Food for thoughts

I always loved mangosteen, though it's a local fruit, but it's not really cheap.. Mum normally buys it only when we are buying durians. Why? Because it counteracts for the heaty durian, as it is of a cooling nature.. So if we eat loads of durians (love it very much too), we can eat loads of mangosteen.. Yin and yang..

On normal days, rarely get to eat it..

What I like about it is the outlook, it's a dark purple fruit with a cute cheeky collar at the stem, a round body and a reddish, bit yellowish small butt.. Isn't it elegant? Of course the taste is superb too.. Very juicy, sweet and refreshing..

Its hard on the outer, very hard, but we don't need a knife.. Just put it between your 2 palms and squeeze it.. But be careful when you are opening it, as the purplish rind from these mangosteens are bit hard to wash off if it sticks to your clothes..

Then reveals the bouncy and juicy white flesh.. (Well sometimes it's yellowish caused it's spoilt)
It's quite a contrast, hard and dark on the outside, soft and white on the inside.. I'm soo craving for the fruit now...

It's amazing what mangosteen gotta offer.. Anti-oxidant, anti-inflammatory, anti-tumour agent, so yes, it can possibly preventing cancer.. Of course it's loaded with heaps of vitamins..

Life's like a mangosteen..
Some people looks tough on the outside, but they may need some TLC in the inner self..
Some days we see darkness but once we go through it, there's another bright day ahead..

Hope it's a bright and happy day ahead for u...

A click a day

When I get the time to hook on Internet, there's 1 website that I'll first open up. Whether I connect from laptop or mobile. This one website is

It's been a norm for me to click on the "Click Here to Give - it's FREE" button.
Apparently after clicking, sponsors will pay for mammograms for women in need. I believed in that, just like how I believed the importance of mammograms. Mammography is a low-dose X-ray examination that can detect breast cancer and the earlier it is detected, the higher survival rate it is. It is advisable that women age 40 onwards start going for mammogram test. We may be fortunate, that we can afford to pay for the fees, but not all women are blessed with this privilege.

I hope this click can help them, wherever they are.

Smart Casual

Just as I reached office today, I saw an email that made me jumping with joy! 
After more than 1.5 years in this company, my wish came true!

Yes! I wished that I can wear jeans to work one day, just how I used to in previous employments.
With immediate effect, ye! Smart casual is the way to go! 

I can forget about the formal attire (not that I adhere to it strictly before this but I did tried).

Na na na, I smiled on and off and when no one's looking. I was already thinking what to wear and feels excited about starting work again on Monday! Time to dig out my jeans! 

I feel so motivated to start work again next week! 

Thanks company, that's +1 point to you!
