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!

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
