A Balanced Lifestyle

With my "travel mode" on for the past few months, I have been busy going here and there.  Now after all the traveling, it is good to be back in back in my home sweet home again!  I have been busy getting my house cleaned up after my absence. I am also trying to do some healthy home cooking after consuming so much of arteries clogging food during my travel.

As you all know from the postings on my blog, I have been savoring and indulging in lots of mouth-watering food for the past few months. Not only that, now that I am back in my hometown, I have been going out daily with my friends to "catch up" and eating all the local food which I have missed while I was away.  Needless to say, I have put on weight, not surprising since I have been eating too much and now is the time for me to shed some of my body fat.

Actually, I have already done my homework on how to lose weight. Let me share with you what this website says about the types of food that can speed up weight loss. The words that caught my eyes are the food and speed! This sounds good to me.

Top 10 super foods that will speed up weight loss:

1.      Grapefruit – Eating half a grapefruit will minimize my appetite and it helps to melt away the fat in my body. Grapefruit is rich in Vitamin C. I like grapefruits.
2.       Black Pepper - Black pepper enable weight loss and stimulate digestion. It increases metabolism and stimulate my stomach. I am going to start adding black pepper into my cooking.
3.       Cinnamon – It lowers blood sugar levels and help suppress appetite. It can be added to my hot drink, like coffee or tea.
4.       Eggs – Eggs help to suppress my appetite, low in calories and contains protein.
5.       Apple – It is rich in fibre and water. I enjoy eating crunchy apples.
6.       Blueberries – These help to melt away the fat and best eaten as salad.
7.    Quinoa - It will not raise my blood sugar. After eating quinoa, I will feel satiated and crave less sweets and carbs.
8.       Chili – These suppresses appetite. I love spicy food!
9.       Coffee – It increases metabolism and melts away the fat.
1.   Vegetables – These are rich in nutrients, fibre and lots of vitamins so I will be losing weight the healthy way.



Having said all these, don't you think this is an easy way of losing weight? Let’s see how soon for me to see a difference in my weight.  But of course, most of all, I need to exercise at the same time, not just intake, output is important too.  Most important, do bear in mind that everything must be balanced, eat moderately and exercise regularly.  :)

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

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....

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

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
