About “Health”

I remember a conversation with a friend of mine when he mentioned that a friend of his was very keen on using olive oil only. To his friend, this was a deal breaker and he insisted with his femme that everything consumed in the house shall only be eaten if it is prepared in olive … Continue reading About “Health”

The truth about Spinach

Spinach is something I eat daily. I add it in my smoothie (Oh, please don't be grossed out if you have never tried it) and it's a part of my salad. But is it okay to eat spinach every day?

I feel ya, my vegan brother

I made the huge mistake of ordering a veggie burrito from Mexican grill. OH MY GOD. It was like they didn't even bother with the recipe. It made me question why I didn't just order the chicken options instead. SO THIS IS WHAT THEY MEAN WHEN PEOPLE WHO ARE GOING VEGAN FRET ABOUT WHAT TO … Continue reading I feel ya, my vegan brother

Why QIFF wasn’t all that

Yeah, I Have No Class

It beats me how someone working in the hospitality industry for three years can be so awkward on one on one interactions. Really, I have disappointed myself. Besides emotionally blackmailing my boss to give me annual leaves, the other achievement of the week was that I went on a date.   (Source) We wanted to try … Continue reading Yeah, I Have No Class
