Life: Weight

I'm battling with my inconsistent weight since I was high school.I'm not saying that I was overweight or obese (konon), but I did exceed my ideal weight when I was 18!

KYS (my high school) was a perfect place to accumulate and grow the white flabby fat. The school fed me with Nasi Ayam for lunch, Nasi Lemak for breakfast and Ramli Burger for supper back then. The best food that every student wishes for! We just could not get enought of it! 6 meals a day just inevitably welcoming this so called, Mr Fat (My BFF). But back then, Mr Fat was silently hiding under my skin. Even though he was eager to introduce himself to the world, I could still control his appearance since I was really active in school activities.

Having a part time job at fast food restaurant was the biggest mistake after high school. I worked at KFC and I was showered with mash potatoes, original recipe chicken, burgers, fries and so forth everyday. My daily meals were fried in a big oily pan. I know Mr Fat was happy coz he could adopt more fatty kids, fatty grandkids and fatty grand-grandkids accompany him along under my skin. Guess what, my weight was 65kg! I could not simply get into my jeans. And it was frustrating!

When I was in college, I was far away from "good" food. I mean Malaysian food. Yup, I could easily control my food consumption. My weight was around 53kg. If you can see, I lost a lot of weight. I felt good though. Feel light and young.But, Mr.Fat was not happy.

In 2008, I'm married and pregnant. I ate not for two but three. Even though I vomitted in the morning, I will simply eat my brunch double of my breakfast. So , you can imagine how much weight I gained. The doctor was telling me that I need to control my food. The ideal gain is suppose to be between 10 kg to 15 kg for pregnant lady, but I was 18kg.

Nah, now I'm carrying the extra 2 kg in me now. I should be grateful coz I managed to reduce it to 55kg and manage to fit in into my old jeans. But, I wish I can have loose the other extra and feel young again!

Life: I'm dying for hair cut

I know I know.
The last time when I had my hair cut was a month after Zara was born.
And yeah, what year was that? 2008.
And what year is now? 2010

I am deeply, desperately and s**tly need a hair cut.
Call me cheapskate. I wont mad at all. But, the truth is yes I AM.
Going to hair salon would definitely cost me USD20 at min.
That means I have to sell 10 pax of my nasi.
Which translated to the whole week of profit :(.

Sad, sad and sad.
Is there anyone out there who would like to enhance her hair cutting skill and in need of guinea pig?
I'm more than willing to volunteer here.

Life: Madagascar

Zara has been watching Madagascar for 100th time. And has not given up yet.

OMG, she's very excited when there is a scene that shows the "clapping and shouting" of people. She understands the emotion. Great!

She dances when she hears the " i like to move it" song.

One movie that would definitely help me while i'm in the kitchen...

Life: Playgroup

Yup, we attended the playgroup today.

Zara is the eldest among all.
The babies are mostly 6 to 10 months old and they are just either started rolling or standing.
And Zara on the other hand, busy climbing up the stairs and running around the house. She is like the leader of all these big babies.
Mind you, even Zara is 13 months, she is just as big as that 7 months old Paul.

Being around American Mom sometimes feels different.
They talk softly and always gentle to their babies.
They communicate a lot with their babies and they praise whenever the babies are doing a good job.
Something that I should learn about.
Yeah, being typical Asian, we are very strict.
No means NO...

We are going to meet up again next week.
