Lets talk about the end of 2008

Today is the end of 2008. Felt like time was moving so fast, I almost couldn’t believe that it has been a year.

What have I achieved?

I gave birth to my healthy baby, all natural way. I honestly very proud of my self to be able to go through the birthing process because I was really scared (and excited) actually AND I hate hospital. I always think of hospital as a scary place because people who go to hospitals are sick, injured, bleeding…..arrgghhh

That’s it, not much huge achievement this year.

What about smaller achievements?

I manage to single handedly prepared and decorate “hantaran” for my sister in law for her engagement day.

Also became “mak andam” for her on that day. Mak andam terjun namanya (I was 7 month pregnant).

I manage to baked 5 types of cookies for Hari Raya despite preoccupied with my 1 month old baby. (Well, new born baby sleep a lot)

My oatmeal n raisin cookie is such a hit; I have to bake it again because the first batch finished too early, yippieeee.

My Oren cake is also a hit, I have to bake it again to bring to the office, requested by my colleagues.

The cake is so hit; I have to bake it again for my hubby to bring to his office, yippieeeee.

Anyway, the Oatmeal n Raisin cookie and Oren cake is the only thing that I can bake repeatedly and the taste is constantly the same. Unlike my chocolate cake, every time I bake one, it’ll taste different and even worst, according to my husband, sometime it taste like tepung, hehehehe (probably because I have too many chocolate cake recipe, I don’t know which one is whish anymore). Lagi pun aku bukannye terrer sangat masak pun, aku cuma suka cuba2 resepi.

Just wanna share some happy moment:

My husband is so lucky, he won grand price for his office’s lucky draw, and won an LCD tv, 32’ Sony Bravia. We are so happy because our old tv is a 6 years old 14’ Toshiba. Yeaayyyyy.

He also won RM100 Jusco voucher, he gave it to me to spend on anything I want, and I bought a handbag, a big brown and shiny bag by Stella. It’s pretty and so over the budget, I love it…yeayyyy.

What about for year 2009, what do I want to achieve?

First and foremost, I want to lose weight. At least to my ideal weigh, 57kg. But if possible, I want to go down to 52kg (zaman aku fly dulu2). hehehe. I’m currently 68kg.

I want to get a better job, with higher pay of course. So let us pray to Allah and give me the strength and confident to go for interview again coz only god knows how I hate interviews.

I want to buy a pink camera, if possible I want a DSLR, if not, any camera is okay, as long as it’s in pink.hehehehe.

I want to make a small business out of my baking. I’ve been thinking of it but just don’t know how and when to start. I need more practice though.

Driving license, I need one. Again, let us pray to Allah and give me the strength to spend my time and money to get a driving license because only god knows how I rather spend my time and money for other things such as new clothes, bags, shoes, baby stuffs, to pay my debts and the list goes on and on and on…………….

Not to forget, I want to be a better wife for my husband and a better mother to my son, Love my family so much.

That’s all, no need to daydream and list up a bunch and at the end of the day, none will come true. So, those lists are my wish list for next year. And being a realistic person, I’m happy enough if I can achieve at least one of it, but we’ll see what’s gonna happen okay.

Lets talk about christmas party

Ho Ho Ho, Party time @ eating time, yeah....

Biase la, during festival time ni mesti la ade party atau sinonimnya makan2. So Friday minggu lepas office aku buat jamuan christmas, saje buat awal sikit sebelum ade orang yg start cuti. Yang menariknya, one of our manager order turkey dari equatorial hotel Aku agak jakun jugak sebab tak pernah makan roast turkey,dan memandangkan turkey kan low cholestrol, fat, calorie @ sihat, so aku tak takut la nak makan and i really looking forward to taste it. So, pade haritu makanan amatlah banyak untuk kitorang punye department yg tak ramai mane ni, dan satu lagi yg best, kitorang tak invite pon big bosses, cuma staff2 sahaje, jadi makan la tanpa segan silu...hehe (tiba2 aku rase banyaknye aku cakap "so"..kan kan kan)

The foods...yam yam

The turksy and J.Co Donuts (yam yam)

Sebaik saje turkey itu dihiris, akak tak segan silu menjamu ( FYI, manager aku kate kalau tak pakai topi merah tu takleh makan,kehkehkeh).

Alamak, nak offer aku donut lagi, akak taknak dek, akak control perut.

Dah kenyang balik la, tapi posing dulu.
Sebelum balik tu aku dapat 2 hadiah, terharu pulak aku sebab aku tak belikan hadiah utk sape2 pon, satu tu foldable box and satu lagi body shop's lotion and shower gel.
okey la, selamat bercuti.

Let’s talk about sarcasm

If you are skinny and you’ve always been skinny then you probably never encounter this problem in your life. But if you are pretty plump (nicer word for fat) and you are trying to lose weight, I bet you’ve came across some people who are very insensitive to just give their comments without thinking of how you might have feel. I know I’ve heard a lot of those very piercing statement such as:

As I was making a list of the food I’ve eaten,
“You’re so vain la, always doing this, nak makan ape2 makan je la”, and I replied “biar la, orang lain tak nak buat, biar I buat”.

As I was eating my salad in the office,
“Wahhhhhhh, you very healthy arrrr” loudly with some nasty laugh.

While I’m eating bread few hours after lunch,
“Waahhh, you hungry ah” again loudly while laughing. FYI I have to eat small meal every 2 hours.

While I was weighting my pasta on the food scale,
“ Poyonye, bende macam tu pon nak timbang2”

As I enter the office trying to catch my breath because I just walk all the way from klcc,
“That is a good exercise for you la”

Those people might not meant to insult me but to me, a fat women trying hard to lose weight and always feel like people are looking at my tummy and they think I’m pregnant, I’m very vulnerable to those comment. And in case anyone of you who read this has made that kind of comment intentionally or unintentionally to someone you know, please remember this, fat people do have huge body but they have very tiny self esteem. So please don’t judge them. Because it’s hard enough that they have to live with a fat body, they can’t wear pretty clothes, they can’t wear high heels without torturing their feet, they can’t eat without being judge, people think they are lazy, people don’t wanna be like them because they think that fat people are ugly, they themselves think that they are always ugly, they get tired very easily, they struggle to be thinner, they cant eat chocolate and they always have to wear black outfit, they don’t need another unfriendly comment in their life. They already feel low without your comment, please don’t smack their pride to the ground. So please mind your own business.

Lets talk about mockingbird

Dear friends, from now on, you will see less and less of my updates here because my company had just lost their mind and permitted us to use the internet for ½ hour per day ONLY. Yes, they are cheapskate and crazy, hehehe.

But I’m glad to tell everyone here that I’ve lose 2 kg, yeaayyy. Still a long way to reach my goal, but gladly that those 2 kg was probably are my tummy alone because they are flatter and I can put on my pants without wearing a girdle now.hehehe.

So, since there are no more webs browsing when I’m not busy, I listen to a lot of mp3 lately. Just wanna share this one song that makes me wanna cry every time I listen to it. I don’t know about you, but to me the lyrics are so touching. And knowing that the singer is actually telling a true story about his life makes it even sadder.


YeahI know sometimes things may not
always make sense to you right now
But hey, what daddy always tell you?
Straighten up little soldier
Stiffen up that upper lip
What you crying about?
You got me

Hailie I know you miss your mom
and I know you miss your dad
Well I'm gone but I'm trying to give you the life that I never had
I can see you're sad, even when you smile, even when you laugh
I can see it in your eyes, deep inside you want to cry
Cause you're scared, I ain't there?
Daddy's with you in your prayers
No more crying, wipe them tears
Daddy's here, no more nightmares
We gon' pull together through it,
we gon' do it
Laney uncles crazy, ain't he?
Yeah but he loves you girl and you better know it
We're all we got in this world
When it spins, when it swirls
When it whirls, when it twirls
Two little beautiful girls
Lookin' puzzled, in a dazeI know it's confusing you
Daddy's always on the move,
mamma's always on the news
I try to keep you sheltered from it but somehow it seems
The harder that I try to do that, the more it backfires on me
All the things growing up his daddy that he had to see
Daddy don't want you to see but you see just as much as he did
We did not plan it to be this way, your mother and me
But things have gotten so bad between us
I don't see us ever being together ever again
Like we used to be when we was teenagers
But then of course everything always happens for a reason
I guess it was never meant to be
But it's just something we have no control over and that's what destiny is
But no more worries, rest your head and go to sleep
Maybe one day we'll wake up and this will all just be a dream


Now hush little baby, don't you cry
Everything's gonna be alright
Stiffen that upper lip up little lady, I told ya
Daddy's here to hold ya through the night
I know mommy's not here right now and we don't know why
We feel how we feel inside
It may seem a little crazy, pretty baby
But I promise momma's gon' be alright

It's funnyI remember back one year when daddy had no money
Mommy wrapped the Christmas presents up
And stuck 'em under the tree and said some of 'em were from me
Cause daddy couldn't buy 'emI'll never forget that Christmas
I sat up the whole night crying
Cause daddy felt like a bum,
see daddy had a job
But his job was to keep the food on the table for you and mom
And at the time every house that we lived in
Either kept getting broken into and robbed
Or shot up on the block
and your mom was saving money for you in a jar
Tryna start a piggy bank for you so you could go to college
Almost had a thousand dollars till someone broke in and stole it
And I know it hurt so bad it broke your momma's heart
And it seemed like everything was just startin' to fall apart
Mom and dad was arguin' a lot so momma moved back
On the Chalmers in the flat one bedroom apartment
And dad moved back to the other side of 8 Mile on Novara
And that's when daddy went to California with his CD
and met Dr. DreAnd flew you and momma out to see me
But daddy had to work, you and momma had to leave me
Then you started seeing daddy on the T.V. and momma didn't like it
And you and Laney were to young to understand it
Papa was a rollin' stone, momma developed a habit
And it all happened too fast for either one of us to grab it
I'm just sorry you were there and had to witness it first hand
Cause all I ever wanted to do was just make you proud
Now I'm sitting in this empty house, just reminiscing
Lookin' at your baby pictures, it just trips me out
To see how much you both have grown, it's almost like you're sisters now
Wow, guess you pretty much are and daddy's still here
Laney I'm talkin' to you too, daddy's still hereI like the sound of that, yeah
It's got a ring to it don't it?Shh, momma's only gone for the moment

And if you ask me too
Daddy's gonna buy you a mockingbird
I'mma give you the world
I'mma buy a diamond ring for you
I'mma sing for you
I'll do anything for you to see you smile

And if that mockingbird don't sing and that ring don't shine
I'mma break that birdies neck
I'll go back to the jeweler who sold it to ya
And make him eat every carat
don't fuck with dad (haha)

Lets talk about a brave confession

Kawan2 semua. Ade pon aku sekarang ni sangat la boring dan letih, especially sejak balik dari kg lepas raye haji ni. Ditambah pulak dengan masalah ngan baby sitter, budak 2 beradik yg dia jage tu kene sakit tangan, kaki dan mulut. Kesian memang kesian tapi masalahnya aku tak boleh la pulak nak hantar anak aku sebab takut berjangkit. Yg si mak bebudak tu pulak boleh tak amik cuti sebab dah habis katenye. Cuti akak pon dah abis gak dek non, abih laki akak la dok jage si Iman kat umah tu. Tapi takkan dia nak cuti lame2 pulak kan, so kitorang tengah runsing gak ni. Nak cari baby sitter lain, yg sekarang ni dah ok dah sebenarnye. Nak tumpang umah akak sepupu, jauh nun kat bukit beruntung tu, ulang alik tiap2 hari amik dan hantar iman mau melambung duit minyak. Ade yg dengan kitorang sekali duk menumpang umah akak sepupu tu karang dalam seminggu ni. Tengok la macam mane.

Jadi, memandangkan nak letak gambar2 baru tapi tak sempat nak download, so nak berstory2 pon jadi tak best, boring gile. Oleh kerane kerunsingan aku dan keboringan aku harini aku pon tiba2 nak bukak cerita yg ala2 pengakuan berani mati gitu. Ape dia? korang nak tau tak? muahahahaah....aku nak cerita pasal eyda yg gemuk.

Macam takde ape sgt kan, tapi bagi perempuan2, gadis2 dan ibu2 sekalian rasenye semua mesti bersetuju kalau aku kate berat badan adalah sesuatu yang sangat sensitive untuk dibincangkan kerane kita semua sangat2 ingin mempunyai bentuk badan yang menarik. SETUJU TAK? mesti la setuju, aku dah tau dah. Dan aku harini sangat la nekad nak cerita sajer kat sini, dengan harapan ade la orang2 yg nak bagi tips2 berguna dan untuk memotivatekan aku untuk terus berusaha sampai jaya sebab lepas ni aku akan updatekan kemajuan aku menurunkan berat badan, kalau ade kemajuan lah kan heheheeh. Kira aku nak buat jurnal kurus aku la ni.

Seperti yg korang tau aku baru lepas melahirkan seorang baby boy yg sangat aktif sejak akhir2 ni, tak reti diam, Iman. Dan sejak aku mengandungkan dia berat badan aku naik cam tak hingat. cukup 9 bulan berat aku ialah 82kg. Sebelum aku mengandung berat aku 62kg (memang dah gemuk sikit time tu). Mase aku kawin berat aku 57kg. Mase aku keje ngan MAS dulu berat aku 52kg. Waahhhh...dah macam sejarah berat badan la pulak kan. So dipendek kan cerita mase aku preggy tu berat aku naik 20kg kawan2. banyak tak hingat. Salah aku jugak la agaknye sebab selera makan nauzubillah. Mase first 3 montht tu berat tak naik, turun lagi ade sebab tak lalu makan sgt time tu, masuk je 4 bulan terus aku makan dengan jayanya. Tapi alhamdulillah la takde sampai kene sakit darah tinggi ke kencing manis ke. Mase tu aku paling suka makan donut sampai muka pon dah macam donut.hehehe.

So lepas bersalin dan habis pantang, berat aku turun 10kg, banyak jugak kalau nak diikutkan, tapi memandangkan aku dah memang gemuk, 10 kg tu tak cukup la kan. So balik je KL aku pon ala2 nak terus giat kuruskan badan la kan tapi habis kuat pon turun 2kg sahajer. Sekarang berat aku 70kg. Dah 3 bulan dah aku balik KL, liat pulak lebihan lemak2 ni nak hilang. So dipendekkan cerita seminggu sebelom raye haji haritu aku dah mula rajin bangun pagi2 buat exercise sikit2, aku ade CD senaman untuk abdominal and back, 45 minit per session. takde la buat tiap2 hari. Aku buat 3 kali seminggu je sebab weekdays liat skit nak bangun awal 45 minit. Pastu makan pon aku jage betol2 la, no goreng2, no cheese, basically aku kurangkan carbs, sweets and fat. aku banyak makan salad and sushi. Dan berkesan jugak usaha aku, sebab dalam seminggu berat aku turun 1 kg. yeayyyyyy.

Tapi balik kg 3 hari raye haji haritu aku tak boleh tahan tengok ketupat rendang tu. Raye puase haritu tak balik muar, so tak merase rendang, lodeh, kuah kacang mak buat. So haritu aku makan banyak sikit la dari biase tapi still jaga2 jugak. Ketupat aku makan sebijik je, aku bantai lauk la cukup2 hehehehe. Pastu mak aku baru balik Langkawi, dia beli coklet banyak dan bermacam2 rupa bentuk. Aku pon amik la satu, satu, satu lama2 jadi banyak. Balik raye haji berat aku berape? 71kg...arrgggghhhh. Benci kan, nak turun kan berat tu punye la susah, nak naik senang gile. So aku sekarang ni back to square one. Dah ade rase geram2 and give up sikit sebenarnye ni tapi aku cuba gagahi jugak la sebab to be honest i really hate the way i look right now with this flabby tummy and double chin, i dont look like i'm 28 year old mum but more like makcik2 and i really hate that.

Gambar ni diambil mase hari raya aidilfitri haritu, kat tanjung emas muar.

Gambar ni pulak mase g PD baru2 ni.
Like i said, pengakuan berani mati, do you see that flabby tummy? Aku cuma perasan lepas laki aku bg CD gambar2 PD yg dia amik dari kawan2 dia and this one was taken by one of his officemate. Malu sgt aku tengok gambar ni sebab aku tak perasan la bila aku pakai baju tu rupa aku seburuk itu. Sedih kan.
So, dengan bukti2 yg telah ditunjukkan maka terbukti la yg aku memang gemuk dan memang perlu menjaga badan sebab kalau tak sampai bila2 la aku jadi pompuan gemuk dan hodoh. So, semoga berjaya kepade aku dan pasni kalau ade perkembangan BAIK aku akan update kan kat sini okey.

Lets talk about 'katak tersepit bawah tempurung"

haaaaaaaaaaaa...kenape tetiba ape flyer watson plak kat sini. Ceritanye macam ni. Lunchtime tadi aku g tapau bakso (kat menara promate yg sekarang dah jadi menara KH) sebab semalam dah bantai ketupat rendang bagai kat, harini nak relax la makan sup2 pulak. By the way, sedap jugak bakso tu, dulu aku saje2 je nak try sekali macam ok jugak, dalam soup tu ade macam fishball yg akak tu buat sendiri rasenye sebab rupanya tak macam yg beli kat kedai, pastu dia letak sambal apetah dalam sup tu rase pedas2 best camtu, boleh dimakan bersama su-un atau mee hoon, so ni 2nd time aku try dan harganye cuma RM3.50, kira kalau kat KL dah cukup murah la tu kan.
Sampai opis, aku pon amik la paper lama, bukan utk dibace sebab aku sememangnye tak suke bace paper, aku amik paper lama utk alas meja aku, takut karang kotor pulak. Aku bukak2 paper tu ade pulak iklan watson terpampang kat dalam tu. Aku pon jadi ala2 sambil makan sambil cuci mate tengok watson punye promotion la. Tengok punye tengok sekali ade yg menarik perhation sikit, sikit je la. Ade watsons battery operated toothbrush, Buy 1 Free 1 for RM29.90 sahajer. Murah kan. Tiba2 aku terase macam katak yg tersepit dibawah tempurung kelape yg sgt dah tua,hehehe. Aku selame ni ingat mahal la sgt berus gigi kepale bulat tu, rupenye murah je senah, siap buy 1 free 1 lagi tu. Terus aku tengok tarikh promotion tu, from 20 Nov 08-4 Jan 09. Harus la aku g beli nanti. Sekian.

Lets talk about the rain

Thanks god the rain started early today and it looks like it's gonna stop anytime soon or else i have to run in the rain again to go to KL sentral and i really hate that. Aku pon tak faham kenapa diorang tak buat je bumbung dari stesyen monorail KL Sentral tu sambung terus ke seberang jalan tu sebab sah2 la orang yg turun kat situ kebanyakkannye akan pegi KL sentral. Nasib baik aku tak demam sebab kalau demam risau jugak takut kene kat Iman pulak. Tapi hujan tu rahmat kan, so redha saje la. Cuma satu je masalah musim2 hujan ni, nyamuk banyak pulak, tak suka nyamuuuuukkk.

Lets talk about love

” I guarantee that we will have tough times
I guarantee at some point, one or both of us would want to get out of it,
But, I also guarantee if I don’t ask you to be mine,
I’ll regret it for the rest of my life,
Because I know, in my heart you are the only one for me “

- Runaway Bride-

I’ve watch this movie so many times yet I still cry when Julia Robert said that to Richard Gere. Am I a hopelessly romantic person, nop, I’m so not a romantic I don’t event know how to console my husband when he’s sooo mad and that make me a hopeless person.

I think it’s fair to say that those phrases are perfect to all couples who are still sticking together with their partner/wife/husband after years of relationship because we all know being in a relationship with someone is not easy. In fact, it’s is so hard and you will have tough times, you will at some point want to get out of it but you never did. You stay. No matter what happen, how heart broken you sometimes are, how it’s sometimes hurt your soul so bad you feel like you rather die, but you didn’t. You stay and never will leave. Because in your heart you know that he/she IS the only one for you and without he/she your life won’t be the same, you wont fall in love again, there is no body else you wanted to be with the most then your partner/wife/husband. And because of that, no matter how tough it gets and how painful you feel, you’ll try your best to make it work out, any possible way that you think could work, even if it means that you have to sacrifice your feeling, your time, your money, your sanity because you want to believe that there’s always hope. And because of this, I congratulate all the couples who are still together after years and years, possibly decades with your love one because only god knows how hard it is and how tough you are.

Lets talk about foods that harm foods that heal

My husband bought this book from readers digest and just received it last week. i didnt know about it untill he shows it to me. It's quite expensive but looking at the thickness and the beautiful picture on the hard cover, my first impression was 'it's worth it'. (yap, sometimes i tend to be shallow to buy things ONLY because of how it looks, SOMETIMES)

But the best part is of course the contains of the book. As written on the cover ' an A-Z GUIDE to safe and healthy eating' , that's exactly what's the book is about and once you start reading it you dont want to stop ( except for me, i have my baby to attend to hehehe). Just name it, any foods, disease, veggies, pasta, basically anything to do with health and food are in it (yesterday i look for sushi hehe). For food, it will explain the pros and cons of it, the calories, the vitamins and minerals, if the food is bad for health then what kind of illness can occurs and stuff like that. It's pretty much a health dictionary, anything you want to know from A to Z. So, this book is really really worth buying.

i google the book and this is what it says:

The first edition--over 6 million copies sold--changed the way the nation looked at food and its impact on our bodies. This edition builds on that foundation with hundreds of A-Z entries updated with scientific, nutritional, and medical information that reflects the latest research--all in a new reader-friendly, easy-to-read, two-column format.

Lets talk about one great movie

Pernah tengok tak cerita ni? kalau belom aku recommend korang beli la DVD and watch the fim because to me this is one of the best movie ever made, also one of my fav movie. Aku tengok pon kat DVD, pinjam laki aku punye(mase tu boypren lagi) dalam 5 tahun lepas kot, sebab mase tu aku muda lagi hehehe.

Meh aku cerita synopsis dia versi aku:

Cerita ni dalam bahasa Italy (bace subtitle la) dan dalam era perang dunia kedua, mengisahkan seorang perempuan bernama Malena yg kematian suami (suami dia ni askar, pergi berperang pastu dia dapat berita suami dia terkorban). Sepanjang kisah ni diceritakan oleh seorang budak lelaki umur 12 tahun name Renato. Actually Renato ni adalah salah seorang lelaki yg tergila2 kan Malena ni sebab Malena sgt la cantik(dilakonkan oleh Monica Bellucci). Kira dalam pekan dia tu dia yg paling cantik la, sampai bila laki dia mati semua lelaki nak kan dia walaupun dah berbini, semua nak try pikat dia, yg bini2 pulak semua benci kat Malena ni pasal pade diorang Malena ni nak rampas husband dia. Padahal Malena adelah seorang pompuan yg sgt bersopan ye kawan2. Jalan pon tunduk je ala2 perempuan italy terakhir, tak kacau orang pon. Tapi sekali dia lalu kat tengah pekan semua orang pandang dia, punye la cantik gitu. Renato pulak, sebabkan dia suka sgt kat Malena, dia selalu follow Malena kesana sini. Sebab tu dia jadi pencerita kisah ni, sebab ape jadi kat Malena dari awal sampai habis memang dia tau, macam mane Malena nak cari keje lepas laki dia mati tapi orang tak nak amik dia keje sebab bini2 n mak2 diorang tak bg, macam mane Malena kebulur tak makan sampai akhirnye terpakse buat tindakan yg kemudiannye memudaratkan dia, sampai kene pukul tendang cam binatang. Kesian gile.

Kesimpulannye cerita ni pade aku sgt menyentuh hati, aku kagum dengan ketabahan dan keberanian dia, memang sgt tabah, padahal kene caci, kene pukul, kene maki, semua orang benci semata2 sebab dia cantik tapi dia tabah je teruskan jugak hidup no matter what it takes. Aku kagum jugak dengan Renato tu, walau pun dia kecik lagi tapi dia tau ape yg orang2 dewase buat kat Malena tu salah and kalau dia besar dia sure will protect Malena. Kesudahan cerita ni pulak pade aku sgt adil dan really show how she's a brave person to go back to that village after all they did to her.

Lets talk about sushi

Who don't like to eat sushi? i hardly find someone who don't like them, but in my case, i loooooove sushi to the extream that i can eat them everyday. So during my pregnancy it's kinda torturing when i cant eat sushi for 9 whole month. Says who? says the pregnancy books and experienced mommies. That's why right after confinement i'll buy sushi everytime i saw them and since i've started working again i can say that i had some sushi everyweek. Well they are not really hard to find after all. In fact yesterday i went to Jusco to buy pampers for my baby and i bought some sushi for dinner.

But last night it suddently came across my mind, since i'm trying to lose weight an all,is it healthy to eat sushi or to be exact, can i gain more weight if i eat sushi? Because eating a lot of carbo can lead to weight gain and one main ingredient in sushi is the sticky rice. But then again, there's no oil or butter used to make sushi coz it's basically not cook, not fry at least. So the dilemma is, will the sushi sabotage my diet. I'm now either 'not so sure' OR i'm in denial because i like sushi.hehehehe.

So i did some research and this is what i've found:

The main ingredients of sushi, raw fish and rice are naturally low in fat (with the exception of some rolls, especially Western style rolls), high in protein, carbohydrates, vitamins, and minerals. Specifically:

Fats: Most seafood are naturally low in fat; and what fat is found in them is generally rich in unsaturated fat Omega-3. Since sushi is often served raw, no fat is introduced in its preparation.
Proteins: Fish, tofu, seafood, egg, and many other sushi fillings contain high levels of protein.
Vitamins and Minerals: These are found in many of the vegetables used for sushi.
Carbohydrates: These are found in the rice and the vegetables.

Not much help here coz it doesnt say how much is the cholesterol and calories contains in the sushi.

So i search again and found this snd this:

Even the varieties of fish used in sushi-tuna, salmon, and eel-contain fewer than 200 calories per four-ounce serving. That's about half what you'd get with a prepared steak. Shrimp and octopus are even lower, at only 100 calories per serving. And the fatty fish calories pack the nutritional power of not only protein, B-vitamins, and minerals like selenium, but also Omega-3 fatty acids. It plays a role in maintaining a healthy heart, and metabolism as well. The Omega-3's improves conditions such as arthritis, psoriasis, and depression.

Nori, rice and vegetables add another mere 150 calories per serving. These calories provide more vitamins, minerals, and fiber, especially if brown rice is used, and provide a good source of carbohydrates to complement the fish protein. Even wasabi can claim its own small health benefit, being rich in vitamin C.

While the raw fish used in sushi is considered higher in many enzymes and nutrients than its still heart-healthy cooked counterpart, certain individuals, including pregnant women and those with immune disorders, should not eat raw fish or shellfish, because of the risk of exposure to bacteria such as Listeria monocytogenes, and parasites. These risks may be considered minimal, as long as the restaurant is reputable and obtains and maintains its fish according to high quality standards.

i think that info helps. So, i can eat sushi but to avoid consuming too much calories choose a regular sushi with rice, fish and seaweed and avoid the one with cream and sauce, fine by me as long as i can eat sushi...yeaayyyyyyy.

Lets talk about my fav talk show@cooking show

It's Rachel Ray my friends....this show really kick martha stewards out for me coz i no longger wait to watch martha as i used to (when i'm home during weeekdays) but nowadays i'll make sure i'll be in front of my cute little tv on 11am to watch Rachel Ray show...

I'm sure show ni dah lame dah and aku ala2 ketinggalan train sebab aku start suka pon baru lagi, mase dalam pantang haritu, kate cuti 2 bulan + 1 bulan, so dah tak keje dapat la tengok rancangan2 tv yg disiarkan pada waktu keje ye kawan2. Mase dalam pantang kat Muar lagi la boring tak buat ape, tido pon depan tv, pastu mase tu baby pon asyik nak susu every 2 hours so aku tido pon tak betol, jadi nye jgnkan rachel ray show yg pukul 11pg, yg ulangan kul 1 pg tu pon aku tengok. Yg bestnye Rachel Ray ni aku rase because she's so energetic and humble and dia tak macam celebrity chef sgt, well after all she said she's not a chef but she's just a cook because she don't have those chef cert. Tapi aku suka cara dia masak..main campak2, memang la style aku kan,style nak cepat,kehkehkeh. Pastu resepi dia mostly takde traditional sgt, semua jenis yg senang dan cepat. Aku nye favorite segment mestila 'what's for dinner'.

Satu lagi point utk dia ialah she cooks really healthy food. Walaupun cepat dimasak tapi she always tries to make the food as healthy as she could. So most of the time dia akan guna whole grain pasta, add a lot of vegi to the food and instead of frying the food, she bake them. So since aku tengok show dia aku pon start to bake my food, ayam la, sayur la, kentang la, makanan yg aku selalunye goreng. So in a way the show give me new ideas to make good healthy food. Selalunye aku takde buat resepi yg sebijik macam dia buat sebab selalunye bahan2 yg dia pakai either susah nak cari tak pon mahal kat mesia ni, so aku improvise je la supaya senang nak buat. Janji buat ye tak. Satu lagi she likes to use a lot of cheese in her resepi and i don't, sebab akak jage badan senah.hehehe

Jom try resepi ni yg ala2 sihat (less cheese please):

Eggplant Bake
Serves 8

6 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil (EVOO), divided
8 slices day-old Italian bread
1 large eggplant
4 beefsteak tomatoes or 8 plum tomatoes
2 medium zucchini
1/2 cup basil, torn
1/2 cup grated Parmigiano Reggiano cheese
Salt and pepper

Pre-heat the oven to 400°F.
Fully grease a baking dish, using the first 2 tablespoons of EVOO. Line the baking dish with the eight slices of bread. Drizzle another 2 tablespoons of the EVOO over the bread.
Slice the eggplant into 1/4-1/2-inch thick slices. Slice the tomatoes and zucchini the same thickness. Line the eggplant over the bread. Next, layer the tomatoes and zucchini. Sprinkle the torn basil over the veggies and drizzle the rest of the EVOO over everything. Sprinkle the cheese over the veggies, followed by the salt and pepper.
Bake, uncovered, for an hour and serve hot by slicing into squares.

Aku memang suke makan sayur, yum yum..

Lets talk about my growing son

In another 3 days Iman will be 4 months old. Kejap ke? actually aku rase lama, sebab aku selalu rase tak sabar nak tunggu dia besar, tak sabar nak tunggu dia pandai merangkak, jalan, tepuk2 tangan, berlari, bercakap mesti lagi best kan, sape ade anak tau la, sape yg takde anak cepat2 la beranak, tak menyesal punye......

Mari kita lihat Iman membesar, banyak beza tak?

1 month+, sekali sekala dia senyum acah2, tapi tu pon mama&ayah dah excited gile..kehkeh

2 month+, dah pandai senyum lebar, ketawa sikit2, gelak sakan2 lom lagi..

3 month+, dah pandai menyiarap n hisap tangan, hisap kaki lom lagi..hehe

Banyak beza tak?..entah la, aku dengan dia tiap2 hari aku rase takde banyak beza sgt tapi baju2 dah makin muat2.

Nop, skinny-T is not my new nick name coz obviously i'm not skinny, but its one of Sony cybershot series, DSC-T77 @ skinny-T because it's sooooooo skinny and i'm officially "jatuh cinta tahap gaban" with this camera.

Naaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaakkkkkkkk.

Lets talk about my last trip to PD

Ini la dia trip yg ala2 controversi yg dah tak contraversi lagi dah, since boss aku pon tak tanye2 ( i bet after this kalau aku nak mintak cuti lagi issue ni akan naik balik). Anyway the trip was great fun. Aktiviti tetap dan yg dinanti2 kan oleh semua orang adalah makan, buffet for breakfast, lunch and dinner, so kitorang pon asyik makan je la keje nye sampai lebam,muahaha. Ade sorang anak kawan husband i cakap " belum sempat lapar dah makan lagi?"..kehkeh.. tapi aku tak makan sangat, makan sikit2 lah tu kan..

Gambar ni macam gambar kat brochour kan, sebenarnye diambil oleh my husband's colleague menggunakan DSLR sony siri yg mane aku tak tau, yg aku tau cam nak nangis aku tengok camera dia, jeles gilossss....

Tengah makan2 tiba2 anak aku dikidnap oleh encik ini...bukan main sedap lagi dia hisap jariii...
Ade jugak la aktiviti2 lain, diorang main pingpong, bola tampar, swimming kat pool yg besar tu and hari ke-2 ade sukanekyg sangat riuh rendah..hehe (by the way, aku tengah cube meng'upload' gambar ni tapi sangat la lambatnye, geram nih, aku dah la nak cepat,arrgghhhhh)

Mane aku? aku tak main, aku teman Iman tido kat bilik, Iman bila dapat bilik aircond dia terus tido tak hengat..
Mane aku?..tu ha kat hujung tu dengan Iman yg tengah dok dalam stroller oren...nampak tak? Aku saje je taknak bg gambar dekat2 sebab aku tengok gambar aku tu sedih, gemuk douh, lalu aku tiba2 menjadi low self esteem gitu..
ok la yek..tiba2 aku jadi takde mood plak nak cerita lebih2 sebab internet ni slow nak mampus...tata

Lets talk about new books

I bought 2 more little black dress novel today. He Loves Lucy and Hex and the single girl. Here are the synopsis:

Most women would KILL to have round the clock access to personal trainer/demi-god Theo Redmond. But Lucy Cunningham’s starting to wish she’d never laid eyes on him!

When marketing exec Lucy pitched the idea of reality TV show in which Theo took a ‘fitness-challenged’ women, and turned her from flabby to fabulous, she wasn’t planning on being a star. But then, she reasons, she could stand to loose a few pounds, only not with the whole of Miami and gorgeous Theo watching. But then again for every pound she loses she gains big bucks….

As Lucy sweats her way into a whole new life, things start to heat up between her and Theo. But what can a chocoholic and gym bunny possibly have in common? Or could Lucy and Theo be about to discover that appearances can be deceptive – and true love lies somewhere between pizza and Pilates?
Note: Lucy is trying to loose weight, and so do i..

Comment: I've finished this book, and it doesnt really impress me, a bit disapointed with Theo's character coz at the begining he's like a perfect guy, hensome, athletic, good hearted and all but once he feel for Lucy he suddently became sex maniac, sex is all he's thinking when he sees Lucy. so pathetic. But the ending is somewhat fair.

Do you think that access to magical powers would help your love life? Who doesn’t?

Which is where good witch Emma Hutch comes in. By day, she’s just your average, stylish girl about town…
By Night, she puts her witchy ways to the best possible use, casting spells to match Manhattan ladies to the men of their dreams – for a small fee of course.

In fact, she’s so good at her jobs that business is booming. The only snag is her own love life, witch is distinctly lacking in sparkle. But when Emma is hired to match the city’s most eligible bachelor with and evil scheming socialite, suddenly her supernatural work ethic is put to the test. And just maybe it’s time to break the rules and turn a little magic onto her self.

Note: Doesn’t that synopsis sound undeniably and magically interesting which is why I have to have this book.

So, I’ll start with “I love Lucy” first because that one is closer to my heart, duhh…its about a fat women trying to be skinnyyy…and once I’m finish these books I’ll give my comments ok…oh, by the way, I think I forget to mention that this books only cost RM19.90 each which is why I can afford to buy 3 of these book in a month, because they are cheep plus they are not so thick either which makes it even better coz I’m not into thick books, I’ll get bored just to look at it and I don’t want to risk buying one and end up finding that the story are bore to death.

Lets talk about toothbrush

This morning, in the car on our way to the office :

Eyda: Yang, berus gigi bulat yang pakai bateri tu mahal tak?
Suaminya: Mahal jugak.
Eyda: Tapi kene selalu tukar ke macam berus gigi biase?
Suaminya: Tukar kepale dia je la.
Eyda: Ooooo.tak yah la tukar the whole thing eh?
Suaminya: Berus gigi tu memang bagus pon.
Eyda: Tu la, haritu saye tengok kat TV, Dr gigi tu kate kita kene berus gigi buat cam bulatan kecil kat semua gigi kita, kalau pakai berus biase susah la buat camtu, berus kepale bulat tu senang la (sambil buat gaya pakai berus gigi kepale bulat tu.hehehe)
Eyda: Yang, nanti birthday saye awak belikan berus gigi tu eh.
Suaminya pandang sinis sikit, sikit je.
Eyda: Ala, birthday saye lame lagi.
Suaminya: Awak la belikan untuk saye.
Eyda: Awak la.
Suaminya: Camni, saye belikan untuk awak, pastu awak belikan untuk saye, same la macam kita beli sendiri je,hehehe.
Eyda: Kita beli la brand lain2.
Suaminya: mane boleh, kene la beli same.

lepas tu dua2 diam. Sebenarnye dua2 kedekut.hehehehe

Lets talk about our last trip to One Utama

Memandangkan aku tak sempat lagi memuat turun gambar2 baru, kita tengok gambar lame je lah yek. Takde la lame sangat pon, pertengahan raye haritu, saje jalan2 bawak iman n nak beli something untuk dia.

Iman dalam stroller orennye, cam mengantuk je budak ni. Tak sejuk ke kaki Iman tu?

Lepas makan g jalan2 tengok2 barang baby kat jusco n belikan iman blanket tu,terus wrap kaki dia. Kesian dia sejuk, mama pulak boleh lupa bawakkan blanket. Stop jap, Iman nak susu.

Dah dapat susu baru la dia happy.

Lepas tu g Parkson pulak, nak beli wedding gift. Sempat pose2 jugak tu, hehe.

Dah balik. Ni la dia barang yg kitorang nak beli. Bouncer untuk Iman.Kagum dia tengok bola tergantung tu.hehe.

Mase beli tu umur Iman dah 2 bulan lebih. Konon2 beli bouncer tu sebab dia suka sgt duduk, so letak kat situ boleh la dia bersandar macam tu. Sekali kan, pakai kejap je dia dah tak nak duduk dalam tu dah, umur dia 3 bulan lebih dia dah start mengiring nak menyiarap, so tak boleh la bg duduk dalam bouncer sebab dia nak mengiring dalam tu sampai nak terjatuh. Moral of the story, kalau nak beli bouncer untuk baby anda belilah semase dia masih bayi ye adik-adik.

Sekarang Iman dah pandai menyiarap dah, asyik berguling2 je dia, tido pon dah makin lasak. Anak mama dah besar.

Lets talk about ultramen cum polis trafik

Once apon a time, about a month ago, on a weekend, suddently my son sleep like this:

lama jugak tangan dia stay macam tu, tak tau la dia tengah mimpi ke, tak pon dia mengantuk sgt sampai tak sedar tangan dia terangkat ala2 ultramen camtu. Dengan sarung tgn putih tu, macam polis trafic pon ade. Lame tak lame, banyak jugak la gambar yg aku ngan suami aku snap. Kitorang mula2 biar je la ingatkan tak lame nanti dia turunkan la tangan dia tu, tengok2 tak turun2 jugak, pastu aku turunkan la.....hehehehe

Lets talk about my husband's suggestion

So, jumaat lepas, time balik keje, lepas suami aku amik aku kat Maybank Bangsar kitorang ternampak sorang kakak ni, berbaju kebaya hitam n betudung pink tengah berjalan balik keje. Aku tak kenal pon akak tu, tapi ade sesuatu yg menarik perhatian sikit. Akak tu punye kat bahagian tangan tu jarang gila, baju dia lace tapi kat tangan tu takde lining. so, sebab baju dia hitam, tangan dia pulak putih kan, nampak jelas la kontranye, dan obvious sgt la jarangnye baju tu. Laki aku pon nampak n terus start cakap pasal perempuan sekarang yg bertudung tapi pakai baju yang kadang2 tak SESUAI. Siap dia keluarkan buku ni, masjid bangsar kadang2 mase semayang jumaat diorang bagi satu buku ceramah n kebetulan haritu artikalnye pasal menutup aurat.

Antara yg disentuh pasal bertudung tapi pakai baju t-shirt lengan pendek n ketat macam baju adik, pakai baju jarang, pakai tudung tapi leher baju besar n nampak dada, pakai kain paras betis, pakai baju sendat menampakkan bentuk tubuh.

Lepas dia baca semua tu tiba2 dia cakap " bila agaknye awak nak pakai jubah, tak semstinye warna hitam, warna ape2 pon takpe la janji jubah"..ALAMAK, nak kene pakai jubah ke. aku terkesima sekejap. Sanggup ke aku pakai jubah?..sekarang ni memang la aku dah bertudung (sape yg tak tau, lepas kawin tahun lepas aku terus bertudung), tapi baju aku takde la proper sgt kadang2.Takde la baju aku jarang ke, t-shirt lengan pendek ke, cuma kadang2 tu ade la jugak baju aku yg lengannye 3/4, pastu baju2 ala2 stretchable n ngam2 badan, hehe. Macam orang2 lain jugak, aku nak bertudung and at the same time aku nak jugak berfesyen. So bila memikirkan jubah je yang terus aku terpikir jubah2 yg mak aku pakai tu, yang cutting tak menarik n color apetah lagi..jahil tak aku cakap macam ni.

Tapi semalam mase jalan2 kat midvaly aku nampak ade beberapa kedai yg jual dress bunga2 yg labuh loose with long sleeves. Cantik jugak kalau macam tu. Jadi kesimpulan aku nak pakai jubah boleh je, satu hari nanti la, tapi yg pastinye bukan jenis jubah2 yg macam mak2 pakai tu la, karang aku jadi tak ikhlas pulak, kalau ade rezeki nanti aku beli kain aku suka pastu tempah la buat jubah2 yg ade fesyen2 sikit n berwarna warni. insyaallah...(bila la agaknye tu, aku dah la duit cukup2 je sekarang ni, kehkehkeh)

Cantik gak ikin ni berjubah kan.

lets talk about my favorite movie and book

OK, since everybody else in the office are breaking the internet rules then so will i, muahaha. So lets talk about another favorite movie of mine, The Devils Wear Prada.

Aku suka sgt movie ni and i've watch it many times, possibly more than 10 times, the first time is on cinema at GSC midvally a few years back and the rest on dvd. not only that i love the storyline because it's funny, most importainly i love the shoes, the bags, the belts, the boots, the necklace, the fashions in it. I even like to watch all those skinny pretty womens, adore and envy them, in a way it motivate me to be skinny again because who dont want to look like them right.

Interestingly, although meryl streep are great in this film and anne hathaway are funny, it's not their characters that attracts me, its the first assistant, emily witch in real world are also name emily, emily blunt. The way she's being sarcastics and pain in the ass are really hilarious to me, i really like watching her in this movie more then anyone else. Does that mean i like sarcastic peoples, nop, only likes them in films. Do you know who she is dating, michael buble'.

I know that this film are based on a novel, always thinking of buying it but never did, so last tuesday i went to borders times square to buy the novel (you know la, without internet in the office i feel like sleeping the whole day, gila boring) but then i came across this novel by little black dress, my favorite publisher, and the story are pretty much the same as the devil wears prada and i bought it instead because it's cheaper.hehehe. Plus i've bought quite a few books from little black dress series and i only dislike one of it, the rest are great, so i think this book are gonna bee great to. Well i've read almost half of it so far(i read it in the office during my free time witch is a lot lately) and it's funny as always. All of their novels are kinda chicky, funny story with a pinch of sex to make it interesting, not the hot n steamy kind of sex though, the very funny n sweet part of sex. Try and read one of these novel, you'll know. So, right now i'm reading this book:


Memoirs are Made of This

How to get ahead in journalism:
1. Take a job as a PA to a glamorous writer, like Susanna Hyde, author of the wildly popular sex column Nothing to Hyde
2. Spend your days running errands, and delivering ‘you’ve been dumped’ messages to ex-lovers who are yesterday’s news. Realise life in Manhattan is not as glamorous as you expected
3. But when the boss asks you to cover her column, do not, repeat not, prove to be better at writing about sex than she is…
4. And when one day you accidentally hit it off a little too well with Susanna’s latest ex-toy-boy, sexy writer Josh O’Connell, keep this information very secret from her…

Note: i've just finish reading the book and it's so fantastic, i feel like i want to write a memoir of my own. Well, now that i've finish with this book faster then i've expected (i thought it will last about a month but i can't stop reading it) now i have to buy my self another book to read or should i say another little black dress.

Lets talk about freaking doughnuts

Yes, starting form yesterday onwards i'm now officially scared to eat a doughnut. Why? Because of an email and this info:

gambar diambil dari
Doughnuts are cancer-causing double trouble. First, they are made with white flour, sugar, and hydrogenated oils, then fried at high temperatures. Doughnuts may be the worst food you can possibly eat to raise your risk of cancer.
So, no more J.Co, Big Apple, Dunkin Doughnuts for me (i use to ate a box of 3 pieces of J.Co doughnut for lunch AND i also once shared a dozen of Big Apple doughnuts with my husband). Maybe i'll treat my self with a doughtnut once a month but not and will not have them as much as i use to be ( especially during my last pregnancy where i craved for them almost everyday and dragged my big tummy to pavilion to buy them).
Tak Nak cancerrrrrr....scary kan!
