The inflation in Malaysia is terrible! So much so, that a RM50 note won't take you far. I was at the supermarket today and bought some baby butterhead lettuce, some cherry tomatoes, some kiwis, some plums and some low-fat Italian salad dressing, and it cost me RM33! So, that my change was like RM17! Wah! What happened to my shiny new RM50 note!
But even though my wallet has now slimmed down a lot, I'm happy! As I now have ingredients for several salads and fruit to last like a week or so! (5 kiwis and 5 plums).
I'm particularly pleased about the salad dressing. I read the nutrition label, and it was very short, which means, natural ingredients. None of those HFCS or artificial colours or preservatives. And it was low in calories, sugar & fat. I'm glad I know how to read labels and adjust my choices accordingly!
A very successful grocery shopping trip, I think!

Well, I got the shock of my life on Sunday afternoon. I was dreading weighing myself as I suspected that I was way heavy because I've been drinking like a fish because the weather was sooooo, freaking hot!
Well, anyway, I got on the digital weighing scale at home, and nearly fainted! I weighed 60kgs! After every dialysis, I need to get down to 56kgs, which is my current dry weight. That means I will need to extract 4.5kgs at present, which isn't possible because the max they allow in my dialysis center is 4kgs.
OOOOOhhhhh!!!! What am I to do?!! So, I ate a very small dinner and just stopped drinking water, but I did suck on some ice-cubes.
So, the whole of Sunday, I kept praying : "Lord, let me keep going to the bathroom and release some of that weight!" and he answered! Well after lunch today, I weighed 59.6kgs and after dialysis, I went down to 56kgs!!!!!
I'm so happy, I'm over the moon! After one week of owing some weight, I finally did it, now, on Tuesday, I have to control my fluids so I can have a successful day like today!

Oh, Good Lord! I'll probably go insane without air-conditioning! Nearly a week without rain and the weather is scorching hot here! 35 degrees Celsius, the last time I heard the news!
I don't feel like exercising either but I guess I'll just have to get used to exercising indoors. Well, there's always tomorrow! My lips are cracking with the heat too! I wish I could soak myself in an ice-bath till the heat wave is over!
And unfortunately, I've been over-drinking because of the heat! I'll probably get a tongue lashing from my friend the nurse when I turn up for dialysis tomorrow........

Actually, I should have posted this a few weeks ago when I actually got my hair restyled but I never got around to it till now. My bad!
Anyway, I LOVE It! I got graduated layers (I think that's what they are called) cut from my chin to the bottom, so it looks stylish. I have square jaws and I read that if I had my hair cut that way, it softens my look.
I also had my fringe styled so that I have a side parting at last, my hair is stubborn and usually I have a center parting, which I've read is bad for square jaws. Only thing is, I have to keep using hair wax to keep my fringe in place.
Thank God for hair wax!
Here's a pic (though not a very good one, but so you get the general idea of my haircut!) :

I think I'm getting addicted to churros! I keep having them every time I go to the neighborhood mall!
Yesterday, I had 2 caramel-filled churros for lunch! Man! Were they good! Surprisingly filling too! I also went to the bakery to see what they had and bought a chicken and mushroom puff. I had that for tea during dialysis today, it was good too.
Actually, I shouldn't have had the puff because frankly speaking, the churros were filling enough. So, for dinner, I omitted my usual serving of rice and just had veggies, tofu and pork ball soup with veggies for dinner.
I hope I didn't go over in calories. I usually go under.
