Beauty Queen Apple can be eaten plain, made into sauce or jelly, or it can be included in a variety of salads, meat dishes, pies, and other desserts. As a dried fruit, it can be added to a variety of baked goods or in a fresh form, it can be used to produce juice, vinegar, cider, and alcoholic beverages, such as hard cider and apple brandy
Medium to large sized round, Beauty Queen Apple has excellent storage ability. To store, keep the Beauty Queen Apple as cold as possible in the refrigerator.
· Brush the surface of the apple with lemon juice.
· Place the apple in water that has had lemon juice, cider vinegar or ascorbic acid. (Do not over-soak the apple. Drain and pat dry before eating).
· Dip the apple slices in lemon-lime soda.Soak apple slices in apple juice until ready to use. The acidity in the apple juice prevents the apple slices from browning and doesn't change the flavor of the apple.

The street or I should say the car park that I pass by every morning was so quiet that I can hear the ringing of the alarm from one of the windows. Ring….ring….ring…ring… but no one seems to be wakening up in that room. Hearing the ringing continue, I began to wonder did this wake the neighbours instead. Ha ha ha.
So coincidently, I was talking about waking up in the morning as special friend has been sleeping late recently.
SF: “I guess my alarm clock is not working.”
Me: “Alarm clock? I set my HP alarm to wake me up since they have this feature on the hp.”
SF: “Using HP? I don’t think this can wake me up.”
Me: “Well, then set to the loudest voice lor. Can always give it a try”
SF: “……..” (No reply)
Now I know why some people prefers alarm clock, you might need one that is loud enough to wake your neighbour before waking yourself.
Check out for the top ten most annoying alarm clocks.

No, I am yet to get my own HDB flat, still a couple of years to go before I reach the eligible age to buy own flat. But it is good to know the market price for the flat and the renovation charges; after all I still need to have enough saving before moving on to the next step.
To start from zero, I will have to get a HDB flat, guess might be a 4-room flat which might costs around 250k in few years time. (I can’t believe a 5-rooms HDB flat can cost more than 700K today). Then at least a 40k is needed to have fully furnished house, not much of luxury lifestyle at this cost. So a total estimating of 300K will be spend to get a roof, which hopefully can turn up a home for myself. Not a small amount, I mean how many people up there can really save so much in order to have comfortable shelter.
Of course, all of these can be pay by installment. Even paying the deposit itself can be tough for a single. Hmmm, I guess more than half of my earning will be gone by paying off all these debts. To those experienced guys up there, am I right?
Some of my friends teased me that I should get one man; at least I have someone to split all these costs. Ha ha ha, what an idea!
So at the end, to achieve for a home sweet home, I have to work harder than ever. Hope my goal in life does not stop for this house only.

I bought a new super single size King Koil bed and cabinet for my room on last Sun and was expecting their delivery on sat late afternoon(3 to 6pm). Asked my family to stay home and wait for them, but ended up they only arrived around 6 to 8pm. Thanks to the new bed, I managed to sleep quite well for the past two nights and hope this will lasts, hee hee.
Hmmm I still managed to watch two movies, one of them is FOC.
When Shrek married Fiona, the last thing he had in mind was becoming the next King. But when Shrek's father-in-law, King Harold, suddenly croaks, that is exactly what he faces. Unless Shrek (with the help of his trusted companions Donkey and Puss In Boots) can find a suitable King for Far Far Away, the ogre could be stuck with the job. The most promising candidate, Fiona's cousin Artie, an underachieving Medieval high school slacker, proves to be more of a challenge than they bargained for.
Director: Raman Hui, Chris Miller
Main Cast: Mike Myers, Cameron Diaz, Eddie Murphy
Genre: Animated / Comedy
Running Time: 93 minutes
My rate: **1/2
I feel ……. I didn’t watch the first two so have no idea on the storyline. Quite funny and entertaining one but frankly speaking, I will not watch it if this is not FOC.
On SundayDanny Ocean (George Clooney) and the gang would have only one reason to pull off their most ambitious and riskiest casino heist—to defend one of their own. When ruthless casino owner Willy Bank (Al Pacino) double-crosses one of the original Ocean’s eleven - Reuben Tishkoff (Elliott Gould) - Danny and the gang team up one more time to see if they can break “the Bank.” Director: Gore Verbinski
Main Cast: George Clooney, Brad Pitt, Matt Damon
Running Time: 122 minutes
My rate: ****
I feel….. I always love to watch this kind of movie. How the evil beaten by the good using their intelligent, the high and latest technology and most of it, the handsome and beauties on the screen. And in this movie, how the Casino 'win' the gamblers' money, so better watch out when you visit Casino next time.

Communication (of cos not in harsh way)
Little tolerance, I guess.
(What’s more to learn in this learning curve?)
If one of the above is losing, can this relationship lasts?
One more to add for the above, that is Understanding.

Today, when I went to the venting drinking machine during break time of my class, surprisingly I realized there are increases of price for all can drinks too. From $0.90 to $1.20, from $1.20 to $1.50, almost 30% increased. My goodness, why they always like to in-line with our salary increment period? No wonder I never realize the good feel of my increment salary, cos it was always ‘eaten up’ by all increases of our living costs.
Now I begin to worry, what’s next for the increase? Maybe coffee and tea with milk?
