Feast of Fabulous Wild Men Day

Alright now, who made this ridiculous prank? You better surrender yourself because apparently the entire internet is clueless of the origin of this absurd day. Seriously what the heck is a "fabulous wild men"? Because when someone say fabulous I think of a self proclaimed flamboyant good looking man who drive a Mercedes just to impress the ladies. And then wild makes me think of Tarzan and Robinson Crusoe which aren't that appealing to me. So uhh, can't I just use this day to feast on a rather cute hot clean-shaved Spanish guy instead? Just kidding. Really. Trust me I don't stalk Spanish guy everyday on Instagram. Where are we again? Oh right, fabulous wild men. The way I see it, it can also refers to guy that is wild in the romance department or on a more serious note, in the legal department. Anyway either they are a heartbreaker or rules breaker, let's feast on these list of guys that I think fix the description. So keep your box of tissue close and stay away from the police cause these guys about to go wild and break everything in sight. Hopefully in a figurative way.

Johnny Depp
I have to admit I'm not a fan of facial hair and I find guys with facial hair messy and unattractive most of the time. But as it has always been, there's an exception. And that exception come in the form of dark, brooding with an air of mystery named Johnny Depp. In all honesty, he's not attractive in the typical way a guy is, like he's not the handsome or the good looking heartthrob girls always drools over. But I have to say he has such a sexy lips and deep eyes that seems to swallow you as a whole. And the fact that he always play unconventional characters gave him this image as a rebel and its just something about bad boy that makes all women weak in the knees or the heart to be accurate. To be fair in this modern society I don't think anything spells wild more than a hot 19th century pirate. He has also gotten his share of trouble with the legal authorities with his known temper and the most recently the rumors of his abusive behavior to his wife Amber Heard.

John Mayer
Yes, another guy that doesn't typically fit in my book of good looking celebrity. But his dark locks and sweet voice definitely will swoon any girls in sight. And that's probably how he managed to date many equally attractive celebrities (mmm, equally problematic too) such as Jessica Simpson, Cameron Diaz, Mandy Moore and Taylor Swift. Notoriously known as the douchebags of the industry he's always making an offensive statements in media and sharing his interestingly unpleasant theory uhh, his crayon philosophy anyone? But if we managed to close our eyes to the fact that he checked everything in the bad boy list and just listen to his music, him as a singer songwriter, well he's definitely a romance worth dreaming of. Now imagine him writing and singing a song for you. It doesn't seem as bad right?

Colin Farrell
It seems that tall, dark, deep eyes men are my definition of fabulous wild men. Bad guys are probably more alike than we think they actually are. I think I started to notice him when he acted in the Minority Report and also Total Recall which are a good movie by the way. Always being listed as attractive guy across the Internet and magazines over the years, this Irish actor admitted to his drug and alcohol problems which he's struggling to overcome. Add on his foul mouthed habit, he's really a troubled guy. But that's no reason for the ladies to stay away from him, and among his long girlfriend lists are famous celebrities like Lindsay Lohan, Britney Spears, Carmen Electra and Demi Moore. However it's also hard to ignore the good he has done especially being involved in many charities such as the Foundation for Angelman Syndrome Therapeutics, UNICEF and The World Food Programme to name a few. So he's not all a bad seed, ladies!

Now of course there are a lot more out man out there that can fit into the fabulous wild men description. But this is what I can think of and whom I find at least attractive to fit the type. Can you think more of any other famous people that represent this type? Or do you have any other definition for this day? Share it with me in the comment section. Till then have a nice day!

Curried chicken day

As a member of the chicken curry lovers club, I am embarrassed that I didn't know the existence of the day my favourite dish is being celebrated. How could this be?! Honestly I'm blaming the entire nation for not making this day popular. I mean we should have a public holiday for this where everyone go to a restaurants to get curry chicken and some family restaurant broke a record for the most amount of curry chicken ever produce in a day. 

Be it the red curry or green curry, this dish is heaven with its rich spices and savory taste. Even though it's one of India's signatures dish, it's widespread and common in other part of the world too such as South East Asia and part of Carribean. Curry is also a special dish in UK where for the coronation of Queen Elizabeth in 1953 a special curry dish called Coronation Chicken is invented. To celebrate this special day, here's a recipe for a typical South East Asian curry chicken, just the way I like it. If you haven't tried curry before, you should totally head over to any restaurant that serve this delicacy, I promise you won't be disappointed! 

This is a recipe from Annielicious Food blog for curry chicken Southeast Asian style.

  • 1 whole chicken, cut into big pieces     
  • 4 potatoes, cut into big chunks
  • 150ml coconut milk
  • 500ml water, or more if you want
  • 5 to 6 tbsp curry powder
  • 2 tbsp chilli paste
  • 10 to 15 leaf of curry leaves
  • 5 bulbs shallots
  • 5 cloves garlic
  • 1 stalk lemongrass, bruised
  • Cooking oil
  • 1 tbsp salt or more to taste
  • 1 tbsp sugar, or more to taste

  1. Grind shallot and garlic into paste. 
  2. Mix curry powder and chilli paste with 3 to 4 tbsp (or more) of water to form a smooth paste. 
  3. In a large wok, or pot, heat up oil, fry shallot, garlic, curry leaves, lemongrass and curry paste till fragrant.
  4. Add in chicken pieces, sear the chicken pieces, like for 5 mins or so. 
  5. Add in water, bring to boil. Once boiled, add in potatoes, mix well, cover up and let it simmer for about 10mins under low heat. 
  6. Season with salt and sugar. Add in coconut milk and let it boil. Once boiled, taste. If the taste is right, then heat off, leave it there for 10mins before you dish up and serve. 

Special Day Everyday

Today is a special day! Because I'm again posting an entry here after what feels like forever. So to commemorate this day, I searched up for today's date to see if it's a celebration day for anything. And indeed, it is a special day. The are a few things being celebrated today from a gravy dish to working inspiration. While Curried Chicken Day and Feast of Fabulous Wild Men Day get an entry of their own, I grouped the rest together in this list and you can choose your pick or just celebrate all of it, it doesn't hurt to have more causes for celebration anyway, *wink*. And now put on your best dress and get ready on your heels for this special list before you go out for a celebration. Happy day everyone!

Healthy Weight Healthy Look Day
If you're looking for a sign to start managing your weight and to lead a more healthy life, then this is it. This is the sign. And no, this isn't just about losing your weight, that's not the only thing in the entire healthy lifestyle universe mind you. Being healthy isn't just about eating healthy food but it also involve what we do in our day to be productive. So shoosh away your phone and laptop for today. Go out for a jog or a walk at your nearest park and be comfortable with your sweats, which is actually one of the weirdest thing I've ever say, hmmm. Well, anyway today is a good day to put your rusted muscles to use, let's go.

International Kiss a Ginger Day
Probably my favourite red haired
in the entire world 
No. Wait up. Don't just randomly go to your kitchen and make out with the ginger your mom bought from the grocery store, this isn't what the day is about. This is the day for us to show and spread the love for ginger colored hair gal and guy. This day has been created in response to a campaign Kick a Ginger (now don't hate them, I swear they're just desperate to kick some balls). I think all the hate and bullying of red-headed people come from the jealousy of such shallow souls. I'm gonna admit, red hair people are among the most attractive human being and not to mention they're really special since only 1-2% of them existed in the world which make them rare. Thanks to Derek Forgie, since 2009 this date has been dedicated to a much more peaceful activity, less kicking and uh, more kissing. So go kiss that ginger girl you have a crush on and proudly use this excuse. Or take a safer road and give them some Kisses chocolate, they'll sure to love it!

Work Harder Day
This is probably a made up day that I just can't seem to find the origin. But it's all for a good cause which deserves a celebration. Or is there a possibility this day was created by some underground employers club or community? I don't know, my lazy ass is being skeptical I guess. See that? See how unenthusiastic I am right now? I mean come on, how on earth do you celebrate a day for working harder? By working past the hours and into the morning? Yuck, I don't remember celebration is another word for suffering. Or by partying all day as a reward after working hard? Emm, that isn't the right thing to do on this day either, is it? And instead of working harder, I'll prefer to work smart and efficient and safe myself from the misery. Well now, let's just call this an awkward thing to be celebrated and get back to work. We need to work harder today don't we?

National Marzipan Day
I have a feeling that we actually have a holiday for every food that ever existed. This colorful candy with adorable shapes are made of ground almond mixed with sugar, honey or corn syrup. Sometimes almond oil or extract will be added too to achieve a stronger flavor. To celebrate this day you can either make marzipans yourself or better yet to stop at a confectionery store nearby and get yourself a marzipan to have a taste of this sweet day.

National Pharmacists Day
Well of course this is the day to celebrate the pharmacists who always know what you needed in time of need, well, medically speaking. Trust me, we wouldn't have survived until now if it isn't for the pharmacists making our days much more bearable especially when we're just not in the best condition. If you happen to be at a pharmacy today, show your gratefulness to them and wish them well so that next time your drop by, you're not going to worry if they're prescribing you to some weird strong drug again.

So haven't find any thing for a cause of celebration? Look up my next post for Curried Chicken Day and Feast of Fabulous Wild Men Day!
