Chia Seed

I read a lot about how good chia seed is and finally I bought a pack of 200 grams from Signature Market through their online store.

Chia seed are a good source of fiber, protein, and other nutrients. I’m not gonna write down all of its benefits here, I’m just going to share what it does to my body after consuming it for a week.

Overnight oatmeal with chocolate flavored milk

I love how I can ‘play’ with the chia seed with any kind of drinks (except soda or alcoholic drinks I guess lol) or food and how I can mix and topped with almost anything such as fresh fruits, dried fruits or even nuts. Now I can enjoy my overnight oatmeal in an interesting way. Haha πŸ˜‚ Why interesting? Well, for me chia seed is an interesting kind of food; superfood actually. The way it swell up after the soak, but still retain a slight crunch. I’ve been wondering how would it taste before. And it’s actually doesn’t have any particular taste or odour, it’s like eating the sago only without any crunchy bites.

After consuming chia seed for a week, I’ve noticed its benefits to my body was actually pretty awesome. I have a digestion problem. A doctor once scanned me and said one of my intestine is too small? Seriously it sounds ridiculous but maybe it’s true. I know nothing about that and he said that’s probably why I have a problem with a regular toilet visit. Now my point is, with chia seed in my drinks, I can say it helps me with the bowel thingy. It’s twice a day, everyday instead of once every three days. Okay that’s it. Not gonna talk long about that. #gross 😷 but it’s a good thing; so yay! πŸ™Œ

Another thing was, chia seed reduces my food cravings! Even my husband didn’t believe me when I said I’m not hungry when it’s already 1pm. But of course I still eat something in a very small amount. I hope it’s a good thing. But I love food?! πŸ˜‚On a bright side, I can eat any food I love with the right amount for my body. So it’s true then. About chia seed helping in weight loss. I’m not in any progress of losing my weight tho….just maintaining it well. ✌😁

That’s two benefits for me. What about you guys?

I think that’s all for today and thanks for reading. Stay healthy and happy everyone! πŸ’•

Love, Mich 🌸

 

Sunday #1

Starting today, I’m going to write every Sunday about anything. Not necessarily what happens during Sunday tho. Hopefully I don’t forget about this on next Sunday πŸ˜‚ #randompicks

Movie Updates

Me and my husband loves to watch movie together. Be it new or old movies. 
This month, we watched quite a lot of movies together. Six movies in a month. I counted that a lot since he’s always out with his work.

We made a promise that we will only go to the cinema once a month so that we can save our money. But this month we kind of broke that promise we made. We hit the cinema twice in just a day earlier this month. πŸ˜‚ Now we both feel guilty. We watched Renegades and IT at the cinema and the other four movies, we watched it at home. 🎬

Outstation

Hubby is in Sandakan now with his work stuffs and he will be away for a week. 

I really hope someday I could be tagged along with him into that deep forest and witness those beautiful nature with my own eyes. River-cruising at dawn, witnessing sunrise accompany by the forest’s music..aaah I could only imagine now. Wait dear monkeys..elephants..🐘

Weekend Night Market @ Metro Town

Last night, I was so into the mood of eating something from a food truck. It’s been awhile since my last visit to a night market. So I went to the nearby weekend night market, located at Metro Town. 

Packed with people.
Loca KK Food Truck

Been wanting to try their sandwiches and finally I did it last night! There’s a long que last night hence the 10 minutes wait.

“The Sabahan” RM8

There’s a lot of great comments for “The Sabahan” and it’s intrigued me to try it by myself. While reading the fillings ingredients, I was like..really? Tuhau? It’s actually a plant from the Etlingera family. It has this weird and strong smells, but actually tasted good…at least for us the local here 😁 The combination of everything was just great. Juicy and savory! πŸ‘

The fillings are: sesame aioli, sayur manis, anchovies, cheddar cheese, shitake mushrooms and tuhau. Will I buy and eat it again? Definitely yes! 

I really wanted to try something from this stall but the Potato Twisty were sold out and need to wait for 20 minutes for the Potato Oppa. Nex time!

I guess I’ve write enough for this first Sunday post. Will update again soon! Happy reading and happy blogging! ✌

Love, Mich 🌸

Antibody

Good day!

Today I’m going to write about my sickness experience. Just a random post.

Few months ago, I had this back ache problem so bad that I couldn’t even decide whether it’s best to sit or stand or lay in bed. It’s like I’m too young to get that kind of sickness…no? I don’t know why or how did that happened but maybe I did a lot of house chores that requires me to ‘squat’ and stand over and over again. Or maybe my bad habit of ignoring bad body posture? Idk. 😬

After one night suffering, cuz I thought it will be gone after a night rest, I finally told my husband to take me to the hospital. It was terrible. I only can lay down, like extra slow, with my body facing to the side. And waking up was another painful ‘drama’. So dramatic but so true. Damn that moment. I don’t want to experience it again. 😭

As soon as we arrived at the hospital, after the long wait for our turn, the doctor checked me and she said it’s nothing. Maybe I’m too tired..maybe it’s just some muscles’ cramp…hmm okay. I was too weak to even say “really? That’s all”? So I just let it be. 

The doctor asked me to take urine test and get the painkiller jab. I didn’t expect to be doing the urine test so I don’t think I have any ‘water’ for it cuz I already went to the toilet earlier. So the nurse asked me to drink lots of water, using her glass which I expected will be a clean glass. Cut story short, the urine test results was fine. 

Now the jab for painkiller story. We need to go downstairs and meet another nurse for this injection. She asked me to take two tablets of paracetamol, and drinks water using a glass…again I hope that glass was clean. And jab me.

As soon as we arrived home, I feel slightly comfortable regarding my back ache. But not my throat. It feels itchy, burning and dry. The next morning, I’ve caught flu and fever. And it’s last until almost 3 weeks with a total of 3 times going back and forth to a different clinics. 

God knows how much grateful I am after I’m done with the flu and coughing. I’ve been coughing like cuhrazyy… Coughing but no mucus at all. Imagine that? 

As a conclusion, never again I will go to the hospital without wearing a mask or drink from a glass from the hospital. Should have bought my own water. It’s my fault I guess. 

Antibody. I was already sick that time. Not enough antibody? Idk. Have you ever experienced the same?

That’s all for today. May we all stay healthy all the time. *fingers crossed*

Dog Cafe

Hello! Happy Sunday 😊 Yesterday, after church service we went to a dog cafe. It’s my second time visiting that place and as always the puppies greets us warmly with their barks…i guess πŸ˜…

RM25.70

It’s rainy so I ordered hot drink instead of cold. I ordered Matcha Milky Tea, while my two other friends opt for fresh mixed juice.

Cuteness overload

It’s a cafe where you can hang out there and have a drink or food with your dog, and you can let your dog play with other customer’s dog. You can hang out there too if you don’t have a dog….like us. You can buy dog treats at the counter. Believe me the dogs will love you straight away 🐢

Since it’s my second time there, I’m familiar with the two dogs owned by the cafe’s owner. The two dogs were Logan the husky, and Rino the shih-tzu. 

My friend, Ellen with Logan
That’s Rino in the middle

And for the other dogs, we don’t know their names or best to say, we don’t have enough time to ask their owner what’s their names cuz we’re so busy trying to take a decent photo with the cuties…they’re so active. πŸ˜‚ Thanks to their owners for letting us cuddles and play. 😁

I once dream to have a dog as a pet before but after a long serious thoughts, I decided not to. Not because I don’t like dogs, I reallyyyy love them but I don’t think I’m good enough to deserve such cute and lovable dogs. Cuz you know…having pet is not like having them as toys. They need lots of love, extra care, sacrifices, lots of decent food…and what’s else..you tell me. πŸ˜ƒ

My sister got Cassie as pet back in hometown and we love him so much. As soon as my sister had a baby, Cassie’s been a bit ignored. Not in the terms of food though. Oh well. I hope Cassie will understand. Lol.

That’s all for today. Have a nice day! πŸ•

DIY Distressed Jeans + Thriftventure

And you say, thrifting is boring?

This is my second post about me writing how much I love rummaging clothes at a thrift store. 

Few months ago me and my sister went to the nearby thrift shop and it was madness cuz both of us came home with full bag of clothes. I got myself a total of 10 clothes! Cuhrazzyy i know. πŸ˜‚ One of those tops really caught my eyes but I don’t think I got a suitable pants to pair it with….until I found my old jeans.

I decided to DIY distressed this jeans with some guides from youtube lol πŸ˜‚ 

As I’ve mentioned on one of my post in this blog, about how not-so-creative I am, the outcome of the jeans was the proof. πŸ˜‚ There’s some mistakes on how it should be done from the way I cut, loosen the thread and so on. Gotta learn that techniques better baby! Well, it’s my first time doing this and I guess it’s not that bad. No?

I love this top! 

Thanks to my cool husband for being my personal photographer haha 😘

My yesterday’s outfit of the day. Another top found from the thrift shop. I bet I have to pay more than RM40 just for the top if it’s not from a thrift shop. But this babyy, it costs me only RM3! πŸ™Œ imma happy gal.

It’s not about brand, designers or how expensive your clothes are. It’s about style. Fashion is what you buy. Style is what you do with it. 😎 So don’t call me cheap πŸ˜… I call it an adventure – thriftventure. πŸ‘—

My next mission is to find a new shoes/sneakers – brand new or thrift? Probably brand new. Shoes from the thrift are wayyy more expensive. You tell me why. 😁

That’s all for today. Thanks so much for reading. 😘

Hometown + Wedding

Spent the last week of August at my hometown and got to attend two weddings of my friends from highschool. One of it was my bestfriend’s wedding, Jessica.

It’s an honour to be one of her bridesmaids on their special day. Though I’m married, I’m still picked as one cuz it’s officially a tradition for the five of us to be each others bridesmaids. 

#JHGetHitched #310817 

Congrats girlfriend! Wish you happiness and joy! 😘 God bless your marriage.

Loving my make up that day. We hired a MUAH for the four of us and she made us feels like we wanna take lots of selfie LOL πŸ˜‚ I love how light it feels on my face but still it actually helps covering my flaws. At least for that day πŸ˜‰

So thankful to my husband Kerr for being cool and patience while he sits in the church without me beside him. Luckily, Scott was there (Ellen’s boyfriend) so they had each other. πŸ˜‚

We actually sang on her wedding day, after the prayer blessing. Jessica, the bride requested this and Cindy found just the perfect song. Singing that lyrics makes the four of us teary but we made it till the last beat. This song will stuck in my head forever. ❀

………………………………………………..

On the other notes, one of the highlights while we’re in hometown was food of course.

  1. Mango + Banana Smoothies
  2. Sponge Cake
  3. White Pitaya / Dragon fruit
  4. Watermelon Juice

One of the reason why I love going back in hometown is it’s easier and a lot more cheaper when it comes about food and sources. 

And for the cake, I was so glad my mom asked me to bake for tea time that day. I was not in a baking mood during that time and fortunately the cake turned out well and yummy. Even my lil sister (who’s not really a fond of cake) asked for more. 😊 

It’s truly a happy moments when we’re sitting there together despite having even the simplest meals. πŸ’•

That’s all for today! Thanks for reading.

Oh, hello September. 

Love, Mich 🌸

60th

No matter what, it still counts.

Happy Independence Day! πŸŽ‰

Just a very quick updates for this beautiful and meaningful date. 

On a different note, one of my bestfriend got hitched today. So happy for her! She looks so beautiful today 😍. Will post about that soon. 😊

Til then ✌

Love, Mich 🌸
