My Life As I see It

IT IS NOT JUST RELAXATION IN JOHOR... it is my new phase of life where I also work but only thing is that it is a different type of workload, not as in this picture here where my colleague captured it without my knowledge....
Slogging at work for the past 37 years?
Actually I enjoy office life, seriously....
If my work has no pressure, I don't think I will opt for retirement...
The office environment, my colleagues.. they are great!
Yes, due to old grey cells, I have to give them up... 
No, it is not about putting up legs up and relaxing after retiring from office...
It is also about housework!
Each day I do this... hanging and hanging...
After a hard day's work in the house, I pamper myself...
Yes, I admit I do enjoy food especially desserts....
They are just too irresistible!
But after the sweet calories, it is time to shed them off...
As my girl, everything must have a balance... In and Out...
 Traveling is one of the reasons I opt out..
I feel I am no more a "spring chicken" and there are so many places I love to go and visit...
And retirement age at 60 is just too far ahead...
I always remember what my friend told me...
Three main points...
If one has the time, money and health, do not wait any longer!
Go while we are still healthy....
Yes, I agree with that completely!

  6. Indeed! Life is too short to waste cooped up in the office day in day out, no time for anything else, but of course, if one needs the money, one does not have a choice. Otherwise, life is best spent resting, relaxing, doing things that one has to or wants or loves. I love my life as a retiree...

  7. I think there are more work to do after retirement, housework and there is no end to it if you really want to do it or else close one eye. Just that there is no pressure and you can work at your own pace. Love that bowl of desserts.

  8. Doing housework is more tiring than going to the office.. I do more at home when I'm at home.. At work, at least by the time I come back already 7pm, hehe..

  9. Different kind of work. More relax and more times to do the things you enjoy.

  10. Actually, logically speaking, your housework workload should not increase post-retirement. After all, you have been getting by for the past 37 years without trouble. Just because you are retired does not mean you should do more housework, does it? Maybe you can try to establish the same routine with housework that you used to do, and use the time where you used to be working to do what you really want to do. ;)

Mini Birthday Celebration At August Healing, Ipoh

GETTING HEALED AGAIN... this time four of us went to August Healing for other sweet and savoury delights.  This time when we went up to the little cafe, the tables were all occupied except for one.  Next time we must not go during lunch time.  Mistake....  Anyway, we managed to get a table near the window while waiting for another two of my friends to arrive.  First time visit for them and I hope they like the food there as much as I like them.  We ordered three different varieties to share as we had a heavy breakfast in the morning....  Which shall I choose? Berries bread pudding today....  Forgot what this is called....  Garlic honey scones...  Coffee for my friends.... As for me, I had Chamomile tea....  We ordered one croissant to share.... Smoked duck and omelette fillings... Full to the brim... RM15....  Quiche again.... different fillings this time... RM15 And a Happy Birthday piece of cheese cake... RM14.. Though just a few varieties, we were very full.... For dinner, I just ha

Two Dishes One Soup Dinner

AUNTIE'S SIMPLE COOKING... for dinner on one evening.... Defrosted a piece of cod, my last piece in the freezer besides another few more pieces of other types of fish.  I think I consume the most fish this year, never bought so many types of fish before.  Maybe it is made easier for me this year cos of the online shopping at Gracious, cleaned, vacuumed and free delivery above RM50.   My last piece of cod.... A plate of greens called Yau Mak...  Not so sure what it is called in English And chicken herbal soup....  My complete meal for one evening....  As usual, I do not take much rice... Or perhaps I did not take rice at all for this meal....  LOL... 

Freshly Baked With Love From Breadlady

BUNS AND PIES... freshly baked with Love.... printed on a brown paper bag, delivered by her handsome son right to my doorstep!  LOL.... Saw it on Facebook, one of my friends put up the fresh curry buns she ordered.  Yours truly saw and salivated and the next thing, I have the details I needed.  During the weekdays, the Breadlady has different kinds of buns and on Saturdays, she makes shepherd pies.  Since I got the details on Friday, I quickly messaged her and ordered 5 packets!  No, I did not eat them all, I ordered for my friends too, they have the same common interest as I do.  LOL...  ' Each set of shepherd pie comes with 2 fresh buns costing RM15.   I like her packing.... Brown paper bag with this slogan... Freshly baked with love...  The pies were still warm when they were delivered to right to  my doorstep with no extra charge... So nice! This was my lunch on Saturday.... I like the buns too...fresh and soft... One is filled with cranberries and apple.. And the other one is
