my new toy! Panasonic Lumix DMC-TS3

Yey… finally I decided to just grab a compact camera J and it can be brought underwater J yey  yey yey… can’t wait to bring it to Tioman this weekend on my trip with Joey and my office colleagues. I have been eye-ing for a waterproof camera. Somehow, we have become lazy to bring my DSLR due to the weight and size, although it is still the best in terms of photo quality. But ahh… will see how J And so, if you guys wanna know more about my new toy… feel free to browse this page. J I have yet to try mine… will let you know, or maybe just upload some photos when I come back from my trip next week :P Mine is orange in colour by the way J

blogspot blocked?

Hmmmm don’t know what to say mode right now. As usual, my routine would be checking emails, then blogs.. just to start the day. And today, I learned that blogspot has been blocked from the office. When I asked, the answer that I received was, “Biasalah, sini banyak bloggers”, and so?? What is wrong with that? We cannot express our feelings and creativity anymore? Gosh, it has becoming more and more unacceptable. Or it affects me because I am a blogger? Hmmm okay lah… whatever… I can still blog via email, just that the feeling is a bit different and I cannot put labels on my postings. So okay… that is about the things that has been going around in my work life… call it boring if you want, but do I have a choice?

I have a few postings pending… some I have started half way… but somehow I have a problem with my right hand now… some fingers hurt… could it be because of bbm-ing? It sounds funny I knowm but I was just thinking if that could be the cause? Hehehe :D :P Anyway, people… I will be back soon okay. Will find some time to fill in the blanks ;) Gotta start doing my work now or the warden may just catch me… :P *sarcasm mode* :P later….

13 tips on how to lose weight fast

ahh okay... i am desperate! have i told you that i have been eating like a pig lately? of have been for the past few weeks/months... arghhh... blame it on work stress!! well anyway, i really need to reduce my weight especially the thigh area! yes, they are fat! hey... slim women have problems too in certain area okay... give us a break to whine.. :P ahaks... :P and i share this issue with some friends too :) who are also slim like me, but have the same issue, thigh. so, let's share this info that i found on the website.. but of course, i must change my food pattern!!! 

so, i looked around... a fast way, perhaps would cost me a bomb... to go to a slimming center, which is so not me... :P now i am trying to swim a lot at home. hahahah just got 2 times this week. should be doing more.. perhaps i should do a schedule for me?! wokay all, here goes...

13. Get Motivated

This tip is one tip that is a must. Without doing this, you are not going to lose that fat fast. You see, motivation is the key to everything, including losing leg fat. If you would really like to succeed, then strong motivation is something you will be in need of.
Think of something that might motivate you 3 times a day – it might be pictures of celebrities with gorgeous legs, a pair of skinny jeans you no longer fit it, the legs of the girl from 2B apartment you wish you had etc. These thoughts are not very pleasant, on the contrary, they kind of make us feel bad, but that’s exactly what we need. We need to feel the pain, the lack of something we truly want and only that bad feeling will give us enough strength to achieve our goal – make the perfect legs happen to us!

12. Stock on Patience

Patience is another key that you will need. Yes, I understand that you would like to lose that leg fat in a day or two, but let’s face it, it is not going to happen like this. You will need to work at it and put a lot of effort into losing that leg fat. So, prepare yourself for a 1 month minimum time. And don’t get disappointed when you do not see the results the next day.

11. Exercise. Exercise. Exercise.

Obviously, you need to do exercises. There are many different types of exercise that you will be able to do in order to get rid of that leg fat. Yes, at first, those exercises may seem a bit tough and tiring. However, once you get used to them, in no time, those exercises will be easy. Besides, after a couple of weeks, you will start to see the results of work you put into it. The most effective exercises are the following: jogging, fast walking, sprint running for short distances, sit-ups, swimming, dancing, pilates, aerobics.

10. Create a Routine

I recommend you create a routine and stick to it. If you only do your exercises once a week, then this is not going to work. I recommend you choose at least four days a week to do the exercises. If you neglect to do them, then it will take a much longer time to get those skinny legs you have been wanting for so long.

9. Ballet Squats

Have you ever heard of ballet squats? These are a form of exercise that targets your lower body, including your thighs and legs. I have personally used this type of exercise and that is how I lost weight. To start this, all you have to do is bend your knees as you are making sure your torso is upright, You should be holding your hands on your waist or out in front of you. Your knees will have to travel in line with your toes. You should lower yourself as low as you can go. Make sure you do not hurt yourself with this one and keep the back straight.

8. Reverse Lunge
dumb bell lunge
It’s another exercise that many individuals have used in order to lose weightquickly in their legs. Start out with your feet about eight inches apart and your torso erect. Take an easy step backward. Lower your hips until your front thigh is parallel or straight to the floor. The position of your knee should be directly over your ankle and foot.

7. Running

I also highly recommend running. Running is a great exercise when it comes to losing weight not only in the legs, but in the rest of the body as well. It will increase your heart rate and it’s a good aerobic activity. Running is also going to speed up that metabolism.

6. Ride a Bike

Riding a bike is another important exercise to do if you are looking to lose weight. When there is nice weather outside, why not ride your bikes? You may also go to the gym and exercise on the bikes they have there.

5. Team Sports

Playing sports is also a great idea. And it’s also a lot of fun! It will speed up your heart rate and help you burn fat off of your whole body, including your legs. Some good sports include basketball, soccer and football.

4. Swimming

If you like swimming and you have access to a pool, then look no further – it’s not only a great workout for every single muscle in your body, it’s also the greatest way to get your whole body toned and lose that leg fat that’s been bothering you for so long. And it’s also very pleasant, so you practically kill all the birds with one stone! :)

3. Drink Water

Drinking water is another important factor. With that thought in mind, you need to avoid those fizzy drinks as they are no good for you. Nor they are good for those legs of yours. Start drinking 8 glasses of water a day and in just a few weeks you’ll see how much faster the weight loss is going.

2. Eat Healthy

By reducing your calories and eating healthy foods such as fruit, vegetables, oatmeal. white meat, whole grain foods, you will be doing your body good. And you will be shedding off those pounds by weeks. You’ll see!

1. Never give up

If you do not see improvements in your legs in a week, then you should not give up. Those improvements will start to show through in no time, if you use these tips, so don’t panic, and keep doing what you are doing. You perfect legs are almost there!

PS: please don’t forget to measure your legs in the problem areas and write that down. Check your progress every 3 days with the measuring tape. Good luck!

fly with berjaya air

pergghhh.... title...! superb!! intro je tu babes... service? gosh... they really really need to work harder! my ofc mate and i had this experience twice with berjaya air recently how they screwed up our bookings. for one, their call center people and ticketing department people do not communicate. tak masuk lagi they had cockroach in flight flying with us!! damn!! i was seated next to LS when suddenly i thought i saw something crawling.. and true enough it was a cockroach!! and they really need to upholster their seats man!! seriously!! i am just grateful that they can fly and land that thing they call plane!! 

well, anyway the reason of this posting is to share with you, IF in future you wish to fly with berjaya air, book online instead of calling coz by doing so, you'll save money. that is if you wanna save lah... you see, i plan to take joelis with me but since lisa has an event in school, she doesnt want to come, so i am taking joey alone with me. LS helped me to book... and i found out that if i book online, i save rm224! uihhh that is a lot of saving for me lah.. :) so, that is it lah that i want to share :P hhehehe anti climax ke? :P

this is a treat for my kids since i will not be able to bring them together with the staff outing this year... gila babas mahal tu babes!! i need to pay rm2900 lebih kurang for joelis for a 3 days 2 nights stay in langkawi?? ahhh tak yah... baik pi tempat lain :P lagi pun they just got back from spore with their dad :) ok per.. 

you can see the difference, the circled area.

salang pusaka resort - tioman island

more about my recent diving / recee trip. ermm well... what should i say? i dunno but after looking at the diving trip photos yesterday, took it from my friend.. i feel like i wanna say more. so, okay... we might have our project here.. in tioman.. pending management's approval. so anyway, we stayed at salang pusaka, i think, the name of the place. if you google it now (the time that i am posting this :P) i think you are going to get old photos of the place. now, as in today... the place looks much nicer and clean :) hehehe :D
  • date of visit: 4th - 6th march 2012
  • location: Salang Pusaka Resort, Tioman Island
  • room: 1st night i had a very basic room for two.. it was okay for divers.. but for non-divers, maybe a bit boring :P
  • decor: nice after seeing the nicer rooms :P. some are like honeymoon suites :)
  • cleanliness of the room: 9 out of 10. 
  • cleanliness of the area: it was okay, except for the 'lebah tanah' they called them? they are really annoying.. but according to the staff, the bees don't sting? but i guess its true, coz they did not disturb us.. just that they are noisy! and owhh... saw biawaks too :P
  • chalet service: good! 
  • cafe service: the cafe staff/crew were friendly. they are on their own btw, not under the same mgt as salang pusaka resort (note). 
  • improvement for cafe: they need to be on time!! breakfast should be ready by 7am!!
  • food: it was delicious... love the bbq part... and owh the nasi goreng kampung too!! the sotong bakar at night was superb!
  • pool: hello... it is by the beach!! no need pool lah! :P hahhahah 
would i recommend the place? yes, why not :) they have nice beach too towards end of the island. the surrounding area looks happening but we were too tired to enjoy the bar or bistro for the music...  it was a work trip hey ;) for divers, it is good enough... but do not expect luxury :) enjoy the pictures :)

please excuse the model wanna be yehh.. hahhaha :D :P

cheng ho restaurant, wangsa maju

a halal chinese muslim restaurant belongs to the famous amy search :) have not been here for some time. but this week, we went twice. 13th march 2012, the 1st time, we entered, seated, but left a few minutes later because the waiter did not want to change the dvd movie that they are playing. it was a horror movie and because the audio was quite loud, my son is afraid, so we left without ordering. 

so, we were there the next day, was supposed to cook dinner but since was rushing, we decided to have early dinner, started at 630pm and ended just when maghrib. it was a relaxing ambiance for me and my joelis. 
moving to the wangsa maju is not what i really like. the place looked/seemed convenient but to busy. personally if you ask me, i prefer a more quiet place. as quiet and isolated as bkt antarabangsa, i can still have everything there.., from fuel to top up my touch-n-go card! but there is wangsa maju... i just don't know where to go?!... 

anyway, we had a great dinner.. but this was what happened. one of my kids left their handphone there. i searched for it everywhere. and when we reached home, searched for it in the car, nothing! so my thought was, the restaurant! kaiser as usual would get angry lah.. *roll of eyes* he will start to nag bla bla bla... and in the end, he asked me to bring joelis back to the restaurant to look for the phone. and.... alhamdulillah!! the restaurant crew kept the phone for us!! wow... it is rare to have honest people around anymore nowadays. and what happened the other night, really amazed me :)) syabas to amy and his crew! :)
  • date of visit: 14th Mac 2012
  • location:  15 & 17G, Jalan Wangsa Delima 10, Block 3B D’Wangsa, Wangsa Maju, Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia
  • place: nice, clean, okay lah... but somehow it has become a bit boring.. the decor i think.
  • decor: normal for a restaurant, nothing special. 
  • cleanliness: clean :) just that a towel that was used to wrap around the juice blender, i think, should be changed :)
  • service: friendly waiters.
  • price: a total bill for about rm70 something because we took the set. 
  • food: black pepper beef, butter squid, scramble eggs, tofu with thai sauce, gosh.. cannot remember the other one.
will i recommend the place..yes :) 

comment: can the restaurant manager change the menu brochure? it doesn't look nice coz it looks a bit cheapo?

Ilmu @ excel resort

10am: Listening to dato dr fadzilah kamsah at excel training while sending joelis for inspire camp.

Wasiat untuk anak2ku:
1) Jgn miss solat selama mama & daddy masih hidup atau sudah meninggal
2) Baca alquran tiap hari
3) Buat apa2 pun yang terbaik
4) Bantu org
5) Jgn menyusahkan org lain

How does the mind functions?
  • Selagi ibu bapa tidak berubah bgmana anak hendak berubah?
  • Anak2 lebih mendengar ckp guru kerana ibu bapa seringkali mungkir janji (tanpa disedari).
  • Have fruits first before anything else :) (things that I often forget too)
  • *Syaitan kencing berdiri, jadi, nak ajar anak, bapak jgn kencing berdiri ;)
  • Meja untuk belajar, halakan ke arah qiblat.
  • Padam fikiran -ve dgn gambaran2 +ve dgn memberi contoh kebaikan :)
  • Setiap anak sama tapi tidak serupa.. :) berlaku adil lah dengan semua ;)
  • 95% problematic kids come from problematic parents - research done.
  • Kids will learn from what they see their parents do.
Cuci hati
Solat taubat, istighfar, maafkan org, baca quran, cuci mencuci :)

10 reasons not to jog

  1. My grandmother started walking five miles a day when she was 60. She's 97 now & we don't know where the heck she is.
  2. The only reason I would take up jogging is so that I could hear heavy breathing again.
  3. I joined a health club last year, spent about 400 bucks. Haven't lost a pound. Apparently you have to show up.
  4. I have to exercise in the morning before my brain figures out what I'm doing.
  5. I don't exercise at all. If God meant us to touch our toes, he would have put them further up our body.
  6. I like long walks, especially when they are taken by people who annoy me.
  7. I have flabby thighs, but fortunately my stomach covers them.
  8. The advantage of exercising every day is that you die healthier.
  9. If you are going to try cross-country skiing, start with a small country.
  10. I don't jog. It makes the ice jump right out of my glass.

work trip

sometimes, people just need to show that he has power but the real fact he is full of S%$7!! and respect is something that you need to earn and not to force on people... :) too bad.. you are stuck in the so called hot seat with lots of hatred and cursing that people around has on you... :)

sometimes no matter how hard you want to avoid or ignore, we are just human... it somehow affect.. and thinking about it is truly waste of energy and time. it is like a busy bee flying above you and you try to hit it, but it's still there? or better still like a fly who has landed on shit.. and this fly is bringing along the whole big shit with it!! yeup... full of shit!!

i am diverting the incident this morning to my work trip this weekend. at first i don't really feel like going, but if since they need my assistance then i'd go... if you ask me, i don't really wanna go... i'd rather stay home and clean up the house :) but it's okay... work maaa.. :) at least i get to dive :) it's gonna be in tioman this time
