“I’m doing nothing” is what you say when you really don’t want to say what you’re doing. Or, it’s what you say when you don’t know what you’re doing. - nothing important
Whenever I think of doing nothing which I have been doing, it will remind me of something I read from Winnie the Pooh. So, I goggle as you can find almost anything you can't remember goggling, and found Nothing's important - an interesting read about nothing.
I was looking for this:I laughed aloud when I read this many years ago and somehow it stuck in my mind. I wonder what goes through a kid's mind when reading the book. Is it a good idea to recommend a child to read Winnie the Pooh?
“I like that too,” said Christopher Robin, “but what I like
doing best is Nothing.”
“How do you do Nothing?” asked Pooh, after he had wondered for a long time.
“Well, it’s when people call out at you just as you’re going off to do it ‘What are you going to do, Christopher Robin?’ and you say ‘Oh, nothing,’ and then you go and do it.”
“Oh, I see,” said Pooh.
“This is a nothing sort of thing that we’re doing now.”
“Oh, I see,” said Pooh again.
“It means just going along, listening to all the things you can’t hear, and not bothering.”
“Oh!” said Pooh.

One day last week, I came to work with just tomatoes because Fiona got other ingredients for a sandwich - wholemeal bread and tuna... So, that was tuna sandwich for breakfast.
Then Twister showed up with the above and hey, there's my lunch... ^_* Fried eggs on the left and stuff green chilies on the right. (My mouth is watering as I type.) Twister posts recipes on her blog, if you don't already know, but its all in chinese. I offered and tried/attempted to translate(with much help from Fiona) them to english as someone requested but think I failed to come up with anything.
You can find the original recipe here. And below translated to english...
Stuffed Green Chilies
- 8 green chilies
- 1 slice lean pork (chopped)
For meat seasoning
- a little bit of parseley
- a little bit of five spice powder
- 1/2 tsp salt
- 1 tbsp oyster sauce
- 1 tsp sesame oil
For the sauce
- chopped garlic
- chopped shallots
- taucheo (yellow bean sauce)
- cornstrach (add in water)
1. Prepare the green chilies for stuffing - clean the green chilies and slit in the middle. Discard the seeds.
2. Chopped lean pork, add in all the seasonings, stir in one direction and marinate for 3 hours.
3. Stuff the meat paste into the green chilies.
4. Heat up some oil in a wok and fry the green chilies until golden in color. Dish up.
5. Using the same wok, leave some oil, stir fry the chopped garlic, shallots until fragant. Add in the taucheo and some water. Thicken the sauce with corn starch and ready to serve.
That was not all... some more got dessert!
Another colleague came by with her sister's made steamed pumpkin covered with grated coconut.
