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.

An Evening Dinner At Chef Chew Kitchen, Petaling Jaya

BACK TO SG. BULOH for a couple of days.... Come evening, we went for dinner at Chef Chew Kitchen in Seksyen 19, Petaling Jaya.  Since it was my first time there, I did not know what to expect except to sit back, relax and eat.  LOL... It is a one shop lot restaurant so tables are very limited.  Reservation was made at 6pm to be on the safe side, to avoid crowds and waiting for food was very minimized at this time of the day.  For the seven of us, these dishes were served on the table... Thumbs up even before the dinner...  And soon these are served...  Claypot braised ribs...  Their signature dish... Fish Maw...  First time eating fish maw which is whitish in colour...  Black Beancurd with Pumpkin sauce... Hey, this restaurant indeed serves new to me! This must be Sweet Sauce Chicken... For the American... Cos we Asians like Steamed Chicken like this!  LOL...  And the star dish of the dinner is this...  Freshly steamed and succulent prawns

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

Night Market Along Lee Garden Plaza Hotel, Hatyai

BY THE TIME WE REACHED THE HOTEL, it was almost dark. This time round, we took a longer rest in the hotel... my girl might not need it but I certainly did!  After recharging around 80% of my body strength, we were ready to explore the streets again. Our hotel is really a strategic spot for us tourists.  The street vendors were all ready to boost their sales in front, at the side and along the whole stretch of street where we stayed.  Left, right, front... the place was filled with people and tourists like us... I could hear some of them speaking my dialect, we felt kind of at home instead of being tourists.... Besides the street vendors in front of the hotel, there was a night market just five minutes walking distance away from our hotel, Lee Garden Plaza.... Maybe they only opened during the weekends?  I am not sure about that.. .anyway, we were kind of excited to see all the bright lights along the street.... Come... Let's Go! We started from the beginning of the str
