    Do you want free rice?
    No, not for yourself! For the noble, perhaps over-idealistic purpose of ending world hunger. Check it out at the Free Rice website. You get to play a vocab game and for every word you get right, they donate 10 grains of rice through the UN to poorer nations. The game itself is kinda addictive, though I can't seem to get above Level 41.

    You know, I've been eating it all my life, but it was only recently that I realised that the funny looking bits scattered in the rice we ate was barley! I just thought it was a different kind of rice, but no, my mum's been feeding us a variety of grains it seems. Makes me feel kinda like a chicken...

    Anyway, I've been trying to limit my rice consumption in the interests of health. How is one supposed to stick to low-carb, low-GI foods when one is Asian? Rice is a staple part of our diet! Brown rice is nowhere near as nice as white rice either...

    I really can't believe I spent a whole blog entry talking about rice. Then again, I didn't think you could have a 15 minute conversation about salt either. I've been proved wrong on both counts it seems...
