I felt like I needed thousand years of hibernate in dark cave! <BR> <BR> However, maybe it was fate's intervention mixed with my lack of discipline that I kept pushing back time to dive ...

I'm just so excited, I dunno why, maybe I should feel afraid because of I'm still single, uncertain work status (being a 3rd party contractor always left me feel unbalance, haha) and the only great accomplishment that I have so far is still looking almost half of my real age - most people guessed my age from 19 to early 20s! <BR> <BR> Anyhow, to mark th...

Then I stopped for a while to see if I can "survive" and mix in with my TOM, I suddenly plunged down so fast! Had lots of stresses and pressure, felt lacking of rest and felt so sleepy (before, with my Task & Target list, I think I had some progress of fixing my "Too Tired, Too Sleepy" condition).

And as I always have my "vacation" during Ramadhan which prohibit me from fasting, that means I will have to payback after this Ramadhan and before next Ramadhan. <BR> <BR> I also want to renew my goals for my R1 preparation (an exam in our department) as I was lacking so much before this.

Mon, 31 Dec 2012 23:50:57 EST 1st Quarter 2013 Plan http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5181608 My plan for 1st Quarter 2013 - January to March: <BR> - Start Qiamullail <BR> - Track food, especially snacks <BR> - Follow workout plans <BR> - Reward sleep points when sleep before 23:00 (to get something nice!) <BR> - Save MYR 5 daily for my Tram Fund by end of 1st quarter 2013 :D <BR> <BR> I haven't done any Qiamullail lately (wake up early in the morning, before Subuh prayers, to do some Sunat prayers such as Tahajjud, Taubat, Hajat & Witr). So, I want to start my new year with my fi... Mon, 31 Dec 2012 00:18:31 EST 2013 Plan & Goals! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5179722 I have learned a lot in 2012, there are things that I need to change if I want to be more closer to my major goal - GET STRONGER! <BR> <BR> Which means no more feeling so tired as I'm just 29 (my parents who are 30 years older are feeling much more stronger than me, so embarrassing!), no more easily breakdown in tears (I'm easily get affected by very emotional things that I know I can't control but still can't help the tears) and most of all, I want to be more in control of myself (not letti... Sat, 29 Dec 2012 10:51:55 EST HELP! I Need Stronger Restrains! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5177378 I just saw two pretty bracelets, yesterday and today, from a shopping website. All those dazzling pieces, sparkling jewelries, reeling me closer and closer to buy them! <BR> <BR> I'm not usually wear jewelry other than what I always wear 24-hrs (bracelet, necklace and earrings, thanks to my late grandma, long stories for each items, hehe) but once a while, I'm always get attracted to get some and later on, I mostly don't wear them much, uhuh. Such as this tiny black leather bracelet with a t...

Sometimes I think my moods are on roller-coaster ride, even I myself can't predict, haha. <BR> <BR> Tried to sleep earlier than 23:00 but somehow kept tossing in the bed, maybe I felt too restless? <BR> <BR> The major attraction for food was chicken rice! What I love about mom's recipe is we can eat lots and lots of salad with the chicken rice, yay! And the chicken itself is much more delicious than the restaurants :D Didn't get my daily 3L though, s... Sun, 23 Dec 2012 03:05:56 EST Dec 2012 Streaks - Day #21 http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5173557 I cried myself to sleep last night. Maybe making myself so exhausted, too, from trying hard to not making noises when I cried, too. And it's all because of I just suddenly struck by a heartache thought - will I ever be lonely till the rest of my life? Perhaps because of my upcoming 29th birthday and I started to have these kind of thoughts and I feel like I'm not making any progress with getting a romance relationship :( Well, a depressing though that made me slept terribly but today, when I ... Sat, 22 Dec 2012 09:20:05 EST Dec 2012 Streaks - Day #20 http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5172543 I slept earlier than previous night, before 23:00 yay! I did roll around, switch sides several times, maybe because I used to sleep after 23:00. I need to make this consistent than having it on-off or alternate days. So, after I went for my much needed hair cut, I thought perhaps I can collect money for my monthly hair wash because I just love it when people do great job at washing and blowing dry my hair plus there's head-neck-shoulders massage, good way to destress sore muscles after long ... Fri, 21 Dec 2012 01:09:59 EST Heaven & Hell In A Hair Saloon http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5171857 It was heaven and hell today. <BR> <BR> I went to a hair saloon to get hair wash and cut, which I think I deserved it coz #1, I haven't cut my hair since June, #2 I'm so tired from lots of stress and #3 good hair wash and cut are my guilty pleasure when I feel so bad about myself, when my spirit fall so low. <BR> <BR> And yeah, it was so nice, several times I nearly fall asleep coz of the great treatment. First, a guy with sleeveless t-shirt and long vests (maybe it was sleeveless cardigan?...

And it's all because I couldn't get away from reading manga One Piece, it's keep me on seat for hours to see how the pirates fight off their enemies and save their nakama (friends). Hmm, I need to bribe myself to not overload my nights with reading mangas (sacrifice my good night sleep, uhuh). Coz bribing myself almost work all the time when I want to get away from bad habit or take a new habit :D <BR> ...

Managed to learn more for my exam, discussed with my cubicle mate (he passed both rounds) on questions that I was clueless. <BR> <BR> I think I overate my carbs for the day, especially from 2 and half cups of fried mee hoon! <BR> - Breakfast: 1 glass Anlene chocolate, 7 pcs Jacob Weetameal <BR> - Snack 1: 0.25 cup dried anchovies with honey <BR> - Lunch: 2.5 cups fried mee hoon <BR> - Snack 2: 0.25 cup dried anchovies with honey, 1 pc ...

Besides, I've make some conclusions on what usually make me late (to work, wake up, go to sleep, etc etc) - I'm too lazy to push myself, I have very short focus! <BR> <BR> But I still keep track of what I ate because that help me to be more aware of what goes inside of my body instead of mindlessly eating :D <BR> - Breakfast: 1 cup Nestle Fitnesse cereal, 250 ml Dutch Lady low ...

So, what's left was boxes of clothes at the end of my bed - those boxes are overflow with clothes and mysteries and actually, those boxes are m...
