Times when I listened to my parents, I felt happy 🙂
What happens to me today at work was during lunch time, my colleagues were awed by the way I had my lunch.
I managed to finish up my plate full of food, and leave it at the bin tray area without wasting any extra.
Then I saw the rubbish bin containing all the fresh varieties, half eaten apples, leftover meat, some bones, and mostly vegetables.
It looks way like a fridge to me. This is so devastating to see people of good dining etiquette doing this, throwing unwanted food away and take more than what you need (our lunch are provided by the company).
From what my FS experience taught me by far, is that food wastage > food consumption.
It is so undesirable in developed countries especially when food are wasted through consumption as compared to low-income countries where loss occurs in production stage.
People are choosy, they skip certain foods( can be due to food allergies), take food for granted, not appreciative of the choices we have here. May be due to many reasons altogether, however this is a very serious case.
There must be something I can do, or any body can, to help save, conserve food, so that we can benefit the poorer and less developed countries.
Just like what my colleague said, she hardly see any teens or adults of my age who is not choosy and particular about their diet. Everybody has to eat, it is so important to eat well, one has to start learning how to not waste food before you decide what is best for you.
You may be skipping or throwing away all the nutrients you need for your precious body system to work fine!
Don’t understand kids nowadays -.-
One more thing to note:
When a kid eats well is always making his Mother happy, because what satisfies a mam most, is to watch her beloved child finished up all her cooking.
I am very much in love with GN.A 🙂
Don’t know why, I am hardly interested with boy bands other than Big Bang.
But her their debut recently has found its way to my head.
I finally understand why Mam always felt guilty and apologetic towards me and my siblings.
I am slowly learning how to appreciate the finer things in life, especially when me and Mam sat down and chat through the night.
Thought the reason why she hated herself for being such a failure was because she couldn’t provide for us. But no. It’s because she didn’t give us a complete family.
And that she had a happy childhood, and she thinks we don’t have enough for ourselves as we grow up.
I can understand how it feels to for a mother to wish the best for her children. And what it takes to be a very brave and cool MOM.
Like how she can actually step on a cockroach bare-footed to protect us. Am I exaggerating again?
She did step on it, but is to defend her kitchen. hahaha!
I love it when she talks about her ‘animal farm’ back in Kuching and Miri Malaysia.
Her home town where she stayed under the roof of long houses, big backyards and chicken cages.
She used to own a monkey, a sausage bitch, two Toms, a mouse-deer, hundreds of fishes, a baby white-head owl and many more.
How cool it is that she gets to have so much fun, climbing sour-sop trees, and playing with quick sand over the hills.
But still, I told her to not feel bad because even if she is able to get us kids into a bungalow in Singapore, I still believe none of these can happen to us. It is just different.
We’re at a different era, unless you export us to some country side away from Singapore.
I am still a proud Singaporean even if so much changes taken place here, which adjust our working and living lifestyle, our attitudes.
Hopefully things will get better!
I shan’t worry for QAD that much, not to make her feel miserable.
But who don’t wish for her to get well soon?
Just that there is nothing much I can do except be there for her when she needs me.
Give me a call or anything.
So I will try not to make myself fall sick or paranoid when nothing happens yet.
Precaution is good, but I trust herself and her Fam are taking good care of her:)
Take care my dearest QAD 😀
Watched many Youtube videos and came upon some psychotic Maury’s Show episodes.
Totally not worth my time!
Off to Mam’s side now
Will give me things to eat.
Will stay up cook me meeeeee
Not afraid of kaaachuaaaaak.
