Hooray, Hooray, Its Four Days Holiday!!

I slept around 12.45am this morning and when my alarm rang, I just couldn't get up to go to work.  My head started spinning and all at once, I felt like vomiting, reminding me of my nausea days few decades ago.

Went to the nearest hospital outpatient clinic and the doctor told me that my blood pressure was 150/80.  He told me to monitor again on some specific dates (4 days) and if my reading is still on the "high side"... I will have to go on medication.
I hope not...

It could be due to stress... but I am wondering what cause me stress... as far as I am concerned, I love to keep myself busy and occupied... relaxing in front of the computer and watching television... the only thing that seems to stress me up is the Housework!

Anyway, I am glad I was given a day off by the hospital doctor... he said I needed to rest... but too bad he gave me only one day... well, better than "no day"... But mind not, after tomorrow, there will be FOUR DAYS OFF!!   Selamat Hari Raya holidays!


  1. Oppsss...that was alarming.Take care & rest well.

  2. Hope u getting well soon...enjoy the Hari Raya Holiday ya :D

  3. Doc must tell you to stay off blogging. but then again that will stress u even further right? Hehe..

  4. You too anxious la.. just rest more and exercise. Cut down on meat and blog!

  5. Oh dear, you are not feeling well again? Good that you have a few days rest. But are you going to sneak out and enjoy all the Raya goodies? I just guess you probably would :P I need to send some spies....haha. I do hope you recover very quickly.

  6. Sorry to hear that you were unwell. Some brisk walking or light gardening would do you a lot of good in reducing your blood pressure. Also your diet but sometimes it is due to hereditary issues. Medication is not the answer, the answer is withing yourself.

    How lucky you all are to have 4 days public holiday!!

  7. Get well soon Claire. :D

    I am sure the extra days off will come in handy. :)

  8. REMEMBER!!!! REST!!! RELAX!!! Not go here, go there, drive here, drive there, eat this, eat that... Sure that's a whole lot more fun but in the end, it will get worse, I tell you!

    Just like me, sometimes I get migraine but I just dunno what I'm 'stressing' about.

Reunion At Museum Restaurant At Starling Mall

CLASSMATES REUNION... but not from my year.  i just tagged along with my sister who wanted my company that evening.  She was going to meet up with some of her classmates at The Starling mall.  I did not want to drive there, taking Grab is a much easier and practical choice, considering it was rush hour in the evening.  Furthermore, I am not familiar with the roads... both of us might panic on the federal highway.  LOL... 
Having someone to take us there is so stress free, we only have to pay RM20 for the ride.  :)  Our first time to Startling Mall and being made familiar by one of the bloggers, Phong Hong who used to post up her lunch meals taken from there.  We were supposed to meet up at 7pm but we reached there an hour earlier to "survey" the shops and ended up buying a "bit."  Blame it on my sister who always like to give positive comments most of the time!   The dinner was held at The Museum.... Originated from Ipoh actually and how there is a branch here in …

Getaway Weekday Trip To Cameron Highlands


It has been two years since I last made an overnight trip to Cameron Highlands.  It was an impromptu trip, we only talked about it a couple of nights and the next day, all was arranged and done.  My friend rented the apartment from her niece, for two nights, we got a good deal, each of us only paid RM50 for a two nights stay.  Of course, it was an off peak season, otherwise we could not get the good deal offer.  LOL.... My friends planned everything from A to Z, they even went marketing to buy all the food stuff needed, pre-cooked some to take up for our steamboat dinner in the evening.  The weather was very cooling and nice, we had to wear our jackets especially in the evenings and mornings. 

Started off our journey by eating something light from Ipoh cos we have planned to take something good for lunch in Tringkap.  On the way, we stopped at a place called Green View Garden for some desserts before proceeding for our lunch.  Hmmmm... desserts before main meal?
Our fir…

Gathering At Top Grade Hot Soup, Ipoh

HOT SOUP ON RAINY DAYS... Yes, nowadays it pours, almost every day and in the late afternoon.  So cooling that I do not need to switch on the air con these days.  For cooling days, it is best to drink hot soup but do not land into one, okay?  LOL.. 
A few of my classmates planned an evening out at Top Grade restaurant at Festival Walk area.  I did not know that Ipoh has a branch, my first time was taken in Penang.  The boss told us that they have a branch in Ipoh, that sounds great!  I like their soup cooked with coconut water, the sweet taste is there... but funny, I don't know it is me or the soup, I still find the one I ordered in Penang is much nicer than this Ipoh branch.  I tried two times in Ipoh, my verdict?  The soup is still better in Penang.. okay, Penang wins!  The coconut soup base looks like this.....  Consisting of chicken, pig stomach, chestnuts, corn, red dates...  It cost RM58 since I am a member.. otherwise it is RM78... Others are add-ons...  And the soup gang…
