I love junk food. I am a certified KFC Hotshots Meal fanatic. It's my comfort food. Nothing beats the taste of crispy fries dipped in a special KFC gravy. Yum!

When I met and married Charlie, my junk food trips became less and less frequent. Yeah, he is a health freak. I thought that was cool at first, being married to a vegetarian. But reality bites with a big Ouch. I've never done anything as difficult as turning my head when I pass by McDonalds. It doesn't help that he would tease me everytime. The first few months were torture. I felt like an addict deprived of my choice of drug. I wanted to join Junk Food Anonymous. "Hi, Im Shal. I'm a KFC Hotshots addict."

BUT my healthy diet (which consists of organic, unpolished red rice grown in Bukidnon, cucumber, leafy greens, fresh fish, chicken, eggs and crackers) did a lot for my health. When everybody else are getting the flu, I didn't get it when usually i would be the first casualty. So after months of torture, I am getting the benefits.

I still miss junk though. My dear husband will oftentimes take pity on me and bring me to good old McDo for a cheeseburger and fries. The only thing he likes there is the airconditioner. When i firs met him last year, he was very vocal about his dislike for McDonalds and fastfood. He would often ask, "Why would somebody sell people food that will kill them? It's all about profit motive. They dont care if you get sick!"  I often would grow tired of hearing his complaints so I just avoid the junk as much as I can for the sake of peace.

Then yesterday, he showed me this documentary. It was interesting and I feel I understand where he is coming from now. You can find the whole video on YouTube divided into 10 parts.

Tell me what you think.:)

It's interesting to see just how pervasive memory has become in our everyday lives. It seems like everytime I turn my head, I see something with a card slot or USB port . I guess it makes sense though, considering how cheap memory has become lately...

Gahhhhh... I shouldn't be complaining. I can't get through a day without my R4 / R4i!
