First thing first, Happy New Year 2018! 🎊
I’m starting the first post of 2018 with an exercise topic…
We all know exercise is good for health. I’m pretty sure we’re all brought up with this knowledge. But why can’t most of us find time to exercise? I’m one good example. I struggled to even exercise once a week.
Over the years, I’ve tried jazzercise, yoga, swimming, badminton, ping pong, tennis, futsal, cycling, joined a budget friendly gym (RM10 per hour!!!), exercising at stadium and park, and as well as in my home sweet home.
I deduced the reasons why I’m not able to maintain regular exercise schedule as below:
1. No time
2. Exercise gang busy
3. Lack of exercise drive
What’s an eye warmer? An eye warmer is an eye mask that warms the eyes.
I first discovered this eye warmer packet when I stayed at Ana Crowne Plaza, Osaka a year ago. Since it was complimentary, I took a couple home because I’ve no idea what it does and I’m eager to try it.
According to the Kao website, the eye warmer relieves tired eyes and also helps you to sleep better.
Throwback to early this year, I witnessed a peculiar plant growing in one of my pots. As time goes by, it grew taller and taller, and starts bearing very cute rectangular pods.
Can you guess what plant is this? Oh yeah, that’s right. The title post blew it.
After Chester’s passing, I wanted to make a special photobook dedicated to him. A photobook that chronology his time with us, from his gotcha day in 2003 to his very last day with us in 2015. When I make this plan into motion, I knew this will be really my final goodbye… as in letting go. I’ll still love him and miss him no matter what.
Doing this photobook was a bittersweet process. Of course I cried while choosing and looking back at the thousands of photos, especially the last year. Do I have to re-live those last painful moments? Yes, I need to in order to grow up. I have toughen up a lot since then.
Without further ado, may I present you the photobook of my golden angel, Chester… just a sneak peak of the 80 pages album with nearly 600 photos.
A golden with a golden heart. I choose this photo as the front cover of the album. It’s one of my very favorites. It’s on the canvas too. This photo was taken few days after his birthday in 2013 using Samsung S3.
As a collector of many things (read: paper bags, stamps, boxes, bottles), I was so happy to learn about the limited edition heritage canisters offered by Shell; to commemorates its 125th anniversary in Malaysia. Problem was I learned about this promotion 2 weeks late. Surely the canisters from the weeks before has been snatched up, right? Nope. I was wrong. There were plenty left. Seems like no one wanted to collect these beautiful heritage canisters.
Unlike last year’s Lego Shell collection promotion which were such a hit (those Lego were sold out on the day it was released), I saw plenty of heritage canisters sitting at the Shell stations. I also basically didn’t need to show my proof of purchase of RM40 of Shell fuels to buy those big canisters. That’s how unpopular they are.
My limited edition Shell heritage canisters. Aren’t they lovely?
Here’s an update on my vegetables & fruits about 3 months later. They were grown from seeds obtained from kitchen scraps. Enjoy!
My capsicum plants transferred outside to get 8 hours of sun around end of July.
