Long Happening September Weekend

Happy Saturday!

Just giving a quick update on what went on in my life for the past few weeks!


Just ended training this morning and felt hungry. Eating a lot is my new normal. I had a craving for McDonald's after so long of not having junk food. Do not judge because it is my cheat day since all other days I am all about eating freshly cooked food. Eating healthy is important because you are what you eat. I am not sure if I had ever shared this before from a book I read Unlimited Power by Anthony Robbins. It says the key to leading a healthier life is to eat food that contains 75% water just as how the Earth and your body contains 75% water. There is more to it which includes the right dietary intake, when and how you should consume certain food. As much as I eat, I always do my best to eat everything in moderation!


My usual eating habit is to ensure I do not eat something too spicy although I adore spicy food, and make it a point to drink lots and lots of water throughout the day. The joy about drinking is that it lubricates my throat so that I can always project my voice when the occasion calls for it! Other than that, drinking lots of water helps a lot with sweating and its benefits are manifold. Of the many, having a supple skin motivates me to drink more! I like drinking plain water but wants variety occasionally. While cordial is not totally bad, you can always consider isotonic like NutriForce Balance Hydration where you can get from EPN Singapore. It is delicious, you get its health benefits from the flavoured powder, and of course, better hydration!

While we are on the topic on nutrition, I have been exploring ways on how to make supplements more than just a drink. I have been reading a lot and just beginning on the simple stuff like making protein pancake using NutriWhey and even amino ice blends. I swear my kitchen skills are not fantastic but it is not terrible either. These kind of experiments take some time though. I will show you soon! My strawberry pancake was just a start. It was delicious and filling by the way, never waste good protein! Thanks to EPN Singapore, I am able to do all these!


By the way, last weekend was crazy, good and bad...

The first great thing that happened last weekend was The Podium Lounge, lounging away on the first night of Singapore GP! Held at luxury hotel The Ritz-Carlton Millenia Singapore, it had so much entertainment and that was only for the first night. Heard it picked up for the other two nights! Great line up of artists, amazingly hot aerial performance (I have never been this up close to see an aerial dancer) and not forgetting great company! We got to see all the charity items for bidding on display! If you have that disposable money and if you do not own any one of these, here is how you do good, feel good, and get something great in return. It would be nice to own Pink Floyd's framed up guitar with autographs and have it on your wall, just a little something of statement to show your guests when they visit! Or if you are really in all about the giving without receiving, you could always get it as a gift for a Pink Floyd's die hard fan!


The following morning, I was up for a glitzing event at Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia.


I had a gastronomy of wedding delicacies at Kuala Lumpur (KL), Malaysia for a family friend's wedding! We headed to KL in the morning with the rest of the party, had tonnes of food and snacks there before the solemnization! Although I was there only for two nights, I enjoyed everything especially the company and the food. Even ordered in-room dining because I wanted to conserve my energy looking radiant for the reception. Besides, I was there for wedding so I do not see the point of tiring myself by going out.


Held at five-star resort, Hotel Bangi-Putrajaya, the reception was resplendent and we were entertained by exquisite jazzy live band, celebrity host, as well as a majestic entrance fit for the newly wed! Ultimately, there were no other stars than the two lovebirds whom everyone wants a photo with! The customary menu includes butter rice and favourite ayam masak merah! Indeed a weekend to remember for them and for us to!

We wish you all the happiness in your matrimony!


On the way back to Singapore, I received news that Princeton went missing. My heart sank. I love cats and the trouble is it was not mine to begin with! We hosted Princeton at my home as we were away for the wedding so it was under my family's care. That was not the first time we hosted Princeton so we were actually very surprised on his guts to run out fast and unnoticed. That was very unconventional of him! When we arrived, we had to spend the remaining stretch of our energy looking for that cat around the entire estate. Circulars were put all over and we were grateful that within 48-hours, the cat was finally found. God bless the person who returned the cat. Although it is not mine, I love the cat as much!

I was so busy that weekend I had to miss training. Woopsie! I am all back today on water. I need to resume with my weekday gym routine, just that I have some other backlogs to catch up with!

Here's a funny story - cross my heart.

Recently, I went to a movie premiere with my friend and I thought it would be a great time to catch up and of course, support the movie. When it comes to movies, I am one who avoids finding out details about the director to avoid prejudiced opinion because directors have a certain trait in their movies. Classic example, Tim Burton and his skittish outcast as one of his characters. Only thing is, this movie is not directed by Tim Burton. I only had heard of the director's name. We went to the movie, we thought it was great, nice cinematography and commendable story line. It was when I got home browsing the event hash tags that I realize the direcotr is someone I had met before - this very year. Woops, let's hope the director does not think that I was some sort of a snob when we crossed paths!

At least my opinion was unprejudiced. I really thought it was a great film before knowing who the director really was!

New collaboration coming up and it has got something to do with all the good stuff in your life! It has been a long time since I shopped and I will be back to share all the details with you guys! In the mean time, please support my existing and future collaborations! While it has always been my joy in exploring new products, ideas, services and many more, the true joy is when you too are satisfied and happy with them!

Nevertheless, whatever I feature, it has always been close to my heart, just as yours! Have a wonderful weekend and rest well!
