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 😅 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. 😅 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. 😂
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!
