As the ultimate chili lover out there.. I have to admit, I do act like a retarded dragon from time to time.. Don't judge ;)
Good morning you lovely foodies out there!! :D So.. what about you, can you 'multitask' like I do ?! lol
Summer is almost there guys... in my world that means.. "HOLY CRAP.. I need stop shoving everything that's edible in my mouth and get back into the best shape I possibly can!"... I just know I feel much more comfortable in my own skin if I tone up a bit more.. :D So let's do this !
Most important is that you don't skip meals, don't starve yourself and please.. please girl...eat that f#cking cookie if you really want it.. I mean.. 1 cookie won't make you fat!! Looking at a cookie and having a conversation with your own mind 'to eat..or not to eat' is just way more exhausting!!!
A great tip to get more exercise done in a fun and relaxed way! (this is how I rollll)
- I always love to meet a good friend after work/sport/dinner, for a nice stroll downtown in the evening. This way you'll see so much more from the place you live (in my case.. Amsterdam....hail to Amsterdam!). Somehow we always get into very deep conversation that are inspiring and so meaningful. I think everybody can agree with me that cycling or scootering in Amsterdam is great! BUT .. I'm the kinda girl who's always cycling/scootering like a crazy person so fast and quite the speedy gonzalez myself ...WOOPS ..so ..No I'm not really good to connect with when I'm on the road.. Pedestrians are much safer..and really..Walking is just so much more relaxed!! A very fun way to explore your city in a new way..
Besides.. I do a lot just on my own. When I don't feel like meeting up with anyone.. I stroll around and I seriously get the best ideas.. walking down the canals of Amsterdam is like therapy! .. feeling blessed! I hope you'll turn you telly off and put your laptop away.. try it my way.. it's addictive!
Have a great day..
I have a confession to make...we've been living together for quite some time now.. I can hold you, touch you, yes.. even lick you whenever I feel like it.. and again.. you amaze me every single time..This my friends.. is the story of how 'Knifey' helped me crack up a fresh coconut! lol :D
You can buy fresh coconuts in just about every Asian Supermarket! They cost around 2,50 euro each. I used to drink these coconuts in Singapore like 4 to 5 times a day :| My mom would always warn me saying 'Eva, you can drink as much coconutwater as you like, just don't eat the white meat every single time..'. (unless you have the ambition to grow into a big mother f#cking giant??! Excuse my language..).. I had to learn it the hard way... urgh lol ;D
First things first...Use a strong solid knife, good quality is a life essential for your kitchen appliances honey! Don't be greedy spending some M to the Oney - MONEY on knifes.. unless you have the ambition to loose a finger 1, 2 or 3.. :O
Chop of the top carefully and use a straw to suck the juice right out of the nut! When you finished all of the delicious juice.. crack this thing up using more power and bang this thing HARRRD with your knife..(yeah girl.. let all of that anger go..haha)
Use a spoon to scoop out of the super sweet and tender 'meat' from this fruit... As you can see.. I'm eating it with much flair & grace.. haha ;D
I finished it all in what I think less then 10 minutes :O ..why so tasty?! WHY?!!
Stores in Amsterdam where you can buy them fresh:
Raamsteeg 9 (Zeedijk area)
'Hong Kong Superstore'
Kinkerstraat 298 (Oud West)
