Motivation Course And Mango Chutney

AFter the first two hours separated from each other during the motivation course, Elin and I got back together. That was a relief for me! Then the Talk continued... somehow along the way, the lecturer's voice became more and more monotonous...causing both of us about to doze off, (as far as I know, I was!) To keep myself from falling asleep, we ended up talking about food..

Being a food blogger, she told me to eat healthily, starting with breakfast, I should stop taking noodles or fried sinful food. Instead I should start taking instant oats with wolfberries each morning and that's It!! AND for lunch, we should take some proper meal like chap farn (economy rice) and that's it too!

I just went to buy some instant oats...yes, I truly did.. I start tomorrow and see how long I can last (doing that, I mean) :)

Few months ago, Elin made this special breakfast for me, bread with mango chutney....(mango paste) Wow... they were so so nice!!

three slices of bread, enough or not?

just look at the generous fillings!
mango plus plus...


  1. Huh...the course was THAT bored ah? Thought it's supposed to be a motivational course...kakaka

  2. Hah, next month we shall see a slim and sexy Reanaclaire....LOL!

  3. wow... mango filling... looks nice!

  4. wei, tat bread stuffed with mango looks good le. hmmm interesting le! but sinful food are always the nicest. darn!

  5. pete: i wonder for how long i can drink that! maybe one or 2 days.. hangat hangat ayam..

    irene: yeah, darn, i would say.. how come we love to eat ah?

  6. waa waa Mango Chutney! First time I hear and see this! Making me drool now.

  7. *Instead I should start talking instant oats with wolfberries each morning*

    You talk to the instant oats for what? You shud be eating them Claire :D

    Don't eat like me cukop.. Wanna know what I eat? Great.. coz I dont even know what I eat!!!

  8. Yep, heating healthy is always a little boring, I think. I don't know about you, but it seems when I try to eat healthy, I crave the sinful foods more than ever.
    Good luck with your venture.

  9. LV: yeah, first time for me too and i love it!

    merryn: yoooooo... the heat la. the HEAT!!! it is getting into me, now i m wondering, is it the heat from the weather or from Cleff's post???? :p

    patty: yes, boring boring , that was why i said how long that food can last me.. after 2 days,. i might call it quitS! lol..

  10. I love noodles in the morning! Gee! Haven't had breakfast - better go and cook myself some. Now, where's my made-in-Sibu Mee Daddy? LOL!!!

  11. waaaaaaaaaaa.....look delicious leh...send me hhaaaha kidding2

  12. Haha...I too have sat through courses and such that have made me doze off or almost doze off! This photo makes me hungry! I eat oatmeal almost every morning for breakfast as its good for lowering cholesterol. I add brown sugar to plain oatmeal or buy instant oatmeal with cranberries and flaxseed.

  13. stp: the other night i cooked some maggi for my girl and myself and she said YUCKS!! why? i added in some uncooked bacon and it spoilt the soup...heheheh...

    manglish: ok ok,... alamat apa?? :)

    cheryl: u too? lol.. so i m not the only one who felt bored!

  14. Oats never work for me. Lemme know if it does for you. I'll get hungry within two hours of oat breakfast. Not value for money also! Already lah mahal, tak kenyang some more...hahah...nothing beats tai pau in the morning. X

  15. wenn: if u like mango, then superb!

    fely: i have yet to try, this morning fren ajak me for half boiled eggs already! no oats,...

  16. Hm,,i wondering how it taste the bread with the mango chutney..

    From what u said, must be yummylicious. A good and healthy breakfast to start off with...OAT

  17. i also want to eat healthily but it's not easy when u always dined out.

  18. mommyling: imagine..hehehe,,thick sweet mango with a bit spicy and a bit sourish too.. oh, didnt manage to eat oats la.. took bread with 2 half boiled eggs..

    chrisau: yes, i get what u mean.. unless my office closed up the gate, then i can get to eat oats :)

  19. I am a foodie myself and love reading such food related posts.Like food related discussions...One should always look at eating healthy but i can understand how hard it is to give up on those junk food.The food in the picture looks yummy!!

  20. you know what, last time i use to think i cannot take oat, impossible i will take oat and now for nearly 2 months, i'm drinking oat, but with coffee!! LOL!!! Just mix oat into coffee and drink it, better than nothing right? Need to "take care" my heart. :(, i love eat sinful food.

  21. website design: so u r a food lover as well..welcome to the club.. :)

    annieq: i have yet to try la..i hope i can sustain eating that each morning.. need to, i m not young anymore..

  22. agree a health body start from breakfast.

    ere.. never try mango bread before... so nice???

  23. Good for u claire. Despite wanting to follow your footsteps, I just find it so hard to have oats for breakfast. Either it is Mamee or normal noodles by the roadside!

  24. wahhhhhhh.... mango bread... i never try on it... look great! XD

  25. I can relate to you. I doze off too when on seminars or sort of especially if the subject is not interesting.

    I used to eat instant oats too but didn't manage to eat it for the whole month as advised coz I miss the usual filipino breakfast of Tapsilog. (fried beef w/ fried rice and fried egg.) Really sinful eh!

    Thanks for the visit Claire! Will be back here soon.

  26. Look healthy and of course budget also..stay healthy and keep fit kah that? hehehe

  27. chvoon: i love to try new food stuff.. and that was nice, yes.. something different from our bottled jams..

    cy: I hope i can keep up with the oats.. maybe starting on monday instead.. :)

    paul: it was great!

    bengkee: let me tell u, whenever i attend seminars, i tend to go into dreamland! that is why i dont like to attend...

    C.alv.B: not that bread, but quaker oats and wolfberries.. hehehe..

  28. Bread with mango chutney for breakfast! Wah, so delicious! I also want! Can courier to me? haha!

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 here in …

Getaway Weekday Trip To Cameron Highlands


It has been two years since I last made an overnight trip to Cameron Highlands.  It was an impromptu trip, we only talked about it a couple of nights and the next day, all was arranged and done.  My friend rented the apartment from her niece, for two nights, we got a good deal, each of us only paid RM50 for a two nights stay.  Of course, it was an off peak season, otherwise we could not get the good deal offer.  LOL.... My friends planned everything from A to Z, they even went marketing to buy all the food stuff needed, pre-cooked some to take up for our steamboat dinner in the evening.  The weather was very cooling and nice, we had to wear our jackets especially in the evenings and mornings. 

Started off our journey by eating something light from Ipoh cos we have planned to take something good for lunch in Tringkap.  On the way, we stopped at a place called Green View Garden for some desserts before proceeding for our lunch.  Hmmmm... desserts before main meal?
Our fir…

Gathering At Top Grade Hot Soup, Ipoh

HOT SOUP ON RAINY DAYS... Yes, nowadays it pours, almost every day and in the late afternoon.  So cooling that I do not need to switch on the air con these days.  For cooling days, it is best to drink hot soup but do not land into one, okay?  LOL.. 
A few of my classmates planned an evening out at Top Grade restaurant at Festival Walk area.  I did not know that Ipoh has a branch, my first time was taken in Penang.  The boss told us that they have a branch in Ipoh, that sounds great!  I like their soup cooked with coconut water, the sweet taste is there... but funny, I don't know it is me or the soup, I still find the one I ordered in Penang is much nicer than this Ipoh branch.  I tried two times in Ipoh, my verdict?  The soup is still better in Penang.. okay, Penang wins!  The coconut soup base looks like this.....  Consisting of chicken, pig stomach, chestnuts, corn, red dates...  It cost RM58 since I am a member.. otherwise it is RM78... Others are add-ons...  And the soup gang…
