Meltdown - Ben Elton

Congrats to myself. After a fruitless semester, I have come to my senses and finished reading Ben Eltons 12th book. FYI, he's my favourite writer.
I'm kinda lazy to put words together into a sentence right now so, I'll just copy a draft I saved on my handheld device. Please excuse the repetition of words/facts and grammatical errors.
I have always been a fan of Ben Elton. Last weekend, I finished reading his 12th book; 'Meltdown'. Each an every book of his are based on a theme. Meltdown revolves around money problems, specifically, speculation/stocks/shares sort of Wall Street stuff.
It looks into the life of a bunch of friends dealing with money and speculation in every aspect including bank governer, stockbroker, business women, land dealers and minister; during their richest days and poorest moments. How friendships gone sour because of money and how previously posh family suffer through life without a nanny after a financial meltdown.
'Meltdown' certainly have it's element of surprise like the rest of his writings, but this time, instead of putting it in the end, it was put towards the ending. It is certainly the less radical and cleanest book written by Ben Elton.
Overall, it's not my favourite book from Ben Elton but I love it. It's different from the rest of his books, in a good way. I like how the story sometimes focus on raising children.
I would love to quote from the book but, like I've mentioned earlier, I'm in lazy mode.

Pregnant & nursing safe* sunscreens

You should really read this article on sunscreen. Both mineral and chemical sunscreen is risky. Nak elak skin cancer, hormone and reproductive system affected. Tsk. But it is still important so you need to know what you put on your skin. Make informed decisions all time, every time.

So what is safe (*no oxybenzone, octocrylene, octinoxate, octisalate, homosalate, 4-Methylbenzylidene camphor (link)) for me might not be for you.
Whatever it is, since I've spend few weeks going through ingredients in stores and online (CosDNA/skincarisma/ratzilla), here's *MY*{asian beauty} safe list:
1. dear, Klairs Soft Airy UV Essence SPF 50 PA ++++ (Chemical: Uvinul A Plus & Uvinul T 150) (link)
2. Huxley Sun Cream; Stay Sun Safe SPF50+/PA++++ (Combo: Uvinul A Plus, Parsol SLX, TiO2) (link)
3. Make P:rem UV Defense Me. Blue Ray Sun Fluid SPF50+ PA++++ (Mineral: ZnO2, TiO2) (link)

Before the year started I made a list of resolutions...

No ice cream and iced drinksProject #hitpan - one year makeup shopping ban, to clear off expired makeup and to finish off as much product as I canTo be less fussy, less naggy, less cranky, less annoying towards husbandNo fast foodTo become more presentable - after nine months of sloppiness at the office ... only to break most of it.
I've decided to let go of resolution #1 and #4 because, I got to be honest with myself, it's not possible right now.
Currently, resolution #2 and #5 are still ongoing. #3? Let's just say January is a trial month.

Projek Maging Steakhub @ Bandar Baru UDA

On his 28th birthday, we went to Projek Maging. Projek Maging's specialty is *obviously* steak. 
He ordered lamb ribs so I ordered something cheaper (because I'm paying), lamb loin and mushroom soup as appetizer. For dessert we had chocolate flourless cake with ice cream.
The lamb loin steak was good. Delicious even without the sauce. Soup and cake, average. The ribs though, exceptional! My mouth waters just thinking about it. It is so good. Everything just melts in your mouth... *cries*. Belanja please? :(
