A Little Throwback and Sad Ankle

Hello! Happy Saturday!

I suppose to go to church today but I got sprained ankle since last Thursday where I fell like a silly little kid. Imagine if I was holding an ice cream lol. I don’t know why…how…did I fell down?! I thought it was the last step of the stairs? Nope. I skipped two steps out of nowhere.

Fortunately by the time I write this blog, the swelling subsided. Thanks RICE! –rest, ice, compress, elevation- and 1 time painkiller.

Okay enough with my sad ankle, let’s have a little throwback to the first week of the month.

We celebrated the new year at my husband’s hometown together with his family. Just a simple celebration with food and drinks (bonus: homemade rice wine is a must lol), karaoke and fireworks! The next day is for a hangover day lol so we didn’t go out. And another next day, father in law decided to bring us all for a hike. Well, more like a “job-day” for the man because they had some cleaning around their rubber plantations up there.

I just love this greeny view – paddy fields and rubber plantations. Have any of you smell the fresh paddy before it turns into real rice? Hmmm i love it!

We weren’t ready for a hike, hence the white old shirts that we found from husband’s old closet πŸ˜… anyway, we had great time!

Another highlight from the week, father in law cook this dish:

It’s like the bitter bean but it’s not bitter or stinky at all. We called it “kumpang” here. πŸ˜… I don’t know what’s its real name. It’s my first time trying this dish and I kind of like it. (bean, anchovies, ginger, chillies and tomatoes)

Back in the city, I don’t know what’s got into me that I’ve been craving a lot for sweet drinks. These are the drinks that I got:

  • ChaTraMue – Salted Caramel Thai Iced Tea
  • Yoyo – Oolong Tea
  • U-Tea – Uji Matcha Cheese Tea
  • Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf – Chai Latte
  • Macao Imperial – Cherry Blossoms Tea

I personally love the Salted Caramel tea although there’s not much taste of either salty or caramel. And of course I loveee the cheese tea yum-yum! I don’t really like the chai maybe because it’s too flavorful? But I managed to finished the whole cup though 😁

I’ve been doing well with cutting my carbs intake but not with sugar LOL! And I got zero workout since last December oh gosh! I really need to start somewhere soon after my ankle is good to go.

Well, okay except on the day when I sprained my ankle. I ate huge carbs of loaded potato bowl from KFC. πŸ˜‚

I finally got the time or more like got the mood to watch Bird Box. I like it! Although I’ve read some reviews saying that it’s a bad movie, I personally love the fears and survival emotion from the movie. And of course afterall, it’s just a movie. Oh, I always love Sandra Bullock!

I think that’s enough for now. My next post will be about my current and favorite beauty products. Until then! ❀

Have a great weekend!

  1. Oh nooo! Hope your ankle isn’t bothering you too much and that it’ll heal up quickly. β™‘ Mmm, the kumpang reminds me of papaya salad. I would love to try that!! All of the sweet drinks you got sound and look so tasty. I used to eat those KFC bowls all the time. They’re soooo good!! I’ve been wanting to watch Birdbox. I love Sandra Bullock, too! β™‘

      1. Oh yes! I looked it up lol. Som Tam is papaya salad πŸ˜€ I love it suuuuper spicy!!

        I still haven’t watched Birdbox though. πŸ˜› soon!


  2. So sorry about the ankle girl! Hope you heal up quick ❀ I really enjoyed Bird Box too- I only wish we could know what they actually sawβ€”but I know that wasn’t the point & wasn’t actually feasible to show the viewers β€œwhat” was being seen (also since it was probably different for each person). Have a great week, Mich!
