its NOT easy..

It's going to be 2 weeks soon.. of me eating clean.. to be honest, it is REALLY hard for me to not fall for my cravings on junk food..

McDonalds fries is my weakness.. i do not have a sweet tooth hence no cravings for cakes, ice cream, chocolates or desserts.. BUT doesn't mean i have zero urges when i walked past baskin robbins or krispy kreme.. grocery shopping isn't as easy for me like it used to be.. i used to chuck things into my shopping cart with my fav junk food and drinks.. now i have to read the labels.. checking on the calories, fat, sugar and etc.. instead of buying chicken drumsticks, i have to opt for chicken breast now..

In the past 2 weeks, i do have urges to eat that instant noodle.. especially late night and my tummy is growling.. telling me to feed it.. but instead, i ate fruits and almonds.. i need to have a strong mind.. to overpower my lust for junk food.. and i am telling you.. its NO easy task to do so..

Besides eating clean, i have been working out.. well.. there's a slight change which i noticed hence no photos.. haha.. it really takes patience to get that well tone abs which i've always wanted..

So, 80% diet and 20% workout? we shall see in another 2 weeks.. if i could wear that tiny little bikini which i got from bangkok :P

ps: wish me luck!

eating clean?

I've always wanted to eat clean for the longest time.. BUT this time, with my strong determination and will i started my 'eating clean' journey..

I started last week; by doing up my diet plan and doing grocery shopping at Empire Subang

My diet plan consists lots of chicken breast, salmon, cod fish, vegetables, eggs and also herbs

My meals now are mostly either baked, boiled, steamed or eaten raw

It has been almost a week since i started this and been exercising.. hopefully i can achieve those toned up abs soon by March, when i turn 35 :P

The Morning After (TTDI)

It's been quite some time since the last time i did a food review.. and this time i am not doing it coz the food is free.. i am doing it coz of a friend.. his name is Chef Nigel.. i got to know him not too long ago BUT i can see his passion for food..

Last week i finally have the chance to try his cooking and i can guarantee you that his cooking is awesome.. he graduated from Taylor's Uni at Sunway and he is one of the partners at Burger Camp back in Ipoh, Perak..

Recently he moved to KL and got a job with The Morning After.. yes yes, when i first heard it, it reminds me of 'the morning after' pill.. haha..

How do you describe The Morning After?

The Morning After is a place where you can chill, hang out, eat and have a good cup of joe. They serve breakfasts, sandwiches, pastas, burgers, desserts and etc..

The outlet which now i frequent the most is in TTDI, it's quite a nice comfy cosy place to chill

Below are some photos of the outlet

My current fav now

Eggs benedict; two poached eggs on english muffin, smoked salmon, baby spinach and hollandaise sauce

Roast chicken served with salad and mashed potatoes; special request (no cherry tomatoes)

Shoestring fries with truffle oil

Soft shell crab pasta with napolitan sauce and rocket salad

Wild mushroom soup with truffle oil, chunky oyster mushroom and croutons

Grilled salmon with apple and watercress salad, horseradish sauce, daikon and mashed potato

Perfectly grilled by Chef Nigel

Spicy aglio olio with shrimps & zucchini

Yes the food taste as good as it looks..

If you happen to pop by TMA, you can check with the floor staff if Chef Nigel is in.. for now he'll be in TTDI outlet for a month and then he'll be back to The Pinnacle

Aaaaand if you would want to know how Chef Nigel looks like, here's a photo of him in his work area

So far they have 6 outlets which are :-

2 years and counting...

I bought my 1st place in late 2012 and only moved in in 2013.. for 2 years i did not have any open house OR hardly any of my friends come visiting (except for a few ones).. coz it was still very messy and i was on a limited budget.. just had to reno whatever which was necessary..

Finally after 2 years, my place is a little tidier.. got some new storage cupboards, got some decors, painted a feature wall, got a bed for my guest room, done up my walk in wardrobe room and most importantly got a new sofa! no thanks to my mum..

I am very pleased with what i had done/achieved.. a place which i could live comfortably and call my own..

I have a few more items to get and do before i am really satisfied :P

zth Time To Attack rd1 2015..

Sunday was a good day.. i met many familiar faces, had some good laughs, got sunburnt and most importantly i spent some time with the boyf.. although he was busy prepping his car, attending driver's briefing and getting his run

Anyways, i arrived quite early.. was already at Sepang International Circuit by 8.30am..

Transponders were ready for the cars

And so were the stickers

As we all were having lunch and chilling, the Liberty Walk R35 arrived on a flatbed

Barney was on its way out to the circuit

By 4pm, i had to leave before the boyf could finish his session :(

Saying goodbye to him was the hardest; with a heavy heart T_T
