Mom’s birthday was good, we just stayed home and hung around the house but it was fun. I baked two cakes that day, a vanilla chiffon cake and a banana cake. Actually had a bit of each, strange for me since I usually detest junk food but I just couldn’t resist home baking! The banana cake was the one we actually put candles on, since Mom and I had dug into the chiffon cake the moment it came out of the oven.
Went out with Willie earlier today. I just had to drop by my favourite reptile store for a little while and was pleasantly surprised by the fact that the shop workers now recognise me. Some random pics from the top of a double decker bus on the way home:
Willie was pretty tired and fell asleep so I had nothing else to do. He did wake up for a short while though just to disturb me.
I think I’ll start making better use of my PDA and use it to jot down any random or interesting thoughts I have throughout the day. I always think of issues or ideas that I want to write about here, but they slip away by the time I get to the comp.
I often wonder and discuss with close friends and family how many girls in Hong Kong suffer from eating disorders. I’m pretty convinced that there are plenty, people just don’t like to talk about it and as a result there’s a major lacking in awareness and support. Not long ago I noticed a girl walk into a public restroom, proceed to expel her dinner into a toilet bowl, give her face a wash (she had turned bright red) then walk out and wander off with her boyfriend. No one else seemed to care, and I guess it was none of my business, it was just hard not to notice when I was in the same room.
Beauty standards here piss me off. It’s ridiculous how far people take the whole “thin is in” concept. I’ve had my fair share of ladies approach me on the street to try and suck me into weight loss programs. Let’s of course remember that according to my BMI I’m all ready considered underweight. And products like these are just bollocks.
Moving on, what does everyone consider to be their biggest web design flaw(s)? I think mine are definitely unintelligent order of elements (in the source code my menu comes before my content) and lack of white space (10px of space around the main text is a bit sad). I guess both are easily correctable, I’m just too lazy to recode all the themes again. Perhaps in future themes I shall try and fix them.
