Topsy Turvy! (Charis updates)

It's always a treat to have breakfast during dinner. It ranks up there somewhere with ice-cream for dinner (which Sam said he has done before, like what?!) and juicy bacon for breakfast. Our delicious dinner tonight was just that, egg sandwiches with sausage and cheese. And the noble cause for this topsy turvy-ness was to simply finish all food in the fridge! We're busy packing up to move to a new place (yes! we found a place, more on that later) next week and you would think said persons would've remembered not to buy a new carton of eggs, right! But bought 'em I did and now we have to finish them all. 4 down - 6 more to go. 

Our dinner - egg and sausage sandwich 
That's what I've been doing these past few weeks. When my parents were here about 3 weeks back, we visited a seafood market down south of Bangkok (yep, another post!) and I stocked up on lots and lots of fishes. So I've cooked deep-fried fish, steamed fish, sweet and sour fish and really, I've ran out of other fishy ideas! It must be homesickness because suddenly I thought of "yue tao mai fan" - fish head meehoon, one of my favourite dishes to eat during rainy days. So, voila here it is! Not as hard as it looks really! Try it!

Fish head meehoon - the fish is totally wrong but it made a yummy dish anw!
Now is to figure out what am I going to do with the rest of the food in the fridge. What can I cook with 6 eggs, 4 sausages, Ramly burgers, frozen crisscut fries, 2 salted fishes, 2 fishes, pickled green mustard and lots of chicken breasts cuts? Kinda wished I didn't pay so much attention to Housekeeping 101 - Keep a Well-stocked Fridge.

Living the dream (Sam speaks)

I finally write after much persistence from the wife, the man gives in to write something. Not sure if it'll be something that she wants though so here goes :) 

At times like this, I wish I wasn't working at P&G. Why? Here's the background, we've been working on something super exciting for the past few months and we're bringing this to you. If I got an opportunity this like 10 years ago, I'll be go nuts by now and will be obsessed with it for awhile. It could lead to me playing in the big leagues, earning big bucks :)

I've always wanted to know what it feels like to be playing football professionally. It indeed was a super fun game, especially during the days when you weigh a lot less and had tons of energy to burn. 

Ok, so putting selfish ambition aside, we're bringing this dream now to the younger generations of today.

How does this sound: Get trained in a professional football academy in England where legends are made by a professional English Football coach, free tickets to watch one of the greatest games in England, all expenses paid worth RM193,600! Crazy right. 

Presenting: "Live your Football Dream" by Gillette and Head & Shoulders. 

And you know what's the best part? It's going to be super fun and easy to join. I remember we did this video for iBridge camp about 2 years ago and we took this shot in less than an hour (i think) - just the football scene.

Those were good times :)

Anyway, here's your turn. Have a go at it (since I can't due to legal implications hence the "how I wish I didn't work for P&G" part :))

Even if you don't win the Grand Prize, the 2nd and 3rd are pretty awesome as well. Go for it!

Help me spread the word to whoever would love this.

Joash, you should go for this!
