Me-1, The Bulge-0

I have become somewhat obsessed with my little weight loss project. And I think it's good to be a little obsessed about it. Paranoia helps in this first few months of the journey. The last thing I want is to be complacent and thinking, "Oh, I've lost 5 kilos so I deserve reward myself", without having a stopping point at the end. I think I have "rewarded" myself enough now but I really need to get back on track. Some friends have told me to celebrate this achievement but seriously, this is just a mini achievement and you know what they say, winning the battle doesn't guarantee winning the war.

While I am thrilled to be losing the first milestone, I am still paranoid that I may gain back some of the kilos lost throughout this week. Oh food, why must you be my undoing? Yes, I still love food a lot! I don't think I will ever stop loving it. But like one article I read (have been reading quite a few lately), don't call it a diet but instead call it a lifestyle change. This is what I'm doing and this is probably one of the reasons why it seems to be working for me now. I sure hope this will keep working for me. Eep!

Did I mention that I finally got my digital weighing machine? Yep, when my sister Doc was around that was the one thing I asked of her. To get me a GREEN digital weighing machine. :D It's now my most precious and most hated thing in the whole world. I LOVE it when it shows that I have lost some weight but I absolutely LOATHE it when it's otherwise. Scary right? But if I don't get all paranoid, I might let myself go. THERE ARE HEAPS OF CHOCOLATES IN THE FRIDGE NOW!!! All imported from the UK. Sigh...

I also realise that healthy eating is not enough. And I HATE to exercise so thank GOD for the x-trainer. Now whenever I feel bloated or if I have overeaten I would jump on the machine to sweat out the guilt. It's been good so far. I'm up to 30 minutes and sweating buckets. And I enjoy it so that's a plus point which makes me look forward to it too. Anyhow, vanity aside, I need this for my health. *wink*

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…
