How do you know if you made the most out of your Lockdown?
Some have set goals; daily or weekly to accomplish during this lockdown to keep them occupied, some have just moan and shared how bored they are through social media, while some have taken this time to build bonds with their kids or re-engaged on hobbies that they lost.
Neither is wrong, different people have different way of coping and its always what’s best for you so I’m not going to judge you whichever course you take or change along the way for better or worst.
As for me, I wasn’t born with a silver spoon and was off working since I was 16. I enjoyed every single job I took up, from coaching netball, teaching adults to rollerblade, which is scarier than you imagine, when they pull you down along with them. I dabble in selling ice cream, modeling and standing around giving out flyers. Name it and I’ve given it a go! Nearly even considered pumping gas at a petrol station.
Working has been a norm to me, knowing that I could buy what I wanted and live by myself sooner than later. Yes I was the black sheep and was too stubborn to listen, I wanted thing my way but I am willing to work for it.
This lockdown have given me the time to reflect that a break is actually really nice. To be fair, I’m still working and doing online session at 6am on most days, but much lesser than I usually work. I have always managed to find a sweet spot of balance to ensure that I enjoy the job that I am doing. The last month have been both fulfilling yet intoxicating, never would I imagine going for a run at nine in the morning right after doing 3hrs of virtual session. That’s usually one of my peak hours and no way I could go to the park and listen to birds chipping away and naming every squirrel I see. I can’t wait to do it for another month and appreciate every moment of being around the trees across my house. I do miss my daily cycle everywhere but I am putting some effort in cycling around my neighborhood and I can tell you every nook and cranny of my circles around my park. I’m going to say it! “Too blessed to be stressed”
I’m not even counting down the days or wondering of when I’m going to party or take my next flight. I do miss some friends but technology is far advance than sending a pigeon across. I’m glad I have Sam who sings Disney songs in the kitchen and my cat that wouldn’t stop annoying me. Oh yeah we got engaged I designed my own ring, so I had say yes, jokes. Would talk more in my next post!
For now if you’re not doing what you really want to do, but instead are succumbed to society saying that you should be productive, e.g. read a book, get a new hobby or upscale yourself. Are you even living and enjoying this break that you might never have in the next decade or so? I say do you!
As you know about 6 month ago we welcomed two beautiful cats in our life. Yes we were both a dog person but it just wouldn’t work at this moment in time with our schedule and commitment to work. We both secretly love to work, workout and just do random thing that a dog will just throw us out of our routine.
I honestly am clueless about cats, still am! At most time they don’t make sense, they don’t listen, they do as they please but they have so much personality that I just enjoy coming home and hanging out with them in between my sessions. Yes I prefer cats then my workmates but don’t we all ;)
We finally moved and settled into a larger house as well and I can’t be anymore thankful with the space we have, the cleaning I have to do for a larger space…not so much. I moved out ages ago and it’s honestly the best decision ever. Here is why!
4. No one tells you what to do, so you don’t do anything which is also a bad thing because you realized you haven’t put away 3 loads of laundry and been wearing the same socks for a month.
5. It also comes with a lot of advantage like throwing parties, no one nagging at you, and doing basically what you want. #Adult
6. You will appreciate every single furniture in your house because that shit is expensive or u can choose to sit on the floor, buy second hand item or DIY. Yes I know its expensive in Singapore but leave your comfortable cushy life with your parents and find someplace within your means, if u have to share a room with someone and pay $800-1000 a month do it. If you are afraid of difficulties and hate being by yourself, do it! Don’t allow your parent to make you feel bad of staying home because they would miss you. My relationship with my family improved when I left because I make time to visit them and also appreciate time more with them when we spend time together. Be an adult and stop wasting your money on expensive bag and shoes instead start living and learning about life on your own two feet because I sure did with mine!
As you know i'm celiac or Coeliac disease which is permanent, autoimmune disorder that causes a reaction to gluten which is found in wheat, barley, rye and oats. Coeliac disease (pronounced see-lee-ak) is a permanent intestinal reaction to dietary gluten. In coeliac disease the cells lining the small bowel (intestine) are damaged and inflamed.(click here to read more)
In other words I can't enjoy the simple things in life, like a warm toast dripping with peanut butter, pizza and most importantly burritos,,, (cry me a river) This girl is so over it and i thought i share with u some easy to do meal even my 12 year old self could manage it, still can't manage the dishes though.
I miss a good stir-fry noodle but do not lose hope, there's option for us , most asian noodles are made from rice well not all, here is an exact list --> (noodles) so we could possible be spoilt for choice such as Kway Teow/ Bee Tai Mak/Mee Tai Mak/ Laksa Noodles / Mee Sua/ Bee hoon / Vietnamese Rice Noodles!
I love the Bee hoon because its brainless, just add water and let it soak, easier than finding a boyfriend these days and also i consider it much healtheir option than the rest because its so thin.
Yes this is basically it.
Make a massive omelette and chop them up like this !
Proceed to chucking everything in a pan with some olive oil !
So if u like it spicy add some chill with it else just throw whatever sauce you can find in your fridge,i went for dark soya sauce, fish oil and sesame oil , honestly don't ask me why.. they just happen to be in my fridge, throw the noodles in and give it a good stir and done! 10 MIN
I am now 28! I still choose not to believe it (btw) and age is merely a number, it doesn’t stop me from doing anything besides of course crazy stuff like; last week I wanted to take my rollerblade and go down a massive ramp but thought twice as I do not intend to break anything.
Isn’t it weird that the older you get the more you fear being injured. There’s to much consequences having a boo-boo like lost of earning and also all the things you can’t do when your gammy, trust me I broke my hand and realized it’s importance when I had to get someone to tie my shoelaces or my hair. Oh yeah taking out a wet sport bra with a broken arm is a mission, a lot of visualization involve and planning if the head or the arm gets out first and continuous jumping on the spot like an idiot. Oh well, that didn’t stopped me as I was at work the next day with an hourly supply of ibuprofen.
Sam got me a pair of pet shrimps : 9
Sam's birthday and mine is exactly a week apart and there's lots of cake and food between that 7 day ! I am not complaining.
Two of my lazy breakfast ideas.
1)gluten free bread eggs cheese and avocado
2) soy milk papaya banana pumpkin seed and honey!
Michael dropped by over the weekend so Sam got some man time besides just staying at home with me and singing Disney : )
Was invited by ASICS for a staycation at the new WAREHOUSE HOTEL for 2 day of activities with a bunch of ladies! One of the best time ever and also the food, was so good and yes TANYA POPPETT IS LEGIT ! Being a person trainer I'm very fussy of my exercise program and trust me it was no walk in the park with Tanya, purely just training no bullshit like some other fitness program i shall not mention ;)
Finishing of the night celebrating our win with NZ FLYER! Fall in love with netball all over again with this team and next season is about to start and can't wait to get on court.
I've lived in Singapore for 20 years now and I haven't paid so much attention to it until recently , such a beaut isn't it!
My weekend meat treat for the week made by Sam, so glorious. I usually don't eat meat maybe once a week or so or sometimes never but if Sam the chef I'll eat it all! hah
Back to studying anatomy enough of my life! xx
