Just wanted to announce that I've gained 100 EXP for my cooking skills - today I made stirfry with home-made sweet-sour sauce from scratch for the first time!
Always thought that's something you can only get from restaurants and supermarkets.

So, anyone of you got any exciting level-ups lately?

I'm just being a nerd. Kitchen-Fu is Kung-Fu or something like that, the skill of my cookery - and EXP is from gaming, as in "experience points" that you get to level up when you do something difficult etc. Don't mind me, I'm just a big geek
(Where's a nerd smiley when you need one?)

squatting and deadlifting activates the glutes, making my ass twice as muscly as yours.

although you could probably boast with having more abs than me.

There's a surprising lot of work for the glutes in bellydance - you just don't see it beneath the skirt, usually
A common drill for glute isolations:

Sooo...? (That said, I have pretty strong abs, but they're hidden under a layer of blubber
)

Both maybe? Shocked because you have just discovered one of the secret techniques that bellydancers learn as they undergo the hardships of dance education... and excitement because Suhaila owns everyone's glutes, ever.

Yes it is
I used this recipe: http://vegweb.com/index.php?topic=8866.0 It's really very simple! It's a little thin, but once you put it in a stirfry or such it's just perfect. I'll try halving the sugar next time, though.
