#163- EAT EAT EAT

“You are a fun-loving person and you will find much happiness”…this is a today’s my Chinese fortune cookie’s message.

Yes, I enjoy every fun moment…

At the Chinese restaurant near by the Gelson’s in Silver Lake/Los Feliz.

Me: I am going to shop at the Gelson’s, so I will be back 40 minutes later.

The cashier: What else?

Me: What else…? Oh…I would like to have a sweet and sour pork combination.

The cashier: All right. See you later!

One hour later, I realized that I ordered two people’s dinner (I have ordered a beef chow mein combination and a sweet and sour pork combination)…!

Yes, EAT. EAT.EAT…! I ate one and a half people’s dinner.

I hope, I am going to get more luck from this funny moment. I can't wait to open the other fortune cookie tomorrow.

EAT.

I will go to Galia (my friend, Keasha’s mom)’s Thanksgiving dinner party.

Last Thanksgiving dinner…I ate a lot…

First round: Turkey (white & dark meat both) with cranberry sauce and gravy, Turkey Breast Roulade with Apple …

#162- Time is money

Time is money…Yes, I think so.

"Daylight saving time" system is a very smart idea.

One of my favorite activities in winter is, "Roll back my clocks & watches an hour to Standard Time."

Happy moment...I got one hour extra sleep in the morning, I gained one hour, and I saved one hour…!

Lucky us!


By the way, I would like to share the lucky scoop with you.

2012 Feng Shui Lucky Colors (this info is from Feng Shui master, Mr. Sachiaki Kobayashi in Japan) are red, yellow, white, and gold.

Have some lucky colors for your home and fashion, and gain more luck.

Have a wonderful winter time!


P.S. Japanese people don’t have "Daylight saving time" system in Japan, but most of them have enough saving money in the bank (yes, Japanese people are good at savings and they work overtime, so they don’t need to save their time).
