Just a fluffy stranger in your heart!

Hello there,

Mama’s off for the night but I shall take over. πŸ™‚

I am mama’s sweetheart (well, aside from that other human living with us). I am a domestic long hair cat and was adopted by mama a little over a year ago from PetSmart.

Mama just got to the States for about two months and she had been lonely and crying almost everyday coz that other human that lives with us works crazy hours. So on this sweet Sunday afternoon, mama wanted to go to a pet shop just to look at dogs and de-stress. Mama was a dog person. I changed her perception towards us cats. Yay me!

So mama and TOH(that other human) went inside and were told only cats are available for adoption from Pet Smart. Reluctantly she went towards the back of the store to just look at cats. Then she saw fuzzy me, relaxing in my cubicle and she started asking TOH to ask Petsmart staff if I was available.

She thought I was pending for adoption (hello, have you not seen me? Oh wait. I shall put some pictures of me later on. Let the suspense kill ya!) and didn’t have high hopes. Then the staff said “He is in fact available! His last potential adoption didn’t come through.” Oh you should have seen her face!! She was thrilled! She asked if I could be let out so she could see if we have chemistry and I was let out. Yay freedom! πŸ™‚

After talking about me with the staff, they left without filling in the forms. They told him they needed to talk about it. :/ I was heartbroken. But, two hours later they came back and sent in their adoption application… FOR ME!!!

It usually takes about a week for adoption process to go through and mama never failed to come and visit me every single day. She said she could not wait to take me home and spoil me! πŸ™‚ *yes, that’s what the ASPCA named me. SMH*

The day finally arrived and mama and TOH had been buying litter box, litter, hair brush, dry food, toys, bed etc for my arrival! I felt so special!! πŸ™‚ And mama had tears in her eyes coz she was so happy she finally has a friend at home. πŸ™‚ You complete me, mama! :*

IMG_4005

These are couple of pictures taken on the first night I got home. πŸ™‚ Yes, I was already so comfortable! Mama doesn’t have any other pets at home so it was easy to get comfortable here. It’s just gonna be me, me and only me. πŸ™‚

Time to go to bed…

IMG_3998

Ooops. It was a tad bit too small for me. I cant evenΒ lay on my back!Β :/ But I still love it and continue to sleep on it for several months until mama finally forced TOH to get me a bigger bed. Thank you mama :*

Look at my new bed now!

IMG_2399

So much bigger and comfortable! πŸ™‚ But I don’t use this bed at night. I like to sometimes just sleep on the floor, sofa, bungalow or sometimes in bed with mama. I only use this bed when I nap in the afternoon. πŸ™‚ Probably coz mama plays music here in the afternoon and at night it is always silence. Me no like. Me like music. Meow!

I sleep just about everywhere guys, everywhere. And I LOVE to lay on my back. It’s so comfy! πŸ™‚

You know cats are always famous with boxes but I never like boxes. Mama got few parcels from her home country and those boxes are big for me but I never like playing with it. Am I weird? But you know what I love? I love the bath tubs! Mama’s bath tub especially! She caught me relaxing in it several times. Teehee.

IMG_4048

IMG_1801

Do you think I am weird? Well, if you’d like to see more of me, you can follow my mama’s blog coz sheΒ usually puts one or two of my pics on it. πŸ™‚ Oh, I have an Instagram too if you’d like to follow me on there. It’s @kittykittybambam

I hope you enjoy reading this post. I am so grateful to have found my mama. She doesn’t know where I came from but she loves me unconditionally. I drove her crazy sometimes (waking her up in the middle of the night, begging for more and more treats, hid while her friends come visitΒ and lots more) but I know she loves me.

She’s always reminded of me whenever she listensΒ  to this song and I am touched.

I love you too mama! Thank you for everything you’ve done for me and although I always pull away when you kiss me, I actually do love you. It’s just what cats do. LOL.

k

And thank you for this plant! I love it, mama!!!

P/S: Just if you’re wondering who TOH was. Here isΒ a picture of me and him.

lol

Paw!

Happy Monday!!

What’s up guys??

It’s Monday and I was feeling like crap this morning but I got up and chose to be a trooper today! πŸ™‚

It’s been so great I got hubs Polo shirts ironed, laundry folded and put away(double YAY!!), got the kitchen cleaned and also cooked for hubs since he decided to come home for lunch with me. πŸ™‚ I am that person that hates eating alone so I think it is very thoughtful of him to come home to have lunch with me whenever he can. Thank you my love! πŸ™‚

So anyways, I have an amazing news to tell. I finally did Freeletics Dione and actually finished it! HOHOHOHO!!! Dione took three attempts for me to take it down but man, that feeling after it went down was incredible! That’s one of the greatest things about fitness- the satisfaction. You don’t have to compete with anyone. Just yourself and I am happy with it!

IMG_1542

That’s my personal best for Dione and I shall try to improve my time. It’s me against me! I’ll list the Dione down below (again) if you’d like to try it yourself. πŸ™‚

Dione:

75 jumping jacks

25 burpees(I hate these!!!)

50 straight leg levers

75 jumping jacks

50 sit ups

25 burpees

Repeat 3 times.

Remember, it took me 3 attempts to get this monster down so don’t feel bad if you give up on your first attempt. It is tough!

photo 1

Hi! That’s me after taking Dione down. LOL. I was exhausted but I slept like a baby that night. πŸ™‚

I wasn’t writing yesterday coz I was spending time with le hubs! πŸ™‚ We spent the morning at home (he got some work to do as well.) and then went to watch The November Man! I liked the movie (probably coz I like spy movies hehe) and there were just 4 of us in the movie theater! And here’s my outfit yesterday!

I hope you like my simple make up and my outfit for movie yesterday. I did feel a little bit like a fashionista LOL. I usually wear something simple but I don’t know what got into me yesterday. πŸ™‚

So anyways, since the gym closed at 7pm yesterday we were rushing to get home to eat, change and hit the gym. We made it on time. Thank God! I hate rushing when I am at the gym. Coz I want my steam room treat dammit! Don’t judge me. Haha! It was definitely chilly yesterday and so happy to be back home again.

So this workout outfits are from:

Headband: Forever 21 (I love this and I plan to buy more!)

Top: Reebok

Pants: Guess Los AngelesΒ (OMG guys! I love these pants! I have two of them and they are the best!)

Socks: Puma (the best socks too! )

Gloves: Harbinger (I love them too!! I have another set of gloves but I usually wear these)

When we got home, hubs requested for ayam rendAng (it kept correcting the word to rending, hence the capital A) for his lunches tomorrow so I made him some. Got his brown rice ready too. He’s such a pwincess, isn’t he?? But he’s my baby and he works hard for us so he deserves all the good things I do for him. πŸ™‚

I have TRX at 8pm tonight so I shall get ready and spend some time with le hubs before going. But oh, here’s a picture of le kitty from last night. πŸ™‚

photo

Enjoy the rest your day peeps!

 

Much love.

Of le kitty

What a crazy busy day.

Hubs is taking a nap on the couch now, enjoying his new Monster headphones. And i am listening to Spotify’s 80’s radio channel. I love the 80s so much sometimes it annoys hubs.

Le kitty is just meowing at me, again, asking for another treat. :/ hubs told me i should limit his wet food to one each day. Sigh. It’s hard to say ‘No’ to that fuzzy face! :/

So we started our day at the bank, settling some matters. I believe it’s with the interest & tax. Hmm. We got that out of the way, with an officer helping us with it. He will help mail it on our behalf too. πŸ™‚

Went back home for lunch (i learned my lesson not to do groceries shopping when hungry) then left for Asian Market! I swear Asian Market is like our church. Lol. We usually go there almost every weekend. The Thai lady that runs the store is very friendly and sweet. Sometimes she throws in free stuff for us. Today she gave us Hup Seng’s crackers. Yay. I couldnt be happier. I shall cook her something next time i go to her store. And oh, i bought some frozen durian today too. Yay!!!!!

She would ask me how to cook some stuff with the things i bought from her store. And i would happily tell her. And that woman loves fashion. I always make sure i wear nice clothes to the store just to please her lol. Hey, i wear nice clothes on the weekends coz i usually wear my sports attire on weekdays. Le hubs gotta see me dress up too. πŸ™‚

So anyways, i got an email from Petsmart last night saying they are having big sale event and since i have to get le kitty’s dry food(he eats the one with hairball formula), litter and of course a new laser(this is way long overdue!) we had to go today. Oh boy, hubs actually bought him dispensable water and food stuff. He is one lucky kitty! And oh, i got him his very own cat grass as well. He’s been climbing on my bathroom counter to munch on my fresh flowers and me no likey. (i know it’s weird i keep my fresh flowers in the bathroom instead of my dining area lol). So kitty got a lot of stuff today and we just finished playing laser. He missed it, i can tell. Poor kitty.

IMG_1533.JPG

IMG_1531.JPG

IMG_1532.JPG

So these are the new stuff le kitty got today. I haven’t seen him drink/eat from his new gadget yet. But soon i hope! Hubs said his water dispenser has filter as well. That’s awesome! And we mix le kitty’s food- salmon & chicken. The chicken one has the hairball formula. πŸ™‚ i also read from a cat’s forum that you shouldn’t put cat’s food and water next to each other. I dont know how true this is but i have been separating them since i read about it. Better be safe than sorry. πŸ™‚

IMG_0402.JPG

IMG_0404.JPG

IMG_0419.JPG

IMG_0421.JPG

Here are some pictures of the fuzzy ass. He has this arrogant face but he is really the sweetest. We spoke to the guy that has helped us with the adoption last year too and he told us le kitty is the most calm cat he has ever seen. πŸ™‚ i am so happy we got you, little fuzzy! Mmm lemme see if there are more of his pictures on here.

IMG_1183.JPG

IMG_0529.JPG

IMG_0722.JPG

IMG_0574.JPG

And these are his signature pose! He’ll always be on his back. Even on his first night at home, he was already so comfortable. Whenever we got home from somewhere, he would come to the door to greet us and then he would lay on his back and roll. I thought he was confuse. Coz he acts like a dog instead of a cat. Lol.

IMG_1158.JPG

IMG_1133.JPG

Mommy loves you kitty. I want you to grow old with mommy. πŸ™‚

Much love.

All my sexy ladies, just come out and playyyyyyy!!!

Hello all!

That’s a line from the song I am listening to now. It is also the current ‘introduction’ song each time I start my set. It’s so catchy and I love it. And who doesn’t love Mr. Worldwide- Pitbull?? The song title is Ai Se Eu Te Pego, just in case you’re wondering and let me know if you like it too! πŸ™‚

Anyways, hubs and I ran to Kroger for some groceries shopping last night and we bumped into Thor and Shanell!

There’s this guy from my gym that looks like Thor! Yes, I am lucky! LOL.Β I’ve seen him quite a lot when I was working out at night. I seldom go at night now for various reasons. One, my body will be so fresh and it would be hard for me to sleep at night. Secondly I would be busy prepping next day’s lunches for le hubs. Hubs takes about 4-5 lunches everyday so yea, I am busy at night. πŸ™‚ I could prep it a week early but I hate to have him eat frozen food so I’d make his lunches as fresh as I can. πŸ™‚ Also, he doesn’t like his meals to be prepped early as well. :/ LOL. I made him rendang yesterday btw and he loved it he actually ate half of them even before I got to put them in containers. :O Back to Thor, he just came out from Kroger and said hello to us! Haaahhhh, handsome, tall, muscular and friendly!!! I’m sorry, I don’t know if he is single or not. I would introduce him to you next time I figure that out but please don’t hate me if I drool over your future boyfriend! LOL.

*ehem*

*Hi sweetie!*

Shanell, Shanell, Shanell!!! I love that woman! She was actually the first person I made friends with in Fort Wayne! πŸ˜€ Well, not really, Sara works at Y and she took me to tour the gym and even went to Pilates class with me. But Shanell was actually the very first person I made friends with.

We met in Zumba class and things just hit off from there. When we first met, Shanell was unemployed. She is also diabetic so she asked if I could train her so I did. She worked hard. We even try several classes together including Pilates (she hated it LOL. She said it was for skinny people like me only which is not true!!) and Aqua-robic. LOL. We had so much fun in Aqua-robic though coz both of us are not good swimmers.

I learned a lot about being diabetic from her and several months passed. I was in Poplar Bluff for Christmas and on Christmas Eve, she called me and said she just came back from her doctor’s appointment and told me she didn’t have to go and see her doctor twice a month anymore. Her health has progressed so well! She still needs to get medication but in the lowest dosage and her appointment is now set to once in every four months!

I cried for her coz she has come a long way. Being unemployed for several months, she lost her insurance and was so worried about paying for her doctor’s visits and medication. She is back in the work force now and I am happy for her. We don’t really get to see each other much anymore but we still keep in touch. So yes, I was very happy to bumped into her last night. More than the happiness of bumping into Thor. I love you Miss Shanell!!!!

So last night I was sandwiched between hubs and le kitty. Hubs went to work at 330 am yesterday so he was dead tired. He took a short nap next to me and I went ahead and read my book (I don’t have FB and IG now, remember?). Then this fuzzy guy decided to cuddle with his mommy. πŸ™‚

photo 1

Awe. He’s a domestic long hair cat and I shall make a post on him next time. I just have to compile his many pictures. He’s been with us since September last year. So it’s been a year, little fuzzy ass! I am so glad you are in my life. Mommy loves you!!

So I was kinda hungry last night and it’s true people, never go groceries shopping when you are hungry. I bought me some sushi from the sushi bar, two bags of red grapes and red velvet cake! Arghhh! I have ate my red velvet cake yet and maybe save it for this weekend.

photo 2

I bought the Shrimp Dragon Rolls. I usually would buy the Unagi (Eel) but none were there. Shrimps are good enough. I was actually starving I finished all 10 rolls, gave one to hubs. So 11 rolls for 8.49$ is a great price. I just wish they put more wasabi in the package.

Oh, why only one for hubs? Coz he doesn’t eat a whole lot at night. Especially carbs. πŸ™‚

I had a lazy morning today. How lazy, you asked? I got up to shower at 1230pm. That’s how lazy I was this morning. I watched Jaclyn Hills Youtube videos SMH. But once I showered, I got into full force.

I boiled some rice, and while waiting for it to be ready, I put on my facial mask. Yeehaa! And once lunch was done, I stripped off the bed sheets, pillow covers and changed them to new ones. I usually change the sheet and pillow covers once every two weeks and also the day we travel. I just love to come home to fresh sheets. πŸ™‚

Albeit not so fresh coz kitty loves to play on the new sheets. Haha! He knows when I’m changing the sheets and would jump on the bed, meow at me and wanting to play. I don’t think hubs knows about this but hey, now you know bb!! πŸ˜€ He’s cute, so he gets away with everything. πŸ™‚

I also cleaned my bathroom and put away all the folded clothes. I don’t know why I always delay putting the clothes away. Maybe coz I know I have to arrange them again in the closets. :/ Me no like.

photo 3See how happy I look in this picture? I felt so damn good. Imagine, starting my day being lazy then got a lot of things accomplished! Btw, I just realized I am a make up hoarder. :/ I have 5 new mascaras, 2 air brush foundations. That’s all I know coz I don’t want to be ashamed of myself. Haha. I know I have like 3 BB creams.

Anyways, I tried using the Clean & Clear facial cleanser several months ago but my skin hates it. It irritates my skin so much. I told hubs about it and he told me just throw it away. And well since I just confessed that I’m a hoarder, I kept this in the cabinet. Not wanting to try it again but I shall give this to my friend tonight. Sayang lah!

And while cleaning the apartment, I had this voice in my head saying “You haven’t work out yet, young lady.”

So I changed from my cute playsuit to shorts and sports bra. I rarely wear tanks or shirts anymore when I workout at home coz I knew it was going to be intense. And of course, less laundry for me to do. *pats self*

Routines today are:

Round 1:

30 jumping jacks

20 bicep curls

20 plank then hips to floor

10 push ups

Round 2:

10 squat jumps

15 front shoulder raises

10 sprawl

Round 3:

10 walking lunges with twist

15 side shoulder raises

10 knee tucks with stability ball

Repeat 3 times each round.

Couple of pictures from my sets

photo 4Β Haa look at my squat jump! I usually have a mirror in front of me to check for my forms and sometimes I do video my workouts. LOL. Talk about being vain! This purple Nike was my first Nike shoes and I love them so much. They have gotten lots of compliments too, mind you!Β But I wore it out so I don’t use them outside anymore. I just use them when I workout at home. πŸ™‚ Hoarder alert!!!

photo 5Mission accomplished! Well, I figured I will be going to a bootcamp class tonight that’s why I didn’t do so many sets today. πŸ˜€ I need some energy for tonight’s bootcamp. πŸ™‚

I think I have seen a lot of changes in my body. I am actually quite happy with it. I look better at 60 kg than when I was at 56 kg. πŸ™‚ I don’t have that layers anymore when I sit and my bums are definitely tighter and rounder. LOL. My thighs are looking great as well although I still have a lot of work to do there. :/

But that’s okay. My journey is still long. And fitness is a lifestyle. Not a seasonal thing. πŸ™‚

I hope I inspire you today. I shall go and take another shower and eatΒ before I go to bootcamp tonight.

Have a great weekend, people!

 

Much love.

P/S: I just figured I could align my pictures. Looks better right? LOL.

 

 

 

Care package

That’s right baby! I got care package all the way from Malaysia today from my wonderful mama!

I was so glad I didn’t miss it coz I was going to my car and saw the USPS lady parked next to me, holding the package. I said hi to her and asked if it was for me.

She looked at the box (probably asking herself how to pronounce my name hehe) and asked “Are you *my address*)”.

I squealed and said “That’s me!!!”

It is still hard to believe that the package is already here! She sent it last Monday and it’s already here by noon. Thank you Pos Malaysia! Awesome job! πŸ™‚

photo 1

Happy dance happy dance!!!

Yea, I painted my nails last night while watching The Other Woman. Cameron Diaz made me wanna wear my gold bracelet again but I shall not wear it coz I workout everyday and I don’t want to break it again. Yep, I broke it last time and got it fixed (sauntered). πŸ˜€

Here’s what this box has in it!

photo 2

Yay for all of these! Mom sent me 3 of each products.

From left: soy sauce! (I love Kicap Kipas Udang but the bottle is glass and I don’t want my mum to spend extra on those.) I’ll settle with Kicap Kuda Terbang (DONT LAUGH!!!) made in my own hometown! It’s one of the best too. So, yay!

Next up: Adabi’s Sambal Belacan (original).

Mum sent me three but I gave one to Danielle coz she and her husband love this so much! I usually use this sambal belacan when I grill my tilapia. Grill tilapia on your grill and when it was about to cook, spread some of the sambal belacan on it and you get Ikan Bakar! Yummers!

Last but not least: Liza’s Perencah Hitam!

Aside from ayam masak merah, I also love daging masak hitam and seriously, if you wanna make an authentic one in the States, it’s quite hard coz some of the spices are hard to get here. Thank you so much for the brilliant person that came up with the idea to put this together in a small bottle! I don’t know if you could get this in Peninsular Malaysia coz it’s made in Kuching. I know for a fact that Kicap Kuda Terbang (AGAIN, DONT LAUGH) is not sold there. πŸ™‚

Omg I am so happy. Now I can travel without worrying the parcel arriving when I am gone. I shall write about our upcoming trip once we are back. πŸ™‚

We actually went to Cincinnati, Ohio for Eid (I was crying coz I missed home and it was an impromptu trip). Hubs knew me too well and said “Let’s go to Cincinnati so you can shop at the Outlet Mall and Ikea.” FYI, we don’t have Ikea in Indy. 😦

I didn’t take any pictures from that trip coz it was really a short trip. Sorry guys. But I will definitely write on our next travel ok?

Okay, it’s almost 3pm now. I gotta go take a shower and man, Pilates was great and the steam room……. I love it so much! I notice that my skin has improved so much too. Great savings, I don’t even have to go to the spa and fork out ridiculous amount of money. Yay! I swear, the steam room is the only motivation for me to finish my workout. LOL. That works. I’ll take it. πŸ˜€

I’m gonna stop here and you guys have a splendid day! Weekend is coming soon guys! I am excited!

 

Much love.

 

 

Anniversary Getaway Day Two!

After exploring the Village of Mackinaw City last night, we realized that they have lots of shops selling shirts. Like too much!

We got up at 9 am and lazed around before getting ready for our trip to the Mackinac Island! Since our hotel is just across the pier, we walked to it and got lucky to be able to get on the boat. We were literally the last persons to board the boat! Alhamdulillah. πŸ™‚ The boat trip was 20 mins btw!

And since we didn’t get to have breakfast that morning, we went straight ahead to one of the restaurants there and had brunch. I didn’t finish my burger though so I tapau-ed it so I could eat it again later. Remember I said food in the States is expensive? Yep, I gotta tapau! LOL

IMG_3633

IMG_3635

IMG_3637

IMG_3639

WELCOME TO MACKINAC ISLAND!!

Hubs didn’t expect there’d be a Starbuck on Mackinac Island so he bought himself a cup of coffee from a deli. When he saw the Starbucks logo, he chugged his deli coffee so he could buy his coffee from his most fav place on earth. LOL.

IMG_3640

We purchased tickets for carriage ride but it was fully booked we had to wait for two hours before we got on one. So we went to the park to just relax and unwind.

Oh, I forgot to mention the most important thing about Mackinac Island. No motor vehicles are allowed on here. So everyone is either walking, horse riding and cycling. I loved it. I thought it was brilliant.

IMG_3641

IMG_3643

Look at me jumping!!

IMG_3648 IMG_3650

Our time’s up! So here comes our carriage ride tour! πŸ˜€ It was so much fun. We changed two carriages and it took us about two hours to explore the island. I loved every bit of it. And both our tour guides were brilliantly funny!

IMG_3658

IMG_3659

So the pictures follow would be the pictures taken from our carriage tour. Enjoy!

IMG_3660

Cute post office!

IMG_3661

IMG_3663 IMG_3664

Beautiful little church. When we passed by it the second time, we saw a beautiful bride going in to get married. Oh, she was one lucky woman! We got inΒ to the churchΒ after the session was done and enjoyed the quietness. It was hot inside though. :/

IMG_3667

So after our tour was done, hubs took me to Grand Hotel! It’s an old building but gorgeous! How old? Since 1887!!

You can read more on this historical hotel here: http://www.grandhotel.com/

If you are not the hotel residents, you’d have to pay 10$ per person just to go inside. And after 6pm, ladies are expected to be wearing dresses/skirts (no pants!!) and gentlemen are expected to wear suits. Talk about fufu huh….

We had tea time here and I loved it. Here are the pictures we took at Grand Hotel Mackinac Island.

IMG_3668

Le hubs!!! I love you!!

IMG_3673

My view πŸ™‚

IMG_3674 IMG_3675 IMG_3678

Those are the pictures taken from the verandah. Let’s move to the pictures taken at the terrace!

IMG_3679

IMG_3682

IMG_3690

We had such a great time at Mackinac Island it was so sad to leave. I swear I could live here. Haaahhhh….

I am going to compile the third day here as well since I only have a few pictures from Day 3. Day 3 was the day we left Mackinaw City.

IMG_3701 IMG_3702

We had breakfast on a bench by the road side! πŸ˜€ And we accidentally wore the same color. Hihi. Starbucks in Mackinaw city was slow though so expect a long line when you get there.

I hope you enjoy reading this post as much as I enjoyed my time there. And sorry for the quality of the pictures. All were taken by my iPhone.

Also, take note that when we checked out, hubs told me the room rates went down half the next weekend. Probably because the school was starting. So anyone wants a good deal, make your reservation the first weekend the school starts. πŸ™‚

 

Much love.

Anniversary Getaway Day One

I should have written this a long time ago.

Hubs took a day off(it was Friday so perfect!!) so we could go for our anniversary getaway. We didn’t get to do a lot when we got married last year. We got married in the morning and by noon he was already back at work. They were having an audit and he couldn’t get away.

But he took me to Los Angeles and Las Vegas for our honeymoon so it was fine. Weee! And he took me to The Village of Mackinaw City in Michigan for our anniversary get away!

I cant wait to share with you guys some of the pictures from our trip! Oh yes, my laptop and iPhone are working with each other again. Thank God. I cant imagine emailing every single pics from my phone just for the sake of this blog. Especially entries that need lots of pictures. But all problem is solved now!! *tap dancing all over the room*

So okay, when we travel, we usually bring our own food. When we get to the hotel, we would use the hotel’s fridge and microwave(most hotel rooms have them but some put these amenities in their common room) and just heat our food up when we are hungry. Jimat kos!! Food are expensive in the US (and you have to tip as well) so to cut cost, we would bring our food whenever we travel. I don’t mind it at all coz one, I would prefer Asian food over western food (tekak orang kampong, memang makan nasik huh) and secondly it’s convenient. I get hungry at weird times and when I am hungry I turn into a beast. πŸ™‚ And third, of course, jimat kos kan?

Back to the story, half way through our destination, I asked hubs if he brought my rice with us. He looked terrified and said NO. Took a deep breathe and told myself, it’s gonna be okay coz it would be a short stay. So we didn’t fight over it. See, I am nice! And marriage takes patience. Hmph.

Let see the pictures! And welcome to Michigan!!

The place is gorgeous!!!! I loved it. It sort of reminds me of my hometown, Miri. Woop woop! If you were wondering how my hometown is, just look at these pictures! πŸ˜€

Look at these pictures I took from their Starbucks. Beautiful building, isn’t it?

I hope you like the pictures I took from our first day there. I truly love this place and wouldn’t mind coming back here again. πŸ™‚

 

Much love.

Mundane Wednesday

Hello everyone,

It’s not a productive day for me today. I woke up a little after 9 and went back to bed to cuddle with kitty til almost 11 am. Yep. It happens and this is the kind of morning that I dislike.

Heck, even kitty thought it was time to get up. SMH.

I didn’t even want to make breakfast and when I walked to the kitchen, hubs left me some dirty bowl and utensils from his cooking last night. If you must know, I am a pain in the ass when it comes to my kitchen. I like to keep it spotless and every night before I go to bed, I would make sure everything is cleaned.

So I had to clean the kitchen this morning and started my cooking. I made ayam masak merah for my breakfast/lunch/dinner. LOL. And I had my vege shot this morning as well.

Ayam masak merah yummers!

Talking about vege, my friend told me she has been consuming raw vege for almost a year now. No wonder her skin is so flawless and so awet muda! I wish I could eat raw vege but I just cannot!

My body sucks and it doesn’t take a lot of stuff very well. I cant drink green tea, eat cold vegetables like broccoli, cauliflower, beans and the likes. I get gastric very easily and these food trigger it so quickly. I suck! 😦

So anyways, I was feeling bad I only got to jump in the shower at 130 pm. Yes! I was feeling terrible. But I feel so much better after the shower. I even put on my face mask and worked out. I tried Dione today and sorry to disappoint, I didn’t finish it. 😦

Maybe I should just take today as rest day. But if you are wondering about Dione and wanting to try it, I will share it here.

Here it goes:

Freeletics Dione:

75 jumping jacks

25 burpees

50 straightΒ leg lever

75 jumping jacks

50 sit ups

25 burpees

Repeat 3 times.

I shall attempt Dione again next time. I only did 2 rounds of these and already feeling like shit. LOL.

And that’s me after failing to finish Dione. 😦 But that’s okay. This happens. I will try again next time.

Have a good one today, peeps!

Much love.

Pencak Silat.

Hi guys,

It’s mid afternoon now and I just got back from the gym. I did boot camp today and with the weather being too cold, I almost didn’t make it. But I promised my friends I’d be there so off I went!

I’m glad I did though coz it was so fun! We did a little dance coz this is the last routine and next week she’ll be doing Insanity.

Mental note:Β Youtube Insanity today!!

I didn’t use heavier weights this week coz I don’t want to hurt my knees. I still need to be careful with them. But hey, all that matters is forms. I don’t want to get heavy but my form sucks. (Also I don’t want to get called in front of everyone LOL)

Yes, she’ll call you out if your form is wrong. I didn’t like it at first but after giving it a thought, instead of being embarrassed and angry, I should be thankful. She’s the instructor and I’m her student. Jangan nait palak, Izza! πŸ™‚

As you guys probably know, all I did before was just run run run. I started with weights earlier this year. Maybe some time in Feb @ March. Thanks Daovy for showing me some of the basics and being so patient with me. I really appreciate it. πŸ™‚

My body is sculpting well(especially my arms, back,Β shoulders and thighs) but I know I could do better.

Friends have been asking me if I would have a 6-pack. Honestly, with the way I eat and workout (all yo-yo. I am ashamed of myself), I don’t think I could get those! Haha! I don’t do cardio as much as I should be doing and cardio is important to burn fat. So yeah, maybe not. And I love food too much too. 6 pack is beautiful but I don’t think I would wanna put in so much work and sacrifice all those great food. πŸ˜‰

So anyways, I’ve already been thinking of what I shall be doing next year and I am planning to learn some martial arts. Which one, I haven’t figured yet. Maybe taekwando.

Or kickboxing.

It will take a lot of hard work, I have read about it. But really, a lot of things in life require hard work and commitment too. Even marriage takes a lot of work. Doesn’t necessarily be physical. All those hard work and patience will pay off. That has always been my belief. πŸ™‚

Anyways, I have been watching this whilst eating my lunch.

I love Guru Rita. She’s a bad ass!

Haha!

 

Much love.
