Combat My Cholesterol By Exercising And EATING

MY LIFESTYLE NEEDS TO BE CHANGED...  All eating and no exercise won't do, I tell myself.  Alright, it is from the doctor's advice too, I need to refer back to him in three months time to check my cholesterol level again, at the moment, it is on the high side.  I know I have not been exercising regularly for the past half year, everything is moderately fine except for too much meat and lack of exercise, that is all I can say.

Now I am back in Ipoh, I cannot be lazy anymore.  Starting from Monday, I will resume my line dancing classes again, this time my dancing will be more "robotic" in the sense that no more "curly moves" as in the previous year before my fall.  For now, my dancing moves will be to a certain level, will be Hard moves and not refined, get what I mean?  LOL...

Having said that, I started off my day by waking up as early as 6.30am, went to the toilet with blurry eyes (reminded me of my workaholic days) and I was out from the house by 7.30am ... to where?  To the Green Green Grass of Polo Ground!  Am I a Good Girl.... Today?  ahemmmm.... 
The sun is not even out yet.... 
And by the time I finished 2.5 km of walk, the sun was about to rise up.... 
I was already sweating good... 
Wonder whether my cholesterol went down or not at that moment of time... 
Alas... my friend wanted Telur Goyang on Bread... 
I followed the temptation to this place in old town where they served good Eggs on Bread.. 
This is the food court... 
And I was shocked to discover later that I forgot to take the pictures of our breakfast!
Was I that Hungry??? 
How could I forget??? 
After the light breakfast, we took a few pictures before we left... 
The City Town Hall facing the food court... 
The State Mosque in Old Town Ipoh...
Birch Memorial Clock Tower.. .
And Me... with the two kids... 
And Me again.... without the kids... 
Well, that was not all... 
We went for our second breakfast since this one was just a light one... 
Well, what we had was fantastic... Hakka Noodles!
How to slim down and lower my cholesterol like that??
hahahaa...

  4. The more recent articles say that high cholesterol levels need not be bad - it was some conspiracy to sell all the medicine. There is even a law suit against "lopid" for the devastating side effects.

    Still, it is good to control what one eats - moderation is the key, now the slogan going round is "What is fresh and natural is good, cannot be bad!" And yes, exercise! I get mine from gardening.

Mini Birthday Celebration At August Healing, Ipoh

GETTING HEALED AGAIN... this time four of us went to August Healing for other sweet and savoury delights.  This time when we went up to the little cafe, the tables were all occupied except for one.  Next time we must not go during lunch time.  Mistake....  Anyway, we managed to get a table near the window while waiting for another two of my friends to arrive.  First time visit for them and I hope they like the food there as much as I like them.  We ordered three different varieties to share as we had a heavy breakfast in the morning....  Which shall I choose? Berries bread pudding today....  Forgot what this is called....  Garlic honey scones...  Coffee for my friends.... As for me, I had Chamomile tea....  We ordered one croissant to share.... Smoked duck and omelette fillings... Full to the brim... RM15....  Quiche again.... different fillings this time... RM15 And a Happy Birthday piece of cheese cake... RM14.. Though just a few varieties, we were very full.... For dinner, I just ha

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... 

Freshly Baked With Love From Breadlady

BUNS AND PIES... freshly baked with Love.... printed on a brown paper bag, delivered by her handsome son right to my doorstep!  LOL.... Saw it on Facebook, one of my friends put up the fresh curry buns she ordered.  Yours truly saw and salivated and the next thing, I have the details I needed.  During the weekdays, the Breadlady has different kinds of buns and on Saturdays, she makes shepherd pies.  Since I got the details on Friday, I quickly messaged her and ordered 5 packets!  No, I did not eat them all, I ordered for my friends too, they have the same common interest as I do.  LOL...  ' Each set of shepherd pie comes with 2 fresh buns costing RM15.   I like her packing.... Brown paper bag with this slogan... Freshly baked with love...  The pies were still warm when they were delivered to right to  my doorstep with no extra charge... So nice! This was my lunch on Saturday.... I like the buns too...fresh and soft... One is filled with cranberries and apple.. And the other one is
