I know it's still a little early, but I'm declaring this the 2012 Quote of the Year for me.

"Your priorities are where you spend your time.  You can't say your priorities are A, B, and C, if all your time is spent on D, E, and F."
                                        --+Nat Torkington 

Nat laid this on me in the middle of a three hour+ epic discussion that we had at Sci Foo, and it was one of those baseball-bat-to-the-head moments for me. Most people I know say that their family is their highest priority, but act like their family is second, third, or even fourth on their priority list.

I don't think a day has gone by since that chat without me thinking about that quote at least once, and I have absolutely, without a doubt changed the way I spend my time as a result of it.

It's easy to say that something is a priority, especially when everyone agrees that "yeah, of course that's a priority!"

But it's a lot harder to live like that.

Thanks Nat.  Beers are on me next time we get together.

Very good food for lunch on a normal day. I really like the cowboy burger with onion rings. Get level-up for their excellent cash back to save.

Good for cheap dim sum on a Sunday afternoon. The place is very big so it's easy to get a table. Service staffs are always busy, it is difficult to get their attention. Cheap prices for food though.
