    Very bad presentation. She just rambles without even breathing. No time to digest the information and understand it. Ppl like he should not be making a presentation.

                            He thought I was lying and was gunna spank me . I did it again . And one more time in front of him.i became immune lol. He said well now I'll just have to whip you or something. I started faking the pain lol he was like shut up your pretending go outside and play. I watched my mouth from then on ....tried. cause he had big leather belts that he swung like a baseball bat !no no no not me.

                              Please do not try to eat something sooo spicy for it will actually be soo spicy to burn your taste receptors/buds and you cannot taste anymore (but you can eat the carolina reaper without reaching for water or milk)

                                                                                            Growing up in Indonesia, I used to eat spicy food since I was a child as we have varies spices such as chili, cayenne, pepper, nutmeg, clove, galangal, shallot, etc. Unfortunately, thats also the main reason why Netherland occupied us long time ago😕.
                                                                                            Anyway, maybe thats why my spiciness tolerance level is above the average, especially when ordering food with frens from other country, they usually think its too hot n spicy while I am enjoying the food n being okay with it :)
