It's not always that I buy shrimps. They can be expensive during certain times of the year. Shrimps are high in cholesterol, although they are low in fat. However the latest studies is quite a consolation; that if you are on a heart friendly healthy diet, its okay for you to have shrimps, especially if its grilled or baked or in a curry. When shrimps are large, fresh, and moderately priced, thats when my desire to eat shrimps becomes strong. When I visited Geant Hypermarket at 360 Mall, they had these wonderful fresh shrimps and I knew I had to buy some. I couldn't wait to prepare shrimps and they tasted just great.
Yesterday, I visited the 'Sukar Ramadan' sweets and dessert festival at 360 Mall. The exhibition started at 1pm, and the stalls were in process of opening to the public. Most stalls were open, but some were yet to open. It's better to visit the exhibition somewhere late afternoon or close towards evening time, as you will be able to see live preparations by chefs and all the sweet stalls would be open by then. Saturday July 14 is the last day of the exhibition. You will certainly enjoy the visit. I liked the stalls and displays by 'Baking Tray' and 'Rifai'. Baking Tray had put up lots of interesting items. Rifai has a variety of hampers and gift sets with sweets, nuts and goodies for Ramadan. There many other nice stalls as well. 'Diet Care' has a stall as well with low calorie sweets and besides they also promoting their healthy weight loss plans and low calorie tasty meals.

Be authentic and true to your emotions. Examine your core values and live life based on those values that define who you truly are and what you stand for. Admit your mistakes and make amends. Don't let your ego cloud your choices and decision. Be true in your dealings with others. Don't pretend to be something you are not or force yourself into doing something that are against your values. Avoid falling into the trap of hypocrisy, lies and deception. It's okay to say 'No', if you really don't want to do something. Can you smell when a person is being a fake? Then so can others if you are not being true. Enjoy the simplicity of being yourself.
