At Yantai, Shanghai

We are at Yantai (Shanghai) for the weekend. What impressed me most is not the white snow but the heavy haze here.

"Never judge a book by its cover."

We usually have the beef soup noodle  (pix 1) at PhoBay, Korea. Today I decided to explore by myself. I ordered the crabmeat fried rice & appetizer.
First, look at the fried rice. It's red, starchy & the crabmeat looked like the crabstick. (Pix 2)

I asked myself, "How could I be so wrong?" I thought I probably had to buy a bun after this. But I was wrong. It was very nice, spicy, tasty and I almost finished it.

Never suffer from money problem, you always suffer from an idea problem

You never suffer from money problem, you always suffer from an idea problem. - Robert H. Schiller 

"How Chunking Improved Your Intuition."
Intuition depends on your ability to pull together unrelated facts from your pools of knowledge & throw them at the decision.

Chunking is a weird term describing what the mind does when it stores information in parcels rather than individual pieces. You can only comfortably juggle about seven (7) pieces at one time. If you try to handle many more than seven, your mind overloads.

People who appear to have great intuition really have become very adept at chunking information. It enables them to access huge amounts of information in microseconds.

The Key to intuition, then, is saturating yourself with information about the decision.

What Happen You Do Nothing?

Doing what's right isn't the problem.
It is knowing what's right. -Lyndon B. Johnson 

Earlier mentioned, there are only 2 types of problems, $ or 👯, within those categories, there are many different kinds of problems.

Example, What Happens If You Do Nothing?
-When you are faced with a go or no go decision you should first consider "What happens if we do nothing?"

-If nothing bad will happen you should wait it out.

- When there are no negative consequences half of your problems will go away if you give them time. -Roger Dawson

At Geoje

We had BBQ at Geoje, 48km away from Busan, where the shipyard industry is.
Eating at Geoje is far more expensive than in Busan, as Geoje has a lot of foreigners. 
You probably need to pay about US$356 in Geoje, compared to about US$160 in Busan for the same types of food.

It's a good experience to be at Geoje.

Secrets of Power Problem Solving

Secrets of Power Problem Solving 

If you have a hammer, you tend to see every problem as a nail.-Abraham Maslow.

If you break your neck, 
if you have nothing to eat, 
if your house is on fire, then you have got a problem.
Everything else is inconvenience.- Robert Fulghum

There Are Only Two Types of Problems.-
The first step to solving your problem is to decide whether the problem is about money or people.
There really are only two different kinds of problems: money problems and people problems.
People have difficulty solving problems when they confuse the two.- by Roger Dawson

Secrets of Power Problem Solving

m reading a best selling author & speaker since 1982, Roger Dawson . "Secrets Power Problem Solving" that is packed with wisdom, help anyone improve their life & yet it's easy & fun to read.
Decision: How reversible is the decision ?

"Slamming the front door of your house or the door of your car is not a problem because you have the key in your pocket you can quickly reverse the action. If the key is inside the car or house it could create a big problem, 

Whenever you choose a solution to a problem you should be thinking, "This seems like the right thing to do, but if I'm wrong can I easily undo the action?"

Italian Food at Busan

We just had our Italian lunch, operated by the local Koreans. The food is good and spicy, the quality nothing lesser. 
I have finished all my mushroom soup, as shown. 
The coffee seems to be diluted but it's good coffee except that the coffee beans have been made or treated differently, that's why its color is lighter.

At Korea

had a full day of traveling, from Singapore to Incheon (Seoul) and now I'm at Busan.
It is Spring in Korea now but the weather at Seoul is 5-9 degrees Celsius and at Busan it's 9-12 degrees Celsius.
