trip by sea

a trip to there by sea sounds better. i always love sea. surely i will not choose the plane to get there. not just because it is often delayed, i think too it will spoil our trip.
im from north so i have to save more than anyone else in south in order that my dream can come true.

why fast food hated

i consciously hate fast food because of its flavour as well as its "fast eating". one time i go by Mac or Burgerking i order at least two great portions, as result i gradually become fatter than used to be. the only best way for me is to tell myself please hate it.

i dont know exactly whether spaghetti or pasta can be called noodle? if yes it is very popular here in Europe. but anyway i´d prefer asian noodle simply because i have yet to learn the originally italian methode for cooking spaghetti and because i am from asia.

Italy a wonderful place to holiday
