Easiest Way to Get Me Doing Something is by Giving Me Food

Being a foodie has its weakness. I’m easily tempted by food. It doesn’t matter if it’s a cheap $2 chicken rice or $6 for yoghurt, I’ll (90%) always say yes to it.

The only time I would say no if it’s pork or something with a lot of herbs.

I’m so easily moved by food, it’s frustrating

At night, he came back with a bar of chocolate. AND I CAVED.

Food is pretty much the reason why I didn’t have a rebellious phase.

My mind says no but every other part of me says yes

So, I rejected his offer. I think I gave him 5 different excuses… until he said he’ll buy me food — any food I want. To that, I said yes in a heartbeat.

In a city where everything is expensive, who would say no to free food?

I didn’t have to think twice about it. Tonight, we feast!

It’s called, “Living Smart”

Someone once said, “When you open yourself to receive, you’ll receive more in life”.

Okay, that’s not the actual quote but it has the same meaning.

But don’t just receive without giving something back. Whenever you have a little extra, try to give back to someone else who’s in need.

Food can also be a motivator

When I told my friend that I wanted to travel and experience the various culture, her response was, “I want to try their food”.

Some people live their lives to try new experiences. Some people do it to try new food.

Now, my question is… Am I the only one who gets easily moved by free food?
