Never the same!

After a little over a year of being a writer/journalist for a newspaper, I am starting to get excited about assignments.

Some days the assignments are easy peasy, other days not so. But on many many occasions, I am inspired by the people I meet, many for small little things they do. Sometimes the inspiration happens instantly, like last weekend; when Datuk Bridget Menezes said "the greatest disease of the mind is thinking too much!".

Other times it takes a little time to sink in, like the one when I met Ashley Fruno aka The Lettuce Lady, who was at Pavillion a few weeks back.

Ashley's peaceful campaign to let "Vegetarianism Grow On You" took its time to make an impact on me. Although her fresh, green gown of lettuce was an inspiring fashion statement, the real message, I received a few days later at home enjoying tandoori chicken while watching tv.

Just then I heard a voice in my head go "In every package of chicken, there's a little poop." (Just like it did in the video Chew On This -Reasons To Go Vegetarian).And suddenly tandoori chicken wasn't so yummy anymore.

Thanks Ashley and Peta (People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals). Thanks a lot for ruining tandoori chicken for me.

I DId It!

42 days of no rice and noodles. 42 days without coffee. An average of 10,500 steps per day.

And the best thing is trying out my old clothes and being able to wear them again. Yay!

On to the next round and another 5 kgs! :)

Every once in a while amidst an ordinary life, something interesting happens.

It feels like it could be one of those wide balls u get with when skies are grey.

You can't say if this wide ball is the one that will save the game. But the feeling of getting that wide ball, that one extra run and the hope it represents - priceless.

My aim is to celebrate gettting that one extra point; to enjoy it, to savour it until the end of it's time, regardless of its life span.

Thank u for extra one!

Beautiful Bali

Back from Bali, obviously but have been a bit busy (and lazy) to blog about it.

Needless to say it was an interesting experience, travelling to Bali with Cathy, who was on her maiden trip overseas on her own plus moi. While there were some minor hicups, as things never
go as planned when on a holiday, we managed to get past it and end up having lots of fun and bringing back the infamous Kek Lapis. Loved the cheese one!

Being on a diet in Bali wasn't that fun either, but I manage to return without causing too much far so good. The sate was good though, really good. 100 times yummier than
the Malaysian ones. And I caved in and had a Bintang beer just before the flight back home, which I know was totally evil of moi.

What else can I say? Bali is one of the most beautiful places I've been to and it's one of my favourite holiday places. Next time though, I think I will go with a guy. That place is just too romantic for just girlies.

Here are some picture I took of the trip. U know what they say - a picture says a thousand words and this is sooooo true. Below are worth at least 10,000 words if not more...(and I will not apologise for taking more pictures of Bali and not me, I truly enjoyed experimenting with the camera)
