As usual, my weekday’s morning routine would be a cup of coffee and a copy of The Star newspaper before I leave home. I must admit that most of the time I’m reading on headlines rather than content. To be precise, I’m sort of ‘laser-ing the newspaper’. If the headline is interesting, I’ll continue to read on the content. Else….skip skip…(bad habit) Ya…but that enables me to save time and get a quick news. Am I right? *raise eye brow*
Every Wednesday, there’s a page on StarMetro, story written by Xandria Ooi (TV Host, Writer & also a Producer). I must say her articles kinda attracts me to read from beginning to end. Most of the time, her article is interesting and quite true. Today’s article was about “The secret to happiness-It cannot be derived from pleasures alone”.
Well; I’m not going to elaborate the whole story here. You gotto read it yourself. She said; “One of my favourite things in the world is ice-cream, and I’ve always said that ice-cream makes me extremely happy.” which I couldn’t deny. Ice cream is one of the dessert that makes me feel happy and stress free. Do you agree? Somehow because of the ‘fat factors’, it made me hold back many times. Like what was said by Xandria too…. “I would feel very good as I consume a pint of ice-cream, but after the pint is gone, I would feel guilty. What’s worse, I would feel fat.”
—But I still pamper myself once in awhile la…..
Why ice cream can make you feel happy? Unilever scientists says “Ice cream has an immediate effect on parts of the brain that previous research shows responds to pleasurable tastes, including the orbitofrontal cortex (the ‘processing’ area of the brain)

yeah, if i had to pick one dessert above all others, i think i’d go with ice cream instead of cakes, chocolates and everything else. vanilla if i want something fuss-free, chocolate chip cookie dough if i feel like indulging 😀
