Hangover Cures

Thanks to Xiaxue you will never have to struggle with a bad hangover again!

BUT WAIT......

Do these methods really work?

I doubt so.........



I know of a few other hangover cures though
1) Take Paracetamol
2) Gulp down a can of Cola
3) Drink lots and lots of coffee or tea (preferable without sugar and milk)

Zodiac 2009 (Part 9 of 12 - Monkey)

猴Monkey Born in: 1932 1944 1956 1968 1980 1992 2004

Personality
Lively, witty, inventive and intelligent, a fast learner with good memory. Good at problem solving but can be too clever and become lazy, opportunistic and manipulative. They also know social skills well but can be selfish and egoistic. Also unbeatable in terms of talent and wealth.

Of all the animals in the lunar cycle, the Monkey bears the closest resemblance to the Naked Ape himself, Man. It is therefore no wonder that it should be he who will inherit most of man's intelligence as well as his capacity for deceit. The Monkey is the sign of the inventor, the improvisor, and the motivator in the Chinese zodiac; a charlatan capable of drawing everyone to him with his intimate guile and charm.
Being the quick-witted genius of the cycle, he is clever, flexible and innovative.

The monkey can solve intricate problems with ease and will be a very fast learner. He can master anything under the sign and usually has the aptitude for being a good linguist. A person born in this year will be successful at whatever he chooses to do. No challenge will be too great for him.

The Monkey likes: Risks, Cooking, Travel, Jokes, Intrigue, Flamboyance and Sunshine. The Monkey dislikes: Organisating, Illness, Convention, quietness, Responsibility and Failure.

Compatible Animals: Snake, Rat, Dragon

Your Luck In Year 2009
Overall Forecast

Lucky stars gather and shine collectively to lit the sky brightly. Be mindful that you face impediment amid the good days, so be careful and never negligent in any aspects. There is hope for fruitful results in your endeavours. Working persons will enjoy good news at the second half of the year. Students are able to perform well academically. There are offspring luck this year. Good wealth luck brings in extra money.

A year to aggressively charge and push forward. Do more good deeds and improve personal relations, which will be of great aid to your career and business. Take adequate rest and caution against minor illnesses.

Career
A fresh new start with lucky stars shinning as bright as the morning sun. A sad note is that danger stars lurk in the dark. Think thrice before acting. Do not act smart; do not be too trusty. Always be cautious against business traps and avoid being blinded by greed. Shun speculative activities. Make prayers and do more good deeds and accumulate more merits. And then all should be well.

Love
You feel exhilarated because of the many joyous news. Because most things are proceeding as planned, you feel happy and so romance luck flows smoothly as well. A good time to discuss marriage or start a blossoming romance. Couples are blissful and affectionate.

Wealth
Wealth star shines high. Proper income and windfall lucks flow in from good sources. There is investment and property gains too. Vile persons are lurking by. Have a discerning eye when interacting with others. Handle deceitful words with discretion. All finance matters should be managed personally. Reap lottery winnings early rather than greeding for more.

Health
There is a lot of minor illness sprouting out here and then. Have a proper diet and take preventive measures against intestinal, digestive and head related problems. The young and the elderly are susceptible to flu and falls respectively. Avoid attending wakes.

新海山海鲜 Sin Hoi San Seafood Restaurant

This is a long overdue post.

My sister and I brought our dad to 新海山海鲜 last month to celebrate his birthday. It was my first time there, and since it was highly recommended, we decided on the place weeks before the actual day.

Apparently this "restaurant" is recommended by quite a number of food critics, so it must be good right?

When I got there, I realise its not exactly a restaurant, its a coffeeshop.

Simply: Coffeeshop with restaurant prices AND coffeeshop SERVICE.

Now let me begin.

Its located at Blk 55 Tiong Bahru Road.

Sorry for the lousy pics because that was the day my camera was SPOILT!



Sweet and sour pork / fish, I cannot remember, means its forgetable.


This fried "Dang Hoon" is pretty good.


Fried Kang Kong was ok, but of course not the best I have eaten.



Steamed fish - This one is good. The sauce is delicious.I don't usually like to eat steamed fish, but because this one was so delicious, I attacked it all night.



Chilli - One word: LOUSY. So spicy, no other taste. A good belachan should be spicy, tangy and fragrant. Hard to describe, basically the ones you get in Cantonese Restaurants.



Chilli Crab. So so. Not in the top 5 crabs I have eaten. I asked for more sauce, and guess what the "captain / lady boss" said? "Already a lot of sauce, too much is not nice to eat." (Pls cut me the preaching, just tell me you are too stingy to give!)

I was so pissed, I felt like telling her, "Don't teach me how to eat crab, especially Chilli Crab because I have eaten almost every single good Chilli Crab stalls in Singapore!!"
What is chilli crab without a lot of sauce?

Can't give more? Then maybe you should lower your price to low end coffeeshop price, I won't even bother asking for more sauce, but since I was paying restaurant price (in a hot stuffy place with no air-con), yes, I expect the food to be TIP TOP!

(NO, SHE DID NOT GIVE ME THE SAUCE NONETHELESS)





Gong Bao Live Frog. Forgetable again. Still prefer Geylang la.


CONCLUSON

Presentation: Average, like any "Tze Char" stall

Taste: Not something I would rave about

Quality: Fish was fresh.

Ambience: What ambience?

Crowd: Families, and apparently Hong Kong stars??? Someone pls bring these stars to Roland or Jumbo!!!

Service: Does this word exist in their dictionary? They are even slow in billing!

Value for Money: No, we spent about $200? I cannot remember.

Overall: Slightly below average.

Best 50 Reviews on OSIM and a FREE Massage Pen!

The other day, I received a pleasant surprise when I checked my Yahoo mail. I received an email from OSIM. Apparently my post on the OSIM iLife (posted in August) has gotten the attention from the marketing people at OSIM, and they have selected my review as "one of the best 50 reviews on OSIM.com".



This took me by surprise because I really didn't expect that.

The kind people at OSIM are now rewarding me with the OSIM Massage Pen.


Well, I really don't know how the massage pen works, but I will definitely write about it after I claim my prize.

Intelligent with a mind for business. She has artistic inclination who tend to be pessimistic. Good natured and generous but can be undisciplined and irresponsible. May have somewhat antisocial tendencies. The Sheep is also indecisive and too passive. Yet she has fantastic luck in her life.

This is the most feminine sign of the zodiac. A person of the Goat year is called the Good Samaritan of the cycle. He is righteous, sincere and easily taken in by sob stories.

The Goat dislikes: Noise, War, Paperwork, Beggar, Politics, Bills and Inelegance.

Compatible Animals: Rabbit, Horse, Pig

Your Luck In Year 2009
Overall Forecast

A year where the Goat zodiac clashes with Tai Sui. A not so favorable luck for the year. Evil stars also appear to add pressure. A resolving star that is present is not a match for all these evil stars. You have to be on constant alert, and mull over issues thrice before coming to a decision. And caution against vile person plots and gossips. Take good care of your health and well being. DO not take loans or be guarantors for others.You have to be prepared for any sudden events this year. Handle all caution against accidents. Show care and concern to your lover.

Career
Every undertaking is against your wishes. A time to be on the defensive position. Make prudent decisions when on business or investment grounds. You are advised to treat your colleague, staff and clients with friendliness and kindness to go through this tough period. Never attempt any speculative and quick buck schemes this year. It is also not a good time to partner with others for business opportunities. Scrutinize your contracts well before signing. Handle documents with care.

Love
Love luck is full of untamed waves of fluctuations. Mood swings and emotional changes are too great. Coupled with vile persons causing sabotage, conflicts with your love ones are bound to occur. But you can resolve it by being more tolerant. Show respect and more affection to your dearest.

Wealth
Your wealth luck hits the pit this year. Be prudent with regard to managing your wealth. You cannot afford to be negligent with clients. You may face possible loss of wealth to save your day or in the extreme case, gain extremely large amount of wealth. But you have to curb your gambling activities and do not act as guarantors for others.

Health
Because of the immense level of stress hovering over your shoulder, it is taking a toll on your health. Be cautions against cuts and injuries. Seek treatment immediately if ill. Have preventive measure with regards to your flu, eye or mind health. Avoid water activities when outdoors.
