Fillets are more expensive.

But cheaper than if bone gets stuck and I can't get it down and end up having to go A&E. Alternatively, skip fish completely. :lol:

I also dunno how to swim. Almost drown at ECP beach when I was a little girl, think yet to go to sch. Very scary, hence phobia of water.

Thanks for sharing, interesting information on the stringent selection of PSC scholars. Only disconcerting point is the last sentence, which threw all the selection tests into doubt as Mr. Lee admitted that the process cannot predict how the 19-yr old would turn out at 25 or 30.

Dont assume fillets have no bones.
Whenever I eat fish, even otah, I will be extra careful.
As long as I sense something suspicious, I will spit it. I always tell dd the same too.
Yes, we dont eat much fish :roll:

Jennifer,
Hope you are better now.

I think we need to take a first step in everything we set out to do. Then moderate the plans as we go along.

The book is worth reading as we understand why he carried out certain policies. We get to know that not all scholar candidates in his team delivered and had to be let go.

I am now in the chapter on graduate males marrying graduate females so that the offspring are smart too. Recalled some time ago sb in ksp shared sth similar - to have smart children, the man must marry a smart or smarter woman than he is. Mr Lee based this on what he had read and observed in Sg as well as other parts of the world.

Mr Lee was also concerned that the talent pool to be recruited into the public service is harder to find now as many young people are unwilling to enter into public service. His grandchildren included.

Agree with bones in fillets :smile:

Feeling less tightness in the neck. The knees are getting better too.

:thankyou:

btw, I only discovered I bruised my left cheek slightly when I was applying exfoliating cream ytd :lol:

I must hv first banged my left side, then my right side of the body on the floor during the fall.
