Yummy Nutri Noodle Soup

Hi folks!

When I used to stay with my in-laws, she would boil soup with red dates, black dates, tong kuai and tungshen to replenish our blood and Qi after our monthly "Aunty visit".

Now, I continued with the tradition by adding these herbs in my cooking. Always feel awesome and great after a nourishing soup like this.

What do you make or do after your menses to recuperate and replenish the much needed blood and Qi? Care to share?

Cheers to a healthy days ahead!

Days with DIY Laundry

Hi Folks!

How much I missed washing and hanging out laundry out under the sun ..and not having to search for coins to pay for my DIY Laundry.

Lately my wet kitchen where my washing machine is located is having drainage issue, thus each time I washed my plates or laundry, the entire floor get flooded.

Now I had to wait for people to fix it before I can start doing any proper cooking or even wash my laundry at home.

Even though I often lamented on the amount of laundry I need to wash being mom of 3, now I cherish the fact that I am able to do it at home without needing to pay MYR30 each trip of DIY Laundry. It cost me around RM20++ to wash + RM8 to dry my 3 days worth of laundry..phew..that could come up to quite a bit of money!

Wished my plumbing man come by and save me from this trip soon!

So folks, enjoy your wishy washy days!

All human are born with a creative seed in us, with the Power of Creation. No matter in what field and which role we are playing, whether as a Stay-At-Home-Mom(SAHM), CEO, IT support staff, taxi drivers or even tea lady, we all marvels and stay "alive", fresh", "inspired" and "motivated" when we put on our creative caps and create something new, implement the ideas from our mind. It just makes us feel excited, alive and enthusiast once more.

Therefore, in the midst of our daily routine work, never forget to inject some so-called experiment, research and development and exploration of our ideas. It is what fuel us to continue our journey in life, exploring our adventures being a human.

This is what i felt being a full-time working mom, wife, children, employees....we all need to have a go with the ideas or eureka moments that appears in our mind...the Power of Creation...never let it dies off!

Anything, anytime can be a time, an opportunity for us to let our creative juices flow, whether is to create a new recipe, to try a different way of doing things, to create a surprise for your loved ones, to write, to draw, to cook, to nurture a new life habits that will change how we lived our lives..the possibilities is endless!

Hunting for affordable running shoes

Hi folks!

I have another bucket list to check off this year that is to regain my energy and one of it is to by getting back on my running regime. As the sayings go, "Use it or Lose it!". If we stop pushing our body and making it work, it will then start to work less and there goes our energy level plummeted drastically.

And as I wore my running shoes after lying there lonely at the shoe cabinet and only see sunshine once in awhile, the base of the shoes gave way and I have to start my shoe hunting expedition.

And wow, never do I learnt so much about running shoes hunting.

Below are some of the tips I've got.
1. Check the expiry date from the labels.

From the label, you can see the manufacturing date of the shoes, in this pic it is Feb 2016. So this can be a guide if you do wish to get those shoes during sales. So check the manufacturing date if you don't wish to end up with old shoes that is not wearable few weeks down the road!

2. Base of the shoes
There are so many different technology used in each brands of good running shoes, we have gel type, cushioning, etc. If you are going to run 10km versus 42km, versus treadmill runs, all these requires different type of designs. For me as I will be starting with a 10km run on the road, I need to get something with 3-layer base with good grip for support and steady grip.

3. Where to get great deals?
My brother who is a serious runner shared with me a place called Mitsui Outlet near KLIA where we can usually get a good deal for many brands. However it might not be the latest model and might not have the size you want but definitely the price will be lesser than other places.

I do surf online to compare prices but I am someone who needs to wear the physical shoes before I feel confident buying it. So I went to SportsDirect Outlet and tested all sorts of brands and finally shortlisted 3. From the three models, I checked the price online and finally made my purchase at SportsDirect during their store wide 20% sales! Their salesperson is very helpful, patience and knowledgeable where I got many tips and advice as a newbie. I would definitely be back there with my kids to choose their sports gear!

So that's it folks! I've got my shoes and all ready to hit on the road! Are you ready?

Cheers to a healthy and fruitful holiday ahead!
