Yesterday When I Was Young...

There are two new things I found out about myself during the past weekend....

One... I cannot drink anything that have the word TEA in them... I thought I was only allergic to Chinese tea but after last Friday stint with the "girls," any type of TEA will not agree with me ....  peach tea ke, ice lemon tea ke, green tea...... etc....   I must remember that!

It is no joke to have a sleepless night.... tossing and turning in bed till my eyes were tired of being "CLOSED!" Now I understand what Insomnia means.... terrible!

Two.... I am confirmed "stamina-less."  Need to confess that my house was left "untouched" for 10 whole days.  So can you imagine... the windows, tables, floor... aiks... it was a BIG relief for me when my guest bloggers did not come into my house...  pheww.....  LOL.....

So... what I did on Sunday left me panting and feeling nausea!  After more than two hours of cleaning and mopping, I nearly wanted to pengsan faint when I reached the kitchen....Immediately I stopped.... I rested.... and I realize that my stamina has long gone...

I finally come to terms that I am not as "young" as I used to be.... anymore.....

  1. No lah...not the tea. You had so much fun, the adrenaline rush... That got you so excited and happy that it was hard for you to unwind and go to sleep...but tea will keep me awake as I will have to wake up many times at night to go to the toilet and ease myself. Tsk! Tsk!

  3. When you drink chinese tea try not to soak the tea in the hot water for a long period.. maybe just a 2 mins and then pour out the chinese tea..
    if you soak it longer the cafeinne will come out.. try it..

  9. Please don't mind me saying this but maybe it is a good idea to get a medical test done, just to be sure everything is ok or if there needs some attention.
    I highly doubt just by drinking tea, you are left sleepless.

  12. I guess it has to do with tolerance. As I age, I find I can drink caffeine up until bedtime and still be able to sleep. But when I was young, I could not.

  13. Nxt time when you can't sleep, try to pop one anti-histamine. It sure can make you sleep like a baby. But don't get addicted ya!

    Ps. I am naughty to teach u this. :P

  17. House cleaning wouldn't have to do it all in a day. Try schedule the task and finish it in few days. Else get a temporary cleaner to help you :).

  23. I hate insomnia. Thank Goodness, eversince I learn yoga many years ago, I do not have this problem anymore. May be yoga makes us practise lots of deep breathing that helps soothing our mind.

  24. Hummm. tea, I stayed awake all night, with a basic tea..ha. I'm not a tea drinker either.

    ReplyDelete
  25. I dislike tea. And it won't make me stay awake.... I still sleep like a log with caffeine overdose. You stayed awake perhaps due to overjoy?

    And 10 stretch days of untouched house, no wonder you were worn out! I will~

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 …

Caring And Sharing At Limestone, Regal Lodge, Ipoh

IMPROMPTU GATHERING.... Nothing was planned beforehand, it was only at the last minute that we received call to have lunch at Limestone Cafe, inside Regal Lodge.  It was my first time there to have set lunch.  The menu prices were reasonable, around RM15.90 for the main dish, RM3 for a bowl of soup and RM2 for ice cream.  Other than that, coffee, tea and soft drinks are free.  
We were there not so much for the food but for the ambiance... we practically had the whole cafe to ourselves during that lunch hour.  Only one or two tables were occupied and we spent more than two hours there since it was a Friday long hour lunch for my working colleagues.  After a few months absence from me, it was wonderful to catch up with my ex-colleagues again!  
I was super hungry by lunch time and I felt like eating almost anything in the menu. We ended up ordering one main dish each and then sharing them with one another so that we could taste a bit of this and that..... 
I felt like eating Aglio Oli…

Famous Wanton Mee At New Hoong Kee, Bandar Sri Damansara

BREAKFAST FEAST..  Best meal of the day is always my first meal because I know I am able to tuck in as much as my stomach can accept.  I eat a lot in the mornings and then slowly dwindle by the end of the day.  As the saying goes, eat like a king in the morning and like a pauper in the evenings.  This is what I normally do nowadays, not because I wanted to, but it is my own body system that tune me this way.  Though I deny I am old but the body says otherwise... LOL...

On this morning, we went to New Hoong Kee in Bandar Sri Damansara, my sibling said this is currently his favourite place.  And after trying, I know why.... the food we ordered, all turned out good and tasty, even the curry reminded me of my good old days!
Managed to catch the name otherwise I wouldn't be able to tell this story now...  My type of curry... I can go without the chicken... Just the other ingredients will do fine for me.. I like the way they cook this curry... Heard the BBQ pork is tasty too... melt in …
