A Belated Bday Surprise!!!!

Saturday, November 02, 2013

I went for dialysis as usual this Friday. I really didn't expect it. At around 5pm, when I had like 30 minutes of treatment more to go, the light suddenly went off. I thought that we had a power failure or something.

Suddenly, the nurses started to sing the bday song! My bday was last Thursday actually. But the nurse that bought the cake was on leave till today! It was a becreamed and chocolate flake sprinkle concoction! Honestly, the cake was like one third whipped cream!!!!

I was so naughty, I had 3 helpings of the cake!!! It was delicious!!!! I have a great weakness for cream cakes. That's why I don't have it often!!! Otherwise I'll be a lot fatter than I am now!!! As it is, I already have a pouchy tummy! But you just can't have cake for dinner. I felt like a burger later that night, so my Mom treated me to McD's!

I had a big and tasty burger and a large fries; except that I split the fries with my Mom, who also loves fries. I ordered a small coffee for her but they got the order wrong, and my Mom had 12oz coffee instead (the big one). Because I ordered the large McValue meal, I opted for a large orange juice instead of a large coke. I only drank one third of it and gave the rest to my brother, who had just finished his shift! He must have been thirsty because he took like less than 5 minutes to finish the entire cup (or rather 2 thirds of a cup!).

I brought the remains of the cake home yesterday but since my brother didn't want it, I finished it this afternoon. I had a very good sleep! I woke up around 2pm today!!!! I'm usually extra tired on a Friday, being the 3rd and last treatment of the week and all!

It was such a nice surprise!!! I thought they had forgotten my bday but they didn't!!!! It's so nice to be thought of!!!!

My Treat! or Rather, Treats!!!

Thursday, October 31, 2013

I spent the day at the mall today and spent a little more than a hundred ringgit. Actually, I spent a little more than RM120, that's about USD40. I bought some moisturizer for RM24.50, 2 pairs of low rise panties for RM39, a pair of lovely earrings for RM32.40 (10% off for members, thank God I remembered my member card!), and RM19.80 for 230 grams of Famous Amos Chocolate Chip Pecan Cookies!

I only got the cookies because the salesgirl was so nice to me! She let me try 3 variants without charge. In other words, she gave me 3 cookies on the house! I felt bad not buying anything. As 100 grams was not enough if I wanted to share them with my family, I decided to buy 200 grams, and I even got an extra 30 grams just because it was a Thursday. Apparently, they were having an anniversary promotion! An extra 50 grams on Tuesdays or an extra 30 grams on Thursdays if you buy at least 200 grams!

Imagine, it's not like I bought a truckload of stuff! I mean, I only bought like 4 items and I spent more than RM120! Even if you went grocery shopping here, you can easily spend more than RM200! I shudder to think about parents with little children! No wonder there are so many double income families! You just can't survive on one income in this case!

    Glad you had a fun shopping day. Free cookies, WOW!
You're right, prices are rising a lot. I'[ve really noticed it these past few months too.

I'm glad you had a good day!

A Treat on a Rainy Day!!!

Sunday, October 27, 2013

I was bored out of my skull today. I couldn't really go for my usual walk because it was raining, it had been raining for hours and looked like it will be raining for hours more. I figured that the dessert stand near my house would be quiet because most Malaysians don't like going out in the rain. AND I had a craving for a waffle with banana, vanilla ice-cream and butterscotch sauce! I don't get this craving often but today, it came on so strong and just couldn't be ignored.

So I dug out some spare cash that I have and took an umbrella and walked to the dessert stand. When I got there, there was only one other customer other than me. Even the cafe next door was quiet. I ordered my waffle and requested extra butterscotch sauce. He even gave me extra slice banana! Yummmmm! Yummmmm! My Mom cooked rice vermicilli today. I'm not overly fond of such dishes. So I ate a small bowl then went for my waffle! It certainly hit the spot!

Yesterday, I did 40 minute of Pilates. Right now, I'm still feeling the DOMS! I will have to do a DVD workout either tomorrow morning or on Tuesday evening, if I can't wake up early tomorrow!

Have you been getting strong cravings for anything?

    I'm thinking of adding Pilates to my rotation, how do you find it works out for you? I don't really get cravings for any food minus chocolate when its that time. I think it may have something to do with being pretty much vegan though. Happy Sunday~

Enjoyed my bday recently!

Saturday, October 26, 2013

My Dad gave me some cash for a present. That was the best part. I haven't spent it yet though. Waiting for something worthwhile. It's not often I get so much cash for a gift and I don't want to waste it!

I saw this pair of delicate looking earrings though. Imported from Korea. But it's costume-jewellery and I can't justify spend almost RM40 for costume jewellery! But it IS pretty and I'm still considering it! I'm planning to save more money so I can buy something worthwhile as a treat.

It would be so easy to fritter it away with meaningless purchases and then regretting it later! My Mom used her coupons to buy some pizza, sardine and curry puffs to treat the 12 nurses and 1 admin person at the dialysis center! I hope everyone got a fair share but it's a little beyond my control. I just pray that everyone had enough!

One of the nurses gave me a pair of earrings. It's simple and cute and I really appreciate it! I wish I had more presents though. But I guess I can't expect it! My Mom took me out to lunch on the actual day. I had ceaser salad with smoked salmon, banana and peach crumble with vanilla ice-cream and a mango cobbler that tasted more like tea!

On the eve of my bday, my Dad took me out to dinner. We had rice with salted egg shrimp, assam fish, yam basket, fried tofu and mixed veggies! My cousins and uncle who live in the next street joined us. We decided to have dinner the day before bcoz it was my brother's day off. My Aunt (my uncle's wife) couldn't join us bcoz she was overseas on holiday with her friends.

All in all, it was a nice bday but now I'm looking forward to Christmas! I hope I get more cash!

P/S : sorry I didn't take any pics of my food! I was too hungry to eat!

New Haircut

Tuesday, October 22, 2013

So, what do you think? I know it's not a very good picture but I took it myself standing in front of a mirror. Best I can do. Too embarrassed to ask my Dad to take a pic of me. Lol!

You can't really see the layers but I have what they call graduated layers from my chin to a little below the shoulder. I'm very happy with the cut. I could have taken a pic tomorrow but the blow curl can't be seen after I've spent the night sleeping, so, I took a pic of myself today while the blow curl can still be seen.

I might take another pic tomorrow to show you how I look most days, as I'm too lazy to keep blow drying my hair!

    Great new hairstyles can make us feel so much better. I just cut my hair last week it needed it. I was afraid to do it for a while because I had to find a new stylist and she did a wonderful job so it worked out nicely. emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon
