Studying Kills!

Times Read: 897



I applied for long leave from work just to study for my semester exams.

I am honestly not looking forward for this.




Paper : Economics - Prices & Markets
Date : Monday 25th April 2011
Time : 2:15 pm - 4:30 pm
Duration : 2 hrs
******
Paper : Organisation Theory
Date : Wednesday 4th May 2011
Time : 2:15 pm - 5:30 pm
Duration : 3 hrs
******
Paper : Human Resource Management - Staffing the Organisation
Date : Monday 9th May 2011
Time : 2:15 pm - 5:30 pm
Duration : 3 hrs

Juggling between work and school really tires me out.

Even though I have taken leave from work to prepare for my exam, I am not sure if I have the strength to sit through these papers.

I have been studying and I just can't seem to retain anything in my mind!

I think I need to go for a good session of yoga to calm my nerves.

Wish me luck guys!

I need help ... Pls comment with SIMPLE receipe instructions :D

Ok I need serious help here.

I don't know how to cook. Yup its true ... actually to be honest, I have been banned from the kitchen. The last time I was in there ... I kinda burnt the frying pan o.O. The only thing I can do is operate the kettle.


I am 28 years old and not knowing how to cook is a huge embarrassment. Having a domestic helper doesn't help me much cos I'm never forced to learn.


So this weekend I have the house all to myself and I have decided to cook myself a meal instead of going out to eat. I want to make myself a simple pasta dish.


I checked out my pantry and found this ...




and now all I need is someone to tell me ... what to do with it .... please!!!


Lemme know the ingredients and simple cooking instructions.


Ps. I am not planning to tell my mom about it cos she'll force me to have the fire department on speed dial :)

Well, hmmm



Find some spaghetti, elbow macaroni or egg noodles and you could be in business.



Find a pot that can hold more than 1 liter of water. Set the pot onto the burner and pour approximately 1 liter of water into the pot. Turn the heat setting for that burner to high. Please stay where you can see the pot, the water should heat fairly quickly.



Once the water is boiling turn the heat setting down to medium high(between medium and high), carefully add the pasta to the water, I don't want you to burn yourself. If you are using spaghetti you may need to break the noodles in half to fit them in the pot.

Stir the noodles so they do not stick together.



Let them cook 7 to 8 minutes and then drain the water and add the sauce to the pasta. You don't even need to heat it.

My English teacher once assigned us to write the instructions for making a peanut butter sandwich; explicit instructions as though they would be followed to the letter. That was a hard assignment.

o.O

okie ... wads this i hear about adding oil and salt to the water ... is that necessary? Or can i skip the part?

The salt is for flavor and completely unnecessary.

The oil will keep the pasta from sticking but if it splatters you are risking a fire. You can use it but you do not need it.

The pasta will be hot and will heat the sauce when you mix it in.

You did ask for easy, yes?

It's hard for me to be simple since I've cooked for years but here goes. Cook the pasta with the directions the others have given you (I use salt in the water).

Then using med/hi heat in a separate skillet cook 1 pound of ground beef or Italian sausage. Add salt and pepper and break it into small pieces and stir till it's browned (cooked through). Then slowly pour the jar of sauce over the cooked meat and stir till it's heated together.

Then serve it over the pasta. If you have grated parmesan cheese sprinkle some on top.

Cubby , be sure to stay with the preparation and don't walk away at any time. Wear an apron and use pot holders when needed to touch or hold the pots.

Since you are using minced chicken add some oil (I use olive oil) to the pan first and get it warm before you add the chicken. The chicken will be pink and you want it turn white and just a bit of light brown before you add the sauce.

Basically follow what they said and just make sure the Chicken is fully done as well.You don't want any raw chicken in your meal.



Trust me,I know how it is not to be able to cook,but I learned at a young age as well since I raised my younger sister from Infancy.

Chocolate cupcake with cream cheese frosting and sprinkled with fresh coconut shavings!




I am a huge cup cake person but why haven't I tried this yet?

Why don't they have this in Singapore?

I was watching Food Network Asia and they had a short clip on this famous cupcake ... and I have been thinking about this ever since!

Wondering if the combination of these 3 different flavours will actually work together ... hmm ...
*licks lips* one more reason for me to travel to the United States *grins*

Before working in a lingerie store I worked in a bakery, and I learned how to make all kinds of cup cakes. I even know how to decorate one to look like a lady bug.

There are no vampires in Hindu mythology!

There are no vampires in Hindu mythology.

I was rating the database when I came across a few entries about Hindu mythological characters that were referred to as vampires.


All these database submission are based on information gathered from websites, but one must understand that most Asian cultures lose their original meanings when they are interpreted in western terms. The essence is often lost in translation.


A Rakshasa is not a vampire. It's a demon. Yes it has fangs and often depicted as a ferocious being that eats flesh and drinks blood. But that's not its sole principle of existence. Rakshasa are demons who inconvenience the good. For example they are said to hinder sages from performing their holy rituals. Again the true importance of evil obstructing the good is not taken into interpretation.


Most 'dark' Hindu deities have fangs and drink blood ... but they are most definitely not vampires. The presence of fangs and blood are to emphasize the ferocious nature of the deity. Most dark characters in Asian mythology drink blood but please note that that doesn't make them vampires.


How do I know? Because I am Hindu ...


Thank you for your kind understanding.

I have the same argument for people who say they are vampires in the Bible. People will always color things the way they want to see them. There is no one in the Bible who lives by drinking blood (even in The Book Of Enoch)- and as for Holy Communion, it's not about vampirism at all.



A 'monster' eating flesh or even drinking blood at times is quite different from a being that lives on blood as their livelihood.

You should definitely write more about Hindu mythology. It's interesting.

I used to be obsessed with the culture of ancient Greece, then it was Egypt, but now Hinduism is my obsession. haha.
