Early Trick or Treat

We went shopping for groceries at wholesale store last Wednesday and my husband get a huge bag of mixed candies for the Halloween. When we reach home I checked on it and found a chocolate covered coconut bar, I can't resist and taste it, pretty good. So I end up picking all the coconut chocolate bars and keep it for me and some kitkats, it's a big bag anyway. So I sneak on it without his knowing and threw the wrapper at the bathroom trash bin. But he caught me when he is about to take tout the rubbish and found out the candy wrappers =). I ate too much candy, when I woke up this morning I am not feeling well due to sore throat, hope that it won't turn into tonsillitis or I'll be so screwed.

Biscuit

I'm drooling when I saw biscuit, it's like calling my name to spread butter and honey on it and savor it's flakiness. I really have a taste for biscuit and I am the only one here in our house who love biscuit and also cheese. So if I bake biscuit that mean I am the only one who will attack it.
The other day husband called me to ask if what I want from a fast food resto and I said right away "BISCUIT." And I ate all the hot biscuit with butter and honey, so yummy. I better bake another batch!

Beach BUM

We love hanging out at the beach especially during summer season. On the photo is one of our favorite beach to go swimming, it's the surfing mecca of the west side of the island.
I'm not a good swimmer but we usually stay on the water the whole time we're at beach. The sun is bright and hot and the water is cooling and soothing. We saw turtle again and it's huge, he is swimming so near us but we don't touch it or swim with it unless you want to be the tiger shark's dinner.
Couple months ago there's one shark attack on this area, they saw 15 footer tiger patrolling the area. Well, there is a good size of sea turtle population here and sharks loves to feed on them, poor turtles.

History

I love watching History Channel, I find it so interesting and educational. I learned a lot of things from them. They have so much interesting topic about history of things. Now I am wishing that History Channel was available when I was growing up.
We have history subject at school before and it is one of my favorite subject, though I find it 's complex. But it's nice to know our fast and other nation's culture. I'm wondering if ever I was exposed more to history before maybe I am a good historian this time or explorer? lol.
