If anyone tries this let me know how they turn out!!  Once you get the hang of it it's pretty easy, and you can try other stuff too.  My roommate likes putting some sesame seeds along with the green onions on top of the eggs.  I've tried putting chicken meet instead of the YouTiao/ Crullers inside and it tasted pretty good (you know those BBQ chicken you can get already cooked at the grocery stores?  And by the end there's just a bit of meat left on the bones?  Yeah that's the stuff I used).  Have fun!!

The cosmetics dilemma

So, on Wednesday I indulged once again in the luxury of shopping for summer sandals, and while in the mall I grabbed myself a manicure set.  Of all the shallow, commercially-driven, media induced practices...but my nails look nice now <____<

The other day, when my roommate had some friends over, they started talking about skin-care products and make-up.  Being so unknowledgeable in the field, I sat to one side and just listened, the entire time wanting to rant that there's a few thousand people dying everyday due to a lack of funds to access food, and here they were discussing cosmetic products that costed anywhere from thirty to a hundred dollars for a tiny bottle.  One of the girls in the discussions was also someone in my field, and sweet a girl as she was, she definitely seemed more knowledgeable about which lotions to use to reduce the size of pores than international development issues.

I guess, at the end of the day, it's between this post - save money, help the environment, save time and save space - and the manicured and decorated nails which typed out this post, I guess that's the dilemma that faces all of us.
