Recap in my last work

Well, this one of the things that I wanted to do during my transition to a new job. I wanted a list of all the reviews and some contests that I had done for my ex company. To all my food bloggers who had agreed to eat at the restaurant thank you all. It's for my memoirs..

From the most recent reviews:-


These are really a lot. I think I miss out 1 or 2 blogs. I can't find it.. Any food bloggers who are around coincidently bumping into this site, if I miss you, just drop me a comment.

This is what I found from the net:-

7 Habits of People Losing Weights and Keeping It OFF Permanently!

1) Expect failure, but keep trying
I'm still trying...

2) Don't deny yourself
I'm not denying

3) Weigh yourself often
I'm doing this right!!

4) Exercise regularly
If only my heart listen to my head...

5) Find ways to add little bits of physical activity into your daily routine
Still trying too...

6) Eat a high carbohydrate, low fat diet
Am trying very hard...

7) Eat about five meals a day starting with breakfast
hmmm.. not much time though............

- from "CNN Presents: Fat Chance" based on research by Dr. Jim Hill, Director, Center for Human Nutrition, University of Colorado

Well, what can I say. I'm trying!

Start afresh

It had been a couple of months I had been trying very hard to loose those weights after stopping my gym workout. I know that I still do not put on my 101% best yet but i'm still trying. With so many temptations to dinners, invitation parties and events doesn't justify the reasons that I should be loosing weight. Well, the good thing about me is I am forever trying. I knew that I had done that, been there and going back to weight I wanted shouldn't be any problems.

Perseverance is the key. Determination and stubborness are the key on losing weight. I had actually started yesterday, to try to control my food intake and start to go to gym. I did an hour of workout, my effort rating is 35%. I know it's not the maximum but at least I have to start somewhere. Furthermore, with not working out for 6 months while pilling up at least 6kgs/13.2lbs, it is just not justifiable. I know, I know, it's just plain silly excuse and I shouldn't be doing it but I'm couldn't help it.

Went to gym yesterday, was a good start. This morning, I took a good morning walk with my dad at the park is a good start. Although my muscles hurt from yesterday's work out I still persisted. My knees hurt as well.. but still I persisted.

Food?!?! How about food? I'm a dessert person, give me chocolate, ice cream yeah, anytime but I'm trying very hard. Yes, taking in control of what I had eating is also a good start. I'm selective with what I put in my mouth... Yes, I need to do some grocery shopping too as the food at home are totally not healthy at all... Seriously!

Current Weight : 66kg / 145.2lbs
Target Weight : 58kg / 127.6lbs
Total Weight Loss to Achieve : 8kg / 17.6lbs
Target every month 2kgs /4.4lbs

Life during unemployment

Today is the third day after my unofficial last day. Life has been fun. A friend came back from Singapore for a week of holiday... So we spend two days of window shopping. Nope, it's shopping for us.. hee =)

We went to Curve for our first day. We walked around, waited for her to do her IPL, ate some german dinner @ Bavarian and watched Marley and I. Basically, it was a lot of catching up. It was FUN!
On the second day, we went to Sungei Wang shopping, ate at Jalan Alor, continued shopping, went back to Jalan Alor to buy fried fritters, and shopping again..

I felt like those rich tais tais going out on a weekday shopping. The feeling was so different but nice.... I wish we can do this more often!

Today, doing nothing much, went to gym to work out.. My first session, torturing, period.

Joyeux anniversaire!

Happy Birthday! Many greetings and wishes either via sms or facebook. I'm turning 31 today. Let me rephrase, I am 31 today. Birthday is suppose to be a happy ocassion where one celebrate it either with friends and family and love ones. Unfortunately, I don't feel happy at all.

A couple of days ago, I was looking forward for today. I even have the intention to post some birthday wishes I have in mind.

Something is troubling me..

I tendered resignation, and now still waiting whether is it possible for the co to release me earlier.. I really hope that they do. I have strong intuition that they will make things difficult for me. They would not let me off so easily. They will with held my pay and will not release me earlier. Why would a company do that? Don't they are afraid that they may have an employee who may wants to sabotage the company. No point holding on to someone where their heart is no longer with the company, right? sigh...
Update: The company decided to release me on the 31st March 2009 earlier then I expected. I know I should be happy but I feel disappointed.

I had made choices that I do not want to make. I''m feeling very bad right now in my heart...

I really don't feel happy at all eventhough it's my birthday.

Finally, after 6 weeks of job hunting, an offer had came in. Had been to 3 second interviews but only one came back. PW had even asked me to go for a third interview but I didn't. I realised that the beauty line was never for me. Food and beverage is always my passion. I attended CJ's second interview but no news. U is the one being offered.

Initially, I was hoping very much to go into U because it is a big mnc. U is a reputable company which will add value to my profile. It will help me in the future. My sis's bf had an offer, and even my sis had an offer. I want an offer too. Then again, it is the profile that I'm going to be responsible which makes me hesitates. I am grateful. I am, really am!

When I received the news, that they had selected me. I was jumping with joy. I want to leave the current dreaded place.

Well, I could say in general the pay package is good enough for me. I'm happy with what they had offered.

Now, I'm to wait for my offer letter. They may call me to collect it even today!

I'm looking forward to work in U eventhough, I'm not really into the profile that I'm going to be responsible of, but I'll do my best. I am challenging myself to it.

For a better future....

c'est la vie!

Life can be very cruel.
Life can be very unfair.
Life can treat you badly.
C'est la vie!

Well, to some people it has been a bed of roses, they just had the lady of luck by their side taking things for granted...

For instance, my sis had been very lucky on her career path. After graduating with a master certificate, she had been offered a job in Klang working with a public listed company. I would said her pay was good among her friends who had same qualification and studying the same course. They are getting much lower then what she is getting. Every year, the company had given her at least 4 months bonus every year and yet she complaints! Never in my life, throughout 11 years of working never... Let me said this again, I NEVER received a 4 months bonus... well, ....

Now, she got another offer, eventhough is this dark and gloomy economy, mind you... yes, she got a better offer and yet higher paid salary.. The other day, the hr from her new company, just called and said they are offering RM300 higher then what they are offering her before.... I was like WTF!!!

What can I said? She is just damn lucky lady. I'm not envious of her, happy for her the matter of fact..

Guess what, her boyfriend had also just been offered another j0b with higher salary and better future...

Her bf got!! She also got!! Why I don't have?!?!?!? I want it too!!!!!

Life is so unfair... Well, that's life babe!
