Bubur Kuah Opor
I’m a porridge lover *Tata --> seriously thinking… what kind of food I dislike? --> Can’t figure out the answer :D*. Hmm… what a warm and yummy dish to fill our empty belly after fasting from dawn to dusk. Thanks Allah… it was so comfortable in my belly… I have a good news to tell you buddies, hahahaha *wanna laugh first* --> I’M NO LONGER ALLERGIC TO SHRIMP yay!!!! How come? Of cos I’ve trained myself to consume shrimps, small amount for the initial trials. In the very first trial, it was little bit hard, I had to convince myself that I could eat shrimp without getting terrible itchy and many small bumps on my face. I said to myself that I would be fine, no itches! It worked, though I could feel my lips were slightly itchy – but only happened on my lips and only for a while. For the next trials, it always worked. I also asked my friend who is allergic to shrimp to eat the shrimp that I tried. Actually her allergy is worse than mine But, when she was going to eat it, her mind suggested her that she would be allergic *she told me about it*. And the result? Yes, she was. On her next trial, I convinced her to eat shrimp with a condition that she must have had a strong faith that she’d be okay eating that shrimp, she wouldn’t get itchy. And??? It worked to her too! Then I got the KEY! That faith, the faith to convince ourselves that we’ll be okay. Although the truth can’t be proved scientifically yet, what I could learn from here was positive faith will yield positive result :D. And besides my genetic, I think my worries and negative feeling and thought about what would happen to me before consuming shrimp might have had caused the terrible effect of consuming it. And finally? Hohoho… shrimps do taste GOOOOOD…

NOTE --> For you who suffer from a big allergic to shrimp, DO NOT TRY THIS AT HOME hehehehe… Consult with your doctor (^_^)v
