It's official. Mani the parrot and Paul the Octopus has predicted their winners for the World Cup. Personally, I hope Mani's right! Go Oranje! As for the bronze cup, I hope Paul's right, full speed and accuracy ahead Deutschland! In short, I don't care who predicts what, but rather which team has won my heart and support through their form and personalities. Just like Ghana, they may have lost the match against Uruguay, when their winning goal was denied by Suarez's infamous handball, but in everyone's eyes they are the true winners of the match.
Tonight's the big night for Germany. Viel Gluck Deutschland (Lots of good luck Germany!) Hoping to see Miroslav Klose do this again tonight, hopefully twice as that would mean he would be the player with the most goals in world cup history! Good luck Klose!!
As the two matches are going to be held in the wee hours for fans in Asia, so do remember to stay hydrated. Sipping on non-caffeinated tea is a great idea. Try chamomile, jasmine, peppermint tea or unsweetened juices instead of carbonated drinks. Alcohol-phillics should try this cocktail that I whipped using the bare ingredients in my fridge. Shake 1/4 cup fresh lemon juice + lots of ice + 3 tablespoonful of Rum and ''voila'', there you have it, a refreshing drink with a side 'kick' to it.
Midnight snacking is not my habit as I do not sleep well with a full tummy. However, here are some great healthy ideas for you 'junkies' out there!
Frozen blueberries + raspberries in a alcopop vodka bath (or sparkling grape juice for a non-alcoholic alternative) Pour some ice-cold alcopop vodka over a bowlful of frozen blueberries + raspberries, enough to submerge a third of them. Read my previous post here and here :)
Steamed Japanese Sweet Potatoes 1/2 kilo Japanese Sweet Potatoes (choose the thinner and shorter ones as they take a shorter time to be steamed) Wash the sweet potatoes and scrub lightly without bruising the skin. Place the sweet potatoes on a steel rack in some boiling water in a kuali. Steam for 15 mins and test with a skewer. Sweet potatoes are cooked when skewer is able to get through
