What Should I Have For Dinner?



The Problem:
One of the hardest decisions I have to make daily is:

What should I have for dinner?

Seriously.

The problem is not that there are too many choices that I can't decide on which one.
It's that there's seriously not that many good places to go, I mean, for one who has no personal transport, for a nice, good dinner. And the choices we do have are not really that appealing. >.<

Sometimes, I think that's one of the perks of staying at home. You don't have to worry about what's for dinner. Cos, mum will cook, or da bao or we go out to eat.


Here, I have to think about what to eat. And it's not an easy choice.
Cos you're either just too lazy to change from comfy spaghetti-strapped and shorts to respectable "decent" clothes (by UKM standard: no exposed knees, or arms or skin anywhere) and leave the room, or the quality of the food is not motivating enough for you to be excited about any one choice at all.

So, my roomie and I got up after our 15 minute nap (it was 15 minutes. We both had alarms). Then we looked at each other. "What to eat ah?"

"I was thinking just make Maggi again lor." (I know, the sad life of a university student - we survive on Maggi.)
"Huh? Sien la."
"Then, what about Pusanika cafe?"
"Erm, can la. But gotta walk there, then bathe after that lor."

Silence.

"Then, buying roti canai from our cafe le?"
"Mmm."

Silence again.

"Haiyaa. How to decide le?"
"I don't know...."




The Method:
So, Nana came up with this:



Option A:
Make own Maggi dinner




Option B:
Roti canai from college cafe




Option C:
Pusanika cafe





The RULE:

The card with the highest value
will be our choice for dinner tonight.
The value system is based on Chor Dai Di
(Big Two) rules, meaning
3 of diamonds is the smallest value
with 2 of spades the biggest.






The Result:



Option A


Option B


Option C






So, I guess you know what we had for dinner, huh? XD

I told Nana that this was the most unique method of decision-making that I have yet to study and learn about in my Decision-Making Skills class.

Hm, who knows. Maybe one day, the lecturer will mention: Chance Method by Chu (Aileena) 2009.

Of course, this method works only for certain problems. :)
But it solves the problem!!

Girls... dun think too much. Just eat anything that you can find in the cafe. Or go pusanika... yes it's far but the journey there with your roommate is super nice (coz I use to do that eg: go al fariz with my roommate, even take walks together - he's not a Christian, so it's great time spent) :D

Btw: Thanks for the comment in me blog. Appreciate that :D
