counting days to raya 2011

It's 5.16am, and i've done with another sahur for the day.
Sims Social is not loading *sigh* , so forget about staying up till sun rise.

Mama and everybody announced that Raya will fall on 30th august.
Hrmm.. weird.. I could've sworn i saw the calender stated 31st last time ?
Or in usual case, Raya will fall on one day after the announcement was made (which on this year's case, announcement will be made on the 29th Aug).
Whatever it is, I'm happy with either day :)
I just fret that i have to return to work on Friday since it won't be a public holiday *pfft~*

Mama managed to get the big and fat Medjool kurma (dates) from her friend =D
Seriously, forget Yussof Taiyuub... it's skinny and tasted dry.
I only like their previous selections with almond/walnut in the middle.
But THIS brand (medjool) is large and sweet!
I'll be taking medjool as one of my diet regime after the fasting month to accompany my workout regime that is Monday and Wednesday class at Kinabalu Fighters *am joining as an official member, finally~*.. and Tuesday/Thursday, Friday and one of the weekends at my apartment gym (HIIT) and swimming pool...
Oh! maybe will try slot Yoga in between as well coz I've been skipping Monica's class at Core Fitness for months now =_="

Aight~ Sims Social is STILL not loading.
Gonna catch up some sleep now.
Rise and shine peeps~

Honeymoon Dream Location 2012

Ever since I've stumbled upon a traveling site to go for a '26 days Ultimate Europe trip', I've finally willing to let go of one of my Honeymoon dream location, that is, Japan.
Reason being, my parents were too worried about all the radiation and natural disaster happened few months back.
I've tried my best to re-assure my mom that not all areas are affected.. but she insisted that it's a NO GO

So oh well~ I was thinking to myself,
hey AT LEAST, travelling around Europe WAS one of my target since my last Uni year anyway...
Back then, my ex and I were planning to have a back packing trip with other uni friends and innocently set a target to save RM20k *thinking back, the amount made me want to vomit blood *
AND now.. who knows you can travel on a tour for only RM6-7k!
Add a return flight to that will only be additional Rm3k

Haa~ forget LA, Australia and America FOR NOW (ooo... i wan't to go to Costa Rica Spa in Central America too!), or even chilling on Malibu beaches for a week (Let's leave that in my diary for the future)...
for now Europe trip for a month will be superb!

The Air Asia's Osaka, Japan super low Cost Promotion last week...


All of the sudden, my mom approved of us going to Japan (what~... )
And after hearing the approval, BB jumped happily coz unlike myself, his main priority IS to go to Japan
It's not that I'm not excited for him.. but but but...
aww man... after all that excitement and plan to take 1 month unpaid leave

Now, we're still deciding.

Knowing how fast hostels/hotels in Japan get fully booked during the Sakura time, I've spent the whole last week planning my route and reserved the dates for decent places to stay.
Lucky me, i got a decent hotel which is the SAME PRICE as normal hostel, AND i don't need to pay a single cent :)
Any last minute cancelation can be made at least a week in advance without any cancellation fee too *bangga~*

As for Europe trip, I'm still waiting for their 2012 price which is only available next month.
Until THEN, then we will decide.

Either location, i'll be happy as long as it is a honeymoon with BB

Oh no~ it's 7 days to Hari Raya!
I have 4 months left to lose more weight!
Must... control.... food...


Eco shopping during Ramadhan

I have so many cravings these days.
If it weren't for the Ramadhan Month, i would have dragged Mars out to buy whatever i can find at the mart right next to our office.
Or maybe drive Nadia out for Hot Choc at Boutique Cupcakes... (she's always pissed if i do that coz she wants to lose weight)
Or how about take BB out for Chicken Cordon Bleu, Spicy MarryBrown Burger, Spicy Chicken McD, Dukbokki, Tiramisu and...
hrmm... you know what.. BB is not the right person to bring out while i have cravings..
He'll just encourage me to eat whatever i want =_="
Roarrr~~ ><".. must... discipline...
Else I'll need to do triple of 'The Jna's HIIT workout'

As for now, what i REALLY want to eat, especially during this fasting month is Bubur Cha Cha from Sri Keningau and also Bubur Lambuk.
Any idea where i can get delicious Bubur Lambuk in Bazaar Ramadhan KK?

Sri Keningau's Bubur Cha Cha

If you're out for crazy bazaar ramadhan shopping, please try to bring a big bag, OR use 1 big plastic bag and put all other small items in it.
You don't really need to ask the vendor for a big plastic bag when u just buy 1 piece of kueh.
Try to be an eco shopper and practice eco shopping once in awhile.
If you're lazy to bring a recycle bag, at least, like i said, try to combine items into 1 big plastic bag and save the rest.
It's not hard at all right?

One guy bought 2 pcs of kueh the other day from my grandma's stall.
I asked him if he can put the small plastic bag containing his kueh inside his other bigger plastic bag that he was carrying.
He insisted me on giving him another bigger plastic bag when he's already carrying soooo many plastic bags in his hand
Mau buat collection plastic warna warni is it?

Anyway, i passed my Japanese Level 2 Oral test last Monday
Final exam is coming soon and i really hope they'll open up Level 3 class next year.
Ganbatte~~ ^_^

20 days of Ramadhan 2011 to go

10 days of Ramadhan gone by, and so is 1.5 of my kilos
I'm beginning to love brisk walking in Tun Fuad park.
Trying my best to achieve the minimum 10,000 steps a day to avoid my hip getting wider and wider
I respect BB how he can still have energy to do circuit training even after terawih.
Circuit training is a hell and super mental stress for me =_=
I prefer yoga, kick boxing training and dancing thank you :P

Was looking through all my old xanga posts just to find back an old animation video for reference.
Man.... seeing back, it was mostly fun back then.
Trips, gatherings, covering events... my blog posts were so colourful then and i miss it.
Less hate, more love.... Well i don't hate people except 1... well maybe 2 for being so stupid.

I stumbled a post where my family and I went to Perth for Cici's graduation.
Took few photos of all the houses there as it resembled almost like how i'm imagining my dream house/retire house would be in the future.

Hrmm... do you think it's possible to have an Australian-concept house here in KK?
with cool breeze that allows you to take a walk in the park during weekends...
or have picnic now and then...
Right now I'm imagining Bb and I walk hand in hand like those old couple i saw the other day...

Fast forward to the future, I would want to own just a medium sized house with a front porch, a garden (gardener will maintain it of course) and a small pond.
During the weekend, i would bake cakes and served fruit tea and watch over my grandchildren playing in the garden (typical, i know but i'm that old school )
But that won't work without a cool breeze weather...
So KK is out if i'm planning to have a house such as this :P

Mars suggested to send my kids to study in Australia, then apply for PR before i plan to migrate and retire there..
That's a great idea, but i do hate Summer... (freaking hot =_=)
Plus, i'll have to work hard (and smart) so that i can retire happily without having to think of money and work =P

Okay~~ tooooo far ahead....
What was i suppose to do originally...?
Oh... right.. find video animation..
