well.. what can i say.. the M bug is in my belly. and its here to stay. i know i really should be working. its the end of the month for God's sake. but .. aiyah.. cannot la...
1. ida dragged me to her new mushroom house & mine.. and we went lampu shopping. i end up putting a deposit on a super cool lamp&ceiling fan. see.. the ceiling fan.. looked like a lamp that looked like a flower bud. when you turn it on.. it will "bloom" into a ceiling fan. when you turn it off.. it will go back to being a bud. trust me.. it may sound very girly.. but its not. its black for god's sake! here in the photo.. is the fan in action.. woohoo! i mms it to caveman, and to my delight.. he wants it in every room *LOL*
2. syed came back from bdo with the goodies from endar. wee! nice aint it? *grin* ni bukan baju kahwin.. so leh upload.. *LOL* i especially love the white lace with the silk batik.. nice innit?? i knoww.. i know... so what r u waitin for ?? just go already!
3. day 1 of manic diet..hmm... 1/2 bowl of mee hun sup. then i remembered seeing the photos AF 1 couple who got married last weekend..rosma&khai. arghh stress aku! do u know how much weight she has lost? i dunno i've lost count! probably half of her! dah la tu.. baju nikah tu.. eee... she took my sharifah kirana idea! that fluffy sleeve??! color pun sama???! now people are gonna think I took HER idea. *yawn* oh well... i still look better... *LOL*
4. caveman's off to labuan *sob* i miss him heaps already... man i hate this vicious cycle..

with the exams (that i keep failing) coming up.. i've put all bridezilla to dos on hold. until July 12th. i've done a lot anyways.. thanks to many who has lend a hand.. and a foul mouth (kidding.. kidding..*LOL*)
so peeps.. wish me luck in keeping my focus for the exam (no more poison pleaseeeeeeeeeee).
more wedding talks.. July 13th...!
if anyone knows how to pass the CCP Paper 5 at this age.. buzz me... *LOL*
caveman took me to cameron highlands, to get some new plants for his home, and to give us both an idea what might work for our own garden soon. i just couldn't resist, and after caveman giving me the OK.. i took my D60 out of the box..and snap away.
a newbie.. i still couldnt figure out the many settings.. aperture la.. ape la.. the technicalities are a bit overwhelming for me. but i loved it. luv it luv it luv it! and m pretty proud of the results (kembang, kempis *LOL*) ..
*note : more pixs here
as for the cameron trip.. i know caveman loves gardening.. i just never knew he loves it this much! he practically bought every pot of hydrangeas that we came across.. bunga or no bunga.. green, white, blue, pink.. all! i only manage to cilok 2 .. to prep it up for our mushroom house. and he bought a lovely green orchid.
i dont know when he'll even get to put all these in his garden.. for he just got a call he may be leaving tomorrow. sigh... here goes... m gonna miss him all over again..
as for the new baby.. i've put it back in the box.. it is part of my seserahan... *LOL* but it was fun & i cant wait to take it out again.. for the honeymoons maybe? *wink*

many may have read about his separation with his then wife (also part of the duo Ratu), Maia. rumors has it that it was due to the other Ratu, Mulan.. main kayu 3, 4 i dunno la kan.. (why was she Mulan kwok then.. now mulan jamila? someone update me?). so now.. maia has come out with a new line up.. featuring a singer named mey chan.
ok, so maybe the combo aint as hot as the with mulan.. or even with pinkan mambo.. but with dhani saying that his ex wife was being emotional is deciding the new line up & the new line up of Ratu (now known as Maia&Friends) wouldn't be as good as the former, without the ahmad dhani touch.. i think he's just being "jelek". he went all the way commenting even mulan, was prettier.. eee..! teruk la this guy..!
watch this video.. and u'll know what i mean.. (aku plak emo)..
well.. like their new song.. it was spot on...
emang gua pikirin...???

i love the Origins Modern Friction and Modern Fusion range.. i've used many scrubs and serums for skin renewals (from dermalogica to clinique to many others).. but this is probably the ones that work. i used to love origins cos it has really catchy names.. little do i know, it really works.
plus.. everytime i tried to buy both modern fusion and friction (especially fusion), it seemed to always ran out of stock. but now, m hooked. i'd travelled all the way to Penang when mine runs out. of course, i have to call in first to book it..can u believe that? booking for a serum? d'uhh!
made from rice.. i've stopped my SKII for this (which is also in another way.. rice).
for those looking for something to improve sallowness, unbalance, open pores, dull skin.. maybe you oughta give this a try.
its tried & tested... *wink*
reading hani's entry on my ultimate vice.. beauty products.. made me smile. m glad i gave her good poison. elise told me i may get the miss moisturizer of the year when we were in siem reap. cos the 2 lara crofts had the time of their life laughing at my packing list. ala.. tapi ade gak orang curi body whip aku tu.. *LOL*
so please dont try to imagine what is in my hantaran box for toiletries. its unimaginable *grin* m a sucker for moisturizers, scrubs, masks, mists, everything!
so before i headed for Bandung last weekend.. i made an online purchase via Bali Lulur. i never knew lulur is that complicated. due to the tight schedule, i couldn't western union her fast enough. but adry was nice enough to help me pay for it before we arrived. hee.. now i have 6 tubs of lulur in the bathroom.. to help my skin gleam like a fish on the big day *LOL* Bali Lulur has tons of goodies in the portal... i was just so tempted to splurge.. but i didn't want to add to the already merry heavy load.
then it got me thinking.. maybe i should start blogging bout all this.. m getting very2 sick of blogging about wedding.. another mention of the W word&i'll have purple pukes..
the last part of my bandung trip was so stressful, i dont think i'll ever blog it (hint : excess baggage of Rp2.1m teehee). but after all that's said & done.. it was one hell of a good trip.. n m glad i'll only marry once. insyaAllah *LOL* on that note.. endar told me someone from Malaysia wants to buy my wedding dress for Rp4,000,000 (RM1,400).. *wink* good business ei? hmm...
mama& i were going through all the stuff we got from bandung.. and abah was amazed how i manage to bring back all 600 pieces of doorgifts. mama said .. "dengan muncung yang panjang". i was moody on monday. dun wanna talk bout it. heheeh!
while busy unpacking & "belek"ing my stuff.. a call came in. tengok2.. no number.. just "call". if caveman was away.. this used to be my fav! turned out it was yummymummy. wee!! its good talking to her again.. felt like she's back home. she tried to scare me by telling me a ghost story. nahh.. didnt work.. it turned out funny instead. and no.. m not reading the link u gave me!
and yea.. if u've read her blog.. u'll probably read about her being over protective bout me & lis getting hitched. well.. that's just her.. and she means well. it doesnt bother me though.. cos i dont think anything will change. like i told her.. "oooo ko kawen bole?? aku kawen taakleh???" *LOL*
now m back to the office, with a huge migrain.. teehee...
but endar just texted me " baju nya kamu&mama udah siap cantiiikk....."
after a normal indo breakfast of nasi goreng.. we were informed that mas beni was involved in an accident.. "motornya ditambrak mobil bu" waduh... gawat man..! and.. Bu Titi was our chaperon for the day.. later we found out (not through her of course) that she was actually the owner of the Cihampelas Hotel chain! now.. should we.. or should we not tip? hmmmm *grin*
she took us to the tiny street of Tamrin.. where rows of shops selling fabrics by the kilo are. a particular shop sells tons of cute cottons (katun they call it) and i went nuts! literally nuts! i love these katun.. they make such cute baju kurung (if u need to buy ur way into the MIL dungeon.. this is it! i kid u not!) today, as i write these.. i regret not buying it all. at RM4.00 per meter.. the quality is at par with those selling at RM25 per meter back home.
next stop.. rumah mode again, of course. the peeps went wild with laces & shantungs *LOL* me.. i just sit back & watch em go nuts! i really didn't want to shop as i still have a lot in my list.. for the family. i tell you buying kain for the family is even more tiring then buying for myself! *grin*
we only did 2 shop (the same 2 shop i went to in february) and we're beat. finally at 4pm we head out to Kampung Daun for lunch. and drop by adry's place to pick up my doorgift. her house area... fab! on the hills.. the houses are amazingg...!! its good to see her again.. unfortunately her baby boy was asleep. sigh. oh yea.. that pic.. is the pic of the gift she made me. ofcourse, this one has been modified cos its flower came off due to the tumble & fumble of the backpack. it wont be fun if i show the real gift *wink* but adry.. geulis ga? bisa dijual sih ide aku.. kaya' kotak putih itu deh *grin*
along the way to kampung daun.. the rain didnt stop at all. it has been raining since we touched down in bandung. we told mama, bandung kaget ama mama! hehe. its like driving up to cameron highlands.. nurseries everywhere, with hydrangeas blooming like nobody's business!
kampung daun is simply amazing. i love the way they build the whole area. the wakaf, the landscape, the food..super! it was definitely worth driving up from the town. but alas, it rained so we couldn't take any pics. i only manage to get some on the wakaf.. inspiration mate, inspiration *berangan mode*
last stop... kartika sari.. for the yummy brownies kukus. ramai gile orang. sampai molen pisang aku pun dah abis. this time, i didnt even get them. even at the airport, they've ran out of it..
sigh.. it was so tiring. endar dropped by our room later that night to pick up the kain he's tailoring for us. i dunno why i fell into that trap.. but i guess if it costs the same to make it here.. and i know he has magic hands.. why not. i just need to pujuk my office mates to pick it up for me. hehehe!
well... what can i say.. i love bandung even more this time around.. muahahaha! lengthy posts are a bore.. so i'll split it up to multiple entries..
after the miscalculation of the boarding time *grin* the rombongan pah bedah was up&away to BDO on a saturday morning. i can see mama's face gleam with excitement *LOL*. upon arrival, our supir, Mas Beni.. was super nice. and funny.
we headed to the town for a late lunch after freshing up (Cihampelas 2 Hotel is an affordable, clean hotel smacked in the middle of Ci-Walk). i specifically requested for a lunch at Pak Chi Met cos the food is just yummy. ikan bakar gurame la.. ayam bakar la.. yummyyylicious sunda food at its best! and my ulti fav.. jus alpokat..*sigh*
Mas Beni dropped mama&i to Pasar Baru, for the *gasp* fitting. it was good to see Ika & Endar again. much hugs &kisses.. Endar showed me his masterpiece. i was soooooo flipped out when i saw my wedding dresses. it was nothing over the top. it was just the way i always imagined my wedding dresses would be. understated glam *LOL* and amazingly i could still fit in it. much thanks to God's creation of bustier *grin* Endar told me to lose 4kg of my butt *LOL*!
and the shoes... sigh... here's a pic of the shoes.. sneak preview.. the dress..? only the Chosen Ones get to see em before the big day *wink* but if the kasut is like that... the dress.. ngehngehngeh!
mama went nuts buying fabrics for herself.. which i must say.. is very2 nice. something she will never buy on normal basis. but with the strong poison by ika & endar.. she even end up tailoring it with Endar!
we picked up mbak ida&mbak ila at the FO's. i can see em going crazy, especially at the kids section. my vice? baby tees. but being tight on my budget.. i only bought a jeans&tee. and some stuff for adik, abah&caveman.
dinner was super at Warung Ampera.. they have probably the best bergedel ive had in my entire life! seriously.
it was fun being out with mama. i've never been on an outbound trip with her alone. and it was fun making fun at her. kadang tu kesian gak, tertinggal.. i keep telling her.. ma, jalan laju cket.. *LOL*
Wednesday, 16 April 2008
m all set for my trip to BDO. with the rupiah at about the same rate as the past couple of months, m as excited as ever! what? work? aiyah, cannot concentrate anymore la..! my backpack has made its way from the top shelf to the floor.. which only means 1 thing.. packing!! ee.. m soo excited.
but i know this time around i cant be on a manic shopping spree. everytime my mullah hits my fingers, the imaginary mushroom house appears *whine* but those FO.. arghhhh tempting!! and i dont think i will call my friend A'as to show me where i can buy curtain materials.. by the kilo. i kid you not.
but still.. the thought of my wedding dress (which would probably rocked 2 months ago at 51kg.. but now *panic*) .. and my fab turqoise doorgifts (the anticipation of excess luggage *moan*) just got me all excited. plus, this is mama&i first outbound trip together. m leaving all my peeps behind to spend some time with mama. poor abah, had to stay home. but m sure he liked the idea of some peace & quiet *grin*
plus i already got adry to buy me those lovely lulur.. *woohoo*
for those who's staying home this weekend.... enjoy ur weekend .. NOT!

when i was much, much younger.. i remember seeing them at my aunt's.. and my granma loves them. tapi, orang johor panggil hydrangeas "bunga zaleha". dont ask me why.
so lately, watching my mom's pots of hydrangeas bloom, made me want to have them in my own garden in the future. i dont want them in pots, i want to to be a huge shrub in my garden. biasala, berangan mesti la terer merer kan. i cant even feed a fish for God's sake! *LOL*
still, i've been studying them. manically. caveman too. amazingly, he loves them since he saw them at my parent's. so we've been analysing the whole process. like, where the hell will we plant it where it will get enought sun&shade at the same time? can we actually plant it as shrubs?
i read, planning for a garden (even if it is as big as your loo), is harder than planning for a whole house! i believe its true. i can sense it.
maybe should leave this to caveman. since he wont be allowed for any kinds of pets *LOL*

when i was in uni.. i always wonder when i see a somehow "mismatched" couple. sure kutuk punyela. my then big gob. we were always wondering, what on earth is that thing beside that babe???
as i grew older.. i begin to notice the more serious side of relationship has the same pattern too i.e. marriage. i start seeing couples where the wife is a hottie.. and the hubby.. nevermind (gob has shrink due to increasing volume of better things to do). i even see it in my friends.. i mean my peeps are hot.. and they had hot boyfriends.. but the ones they marry... hmmm...
its not until my closest peeps gets married..one after another..then i began to understand the science behind this. now look, m not saying their hubbies are anything but.. but to compare it relatively la kan to my hot hot shorties.. you pack of lads are one lucky lucky dude!! (and i love all of you for taking such good care of my peeps.. mwahmwah!)
today i came across this article.. it made sense. read on :
Why Beautiful Women Marry Less Attractive MenWomen seeking a lifelong mate might do well to choose the guy a notch below them in the looks category. New research reveals couples in which the wife is better looking than her husband are more positive and supportive than other match-ups.
The reason, researchers suspect, is that men place great value on beauty, whereas women are more interested in having a supportive husband.
Researchers admit that looks are subjective, but studies show there are some universal standards, including large eyes, "baby face" features, symmetric faces, so-called average faces, and specific waist-hip ratios in men versus women.
Past research has shown that individuals with comparable stunning looks are attracted to each other and once they hook up they report greater relationship satisfaction. These studies, however, are mainly based on new couples, showing that absolute beauty is important in the earliest stages of couple-hood, said lead researcher James McNulty of the University of Tennessee. But the role of physical attractiveness in well-established partnerships, such as marriage, is somewhat of a mystery.
The new study, published in the February issue of the Journal of Family Psychology, reveals looks continue to matter beyond that initial attraction, though in a different way.
McNulty's team assessed 82 couples who had married within the previous six months and had been together for nearly three years prior to tying the knot. Participants were on average in their early to mid-20s.
Researchers videotaped as each spouse discussed with their partner a personal problem for 10 minutes. The tapes were analyzed for whether partners were supportive of spouses' issues, which included goals to eat healthier, to land a new job and to exercise more often.
"A negative husband would've said, 'This is your problem, you deal with it,'" McNulty said, "versus 'Hey, I'm here for you; what do you want me to do?; how can I help you?'"
A group of trained "coders" rated the facial attractiveness of each spouse on a scale from 1 to 10, with the perfect 10 representing the ultimate babe. About a third of the couples had a more attractive wife, a third a more attractive husband and the remaining partners showed matching looks.
Overall, wives and husbands behaved more positively when the woman was better looking.
The finding "seems very reasonable," said Dan Ariely, a professor of behavioral economics at MIT's Program in Media Arts and Sciences and Sloan School of Management. "Men are very sensitive to women's attractiveness. Women seem to be sensitive to men's height and salary," said Ariely, who was not involved in the recent study.
In couples with more attractive husbands, both partners were less supportive of one another. McNulty suggests wives mirror, in some ways, the level of support they get from husbands.
"The husband who's less physically attractive than his wife is getting something more than maybe he can expect to get," McNulty told LiveScience. "He's getting something better than he's providing at that level. So he's going to work hard to maintain that relationship."
Men who are more attractive than their partners would theoretically have access to partners who are more attractive than their current spouses, McNulty said. The "grass could be greener" mentality could make these men less satisfied and less committed to maintain the marriage.
Physical attractiveness of husbands is not as important to women, the researchers suggest. Rather, wives are looking for supportive husbands, they say.
So it seems the mismatch in looks is actually a perfect match. "Equitable is unlikely to mean the same on every dimension," Ariely said during a telephone interview. "It just means that overall two people make sense together."as for me.. *grin* m a great believer of pretty boys.. until bestie told me "get a caveman!!"
and i owe her pulut kuning for that... *LOL*
it's a super weekend.. as i finally see some progress in the mushroom department..we even got some stuff for it. and found out.. the tiny wakaf we wanted.. doesn't cost a bomb either.. *wee*
it's a slow weekend.. torn between studying and studying the blue flower (photo).. but my pet project is a success i may say *float*
it's a sad weekend .. as caveman will be leaving in 2 weeks time. as i would be leaving for bandung next weekend.. it could be the last time i see him. until august.

as i get to work early today.. (this week direct wa bukak opes.. magic gile).. i opened bestie's blog. to my surprise.. tak bersawang lately.. woohoo! then i found out she's going back to work.. does that mean she might be missing my big day? *frown*
her next post (maybe we should start blaming her now hehe) was about her childhood house. which, was a big part of my childhood as well. i remember it like the back of my hand. every corner.. every detail. including the scary banana tree. funny, just last month i was driving by searching for a mushroom mansion for caveman&i... i couldn't find it!! i was in the right stretch.. but i just cant figure out which one *sobsob* this entry made me miss her even more. and i miss my tall munchkin too cos the three of us seemed to be attached too much to the bogey man at the banana tree.. teehee!
sigh.. i missed my childhood too. yep.. everything was simple. we didn't have much.. but in a way we have it all.. *emo..emo*
btw.. yummy mummy.. tall munchkin's house.. is muchhhhhhhh easier to find..! though the routes have all changed. *grin*
well.. i guess im the only who's still here. same house even. senanng kan.. for my old peeps to find me besok2 dah tua *LOL*
i get the same remarks over & over again .. "get out of this place".. "uve been here all ur life".. "tak boring ke".. when i was much2 younger (i.e. 23ish&stuck in a rut).. i would go "yela.. boringg.. blabla"...
maybe when i first got back here after uni.. it was boring as hell. i mean, my peeps are no longer here.. my uni peeps are soo far away from me. i dont know anyone but my parents. my then boyfriend was far. but as years passed.. this whole place changed bit by bit.. and m liking it here. i've made some really2 nice peeps.. and my workmates both we transfered to my office.. which made me really2 happy. although they suffered a bit at first, in adjustment *LOL* but they've both settled down & even got their own mushroom mansions of their own, right here in mushroom land a.k.a manjung *grin*
and yes, to add to her entry.. sitiawan is a great place to raise a family. to which, ive consistently reminded caveman. its waayyyyyyyyyyyyy better then selayang *LOL* i wish he'd made some really good mates too.. *winks*
thanks yummymummy for the wikimapia... but my house is not in it.. *frown* .. my office is! *LOL* but the best part is.. my InsyaAllah mushroom house is in! 1 whole lot of it! *chicken dance*
*umah soto best a.k.a kak ila*
i think i found bestie's house.. but m not too sure.. hmm...
1. Find the mushroom... checked
2. Negotiate the mullah requested by Gargamel.. checked
3. daydream.. checked.. and checked.. and still checking
4. outstanding bills.. outstanding taxes.. checked
5. sign the papers.. *wink*
6. more papers... *sigh*
7. waiting.. waiting.. MB's consent..? *OMG*
8. waiting.. waiting.... *sigh*

Blood pressure is the force of your blood pushing against the walls of your arteries. Each time your heart beats, it pumps out blood into the arteries. Your blood pressure is highest when your heart beats, pumping the blood. This is called systolic pressure. When your heart is at rest, between beats, your blood pressure falls. This is the diastolic pressure. Your blood pressure reading uses these two numbers. Both are important. Usually they're written one above or before the other, such as 120/80. If your blood pressure reading is 90/60 or lower, you have low blood pressure.
Some people have low blood pressure all the time. They have no symptoms and their low readings are normal for them. In other people, blood pressure drops below normal because of some event or medical condition. Some people may experience symptoms of low pressure when standing up too quickly. Low blood pressure is a problem only if it causes dizziness, fainting or in extreme cases, shock.the causes are aplenty.. but reading through it all.. i dunno which one causes mine. all i know.. it runs in my family.. especially the ladies.. my aunties, my grannies and my cousins.. majority of them have low blood pressure.. and it worsen as they get older.
since my doctor prescribed me with folic acid & B complex (busuk weehh!!), the bp has gone up 1 notch to 90/70. not bad ei. busuk pun busuk la. i dun wanna be fainting on my big day. *LOL*
hmm.... maybe i should look it up even more. and how to improve it. kesian wa tengok nenek2 wa.. sikit je pitam.. sikit je jatuh... ish.. tanaak la plak kan..

i used to have that email address when i was in uni. ofcourse it wasnt bla bla.. i just cant remember what it was. but the domain was real. my peeps would've known me too well & will say my pms is one of the worst. and you would think pms gets better (better, goes away completely) as you get older.
proud to say.. nearing the big 3 0 even (wait.. not so near yet ;) ), it hasn't *LOL*
as i get older.. the pms pattern shifts.. from the former emo moody iblis (still am la once in a while).. to the now really bad weight gain (yes, yes blame it on the hormons). and of course, the super bad migrains. which i had today... from 5am.. until now. *sigh*
but i didnt believe pms could cause weight gain. until lately since ive been watching my weight (huarghh i hate!! sejak bile aku jadik vain??) .. and through some research.. it is true. its something to do w/ insulin, magnesium, bla bla.. weight gain. sigh..
these two links from ultrapms and women health channel is worth reading..

my kid bro teased bout me buying a ticket to watch their reunion.. *LOL* .. takkannn..... !! but watching em now, and listening to their music all over again..made me smile. really. i love my childhood.
so watch this.. these 2 Access producers were a fan back then too.. and i think if besties & i were to do this.. we probably do the same (ngaku cepattttttttt!!!)
yep.. m up.. on a sunday.. at 7.30am..all dressed up.. and nowhere to go. on weekdays.. i cant even lift my eyebrows at 8.
a mini tiff.
a tiff i dont even know what. or how.
a tiff that left me sleepless, and teary eyed (yes, gaban shield dissapeared under darry's car shaped bunk)
a tiff that made me all emo at 7.30.. dressedd in red.. and soon in 5 second will have my 1st nasik lemak. donuts maybe after this. definitely cupcakes (i wish kue lives next door.. and yummymummy is in Fasa 2E (kan??) to make me red velvet.
Friday, 4 April 2008
so to all future brides (i know most who read this are yummies).. this link is useful. use their checklist. its easy to use.. and may prompt you the things you may forget.
m off for the weekend. a busy one still. its darry's 7th. sigh.
i miss my caveman *frown*
Thursday, 3 April 2008
no.. no.. its not time yet. but i havent hit the stove for a while now. i haven't even blogged bout foods for a while. today i cam across a magazine that has 4 main ingredient in all its recipes - potatoes (yumm!), tofu (yummy), and 2 others i cant remember *grin*. but i figured, takyah la beli, bukan ade dapor pun. hehheeh! *alasan*
but i think i should get mum's kitchen berasap again.. m losing my naked chef touch *LOL* so i created my fav links to all the considerably good recipe websites.
for future reference.
until further notice.
its time to service my aircond actually.. its been giving me funny smells the first few seconds upon ignition. knowing my nose is THE nose *grin*, i dragged myself out of bed 30mins too early, just in time to drop the car to the service centre & wait for kak ila to pick me up.
i had a gut feeling someone's gonna comment on how i look today..cos i was feeling blergh when i look in the mirror right before i jumped into the bat mobile.
true enough.. as i handed my keys to the Toyota chick.. she said.. "akak, akak expecting ke?"
yes.. expecting my car keys back. NOW!
nasib la m in such a good mood, cos i know m meeting kak ila's 4 year old cheeky princess, aqilah. so i told her.. (beli jiwa) " ha ah. tensen. makan banyak. V**i dah kurus ek? "
so she promotely la Herbalife. gile2 wa cakap lu. *LOL* macam tau2 je aku stress sebab nak amik baju pengantin tu.. 6 months in advance. biasala.. super planner. the seamstress texted me last week "baju kamu sudah siap semuanya. cantik sekali"
but i seriusly think the RM300++ per month.. is worth more somewhere else.
*sigh* time to hit the padang terbang
p/s : check out this video though.. pretty neat
Wednesday, 2 April 2008
over the weekend.. i found this book.. which, could be the answer to yummy mummy. slummy mummy i think, is what most mummies are.. unlike yummy mummy.. what most mummies wants to be.. (oklah, minus miss cairo the tai tai!)
but i didnt buy it cos i just bought this super fat interior deco book.. *swoooonnnn* but i think i should've gotten the book... oughta be funny.. like yummy mummy.
anyways.. this book reminded me of my friend.. not that she's slummy.. but she has 5 kids.. that's super mummy if you ask me. an truly a tai tai.. she's the kind who would open her mouth & hubby buys it all.. she used to tell me..someday.. i'll be in that position.. hahahah! i didnt believe her, of course, knowing caveman. haha!

Keep it Simple, Keep it Off
Keeping is simple is the best way to not only lose weight, but keep it off, too. There are some clear-cut certainties, rules, unchanging facts and formulas regarding weight loss that really never vary. If followed, you will lose weight.
So, for just a moment let’s look only at the facts - take emotion, psychology, and personal history out of the equation, and let’s look at the simple rules of weight loss.
Just the Facts:
1. If you spend more calories than you take in, you will lose weight. Just like your bank account, if you spend more than you put in, your bank account or, in this case your body, will shrink.
2. Adding (more) exercise, and not changing your diet at all, will cause weight loss only if you are burning more calories than you are taking in (as it states in rule 1). So if you are exercising enough to push the equation over to the deficit column (where you are basically in the red with calories - spending more than you are taking in), then you will begin to lose weight.
3. Reducing your food/caloric intake and not adding exercise will result in weight loss only if you have reduced food intake enough to tip the energy balance to the negative, whereby you are taking in less than you are expending.
4. Obviously, adding exercise, and reducing your caloric intake, will make it more likely that your equation will swing over to the negative – the weight loss side. And of course, the greater the difference between intake and expenditure, the faster the weight loss (or gain, depending on which way the equation swings).
To maximize your health and weight loss benefits, add exercise and reduce food intake.
I am not belittling the difficulty of losing weight, but there is a kind of simplicity to the plain facts. Still, few of us, if any, are able to be totally objective and mathematical about weight loss.
We have managed (or our society has) to make our bodies and our weight, emotional and social and psychological subjects, making it tough to take weight off simply, and harder to keep it off. And believe me, I understand, I am no different from you.
But I do realize one thing: Whether you are agonizing over losing 2 lbs or 200 lbs, looking at weight loss as a formula can provide you with some simple, practical, and effective steps that can be taken. And just knowing that this formula is fact, and works, just looking at the black and white of it and seeing that there are absolute and realistic steps that will lead to weight loss, may help someone, maybe you, who is struggling with body issues and weight loss.
So if you can, even for a brief period of time, separate out the discomfort, frustration, personal reasoning, and self resentment from prior attempts at weight loss that have failed, you may find the objective willingness to just keep moving forward in the equation – taking out a few calories here, adding a little exercise there, and so on – until the weight starts to fall away. And it will, if you stick to the rules.
I hope this helps you stay, or get back on, your road to better fitness.
Peace and Happy Trails-

then i bump into dee.. another bridezilla.. the last i saw her was also in october.. also at the same wedding.. good to see her losing her mind.. on CCP.. not on the wedding.. hehehe!
then when i got home yesterday.. i log on my ym.. and there was yummymummy.. though our webcam kept dying on us.. then i saw bubbles... sampai mimpi2..! i actually dreamt i was babysitting bubbles.. and it was an elephant park (mummys' fav animal LOL) and she kept jumping into the river where the elephants were bathing..! and i kept screaming (safeiaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa!!! ) and jumping in to drag her out. and she's not crying.. she was laughing! the thing is.. the elphie's doody were all in the river! yuck! but as i was talking to her.. i realised.. that's not bubbles.. cos bubbles is all grown up.. so the little bubble.. was bubble's little sister! hmm... ape tandanya tu yumsie??? could our little plan really coming true?? ngehngehngeh!
huh.. some kind of cuti.. not cuti at all if you ask me.. at the end of each day i'd be sooo tired & sleepy i cant lift a finger.
but it was fab seeing caveman again. i wasn't an emotional wreck as compared to the last time he signed off. that was 8 horrible months.. this was just 3 1/2 months of mini torture. hehe. and of course this time he came back with a sweet surprise that came in the tiffany blue box. woohoo! i felt all the hard work on the wedding and the mushroom house has paid off *LOL* which, i consistently remind him.. that i will be looking forward to another blue box the next round he comes back.. cos by then a lot more work would've been done on both wedding & mushroom. smart innit? *wink* yummy mummy... samaaa laa kite punyeee...!
everywhere we went (to get stuff for the wedding), the first they ask is.. "bile langsungnye?".. to which we will both laughed, cos the dates are forever changing. but it was fun going around stressing him out.. cos he never gets to see what i've been going through running errands like mad chickens..
so, we got all the seserahan stuff ready.. and the turquoise boxes (at last!and wayyyy below budget woohoo.. thanks dee!)
plus... caveman loved the mushroom house.. and he willingly drag himself to IKEA (something he never wanna do) .. and turn on his berangan mode no 7! (mine is 10, takleh celen la kan)
but today... *yawn* back to work.....
