How To Keep On Top Of Your Health

In this day and age it can be very difficult to make sure you stay healthy. There’s so much advice being flung at us all from a thousand different directions that it makes it hard to know what exactly we should do. Luckily, there are some basic life tips that we should all follow in order to make sure that we stay fit and healthy as long as we can…
Stay Active

First of all, make sure that you stay active. There’s no better way to get unfit and to gain weight than by taking up residence on your couch and rarely moving! If you aren’t particularly into playing sports then that’s totally okay – you can get fit in another way. Take a friend along to a yoga or pilates class if you want some gentle exercise that will strengthen your core. If you’re a little more into dance and having fun then why not try out a Zumba class? Zumba mixes aerobics with hot salsa dance moves and will help you get in shape and have fun at the same time. You should also make sure that you walk as much as you can – ditch that car when you don’t need it and get your legs moving!
Manage Your Chronic Conditions
If you have a chronic condition like depression, asthma or arthritis it’s important that you manage it well. Chronic pain or discomfort can be really difficult for your mental health and it’s crucial that you don’t try to push it under the rug and just get on with your life. You need to learn to live with your chronic conditions – so make sure that you use your preventative asthma inhaler and that if you have a mental health condition, you listen to your body and your mind and you treat yourself kindly. Taking time out from the rest of your life to relax every now and then does not make you weak.
Check In With Your Doctor

If you aren’t feeling well, then it’s important to make an appointment with your doctor. There’s no point in soldiering on even when you feel awful – the people sitting close to your hacking cough at work definitely won’t appreciate it, and it’ll also mean that you won’t get better as quickly. If you can’t get an appointment, try out an app like Babylon, where you can talk to a doctor using your phone. After that, you could have another try at going to see your own doctor for even more advice.
Cut Yourself Some Slack

Finally, it’s important to make sure that you relax when you can. Even if you’re a busy parent, do your best to take some time off from your kids every now and then to spend some time by yourself and to do what you enjoy – take a look around an art gallery or go to see a movie or spend an afternoon with your new book curled up in the corner of your favourite coffee shop. It’s important to take care of yourself in order to be healthy and happy.

  1. I am trying to find some Chinese Remedy to cure headaches, instead of taking panadol, I think Chinese Medicine is more healthy though the effect might be slower

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

UPHILL....

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?

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…
