Payday Ritual

Horee... Its Payday.
Unlike most people, 80% of my pay goes directly to my wife's account. 20% is for me to pay my credit cards, insurance, etc. Don't feel like having a debt collector knocking on your door or cellphone ever (anti banget), and insurance is a must for me, although I don't get sick often, but its good to know I'm covered.

So the first days of payday is spent wisely paying bills and feeling proud, the next day is finding out the rest of that 20% is now only about 5%....

WTF? Is that all that's left??!??!!

Well at least I don't have to worry about buying food and clothes, etc, thats Rika's department (since I give her most of my pay). Well that's my monthly payday ritual, how's yours?

All Rolled Up
Frying the Spring Rolls
Crispy & Crunchy Golden Browns

My weekend cooking project.
Rolled up and cooked about 280 of these bad boys. Each filled with bamboo shoots, mashed potatoes with mayo, thin slices of carrots, slices of boiled eggs, and some boiled rice noodles. Served with Vietnamese chili. Delicious, the whole family and friends finished the lot in less than an hour. Hungry crowd.
