First Week.

Phew…Unit 1 in economics has been a joy and it’s getting even captivating, as we’re about to do the last unit in Microeconomics – Why Markets Fail? (Unit2) What a relief considering that the class has proficiently finished both Units 1 and 3. Macroeconomics (unit 3) was the most intricate unit. This week has been quite a long week. Hoomy no, I’m not complaining: p.

Anyways, in economics I get bamboozled on why in some firms, they undertake a large-scale expansion at a time of falling or stagnant demand? And when firms collude, how does it affect the price mechanism? Should pester my coherent super seniors on that one.

Noodle Soup.

One of the most filling dish that is able to maintain your appetite and consumption of food is by eating soups. I just got out of the kitchen 5 minutes ago, after making my parents their favorite noodle soup, made by me. hehe. Whilst I was making them their ultimate fav dinner dish, I thought about how soup can inevitably fill an individual's tummy. Its got combinations of vegetables (no scarcity in vegetables as one of the family member in Mr.Sulia's family is a vegetarian)

Although, my parents aren't vegetarians, they still requested for a vege with seafood soup which merely means that I'm unable to add 1/4 of chicken stock like I always do to my soups. That was odd? Let us not look at the detrimental side. On the bright side, without chicken stock, it would mean that my dish is monosodium freeeeee! As long as my family is eating healthy, I'm happy. My sister, Rirah is getting fond of fruits & vegetables nowadays. Going to follow my footsteps dear sis? haha joking dek. Anyways, its time to dish the recipe. Tis not that hard, really. :)

Beauty Of Writing.

So forgive me if things aren't as relevant as a blog should be. But what the hey, a blog is a a blog. Need more definition? haha. Anyways, my lil sis Rirah got me into this. At first, I found it impossible to have a blog due to plenty of various reasons.

Mainly, it's time. Ohhh yes, you need at least 30 mins when updating a blog. But when I come to think of it, blogs had been running since the past centuries even before wi-fi or computers had existed. And one advantage to this is that it is able to enhance oral communication skills and writing skills. (my classmates made that remark)


Well, back to Rirah, she led me into making a blog this evening. She said that 'nothing is impossible'. hahaha, a sublime quote from my lil sister, mannn,proud of her! haha.

So here I am with my blog. Exhilarated to what i can do with it. Will be posting up vegetarian recipes soon. Im a big eater just so people know. Food, sigh.
