Froggy, The Prince... NOT!

For the the 3rd time, I saw a frog (one with swollen neck and belly) in the toilet, EEEK!!! First one was a lightest yellow or cream in color, second one was darker than the first one, and the one that I saw last night was brown... so gross! I really don't know how it got there, I've been searching for a possible hole but couldn't find any.

McArabia (I'm lovin' it)

I miss McArabia -- love their Kitkat or M&M McFlurry (only Oreo McFlurry is available here), their Quarter Pounder with cheese and Big Mac (making it look like a 1/8 Pounder and Small Mac here), their Chocolate Milk (from Happy Meal). Plus they have a very interesting menu... Fruit Bites, McArabia Kofta, Veggie Burger, just to name a few. I can't list everything on their menu, that would take too long. McDo here sucks a bit compared to McArabia.

When Drawing Gone Wrong

October of last year, I did a bit of doodling. It was the first face that I've ever managed to draw. As expected, since I'm not an artist, my drawing went bad...
