Aloha!



Destination is tempting. Plus I can shop for my wedding! Woot!

But............ I told Mr. H, 'kalo pergi, takut hitam...'

He said it's gonna be winter, and we can stay out of the sun. haha

It'd be nice to go, and this time there shouldn't be a problem with my leave since it's gonna be in January next year, so I'd have another 22 days...

The only thing is whether my boss will let me go for a week or two...

Maybe I could submit the quarterly report earlier perhaps??
Is SIRIM gonna be auditing us then? Hopefully not!

A Few Days Off From Work! *grin*

In November, I'll be going to............

Singapore!




I thought it'd be a good idea to go survey, window shop, and maybe shop, since soon enough I would have to start shopping for my Big Day!
So since I'll be heading down to Johor for my sis-in-law to be's wedding next month, I thought might as well I spend a few days in Singapore.

So one night in Johor and 3 nights in Singapore. Yeayy.



Shopping tips anyone?

A Fun Way to Do IT!

I watched Channel E yesterday, and they were talking about Madonna and how she keeps herself fit, and she owes it all to her personal trainer Tracy Anderson. It does look like Tracy's workouts seem to work really well!

And one of the things she uses for her workouts is.........
............... the WiiFit Plus!

I want a Wii Fit!







I told Mr. H about it, and he said yes, we can get it once I'm in the US. Yeay!! Something to motivate me to exercise :p

Anyway, I was supposed to hit the gym today after work, but I woke up late, and didn't have time to pack my clothes this morning (a lame excuse, I know :p)

I shall get my things ready tonight, so I won't have an excuse tomorrow!

TGIF!

It is the best day of the week, because in a few hours, it will be the weekend!

And today is a special day for me since it was my very first time trying nasi kukus!

It was a spur of the moment kinda thing actually. The initial plan was to eat at Nirwana Maju, since it has been a while since I had this good sinful meal. But my colleagues and I ended up at this kedai nasi kukus right above the Bangsar Village basement parking (not the one adjoining the mall, but the one that has a few rows of stalls above it).

--------

Here's the story:
After we found a parking spot, we were so hungry we were talking about food :p As as we were babling about food, food and food, my colleagues and I changed our minds to eat at 'kedai panas' instead. It's not the name of the place, but it's what I call it :p It serves good western food for very cheap. 10bucks for grilled chicken with sidelines in Bangsar. Cheap right? But of course, since it's not in an airconditioned building, so it can be pretty hot at midday. Hence, the 'kedai panas' name :p

As we walked pass a few stalls at the area, we changed our minds (again!). It was because of the aroma of seasoned chicken/ayam rempah from another stall. It was sooooo tempting. And this time we made up our minds to try the nasi kukus and ayam rempah instead!



The nasi kukus and ayam rempah was something we didn't regret. Simply delicious!

And the heavenly meal, we adjourned to BVII. My colleague wanted to check something out at L'occitane. While she was at it, I got something for myself too. Not at L'occitane, but at Haagan Daz! I tried the limited edition flavour. I think the name was berries & cream.

Gosh, I think I weigh a tonne now :p

I am so loving Friday! :)

My Big Project No. 2



The 2 most important things in my to-do list are:

1. Wedding prep
2. Learn how to COOK!

I'm bad at cooking.
Let me rephrase that.
I can't say I'm bad or not, because I don't know how. And I need to learn.... pronto!

I've got less than 6 months to learn, should be enough time, right? *worried*

Since I know some of you are your partner's personal chef, please, please, please share with me your secret!
I've tried googling 'resepi masakan melayu' and there were a number of hits. Not sure which one I should pick.
If you have any recipes you don't mind sharing with me or you know any websites that can help me with this big project of mine, your ideas and thoughts are most welcome!

Some of the things I want to learn how to cook:
1. Nasi lemak & the sambal too
2. Rendang ayam/daging (which one is easier?)
3. Nasi tomato (it's my favorite, so I must learn, right?)
4. Nasi ayam
5. Gulai lemak ayam/daging/ikan masin
6. Ayam masak merah
7. Ayam/Daging/Ikan masak kicap
8. Soto
9. All the other malay dishes you can think of!
10. Oh yeah, dal for the nasi tomato too :p

The simpler, the better. But of course, sedap :)

Cruise or No Cruise



What was suppose to be a cruise around Putrajaya lake, became a tour around Putrajaya city :p

--- On the final day before the delegates left, an arrangement to go on a cruise around Putrajaya was done by the Secretariat of the meeting. My colleague and I decided to take her car instead of going on the bus for no reason actually. Sajer jer.

So the bus went off first, we left Bangsar about 15 mins later by car - in her 335i, thinking we would be able to catch up with them in no time. But luck wasn't on our side even at the start of the journey and we couldn't find the new highway. The highway was suppose to take us to Putrajaya fast (I can't remember the name of the highway though) but we lost our way and we took the Sungai Besi highway instead.

And to add to that, a colleague of mine (who was already in Putrajaya) gave us wrong info, saying that we were to meet at the mosque in Precint 4, which in actually fact was Precint 1. It was actually the lake right smack in the center of Putrajaya; at the mosque and PM's office - a VERY important detail he forgot to tell us.

So we went round Putrajaya trying to find a mosque at Precint 4. The GPS didn't help much, since we didn't have any details whatsoever, except for Precint 4. No street name, no landmark, no POI (Points of Interest).

And so we spent 1/2 hour going around Putrajaya by land instead of by water like the others. What a day. We managed to find the lake at about 20 minutes before the cruise was over.

Cruise or no cruise, we had fun going on our very own treasure hunt :p

Good Food is Hard To Resist

Last Tuesday & Wednesday, I was out of the office to attend an inaugural meeting with the delegates from Asia & West Pacific to discuss a few issues on ESI Restructuring. The venue was the The Gardens Hotel, KL. A few of us (including myself) was given the duty as a rapporteur to put on paper the issues raised during the discussions of the country papers presented by the delegates.

So as always, one of the good things about these events/meetings, I get to indulge myself in good hotel food and 5-star accomodation on the company's tab.

It was my first time dining at The Spread. Food is quite good if you ask me. The spread was quite extensive which includes oysters too. Yum. I didn't wanna stuff myself too much as there was gonna be an afternoon session (can't afford to fall asleep) but yeah, 3 rounds of food + a bowl of ice-cream was what I had :)



After lunch, I went up to the room to freshen myself, and hopped onto the scale. I started to touch 50 kilos about 2 months ago, and I still am in the 50s. 51.5 to be specific as of last Tuesday. I'm quite happy with my weight, although some clothes I have are a bit tight now :p



Since the puasa month is over, I'm gonna start being a little healthier by hitting the gym!
