Whispering "Guides to Writing"

While on the train I was reading a career guide tabloid and let me share with you some tips in composing letters. According to the writer, most common flaw is verbosity(verbose), kilo metric sentences and high-falutin words. And the writer suggested to follow these simple tips to spare our readers from eyestrain.

1. Write shorter sentences.

2. Think "irreducible minimum" meaning don't overdo with your details. Drop less important details.

3. Use shorter words such as use for utilize, try for attempt, end for terminate and so on.

4. Write with your audience in mind.
You know what you wrote but never assume so will your readers. Assume ignorance on the reader. Hence:
Be aware you may be jumping into a conclusion without giving the logic.
Consider adding a brief background to shed more light on your main subject.

Dried Seaweed and Electrical Tape

rice roll shaped in triangles or nigiri

dried seaweed
My daughter and her two male friends were having a discussion about food this weekend over our dinner table. My daughter serve them wafer rolls, cheese biscuits and chocolate. One guy was lactose intolerant so he had to read the ingredients really hard at the packets. He can't have any of those food, but he can't help it and still ate a minimal portion and He said that it was so good. Food discussions led to a Japanese cooking show that my daughter's boyfriends saw on tv. My daughter is familiar with Japanese food. I serve some at home and they like it But her friends are not so particular about Japanese food stuff and I heard one guy said something like, he likes a rice shaped into triangle with some fish filling inside and then wrap with a thing which looked like an electrical tape. Heard my daughter say, "Hahahaha you call it nori or Japanese dried seaweed!"

Funny how he compared nori to an electrical tape. I wonder how he would compare Japanese curry rice topping with?

Oh my! Many people could be panicking now on what gifts to buy for Christmas, for their families, friends, co workers and maybe a handful of Godchildren.

Costs of living is really bad now a days and buying gifts could be stressing. It can even be hard to squeeze your budget.

But should gifts be expensive? In this trying times, we should learn how to be creative and not burden ourselves with too expensive gifts.

Kids will probably opt to get toys for Christmas or we can bake them their favorite cookies.

But to the older group why not give them something that they can read every now and then. Like a letter telling them how you appreciate them and how they inspire you could mean the most to them. Most of the time we miss to tell people how good they are to us and this is the time to express our thoughts through personalized letter. This is something that they can keep in their drawers and in their hearts for a long time.

I do keep cards and even up to now I do go over them and read them no matter how old the cards/letters are. And it makes me smile, something that I truly love and will keep till I am old and gray. Definitely priceless gifts I have.

And so I whisper to you, go start writing your thoughts about your love ones, because gifts need not be expensive to be priceless.

One funny Chinese movie

Poor me, internet connection was really bad, I was not online for quite a while, I was home one day and I watched a funny Chinese movie. I never laughed out so loud for some time now, but feels great to burst out laughing, it relieves tensions.

I don't know how old the movie is but it was funny. I don't really like martial arts movies, but this one got me so excited. Martial arts plus comedy kept me entertained. I would not mind picking another movie like it just for laughs. Really funny!
