131 to D-Day!

It's 1st June 2010 and I now have 131 days left before D-day. What is D-day?? Nope, still keeping mum about it for now. Made a promise. But I will reveal it in due course.

So after last Saturday's emo-fest, I decided to be more positive and make the most out of whatever I have accomplished so far. I tell myself, yeah, you didn't lose as much as I wanted to but the main thing is I lost something. And that is better than nothing 10 times more.

I've hijacked my brother's glider exercise machine thingy-ma-jig last Friday night and by GOD, I actually lifted the bloody thing from my car into the house all by myself! But I have to say, it's totally worth the effort. I have strategically placed it in front of the tele with the full intention that I can watch tv AND exercise at the same time. So on Saturday, I hopped on it hoping to do a set of 20 minutes or half hour with Mr. Bean the Animated Series as my company. But, 10 minutes in the session, I was sweating buckets! BEAT! BREATHLESS! DELIRIOUS!!

Clearly, I was out of shape for far too long. Before long, I hopped off and tried to catch my breath. Phew!!

The next morning, I got on it again and this time I paced myself better, doing slower cycles and making sure I was BREATHING, and managed to complete 15 minutes of exercise without losing my mind. Way better than my previous 10 minutes!

Didn't do any last night though since I fasted the whole day and although I am fasting again today, I'm thinking of jumping on that thing if I have the time after break fast. Maybe once I've started doing this regularly AND the healthy eating, I'd be able to reach my goals faster and be toned/fit at the same time. Yayy!

Life After... Pt 1

Call it a wake-up call. Call it an epiphany. Call it therapy. Call it what you will. But as I was wallowing in my sorrows as 1st November 2017 began, and knowing that in 24 days I was going to meet my 34th birthday without my beloved Dad for the very first time, I thought to myself that I need to do this for my own healing.
Yes, I lost my Dad this year. He left to be with Allah at exactly half of this year, on 16th June 2017. When 2017 started I honestly thought it would be a great year. I went on my solo trip, I was on probation for a promotion at work, I was going to the gym, my family was in good health, everyone was happy. It was a great start of the year.
Then like the 2004 Tsunami, my whole world and life unexpectedly came tumbling upside down and inside out. All of a sudden my family had crises. *Note the plural form of the word "crisis"* And it started on a rather fine day on 28th April.
I was on edge that day as I did my colleague's wedding makeup. Part of me screa…

The Time I was Flying Blue with KLM

About two months ago I came back from a magnificent travel experience to the UK and Paris. I fully intend to write all about it as it was my very first solo trip ever! But this post is not about that per se. I plan to break down the solo trip experience so that it will not be too heavy in one posting. 
Anyway, I just wanted to share a little bit about my experience travelling for the first time with KLM Royal Dutch Airlines as they were my chosen carrier to take me on this wonderful journey. 
From the get go, I would say it was not exactly all smooth flowing. My own unfamiliarity and inexperience with them probably contributed to the little bumps along the way but thankfully their customer service team is well trained and equipped to help iron out any hurdles or uncertainties that I faced. 
The booking was unique in its own right. The selection of flight dates, times and class was all standard. Then when it came to payment was when I discovered the first uniqueness, or rather the second …

Getting out of Blogging Retirement - Take 2

I've already had some food in my system, and while it's probably on its way to full digestion now, let's try putting in a half decent blog post.

Like I said, after a long, I believe 2-year hiatus from blogging, I had really thought I would let blogging die a natural death and stop just like that. But as things occur in my life, I find myself itching to write again.
Like today. 
First, during lunch time. 
One of my colleagues, let's call her Kay, told us that Hard Rock Cafe has a pretty good lunch set menu. It comes with a salad, main course and dessert, and a refillable drink for the price of a normal main course. So of course we jumped to it. The moment we got to HRC, it was almost a full house! We were lucky not to have to wait in a queue. Those people probably thought to take advantage of the lunch set too. 
Anyway, there were four main courses offered in the lunch set menu; Chicken Marinara, Chicken Pasta, Hamburger and Grilled Fish. I opted for the Chicken Marina…
