10000 Steps

With my new mobile phone, I am now able to keep track of the number of steps that I am taking every day. Ultimately, I want to reach 10000 healthy steps a day although I barely reach 6000 now. It encourages me to walk more often, better than forcing myself to running on the treadmills at gym every day.

Maybe go lunch at a farther place every day or walk up the stairs?

Juicy Corn

I always thought that Cameron Highland is only well known for its roses, strawberries and vegetables. But little did I know (after going there twice before) that they grow excellent corns! The corns are extraordinary larger, very juicy and exceptionally sweet!

I bought 2 corn cups while I was there and enjoyed it very much! So I bought a pack of 4 to share with my housemates. I cooked it yesterday night and not surprisingly, all my housemates love it. They said it was very juicy and sweet!

Although the price is a little higher compare to the normal corn. However I think it is worth the price! So, must buy more on my next trip, whenever it is.

Travelling Around

During lunch just now, we passed by a tour agency. Sharon asked me if she has been on cruise before and I said I have. She was full of envy as she always want to go for one but it was out of her travel budget.


For me, I always want to travel on an RV around the country and stop at parks at night. I think it is a great way of travelling around with your temporary and comfortable home with you.

If only I could afford the time and money!

Fabulous Time For Shopping~

It is my favourite months to go to the shopping mall. Everywhere you can see the Christmas decoration and each year, they try to outdo the year before and other malls.

The festive season is strongest for Christmas compare to other festival although it is not the biggest festival in this country; I wondered why. Maybe people tends to buy more gifts for exchange in this festival even though they are not celebrating it.

And I just love to see the word Sale in almost every single store and it is a good time to get anything at all! Yes, finally it is time to save some pennies while buying gift.

Snacking!

To help me to distress at work, I tend to munch snacks. It helps to make me relax and unwind as I chew away. But apparently it has not been helping with my growing waistlines!


What’s more, sitting at the cubicle for 8 to 10 hours every day doesn’t help to burn the extra calories that I have accumulated through the snacking.


I guess the only easy way out is by using the effective pill.That’s it until I have time to hit the gym and work out during the weekend or holidays.
 

 

Tuesday With Morrie

I finally found someone who owned this book, a colleague of mine and she was so kind to borrow me. I’ve read the a book by Mitch Albom before ‘The Five People You Meet In Heaven~ and it was quite nice, something different.

 

But I personally think that Tuesdays With Morrie was much nicer, a very touching story of an old man; a professor who had ALS disease and his days were numbered. Yet, he spent a day every week, Tuesday, with a beloved ex-student of his; teaching him how to live his life.

 

Yeah, his last thesis of life with this professor who had so much to offer to the world, in a different way that would make the world a better place for everyone. Even though his body was withered and crumpled by the day, his spirit seemed to be stronger and inspiring~

 

It is a true story, so well written, so very meaningful.. A wake up call..

Another Bag?

Bags, bags, bags. One of the things that a woman can’t get enough of. There is always another reason to get another bag for another occasion, or when there is no occasion at all.

 

Or simply because there are new bags design or just because a friend has a new bag!

 

Currently, I am thinking whether I should get another hand bag for work. I already have two, one small bag but could fit in even a small umbrella. And another bigger bag that I could throw every thing inside.

 

The thing is both of them are white in color. I felt that I could do with another bag with different color to match different outfit. Good enough reason?

Visual

 One thing that I am really lousy at are capturing visualization and observing & remembering them, especially in people and cars. And streets as well.


At first sight, everyone would look about the same to me especially if they have almost the same height and build. Same goes to cars. My friend would tell me about the many car make and model and sometimes it is hard for me to differentiate them!

But now I am starting to put on the effort of learning the different make and model and the part names like spoiler, rim, etc. I know they are basic, but I guess it is really lack of interest.


And I shall improve, with time! Or so I hope.

Is it safe to send car to car wash?

Sometimes I wish he will just wash his own car rather than sending to the car wash garage every week. Not only it is a little costly to have them wash by the so-called professional, I felt rather insecure to leave all our personal belongings in the car when they clean up the car. You give the key to them and basically the right to intrude in the car and look at the car compartment, boot and any place else.

I’ve heard many stories where stuffs were stolen, keys were duplicated and privacy was invaded. However his idea of washing his own car is spraying the water on the exterior and wiping it clean. And for the interior, he simply takes out the car mat and hit it on the pavement to let the dust off. And sometimes wiping the dashboard and that’s about all.

My Credit Card

I got my credit card rather late which is during my 3rd job, where the HSBC fellows came to our office so that we can open a bank account to credit our salary. They also promoted on their credit card which I applied for the first time.

Initially after getting my first credit card, I was wary of using it, as I have heard of people fallen into debt trap with credit cards. But after some times, I started to use it frequently until I accumulated a huge amount of debt! I started to freak out when I find that I couldn’t pay off my credit card debt on time and it is being brought forward to the next month.

It went on for about half a year where I started to stop using my credit card and trying to clear off all the debts. And finally, I managed to pay off after another half a year!

Now I am more careful when I am using my credit card and make sure that I pay all my credit card bill within time!
