Swimming Is Hers, Reading Is Mine

TIME FOR HER TO DESTRESS... BY SWIMMING!  While she swims, I read... that is the least I can do since I am not a swimmer and I wish I know how.  Why do I have water phobia?  I just cannot breathe when I am in a pool surrounded by the bluish water... why am I like that?  Swimming is a good form of exercise, all the limbs in our bodies are involved, from the head to the legs, from the left to the right, it is all good!  Is it too late for me to learn now?  Definitely a NO... but for me, it is a Yes!  I am so SCARED of water!

But I could do one thing here.... dip myself in the Jacuzzi which is around one foot deep, yeah... that will be fine for me... for now.... meanwhile, I can only "enjoy" the pool breeze with the sun setting right into my eyes....
Taken facing against the sun... it was after 6pm.... 
Too glaring for me.... and I walked around taking some pictures before I settled down...

 Instead of swimming, I followed the swimmer by footsteps.... North... 
South.... 
Facing me.... 
Un-facing me..... 
I cannot swim and that is the reason why she must Know.... 
And I am glad she does!

Well, I really wish I could join her in the water.... 
But for now, reading will be just FINE!

  1. She has the pool all to herself! So your company is good. They say do not swim alone, in case of cramps or something. So you are watching over her. As for YOU swimming...you do so much walking and other exercise that it is O.K. if you do not swim.

  8. I am not a strong swimmer. I would like to conquer my fear of the deep end due to a long standing accident. I miss swimming in a warm sea.

    1. Oh sea is more dangerous I guess..sometimes we do not know the currents in the water..

  9. Yes, swimming in the sea can be more dangerous but I take calculated risk. I swam a lot in the Mediterranean sea last summer. In one stretch of the sea, the water was freezing cold even on a hot blazing day. It was ok when one was active while thermal waves in another part of the Mediterrean sea kept the water at a comfortable temperature even in winter.

  10. Swimming is the best exercise that could tone whole body at one go. That would help us to look slimmer in the quickest way. There is a huge pool right outside my front door yet I hardly swim. Excuses excuses!

Our Orders From Afghanistan, Spanish And Australia

My Final post on the Food Festival in the Victoria Market on Wednesday night.... The atmosphere at the market was "enhanced" by the cheerful songs and music by a group band... It was indeed a merry evening filled with music-licous folk songs in the air... . Ok, how to find four seats in this crowd.... hmmmm....... Somehow we managed to... and these were what my boys brought back to our table.... Mexican rice with oysters... or is it Spanish rice?   Both are the same, I guess... LOL.... Afghanistan Food.... chunks of chicken meat with naan.... Brazilian food.... don't ask me what it is.... I just ate what was on the table....  But I am amazed by this giant burger....  ..... and what burger is this? They told me it is Crocodile Tail Burger! Meat from the crocodile tail?  Is it just a name or what... I really don't know... Took a few bites of it... and I am full!! Well, these were the food we

My Failed Project In Baking Mini Egg Cakes

FAILED THIS TIME..... I don't know why, I follow exactly the ingredients and the method written in her website but it was not successful.  Something went wrong somewhere but I don't think I want to try it again.  This recipe is called Mini Egg Cake which is supposed to be soft, airy, light sponge cake but the way I made them, they turned out hard and crusty cake.   If I try again one day, I will half the portion... cos I like to eat these traditional egg cakes.... The Ingredients...  No point putting the recipe here since I failed..  LOL...  The portions of this recipe....  It looked very promising when I put them into the oven.... Even when they were in the baking process... they look good, aren't they? LOL...  I was so happy just by looking at the mini egg cakes in the tray....  And after they were let out... my heart sank....  The minute I took them out from the tray, I knew... Hard at the top...  Tak Jadi = Failed.... Now come to t

Home Cooked Dishes

NOT MUCH HAPPENING... and lazy too.... My neighbour gave me half pumpkin and I have been keeping it for a couple of days before I finally decide what to do with it.  I cook it into small chunks and sauteed it with minced meat, okra and basil leaves.  Yes, it would be great to put in some small cilipadi but unfortunately, I did not find any in my fridge.  Steamed a bowl of rice and that was meal for dinner.... One dish meal....  Pumpkin reminds me of sweet potatoes...sweet after cooking... Another dinner meal consist of Sambal Fish, black pepper met and a hard boiled egg  I only boiled the egg, the other two dishes were "sponsored" by my neighbour... LOL...
