great chance for us to share our culture with others.”

 

This is an introduction video I made before I entered the Grand Ballroom and did a live streaming of their event :

 

This is the first part of the live streaming taken during the event :

 

The video ended abruptly during the first video as the streaming stopped unexpectedly after I walked out of the ballroom and went across the hallway towards the buffet area. I made 2nd live streaming after that. The beginning part of the 2nd video was also not smooth as I was experiencing broadband problems. I was using my telco’s 4G internet and I also tried using the hotel’s wi-fi but the same problem occured. That means it wasn’t really the internet’s problem but there must have been some difficulty to get internet at that particular part of the hotel when I walked out of the ballroom and headed towards the buffet area. I was told by the hotel staff that they will be renovating the E&O ballroom soon and they have already begun renovating the heritage wing (where the Grand Ballroom is situated at) of the E&O Hotel Penang.

 

Here’s the 2nd part of the live streaming :

 

I had a great time at this event. It was nice dressing up, consuming the delicious food and beverages, looking at their performances, experiencing the Irish culture of celebration, and looking at the well-dressed ladies and gentlemen and being at the hotel’s ballroom. If you would like to attend this festival, they hold it every year so you can look forward to next year’s celebration. For more information, you can contact Penang Irish Association, which I’ll leave their information below.
