CNY is here again!

Tuesday, February 01, 2011

Yup, Chinese New Year (CNY) season is here again! Lot's of high fat snacks, mandarin oranges, bbq meat pieces etc. In other words, lot's of yummy food! And most of them are unhealthy.

I made myself a promise that I won't be greedy and consume loads of those high-fat snacks. I'll just take little bites and also promise myself not so many bites as even little bites can add up if I have too many of them.

I love this years CNY mainly because it's not a heat wave! Normally, during CNY season, the house becomes a veritable baking oven because usually there is a heat wave. This year, it's rainy most of the time, so the wheather has been comfortably cool (so nice for napping, lol!).

Well, I also need to exercise more and consistently. Let's see how I do today!

A mixed day!

Thursday, January 27, 2011

I woke up today, toke my morning does of meds and supplements, then headed out with my Mom to fill up my monthly prescription. The traffic was horrible but I told myself, I wouldn't let that stress me out and ruin my day. I told myself to be patient and I managed to collect my meds for the next month.

After that, my Mom took me to brunch, it should have been breakfast but as it was about 11am, it was more like a brunch. I was quite hungry by then actually, having headed out of the house without breakfast. But all I had were Java noodles (a noodle dish with thick gravy made with sweet potatoes, garnished with mung bean sprouts, tofu, potato pieces, and half an egg, though I ditched the yolk : medical reasons). I also had half a piece of tofu stuffed with fish paste, 1 fish paste fritter and a piece of fried eggplant stuffed with fish paste.

Then I made a mistake, my Mom bought some fried fritters, I had 2 pieces of the yam ones, I love yam! And when I got home later in the evening, I ate another fritter, this had a sweet chinese paste (I'm not sure what it's made from, the chinese call it annual cake) sandwiched between a piece of sweet potato and a piece of yam.

We went grocery shopping after brunch. And I treated myself to a bit of soft-serve yogurt with sliced mango and rambutan (a Malaysia fruit), cost me RM9 but I loved every spoonful!

I had a very relaxing day on the whole, I finished the 4th Harry Potter book (I read the last few chapters today), then watch the VCD of the 4th Harry Potter movie (for the unintiated : it was called 'Harry Potter & the Goblet of Fire'). Then I went for an hour long brisk, brisk walk! I even sweated a little (I have to let you know, I find it very hard to sweat).

I'm going to continue with my cross-stitching after posting this. I didn't have perfect day but I did have a healthy home-cooked dinner. Oh, my Mom does the cooking, but I'm not complaining, she's a health nut too. lol!

    yup, I love cross-stitch but it's very time consuming, you won't progress much unless you sew for hours and hours.

    It sounds like your day was great, even with all the food! I used to cross-stitch but I haven't done any in years and years and have forgotten most of the stitches. Do you enjoy it?

    I love walking in the neighbourhood park and streets. I live in a quiet area, so traffic is not a big problem. I also like workout DVDs, particularly Philates! But I'm getting bored with my DVD selection, perhaps, I need to get some new DVDs.

    What kind of exercise do you like to do? My favorite is water aerobics, but it's too cold right now. I have a Wii and walking until then.

I'm now a forum moderator!

Sunday, November 07, 2010

at work. And I'm getting paid! Isn't that cool? Some forums don't pay.

Please pray for me that I will excel in it so I can get paid more and maybe even be part of the web team in the future.

    Unfortunately, I have now left that job and I guess moderating that forum is out of the question now as I can't face my ex-boss anymore. She kept insulting me several times a day towards the end of 2010. I am now looking for work. I would actually like some online work but all I've found seem to scams as they require payment up front.

Any recommendations anyone?
