DIY - Kiwi Mocktail

Happened to learned this from a local Chinese newspaper yesterday. Since I have some kiwi fruits at home... it was a good time to try out some DIY fruity mocktail, type of non-alcoholic beverage. It was a quick try, with some preparations work in advance, it turned out to be a simple refreshing beverage on a hot and sunny afternoon.

Pictures below proofed it.... 3 kiwis for glasses of 4!

Here's what I got from ChinaPress newspaper Cuisine column. Believe they have yet upload the latest eNewspaper, if interested, you could check it out here in the next couple of days (provided you know Chinese).

The recipe (extracted from Chinapress)

How to:

Living Life to the Fullest

2 posts in a row... with the head full of philosophy night. Well, it was unknowingly in a day which I was searching for a quote, co-incidentally noticed this.... thinking it is worth sharing with others, remind us how to live our life to the fullest !

This wiki page, listed 28 items on how to live life to the fullest. In wish I do recognize and agree almost 90% of all listed down there.

Visit here - > http://www.wikihow.com/Live-Life-to-the-Fullest

A few steps which I agree most, are as below... wishing I can fully implement those in my life, making it a perfect one :)

I don't normally read books... but was somewhat inspirational lately with lots of reflections on own believe and life. Being the same time, I was introduced to this book. Rather simple to read (only to those whom knows Chinese). Further on, I am now able to type Traditional Chinese character... as I have been copying some eye-capturing words from the book.

Rather a good book to remind human being on the right path and track we should be heading towards, in a way meaningful life.

Here're some sayings, in Chinese....

不要想 '要怎麼滿足?', 而是想 '為甚麼我會有那麼多不滿?' -- Do not always think, how to get ourselves satisfied, but in a way should ask ourselves ' why is that we have so much unsatisfactory.

人常常期望別人按照我們的想法和標準來做事, 或是修正別人來符合自己的 '版本'。。。我們只要接受每個人本來的樣子, 那麼人與人之間就不會有相處的問題了! -- We always expect others to follow our expectations and our way to present, expect others be the same as us... as long as we respect the differences others have, aren't that human could get along better, respectful of others?

* hee... I may not be good in such translation, especially with a disoriented mind now:P
