Growing Sideways At Crystal Jade Restaurant, Singapore

A WELL FED LUNCH...

They took me to Crystal Jade in one of the malls here at Orchard Road, Singapore.  I could not remember which branch.  All I know is that we ordered a "feast" for ourselves, after hungering ourselves without breakfast and straight for lunch from the hotel.  I thought my kids have stopped growing, seems I am wrong, they are still in the "growing up" stage, perhaps sideways like yours truly here.  Someone said I look "thick" now.... what a nice word to replace "chubby" instead... LOL...

Here's what we ordered....
Beef noodles...
Shrimp Fried Rice...
Duck wanton noodles...
Porridge for me... 
Actually we shared our main meals... 
And then followed by these side orders...
Siew Loong Pau...
Lau Sar Pau...
Char Siew Pau...
Chee Cheong Fun...
And these two trays!
Are we really such Big Eaters??
I guess we are.... we did not leave edible behind.... 
We are still in the Growing UP stage... LOL...

Struggling To Find Career Direction?



There are a lot of skills that we learn throughout our lives. However, there's one incredibly important skill that we all seem to be left to figure out on our own a lot of the time. That is the skill of being able to figure out which direction to take our lives in. We're all asked what we want to be when we grow up when we're kids, but the truth is that figuring out the answer to that question is incredibly difficult, even if you actually are a grown up! Because of that, many people struggle to find the right direction for their careers. However, that doesn't mean that finding the right direction is impossible, it's just something that you have to think carefully about. With that in mind, here are some ways to deal with a lack of direction in your career.

Give yourself goals

One of the most important things that you can do is to set yourself decent and solid goals no matter what you're doing. It's important to think clearly about what it is that you want to achieve. Even if you don't know what career you want, think about what kinds of things you might want out of a potential career. Is it flexibility? Is it money? Is it creative fulfilment? All of these things are totally valid but you need to be the one to figure out what you want out of a career. That way you have something to strive for when you're looking for the right job.

Figure out what you need

Of course, even if you do figure out what kind of career you want, it can often feel difficult to achieve your goals if you're not yet qualified for the kind of work that you're interested in. Luckily, it's entirely possible to get out there and find the qualifications that you need. From online MBA programs to night classes to free online lessons, there are plenty of ways that you can get qualified for the kind of job you really want. Of course, make sure that you're sure that a set of qualifications is going to be useful to you before diving in head first.

Be realistic

We all have goals and we all have dreams, but the truth is that it's not always going to be possible for you to reach your goals all at once. Make sure that you think carefully about each step along the way. Otherwise, you're just going to end up biting off more than you can chew. Having a long-term goal is great but it's incredibly useful to break that up into smaller, short term goals as well.

The truth is that there is no reason for you to settle into doing one specific thing all of the time. Plenty of people go through multiple career changes throughout their lives and there's nothing wrong with that. At different times in your life, you might feel the need to change things up and that's great. Just try to keep an eye on where you're going, no matter what direction that ends up taking you in.

A Very Satisfactory Meal At Meng Meng Roasted Duck Restaurant, Sutera

JUST ME AND ANDY FOR DINNER...

Back in Johor, we had a simple dinner at Meng Meng Roasted Duck Restaurant, Sutera Mall area.  Though the place is famous for their roasted duck, I did not order that this time.  I prefer their BBQ pork aka Char Siew amidst other dishes.  I like their homecooked style, such as the steamed minced pork and double boiled soups.  For a nice complete and satisfaction meal, we ordered these dishes below for just the two of us...
Their famous BBQ Pork... Char Siew is a Must Order... 
And this too.. the sourish mustard leaves or "Chap Choy" is very appetizing...
Served on a candle lit mini size stove to keep it hot and spicy... 
The fish is freshly fried... crispy, even some parts of the bones can be eaten... 
Andy opted for their dried noodles instead of rice...  
And these dishes were for our dinner.... 
Yes, both of us could finish all these... nothing was left behind except the sauce... 
Total cost below RM50...
