My Bones Density And Cholesterol Test

One pharmacy in old town called me up stating that there would be a free Bone Density Test and Cholesterol Test held in their shop on Tuesday, just a couple of days ago.  Since it is free of charge, I went to get the tests done.  No long queues surprisingly cos I went in the afternoon after taking lunch and all.  Not so accurate no doubt but with lunch and all, I was expecting my cholesterol level to be on the "high" side.
Firstly, I was instructed to put my right leg on a machine... 
The result came out like this....  at the -0.9 level but still on the green side.... 
Borderline no doubt... but at my age, it is not surprising at all....
Two of my colleagues were at the yellow and red respectively...
One of them bought calcium magnesium after that...
Then came my cholesterol level...
During the past two years, I was at the 6.1 and 6.2 level respectively.
But this year my level showed 5.68 (at another clinic few months back)
and now 5.52 at this pharmacy.....
Good eh??? 
It has reduced....
Maybe my daily drinking of BG22 Oats help to reduce my cholesterol level...
Or perhaps my light lunch also helps... ??
Whatever it is, I also must need to maintain...

  3. Well done! MY cholesterol was always high but lately it was under control and even went until 4.5 , thanks to Amway products - Cholesterol Balance and Salmon Oil. My wifey also went down. Thought of sharing with you since they are good. Of course, my 5 times a week exercise and diet also helps.

  7. Oohh I've done a bone density test before.. I remembered that few months I was having a lot of yogurt and Anlene milk, coz I was trying to conceive so I took a lot of hi calcium food.. And that bone density reading is very accurate, I got the highest reading among my colleagues.. So yeah, I guess those yogurt and Anlene milk really have a lot of calcium in them, hehe..

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

UPHILL....

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…
