Sooo, what does it taste like? As good as the fresh durians back home in Malaysia? Kevin, our professional durian taster took the first bite. Please excuse the way he eats the durian (with a spoon :P). That's how we eat durians in my family, so he is just following our lead. Hey, eating durians with a spoon is a great idea, you don't have to put up with stinky fingers later on! The first thing we noticed about the durian is that it doesn't smell. It does give out a little bit of smell but it wasn't overpowering, like how fresh Malaysian durians are. That kinda sucks a little, but I guess that's what you can expect from frozen Thai durians. Even though the flesh was quite firm and sweet, it was a bit watery. I am guessing it's also because the durian was frozen during shipping. Overall, I would say that it wasn't really half as bad as I expected it to be. Nothing close to the fresh durians that you can get back home in Malaysia though. However, if you are miles away from home and miss this yummy 'king of fruits', trust me, this is as good as it gets!

There is nothing that I enjoy more than taking a bite off a rich and creamy chocolate bar. One bite and it instantly send me to heaven. After that first bite, I would want another and another and another. That's how much I love chocolates. Many people say that girls love chocolates more than guys, but I beg to differ. I know that Kevin loves chocolates as much as I do. In fact, I sometimes think that he loves chocolates even more than me! As much as we love all kinds of chocolates, I would have to say that Cadbury will always remain as my favorite chocolate.
I have been eating Cadbury chocolates for as long as I can remember. It's rich, bubbly and creamy flavors makes it stand out from the rest. Recently, Cadbury launched a new product that is quite ingenious. It's called the Wispa Duo. Well, I wouldn't really call it a new product, because the Wispa has been around for a while. However, the Wispa Duo is a new twist to an old treat. The Wispa Duo is the perfect combination of a right and left bar, in one pack. That's right, you get a twin treat, both left and right, in one pack! Now, the big question remains? Which is left and which is right? Watch the new Wispa Duo advert from Cadbury and solve the problem of having a left bar, where you should have a right one. So, which bar do you prefer? The left or right bar? As for me, I prefer the right bar...because we all know that I am always right ;P

I was a little bit excited to try Bret's Trop A Rocka because he is the Celebrity Apprentice winner and this is the winning Snapple flavor. I also kept in mind that this is diet Snapple, so it is going to be a little bit more diluted tasting and not as sweet. When I first opened the bottle, there was this really weird smell that I couldn't really place. I was thinking to myself, coconut? It was really weird. I then drank a big mouthful and all I could say was "OMG! This won???" Let me just say it straight up. It's horrible! When it first hits your mouth, you do get a little taste of the mango and pear blend (which I feel isn't really that great of a combination). However, that taste doesn't last long at all. The tropical fruit blend fades away and this horrible tasting, somewhat spicy tasting thing take over. It just hits you hard. That's the same horrible smell that hit me when I opened the bottle. I really couldn't place that taste but once Kevin tried it, he told me it was cinnamon! Yes! That's it! Cinnamon! Wayyy wayyy wayyyy too much cinnamon. It just made the whole drink taste awful! I thought that Curtis and Maria was just faking it when they said that it tasted horrible but I guess they were not. It is bad! Very bad. Now I understand why we couldn't find many of Bret's Snapple on sale. I guess Snapple also knew that it wouldn't sell well and only made limited amounts.

Flowers. Who doesn't like flowers? There is just something about flowers that just brightens up your day. It might be the beautiful bright colors, the wonderful smell or maybe a mixture of both, but either ways, receiving flowers from someone that cares never fails to put a big smile on your face. Flowers really makes good gifts. You can send flowers to someone to celebrate their birthday, to your significant other on your anniversary, to cheer friends up when they are down, to show mom that you care on Mother's Day, to friends and relatives who are not feeling well and maybe even to that secret crush of yours, just to tell her that you are thinking about her. It's always easier to show someone that you care when you let the flowers do the talking. You know, sometimes you don't even need a reason to send flowers. Trust me, everybody loves it when they have that flower delivery, waiting for them at their door.The one person that we always love sending flowers to is my mother in law. She lives in Pittsburgh, so we do not get to see her often. Therefore, we always make it a point to send her flowers on her birthday, Mother's Day, Valentines Day and sometimes, even for no particular reason at all. We know that receiving flowers never fails to brighten her day and it also helps reminds her that even though we are miles away, we are still always thinking of her.
So, the next time you are thinking of someone or when a special occasion is coming up and you would like to show that special someone that you care, buy them flowers. That's right. A bouquet from 1-800-Flowers is just the thing to do the trick! Just visit http://www.1800flowers.com/ and order flowers for that special someone today. You know you can never go wrong with flowers.

For those of you who don't know, I am a huge sweepstakes fan. Whenever I hear of a good sweepstakes promotion online, I would always go check it out. However, there are so many so called 'sweepstakes' going on everyday online, it's hard to know which are the real ones and which are the fakes. Many of this 'sweepstakes' are actually scams, where you have to provide them with your credit card details, cell phone numbers (so that they can bill you) or some even go as far as trying to get your social security number! Therefore, I have always been very cautious when it comes to entering sweepstakes online.
I came across a new sweepstakes site today called EZWinGame and it's totally awesome. Hence, I have decided to share it with you guys.
