    For once, I cannot remember this website's url. I typed "spcent.com", "spcent.org", "spcnet.com", "spcnet.org". Thanks goodness there is google. A sign of getting old = forgetfulness.

    Is this also true with people? Once you become comfortable with someone, you will get bored and stuck.

    Watched King's Speech and I was wondering what they meant by "He's afraid of his own shadow" What does it mean to be afraid of one's shadow?

    Describes someone scared of even harmless things. Someone timid and shy.

    I also forgot my twitter account. Is FB conversation getting more popular than twitter? Are the two functions basically the same?

    I always wonder if the ones who bash others online for getting plastic surgery [alleged, anyway] are ugly in real life. I am inclined to believe so.

    I do not recall ever encountering any stinky tofu in SEA.

    I did not have a good impression of poutine when I tried it.

    Thailand is on the list 4 times.

    The list is very pedestrian.
    I like me.

    The food still look delicious. That's the important thing.

    Food should *taste* delicious. Who the hell cares what it *looks* like?

    Certain things, blind people can't enjoy, but food isn't one of them.

    Stinky tofu was sold in our night market. Yes, I stay in SEA.

    Very stinky. You thought there's a rubbish bin nearby. But, taste not bad. If you can get past the smell, it should taste good. I couldn't though.

    I've actually taken a bite (or 2), so, I know how it taste. But, I couldn't take further because I could not stand the smell. Putting it inside my mouth was great task.

    I remember during uni time, my housemate bought the stinky tofu to try. So, we all tried it, but, we could not finish it. My housemate took it to her friend who stayed nearby and she loved it. She said it taste very good.

    TVB always has the actor/actress take the stinky tofu and stuff it in their mouth and they seem to enjoy it so much, but thats part of the story.

    More wuxia/commoner style, I think. The palace gowns are way too elaborate. I want something I can walk around in for a whole day at a convention, or wear to the local Chinese garden during a festival event.

    My teacher says that I must have been Chinese in a past life, since I like everything Chinese so much.
