I thought my birthday was just gonna be a normal birthday without any surprises --which I'll still be thankful & happy about it, I'm always excited on birthdays! But Audrio came right on the night before my birthday, gave me a birthday cake with 18-shaped candles on it, and a birthday present, a polaroid instax camera!! A birthday surprise given by an uber-lovely boyfriend on my birthday... I couldn't ask for more. :)
Blowing the candles reminds me of how God takes care of me though out this 18 wonderful years of me living on earth, and still counting. God provides me exactly anything & everything I need, from the beginning until the end, He is the alpha and omega. :) Thank You God for lovely people You've put in my life, who means a lot to me, called family & friends. And of course, Audrio.
Needless to say the end of exams was marked by a few sneaky beerios and the obligtory bridging contest in the middle of the Normanby. After about four minutes of bridge hold it was bordering on ridiculous so Grant's cousin and I truced to share the glory of '2011 Bridge Holder of the year, uni student in pub edition'
As a result, my intercostals now feel like someone has taken to them with a mallet. Strangely enough though, my abs are fine.
So this brings me to the strange predicament of not really knowing what to do for the next two weeks. Of course I still have to work and earn a few clams when I can, but after such a hectic semester at uni I almost am relishing the opportunity to become housewifey, doing the washing, hanging out on FB and watching daytime repeats of Neighbours from the 90's while perfecting my cheese cube and gherkin canapes.
Nonetheless, I don't want to get bored so I have decided to make a list of things to keep me occupied these holidays...
•Learn to make a mean satay sauce
•Perfect the art of poaching pears in alchoholic beverages
•Now that exams are over, moderate my nightly wine intake and perhaps ration it down a bit. It's a costly affair, after all
•Fix my race bike when my crank arrives, ride said bike
•Maybe pick up the roadie and start doing some riding again that goes further than the BMX track
•Practice my cyclocross dismounts and remounts
•Clean the coffee machine more frequently
Like the original, I couldn’t find a caffeine content for this drink anywhere. Unknown.
Stronger and markedly less subtle in its action than the original, perhaps owing to the somewhat higher sugar content, but I’m not sure—since I can’t find a caffeine content for any of the flavors, I couldn’t tell you if there’s a difference between them.
Can't say there's a whole lot that's subtle about this drink—the look, the taste, the kick—it’s all very showy. If you like your drinks more intense, I'd go with this one above the original, though I have to say I like the latter more, given the fact that it provided me with an experience unique among energy drinks, though this one is more standard.

In the Book of Psalms, King David says, “Serve G-d in Joy, come before Him in Song.” and in our daily prayers we say regarding G-d, “He prefers melodious song...”
The great Kabbalist Rabbi Yitzchok Luria once said to his student, the reason why he merited the holy prophetic spirit of G-d, was because of his great joy when performing G-d’s commandments.
Here we have a very important point to be made, which is expressed in the following law.
Maimonides writes in his Code of Jewish Law, although it’s a mitzvah- an important deed, to drink a cup of wine on the holidays, one should not over indulge in drinking and frivolity, and claim he is increasing in joy. For this is only an expression of being wild and frivolity. We are commanded to be joyous and happy, which is a great service of G-d, and this cannot be fulfilled when wild and drunk.
The Bible says in Deuteronomy – “Because you did not serve G-d in joy and with a good plentiful heart, you will serve your enemies.” Rabbi Shnuer Zalman of Liadi explains, that the true enemies of a person are the destructive thoughts and internal challenges. These enemies are eradicated, and to begin with, not given a chance to come into our minds, through the joy of serving G-d. King Solomon already counsels us, “In ALL your ways you shall know Him.”
Once, a student came to Rabbi Shnuer Zalman of Liadi and said, “He was being assaulted and overwhelmed with bad thoughts.” The Rabbi told him, “They gather in empty spaces”. Rabbi Schneerson explained, “If a person would fill his mind and heart with the joy and delight, with the richness and fullness of serving G-d, there would be no room for the emptiness and darkness to take hold.”
When a person feels an excitement in his heart that he is able to give pleasure to his Creator by serving him, this strikes a certain chord deep down inside that sparks light and vibrancy all over a person’s body and life.
There will always be those who will mock, since this is their mechanism for overcoming their own jealousy and guilt. A person should just ignore those who mock him and who only derive pleasure from physical materialistic pursuits.
There is a saying in the name of the Baal Shem Tov. “ Foolishness, sadness and a haughty feeling of self worth is considered in many ways, as like a terrible sin of the Bible ( although not actually) and, discriminating perception, joy brought about through finding the good in everything, and a calm swiftness are considered ( again, although not actually ) a Commandment of the Bible”.
Once, a great Rabbi saw someone dancing to his morning prayers. It was quite obvious this person felt and understood the true joy and meaning of what he was saying. The Rabbi commented, “Great things will come from these prayers.” Another time, this same Rabbi saw someone dancing, called him by name, and said, “What a pity to wear out a good pair of shoes.”
