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... 
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 do so much walking and other exercise that it is O.K. if you do not swim.

    1. Oh dear, I hope she wont get cramps, I really do not know how to swim.. Yes, I prefer walking to anything but swim... hahaha...

  2. Beautiful sunset! The water is so inviting, I want to also jump into the pool!

  3. This place looks familiar till i saw the label, i know where, lol...

  4. You didn't swim? Why? Good to exercise a bit.

  5. You and I are in the same boat. LOL!

    1. Oh dear, we cannot save each other then! LOL...

  6. I dont swim too. Hubby keeps asking to me to learn. He wants to teach me hoe to swim. Haha.

    I love going into the pool. Can do some aqua exercise. Good for body. Thats what I do when kids are in the pool.

    1. Aqua exercise? Yes, good to swim but I think I have to give up learning..

  7. Such a nice place! Where's this place?

  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!

  11. good that you ensure that she knows how to swim though you cannot swim. i can't swim too.

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 …
