Then I walked to the bank to deposit some money. The bank is next to a hotel. I was just walking around when I stumbled on the garden. I took a few pics! The plants are typical of a Malaysian garden. <BR> <BR> Thought I'd share. Since you want to see more of Malaysian stuff! <BR> <BR> <img src="http://photosaws.sparkpeople.com/guid/6abbcaac-6c09-401a-aef6-a75c2ae31e0d.jpg"> <BR> <BR> <img src="http://photosaws.sparkpeople.com/guid/eefb7bcb-4bdf... Fri, 30 Jun 2017 08:37:59 EST The Mummy : A review! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6380721 No, this is not the Brandon Frasier one but this was released this year staring Tom Cruise! <BR> <BR> Overall, this movie was a non-stop rip-roaring ride full of action. I love the storyline too! I don't understand why this movie got such bad reviews in the US. I think it's a great movie! <BR> <BR> Very well done! Wed, 28 Jun 2017 08:13:48 EST Enough inaction! It's high time for action!!! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6380285 I will lose the weight this time, and I won't look back. This healthy lifestyle is for life! <BR> <BR> I will only allow myself a small portion of a treat only once a month at most, so I won't feel deprived, a small portion only like a half cup! I will measure using my Mom's baking cups. <BR> <BR> On a daily basis, I will eat low sodium, so no more fast food. If I want any fast food, I will look up the nutrition info first, if it's too high in sodium, then I won't eat it! <BR> <BR> As for ... Tue, 27 Jun 2017 08:30:43 EST Left alone to carry on! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6376171 My boss brought me to her home to continue with the work. The entire family has gone out for dinner but I am left alone here to continue with the data entry! <BR> <BR> However, my boss did get me some rice with mixed veggies for dinner. Her Dad actually suggested that I join them in the Korean restaurant for dinner. But my boss said I need to get the work done. <BR> <BR> I'm just taking a minute to post this then I'm going back to work. Sigh! <BR> <BR> I sure wish I could have joined them... Sat, 17 Jun 2017 06:35:54 EST In it for the long haul! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6374094 I was overweight again today. It's a Monday. I am usually heavier on a Monday because of the weekend. I owed the dialysis machine 1kg today. Which meant I went home weighing 62.5kg. My dry weight is 61.5kg atm. Now after 2 meals (lunch and dinner), I now weight 63.3kg. I have to make sure I control my portions tmrw. <BR> <BR> I will do it, bit by bit. I will strive to eat healthier and exercise regularly. I have to keep trying. I won't obsess with my weight, I will strive to build more musc... Mon, 12 Jun 2017 09:02:15 EST I feel betrayed by my own body! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6371128 After I tried my best to control my fluid intake this weekend, I only put on 3.5kg. Therefore I set the target at 4kg to give allowance for the saline given to clear the bloodlines. <BR> <BR> However, towards the last 15 mins, I started feeling sick bcoz my blood pressure was dangerously low. The nurses proceeded to pump saline into me to bring my bp up! <BR> <BR> As a result, I now owe the machine 600g! Not because I was excessively heavy but becoz of all that extra saline! I feel v upset... Mon, 5 Jun 2017 10:10:11 EST Soooooo Mad!!! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6368524 I rushed home from work without even going home to bathe only to be told by the maid working in the host's house that today there was no Bible Study! <BR> <BR> But there was! I was certain of it! Our church is taking a 3 week break from Bible Study because of the school holidays but our group agreed to 1 extra lesson which was today! <BR> <BR> My Mom had to make a big detour after picking me up from the train station to get me there on time! Only to be turned away by the maid! <BR> <BR> I ... Tue, 30 May 2017 10:57:07 EST My Resolve!!!! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6367921 I have made up my mind to really watch what I eat and drink. This is because I'm on dialysis and everything I drink gets stuck in my body until the next treatment! <BR> <BR> I don't want any complications to my health, therefore I am resolving to really watch everything I eat and drink! Food has weight too! Mon, 29 May 2017 00:26:16 EST My plan for today! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6363791 I already had a kaya sandwich for breakfast but I was tempted to get 2 curry puffs at the dialysis center. A nurse walked to a nearby stall to buy breakfasts for the other nurses and some of the patients. <BR> <BR> Then I had to wait about an hour for my Mom to come pick me up after dialysis. She sent me a message on my mobile asking me if I would like pizza for lunch. She will buy it from a pizza stall that sells pizza by the slice. I ate 2 slices. The 3rd slice is for my Dad's tea. I suppo... Fri, 19 May 2017 01:59:27 EST Say hello to my 4 new friends!!!! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6362538 <img src="http://photosaws.sparkpeople.com/guid/421e7d90-8710-4597-8dd2-d0e30dadda9a.jpg"> <BR> <BR> The ones in the square box! And they cost so little too! I got the cheaper varieties of airplants (Thillandsia, I believe they are called). I also got some fertilizer for them too! Now I have 5 new friends! (the one on the chair is the one I bought earlier from a shop). <BR> <BR> The first one I bought cost a lot as it's from a shop, the latest 4 I bought online for bargain prices!!!! I'm s... Tue, 16 May 2017 05:21:00 EST Rats! Foiled again! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6362137 I fully intended on working out today. But I spent the afternoon watching youtube videos and I spent the entire evening napping! I was just sooo tired! I had not 1 but 2 naps! By the time I woke up it was too late to exercise because I have to get ready for bed as I have to wake up early tomorrow for work. <BR> <BR> Well, it's only Monday. I still have the rest of the week to meet my exercise target! Mon, 15 May 2017 08:26:07 EST Relaxing Stroll!!! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6361697 I did a dance workout yesterday but I felt lazy to sweat and workout today. I have achieved my workout target for this week. So, I felt like taking it easy today. <BR> <BR> So, I put on my slippers and went for a short walk. I came home just as it was dusk, I figured I had like a 20 minute walk, well, more like stroll! I even took some pics of the neighbors flowers and deers antlers ferns! <BR> <img src="http://photosaws.sparkpeople.com/guid/3afefee4-7022-48fc-a1c9-b6645f9dc199.jpg"> ... Sun, 14 May 2017 08:07:09 EST Joined the Church Worship Team again!! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6360095 When I started my part time job as an Admin Asst., I worked every Thursday and Saturday. However, now I work Tuesdays and Thursdays, and some Saturdays. <BR> <BR> In the beginning, I quit the worship team because I felt I couldn't cope but I have now rejoined because I discussed the situation with the person in charge and he assigned me the 4th weekend of every month. Just one Sunday per month. <BR> <BR> I feel that God really has a sense of humor because the 4th Sunday of every month is al... Wed, 10 May 2017 09:29:23 EST Is the scale lying to me? http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6359193 I have been watching my portions and exercising regularly. I also include Pilates and body weight exercises as well as using canned goods for light weights for ST. However, my weight has been steadily going up. <BR> <BR> And yet ppl have commented that I look smaller and tighter. Am I gaining muscle and losing fat? My clothes seem to fit better now. But I wish the scale would show a lighter weight! <BR> <BR> I am trying so hard yet I keep gaining. Most of my clothes still fit though. Excep... Mon, 8 May 2017 08:06:01 EST Did a Tough Pilates Workout Today!!! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6357956 So proud of myself!!! It was 45 mins long. I was about to give up 20 minutes in! But I persevered and completed the entire workout. I could only do like 80% of the reps but this workout was tough! <BR> <BR> It's from Popsugar Fitness and it is called Cardio Pilates. Mixing cardio intervals with Pilates moves. I had dinner early, pizza from a new pizza place I haven't tried. A bit high in sodium though! But I stuck to ice cubes, I made sure I didn't take too much water. I really have to watch... Fri, 5 May 2017 09:18:45 EST When it's not all abt me...... http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6356053 I wanted to walk more as the weather after the rain was nice and cool but I could tell my Dad was getting hungry. My Mom is in Singapore atm. <BR> <BR> So, I cut short my walk and prepared tuna sandwiches. I used up a whole large loaf of bread plus 2 slices from an old loaf, 2 cans of tuna, a large onion, 2 stalks of celery and 4 tablespoons of mayo with lots of pepper. I used butter to spread on one side of the bread too! <BR> <BR> So, we now have enough for 3 meals! I wanted to take a bu... Mon, 1 May 2017 09:54:00 EST A Simple Solution to a Tricky Problem! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6354697 My Mom only bought one packet of Cantonese style noodles. She also bought one packet of fried kuey teow. The Cantonese style noodles were for my lunch. But I wasn't hungry at that time because I already had some instant curry noodles for lunch as soon as I finished dialysis. <BR> <BR> After my walk, I wanted to reheat the noodles for myself. My Mom suggested I let my Dad have the noodles and I take the kuey teow but I was already looking forward to having the noodles. When I had a good look ... Fri, 28 Apr 2017 08:48:50 EST How inconvenient!!!! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6353616 I have a savings account with some money but unfortunately, there is no atm machine at the new mall I went to! No shop even has machines to accept payment via debit cards! <BR> <BR> I was soooo upset, I really wanted to buy some plants but I didn't have enough cash on me because I spent most of it on my new watch strap!!!! Sigh! Wed, 26 Apr 2017 05:37:35 EST Very concerned and worried!!! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6351387 I know I said good news, my eprex has decreased, but today, it's a Friday and I owe the dialysis machine 700g! That's almost 1kg! And it's a weekend! I know I shouldn't say it but I feel doomed! <BR> <BR> My boss just rang me up and lectured me about being more positive but how can I be more positive when my blood pressure keeps dropping at the end of my dialysis treatments! I was supposed to extract everything out today before the weekend but now my plans are short!!!! <BR> <BR> I was sup... Fri, 21 Apr 2017 04:32:51 EST Great News!!!! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6350897 I am sooo Happy!!!!! <BR> <BR> My Eprex injections has been decreased by 2 jabs a week!!! Which means I only require 4 jabs a week, not 6 anymore! This means a savings of at least RM200 a month!!! <BR> <BR> I have been taking my Iberet Folic religiously, that's why my bloodwork has tremendously improved!!! My cholesterol and trigliceride levels are excellent too!!! This means I have been eating healthier!!! I have stopped Mcd's cold turkey!!! No more pizza too!!! <BR> <BR> For those who d... Thu, 20 Apr 2017 01:05:10 EST Didn't manage to exercise today! So upset! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6347401 I was totally planning on exercising today but I took an afternoon nap that stretched on till 8pm. Now I have to shower and get ready for bed because I need to wake up at 5:30am tomorrow morning to get ready for work! <BR> <BR> I have been very tired of late because I have to wake up at 5:30am 5 days a week! I suppose I really needed the sleep but what a long nap! So disappointed in myself! <BR> <BR> I owed the dialysis machine 600g today! No improvement from Monday! I am so depressed! I t...

It is a good movie!!! Surprisingly, Emma Watson was good and really shone in the movie! <BR> <BR> I really, really wanted popcorn but I hesitated in getting any because it was sooo pricey! What!!!? RM10 for a small popcorn, I yelped! <BR> <BR> Then after the movie, I really, really wanted some cheese puffs from Marks and Spencers but again I refrained. <BR> <BR> Today, after I got back from work, I really wanted those cheese puffs again, but... Tue, 11 Apr 2017 10:09:40 EST Still recovering from a small flu! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6344004 I have a stuffy nose. I am hesitant to start exercising again before I fully recover. If I exercise now before I've truly recovered, I will get a full blown fever! I have been trying to clear my sinuses by blowing hard and now I have a bloody nose too! Sigh! Wed, 5 Apr 2017 05:59:04 EST Small lunch!!! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6339497 I just finished dialysis. But I am feeling terrible! I am having an anxiety attack. My Mom brought me to the mall, she brought along my handbag because I wanted to do some grocery shopping before she leaves to visit my Aunt in Singapore. <BR> <BR> I was so out of sorts that I forgot to take my handbag but left it in the car. My Mom didn't even tell me. She was concentrating on getting the shopping done and taking me home because she knows that I'm just not in the mood to shop. <BR> <BR> We ... Mon, 27 Mar 2017 02:56:56 EST Helping the Elderly! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6337309 Me and my family went out for dinner. We had to fill up an order form. My Mom found it difficult to read the fine print so I offered to do it for her. I just asked for which items and how many. I quickly got it done. <BR> <BR> However they mixed up our orders with another table. Good thing my Mom was observant. Anyways we waited a few minutes and our orders came and it was delicious. <BR> <BR> Veggies & beancurd stuffed with fish paste. It is called Yong Taufu! <BR> <BR> I also help the el... Wed, 22 Mar 2017 10:24:26 EST A Change of Pace! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6335672 I have been doing cardio for 2 days in a row now, I did a 45 minute high impact dance on Friday, walked for about an hour on Saturday, yesterday, I did a 20 minute body weight workout. <BR> <BR> Today, I did something new called slow robics. It's actually low impact aerobics but at a low impact and slower pace. I thought it looked easy, but I still sweated, which means it's no pushover! <BR> <BR> I downloaded some more workouts today! Can't wait to try them! Mon, 20 Mar 2017 08:59:00 EST I know I've said this before, but this time I'm REALLY serious!!! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6335143 OK! No more extra 'just this once' of YOLO (You Only Live Once) meals! I shouldn't have had that slice of cheesecake and that extra tea today! I already had a drink! The chicken meal I don't regret because I needed to have my dinner anyway, but the cheesecake and hot green jasmine tea was just extra which wasn't needed! <BR> <BR> I am determined to reach my dry weight of 61kg by Wednesday this week! And no such nonsense as owing the dialysis machine on Friday! <BR> <BR> This time I'm WILL d... Sun, 19 Mar 2017 08:07:02 EST So proud of myself!!!! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6334267 This week I didn't do so well in the exercise dept! So, today I told myself I have to do a full 45 minute dance workout! <BR> <BR> I was procrastinating as usual but come 6:30pm, I told myself : just do it! or you'll miss another day again! So, I just turned on the vid and did it! <BR> <BR> <link>www.youtube.com/watch?v=GOsucbWyTvs&<BR>t=102s </link> <BR> <BR> You can check it out if you want! <BR> <BR> I was actually ready to give up at the 20 minute mark but I made myself go through... Fri, 17 Mar 2017 09:46:49 EST I can hardly believe myself!!!! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6331182 I was dead tired after dialysis on Friday night. I was on my tab around 10pm but ended up falling asleep almost at once! I woke up around 2am and then kept away my tab and went to bed proper only to get up around 4pm on Saturday! <BR> <BR> I mean, I knew I was tired but I didn't expect myself to be this tired!!! I'm normally up by noon when I'm not working or on dialysis. <BR> <BR> I guess this means no more late night surfing! <BR> <BR> I did some cardio Pilates today! Got my sweat on! <... Sat, 11 Mar 2017 07:40:06 EST A day off as a mark of respect! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6329187 An elderly church member has just left for Heaven on Monday morning. So, as a mark of respect, there is no Bible Study this week. I went for a mani and spent some time chatting with my manicurist who is also a friend. <BR> <BR> Her Dad may have to start dialysis soon so she had a lot of questions for me. I have been on dialysis 12+ years, so she considers me an old timer. <BR> <BR> I felt so tired this afternoon after lunch and my mani. I layed down but later I made myself do a 20 minute bo... Tue, 7 Mar 2017 09:56:11 EST I have to do this!!! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6328488 I have to keep to my fluid restrictions strictly! 500mls a day means 500mls a day! No extras! I went home from dialysis today with a debt of 1.4kg! That's terrible!!! <BR> <BR> Someone else just died last night! Because according the the nurses, she keeps owing 2 or 3kgs each time. They warned me I could be next! <BR> <BR> I really need to be strict with myself! Hopefully, I will pay back what I owe in fluids this Wednesday and not put on so much this weekend. <BR> <BR> If I can die fast, ... Mon, 6 Mar 2017 03:00:16 EST I wish I could just die! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6324154 Why must I get SLE? Why must I get sick? Why must my kidneys fail and I have to have dialysis for the rest of my life? Why can't I just get fat but not sick? <BR> <BR> I am sick of this life! I feel my life is pointless! I am just a burden to my parents! I wish I had the courage to commit suicide but I am afraid of pain and death! <BR> <BR> I prayed and prayed to God to heal me but He didn't and I was handed this sorry fate! If God won't heal me then I don't want to go on! Thu, 2 Mar 2017 21:19:14 EST Feeling awful and full of regret! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6323330 The water pump broke down during the 3rd hour of dialysis on Monday. So they ended everyone's treatment at 10am. However, the plumber came and fixed the problem around 11am. <BR> <BR> I was meeting a friend for a movie but our appt was for 3pm as we were catching the 4pm show. I could have waited for the plumber to fix the problem and continued with the final hour but I didn't. <BR> <BR> I feel so foolish, and full of regret for not waiting. But by the time the plumber arrived, my Mom was... Wed, 1 Mar 2017 09:51:44 EST A State of Emergency!!! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6322042 I overindulged on Saturday, therefore I am extra heavy today! To make matters even worse, the dialysis center experienced a water shortage today! They have called the plumber but the long and the short of it is : I only got 3 hours dialysis instead of the usual 4! <BR> <BR> At worst, I normally owe 1kg on Monday. But today! I owe 2kg!!!! <BR> <BR> This is an all time high! Which means I will have to really cut down these 2 days (Monday and Tuesday). Hopefully, with extreme caution and cont... Sun, 26 Feb 2017 23:36:04 EST My legs felt wobbly today! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6320747 I don't if it's bcoz of low blood pressure but my legs felt wobbly today. I walked a lot at the mall and I have been active and exercising this week. I hope this makes sense. My arms and legs just feel heavy and when I stand up, I need to hang on to something for balance, take a few steps, then I stabilize myself. <BR> <BR> I felt tired out when I got back from the mall but I did a 30 minute Pilates workout anyway. Now my legs feel wobbly again! Sigh! Fri, 24 Feb 2017 08:36:53 EST A nice feeling! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6319729 I treated my family (parents & brother) to a nice dinner tonight. Satay, rice with fried fish fillets, noodles and drinks! <BR> <BR> It's a nice feeling to be the one paying for a change. This is made possible by my part time job! I am so thankful to my friend for hiring me! Wed, 22 Feb 2017 08:46:04 EST Soooooooo Discouraged!!! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6318522 I hit an all time high with my weight today! Ever since I started my new job, I have been tipping the scales more! Today I weighed in at 65.6kg! That's terrible! I should have kept it below 64kg! <BR> <BR> It's just that being out of the house working increases my thirst! Also, I should have been more mindful of my fluid intake! <BR> <BR> For those of you who don't know, the reason fluid intake is a huge deal with me is bcoz I am on dialysis! I also have to be more mindfull of my meals and... Sun, 19 Feb 2017 20:58:27 EST Tiring myself out with paper plates!!! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6317291 I did a popsugar workout with paper plates and man! my abs and arms are REALLY feeling it! <BR> <BR> Go to youtube and search for popsugar 30 minute fat frying bikini workout! <BR> <BR> Check it out if you want! <BR> <BR> <link>www.youtube.com/watch?v=-2ziPcnlndQ&<BR>t=48s </link> Fri, 17 Feb 2017 06:22:09 EST What a Letdown!!!! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6316797 You know those famous Korean Spicy noodles I was dying to try that was supposed to be sooo delicious? Well, I bought a small serving yesterday, I couldn't wait to try it. I immediately went and made them but they weren't that delicious at all! <BR> <BR> I was sooo disappointed! True, they were spicy but not as tasty and delicious as I expected it to be! For so much sodium, it didn't even have that much flavor! Sigh! <BR> <BR> I wanted to wait till the following morning to try it for breakfa... Thu, 16 Feb 2017 03:27:47 EST My Plan!!!!!! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6313759 I want to lose 25lbs in total. I will give myself 2 years to do this! Starting from today. <BR> <BR> So my BMR is : about 1,313 kCal X 1.375 for being moderately active (Exercising about 3 times a week) = 1,805 kCal <BR> <BR> so 25lbs = 87,500 kCal in 2 years = gives me a deficit of 521 kCal a week <BR> <BR> which gives me 1,805 - 521 = 1,284 kCal a day (what I can eat) <BR> <BR> I can eat slightly more if I'm exercising that particular day but I have to make sure I have deficit of 521 kC... Fri, 10 Feb 2017 02:06:06 EST Just one more round!!!! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6313314 I spent the entire morning and most of the afternoon at an Inductive Bible Study course held in church! By the time I came home it was after 4pm. Plus my friend who sent me home made a detour because she went to the wrong lane. But it was only a few minutes. I have to remind myself to be thankful for friends like her who are willing to send me home! <BR> <BR> Well, the weather was nice around 7.30pm, by the time I woke up from my nap. So I just put on some comfy slippers, because I was just ... Thu, 9 Feb 2017 08:55:58 EST I have to rest today! My entire body is aching! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6312125 I don't know whether is the double dose of exercise I did on Sunday, or that long walk on Monday (yesterday) or both but today is Tuesday and I feel that I must rest today! My entire body is aching! I feel I can't dance today! (which was what I was planning : a dance workout). <BR> <BR> I will probably do a dance workout tomorrow on Wednesday. Or maybe some Pilates. It depends! But right now, it seems that I am aching all over! Tue, 7 Feb 2017 05:56:57 EST Double Exercise Today!!! Feels soooo Good!!! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6311073 First, I did a 35 minute dance workout! I was really sweating! Then I decided to do a 30 minute Pilates routine! So, first cardio, then Pilates! Then I ate my dinner, prawn noodles, then I had a relaxing cold shower! Feels sooooo good! Sun, 5 Feb 2017 08:17:52 EST Rest Day today! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6310548 I have been exercising everyday from Monday to Friday! I've decided due to yesterday's aching bones to take it easy today! The weather has been very hot too! So, I didn't even go for a walk. I spent the entire Saturday afternoon chilling! Sparking, doing crochet (I'm worried I have not enough yarn since the shop that sells it have stopped selling it) and reading. <BR> <BR> Time sure flies when you're having fun! Sigh! I will have to wake up at 9am tomorrow morning to go to church! It's Frien... Sat, 4 Feb 2017 07:19:54 EST Oh! My aching bones!!! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6310078 I've been exercising everyday this week. It's Friday today, so it's been 5 days. But on Saturday, I must take a break! I got in more than 6,000 steps today, burned about 231kCal according to my activity tracker. <BR> <BR> I've been meaning to take a rest day since Wednesday but I kept pushing myself to exercise. Well, I HAVE to take a break tomorrow because my whole body is aching now, esp my upper body!!! Sigh! Fri, 3 Feb 2017 08:38:18 EST Forced Rest! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6308848 I really wanted to exercise today but they (government workers) are fogging the neighborhood again! This is to prevent mosquitoes breeding! They carry dengue fever, among other things. Fogging is pretty common in Malaysia but I still wish they had given us advance notice. <BR> <BR> The weather was nice today, I was walking when I saw the fogging some distance away! I have closed the front door. I suppose today would be a good day for a rest day because I don't want to breathe in too much of...

Thu, 26 Jan 2017 21:34:53 EST Off to Bed Early Tonight! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6305477 I have to reach the dialysis center at 5:30am tomorrow morning. It's Chinese New Year Eve and we are all required to be early. This is to enable the 3rd shift patients to enjoy their CNY reunion dinners. I am in the 1st shift. If we are late, the other shifts will be late too! <BR> <BR> It's not even 9pm yet but I'm going to bed! I will let you know how the festivities went! I just came back from the night market and I bought 2 punnets of strawberries for RM10, which means RM5 per punnet. So... Thu, 26 Jan 2017 07:50:18 EST Very upset over wet laundry! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6304803 My Mom washed a huge load of family laundry; pushed it out into the sun and neglected to tell me. By the time she did, it has already been in the rain for some time. So, the entire load got wet again! <BR> <BR> If she had told me to keep an eye on them, I would have! She only remembered when she heard thunder, but by then it was already too late! The laundry got all wet again! <BR> <BR> Sigh! I need to do mine too, now there is no room to hang mine! I will have to wait another day! I'm so...

I was waiting for a courier to deliver a parcel that I ordered for my Mom's friend. She has already paid me. I was waiting for 5 days and called them numerous times! They keep saying they'll deliver by today but I waited for a total of 5 days and each day they failed to deliver! <BR> <BR> Well, they finally delivered today and I'm sooo relieved! <BR> <BR> Anyways, my Mom came back during lunchtime after sending my broth...
