He would buy veggies and fruits just…

I got introduced to the global overdog BTS last night at a slumber party at my best friend’s house. Apparently, all 4 attendees were part of the ARMY. The girls were in the mood for all things BTS and I was happy to bite.

Our team went to meet 3 pairs of sisters last Saturday and collected…

I’m never afraid of a bad food order.
I look at the menu, choose the meat I like and just order any version of it. I don’t Google to check what a Chung Fung is or reject the Soba noodles. I just go for it.
Actually, I’ve never had a…

L for Lazy

Have you ever tried deleting your Amazon account? You can’t, or rather, since you’re lazy, you’ll give up. Amazon knows that and leverages the brain’s laziness to not let you delete your account. Instead, it sets you on a long journey, fully knowing you’ll eventually give up.
