Write about a time you had a Goldilocks experience, exploring different choices and finally arriving at “just right.”
Yes I had a Goldilocks experience in our food court in the mall. Once I went to one of the shops that claimed they were serving, ‘Mid eastern food,’ I wasn’t impressed it did not taste like anything, it was bland and tasteless.
I then went to try out ‘Rice bowl’ they served too much rice, vegetables sliced too large and shrimps were too small, which was a disappointment.
I then tried ‘Thai express’, it is a new one opened recently, they had different kinds of food, I chose chicken with noodles,there was a lot of rice noodles, very little chicken pieces, they said it was spicy, I didn’t think they have any knowledge of using the right amount of spices. The mixture of variety of spices made the dish tasteless.
Last week-end we went to the same, ‘Thai Express’ , this time I ordered rice with chicken, it was quite good. The chef did a better job this time, which can be because he gained more experience as this dish is ordered by more customers.
Do you need to agree with an artist’s life style or politics to appreciate their art? To spend money on it?
If I love art it does not have anything to do with the artist’s lifestyle or politics. Art appreciation and the artist’s lifestyle and his political affiliation, are two different things.
I have art work of a variety of artists, I collected them because they are beautiful and makes the wall they are hung on attractive.
I think arts education should be encouraged in elementary and secondary schools. It has a twofold role. I gives students some literacy and some level of technical skills and provides them with some understanding and interest , which can make them consider studying it in higher education.
Peoples lives are inspired by the arts, they listen to music, read fiction, watch TV dramas. It is believed the well-being and happiness of people will be higher where art is given a prominent role.
Arts has been in existence since the earliest humans, some of it can be seen in Egyptian art:
The early Egyptians wrote their letters using art.
Students who gain mastery in an art may discover their life’s work or their life’s passion .
You are stranded in a foreign city for a day with no money and no friends,where do you go; what do you do?
If I am stranded in an unknown place with no money, friends, or a place to stay. I will go to a school, find the office of the principal. I will ask to see him/her.
Next I will tell him how I landed in this unknown place without any money or friends. I’d tell him my name, where I am from and will ask him if he’d lend me some money and book a room in a fairly decent hotel.
Again I am hoping the principal is a respectable man, he’d help me. If I’m successful, I’d make arrangements with the hotel manager to let me know the name of the company which offers touring the city at a reasonable rate.
After the day is over, I’d thank all the people who helped me when I was stranded, especially the principal.
When I’m back at home, I’d send a thank you card to all the people who helped me. I’d also send a cheque to the principal to repay the money I borrowed from him.
