Are you typical?

Anything that reminds me of spring gets a golden star in my books. That would explain why I had to bring this frayed pleated chiffon skirt home!

The only problem is, the frayed hem unravel quite easily. Having watched too many sadistic comedies, I was very worried that my skirt would unravel without me noticing and I would end up with no skirt at the end of the day. -_-

Had lunch at Dragon-i-- frightfully overpriced, but Jing was on a vegetarian diet, so we needed somewhere vegetarian-friendly.

Jing's fried tofu, poor girl.

As opposed to...

My dan dan mian (noodles with minced meat in peanut gravy; it sounds quite gross, but I assure you it's very yummy).


Fried pork ribs.

I'm a big eater, what to do.

Dessert was this uber cute piggie red bean buns! They sure do look like Jing and I huh... *trails off*

Jing intently peeling off the outer skin.

Do any of you guys do this-- peeling the skin of steamed paus before you eat it? It's a habit for me, 'cause we were taught from young to do that. Supposedly the outer skin might not be clean as the pau-maker makes contact with it while kneading and molding. But it's kind of bollocks to think of it. What about roti canai? Other form of baked products? And even then, the high heat from steaming should kill any germs or bacteria right...Food for thought. No pun intended, hehe.

Skin-peeling contenders:

Jing's. Quite fail right! The entire pig face is torn, nyehehe.

Mine! Looks like Casper in pig form, haha.

Jing: "bla bla bla.."

We then found ourselves chilling out in oversized, plush armchairs!

My legs look really long here!

By the way, I found an interesting video today, "7 billion: Are you typical?", whereby National Geographic describes the most typical person in the world:

Watch it, it's interesting!

And if you link to the video, one of the comments go, 'Dad??', I laughed real hard at that, hahahaha.

Yeah, my parents told me to do that as a kid too, they always peel the skin off paus before eating it.

Myself, I never really bothered. I'm too lazy to do it and anyway, I like the taste of the skin. It has a slippery texture that's quite delicious. :)

huai bin: Haha, on the contrary, I don't like the slippery texture! Especially when it makes contact with condensation... T_T

mustardqueen: Hahahah that thing is a FOX! I think they just trail off, and you have to wait for the next instalment-- 'cause it's a year-long project!
