After a month of living like a lost little sheep, finally the official notice of Yoga Zone taken over by a new management is up. No doubt, we are still looking lost. Questions start popping up among practitioners. Will they (new management) still honor our membership especially those signing up Lifetime Membership? Will they obsolete the massage voucher we are holding? Where shall we stand after this? Shall just wait and see how thing goes after a week. Keeping my fingers and toes cross now.
It is hard for me to decide. The memory space in my laptop is running low now. There are two option to choose. One – Is it cheaper to buy a external hard disk or is it cheaper and advisable to add the laptop memory? I am not a IT geek but does low memory contribute to slow pc? I do experience some slow loading and process on my laptop. Hope someone can help!
It is barely 3 months to year end. I have started planning for our family holiday again. With 3 little toddler in hand, the first thing that came to my mind is Disneyland. I have read a lot on the internet and also make a little comparison on the theme park. Orlando vacations may looks the far most interesting but our budget would not allow it. Maybe we should just settle for Hong Kong Disneyland since High School Musical tour is there!
I attended my first Yoga Dance class by Deepak yesterday. You can rest assured the word coming from someone who has two left feet. This is one truly wild yoga class I’ve been to. I have never felt so free of inhibitions, self-consciousness when I was dancing in his class. You should see the way he sway that butt. Gosh! I can just stop dancing and watch him. He almost swept me away and my heart just melt into deep relaxation.
At the beginning, I was not very comfortable and rather shy with free expression. But hey, everyone is into it. Just close my eye, deeply relax my body and mind with the gentle stretching then soar into a liberating transformational dance journey. I hadn’t even realized the emotional toxins and burdens that I was carrying. I felt much more lighter after all the hot stomping, jumping and swaying. Everyone look so joyful and rejuvenated after the class. Time sure pass by fast and we was taught some Bollywood movement. I left the class with the exotic Bollywood beat rhythms still playing in my mind. My favourite part would be the, “Maria? MARIA!” *tump, tump, tump*
*head still bobbing while writing this post*
*tUMP, tUMP, TUMP!*
Do you know what is the thing that I miss most in U.S.? It is the outlet shopping! I can never had enough of that. Branded clothes like Guess, Polo, Levi’s, Nike, Gap, Osh Kosh, etc is so much cheaper compare to Malaysia. Good thing my passport is valid for another 3 years. I will make full used of that 3 years. Gonna shop till I drop!
The best method not to spend too much on accommodation while travelling to North Corolina for holiday with my in-laws is to rent a holiday house. My choices would be Outer Banks rentals as they have private property with more than 5 rooms. Bare in mind that this is apartment we are talking about. Their holiday house is mostly bungalows with private pool. Cool isn’t it?
I used to attend classes right after work and since I have a very tight working schedule, I can’t plan before hand when I may turn up for practise. To be safe, I have a bag full of my attire thrown in the car boot. Owing 7 sets of attire is a common sight for ladies (what’s more, we have 30 pairs of shoes in the house) but owing 7 towels is crazy. Or maybe that was me. *shrug* Ok. So I have only 3 towels. If any of the day the 3 towels is left at home, I am in a dead meat. So what do I do? Cursing under my breath that I wish they have a vending machine supplying towel. I know some centre do provide towel but in my case, it isn’t. To be less obvious, I just use my sleeve. Worst scenario would be having a stack of their (get from the toilet) paper towel with me. This is vending machine number 1 I wish they would fix in the toilet.
Vending machine number 2 would be selling rubber band. Lame isn’t it? I had long hair that is slightly shorter than waist length. Most of the time I never tie them up at work. If I happen to go for my practise that day, I am in a dead meat. Again. So what do I do? Cursing under my breath that I wish they have a vending machine selling rubber band. But, the kind soul at the front desk is always willing to be the ‘supplier’. Sometimes, I really feel paiseh to ask for a rubber band as they are always out of rubber bands!Â How pathetic that is. The torturing part would be removing the band from our hair as they tend to tangle up few strands of our hair. Guys are so lucky as they do not face the ‘rubber band’ problem.
Vending machine number 3.
G-string & strapless bra.
Ok.Â You can stop laughing now.Â I am not kidding you.
I cringe each time I saw other ladies wearing leotard and yet the visible pantie outline is so obvious.Â That.is.just.so.ugly!Â You bet I have gone commando several times when I happen to be on ‘aunty’ pantie or girdle.Â And how about your spaghetti strap top that doesn’t go well with that nondetachable strap bra?Â So what do I do?Â Cursing under my breath that I wish they have a vending machine suppying disposable g-string and …. bra?Â Siao!
What vending machine do you wish they had in your toilet?
p/s:Â Guys, please don’t bother to understand my crap if you are confused. lol.
This few days has been rather a unfortunate day for me as I have been involved in two separate road accident. Good thing I have my car insurance to take care of the compensation. While reversing out from the parking lot, I accidentally scratched my bumper against the car. This ought to teach some driver that like to illegally double park at the street. Talk about karma!
Beside taking up yoga, I did a little of horse riding when I have the free time. Sometimes I asked myself why does the sports that I am involved had a high cost of maintenance like buying the equestrian clothing, the boots, the hats and so forth? Same as yoga as we tend to invest in yoga clothes as if we are parading in a fashion show.
Other than going to the gym or practising yoga to keep yourself healthy, do you practise a healthy eating? I know of some practitioner that used to pig out like there is no tomorrow after a yoga session. Even before the classes start, they will be talking (so loudly) about where-to-meet and where-to-eat-BKT-session (Bak Kut Teh) after class. Can’t really blame them as BKT is part of pa sang lang (klangist) life and also the trademark of Klang.
Back to the topic, do you have the habit of blending your own juices? I have. I love making my own smoothies. Apart from fruits, I do include vegetables too like tomato, carrot and celery. Wait a minute, is tomato a fruit or vegetable? Oh, nevermind.
If you read up health article on tomato, they are actually the best detox food and help to prevent prostate cancer in man. Unfortunately not after I read up the article on the new study from the National Cancer Institute and Seattle’s Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center. Ok, I don’t really care about that since I am not a man.
Back to the topic again, not many people favour to eat Tomato by it’s own or even drink tomato juice alone. The best way to overcome them is to include tomato in your juices. That way, you can hardly even taste it. My favourite recipe would be:
It is up to you to include any fruits as long it is one or two portion of fruit and one portion of vegetable to your juices. It can be any type of fruits – watermelon, honey dew, grapes, star fruits, apple. Just be a little creative – Healthy Eating = Healthy Living.
Anyway, it is a Friday today and most of us will be looking forward to the day off. So, let’s chill a bit ya? Please say hi to your Mom for me too. Tomato Juice, anyone ? Cheers!
