Do Something Different & Take Up A New Hobby!

No matter how busy you are - you always make time in your life to try new things. To stay vital and alive it's crucial that you continue to push your brain and your body to new heights. A challenge is something that should not be avoided. Someone that constantly pushing themselves to reach new heights will be rewarded and will thrive. You don't need to be young to learn. Taking up a new hobby will spark your imagination and pique your interest in a variety of things. Don't miss out on learning something new just because it feels alien to you. It's always hard to be a beginner at something but once you start to get the hang of it, you'll feel so proud of yourself!


1. Learn to play a new instrument
There's something truly magical about learning to play a new instrument - especially when you are a little older! I can be truly rewarding to take yourself off to a lesson once every week and pick up a new skill. It will completely take you away from your comfort zone and push you to remember things that you might not have thought about before. Playing an instrument is also a great trick to pull out unexpectedly at party to entertain people.


2. Start a collection
Whether you want to start a beautiful stamp collection or prefer to research and discover rare zim currency; building a collection is something you can put your heart and soul into. The wonderful thing about collecting is that it can purely be for you. No one else even has to be bothered about how much you have. You will feel an enormous sense of satisfaction when you find something to add that you've been looking for for ages! Start off slowly and order things is a way that you'll continue to enjoy. You never know, you could end up making your collection worth something!


3. Begin to paint
You might not have picked up a set of paints since you were at high school. If this is the case, you might have forgotten just how soothing drawing and painting and being creative it. You don't have to be the most amazing artist to feel good about doing it. Painting and drawing are more about learning what you like and what you find difficult. It also gives you the chance to improve your existing skills. You will build your confidence with it over time so don't give up.


4. Knit something
Knitting is a hobby that is portable. You can take your knitting needles and your wool with you anywhere that you go. It gives you the perfect excuse to put down your phone and focus your energy elsewhere. If you have small babies in your family, set yourself a task of knitting them something cute like a scarf. Everyone will think you're very clever and you'll get such a sense of joy when you see them wearing it.

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 …

Caring And Sharing At Limestone, Regal Lodge, Ipoh

IMPROMPTU GATHERING.... Nothing was planned beforehand, it was only at the last minute that we received call to have lunch at Limestone Cafe, inside Regal Lodge.  It was my first time there to have set lunch.  The menu prices were reasonable, around RM15.90 for the main dish, RM3 for a bowl of soup and RM2 for ice cream.  Other than that, coffee, tea and soft drinks are free.  
We were there not so much for the food but for the ambiance... we practically had the whole cafe to ourselves during that lunch hour.  Only one or two tables were occupied and we spent more than two hours there since it was a Friday long hour lunch for my working colleagues.  After a few months absence from me, it was wonderful to catch up with my ex-colleagues again!  
I was super hungry by lunch time and I felt like eating almost anything in the menu. We ended up ordering one main dish each and then sharing them with one another so that we could taste a bit of this and that..... 
I felt like eating Aglio Oli…

Famous Wanton Mee At New Hoong Kee, Bandar Sri Damansara

BREAKFAST FEAST..  Best meal of the day is always my first meal because I know I am able to tuck in as much as my stomach can accept.  I eat a lot in the mornings and then slowly dwindle by the end of the day.  As the saying goes, eat like a king in the morning and like a pauper in the evenings.  This is what I normally do nowadays, not because I wanted to, but it is my own body system that tune me this way.  Though I deny I am old but the body says otherwise... LOL...

On this morning, we went to New Hoong Kee in Bandar Sri Damansara, my sibling said this is currently his favourite place.  And after trying, I know why.... the food we ordered, all turned out good and tasty, even the curry reminded me of my good old days!
Managed to catch the name otherwise I wouldn't be able to tell this story now...  My type of curry... I can go without the chicken... Just the other ingredients will do fine for me.. I like the way they cook this curry... Heard the BBQ pork is tasty too... melt in …
