Food Review | Brotzeit + My Valentine's Day

Well... This year is kind of different for us. We bought each other an expensive gifts, not like other years which is just a dinner and all. Yup we still have dinner together, strolling to Sentosa. No flowers for me cos I don't like but if it is a bouquet of bears, I will accept. Cos that can keep for long... That's what I get in 2009 for my birthday from my guy. He knows what I want. So this year, he bought me my long awaited Samsung Galaxy SII. Hahahahah... In the end, I still choose SS than iPhone. Cos soon is gonna be Android world. And iPhone is way tooooo common. Everywhere is iPhoner. Nothing special. My SS GSII has bigger screen than iPhone....
So our dinner starts at Brotzeit @ VivoCity. Great. We underestimated the portion, yet again. Had it once at Raffles City with my ladies but that time was different cos there are 4 of us but now this round is just the 2 of us.... Gosh.... Shock of our life upon arrival of that Pork Knuckle. First look, it looks so delicious, cris…

Student Stresssss

I'm just like the little cute doll. Panda eyes is getting more obvious as day passed. Assignments kept popping into my mind. Deadline is nearing. My last one before the deadline. Gosh... 2000 shitty words to write. And I rewrite over n over again. Can't even write up to 1000 words. Is not a relief for me if the word count is not reaching any time to 1700 words, I'm dead! I have already submitted the 2nd one for plagarism test and luckily it is just 1% and I find it stupid! Crap! Piece of SHIT indeed! Never in my life I had written such amount of words by myself.  And usually is group project. Too bad. We have to upgrade ourselves... N so I sort of anticipated this situation right now. Sigh.... Since the start of school, I couldn't sleep well and always slept late like 12mn or 1am.  Usually before the strike of 12mn, I should b sleeping soundly. Haiz... I just can't wait to finish up this assignment on HRM. And prepare myself for 1 group project and a final individu…

2nd day of CNY. My guy came over my house as usual, for lunch. Abit screw up this year. Cos my bro's gf is coming over and only that morning, they told me is dinner and not lunch. I said I was not told about it!!!! I screamed at my parents! And they immediately get ready for lunch. And even told me not to tell my guy about this awkward thing. Kaoz... I also don't want to tell.  I scare he is embarassed. So my parents just let me scream on that day. After lunch, me and my guy …

You Are What You Eat

Well... I got what they mean. I am always in that 'insufficient water, vitamins' etc. From tomorrow onwards, I will look into it again. After the start of my degree program in Jan, I am suffering from insufficient sleep and stress over the assignments.  That has indeed cause me a great deal!  I am prone to stress eating.  And lacking of exercise, I feel that I'm back to that fatness again which in turn cause by stress eating. Gosh... I told my guy about this too.  He is saying that I have slimmed down externally (though not much of different to me) but he advised me not to continue with this stress eating. Oh well... I just can't control. I have to keep reading up all these to remind myself that I am in my 30s and I have to maintain a good health and lifestyle. So u peeps out there, please do take a total care of your health, mentally and physically. You Are What You Eat

Natural wonders – Green tea

Woohoo... This has become part of my life and is also my daily dosage (especially during working hours).  I am always having at least a cup of hot green tea and maximum up to 3 brews a day.  I knew the only benefits is lose weight and with this, I knew even in depth. Natural Wonders - Green Tea

Enough and beyond has been written about green tea and its numerous health benefits. How exactly does it help your body? Read on to find out.
Green tea and its nutrientsAll kinds of tea, be it black, green or oolong, comes from the Camellia sinensis plant. The colour of the tea depends upon the amount of fermentation it has been through. Oolong tea is partially fermented, black tea is completely fermented and green tea is not fermented at all. It is produced by steaming fresh tea leaves at very high temperature. That tea is rich in antioxidants is a given, but green tea is known to contain large amounts of polyphenols, thearubigins, epicatechins and catechins – all types of an antioxidant known as …

10 Foods for Fabulous Abs

I seriously gonna follow all these through for once to see whether if it works. Let's all try out though you may have been constantly having, but do try those which you have never eye on. Out of 10, I had 8 of them, but not on regular basis. That's sad. But is never too late. I am constantly posting whatever I read so that I have enough information to inject on myself which helps in reminding myself that I must be healthy and fit. 10 Foods for Fabulous Abs
Yogurt is magic for the tum. Nutritionist Rania Batayneh recommends yogurt, “The probiotic bacteria in most yogurts help keep your digestive system healthy, which translates into a lower incidence of gas, bloating, and constipation, which can keep your tummy looking flat." Ideally go for the plain-flavoured yogurts, that don’t contain added sugars. 
Switch to whole grain. The body shows a decreased insulin response to whole grain as compared to refined carbohydrate like rice and white bread. So replace those meals of whit…

Couple Run Again

Ya not exactly couple run but is the Safari Zoo Run 2012. Woohoo.... My guy is being forced to join this run with me, yet again after last year's Safra Army Half Marathon 2011. Hahahahah... That was his first ever paid run (yup, paid by me) and today is his 2nd ever despite he is sick actually. Plus leg pain. Anyway, was a good one. We joined the Fun Run as usual (like the one last year). 6km actually is killing him. But luckily we managed to complete a non stop 2km then subsequently, walk and run till the finishing point. His legs aching again. Especially his knee. Sigh... What is the reason? Too much of up slope. Down slope is still not so bad. But up slope is killing him. For me is a challenge. I usually run on straight road...... But today, is like never before. As we walk, he was saying that if want to train for this run, should go to Macritchie Reservoir. Why? Cos mainly terrains. Arrghh... I think I too comfort with my current running route and forgotten that there is still…

Best sources of vitamin D

Are you getting enough of Vitamin D? Maybe you want to read up this article which I find it useful. Can be found in Yahoo! Best Sources Of Vitamin D

Sunlight is the best way to get your vitamin D fix.
The best source of vitamin D is sunlight, which causes the vitamin (actually a hormone) to form under your skin. Exercising outside is an excellent way to ensure you get your daily dose. There are only a few foods that provide good levels of vitamin D, including oily fish (eg salmon and sardines), eggs, fortified breakfast cereals and spreads. 
The chief medical officer for England has advised health workers to consider suggesting at-risk groups take vitamin D supplements to avoid the risks of deficiency. A lack of vitamin D can lead to rickets in babies and children. Find out more about rickets at our sister site
Vitamin D also has several important functions, including regulating the amount of calcium and phosphate in the body. These substances are needed to keep bones and t…

Q Q Stuffy

Let me show u those cute stuffs I've found whereva I go...
I come to know about this snacky during my class. A classmate bought this at 7-11. I find the packaging cute and looks like u are having a pack of juice or milk. Hahaha... And it's colourful. Not available at all 7-11, I guess. Only found it at the 3rd one which is at Raffles Place, the underground passageway towards One Marina Boulevard etc. Cost $2.30 per pack and I bought 2. Hahahah..... Is cheese flavour, not my favourite so I brought home for my mum.
Next will be the mini Tic Tac. I'm not so sure if there is anywhere but I found it at a provision shop. Call me a mountain tortoise if u saw this somewhere else. Hahahah... But is cute. I bought 3 flavours, cost me 40cents each. Got scolded by my guy for buying even when it is 40cents. But I'm not gonna have it but put it as display. Hahahahahha....
Next, Vitasoy. Is yet again during my class. My classmate has a spare Vitasoy so she gave it to me. Very Chinese …
