My Life As I see It

IT IS NOT JUST RELAXATION IN JOHOR... it is my new phase of life where I also work but only thing is that it is a different type of workload, not as in this picture here where my colleague captured it without my knowledge....
Slogging at work for the past 37 years?
Actually I enjoy office life, seriously....
If my work has no pressure, I don't think I will opt for retirement...
The office environment, my colleagues.. they are great!
Yes, due to old grey cells, I have to give them up... 
No, it is not about putting up legs up and relaxing after retiring from office...
It is also about housework!
Each day I do this... hanging and hanging...
After a hard day's work in the house, I pamper myself...
Yes, I admit I do enjoy food especially desserts....
They are just too irresistible!
But after the sweet calories, it is time to shed them off...
As my girl, everything must have a balance... In and Out...
 Traveling is one of the reasons I opt out..
I feel I am no more a "spring chicken" and there are so many places I love to go and visit...
And retirement age at 60 is just too far ahead...
I always remember what my friend told me...
Three main points...
If one has the time, money and health, do not wait any longer!
Go while we are still healthy....
Yes, I agree with that completely!

  6. Indeed! Life is too short to waste cooped up in the office day in day out, no time for anything else, but of course, if one needs the money, one does not have a choice. Otherwise, life is best spent resting, relaxing, doing things that one has to or wants or loves. I love my life as a retiree...

  7. I think there are more work to do after retirement, housework and there is no end to it if you really want to do it or else close one eye. Just that there is no pressure and you can work at your own pace. Love that bowl of desserts.

  8. Doing housework is more tiring than going to the office.. I do more at home when I'm at home.. At work, at least by the time I come back already 7pm, hehe..

  9. Different kind of work. More relax and more times to do the things you enjoy.

  10. Actually, logically speaking, your housework workload should not increase post-retirement. After all, you have been getting by for the past 37 years without trouble. Just because you are retired does not mean you should do more housework, does it? Maybe you can try to establish the same routine with housework that you used to do, and use the time where you used to be working to do what you really want to do. ;)

My White Elephant

WHITE ELEPHANT.... still laying on my table for two months I think....   My friend groomer is not free these days, my poor Labby badly needs her hair cut and leaving no choice, I ordered the grooming shaver online.  I thought it would be easy to install the shaver to the appliance and till today, I am still at my wits end on how it is fixed.  My friend gave me a tip... check out the Youtube, she said.  Yeah, how come I did not think of that.....  But till today, I have not even touched it and my poor furry member will have to wait till this Mama has her right mood to do it.   My own hair also badly needs a hair cut and with the high Covid cases each day, I guess I have to tolerate for another month with my unruly hair..... or perhaps I can make use of this clipper on myself before I use it on my furry member!  LOL.... Crazy me! Still standing nicely on the table....  Still looking at the gadgets.... and not doing anything about them... I am happy with this dish....  Better looking afte

Two Dishes One Soup Dinner

AUNTIE'S SIMPLE COOKING... for dinner on one evening.... Defrosted a piece of cod, my last piece in the freezer besides another few more pieces of other types of fish.  I think I consume the most fish this year, never bought so many types of fish before.  Maybe it is made easier for me this year cos of the online shopping at Gracious, cleaned, vacuumed and free delivery above RM50.   My last piece of cod.... A plate of greens called Yau Mak...  Not so sure what it is called in English And chicken herbal soup....  My complete meal for one evening....  As usual, I do not take much rice... Or perhaps I did not take rice at all for this meal....  LOL... 

A Short Stay At Fatima Hospital

TWELVE DAYS SINCE my last post.... I was admitted to the hospital last week for heart palpitations and was under observation for two nights.... Thank God all is well now....  And it is still all about food... this time from the hospital... LOL...  For breakfast 2 slices of bread... oats and milo.... I opted for porridge during one lunch.... And for dinner....  Wanton noodles for breakfast before I was discharged.... This was attached to my body to monitor the palpitations....  And the doctor whom I have chosen without recommendations... I saw the hospital profiles on the doctors  And I chose him because of his cheerful profile picture.... Yes, indeed he is what he looks... And I feel better after that... LOL...
