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.

Chinese New Year Reunion Dinner At San Jose 2022

TABLE FOR FOUR... We had our own reunion Chinese New Year dinner on Monday evening.... we made a simple one, just hot pot at home.  All we have to do is to clean the vegetables, get everything defrosted... and the hot pot boiling with a packet of seasoning.  They sell a lot of hot pot seasoning over here, from tomato soup to shrimp and chicken soup, I just threw in the whole packet of paste.  No doubt not so healthy but it is so easily done....  As usual, Chinese New Year won't be CNY without a plate of Loe Sang...  No crackers so I put in a few pieces of Tacos... LOL... Most important is the sauce....  The apricot, plum sauce and honey makes it right.... And our dishes for the evening..... We ate too much shrimps the day before so we omitted for this evening.... Simple and yet satisfying meal for our Reunion Dinner....

Three Hours City Tour At Ensenada, Mexico

A THREE HOURS CITY TOUR when we embarked in Mexico on the second morning.   My sister booked the three hours city tour in Ensenada, Mexico, a van came to pick us up from the port.  Ensenada is the border of Mexico and it reminds me of Hatyai, a border town too between Malaysia and Thailand.  We were taken to a shopping area where we must haggle for the goods.  LOL.. Yes, something common in my own country... Anyway, we did not buy anything for ourselves... just a wooden handmade truck for my grandson which cost $8usd.   Nothing much to shout about on this three hours excursion, I was so sleepy on the way back to the ship that I dozed off and only awaken when we were driven through the town.  All in all, I just wanted to step onto Mexican soil and I would give this a miss if I were to go on this Mexico cruise again.  LOL... At the open area shopping walking towards the Blowhole... This is La Bufadora Blowhole, an amazing natural marine geyser that is capable of shooting water over 60 fe

Now I understand the word of Full Commitment when it comes to taking care of baby... seriously, I have to be fully commited and occupied by this little cheeky fella who is now going to be his 10th month soon.  Wow... time flies, when I first came, he was just slightly over four months... that being said, it is soon time fo rme to pack my bags and leave.  LOL... My 6 months being a babysitter is soon over... and did I say I can hardly wait?  NO, NO... I love my job here and I am going to miss my baby tremendously!  I only don't miss his cries!  LOL...  OK, by the time I write this post, Chinese New Year is over, it is now the 4th day of CNY.  Two days before the Lunar New Year, my daughter-in-law and I cooperated fully and baked a few types of cookies.  Looking back at these pictures, I dare say that we did a good job... not on the cookies but at least we had a great time bond
